Since there is no longer a "Novice Class License" (only Technician, General, and Extra class), is "Novice Ticket" a good name for this thread catagory?

Maybe "New Hams", "Newly Licensed", or "Just Starting Out in Radio" would be a better catagory name.

"Technician Ticket" wouldn't work any better because "Technician" doesn't necessarily imply newly licensed. There are lots of Techs that have had a ticket for years.

I can probably compile some web addresses about getting started in ham, where on-line practice tests are, how to find a ham club, magazine names, ect... as a resource for those needing information on becoming a ham. It could maybe become a "sticky"? Most of it would link to areas of the ARRL web site and QRZ.
What does everyone think?

If you notice, most of the forum names on ORR.net are a bit tongue-in-cheek, as is "novice ticket" ...of course there is no novice ticket/class/license anymore.

If confusion reigns, we could change it to something more obvious.
