That would eliminate apprentices and members in areas that may not have certain licensing requirements.

Hi I guess. I don't like the whole giving our hard earned knowledge out to HO for free. We all paid our dues to be where we are and to do that don't set well. Like of like a trader of the trade

My intention was to draw you into further revealing the truth.

Yeah, I can kind of be a butt hole at times, especially when the post seems phony. So far most of the rest of your responses seem to be within guidelines, although who knows.

I'd like to see the gallery of other plumbing work, seeing what other professionals do is a great learning tool. However, if the work is less than perfect others will let you know.
I don't think you're a butthole.

In the 24 hours since I registered on this forum I've already seen a few cases of spamming, so I can see why you and probably everyone else has their guard up.

Also, there's a lot of confusion in this thread because I thought I was joining a DIY forum through Plumbingzone. There's a link on DIY Chatroom that says "Plumbing Forum"... so, here I am.

Yes, we think it's a good idea to offer people tips on small repairs - especially on a national forum. We're not telling our clients how to install water heaters, or encouraging them to do their own bathroom remodels. But if they have a leaky faucet and feel confident about fixing it themselves, why not point them to some helpful advice online?

I guess there's not much point in hanging around, especially given the overall reception... I've tried to be candid. If you click the link in the first post, you'll see that site list services, license number, BBB standing, and photos of previous work. Literally everything plus the kitchen sink.

Take care and good luck.

If your not interested in sticking around get one of your techs or that smart dressed man on the website to come on here and share with other plumbers.

Tell him to stop counting his millions and hang out with the crew.

Biz got it right, wait till you get to know me.

And there goes another one. Seems people are too quick to come to judgement. Guys, if you want this community to grow, we'll need to be more friendly. Let the mods do the interrogation and judge weather or not the newbie is or is not authorized. This place is getting smaller, not larger.
