Wow, I really can make a difference! Momma was right...Alright alright, I put some GUIDELINES in the intro section. It's the first post as a sticky. This should help a little more for new members. Now where did my wiping lash go, I need to go flog some diy's now? 😈

You are 100% right on target, but as you are seeing, you're shoveling schitt against the tide. Your concern has always been my biggest problem with this site too. It amazes me how petty a bunch of bad azz tradesmen can be sometimes, like a little old lady wagging her finger at kids walking on her lawn, while they turn around and tell others that they need to have a thick skin! It looks like you were unfortunate to come on right after the change in formats so "the prime directive" wasn't as obvious, but regardless, you still see the bigger picture. Everyone has different motives for being here, and some do not want to give out too much information. It will only take a few posts to determine if they are involved in the trade or if they are bullschitting.I think you all are missing the point, I am not wanting non-plumbers here; I just think that you are chasing away some potentially quailified candidates by not having somewhere that actually states what is expected from new members.
I absolutely love most of the replies to DIY'ers, I get a lot of laughs.
why? explain your opinion...so you rather have unknown people join and ask all kinds of questions to find out they dont belong down the road??. or are you that lazy not to be able to write a paragraph about yourself?..why are you so scared of an intro??Besides, I've always thought that the whole idea of an intro is stupid, IMO. I almost never reply to the new intros. It feels like a desperate need to give and receive affirmation to me, like we're at a feaking AA meeting or something.
Hi, my name is Bob and I'm a plumber.
