I think it's time for another welcome thread as I see three new members here today and I know there are more.

Welcome to the forum, and as some other members have stated already in another thread, you are in the best place you could possibly be to learn from the experts, I know I have.

Welcome new members, you found a good place.

Again I agree with electure.

Wow that's like 3 times in one week.

Kidding aside electure is pretty sharp himself.

Bob and I have pretty much "agreed to disagree", but we still remain friends.
C'mon, you "lurkers" should post your experiences. They'll help us all, I think...S

Welcome to all the new Members!!! You have found one heck of a great place to come discuss the trade - and more!

There are many, many smart people here - all of which enjoy learning as much as sharing knowledge.
So don't be shy... post away!

We cover many areas of discussion here - from specific topics such as the NEC forum area, to Building Codes at the Building Codes for Electricians area, to anything that comes to mind - in this area (the General Discussion area).

For those interested in Non-US systems and equipment, there are two areas here for these topics. One covers Canadian Electrical installs, the other covers things off the North American Continent - like Europe, New Zealand, etc.

Check out the Electrical Safety areas here - OSHA area and Product Recalls area.

We have 3 photo areas - one for NEC violations, one for anything good or bad, and one which covers old / antique equipment.

We also have an area to discuss Computer related issues.

For those wishing to discuss technical things, or looking for schematics, we have the Technical Reference area and the Electrical Theory area.

Welcome aboard!!!

p.s. There's a thread in this area which contains pictures of many ECN Members. Feel free to contribute your picture as well!

Well, I'm hardly in the same realm as the guys that have posted before me in this thread, but I also would like to extend a warm welcome to my new friends.
