Now I am not looking to step on anyone's toes here but I quite like this particular format of ECN. I remember that a few years ago, we had a poll about who would like to change over to a newer type of Forum and this is now used at that Other Forum, but it seems so impersonal and at least here, you get thanked for submitting material and posting replies. This matters a heap to me anyway, what are your thoughts on this?. No disrepect to Bill Addiss on this topic, he is doing a great job!!!!!!!.
sparky has the idea right it depends on the posters. Trumpy may be use to Ham radio bbs where the topics run all over the place. I believe most of the electrical boards try to keep some order to topics, this enables the user to find topics of intrest. I had another board move my post because it was in the wrong topic area, and that is the way it should be to keep things in order. We have a chance to learn a great deal from the bb listings.

Pseudo, In Trumpy's defense, I think it would be disrespectful to name the "Other Forums" because as Mom always said, "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all." So, I think Trumpy is trying to broach the subject without causing offense. What good would come from him naming the other forums?
Stop dancing around the words and get to the point!! What do you really want to say?
By the quote above, it seems that you don't mind throwing out an offense. Why don't you name some forums, and give your opinion? Starting with ECN.
Tell you what. I'll start. I like the membership here at ECN. I've spent time at Holt's board, and never felt at home there. I was a moderator for a short period of time at Tedesco's board, and I like the software that he uses better than here. I can't speak for any other electrical forums.
Why do you list NFPA as your home page? Does it belong to you?
I'm sure that this thread will be locked shortly. Moderators, throw on the cuffs.
