    I sent one in. It was pretty simple, but hope to save hours of grief. Just trying to educate new inspectors as to intelligent design vs being a corner-cutter.

      What about NFPA-72 National Fire Alarm Code, or NFPA 13 or even NFPA-1?

      If an error exists between differnet Codes how is this handled ?
      All of the NFPA documents are consensus standards and follow the same process as the NEC...the only difference is that they are not all on a 3 year cycle. I believe that the Standards Council addresses issues between the various standards.

          I agree.

            Agreed. I would also extend that to the entire code making process.

            Three year code cycle is very unneccesary as well. Six would suffice as far as I am concerned. Of course there would be many fewer books sold, and many fewer code update classes to pay for and 1/2 as many license renewal fees....etc.

                      Sometimes. :grin:

                      Now lets be honest, your dishing it out straight in most of your posts, you have to be able to take it to.

                        I had a list of about six or eight that I never got around to writing up. Some of the info was argued here so I'm certain with 136 you've covered some of the same ground. :grin:

                          I sent in 10 or 11. Not quite sure because I sent one twice accidentally.

                          That feeling is what prompted my delay (almost too late) in submitting any, or looking back at my notes to bother.

                              He's trying to say that he empowers himself to complain about people who complain. :smile:

                                I sent in 8, but I am only counting it as 7, so there will still be a possibility that I can keep my perfect record. So far, 100% of my proposals have been accepted (all 1 of them)!

                                But of the 8 I sent in this time, 2 contradict each other. I mean they can't both be accepted, as they try to fix the same problem in two completely different ways. So if one of them is accepted, I will discount the fact that the other was even submitted, and will still have a chance for a perfect record. :grin:
