Tim,
If you could integrate the NACHI illustrations into the app that would help out a lot of members to understand things onsite. A graphic is worth a thousand words https://www.nachi.org/gallery/

Just a thought...

A question is entered into a category/type... members that are willing to receive a "type" of question can sign up to be notified when a question of the type comes up... preferably the question could be sent to several inspectors at once for the particular question type to at least try to ensure a response..

Could you make a header on the left side of the page for those in immediate need? It would be nice if they had a question and could get an answer almost ASAP. Good for the new guys and the older ones to help.

Something like a IMMEDIATE HELP, tab?

Just an idea that i think a lot of newbies would use...but who knows.
Thanks for your consideration...
I routinely receive calls...
and answer or forward onto others...
who will respond same day....
and not complain (about lack of compensation).....

Are you seeking some compensation?
if so.....
advertise as such and not complain .......

There are still those willing to provide information
without compensation....
to help others...
and provide information on request...

Just came back to this thread and love how quickly and efficiently this idea has evolved. This association IS a brotherhood and there is a great feeling of pride when personal competitiveness is tossed aside for a moment so that association-wide improvements can be made. Well done all. Great job Russ and Nick for both of your parts and all who will take time out of their schedules to help your fellow inspector when needed. I'm feeling inspired!

Russell is usually full of good ideas and Nick is usually smart enough to make them happen. Just imagine them two as if they were in the TV show "The Odd Couple".

You started the thread as you somehow viewed this as a new phenomena....
It has been a part of NACHI for over 10 Years.....
