Thank you, Marcel.



Inspectors are supposed to be observant.


I mean, an inspector wouldn't open a service panel and assume that it is the same as the past ones, would they?



We are trying to do something good for the general membership. It is not easy to keep EVERYONE happy. Please consider that before you comment.


We are happy to consider constructive comments, via email, that can help us move forward but what we decide to do is what we decide to do...and sometime things slip through the cracks...sorry...for volunteering.

Of course not. You drive because there's no sane reason that reading the instructions again would change how you start the car.

Honestly, who among you first read the little blue arbitrary and exclusionary note before jumping to the clever meat of the quiz? Anyone?

There has been a rule in place (since I've been a member) that stops at six wins per member per year. Technically it's my fault for assuming that would be the case - silly me not stopping to read the instructions on how to start my car...

I also get that the final arbiter is Marc - he took the time to create the quiz, the rules are whatever he wants them to be because - well because those are the rules. And we can form whatever damn opinion that we want on the arbitrariness of the rules based on how we've seen these quizzes evolve in the past, which, come to think of it, is sometimes pretty arbitrary.
This committee puts in more time & thought than you could ever imagine. We really care.
Perhaps if you would learn to read & comprehend you won't disappear
for three weeks and drive a cab like last time.

And guess who was the one to jump in first.

It doesn't seem to matter if there is a forewarning of change or not.

When one acts like a Blue Jay in a feeder, others less experienced Inspectors don't have a chance.

When there is a recall on your car, I hope you read it.

It would be appreciated if the Experienced Inspectors and CMI's would give a chance to the Newer Inspectors and Student Inspectors.

These are posted at random during the week and we invite all Members of the Association to participate.

Students are also welcome to participate with a chance to win a case of ("Now That You've Had a Home Inspection" Book.

So join us here every week. https://www.nachi.org/forum/f27/

I think the failure to follow simple, clearly articulated instructions/limitations disqualifies the entry.

QOW is supposed to be challenging. Consider reading and following the instructions associated with the QOW post to be an integral part of the challenge. I may just bury something like "skip question #3" in the instructions the next time I post, just to keep it interesting...
