Online Community News: A Big Welcome To The Wiring Regulations Forum!
If you’re a visitor or contributor to the IET’s Wiring and the Regulations forum, you’ll be aware that we are moving it into the Engineering Communities family to bring all of our discussion forums back together and create one home for all online discussions at the IET. So why are we doing this now?
So… some of the eagle-eyed community members amongst you will have noticed that we have a new ‘Wiring and the Regulations BS 7671’ category in our discussion forum where topics related to electrical installation, electrical systems design and other related topics can be posted. The Wiring Regs forum is still accessible in it’s current home for the time being, but towards the end of February it will be locked and only available in a 'read only' format.
If you have any questions about the introduction of the new category and what it means, please read our FAQs and, as always, feel free to pop any questions in the comments below.
As part of the work to bring the Wiring Regs discussions into our forum, we are also going to be introducing screen/user names for our community members!
If you’re a long standing or previous user of the old IET Discussion forums you will have posted topics and replies under a screen/pen/user name. However, when we launched the new online community, members were encouraged to use their real names instead. We’ve been looking into introducing screen names for all of our community members and encompassing the Wiring and the Regulations discussions into the forum is an opportune moment to do so.
We'll share more detailed information about the introduction of screen names so look out for that in a future blog post!
