best way to quote icc codes in post is to go to free codes site

http://publicecodes.citation.com/icod/IC-P-2009-000019.htm

For 2009 codes and cut and paste

Example from 2009 IBC

Introduction

Internationally, code officials recognize the need for a modern, up-to-date building code addressing the design and installation of building systems through requirements emphasizing performance. The International Building Code®, in this 2009 edition, is designed to meet these needs through model code regulations that safeguard the public health and safety in all communities, large and small.

This comprehensive building code establishes minimum regulations for building systems using prescriptive and performance-related provisions. It is founded on broad-based principles that make possible the use of new materials and new building designs. This 2009 edition is fully compatible with all the International Codes® (I-Codes®) published by the International Code Council (ICC)®, including the International Energy Conservation Code®, International Existing Building Code®, International Fire Code®, International Fuel Gas Code®, International Mechanical Code®, ICC Performance Code®, International Plumbing Code®, International Private Sewage Disposal Code®, International Property Maintenance Code®, International Residential Code®, International Wildland-Urban Interface Code™ and International Zoning Code®.

This is annoying.

If this forum is as valuable a tool as it seeks to be, I should be compelled to return daily, if not more often, to check my posts and the current goings-on.

This is much different than some obscure forum where I may be more inclined to fire-and-forget a post, and then need to be reminded if a reply ever happens.

Instead, let's anticipate lots of replies, so instead of discouraging me from posting after I forget a couple of times to UN-check that box and get bombarded with notices, please let me opt-in, rather than forcing me to remember to opt-out everytime (better yet, let it be a user preference!).

PS. While typing this, I could not see the curser - post took much longer than it should have due to difficulty in editing because I couldn't see where the cursor was.

Got it, thanks.

Here is the tip I wrote about email subscriptions.

Email Subscriptions: At the top of every Topic is an Envelop Icon. Selecting the icon will send you notifications of the most recent posts within the Topic. You can turn this option off by simply selecting the icon again.

When you make a topic or post a reply, next to the Cancel button is a check box that says, Alert me when new reply appears. This box is already checked. If you leave it that way, you will receive updates to replies on the Topic. Unchecking the box stops you from receiving these notifications.

Thanks, now I don't have to sue the ICC for an ADA violation, but apparently I've got to do that every time I post?

Another thing that would be nice is to be able to unsuscribe from posts, I have a smartphone that is set to ring a loud bell when I get an E-mail (I'm hard of hearing, wear hearing aids, and you guys have to make provisions for us old disabled guys).  As it is I can be in a meeting and a loud bell goes off, I check E-mail only to find that I have a notice from you that says "Fatboy says Hello".

1704.1 General. Where application is made for construction as
described in this section, the owner or the registered design
professional in responsible charge acting as the owner's agent
shall employ one or more special inspectors to provide inspections
during construction on the types of work listed under Section
1704.

I created a workaround until you upgrade the forum, I did a "Reply with quote" to your last post, deleted the text and pasted-in my desired text.  Unfortunately this can only be done replying to a post, not a new topic.  I guess a guy could create a new topic with a saying or joke, then immediately reply to his own post by using the "Reply with quote" then editing his saying or joke.

I see what you  arer saying, and these items will be part of an update we will be sending out within a short period of time.

And since this is on the Internet, aren't we in the 21st Century already? 😛

Joking aside, I appreciate the feed back.

Kyle:

 

I think it much more important that we be able to quote code sections rather than just create fancy font, note that I couldn't quote codes by coding them, for instance [quote] code section[/quote]doesn't quote the words "code section" but displays the UBB tags, I'm going to try something more complex below, I can't preview to see if it works but bet it doesn't, the below shoujld show a parrot thumbnail, by clicking the thumbnail it should show a large image of the parrot.

[url=http://www.dickseibert.com/birdcontest/Parrot0387.jpg][img]http://www.dickseibert.com/birdcontest/Parrot0387_small.jpg[/img][/url]

I'm editing to state that it didn't work, I also see that I misspelled the word "should" as "shoujld".  To be successful this forum should be brought into the 21st century.

I just came in to suggest the same thing, this forum would have it all over the others if ICC staff could give input to code intepretation questions. For instance, some Special Inspection firms contract directly with contractors, others contract only with owners, the 2006 IBC (2007 CBC) says:

1704.1 General. Where application is made for construction as described in this section, the owner or the registered design professional in responsible charge acting as the owner's agent shall employ one or more special inspectors to provide inspections during construction on the types of work listed under Section 1704.

I always interpreted this as meaning that only the owner or the DPOR could employ the special inspectors, but some special inspectors say it's perfectly all right to contract with contractors.

What about activating spell check?  What about activating a Preview?  What about allowing UBB code extensions in Firefox and other browsers (note that my attempt to use UBB Code to create a quote in my code citation above didn't work leaving the quote tags)?  If not UBB Code why not allow HTML, which is actually much better allowing for much more creativity for those who know HTML language (and might even envourage thsoe who don't know to learn HTML).

Staff will be on the Forum, however, Technical Opinions/Interpretations are something that will still be done through our current process. But staff will still be on the Forum, participating in as many conversations as possible.

Going along with your other questions: Specll Check will be part of an update we will be sending out shortly. You can already preview you post, as it is the last icon on tool bar in Post View. And I don't necessarily understand the last question. You want straight up coding allowed so you can alter fonts and text to stand out from other areas of your post?

You can already do that.

 

The options in the tool bar allow you to modify the font accordingly, as well as allow you the ability to add links and other formatting aspects.

The toolbar, and the Application for the Forum works with our Sharepoint site, which is MO based (hence the toolbar looking very much like Word's toolbar).

Have ICC Technical Opinion staff weigh in on topics of discussion from time to time.
