Default when forum rules are updated...

This is more of a suggestion than a "problem"...

The forum rules were recently updated. But what exactly? I happen to know that note 2 or 3 was changed, but for some who might not be intimately familiar with the rules, figuring out what has changed and noting that might be a tad difficult.

I wonder if you might consider use the forum rules thread, or even a separate but related thread, to highlight what section of the rules was updated and why. That way people can make sure to hone in on, and read, the changed section(s). You could also provide background info or the motivation for the change if that would help to reinforce the rule or otherwise provide substance.

Anyway, just a thought.

Yes, I too was not certain what has changed. Maybe highlight the change, and say whether it is just a rewording for the sake of clarity or a change in policy.

One of biggest changes is in the notes and in the recognition that much equipment uses switching supplies that have live primary circuitry.

These topics are now allowed on the forums for discussion/repair/design of etc although any inherently unsafe material will still fall under normal moderation and be acted on accordingly.

Everyone should occasionally familiarise themselves with the rules, particularly those offering services and selling products. For most regular posters it is really 'common sense and courtesy' to apply at all times.

Thanks. I spotted that change but could not be certain if that was the only substantial change.

Other than the power supply thing it's just mostly tidying up the rules and making them more clear and concise. We went from 18 rules to 12.

I just saw the same cat twice. I think there's been a change in the Matrix.
