Change "Arms Access" banner / tag to "Pro Electrician" "Professional"?

What would you guys say?

I assume everybody with the current Electricians Arms tag is an actual Professional Electrician? (Been a while since I've admin'd here to be fair)

So I'm squishing out content that doesn't make sense to a newbie to make it a bit more appealing.

Wondering if 'Pro Electrician' (needs be short) would be better than "Electricians Arms Member" or any version of that that's shorter.

So just to make this clear - this is a yes or no option and we don't have time to discuss lots of other options. It's either change it to Pro Electrician, or keep it as Arms Access.

At least for now lol

Poll runs for 2 days.

GO!

Edit: I've changed the question.

When I Applied for mine, I was pleased to find that I had to supply relevant information to prove that I was actually and currently working as a professional electrician.
if everyone has been through a similar vetting process the odds are good!!

I would say yes, but consideration will need to be afforded to retired Electricians, who, although no longer practice their trade were non the less "Professional Electricians" when they were working, sort of dismissing the input they would have made during their time on the tools. May be "Jedi Electricians":p

A doctor is still a doctor when they retire,
so is a scientist and many others that i wont list.
If you want to keep the tag after you retire, i think you should automatically do so.
people who want to drop the tag could ask for it to be removed?
p.s. i Love the jedi electrician tag idea.

That’s confirmed what my missus has been telling me for years then :tearsofjoy:
secret of a good marriage is accepting that a woman is always right, even when she ain't got a clue.

Likes, and Agrees, could be separated, more clearly people seem to be agreeing when they may mean LIKE I have fallen into that trap when trying to like a post, only to find I have only agreed.

Agree. I liked the old system of like/dislike and agree/disagree - nice and clear.

This has been suggested in another thread and Dan is aware. Can we keep this on the Arms topic and not side track. Ta muchly.

Go for "Trading Electrician" (i.e. actively providing services), "Retired Electrician" (obvious), "Electrical Consultant" (those that are both the former but not actively trading, instead providing thier knowledge 'as is'
