I have noticed some posts asking for help like "how to do a traverse" or "I am new to something" related to very basics surveying, that made me think about who are we giving a hand and instantly recall some construction site discussions like "I have 30 years of expertise but I don't know exactly what I'm doing", this is what you get when unlicensed people recieve help on doing a job that shouldn´t be doing.
Can you imagine a lawyer or a doctor (medicine) doing a job with no license?, what about licensed lawyers, doctors or engineers helping unlicensed people to do their jobs??
I´m from Argentina, here you are a licensed surveyor only when you have studied and passed 5 years at the university, I also know that in the US, in some states you got to do some practice work before doing the exam, go to the university, or have an engineer degree to get the license, but the general idea is the same (professionals must be licensed to do their jobs).
Of course sharing ideas is always good, so I'm not against that at all, what I suggest is to reach a professional discussion level that will help licensed surveyors to do better their jobs, the basic aspects of surveying should be learned at the university or looked up in books.
