The Generator Technical Forum is designed for the Power Industry professional, and so we ask that our users respect their peers and adhere to professional standards. Users must be registered to post threads in any of the forums. Spammers and poseurs are not welcome. Site management reserves the right to review and verify any registration data and will revoke suspicious or false registrations and delete forum threads, as needed, to preserve the professionalism of this site.

In order to become a registered member, you first will be asked several questions designed to verify your activities in the power generation industry. Upon successful completion of the registration, a verification code will be sent to your email that will allow you to activate your account. Registrations from "free" or personal email accounts are subject to administrative approval before being allowed to log in. Site administrators will manually review your application and notify you of your acceptance for membership.

Please recognize that we want to maintain a forum comprised of industry professionals who are interested in participating in an atmosphere of collaboration and learning, not persons whose only interest is to erode this collegiality.
