What? You think you should be able to "wish" it to upload??
I'm talking about personal files ding dong not copy and paste. It's like you calling yourself a plumber when you don't know standard thread from NPT.

So the "Platinum" members decide on a contractor rating system based on pictures? OK

As an exercise, walk through a flush beam freestanding deck with roof and railing, you'll see where the issues come up. From there, it's all ledger and attachment.

Not true, but it's at least the bare minimum. Seems the guys on here who puff thier chest are the ones that have nothing to show us. Nothing! There's a reason for that.

C'mon, he posted a job picture at least once that I remember. Something to do with an outdoor "spigot" that wouldn't seal.

I post pictures of my work.

You are too busy causing problems with new members asking questions and old members to care. Maybe it's that sweet looking "cool" toothpick hanging out of your mouth that causes such confusion.

If it looked great...you'd have a picture.

You posted a picture of the framing.

Irish...some know you too well. Sell your BS somewhere else.
