Topics I've Started

Can't mark forum as read

24 January 2016 - 11:24 PM

When I try, I get a message telling me I don't have permission to do that.

Upgrade Complete!

01 August 2015 - 08:01 PM

I finally got all my new parts and upgraded my PC. The installation went well, with no space issues or awkwardly placed screws, and everything booted perfectly first time. I had to change a few of the parts that I had originally intended to get due to availability, but this hasn't affected the performance, just the ease of overclocking.

This is what I ended up with:

Motherboard: MSI X99a Godlike Gaming

Mo_Bo_box.jpg Mo_Bo.jpg

CPU: Intel i7-5930K

CPU_box.jpg CPU.jpg

CPU Cooler: Corsair H80i GT

Hydro_box.jpg Hydro.jpg

RAM: 32Gb G.SKILL Ripjaw4 2800MHz DDR4

Graphics Card: Gigabyte 6Gb GeForce GTX 980ti

I hope to have a chance to sit down sometime this week and tweak the OC, but even without any, I've been able to do UHD gaming on maximum settings with everything looking nice and smooth.

The new 'Disallowed topics' rule

01 August 2015 - 09:08 AM

I would like to open some discussion on the new rule that has been posted about disallowed topics.


I myself am deeply against the idea of telling people what they can and can't talk about.  I do appreciate that this is a private forum and there are no granted rights providing freedom of speech and expression.  However, I've always felt that telling people what they can and can't talk about is a very, very narrow step away form telling people what they can and can't think about.  I'm sure we can all agree that any stifling of thought or expression is not something that we want or consider healthy.


I can also understand how from a moderation perspective, the idea of having to devote resources away from where they're needed to quelling the same discussion over and over again can seem frustrating and counter-productive.  If it is a problem of resources, would having more moderators help?  Or is there a way in which the members of the site can help to make the moderating easier?


If there is any alternative to telling people not to discuss certain topics, I would hope to think it's worth looking into.



This has been puzzling me for a while now...

Why is the font used for the name and date of the last poster in the Business and Law sub-forum bolder than in any other sub-forum?



Current Survey

29 December 2014 - 08:30 AM

Did the authors of the current survey specify that they were looking for responses from people within a certain demographic?  After being asked my age, gender and field of employment, I was returned to the GDNet site, so I assume I'm not withon their target demographic.
