Well, it's up to you, I guess - and my answer's probably a touch biased! But you'll find a lot more content going up on there. Got big hopes...

fair enuf hawkeye, just offering up some discussion rathur than trolling ;) Atomic being a unique product and so is OCAU and Hardforum (I'm sure there are a few others) To stimulate the marketspace is worthwhile for both the business interests and the community alike. The saying "be greatfull for what you have got" shits me to tears. If I had a shit sandwich why the fuck would I be greatfull for it? (not insinuating Atomic is a shit sandwich btw..) There is great potential in the Atomic forums, its a long way behind the main players but also has a lot of added value to offer. Appreciate the feedback tho David, No doubt one day someone will find a way to take the .au tech scene to the next level, hopefully Atomic will lead the way ;) Oh and anyone with a hot and barely legal niece send me a PM... Stupid Google chrome didn't pick my shitty spelling up well enuf. *edit Betz for God 2012!

While it'd be great to see, say, OCAU, Atomic and Whingepool all merge, each forum has such different vibes that I think it'd get weird and angsty so quickly. Not to mention PCPP would feel left out :<

They can stay left out. I decided to go trolling yesterday but apparently it's going to take three weeks to reset my password.

Err...OCAU and HardForum are connected...Never noticed that before...? Why not just join PC&Tech Authority to Atomic...Considering they are owned by the same guys right? Never really joined OCAU I think that was the one I've looked around before...Or was it... I only otherwise frequent another slow forum but one with some very smart people that being Binary Revolution, the thing is if you ask a question on there they answer you at times with incredible brilliant and intelligent answers...Although its a hacking/phreaking forum.

The reason we keep it separate, and I think this is important, is that we aim at very different readerships. For that to work, we'd have to really harden up our rules - what the Atomic users think is okay would make the average PCA reader faint!

I'd like to see the look on the average PCA readers face if they saw a LN2 Overclocking session :)

I really don't know what everyone is complaining about. Considering that Atomic isn't an international (or is it) brand and that it does in many ways fill a niche (although I'm all for the hot neices if they are about) I think the site traffic is fairly reasonable, I know it's not what it used to be but then very few sites, let alone forums manage to survive 11 odd years.

Well, the newsletters are different to the forums... are you suggesting the site's merge? Or the Forums?

Again, are you confusing 'the site' with 'the forum'? Atomic traffic is fantastic at the moment, while forum traffic is going down. And a goodly portion of site traffic is in fact global.

I was talking about the mag actually, the mag being the reason most of us came to the forums in the first place.

Ah, that wasn't that clear :) Yeah, the mag is purely local, but it is worth mentioning that the front page gets a lot of international traffic.
