Why is tech talk in with "The Geeks now" ,seems odd now.

 

Also why with the like system it feels like Facebook now.


Life is like a Straw , ...... it sucks.

Really like the new layout but the headings in The Box section might need to be renamed or added to since GPU section is gone. All the gpu stuff is in this now:

Processors, Motherboards & Memory

So, should this be renamed bc most all new threads were in gpu section, with cpus, boards, and ram rarely commented on. Most seem to be upgrading the gpu with the slow down in cpu wars... Maybe name;

The Parts/The Pieces

It was a tough decision to work out what to compress and merge to try and reduce the number of sub-forums and improve the traffic while keeping things related.  Because GPUs are being used for more than just graphics nowdays, I felt that putting CPUs and GPUs into the same area and just referring to them as processors was a fair tradeoff.  If it's mostly GPU threads, then that's just what'll happen.  But it makes it clear where people can post about CPUs, motherboards, and RAM, too.

Because while it's a general catch-all for tech items that don't fit anything else in 'The Box', it's also a conversational place, where people talk about random tech-related topics they're passionate about. Being a more social forum, we decided it should be with the other social forums.

It doesn't happen on Safari.
 
It only happens on Chrome when I am logged in.
 
That's strange as all heck :S

YouTube bug.

Did you just know that off the top of your head? Or research it just now and find it?
 
Either way, surprising that it only happens on Atomic, but thanks for the link!

the reply box; can it be white font on black background too please?

 

Not only will it help me with the bullshit eye stuff; but it also really breaks the theme apart.

It may be possible for the plain text box, but it'd kind of break the RTE, I suspect.

Thread Titles.

When you choose and open the thread they come at you at the top of the page like a hell of a big SHOUT OUT.

Daily Updates seem to have been implemented for everything I ever commented on from 2009. Filled my inbox up real quick! 
 
On the other hand it reminded me I havent been on here in a while, so maybe iot was the marketing team?

Let me know if this is still an issue, I checked/changed the defaults for notifications, but I'm not sure if that's for your current account or only newly made ones.
(you can, of course, change your own defaults in your profile - my settings > notifications, or something)

Probably been mentioned already, but I'll mention again.

 

I can't edit my posts.

 

I made a typo I went to fix up.

 

I can quote, multiquote, report, share on media.  You get the idea.

 

AD

 

WTF.  I can edit here?

 

The option is NOT there on my post I just made in Green Room.

 

edit again.

 

AND NOW I CAN!

 

Something fishy going on here.  I see where the edit button is, but I swear black and blue that when I replied in the Green Room, the button wasn't there.  when it appeared here, it was "There" again.

Nich is probably playing with something.

 

Or else we can blame him anyway.

 

 

We have a member group that can't edit.  Unless you were put in that for a period... I'm not sure.

 

 

But I still blame nich.
