Yeah HWC might be a smaller coomunity, but seems rather large and at least it is active, lots of big forums, they are pile of members just using 1/2 of the forum, becomes boring, lots of violence and personal assaults.

I also have learned a lot at HWC, and even though occasionally we argue with other users on different hardware parts *cough enaberif*.. I still respect them, and thank them for all the help and brain usage they have put for me. Let's just say, everybody has a different perspective, point of view and choice of hardware, so it is not a must that everybody will give same suggestions. Some users might have had luck with different hardware parts that other didn't..

But really I used to be much more active in other forums when I first registered here, for the first 2 months I would just walk in the park, maybe pick up an apple, throw garbage, have fresh air and leave lol.. But now, I'm much more active and have started learning quite a bit more.. now it is more like the park is my home, and nobody gonna mess with me here :P..

Lastly, yes one thing very nice about this forum is everybody if not experienced have adequate knowledge in hardware, at least some sort, we don't have people asking questions like "How do I put a processor on the motherboard and put the heatsink on it".. it isn't bad to ask, but imho you gotta see what you ask lol..

I think the major difference is the age group of most members; from the different threads we had lately, the majority of the members are adults. Heck, we even have a few Elders...

That makes for great threads and opinions are not bashed, but instead recongnized and accepted.

Each forum has their own strong and weak points but it's great here
Now if you only would Fold for us... 54196 is the Team on the move.

This forum is by far the most enjoyable, though I do spend a fair amount of time at the Liquid Cooling at XS and over at OCN, which is also a pretty friendly community, though you need to wade through a bit more BS.

But HWC sort of feels like "home"

And unfortunately due to reasons of this nature I have become less active than normal.

I think you still hold %100 activity though....I hope you don't let some of the schoolyard fisticuffs hold you back...it's nice to be nice and this Forum is great for that...but a little smack talk is good for the soul....Breath a little Fire from time to time.
