Why this forum doesn't suck
 
  1. I don't have to flip through 5-9 pages of arguments over who's right about the rounded off framerates for a graphics card on crysis with ultra high details. Anandtech comment page...
  2. The users here aren't jerks and just give their opinion without feeling strongly offended by other users' opinions. *Cough gamefaqs->pc hardware board *Cough
  3. Arguments here come in a objective manner and is usually on topic without personal insults. Again gamefaqs could learn a thing or two.
  4. Ratio of experienced pc users are greater than the lesser informed. You know a forum sucks when all you see is "1st tiem build plz halp" for 16 pages.
  5. I haven't encounter any users that has made silly posts to annoy other users yet.

Probably because its such a small community and a lot of the top contributers have been doing this for 10+ years which is a long time.

I've been working/playing with computers since I was around the age 10 and that was 20 years ago. I started on old school IBM machines and went to a TRS-80, Commdore 64/128 then to a 486 in 1991.

I started by moving piles of rocks from place to place for counting and memory storage. It was hard though with all the tricerotops and dipalodocus and allosaurs kicking them over all the time, and the brontosaurs grazing? well might as well forget about finishing the spreadsheet. Talk about a system crash . . . :biggrin:

I like the community. Everyone gets along quickly, and there's a sense of knowing one another through intimate and wildly inappropriate hardware exchange.

ya, this is a sweet forum. I read it all the time. I've only been into pc's for about 2 years now. Before that, i knew NOTHING. like litteraly i had no idea what the difference between intel and AMD basically. Lol

I just checked and there are only 960 members, as listed in the forum contribution page... so that doesn't include mods or reviewers (not sure how many of the 960 are actually active though). But I do like how it is smaller then some of the US forums.

I like the forum, finally a real Canadian one I can use for my incoming big FS/FT now that the change rate start to suck.

Each forum has their own strong and weak points but it's great here :thumb:
