Wait why did HWC get chosen? Doesn't Linus have his own sub-forum just like Esther on the NCIX forums? It's not that I'm not welcoming Linus, but just wondering.

Have you seen the NCIX forums? This kind of thing is much easier to implement and keep track of in vBulletin. Plus, I sorta like it since it allows discussions that aren't tied to a retailer's boards.

Agreed or limited by said boards own policy regarding other retailers.

The more I think about this the more I like the idea....... plus CC coming we need more members.

Are you saying there is someone out there that doesn't get my mom?

That flies in the face of common knowledge around here....

This is exactly the point. Linus Tech Tips is not an NCIX-branded initiative. It's certainly sponsored by NCIX, and I have a job at NCIX, but it is a COMMUNITY endeavour, and I have pretty much free reign in terms of how I want to manage it.

I believe HWC is the best hardware community in Canada, and (while maybe not the largest) among the best in North America.

So here I am.

Some of us for the 2nd and 3rd time


On topic, At first I was kinda against this. Influx of new members usually means a bunch of problem members all at once (like the forum spammer yesterday), and the 'new posts thing' is a bit much...

But then I said "Well, its not nearly as bad as DanSpam..." and carried on my merry way.

There is no way that I would have funneled a Q/A section to the NCIX forums as their forum software/platform is truly horrid. Good bunch of guys and gals over there, and kudos to them for putting up with such a terrible platform implementation.

But yeah Linus it might be a good idea to space out the threads a bit. My only concern was that a member posts a help thread, and it gets lost in 8 'Tech Tips' threads when we hit the new posts button.

But it is a great way to get some fresh blood in here...and to funnel some new members to the folding team....
