View Full Version : so now we have a "TECH ONLY" forum too?

I remember some people talking about needing information help should try the help forum ... but i guess i didn't realize that everyone was talking about moving ANYTHING tech related into a seperate forum.


the picture forum started because some were offended by certain pictures.

the DC forum was started because "nasty minded" political threads were just flooding the forum.


certain problems solved ... understood



but why a tech forum? it's not even just "tech help" ... anything that says anything about something that uses electricity is being stuck in there.



so when is the "All threads starting with the letter D" forum starting up? :shrug:

Negatory on the Tech Only forum. I even saw a Directv thread moved over there.

I don't like it either, it's not like these issues were cluttering up the front page. I do believe part of the reasoning behind it was since we don't currently have the search function available, a person needing help could probably find the information they needed there.

I agree also. I don't mind the forum, just didn't know it was that wide ranging. I had an XM vs. Sirius thread moved over there, and I don't expect another response now.

Why not save the time and create a forum for just threads started by me. It would be really easy to move everything over there...

I'm sure he'll really enjoy this feedback, too.

I better make sure he sees this thread.

I think that's a good idea...if the threads are only moved after they've had their time on the front few pages.

It's not that it is hard to switch over there, it is the fact nobody will see it over there and it will die. If someone has a Directv question for me, I'll probably never see it. Ya want to bet a dollar on the KU-MU game?

I agree. The plus side....since the SEARCH function no longer works here, is that all the tech threads will stay together.

That's all well and good if you don't mind your thread being ignored. I'm sure not going to go over there and check for Directv threads. I think we are solving problems that don't exist.

Actually if you put the link on the main page, people will see it. I do. The reason the original one sucked is because it wasn't linked on the main board.

Well, I dunno...I haven't even posted over there to see if I get no responses yet so I don't think I'll think about bitching until I may have a reason to bitch.

There are quite a few threads with MANY responses. I don't know what you guys are talking about.

Then why did you come out in favor of it when you have no experience with it? I saw a Directv thread get moved over there today and I didn't remember it got posted till awhile ago. Also, I'd like to know what problems it is solving. I don't remember the board getting jammed with tech help threads.

Well, I'm not sure who's moving Sirius and DirecTV threads over there...I'm not sure that was the intent when agreed to do it.

Anyway, without a search function, it was very handy (and we had several people suggestin as much) to have all of the computer-related threads in one place.

As for threads going there to die, hardly. There's a ton of traffic over there.

The Help Desk is shit, as it is done today. I can almost understand computer stuff being on there, but DirecTV? Satellite radio? A ****ing Gamecube thread?

Someone fix the ****ing search function. I don't care if you have to wipe out attachments from before three months ago, nuke the first 6000 pages of the girly pictures thread, or shoot some people in the head.

I take full responsbility. I did it just to piss everyone off.

Seriously though, about the 80th time a thread was posted about getting rid of spyware or dealing with a slow PC, I mentioned having a tech forum where we could sticky a few things that constantly get the same response might be nice. Some dumbass mod took me up on it. I think his name was something like Bob dumbass Dole :D

Has the search feature been completely abandoned? I realize why it was disabled, but has it been determined that there is no other solution than just eliminating it?

Is this a sore subject? I'm not trying to pick a scab.

I would assume Kyle would let us know if he had an answer, but honestly I have no idea who kyle is or what type of person he is. I guess I was hoping for a "yes, it's gone forever" or a "f*ckin chrissakes..we're working on it"

Guys, you're making too big a deal outta this. Just give it time to get used to it. Once you do, you'll be checking the tech forum every day. I agree that it's a good idea since we have no search function.

Mods,
do we really need Sirius threads in there? Or how about the Gamecube thread? Seems that one should've been in the gaming forum.
