Do you think a "Gadgets and Perphierals" section would be a good idea?
I say YES.. The reason it would be a great thing.. We are getting a lot more gadget type things coming to the market. General Hardware is a starting point, but there's just to much stuff that we can branch the whole "gadget & peripheral thing under..
however only if all topics around "i" were banned, such as the following:
ipod iphone ipad.
Nah, give them a sub section of it.. that way we don't have to see, if we don't want to, what their ranting about this time..
thats not a bad idea.
i 2nd that.
I know that your post was tongue-in-cheek, Sly, but we do not want to alienate the people here who like and use Apple products. Regardless of your opinion on them, they need assistance with the problems they encounter and helping them is what TPU is all about.
I do not think we would need subsections. That is just more hassle for the mods.
True.. that is getting a little more out of hand to throw out there..
Voted against it. Change is good But IMO, I think it will just add clutter. If seomone needs help with them they can post it in General Hardware.
sorry if what i said came out wrong i have nothing agenst apple products.. infact i own an ipod.. and would like an iphone.......
i voted yes, as long as it's part of the index, and has several subsections, so i don't have to root through a load of s
looks like you'll need more moderators aswell
I doubt there will be so much traffic in there that you can't find anything. Is there ANY section of this forum you can't find anything in?
Why not just rename General hardware to Gadgets and Peripherals? Is there anything left for General Hardware with a Gadget/Peripheral section?
sometimes i click on the thread tools and find endless pages of claptrap that has nothing to do with what i'm looking for so i usually give up
That's the beauty of the Search function, amigo.
Yeah don, but I bet a "good" part of TPU doesn't get the "search" function..
please clarify if gadget includes usb missile launchers, cell phones, mp3 players. gps devices ?
After looking through general hardware, it looks as if about half is system related (with some threads that really should be in their appropriate section instead of GH) and half peripherals/gadgets.
I know that the search function work just fine, but thought it might tidy up GH a bit in the same way the other sections do (ie. MB, Memory, OC, etc.)
I suppose what gadgets were included would be up to you W1zz. I see a lot of the tech these days as more or less handhelp computer-type devices (phones, multimedia players, GPS devices)
I suppose that Gadgets/Peripherals could be a subforum of GH in the way that we break out the respective video cards in the GC section, but the creation of subsections does not usually get a very warm reception.
Side note : Where can I get one of those USB missle launchers?
Make USB love, not USB war.
Link please!!! I want one!
Hmmm... He comes out of the closet. Oh no, a fruit lover!
Back on topic:
Yes, IMO, it should be for things non-computer(PC) related; ex. GPS, Cell phones, audio players, video players, lasers, video cameras, DSLRs, handheld pocket cameras, toys(like robots), other tech et cætera.
Google usb pole dancer
Google usb missle launcher
Most people post in GH because of traffic
I knowingly post in GH for traffic
i thort i already was "out of the closet"
if you have been to Whirlpool (australian discusion forum mostly about telecommunication) you scroll through most popular theads... 75% has the ipod iphone or i**** insert letters here.....
i just dont want to see this place taken over like whirlpool lol...
here is alink to what im talking about.
Battery of USB missile launchers
Yes, I agree..
Lol I had made this suggestion myself on 22nd December 2008!!
Yeah, I know this was brought up before. I just always liked the idea and thought I would bring it up again to see what people thought.
My poll has a better yes to no ratio than yours lol
Either way is fine with me. I just use CP and New Posts...
I think the big issue here is traffic and I do not see how dividing GH into more subsection or adding another will solve the issue.
Right now the active topics in GH take up less than a page when you enter it. To my mind that means that we have enough subsections.
Separate names with a comma.
