    Forum upgrade complete

    Any chance we could get a darker skin? All the white at least for me is giving me a headache pretty quickly but I may just have sensitive eyes nowadays.

    Beat me to it. I still have one of those sitting around in my junk box somewhere...

    Is the GTX 1080 still relevant?

    Just get a 1080 and be happy with it. Getting a 1080 TI wouldn't really constitute future proofing anyway as the performance increase is so small relative to how much more you are spending. Saving that $250 and either putting it away for a new GPU down the road or even towards a second 1080...

    Diagnosing Ping spikes in League of Legends?

    So around a year ago i upgraded my internet from a 3mbs connection to a 10mbs connection and recently with no hardware changes I have been noticing a general ping spike while I am gaming whenever my mother opens nearly any webpage on her laptop. This issue did not occur when we were on a 3mbs...

    iPhone 8 or Galaxy Note 8 ?

    As someone who had 3 early flagship androids and had nothing but trouble with them I'm hoping to get a pre-order iphone X as my iphone 6 plus has been the only phone that has lasted 2 years before starting to give me problems.

    Keyboards?

    I've been using a corsair strafe rgb with cherry mx red silent keys and love it. Can't go wrong with it and if I am not mistaken it ticks all your boxes as well. A little peace and quiet when typing can sometimes go a long way, especially if you have people around you.

    I redesigned GPU-Z using the Fluent Design Language

    Wouldn't matter to me if it was done in a manner similar to the OP. You seem like your just looking to complain about anything honestly. Do you fuss at people who do song covers, fan art, fan fiction? People these days are always looking for something to make an issue out of where none exists...

    I redesigned GPU-Z using the Fluent Design Language

    And? The OP clearly stated he was just interested in doing it out of curiosity with no intent to distribute or appropriate the IP or claim that his creation is anything but a what-if rendering of GPU-Z using modern language. Either complement or critique his work or just say nothing at all. I...

    [FS][US] SOLD

    You interested in any PSU's over 900 or is that too far above your needs? I have a Corsair AX1200 that is nearly double my current needs after scaling back my computer.

    Two GTX 1070s in SLI worth it?

    If you fill in your system specs first that could give us a much better idea if that would be a viable option for you.

    Finally found them in stock! It has been a good weekend!

    Request: Bring back clubs perhaps with some changes.

    Well as of right now there are 6,773 people visiting the site and only 77 of those are members. Then it becomes a question of how many of those may be casual members and then how many members we have in total that actually log in regularly and contribute to the community. 31 might not seem like...

    closing clubs....

    Just going to point out you seem to be the only one even remotely stuck on this whole totally family-friendly vibe that is taking the attitude of god forbid kids see something potentially distasteful. From reading the mod replies that did not factor into the decision at all so the point is...

    closing clubs....

    Seems to me at least we have lately been raising too many children even in my generation to have skin far to thin to survive the real world. How much of what you deal with as far as complaints would you say is people being thin-skinned rather than a more valid complaint?

    closing clubs....

    I agree completely however it is simply human nature to some people to ignore the rules regardless of situation and circumstance and do what they will. Clubs in general I feel had little effect on the behavior of those people as well. Even if clubs had never been a thing the behavior would have...

    closing clubs....

    While it seems you are simply playing devil's advocate the point of comparing vaping discussion to sex and drugs is a bit ridiculous. No one would advocate allowing display of sex toys or drugs and implying as much is silly. Also I'm just going to leave this here...

    closing clubs....

    I understand what your saying however I feel given what seems to be at least the general demographic of the site children that would still be at that "highly impressionable" stage seem to be for the most part unicorns. Would I be right in assuming that contributed in part to GN being moved...

    closing clubs....

    Unsure about helping to improve things on the whole but as for the clubs bit I did start kind of a tangent thread focused on suggesting ideas on how clubs could be handled differently as to not interfere with the main site and with no attack focus about the issue...

    closing clubs....

    I'm disappointed with the overall decision on clubs given how the polls in this thread and my own show significantly more support for at least having a more open discussion and what seems to be a selective definition of what constitutes tech-related but oh well. At least we got some expanded...

    closing clubs....

    @sneekypeet Can we get a confirmation if clubs with a tech focus are still A-OK and perhaps a re-examining of the vape club due to the technology involved in more advanced vaporizers? Technology even if it is not computer related I feel should still be fair game in the scheme of things. ' Was...

    closing clubs....

    Not sure how this is really relevant? Are you simply saying you don't care for smoking or that you would be opposed to the vape club being allowed back. Context is key.
  22. Darkleoco

    closing clubs....

    Agreed, the amount of tech that is being shoved into those vapes sometimes can be pretty impressive indeed. Edit: Would love for that one to be allowed back at the very least as I could use some advice on getting back into vaping Cannabidiol but preferably with a higher quality vape than I had...

    If you had $500, $1000, $2000, what would you spend it on?

    500: GTX 1070 and a niceish dinner. 1000: GTX 1080 TI and save the rest when I feel guilty. 2000: Save for a down payment on a new car/save it since it's 3 months rent.

    Request: Bring back clubs perhaps with some changes.

    I don't believe it would be necessary if it was re-integrated but if it ends up staying separate I think adding it to the top and making it feel more like a seamless part of TPU could help it have enough visibility to make it separate but potentially functional far more than it is currently.
