Im pretty sure w1zz will make sure that when he does leave that TPU is in good hands. Its w1zz's baby TPU and he will make sure it doesnt fall apart after he leaves.

i'm pretty sure 2/3 the people on the forum will do what i'll do - if w1zzy leaves but it doesnt change, i'll stay. If it changes, i'm gone.

assuming its not an elaborate april fools joke, which is entirely possible. Legendary troll, anyone?

The irony is that without the comments and hoopla of it all I would have never found this site. I primarily read toms and anandtech, though in part because those 2 are allowed under my workplace filter while others aren't.

My opinions on the use or not using the most up to date drivers doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things, I read a lot of review sites and would have taken the information and just compared/compiled it with other reviews I have read.

If your heart isn't in it anymore, I wish you well in your future endeavours which I am sure you will excel in. I am only sad that your last review is the first one I read.

I noticed that once the driver update was posted the thread mostly quieted down. I actually was bored enough to read the first 23 pages of comments before the heatsink conversation caused me to skip to the end :)

stop being dirty


at any rate I'm sad about this for me but experience tells me it will be good for W1z so it's hard to be too sad. I mean shoot how much more can we ask of him? it's time he took care of himself rather than all of us.

besides this happens all the time, the majority of those who were here when tpu started have gone already and no it's not necessarily that there was somethign wrong, sometimes it's just time to move on and do something else. Think of it like going to college than moving on to work, family, etc. you don't tend to hang out with all of the same people or do all of the same things. C'est la vie.

good luck W1z hope you have more fun at wherever life takes you next.

I was more thinking along the lines of wizzard leaves, whispers something like "look for my coming to the east at sunrise" and then.. wait. Something ultra nerdy and damaging to my character is being exposed on the internet. Before I go into the details of elven and hobbit lore, I'll just stop here. :laugh:

Sometimes you reach a point where enough is enough.
I would hope you would just ban the offending parties.
Their just loud mouthed kids anyway.
If their adults then I feel even worse for them.
The review was fine, read it again Wiz.
Do yourself a favor.

There is nothing wrong with that review.
It's just a good ole case of loud mouthed morons doing what they do.
Run their loud ass mouths.
Funny thing about those people.
Their always the one screaming "help me!"
and their never the ones taking any time to help anyone else.
Pathetic.

Same here. Tom's is horrible, I used to visit it but now I can't stand it. If TPU becomes the same, I'm picking up and heading back to XS or OCN, but if TPU is at least mostly like it is now, I'll stay

W1zz, I'm very sorry to see you go, but I'm sure it'll be for the better in some way or another

Something that's actually weird is selling community sites, i mean its like a society, w1zz gets advertising sponsored because we spend all the freaking time over here because of his reviews and well us. Some people would feel a bit insulted to be sold like this. I mean, why fell that way about comments? I don't feel insulted if I don't want to because, mostly only people i respect can do that.
Why take it that harshly some comments? VGA wars is a very serious emotional thing we feel, and that isnt all that bad, just compare to console fanboyism. I for one buy the one is best, sure if nvidia launch something new and i cant afford, something deep inside me wishes it would fail.
I mean the subject of ATI and NVIDIA is sensitive to outbursts of stupidity as in Wii, ps3 and x360, but it all works because it makes for good competitiveness. If I am a doctor and i treat some wound i might get some harsh words, but that is because people mught be in pain and thats something we do when we fell pain we scream and swear. Im not really good in writing, and i must have been redundant and stuff since this post is not a essay.
All in all, TPU is like a safe heaven from the lack of knowledge i see in my country. Everything i know about building, OCing, tweaking etc i get from here. And its awesome. TPU is the only forum that doesnt hurt my eyes too. Its well structured and pleasant to read.

And about that banned comment, i would think that it comes from someone in our forum, like no one that's not an active member would give a damn about a admin leaving, like we do, its just that he was in the anger part of the process, i would see myself thinking something like that in someway, but my reasoning would be strong enough to see that its unfair and just wrong.

my opinion is, w1zzy can take a holiday/backseat and let the place run itself. eh doesnt need to sell out to avoid the limelight - he just needs to pass someone good to pass the reigns to, to do the video card reviews for him.

I won't go to another site.
I'd rather go nowhere at all.
When I first came here years ago.
I couldn't even install an OS or reformat a PC.

Now I don't even need to call tech support.
I can build my own pc's from scratch.
This site has allowed me a great bit of freedom I would of not had, were it nonexistent.
Wiz made a great thing here.
We all made a great thing here.

Seriously, I'd rather go nowhere, than somewhere else.
I hope I speak for the majority of people when I say
"please take some times and reconsider".
I don't even use ATI.
I've never been a fanboy of anything and honestly don't even understand the whole fanboy thing.
There has to be more to it than a review though.
So whatever it is you decide to do Wiz.
I wish you the best in your endeavors.

Software A lot.
Benchmark Scores Its fast. Enough.
Some of you guys don't understand.

You spend hours, weeks, months, and eventually years trying to gain respect, making good software, taking time with your reviews, establishing yourself. Only to see a bunch of fucktard fanbois from both sides jump on a bash you thread about the most anticipated GPU in all history, when it is a huge flop, you say so and truly know it, you being the one who actually use it, experienced it, tried it, ran it. And yet they still keep on with the fanboi bullshit?


I would go berzerk. I had a hard time staying tame when BoFox was going after me like I was attacking him personally when he had nothing but second hand gossip to support his claims. Never tried any of his own experimentation. Right now W1zz I bet is feeling like here are a bunch of fucktards who have never even smelled the hot exhaust from a Fermi, yet are either

A) Attacking me for my review as Nvidia is da bestest ever, and you games are crap and no one ever plas those games like Dirt 2 as nvidia our god haven't blessed it yet for us, and HAWX is a ATi only game with its fancy 10.1 and you are just out to bash Nvidia as you are spewing all this stuff about our beloved card Fermi.

or

B) ATI fanbois crying and whining that the Fermi was beating the 5870 by 15% when the new drivers promised a 15% increase. why don't you redo a whole set of benchmarks you imbicille, we can't have you beloved red 5870 dethroned due to your drivers...wah..wah,...wah....wah....

If it were me I would have taken the site down for a week, taken a vacation to someplace and partied, then come back and started the bannings.

All I can say is..... WOW! I never really got into reading the Fermi threads, so I am kinda in the dark right now. :( I'm truly sorry this happened to a great contributor to the tech community, and on his own site. :mad: Please w1zz, take some time off and away from all of us for awhile. You built such a positive thing here for so many people. I will respect your decision either way. Good luck my friend, and thank you.

Some of you guys don't understand.

You spend hours, weeks, months, and eventually years trying to gain respect, making good software, taking time with your reviews, establishing yourself. Only to see a bunch of fucktard fanbois from both sides jump on a bash you thread about the most anticipated GPU in all history, when it is a huge flop, you say so and truly know it, you being the one who actually use it, experienced it, tried it, ran it. And yet they still keep on with the fanboi bullshit?


I wouldn't give a flying fuck.
Fixed to represent me, all credits goes to Steevo
Maybe if i felt like it i would try to help those people, like in a humanitarian way. Its not that i am a pacifist, i really do see myself killing someone someday, but not for something like this
Also kidding about the killing part, though crippling is a possibility

Also this is what w1zz said: “people are just stupid.” -W1zzard
So true, that comes from someone that wouldn't be worried about lame peoples criticism

So the Trolls won....

Its amazing how context sensitive google search is sometimes

An Open Letter to W1zzard

After ~500+ comments, I'm fairly certain that I can't say anything that hasn't been said, or even that W1zzard will be able to read it . . . And there's no way in hell that's going to stop me from voicing my support anyways!

Like most others, I was drawn to TPU by W1zzard's excellent reviews (which I've never had a problem with, because they're simply the best). More importantly, though (to me), is the community that he and his staff created here in the forums. Yes, I disappeared for a while for personal reasons -- But, there's obviously something special about this community that brought me back. Some people might not ever notice W1z aside from his reviews and software . . . but TPU is his site, these are it's forums, and neither would be what they are now without him.


W1zzard,

I don't know you personally, and I've never reviewed anything, ran a site, ran forums or written any software. I've still experienced destructive criticism and I've seen how ungrateful, disrespectful, and outright rude people on the internet can be. To be on the receiving end of it is something I wouldn't wish upon my worst enemy (that might be a lie), and especially not for anything as great as the things you've done are.

Regardless of what those people say or do, there's still plenty of people all over the world who love what you do. What matters most, though, is your own happiness. If you're not happy doing this anymore, then -- even though we'd all prefer you stay -- it's not what you should be focusing on anymore . . . But if you still enjoy what you do and it's just all the dingle-berries gettin' to ya, then use the toilet-paper (read: banhammer) and keep doing what makes you happy!


TL;DR: We all love you and you're getting into heaven either way, so do what you feel is right. :toast:

With infinite support,

[fancy signature]

PS: While it has been a faithful companion, your forum cannot accompany you through the rest of the test. If it could talk - and the Enrichment Center takes this opportunity to remind you that it cannot - it would tell you to go on without it because it would rather die in a fire than become a burden to you.

Good luck and thanks for the great reviews. Easily the best graphs and comparisons on the web.
