This thread wants your attention.
Does anyone know when the next thread update is please.
Not sure, but don't hold your breath. You won't survive if you do.
It is enough to make someone go and start a Heaven 4 thread of their own lol.
Funny since that thread you created (if it is you) was created over a year ago...
It was indeed but then I was making a joke in my previous post here.
What is important about these type of threads is they should be updated regularly. If people put the effort into doing the benches and posting the scores, the very least the person running the thread can do is update it promptly.
The other thread in the link often has to be updated several times a day as the people posting there can be quite competitive and the scoreboards need to show the latest results.
Taking on these bench marking results threads is a difficult task. I have been invloved in many since joining TPU in 2009. Those that start the threads take on the responsibility to update as new scores come in. For the most part they do, but after a while (and for many different reasons) they tend to "fall off". As our members are doing this on a voluntary basis, I do not feel ot is okay to pressure them to update the thread. Sometimes it is best for another member to offer to help. If enough time pases and the thread does not get updated, then it is time for a new thread...
What annoys me is when a member gets "pushy", feeling that it is their right for the OP to add their score. There are some old benchmark threads that members still post to and have no expectation that their score will be added to the original list. This is all for fun. If you want to really test your skills then join HWBOT.
I personally am not too worried if any scores I post here get updated or not. What does concern me and the reason I commented in the first place is FX-GMC was politely asking the question above, if this is the only forum he posts on it is a bit unfortunate for him as the thread has not been updated since 18th January.
I run a lot of threads like this one, not just the one I linked. I feel it is my responsibility to keep these threads I have started updated and would feel like I was letting everyone who posted in these threads down if I did not.
As to HWBot I think it is well past its sell by date. They use ancient benches which are very undemanding for the GPUs and more often than not it seems to turn into a competition who can overclock the CPU the highest using LN2. The other thing I don't approve of is the tweaks they use at HWBot that means their results will be thrown out on mainstream benches. Lets face it using Win8 and tampering with the CPU time data is cheating by most peoples standards. Fortunately they use an ancient version of Heaven but again messing with the tessellation is not on.
I, like Kaapstad feel that people who start these threads should know that they are taking on a responsibility to keep them updated. I also run a few FutureMark threads on OcUK and make sure they are updated as soon as possible. I am in no way having a dig at the OP and I understand it is a pain sometimes but if they feel they can no longer commit the time to them, they should let people know, so that someone with more time can keep the scores updated.
Some people seriously push their hardware and it is a massive achievement when they get a very good score with their hardware.
If the OP does not want to update the thread then it should be closed for new replies. The "fun" is lost when you can't easily compare scores.
I specifically quoted @Durvelle27 to get his attention and he continued to ignore the thread. I know he has been online since I saw him post in a For Sale thread I was looking at earlier.
I'm also interested to know how difficult it is to add a few scores every now and then. At the very least @Durvelle27 could just say he is done with the thread (along with an edit to the OP) to avoid disappointing other members who were hoping to join in on the "fun".
I wouldn't like to say as I am new and will leave that to the regulars
I suggest someone makes a new thread. It's been less than two months, so I won't close this one yet, but if you want something done you can't expect others to do it.
Sometimes, circumstances keep this from happening. Real life trumps the internet.
If I were to grab all of the data from this thread and create a new one, would you close this one then?
When real life trumps the internet, I don't use the internet....
EDIT: I must say it's annoying to see all this "If you don't like it start a new thread." It seems ridiculous to have multiple threads that accomplish the same thing.
You wish. I was watching the news and the Oscar ceremony was higher billed than Russian forces entering the Ukraine. Real life takes a back seat more and more these days for public frivolity and indulgence.
But, tbh, if a thread creator is still regularly posting and hasn't declared themself as AWOL, then they really ought to keep that thread up to date, at least weekly. I agree real life will interrupt normal routines when things get hairy but if they still have time to post they may also have time to update.
If anyone else wants to update the thread, give me a PM and I'll make it happen. Nobody is going to force or shun anyone into doing anything.
just not been updated
1.1920x1080, Fullscreen, 8x Anti-Aliasing
4.No integrated GPU enabled, unless it's the only GPU in the build<<<<<<<<<<<<<requirement not fulfilled
5.Tessellation correctly set up on AMD cards and not bypassed in CCC
6.You must also provide correct GPU and CPU clocks
7.Must Be a Screenshot from within Heaven to be valid<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<requirement not fulfilled
well that would be a problem if the op was around atm (and update the charts) if i had more time i would do a new thread or see if i could take charge of that one, but sadly not much free time atm.
