I've tried being a member at other forums that are strictly hardware or strictly gaming. it's just not the same. It's all so serious. Least here I can kick back in the open forum and see what everyone else is up to in their lives.

Also a lot of people dismiss the linux forums. A lot of nvidia related discussion in there. Probably the premier source of Linux/Nvidia information on the net.
QFT

I first came here with with a 'nvldmkm stop responding' (or w/e it is) issue. Once i read the MASSIVE thread on the issue i realised there were a lot of people here that share the same interests as me. My favorite is the gaming forum where i have posted numerous posts there and tried to blend in with the community, now i visit this site everyday. There are some great guys here and with every forum community there are a couple of A holes too.

On topic: I find NvNews to be upto date with everything hardware related and more, and as been said in another post 'atm things on the hardware side are a little slow'. Once X58 mobo's and Nehalem is closer im sure the hardware thread will pick up a lot more.

For what its worth though MrSavoy, it sounds like you're just viewing the forums by clicking the "new posts" button, which is why you're getting all politics.

If you view the individual forums and stay out of the PF you will see no politics. We strictly regulate all political discussion to the political forum. If you want to talk about hardware or gaming, go to the hardware or gaming forums. The Open and Political forums are separated for this very reason.

We're currently less than a month away from the presidential elections and they are extremely controversial... even more than usual. And there haven't been many significant hardware releases recently. Plus, with the economy in the crapper, companies and consumers have less cash to blow on technology.

All of that should be taken into account, as well as what crainger said about this being a very diverse community.
Well put.

I like nVnews, for the same reasons that CaptN posted. Great and mature posters that aren't afraid to have fun. I like that nVnews isn't uber serious like XtremeSystems or XbitLabs, where even a bit of off-topic alerts the nazi mods. Heh, nVnews is the only forum I've bothered to stick around with and try my best to keep the community updated with all the latest happenings in gaming realm.

Hopefully this post doesn't sound too retarded.

All good, I do appreciate all the different views/comments on the subject. As you can see from my join date I have been coming here for years even though I don't post a lot. Actually I have been coming here for probably a couple of years before my join date.

Bottom line, I like these forums. I guess I'll just lay off the new posts button.

I've first visited this site back in 2004 like you. I didn't post regularly until late 2007/early 2008 I believe.

I come in asking questions once in awhile on a few hardware/software related issues, and I always manage to get a reasonable response to help solve my issues.

I'm not a forum person, but this place grew on me. A lot of unique personalities are here, that's for sure, but the different views definitely helps me to understand people from all walks of life (with a common love for PC hardware and gaming).

I can understand your frustration with the number of political news, but if you're a regular, it's nice to hear what the other members think outside of gaming/hardware news. As for that itself, it'll come in time.

In the meantime, enjoy your stay. And BTW, meth is a good guy. He's just straight to the point.
