I was thinking of something that would be fun, especially because we have quite a few techies here on MOBAfire.

What about a tech forum? It can have multiple sub forums such as Building, Windows, CPU and Overclocking, GFX, etc. like Tom's Hardware or something.

Quite a few game forums have a feature like this like teamliquid.net.

We can even have a new title such as Tech Guru or something (Searz *cough*) that will constantly provide reputable answers to people in the forum.

I also think that it will attract a new body of people to the site (more traffic = more $ for Matt and team! :D)

So? Thoughts?

I would like to see this.

I'm not geeky enough for Tech so I will be glad to ask questions in the Tech forums (if it ever gets created).

And it will be nice for people to show-off their builds in that forums and that gets sticky'd. I love reading/checking out people's builds (as I am building a desktop right now and it is the first time I will assemble it myself, it would be nice for me to ask Mobafire members, since this is the only forums I check at all, on tips/advices on how to set it up).

Good suggestion.

It would be too much of a variation to MobaFire's purpose. This is a LoL site about...LoL. While we can go into other topics (as already seen with the signatures and art), they have to be relating back to LoL. Besides, just search if you want to find forums such as that.

Of course, don't take this like I came down a mountain with ten sentences doodled down on a stone slab and started preaching. No, Matt could say yes to this for all I know; I just doubt it.

go to off-topic for that. Though it holds mostly gibberish posts, there are posts like this that do get answered.

I have done that in the past, as well as many others, and it just doesn't fit...this would provide a whole area to ask questions like those and get prompt answers from knowledgeable people.

Great idea though!

I'd be all for it if I got a title :D
"I saw [Twilight: Eclipse] in theaters with a girl I was dating at the time. I spent more time staring at my toes and wiggling them than I did watching this abomination. When Edward proposed to Blank Face, I finally looked up with a revelation.
I blurted out loud, in a dead silent theater full of teenage girls on opening night "Wait a minute, Edward has no blood flow. How does he get an erection?" I heard several men laughing, and had several girls turn and stare at me.

I did not get laid that night." - Berengier817

I think having 4 subforums for it is quite overkill though. I think it should just be 1 subforum.

Problem is it doesn't really fit anywhere with the current forum headings (LoL, Create and Share, ETC).

I think a forum like "Technical Support" would be nice. There ppl could ask questions about computer problems as well as if computer parts are a good bargain etc. Just not sure where it would go... Maybe in Create and Share could work if it was more like "Tech Talk" or something.
Thanks to GrandMasterD for my sig!

Maybe, I was thinking it's own section though, maybe "Tech Talk", and in it maybe some more general forums like tech support and computer building and resources or something like that ;o
