  1. Are you referring to response time? If so, I would say it does matter, but is wayyy overhyped. Do not fret over the difference between a display with a 5ms response time, and a display with a 1ms response time. Most modern displays are fine. If you aren't bothered by your current display, it isn't worth upgrading because you think a faster response will provide a superior experience - it probably won't. Also, manufacturers often stretch the truth when it comes to response times, so a 1ms display is often slower in reality.
  2. I don't see it as redundant, I see it as efficient. Having a single place for LTT social media, videos, and important updates (all under one account) is appealing to me.
  3. I'm not going to pretend as if they aren't there: they most certainly are. However, it's not like creating a subreddit for a specific community will cause some mass influx of angry redditors to the forums.
  4. I don't think reddit has any larger percentage of idiots/trolls than the rest of the internet; it's just a larger community, so you notice them more.
  5. For a single place to have all of the updates. Unless a twitter feed is incorporated into the forum. I don't intent any real forum-like discussion to take place there - it's more of an integration thing.
  6. I don't know if any of you have seen /r/linustechtips, but it is entirely dead. So, I made reddit.com/r/Linus_Tech_Tips yesterday and threw a little bit of CSS on it (no clue what I'm doing, it's a WIP). At the very least his videos will be posted there by a bot, and I will post some of his updates from twitter/instagram (for people who don't have twitter/instagram accounts), along with other various things (WAN Show reminders, important forum topics, etc.). Hope you guys like it!
  7. I'm for it. I watch your channel now for analysis and a little bit of personality (the end of this last week's WAN Show reminded me of how much I missed the oldschool after parties with retro games and terrible jokes). If you have a daily news show, that would increase my engagement in your content. I think you have a really unique perspective on where products fit into the market, the future of new technologies, and I really respect your opinion (I would not have appreciated G-sync for what it is without your testimony). Couple that with gamer Luke, and you have a very good show. I don't watch your unboxings for stat sheets, I watch them for the overclocked benchmarks at the end, the "So, where does this fit in?", and the Linus-in-a-bathtub. If you can incorporate that into your new set of content, and give more in-depth reviews, I see nothing lost. At the end of the day, people hate change, so you will get flak for this, but I think it's a good long term way to improve the channel. I have a lot more reasons for advocating this change, but you get the idea.
  8. Linus, you are clearly post farming, which is against the CoC. Someone ban this clown.
