Topic Template Feedback

I have added a template when creating new topics in New Builds and Planning, so the editor will be prefilled with

Quote

Budget (including currency):

Country:

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for:

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc):

The template can be deleted from the editor, it's just there to serve as a guide to encourage people to post the right things.

 

If you have suggestions for changes to the template, or feedback about whether it is helping, please post them here.

Knowing the refresh rate/resolution OP intends to use is also great to know (for gaming).

Good point. I've added it to the "other" hint for now, but if people ignore that then I can maybe add it as a top level question.

Great!

Thanks for adding this, it will make giving advice for new PC's much easier! I will definitely be keeping in mind this section some more.

I wasn't really a fan of the old template (had too many questions IMO) and of course not having any details wasn't great either.

 

Perhaps something like this could be considered for the Tech News section too (if it wasn't considered already, that is :P)

I'm thinking about Tech News, but I am a bit more cautious about it because most of the posts there are by regular posters who know the rules already, and I don't want to discourage them from using their own template.

This is really good, nice idea, I saw one person post with it already, and immediately everyone knew what they had, what they wanted to do and how much they had to spend and where they were spending it.

Wow, great! Now I don't have to say "Jeez, bud, you need to tell me your budget, where you live, what you want to use it for and any preferences before I can give you any sort of recommendation" for every 'My first gaming PC' post. Thanks!
