there's been a bit of discussion on the folding board, and I think it's time for a mining community board pinned in the folding, boinc and mining sub like the boinc and folding boards are. mining is getting more popular and it would be really nice to have a board for it specifically, especially as not everything requires a topic made, and a status update isn't always the right thing to use either. I don't see a reason why not to. it could also be a good time to clean up the pins there, as I think some of them could be merged together

Either @piratemonkey or quote me when responding to me. I won't see otherwise

Put a reaction on my post if I helped

I agree this would be cool to see mining get it's own category, there has been lots of mining related content on the forum lately and it would make sense for it be removed from boinc and F@H.

Not the right time, imo

 

It'll just be a cesspool of poopoo tossing

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

I'm tad confused on what you want more. Dedicated pinned thread for general discussion about mining? Or subforum separation? The latter would mean that amount of new and active threads for both sides is notable.

If so.

 

Is there a thread already? Easiest way for us to pin anything is that there's already a thread which is active with buzz. Also if you talk about merging or removing existing pins, please do include reasons and suggestions of those too.

I was tired when I made the post lol. but a pinned thread, would be new as I haven't seen an active thread with that as the topic. as for pins, I just threw it in cuz 2am me thought I should. it's not important for now. 

I can make a thread and do all that jazz if needed to sort of get the ball rolling I guess.

There's already 10 threads pinned to that forum, really not looking to add more.

Perhaps these two could be merged?
They're VERY similar:

And/or this one could be unlocked and turned into the "Mining community board"?

Merging those two would put the Tips, Tricks and FAQ post on page 60 of the install guide thread.

perhaps make a sort of folding/boinc master thread for information, combining all existing threads in one post, or several depending. that way it's only a couple of pins

Pinned topics for Boinc and F@H are more relevant as they pertain to information for those who wish to participate on the LTT Folding and BOINC teams.

As far as I know the same thing does not exist for Mining, there are no teams for Mining and I highly doubt the community is going to mine pool to a single wallet.

It would be handy for some of use noobs to mining to have somewhere to talk to each other here. I'm not evil, I'm not taking hardware from anyone. I just used spares I had around to make some extra money that I could use right now and try to build money for later when I need to replace my car or need medical care.

that's what I'm thinking if mining was separated from boinc and F@H it would be used as a place for beginner miners to get help, various cash out methods, trending coins to mine etc.
