A while ago I had asked everyone what their opinion on changing up the community here a little. Nothing major, but maybe drum up some other content. No shame to the regular posters, keep doing your thing, I am not trying to shut you out or even hint that I, or really anyone, objects to what you bring here.
I do however have a couple ideas for 'theme days', and any ideas you have are welcome. I am not planning on turning every day into a theme, but was thinking of - Meme Monday, where meme's are not against the rules, as long as they are PC gaming related. I was also thinking of - Free Friday, so as long as its pc related, or gaming related, its ok to post. So if you want to ask about game suggestions, tech support, or something else in the off topic side, barring NSFW, ads, spam...etc, friday is the day.
Now there are communities built around those I have suggested already out there, so if anyone feels like it would pollute our community, or have other objections, please let me know.
If there is no real pushback, tomorrow will be set for our first free friday, lets see how it goes. I'm going to learn myself how to make/get a bot to auto post as reminders when it starts and ends seeing as we don't all live in the same timezone. Since I am in western Canada, and follow mountain time, for the time being, I'll use my timezone as the 'standard' for the theme days. this may change depending on how everyone feels.
patient gamers gang approves this message
English returns as leading language over Chinese
Linux gains +0.52% , now 1.91% vs. OSX 1.53%
Windows 10 -12.05%, Windows 11 +11.51%, but Win10 is still top.
I'll be renaming it next week, hopefully we get some more interest next week, if not, no big deal. Hit and a miss, but I'm trying!
Today is our first Free Friday (title change suggestions welcome)
Rules 0-3 are in effect still, however tech support, build & game suggestions/questions and just about anything else you can think of, pc gaming related, is fair game today. Please save the meme's till monday tho.
If you have a youtube channel, I dont mind you posting a single video, but its gotta be a lets-play or commentary about pc games/gaming. Please dont be posting your homies channel, or some creator you really like...lets keep this local to us for the time being.
You have an idea thats not listed above? Post it and lets find out how the community reacts, but still better follow the basic common sense rules above.
So, the first official Free Friday is now open!
still on October at the time of writing
In few days Valve will update the SHS in order to reflect November. Last time we had surprising Simplified Chinese +13.71% increase, and now sitting on 45.93% with English setting at 2nd position with 26.40%. This happened often in the past and Valve usually fixed it by removing BOT (so English will return 1st language), but now things seems settled so.
