kjBerserker's Completed Build: Spectral Enthusiasm

philip staff 10 Builds 1 point 1 day ago

Like I said, if you'd like to recommend alternate part selections, do it in the forums where people are evaluating what to buy. Completed builds aren't the proper venue when people have already purchased parts.

Enough with the "tier" feedback on PSUs. Also, keep your feedback polite and constructive. If you'd like to recommend alternate part selections, the "Part List Opinions Wanted" would be a more effective venue.

Don't cite tier lists. Cite reviews instead.

Forum Topic ""Community" Parts"

philip staff 10 Builds 1 point 1 day ago

Unfortunately that's not something we can support right now. For compatibility support parts have to entered a very particular way - and that's something I'm only comfortable having staff (that are domain experts) doing. If you factor out compatibility support, then you can add custom parts in the part list already.

Forum Topic "In 2017, will any new features be added to the website?"

philip staff 10 Builds 2 points 2 days ago

In 2017, will any new features be added to the website?

Absolutely.

If so, what are a few of the new features that will be added?

Can't say specifically, but it does involve a bunch of headphone jacks, SSDs, power supplies, and motherboards.

If not so, when will new features be added?

There will be a steady release of things throughout the year.

Also, will there ever be some sort of voting or liking process for all the comments to all the questions in all the forums? So that maybe the PCPP community could vote or like every single comment until it is awarded something like best answer or most liked?

I won't rule it out in the future, but it doesn't seem likely right now.

Blog Post "MSI Pick Your Dream Holiday PC Giveaway"

philip staff 10 Builds 2 points 12 days ago

We had a bit over 10,000 entries. As for valid entries that pass vetting, we don't know exactly. Digging into an entry to make sure everything is ok takes a good bit of time, so we only do that on the winning entries. I want to make sure that if we're saying an entry doesn't pass, we're absolutely sure that's the case - it's not something we take lightly. (And of course, whether you only vet the winners picked or vet all and then pick doesn't matter - it doesn't change the odds for valid entries.)

Blog Post "MSI Pick Your Dream Holiday PC Giveaway"

philip staff 10 Builds 2 points 12 days ago

I don't want to say exactly why they failed vetting for a couple reasons: possibly identifying non-winning entries and/or accounts, and possibly identifying the different ways we protect against entry fraud.

We're not able to store Amazon prices longer than 24 hours per their API terms, so that rules out any price history from them. Just the way it goes unfortunately. Of the winning entries selected though, none were affected by that.

If you're sharing a part list among people to enter, that's fine. As long as it is one entry per person you're fine.

I vetted the winning entries. Two of three initial winners did not pass vetting. Two more follow-up winners to replace those also did not pass vetting. Hence the delay where one user found out earlier than the others. The final three all came from separate IPs, separate emails, separate countries, none of which were in the US. I've had communication with all of them.

Roughly 55% of entries were in the US. Roughly 75% of the entries had pcpartpicker accounts.

For what it's worth, we had 12 entries coming from the IP address where you submitted your entry. (Though that in and of itself isn't a direct indicator of cheating, particular in the case of a NAT, etc. Other factors are needed.) Though of the 12 entries from your IP, yours was the only one with an account on this site. Day after Christmas was a popular day for those - with seven total coming in. They started at (no timezone info) 10:54, then 11:21, then 11:43, then 12:27. A break for a while, then 18:33, 19:05, 22:08.

Of the 12 part lists from your IP, all were dual GPU. All but one were SSD + HDD. All contained a headset. Even though the parts were different in all of them, the exact composition of parts was strikingly similar. Just saying, you know? :)

This stops now. Pick an account you'd like to keep, and stop trying to provoke others. EDIT: after reviewing your accounts more, I see you've already be warned twice. We've had enough.

Hang tight everyone - two more emails to go out. MSI will send them out soon - be patient though because the people sending it out are at CES (and likely quite busy today).

Forum Topic "In refereance to "Build Guides being....bad?""

philip staff 10 Builds 2 points 18 days ago

A more accurate statement from me would be that I have no plans at all to add volunteer community moderators. I think it's important for a consistency, accountability, and professionalism standpoint for our moderators to be staff (paid) positions only.

Forum Topic "In refereance to "Build Guides being....bad?""

philip staff 10 Builds 3 points 19 days ago

The major hurdle I see to this is the moderating part.

It really is. I'm still searching for a solution that doesn't require moderation or meta-moderation and can cut through the low-effort guides, trolling, anti-guides, etc. If we were to bring community guide indexes back in a form that requires moderation in any form whatsoever, we'd have to hire another staff member to do it. That's unfortunately not an option right now. And we don't want to bring in volunteer community moderators at this time.

Typical users of the site, particularly new users, shouldn't have to wade through 10 guides to get to a good one. Novice users might not know a good one from a bad one either.

We have some very, very large projects in the works right now. Perhaps when those have hit completion we can revisit community guide indexes and see if there is a viable way to bring them back - in a way that has a good signal-to-noise ratio.

Just FYI, key resellers are not allowed on this site. For the reseller you mentioned the feedback isn't always quite so rosy (i.e. https://www.reddit.com/r/pcmasterrace/wiki/keyresellers) - in addition to the keys having questionable legality.

Your part list still references and provides a link to a key reseller.

Forum Topic "Build Deleted?"

philip staff 10 Builds 2 points 21 days ago

Your operating system references a key reseller. That's not permitted, which is likely why the build was blocked.
