Almost 1 year since the last HWA Column was posted:
http://www.hardwareanalysis.com/content/columns/

Almost 2 years since the last HWA Review:
http://www.hardwareanalysis.com/content/reviews/

More than 4 years since the last HWA Editorial:
http://www.hardwareanalysis.com/content/editorials/


I came up with this graph showing how article content has slowed down:

What happened in 2005 that dropped HWA off the cliff? :~

Guilty as charged.. Sander's been kind of yawning at PC industry for a while which results in lack of new articles. I will nudge him a bit to perhaps offer some [more periodic] opinion on current events.

Personally, I am still in the process of planning some major changes to the way site operates - the goal is to focus on content provided by you guys, while rewarding you for doing it. But putting this all together takes quite a bit of time which is in limited supply.

Oh, and please no sexual chat. It may not be noticeable, but we are watching. Just last night I got awoken at 4:30am to deal with spam alerts - thanks J.A. for reporting, and F.U. spammers.

McFly - I think it was really after the ATI incident that things started going sour with HWA and reviews.

This place is really only a chat forum now.

Pirate,

Get rid of tha flag...you....you....PIRATE. Go back to the coasts of AFRICA.

I think the guys on here would be really quite good at reviews...I will give my 5970 to dubs for an hour to review....LMAO. And by actually telling us you are watching means you ARE NOT watching...:P

Excellent graph, McFly. You have prove yourself worthy of advancement in the corporate ladder. Pretty soon you'll be a Senior Business Analyst, sitting in long and exciting management meetings: analyzing pie charts, bar graphs, trending graphs, bell curves, lean six sigma, etc; having lengthy discussion on B.S. (Business Strategies) and Risks Assessment with the important executive figures in the corporation. Much more exciting than your boring programming work, isn't it? ;)

Yeah man I agree on your point, McFly. HWA has gone down hill a lot, even member participation is decreasing. Only a few die hard members, like us, are still frequent here. But we are in a losing battle if participation continues to go down in the near future. Pretty soon, there will be more one timer members for computer Q&As, than frequent members.

Yep, this site is going dead. However, so is PC interest in general. Programs are easier to use, and there isn't really a whole lot to learn, as long as you come from a PC background. If you aren't, then that's another story.

I could be completely wrong, but that's how I feel about myself.

It would be nice to have product reviews, general news pages, etc. It would help the site stand out a lot more, compared to just making threads on it. The only issue is permissions/power for all users.


[edit]

I just noticed Vit posted and it gave me an "idea" that has been posted before. Someone write an article and forward it to an admin. Discuss and evaluate it, then post as news. Pretty simple, really. It's just if the admins want to spend that much time doing this, if it turns into a daily news feed.

This was actually touted a couple of years ago but never really materialised.

Dr. Peaceful
Excellent graph, McFly.

Hehe, thanks. Actually, I mostly made the graph as an exercise on figuring out OpenOffice.org and the GIMP. OpenOffice.org is really very impressive, I actually like it more than Office 2007 and the Office 2010 beta I used. The GIMP though ... is going to take serious getting used to. I wish Adobe would release Photoshop for Linux. :( I'll probably end up running Photoshop in VMware (or an older version with Wine).

Yeah Guys, keep it seemly. There ARE girls lurking here too!
You would never want to offend our sensibilities now would you???:X
How about someone (Sander? Vitality) doing a piece on solid state drives.

Only read the manual as a last resort.

I'll admit responsibility for not promoting this more - but there was only one article submitted/published by Bobby.

The offer is still standing though.
