Is it only me or there is no link to the forums from amd.com?
Where is it if there is one?

They have been working on this forum since August (skinning and customizations) so I think they'll add one as they go on.

I'm sure it's somewhere at the main site ... but I'm sure it should be a bit more visible

Dunno how he found this one .. probably through a link provided by someone else ... and it goes on

That's affirmative .. but then again, the difference in number of posts & users is measured in the ten thousands (posts) and hundred thousands (members)

Have you all seen the monster that is powering this place?

http://forums.amd.com/sponsors/' ">http://forums.amd.com/sponsors/

That's probably why this place is a wee bit faster than any other forum.

Yeah, and the server the FM uses for the forums is a very lowsy one. If only they'd host the forum themselves too, like they do to their main site.

A forum doesn't really need a strong server to run on.

Yes it does if it has alot of traffic.

From the looks of this place, I think the dual Opterons are justified. Just look at the first day of operations. It will definitely get busier.

Perhaps its good the only way ppl are finding the forums right now are from other computer related sites. That way the forums wont get flooded with n00bs talkin about CS or something, but ppl actually talkin about computers

longer actually...

here's the brief history:

The TSC actually set up a test board at Flickerdown.com about 4 months ago to demo the basics of what a forum would do (it was phpBB-based). This board has been tested quite thoroughly over the past month. :-)

glad ya'll like it...

cheers,

dave

Yah I heard at the beggining they saig they didn' allow Pics because it could contain codes like PHP that could be harmful.

Yeah, it kind of does. I'm not familiar with Invision Power Board... but im assuming its a sql backend. With 100 active users, all of them making a steady stream of sql queries... it can bog the heck out of a server. And this is only the first day!

MySQL backend...PHP based...

you could theoretically allow scripts to run by using the IMG tags...that's why we don't use 'em.
