PCLinuxOS Moderation

Filed under
PCLOS
Web

It seems that PClinuxOS is getting slammed for the moderation by one or more mods. I feel that I need to put forth a view on this topic.

The forums for the most part are friendly and helpful. I must admit the feeling on the forum was quite different when there were only 2800 of us using it but it has grown significantly in the past few years and the feel of the forum has changed.

It is not only the feeling that has changed but so have the main people that use to be on the forum. It is the people that make the forum and some of the more helpful ones have left.

The moderation on the forum is fair, if you stay within the rules put out by the forum there will be no moderation done on you as a poster. In saying that, when some do step over the rules and break them, most of the mods are very polite and professional.

In saying that, PCLinuxOS Forums, like others have moderators that don’t seem to notice that their comments can be abrasive and that the user of the forum is also the ones being asked to donate to the cause.

Article

Hmmmm...

"The authors have deleted this blog. The content is no longer available."

re: Article

No great loss.

Just another whine-fest about pissy users or pissy moderators or some other thin skinned BS (the article waffled so much - it was hard to tell what the exact point was). At least if you're going to bitch about something - man up and name names.

It's hard to understand (from the Scientist/Engineer POV) how a lot of these so called "tech" forums turn into one big circular back patting conventions - where if the "warm-n-fuzzy" meter isn't turned to "9" or better - you can expect a phone call from one of the regular members (or worse yet, their mom!).

Linux Kernel 4.15 Reached End of Life, Users Urged to Move to Linux 4.16 Now

After a very busy cycle due to the Meltdown and Spectre security vulnerabilities, which were publicly disclosed earlier this year and later discovered to put billions of devices using modern processors at risk of attacks, the Linux 4.15 kernel series was released at the of January heavily redesign against two critical hardware bugs. Now, nearly three months and only eighteen maintenance updates later, the Linux 4.15 kernel series reached end of life and it will no longer receive support. As such, all those using a kernel from the Linux 4.15 branch on their GNU/Linux distributions are urged to upgrade to the latest Linux 4.16 kernel series as soon as possible. Read more

This Chart Shows How The Radeon RX 580 vs. GeForce GTX 1060 Now Compete Under Linux

It was just last year that open-source RadeonSI/RADV developers were trying to get the Radeon RX 580 "Polaris" GPU to be competitive with the GeForce GTX 1060 as it is under Windows given each GPU's capabilities. We've seen the RX 580 and GTX 1060 dancing under Linux the past few months and yesterday's 20-way GPU comparison with Rise of the Tomb Raider was quite significant -- perhaps most surprising being how well the RX 580 performed. Heck, just one or two years ago it was an accomplishment seeing any official Radeon driver support at-launch for new Linux game releases. So here are some extensive tests looking closer at the GTX 1060 vs. RX 580 battle in this latest Vulkan-powered Linux game port. Read more
