    Welcome to Kustom PCs forums,

    To sort out some confusion that new members are having this is the General Chat section of the forums where you talk about gerneral things.

    This is not the computer section, this is the general section about anything but computers, The computer section is here. If you are unsure where you post, here's a quick guide;

    For computers or components, Hardware section.

    A program or game, Software section.

    The looks of your computer or desk area, Case / Modding Discussion

    A problem with your computer or software, Trouble shooting section.

    Please read the rules and enjoy the forum.

    Cosmo.

    Edit: As a note you only have to put a title when you are making a thread, the rest of the time it isn't needed.

    Finding Answers

    Most general computer questions such as where can I get Drivers, can be answered easier by searching the forums to see if any other members have had this problem before and find out how they fixed them.

    Another method that works well for error messages or general computer questions is a quick search of http://www.google.co.uk. This can save a lot of time as you do not have to wait for a member to reply with the answer.

    Please speak in proper English rather then text speak or l33ts as you are more likely to get someone to reply

    Noobs and Newbies explained

    With the help of Ctrl Alt Del.

    New members come online as say they are noobs but they are really insulting themslefs since they are newbies. This comic will explain the difference and entertain you at the same time.

    Trading on the forums

    The forums used to have a trading section but that was closed over a year ago. Some new members have tried to sell things so I will explain some of the rules when it comes to selling.

    Trading on these forums is strickly banned and members that try to sell or trade on these forums will be warned and may have the thread closed. Members that come onto the forums just to sell things or get into an argument with the regular members of the forum or adminstrators will be banned.

    Kustom PCs is a computer store and this forum belongs to them. It is against the rules to link to UK competitors sites but you can link to computer stores overseas. If you do link to competitors most members will ask you to remove the links. Instead of linking you should put the maker and modle of the item.

    I hope this has helped to clear things up.
