      User Account Promotion Rules - READ BEFORE POSTING!   12/14/15

      As part of the move to our new platform, we did away with the 5 post moderation queue (where new members posts were put in an approval queue) and now all new member posts are not prescreened and immediately visible when posted. However, to maintain a steady stream of quality content on these forums, we have added user account promotion requirements which work a little differently than before.   Upon registering for this website, your account is categorized as "Pre-Promotion" and you can see that status below your avatars. Once you have participated in the community sufficiently over the course of a week , your account will become flagged for review and at that time the T|I moderation team will review your post history over the course of a week and promote you accordingly--as long as you didn't break any forum rules or make spam posts, you are 99.9% certain to get promoted. At that point, as a Promoted User, your account will have full privileges to download anything you like and have enhanced account features enabled such as increased PM quota, increased per post upload quota etc.   If you cannot wait for this promotion period, then we encourage you to subscribe for T|I Elite Membership as it will provide you with an immediate account promotion and you can then download what you wish. Attempting to circumvent these rules set forth are grounds for infraction and/or termination of your account privileges as it is a violation of our terms of service that you agreed to when joining Tech|Inferno forums.    In summary: New user account promotion system that views your level of quality activity on these forums over a span of 1 week with a minimum of 5 QUALITY posts.  Once you have sufficient activity over this week, your account is flagged for moderator review. At that time you will get promoted as long as you had quality posts and didn't violate forum rules (e.g. spam posts, one liners, file begging, complaining etc.). Apart from a few odd members that break the aforementioned rules, almost everyone is guaranteed a promotion. If you do not wish to wait for this promotion queue, you can simply opt for T|I Elite Membership to skip ahead and get your account promoted as long as the membership lasts.  Attempting to circumvent the aforementioned rules may result in an infraction and/or ban. Please review our terms of service.   We feel this is the best compromise we could come up with to maintain our standards of quality for this website and to ensure our limited resources are used optimally.    Thanks, T|I Team

      All Promoted & T|I Elite Can Submit Articles   12/26/15

      Starting today (12/27/15), all promoted and T|I Elite members will now be able to submit their own articles to the front page for review. This will give you a chance to write about something and have it exposed to thousands of readers that visit Tech|Inferno daily. Additionally, once you do contribute an article and it is approved by an administrator, your usergroup will be moved to "Contributor" status which brings additional privileges similar to T|I Elite. Those additional privileges are still in the works and when finalized, will be posted in this thread.   First and foremost, read our terms of service: https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/ti-tos/tos/   Some rules in addition to the TOS to note: All articles, posts, comments, reviews etc. must comply with our terms of service.  If you are affiliated with any company, agency, service or commercial product, you are forbidden from using this privilege. You must contact Tech|Inferno for advertising fees and space. Anyone violating this policy will have their accounts terminated. You are not allowed to copy/paste articles or works from other sources and must respect copyrights. Doing so will result in your suspension from these forums. Anything you reference in your post must be given full credit either in the body of the article or at the end in terms of sources referenced with a hyperlink to that source. Refrain from the use of BB code tables, you can use one or two if you must but don't go crazy with those. A better alternative is to construct a table in an external program and export it as a JPEG. Do not go around spamming links to your articles on other forums. Sharing it on twitter or FB is fine, but don't hop on another tech forum and start spamming it. If we receive complaints from other administrators of you doing this, we'll revoke your right to post. Articles must be relevant to technology (e.g. PC games, software, networking, computers, notebooks, graphics cards etc). Anything illegal or related to gambling is forbidden. Be professional, check your grammar and spelling before submitting an article.  If you spam a bunch of garbage articles for review and we feel you're doing this on purpose, we will suspend your posting privileges.    How to submit an article video:   It is expected that you watch the above video to learn how to submit an article. All submitted articles must contain the following or they will be rejected:   Title Meta tags (labeled as "Tags" under the Title box) Content (obviously): Must be at least 150 words/2000 characters in length.  Image - Choose Single File: This is the thumbnail image that viewers will see on the CMS index. Try to keep image size under 500px x 500px and size <200 KB.  Appropriate topic selection that fits your article - we keep these limited on purpose. Only choose topics that fall under Front Page News.    In topic selection, do not choose 'Promoted Posts' as that is a category only for administrator and moderator use to promote posts from the forum to the front page. If you do choose it, your article may be rejected from the queue.    Reward  If an article you write receives over 1000 unique views, we may gift you with a $20 amazon gift card/certificate. This gift is subject to our terms and conditions. Any fraudulent views will be discarded and no reward given.   Lastly, follow this topic if you plan to be a regular contributor as we will continue to update this space.

      Tech|Inferno TeamSpeak - Come Join Us!   12/28/15

      Tech|Inferno is hosting a TeamSpeak channel for those of you that wish to hang out with one another or play as a squad in games. Additionally, if you are a T|I Elite member, it is where you can find me (Brian) there often and can use this as an avenue of contact although you must always first attempt to create a support ticket before seeking assistance on TeamSpeak.   If you are not a T|I Elite member, please do not come on TeamSpeak seeking assistance as account and forum issues via TeamSpeak are strictly for T|I Elite members. Non-Elite members will need to either create a thread in the feedback forum or reply to the existing feedback thread.   TeamSpeak Server: ts3.techinferno.com   Port: 9987 (you shouldn't need this but just in case)   Currently the server is set to host a maximum of around 30 people but if it gets more traffic, we can always purchase a license and increase that total.    Please do not poke any admins unless you are a T|I Elite member in need of assistance.   Thanks.
