    The Technology sub-forum is free to be used by ANY community member to show off your prowess with build logs, setup showcases or to help keep SMT staff and members up-to-date with the latest in technology news/reviews. Technology means anything to do with electronics/audio/gaming/robotics/spaceships/aliens ETC.

    As with every other section there has to be some rules to keep this area civilised and useable by other members.

    GENERAL RULES
    • DO NOT CALL OTHER USERS FANBOYS/FANGIRLS of different products

    BUILD LOGS/setup showcases

    • To update your log you will edit your original post DO NOT WRITE A REPLY FOR EVERY SMALL UPDATE
    • Include as many pictures as is economical to show us exactly what you have done
    • Expensive =/= better, please be courteous to other members, their budgets and choice of parts

    (some rules stolen from LTT, shhh don’t tell them)
    • Your thread must include some original input to tell the reader why it is relevant to them, and what your personal opinion on the topic is.
    • Your thread must include a link to at least one reputable source. Most of the time, this should be a respected news site.
    • Your thread should also include quotes from the cited source(s). While you shouldn't just copy the entire article, your quote should give the reader a summary of the article in a way that gives the key details, but also leaves room for them to read the full article on the linked website.
    • The title of your thread must be relevant to the topic and should give a reader a good idea of the contents of the thread. Copying the title of the source is permitted but absolutely not required.
    • If your article is about a product or some form of media, images are always appreciated, although they are not required.
