Re: Deskthority blog/articles - thoughts, opinions, contributions?

I reread keyboardjoy's comment on this post, about bringibg new people in, and this got me thinking: I am new. I mean I think my account is couple of years old here at this point, but that's still pretty new. I got here through word of mouth and from r/MK and GeekHack and IRC mentioning Deskthority...

What about voters prizes? Those were the off-the-shelf keyboards before, and very popular!
Working on this. I believe that before a couple of manufacturers were happy to offer prizes in the past.

Re: russian keyboards

I'm on the look out for a Russian keyboard too. I'll let you know if I find anything.

Re: Deskthority Awards discussion

Although I'm fairly new here myself, I think this place is brilliant because of the content the community produces. I have found so much information here that'd warrant me sticking around, aside from the very friendly community. Even just reading some of the reviews of products; one reviewer commen...

Re: Deskthority Awards discussion

We wind up redesigning the awards every year. They're… complex. What do you have in mind for prizes? In the distant past, we had a stash of Wingnuts to award. But those have skyrocketed in resale value—something already prohibited—and brought bad attention to the awards for people to pile in just t...

Deskthority Awards discussion

Dear all, Many of you know that DT used to have its annual DT Awards - if you're unfamiliar check out https://deskthority.net/wiki/Deskthority_Awards#2019 . In 2019, the nominations were free-form without rigid categories. Beforehand, the awards were more concrete including 'best keycaps', 'best mod...

Re: Deskthority blog/articles - thoughts, opinions, contributions?

Giving people another chance to talk down to users is always bad. Uplifting certain """distinguished""" members of the community to a higher status is just a recipe for disaster, and I am fully against a blog of some kind. Maybe a collaboration to write some kind of "Hitchhiker's Guide to Keyboards...

Re: Deskthority blog/articles - thoughts, opinions, contributions?

I'd be a little confused to decide where to put my content ... We've got the forum which is great for sharing a story or a development or a process and collect feedback, interact with edgy vets and keep your progress posted. This has been a very valuable and powerful tool here and considering how s...

Howdy folks, I'm back.

I've pushed a thread regarding a DT blog - please viewtopic.php?f=17&t=25507 and leave your thoughts.

I'm back at my desk and online now. We've sorted out much of the backend now.

Deskthority blog/articles - thoughts, opinions, contributions?

Hello everyone, I appreciate that since the announcement of DT's new ownership I've been a little quiet - the good news is that a lot of work has been done to migrate the backend onto a more scalable and resilient server. I know a fair few of you were concerned about data loss and also the availabil...

Hey everyone,

Sorry for the absence, I am handling the backend at the moment. I’ve been overseas for work all week and will be back in the U.K. on Saturday. Will update you all over the weekend.

Re: Please welcome the new owners of Deskthority

I must say. You had concerns of coming off as an intruder, and, given all prior information, it seemed as if you were. But, you gave a good introduction, if it is sincere, then you will have earned my respect, and I wish this forum and the wiki, and yourself, the best regardless. And, you have Webw...

As for GDPR requests, these are a serious matter. I will take note of each one that has been logged here but I would prefer if anyone has a sincere request to forward it to me privately.
