We have a very good forum with great people that will help out at any time.
With the flood of new members why not contribute to the forum in a positive way.
A couple of ways is joining the Crunching or Folding teams it would give the opportunity to help every person on the planet.

I've done FaH since they released it on the PS3, but haven't really done much with the new computer.  Once I secure a 3080, I'll see what I can do about putting a hurt on my 2060.

yes, lots.    and anyone new needs to remember that established members, some that have been here a very long time, will help you out.   But if you come into the forums with attitude and ruffle feathers, you won't get any help from some of the most educated people on the subject.  
 
take time to read the rules, learn how the forum buttons work and have a great time.

I know some people will join and just show up to complain about stock problems, and how horrible things are, but EVGA is don't a lot better of a job than anyone else in terms of working on how to help with the crashing problem and comunicating about what's being done. Sure some places have beefer servers, far beyond anything EVGA can have running their stores, but I'd be hard pressed to think of a group talking about what the are doing to address it more.

As I've stated in a few other posts, I am incredibly surprised, yet delighted, at the transparency and willingness to to actually interact with the community, that EVGA has shown since the launches of the RTX 3000 series.  From manually reviewing orders to restock bot purchased stock, to attempting to streamline their checkout to limit crashing.  They seem like a company that actually cares about keeping their good name intact by taking care of the their customers.  There may be limited stock, but that isn't their fault either.  With the low adoption of the previous generation, no one could have imagined the overwhelming demand of actual consumers, and sheer volume of automated bots attempting scalp stock for a quick buck.  I haven't even purchased anything from EVGA, but I already feel like they are trying to take care of me, where every other company has just tried to hide their heads in the sand.

And that's why I've install the FAH control, and registered under team 111065....  Even with my less than stellar 2060, and ryzen 3700x, at least I can help give back to a group that already seems to be trying to give something to me.

I understand the frustration of trying to find a 30 series card since they are in short supply everywhere and sites are crashing when they do come into stock. It's really to be expected to be upset but hopefully people can be treated with respect and kindness so the new members feel welcome. Hopefully the new members stick around and realize that this is an amazing community of people who love gaming and technology.

New poster here. I'm curious about the Folding program. It looks like the EVGA Folding tutorial links to an older build of the Folding@home app. I think this is page to download the current version: https://foldingathome.org/#downloads
 
What should be downloaded, the one mentioned here: https://www.evga.com/folding/guides.asp or the one from foldingathome.org?
 
Thanks!

Should limit new fourm members limits on posting.  one post per day to start,  ordering from eVGA, one GPU order per IP_address/debit/creditcard/paypal  per 30-60 days  for new gen launches...

Stellar is in the eye of the beholder. I’m proud of my 2060 as my best folding card and impressed by it’s folding capabilities. 11 year folder, 9 with 111065.

I come around the forums before, during, or after buying a product and then disappear into the ether with that product. Only time I really popped back was when my 1080 FTW went and decided to die right after getting it.. I'm hoping EVGA will sell my a 3090 FTW3 Ultra so I can once again disappear from the forums until 2025 or so when looking to replace it, or if/when I need other products sooner. 
 
Sadly they keep saying "not today" when I try and stuff money into their pockets.

Many new members join the site seeking help with an issue with their rig. I doubt they would stick around if they had to wait a day to respond with the second bit of information.
 
I do think the whole 100 posts to elite status should be rethunk! It is useless spam that ruins many threads. It either needs to be abolished or there needs to be more clarification that the posts must be helpful or beneficial to the thread in some way. As that would be difficult and very time consuming for the mods I would say to switch the elite requirements to 3-5 blue ribbons. (or at the bare minimum, 1)
It should be given automatically to those that have been a forum member after a year or two and to those that have purchased and registered evga products.
 
1000 new members getting to 100 senseless posts makes for 100k posts, its no wonder why the forums feel so bogged down.

Yes is the Halloween special event 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤔

Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
 The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. When you abuse it, it reverses on you and it hurts you.The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

Why not do something good and contribute to the forum in a positive way.

If I had the ability to buy 100 people 3080s I would. So instead I will try to share with them my sense of humor. That's pretty much all I got and even that isnt anything to brag about.
