Also, not the biggest fan of splitting system info and help seeking posts.

Maybe and additional check box like this for people posting something non-hardware related? The question is: Will people remember to use it?

Why? That takes too much time. Have it in your sig flash your epenis around! :)

It has nothing to do with ePeen, but with troubleshooting.

I'm sure my ePeen would look so huge with my 6-year old Dell XPS410 with my 5-year old AMD Radeon HD3850 in my sig...WOOOOO

By the way guys, This would eliminate the OS and Phone option to your left under the profile picture. Having that there would just be redundant.

I think it would be an awesome addition. Am all for it.

Don't be ridiculous. It isn't about showing off your 'epenis'. It's about making it easier for people to help each other. And to let others know what your specs are (which can come in handy for PC gaming threads). Assuming this feature is implemented, you wouldn't see it if you have signatures disabled. Ever hear the saying "out of sight, out of mind"?

Just a thought how about having a link/icon in the user info section of the post that makes a pop out like we do for viewing the replies of a thread you know to see how many and by who?

Also since you'll have the specs stored on the site you could also add a check box in the thread creation page that automatically puts the specs in the thread to save time typing or copy pasting them in.

I said the same thing once, it was turned upside down by our beloved Steven

Here was the idea. Its a drop down menu.

^ We could do that too.

@ Timan-- Is this possible for you to do? Under Avatar > Edit profile you could have a section called "My Specs" where the user fills out the fields. It also appears on the user page (for someone viewing a profile) and in the side bar. The could also be a second drop down called "My Devices" that list your phone, tablet, etc. I really don't care where it's integrated, as long as it's integrated.

Again guys, if it's not embedded into the post (which can be made more comfy, too... Have a checkbox for auto-filling that in) Google's gonna hate this if you know what I mean.

I'm not for this AT ALL in the way most around here deem it to be nice looking (granted) and sweet.

This is also a problem for gathering new users, as forums often curate users by Googlers having found a solution there.

If you don't find solutions, you don't find the place.

If you want to display your specs, put it in your sig as I do

I also have sigs turned off but maybe would be a good option to have ignore prefs on sigs the same way they are for members posts, where you can click the link to see the post if you wish, implement that for people ignoring sigs and problem solved

There's no reason to add this as signature option. My suggestion: Add it as section to the user profile, with a link to it under the member badge (as opt-in feature).

90% of this site has nothing to do with your PC hardware, so why put it all over the place?

Also, how is it getting this info? Does it need a plugin installed to read it? In which case, no.

I hope you intend to make it opt in.

If this feature was implemented, then the user will have to fill out the information (regardless of where it shows up).

I hope you intend to make it opt in.

Nothing has been decided yet but it's up to the admins and developers. I'm sure it would be an opt-in feature just like the operating system or location information in your profile.
