View Full Version : Make "Country of Origin" Mandatory. Please.

05-06-2012, 11:23 PM
I thought at one time it was decided that the country of origin was
mandatory .. as part of the spam control.
I thought this was a fantastic idea now that we are Global as to
know where you are speaking to.
(So many cultures and taboos this also helps others not to unintentionally offend.)
When questions are asked from different parts of the world .. it
becomes hard to answer ... all regions are different in respect to retailers, laws
and RMA/Support help available.

This should, in my humble opinion, be mandatory.
What could possibly be the issue with that ?

I know there has also been talk of Verified User ..
this is also an excellent idea ...
through product registration ... not that you have to have an official
product to become a member ..
This way those that are researching a considered new buy could
ask member opinions ...

Personally I am very pleased with the direction the forum is taking in many
I know that many things are being worked on and are just on the horizon..
I believe these two items would do much to smooth the forum even
further ...

While I am on the subject of feedback...
a minor item ......... the forum signature is limited to 1000 characters. Why?
My current signature is at the limit because it contains three url links (internal forum links)
I had to shorten the title of the last and remove .... these>>> ( ------------- ) but I 'could' put
up a 750W X 400L image...a post only supports 650W....... silly really.... just say'n.....c.

I hear what you are saying Chris. The differences in peoples based on culture is huge, what I can say to you and not offend you is very different to what I can say to someone from a different cultural background.

not sure how it would be encoded but that is for the boffins to work on.

05-07-2012, 12:05 PM
true, true.
There was a 'thing' in the registration .. country of origin was required ..
and it was at least always in the 'about me' ..

or even answering .. say .. an RMA question ...
useless to say PM Mason ... in UK or Romania or Sweden or China ..

and 'heaven' forbid ... you make a joke ... that is harmless in the
US .. (gee, what isnt?) ... but yikes ...
((((Like crossing you leg, ankle to knee in public ..showing the one
next to you the bottom of your foot/shoe ... fights on... why? the
other guy didnt know the rules ...))))

Code boffin Code .....c.

Chris could you email me an image of what you see the forum as please. I think you and I see two very different things mate.

05-07-2012, 02:17 PM
Naaaaaaaa ... We just see them from about 3500 miles away from each other.
I see and mean this:
http://rog.asus.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=8434&d=1336399426<<<<<<< This should be on every members every post .. imho.

<<<<< And as you can see .. HERE (this post) .. it is not.

I see the forum as a Member based support clearing center ...
Where members help each other to learn, understand and better
the ROG experience.
A place where noobs and experts alike gather for a common goal and good.
I see a Global community that exists mostly blind to the worlds ills.
I see a place that only holds the best of intentions toward all that enter.

I see a place that sees the complaints last .. instead of first.
Where rage in RMA is common place without due cause.

Finally, I see a place where the misunderstanding of ones neighbor
bringing the world to the brink on a daily basis ... never happens.

Personally, as yourself, I intend to see it stays that way my brother.c.

((( The example was/is in Iraq.)))

05-07-2012, 02:41 PM
mm, but..

I consider myself a leader of nations.. and cant relate to my Swedish heritage, because is not political correct over here, in any way..

Is it possible for me to create a new republic or land, and use that one, in my profile.. In which i am the King..???


I have already created the flag, did that 6 months ago..

05-07-2012, 03:00 PM
Brother .. You Sir are a King no matter the land you stand upon.

Declare yourself PolarKing .. when 'they' come to complain ..
send them out back to take it up with your loyal subjects.

Not politically correct ... hahahha ... exactly.
That beats America .. where nothing is correct .. politically. hehe
Where now the mere mention of GOD, Flag, Constitution or the word Freedom..
sends little children running and screaming in the streets .. or laughter.
A land where so-called 'outsiders' come seeing nothing but
opportunity and prosper and our children are taught not.
I love this country ... and treasure the 'melting pot' of cultures.
A walk down most any street is a tour of Nations .. She is better for it..
as are 'We' within here.
But none came to find 'their' country .. they came to America.
They find Her and embrace Her .. our children can not.
Mine know Her well.

Sorry OP .. got off subject .. thats OK .. I understand...hahahha

Fly the ROG Flag ::: I like it. Globally. Black and Red ... Wouldn't that
make a fantastic Global symbol ...
a true sign ...
All are Welcome Here.
Across the World...
Peace ... whatta dream...c.

Country of origin is mandatory for everyone registered since the change over. Older registrations will often show as Taiwan ROC as default, but this can be changed in the user profile.

05-14-2012, 01:49 AM
Can it or will it be part of the policy in the future to include that to the left under
the avatar as displayed ..randomly now ? As not in this thread .. yet in others.
Referenced above. #5

05-14-2012, 07:10 AM
It should be in every thread every forum. I'm not sure why you're only seeing it sometimes.

05-14-2012, 08:14 AM
LMAO! i ent the only one thats lost the plot then. :D smashin job

05-14-2012, 10:24 AM
there are those who types a bunch of jibberish there too, like and other things

05-14-2012, 01:30 PM
That part is good to go .. a lil individuality ...

kkn- under the post count ... an 'official' where ya from ?
Especially someone new that 'we' dont know yet .. a soon to be friend.
But .. ie .. what good is giving advice .. if the OP is from Letiva or our
new friend in Argentina?
Who ships to these places ... ect ...

Thanks M.c.

05-14-2012, 01:48 PM
i mean on the "location" post C.

08-01-2012, 12:38 PM
kkn..yep.. We can type anything there .. and I have seen some very strange places listed .. hell, other side of madness..ect..

down below there .. I see it often on mine (not Location--under 'everything else' on the left) United States (location/region)
This would be quite helpful ... still ..
Not sure why it is hit or miss though ... a Member can not complete the 'join' form without it.c.

Hahaha, I guess you don't get the meaning of the in my location then mate :p Basically what I have used for it, is an unusable DNS Sever Entry....it's actually called a void, or dark hole....it's actually not allowed to be used. My Screen name Myk SilentShadow is from an RP I used to do a few years ago, character is a Shadow Demon who comes from a place called Silentium Umbra, which is Latin and trasnlates roughly to "Silence of the Shadows". And because I am a night owl and I love being out and about in the dark. It suited me perfectly and I thought instead of putting Silentium Umbra up as my Location, i'd use the DNS Server Black Hole instead...as it is dark, though casts no shadow lol....and this is a Forum all about PC's, I figured it would make sense to use it :p :cool:

Btw for anyone who still doesn't know, the name is Myk = Mick. Why you ask? well, it's my real nickname and if you think it's silly, then how do you say system? it's the same principle :p

08-01-2012, 01:20 PM
That is good ... haha.. Im 'still' talking about under that .. as in the image ..

<<<<<< Over There.

EDIT ::: a curious observation : I deleted my 'location' in 'profile' -- now this correctly shows
up in 'most' new posts ??? but .. if I 'edit' the post -- it disapears on re-save. weird.c.
