    I know I'm only a noob but I'll give me tupence :D

    Like I've mentioned before somewhere, after a few years and the original xbox I'm just catching up on the whole modding, gaming side of things but I do work in I.T and that being the case along with the way I am I've been reading and looking as much as time allows on shed loads of different console/tech sites the last couple of months and this is by far the best I've come across so don't think you lot should be so down on yourselves lol

    Yeah ok it does seem quieter than other sites tbh but look at the conversations on 99% of the threads, they mostly end up on some tangient that has nothing to do with the topic. So annoying when your trying to read a topic about how to set your paths so your console dash can read them and seeing 2 or 3 people claiming to be some sort of Kevin Mitnick over pages and pages of the thread by trying to prove how Windows Media Center libraries are a different format than Windows Media Player libraries or how they have successfully uninstalled 'Internet Explorer' from there windows pc which then deteriorates to who can be the biggest 'chat Rambo' and get all macho ..... on a gaming thread on internet :'( ffs pmsl

    You've been spared all that here and the threads are mostly straight to the point, the advice spot on and the overall lay out simple and clear ..... like has already been said you've been good enuff to put up an 'open source' site but unfortunately gamers on the whole are a selfish lot and will take and not say thanx or give back by way of making posts so will always seem quieter than what it really is,

    I tend to waffle anyway so least ya can be reading my shite in future..... if ya don't ban me first :-$:D

    As for the competition, it's still a good idea like ya say on a smaller scale though personally I've not got me hopes up, I've not won anything since I won an original sony walkman from clarks shoes when I was about seven.....thing was so big I had to train for the summer so I could carry it up and downstairs.... if people saw it now days they'd assume it was a ghetto blaster or summin was so big but in them days was state of the art equipment ....think it ended up as a door stop, cant remember but I've not held much hope since.

    Cheers

    Bc

    I've seen some good posts by you Backchat, and I do agree you are more likely to get a direct to the point answer here! so both has its pros and cons.

    I would never force people to register here, its just pointless and annoying to the end user. I've signed up to websites in the past thinking I could download, or even view something I needed, then it turns out it was not at all what I was after... so a massive waste of time! If people want to register they will, no point in having 1000's of new users signing up a day if non of them ever post.

    Looking the amount of views some threads have here is enough to know Digiex is serving a purpose well.

    E.g. a recent general post about "Windows 8 and your Xbox 360 controller" has 5700+ views over the last few months:

    The Xbox 360 Hard Drive hack tutorial I created is now up to 1.4 million views and 2000+ replies, not bad to be honest!

    We should have the winners posted up, I believe were all agreed on who has won what this month!

    I like winners. They deserve what they win. The Feature King has an abundance of cats at his disposal to do his every bidding.

    Best Newsposter:
    Sadly we felt there was no posts that matched the quality needed and made front page news. However we would still like to give away the prize, therefore we are rolling it over to February as an extra prize which will go to Member of the Month.

    Member of the Month will be decided by a few factors, number of posts, being most helpful and genuinely being the best member on Digiex in the month of February.


    If the lucky winners can please PM me when they have a moment with the region they would like the MS Codes from and we will get them sent out asap :)


    Thank you to everyone who took part!!! :)

    I think we're be letting the roll-over prize run for February as its a short month and quite late into it already. However it will likely return in full for March. :)
