Welcome Community!

Thank you all for joining. As I have PM/DM folks the XR Hardware and HW Help Categories are ready for use.

Please use Site Feedback to offer help with tsg systems for: Each main Category will likely have 2 Subcategories one for Help and the other a resource category. In XR Hardware we have Hardware Central that will contain maybe a set of rules, community links. Product links snd something else…

XR1 News! This Category Main container. What tags should be used? Should we have a couple of specialized Subcategories?

XR Software Maybe we could use tags like Linux, Open-source, xr-videoplayer? and…

3dprinters & Mods Does this Category seem good to have for 4dprint snd other diy mods? if yes recommended tags. Just keep in mind we want to keep things not too complicated.

Community Help thinking this could be a general. site help question. To help users with unterface etc… Tags would be handy. A Subcat could contain user how tos on interface etc… the Subcat would need tags to help sort this info. Help creating This documentation would be a boon

Site Feedback could likely use some general tags related to site ie ux, Dination with a Subcat that contains some useful links.



Topic Threads:
Op Responsabilities

1) Put care into creating Topics. ie no Trainwrecks or Topics designed to conduct attacks against individuals or organisations.

2) As the owner your topic; help keep your topic on track. If a member(s) goes off topic be polite and remind them of your topics purpose. If the member(s) continue to disrespect your topic request moderator involvement. ie @heliosurge with link to off topic post(s) & names of offenders. Now be fair & try to give them 2 chances to “get on topic”.

Topic Participants Responsibilities:

1) Respect the Op’s Topic & each other. Help the Op by offering a polite reminder to others when off topic.

2) Debate issues not people or organisations. Avoid accusations, insults, personal attacks. Debates can get heated which is fine but know your limits and take a break when needed.

Our forum has 4 tiers of Leadership:


  1. Site Admin (Top Level) :shield:

Category & Tags Update

March 27, 2023

1. Added tags to Games

Also in XR Hardware I have started to implement tag descriptions. Need to look more into this feature.

2. Still Looking for suggestions for:

  • Maybe Windows, Linux, Android? Maybe could use same tags as Games with later adding Secondary tags? maybe Util, Videoplayer…

Maybe Xrtropolis, XR News…

Or should we have maybe 3 News Categories?
1…XR1 News - Info on site updates. Maybe 2 Tags Announcements, Digest

Seperate Category for Articles - Group could be used to extend this beyond staff. End of the Month add articles via outlet to there own Monthly Topic contsiner.

ie Several articles from RoadToVR moved/Compiled into March 2023, RoadToVR or…

Then of. course the Youtube Category need feedback on tags and if creating a monthly Youtube channel. First Post Would detail each post for that Month with quick link to said video.
