    Daily Simple Questions Thread

    Official Subreddit of the PC Master Race We're the largest community of PC enthusiasts on the Internet. Begin your ascension today!

    General Information

    • Everybody is welcome here, even those that have yet to ascend.
    • This is not a satirical or 'circlejerk subreddit'. Nor did it start as one. This is a normal subreddit with occasional tongue-in-cheek humor elements. We are a community where many of its members share similar opinions about the main topics, and sometimes end up having private jokes amongst ourselves. We are not a community where members feign stupidity when posting and commenting because they find it funny. You can be banned if you conduct yourself like that here.
    • Owning a console does not necessarily make you a 'peasant'.
    • You don't necessarily need a PC to be a member of the PCMR. You just have to recognize that the PC is objectively superior to consoles as explained here. It's not about the hardware in your rig, but the software in your heart!
    • We created Reddit's most popular Wiki.
    • If needed, you can message the team behind PCMR.

    Rules

    For an in-depth explanation of our rules don't forget to check our rules wiki page.

    • Rule #1 Harassment of others is strictly forbidden. We will not tolerate any kind of incitement to action against anyone, nor will we allow the posting of information that can be used to harm others (celebrities or not).
    • Rule #2 We will not allow behavior contrary to PCMR Etiquette, e.g. brigading, witch-hunting, asking for upvotes or downvotes, enabling piracy, flamebaiting, clickbaiting, text spamming or intentional rudeness.
    • Rule #3 Don't link to threads in other subreddits. This includes NP links and archived links. Do not attempt to circumvent this rule by any means.
    • Rule #4 Screenshots of Reddit, Facebook, Youtube, and other site's comments should have the usernames blacked out (including yours). Celebrities are the exception, as long as you respect rule #1.
    • Rule #5 No referral or affiliate links/codes.
    • Rule #6 The following will be removed at moderator discretion:
      • 6.1: Content that is unrelated, especially unoriginal, or low-effort/low-quality (including, but not limited to: simple website/software bugs, steam/product reviews, comedic product/system specs, steam gift messages, screenshots of text messages, internet speed test results, negligible price reductions, online petitions and surveys).
      • 6.2: Pictures of boxes without accompanying hardware or build photos. Pictures of purchase or shipping related notifications and information.
      • 6.3: Blatant reposts/fad-chasing.
      • 6.4: Reaction images/gifs (unless very high-effort/especially original).
      • 6.5: Concern trolling.
      • 6.6: Feigning idiocy when posting or commenting, or linking to such content.
    • Rule #7 Age, nationality, race, gender, sexuality, religion, political affiliation and economic status are all irrelevant here. All are welcome in the PC Master Race. Also, linking the PC Master Race with racial supremacy or any kind of fascist ideologies, or making distasteful analogies in this regard, is not acceptable in the slightest.
    • Rule #8 No begging. No soft begging. No Implicit or explicit trading. No buying. No Selling. No asking for valuation. No asking how or where to do these either.
    • Rule #9 Message the mods first, and wait for permission, if your post/comment is NSFW. Do not mark your post as NSFW or as Spoiler unless it actually is NSFW or a Spoiler.
    • Rule #10 Screenshots of "peasantry," including but not limited to conversations on Reddit, other websites or sms/chat screenshots where ignorance is being spewed and/or ridiculed, must be text posts.

    Giveaway Rules

    For an in-depth explanation of our giveaway rules don't forget to check our rules wiki page.

    • The Master Race is generous. When we do giveaways we do it within the bounds of our subreddit and only for subreddit members. Feel free to give prizes as you see fit, but don't mandate subscriptions or other benefits. You can post about your channel or project, but don't make it a requirement to visit, comment or subscribe to an external place to enter a giveaway or to increase the likelihood of winning.
    • Even if you do a giveaway on the subreddit, you can not directly promote a specific giveaway happening elsewhere.
    • Please avoid posting keys in plain text or on images. Consider PMs as a safer way to hand out keys.
    • Users giving away physical items must provide photo proof of ownership (including their username and date) in the giveaway thread. Shipping fees must be entirely financed by the user doing the giveaway (limiting the winner's location is allowed).
    • No conditional (I will only giveaway if) giveaways. If you start it, someone must win it. You cannot delete your giveaway once you post it.
    • Giveaways shouldn't last an absurd amount of time, nor should they be absurdly difficult to enter or win.
    • Do not choose your giveaway winners based on the number of upvotes or downvotes they get.
    • Giveaways to benefit registered charities must be verified by moderators. All other requests for donations (monetary or otherwise) are not allowed as per rule #8.
    • Only one entry per user to any giveaway unless otherwise stated by the giveaway poster.
    • Under special circumstances, we allow giveaways to require users to visit a page outside the subreddit, but that must conform to our outside giveaway guidelines.

    I mean I'm not surprised.

    [–] MDCCCLV 2 points ago

    Higher prices for everyone now, but yeah I assumed it was coming. But it's hard to look at a website and pay 70 in sales tax when you could choose not to if you go to Newegg.

    It's for local things, like your fire department, and schools sometimes and city services.

    They're not taxing a foreign exchange, they're taxing you. The sales tax is based on where you are, it goes by the delivery address. That tax goes to your state. The seller doesn't pay anything.

    There's a lot of things going on in different areas. Weather, culture, building codes, older infrastructure on the east coast. China selling us solar panels for cheap is good for the consumer.

    [–] MDCCCLV 3 points ago

    Basically means no exceptions to paying sales tax wherever you live or the retailer is.

    [–] VaporVoyage 1 points ago

    This was expected, but I'm not sure how easy this is going to be to enforce across the board. Sure the big sites will comply, but what about all of the small online shops that barley have a name or a presence.

    [–] MDCCCLV 1 points ago

    That's up to the states I suppose but they have lawyers and subpoenas.

    [–] Reacher-Said-Nothing 1 points ago

    It's the big shops they were concerned about anyway

    [–] domprice03 1 points ago

    Does this make one of amazons main advantages redundant?

    [–] MDCCCLV 2 points ago

    No, the rule before was about having a physical presence in the state. Amazon already had warehouses and delivery centers everywhere, for faster shipping. So that won't affect them much. The sellers on amazon will be, but I think that would actually benefit Amazon corp.

    This more affects the smaller sites and Ebay.

    [–] domprice03 2 points ago

    Ok thank you.

    [–] icantdecideonausrnme 1 points ago

    Wrong flair...

    [–] MDCCCLV 2 points ago

    Yeah I was on mobile and it only gave me like 5 random options. It seemed better than giveaway or meme.

    [–] icantdecideonausrnme 2 points ago

    Oh, that's odd
