  1. Make Modding Great Again...

    <<Begin Rant>> What is modding?? I feel like lately the line between a build and a mod has been so blurred that a lot of people don't seem to know the difference any more. Builds with stickers winning in mod competitions just seems wrong to me. For me CES 2017 was a very interesting trip. Unlike most peeps who go there to see the cool stuff, I was more excited to meet some of the faces behind some of the great builds and mods that we got to see. Thankfully someone of the people who I met know the difference between and mod and build (you know who you guys are). Calling a clean build is like flinging poo on the work of greats like Bill, EEL, Cheaps, Calen, Dave, Bob & Rod, Stuart, Mos, etc. So I ask you... what is your definition of a mod? What is a build, and what is customized case? I feel like that zoo hosts some of the biggest names in the modding universe, so I ask the Guardians of the Mods as to what would you call a mod vs a build vs a customized case. Every time I see a big box forum mod of the month competition featuring clean builds with maybe a couple stickers makes me wanna pour hot curry in someones eyes. I'm not a modder, I'm a builder. I may have customized some of my BUILDS with some custom parts, but I don't think I have yet to mod anything. So I ask builders like me out there (you know who you are) to stop calling yourselves modders. If you haven't really voided the damm warranty, it's not a mod. Here is hoping that we can clean up the definitions of modding, and make sure that people who do real mods and custom work (including scratch builders) to get the recognition they deserve. Nothing wrong with builders, I just don't like them to considered modders. Between I added a sticker to this post, so I guess it's now a mod. I should go submit this as my mod of the month entry.... Modders... Please make modding great again. <<End Rant >> Don't get me wrong, builders/modders you all do great work and everyday I learn from all you folks out there. So don't stop what you do, keep the inspiration rolling, keeping pushing those boundaries... just don't blurr them too much please. Captain CurrySauce
