    What do you think about networking / wiring closet posts discussing builds that users did? This would be like the "DIY Server Builds", but doesn't need its own forum. It could be added to the DIY forum section (adding "and Networking" to the section title) or it could be threads in the Networking section. The idea is to have a little more formality than we see in the General Chat "Hardware pron" thread, and allow discussions about each build to happen in its own thread, as we do now for server builds. It should probably be limited to builds that users here did themselves (or were the designer / team lead on if for work projects), otherwise it won't be much different from either "Hardware pron" here or many areas on Reddit.

    I think the DIY forum works if that is what you are proposing. I assume this means you have something to show :)

    Sounds good to me.
    Nothing earth-shattering. I just realized I never posted pictures of the completed build, just "work in progress" with cables draped a couple of years ago.

    Here's a "teaser" picture of the network part of my home server racks. I'll post a full write-up to the DIY section within a few days - just getting the material organized for a larger post on my site first.
