  4. Reporting Broken Links

    Some of you might have noticed by now that at the bottom of the threads there is a new button called Report Broken Links. This little piece of code has been hand-coded by the MechoPirate Admin Team and we are pleased to say this is now working better than we anticipated
    Lets say a member by the name of peterparker puts a post up with a movie and 6 download links but none of those links work, Rather than skipping past them we ask if you can please click the
    Report Broken Links button and notify the author who can then either re-upload using mirrors OR trash the thread.
    As we run the site for the community and so many people frequent our site this is our way of asking for a little help, not only is it going to save many man hours per week it will also keep the content fresh and active for you all and encourage frequent visitation rather than sporadic

    We thank you for your assistance with this matter and hope you all enjoy the wonderful treats that MechoPirate has to offer

  5. We are currently on the look out for moderators. this means that we will need to expand the team to include more dedicated members which will help our current team handle the forums, your duties will be clear and a certain level of maturity is required if you even want to be considered for the position Section Moderator. Members can PM MechoPirate for an application, what you post will define what type of moderator you will be and ultimately if you are suitable to handle it. Members who constantly troll will not be considered, as mentioned before a certain level of maturity is required and as a moderator your view towards members will change drastically.

    If you would like to be considered for the position Start a Thread in the Announcements: Applications Section or PM MechoPirate with why you would be suitable. We are looking for dedicated members only, simply visiting the forums once every week will not be accepted. You are expected to be very active to handle both reports & threads without being told to, you will be working relevantly independent and must be able to make the judgment calls necessary for the job and yes, this could involve warning and even banning friends. those who are successful will be given moderator powers in the section they request and a free S-VIP VIP name for when they are off duty.

    My laptop had pre-installed Windows 8.1.

    Recently I upgraded to windows 10 (Home) thru Microsoft.

    I would like to upgrade it to windows PRO or Enterprise ,,,

    I downloaded windows 10 which has Home, pro, enterprise etc.. versions.

    However, when I try to upgrade, only option I get is HOME.

    I do not want to wipe my hard drive and try.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks for all you help.

    I haven't really played around with 10 yet(removed it from my PC).

    If you were running Home version of Windows 8.1 I think that's the version you will get with Windows 10. I could be wrong though.

    If you want PRO or Enterprise you will most likely have to wipe your hard drive.

    I believe that when you install the windows it automatically recognises which version you should install and therefore only gives you that option. Its either that or as c0rrupt has already said its a bad copy. To be honest, personally I would download the media creation tool (x86/x64)-
    Code:
    [ Only registered users can see the bbcode. Click Here To Register... ]
    whichever version you want directly from microsoft, create an IMG burn to disc and install it that way. Then when you've done that, download this -
    Code:
    [ Only registered users can see the bbcode. Click Here To Register... ]
    and run it, it'll stop microsoft spying on you as you will read on the page of that download ........You don't need to reformat your hard drive...choose to install a fresh copy whilst its doing that at some point it will ask if you want to keep personal settings and apps...check the box. You won't lose anything

    No you won't because when you download the media creation key, then run it, you can either do a direct install or you can install from a different media i.e. DVD/USB stick...there should be no need for a key

    I've installed win 10 on 2 of my pcs with no problem at all
