The opinions expressed by Darth Alice in that thread are his to express. He felt that some aspects of the build should have been done a different way and this is his choice. Altering his thread to express an opinion that is NOT his would be even more dishonorable.
It will not be modified to express an opinion that is not true to DA's own feelings towards the work.
If leaving it there is a sign of the type of community that the IRA is, then good. It shows that we have no problem letting people have their OWN opinion, not the opinion someone else feels they should have.
By that same token, wouldn't that imply that an individual here that feels that posts should be edited if someone has a difference of opinion, would indicate that apparently the entire community is that way? Then if that is the case, why would anyone share an opinion instead of just waiting for someone else to TELL them what their opinion should be?
Now, that being said, THIS is FX-Sabers. THAT is the Imperial Royal Arms. Let us all leave it that way as I said about 14 posts ago.
Had that been the case, that it was an honest review with no agenda, there would be no conversation about it here.
It is a lie to assert that an aluminum heatsink is better in any way save aesthetic to a copper heatsink. It is simply a fact that copper is the better heatsink. Does the aluminum heatsink he replaced it with look better? Possibly, but it is inferior in functionality. I was not aware that heatsinks in an entry level saber should be pretty. I am fairly certain that the majority of my customers would prefer a functional heatsink to a pretty one considering they never see the heatsink.
The aluminum tape is there to insure the heatsink stays both snug and centered. Could it be done differently, sure. This is an economical method which does the job and is in no way substandard. Again, could something else be used, sure. This is what we chose.
Heatshrink color? Really?
Wire gauge? That wire is imported for us and is rated at 4A plus which is far more than most ever draw from their sabers and higher than a lot of wire with a higher gauge. Again, asserting differently is simply an untruth.
I do not object, as was said earlier, to an honest review. However, to spread misinformation and use that misinformation as a way to attack someone, that is in poor taste.
EDIT: To add, if said forum is OK with this kind of spinning, then I am very very glad I am here at the FX-SABERs forums where we support one another and do our best to be honest and truthful.
