I'm afraid that yes, the articles in the articles room do have to be about games after all this site is called audio games! net. Of course articles that cover complex technical issues related to games, eg, how to install some sort of software to play games such as the Japanese translation software are fine, but games do need to be the focus.
Your welcome of course to put something none game related in the offtopic room, though I imagine there are probably better places for more formal stuff not related to games and just related to teck etc.
Our souls with high music ringing; O men! It must ever be
That we dwell in our dreaming and singing, A little apart from ye. (Arthur O'Shaughnessy 1873.)
