Ask GBATEMP has two purposes:
1) allowing people to ask questions and letting members of the community provide clear and direct answers
2) at the end of the day it's also a "FAQ" (Frequently Asked Questions).
If you know the answer to a question, you are welcome to share your knowledge with the community. You too can help build the big FAQ that will soon constitute Ask GBAtemp.
It's partially because they want a higher "best answers ratio" probably, but also because they want to help. Since this works like a F.A.Q. as well, you can ask a question, and answer it immediately so that other users who are wondering can get the information.
It has nothing to do with best answer ratio as you can't see that publicly.
"You also get a 'Best Answers' ratio which is based on the amount of useful answers you've posted. There is no need to try and improve your ratio for the sake of it, as your ratio is completely private and is never displayed publicly."
Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's
"And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range
OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.
@The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
