Though they have been few and far between, there are times when user(s) with radically unpopular opinions and/or outright trolls show up on the forums. If you see them posting and think that they are out of line (and I don't mean something like 'Mario is a terrible character', I'm talking personal insults or foul language or whatev'), please, use that 'report' button. It only takes a second for a mod to look over a post someone's reported, and if it's a problem, we'll take care of it... and if the user themselves turns out to be a problem, they'll be taken care of as well. If they're still around after a major outburst, chances are that (a) they've been warned and are being monitored for future problems, or (b) we're waiting for them to really hang themselves with multiple recorded outbursts before nominating them to the admins for bannination.
That said, recently we've had a rash of users wanting to jump on said unpopular/trollish types in threads even when they've done nothing wrong. Voicing one's opinion is what we all do here. Please, don't freak out when a known problem user makes a normal opinionated comment, and whatever you do, stop poking them. Refute them if you must, but posting comments like like 'why are you even here?' and continuing to comment about them in-thread (as opposed to keeping things in there on-topic) does not help the situation at all and may serve to goad them into further outbursts, which will reflect on you just as much as them.
Bottom line: if you don't like someone here, ignore them. Do not harass them. If they cross the line, report them, and they will be dealt with, but other than that, just leave them alone and let them fizzle out on their own. As much as we joke about editing your posts and stuff, cleaning up a thread is actually rather tedious work. :3

wise words, TBD. and my apologies, as i know i have just earlier this afternoon done exactly what you've mentioned. there is a user that bothers me and whom i wish would learn a little respect for others, but it is not my place to tell them that, nor should everyone else have to wade through my rebuttals when they're there for the topic at hand. so to theblackdragon, the other mods and admins, and the entirety of NL, i apologize.

@dragon Whats exactly is a troll ? I only post here and over at Game Informer's website. I tried ign.com and 1up but felt people generally just went nuts on each other over silly things.

I thought I used to know the definition of a troll. Well, I do, it's just I can't put it into words.Also, real sage advice there, tbd.

@Dante: when a user shows up here, on a Nintendo forum, parroting BS about how much Nintendo sucks and/or how much greater Sony/Microsoft are instead of Ninty for (insert reason here) in order to derail a topic and send it spiraling down in flames, that is considered trolling. here's what Wikipedia has to say about internet trolls, if you were looking for some sort of comprehensive explanation. :3

On an unrelated note, has anyone gotten their prizes from the previous contests? It's been a long time since the winners were announced and I still await the item Nintendo shall be shipping. Any other winners having this problem?

Viral - not the place, fella We are looking into it, I promise - Ant is chasing up all the prize providers and making sure they get sent out. You will get your prizes!
I am not ignoring you. I just do not post much.

Awesome words, Dragon. I can't stand some trolls but I rise above it. Never really see a need to argue, just an ignore will do. Croosing the line however..... I'll let you guys do your job. My time will come... eventually.
Right now, I'm working towards DigiPen and my YouTube channel!
