Dark themes for websites are becoming popular, do you think NintendoLife needs a dark theme or a night mode?

I suppose a night mode option would be okay, though personally i can't stand them. Reading white text on black background (which tends to be the standard for dark/night modes) seriously bothers my eyes after more than a minute.

She-Ra is awesome. If you believe otherwise, you are clearly wrong.
Urban Champion is GLORIOUS.

Maybe a green theme, like the one they added to the kindle app.

It’s dark green text on light green backgrounds, kinda like the GB, but softer.

Yeah I don’t know either.

Eh! My gameplay videos

I often see mods in the forums locking threads that get "revived" after having been dead for a while. If that's the case, couldn't you guys just set the site to auto-lock any dead thread after a certain amount of time? Seems like it would save you a lot of trouble.

I was actually about to comment on this, so I'm glad it's already being talked about. I don't understand why it's bad to revive an old thread. It's better than making a new one. This is the first forum I've been on where that's seen as a bad thing.

@SuperLuigi111 This is the first forum I've been on where reviving old threads is sometimes not a bad thing. The other forums I've been to it's frowned upon no matter the situation, sometimes to the extent that threads are automatically locked after a month or so of inactivity.

Still waiting for Atlus to make Snowboard Kids 3

Strange, I've never encountered that. I imagine it would waste more space the site uses to have multiple threads on the same thing.

Just a thought, but on a game's pages you have the developer, what about if you click on that it shows all the games by them.

Have you guys ever considered having a "Shameless self-promotion" thread. A set portion of the forums where people are allowed to link to their YouTube channels, their Sonic Deviantart OCs and their surveys for college papers? I know you guys block it in the regular forums and I am glad you do. But I think it would be reasonable to have a separate page in the forums for it.

Personally the way I would go about it is that when you click on it (and I would call it the "Shameless Self-Promotion" thread there would be a disclaimer where you point out that the following page contains links to external websites to which NintendoLife has no affiliation to and that you proceed at your own risk. I would also suggest having a rules list for this thread pinned at the top, where you state the obvious like "no linking to adult websites, no linking to rom/piracy websites"

It's just an idea. A way for people to share things in a dedicated spot hidden safely behind a disclaimer.

@antdickens Yup, a specific thread for it is exactly what I was talking about. Glad to see you're open to it!

Anti-Matter

Um....
Maybe a Filter that i can Censor any articles that contain rated 18+ games.
Just like Parental Control Apps for Switch.
When i Strictly allowed until rated Teen, i cannot even see any images of rated 18+ games from Switch News. That's a Big help for me.

So, for this website, maybe on the corner of each article has a button to Close the arcticle from View if i found Inappropriate articles, just to make sure younger audiences will NOT Able to access such games information like that.

My Top 5 games :
1. Dance Dance Revolution series (10 / 10)
2. The Sims series (9 / 10)
3. Portal Knights Switch (9 / 10)
4. Animal Crossing New Leaf 3DS (9 / 10)
5. ARMS (8 / 10)

@Anti-Matter All the kids play PUBG and Call of Duty these days, they're used to it

Just don't click on the articles if you don't want to see them.

@Octane I actually think he's got a neat idea even though his reasoning is heavily skewed.

Why not have a personalised home page which shows articles you might have missed which are relevant to your interests? it could be filtered by tags, and you could put it on a separate tab so you can switch between the main news feed and your personalise news feed. The 'Timeline' is already a thing, but it seems a little redundant given that articles generally appear in chronological order anyway.
