I know you guys normally just lock threads, and I think that is a reasonable thing. But I just noticed that the Nintendo Mobile page is overflowing with pointless locked threads at this point. I feel like you might want to break with tradition and clean that up. Or even just bump them down somehow, if you have the ability. Just a thought.

@Heavyarms55 Yeah I mentioned that as well awhile back that they need to stop the Pokemon Go FC Spammers as well.

Honestly I am beginning to think their spam detection systems needs an overhaul or something

@Tasuki I don't think it is a system. I am pretty sure it is just the human moderators. I don't think there is much they can do to prevent the spammers, beside having a pinned PoGo FC thread. But there is no need to have piles of locked threads for the same things.

@Heavyarms55 Mods can archive threads, they just don't bother.

Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.

@gcunit I archive pretty much all of the Pkmn GO spam threads. I'll take a look and clean it up if there are any left.

Except for one or two threads (which are now gone), they're all at least 3 months old at this point. The sub-forum just isn't very active I guess.

Given how much closer Microsoft and Nintendo have gotten in the past year with things like crossplay, will Nintendo Life be doing a stream with chat for the Microsoft E3 conference this year in case anything Nintendo appears?

I'd like to see community/user versions of the ranking articles like best Mario Karts, Nintendo consoles etc.

I'm always interested in the NL staff picks, but doing a user poll/survey would be nice too. Especially since people get so salty with comments like "terrible list NL!!" , it'll give those folks a chance to give their own ranking.

@antdickens Just noticed a minor issue. After a misclick, I just noticed that some of the links under the videos tab on the top of the site leads to "The playlist does not exist." Namely, the News & Previews, Top 5, and Tips & Guides all lead to nothing.

Perhaps a cleanup is in order.

@antdickens Do you have any idea when the automatic closing of old threads goes into effect? Or was it a PushSquare only thing? If not, we may need to start adding ''OT'' to the appropriate threads.

antdickens

@Octane yep, I can enable that now. Same rules? Any topic with the last post over 1 year old gets locked, any topic that is locked and over 18 months old gets archived. Thoughts? That'll remove the vast majority of topics from the default views.

@Octane come to think of it, I think we should just archive topics that have had no replies in 12 months, rather than locking them. Then anything locked over 18 months gets archived too. Thoughts?

@antdickens Archiving wouldn't be necessary I think; what if people are still looking for specific answers that have been answered before? You can't search for archived threads, right? But that's up to you!

I'll edit most of the game specific threads to include "OT" in the title.

And while we're on the topic. Have you ever thought about merging all the Wii-related forums into a single Wii forum, just like the single Switch forum? Same with Wii U, DS and 3DS. These are a lot less active nowadays and I personally see no reason to keep it all separated.

antdickens

@Octane yep, you can search archived topics (it will search them by default) they just don't show in the browsing/listings anymore. So I think that's probably the best approach. I can certainly exclude any with "OT" in the title from being affected, it will also ignore any sticky threads.

As for merging, yep, I intend to do that as well as it should make things a lot neater

It might be worth going a bit further and merging DS with 3DS, and Wii with WiiU.

Yeah I don’t know either.

Eh! My gameplay videos

@antdickens Alright, in that case I can see your point!

@Delibheel Well, maybe DS and Wii can go into the Retro forum instead. I think that makes more sense.

What if I just add OT to all my future topics

> check if ReaderRagfihs made the thread
>> check if title contains "OT"
