My suggestion is that the amount of Points a game costs to download should appear on the list of games released if you sort by region (since the cost of games is sometimes different between Europe and America).

WaveBoy, you can edit posts if you don't get it right the first time, or delete them entirely if you just can't get them right.

Well ya, but then you end up getting that ugly 'Edited on Sun 27th March, 2011 @ 03:41 by whoever' text at the bottom of your post. lol No but really, the problem arises for me when you create a new thread and you wan't your paragraphs and sentences to line up a certain way, along with pictures ect ect. Yet it never really turns out the way you want it 'because' there's no preview button to see what you have done, resulting in constantly going back and fourth to edit the damn thing. While The thread is 'already up' and people are checking it out while it's constantly being changed in the mean time because 'you're' editing it to get it to look the way you wan't. phew*

Ok, 'whatever' i know haha.
It's never going to change anyways, I'm used to the dinosaur layout anyways. :P
But again, an emoticon list and the ability to color your fonts would be nice...I mean really. Take a look at IGN's tool box, and then look at NL's. IGN's may be slightly over crowded but at least you have more freedom.

@WaveBoy I think comparing Nintendo Life to IGN is a bit of a David and Goliath situation :)

lol That may be, but what does that have to do with adding in a few more Thread options? I bet you guys could whip that up in a matter of seconds if you wanted to. :p

@WaveBoy: 'you guys' is actually one guy — Ant. He's got a day job and his own IRL stuff to deal with, same as all the rest of us do. he's got to juggle that along with other behind-the-scenes projects to actually keep the site up and running as well as the eventual promised front-of-house site upgrades. your continued patience is much appreciated. :3

I was just thinking about a bunch of stuff that would be great for the user profile pages (friends list, game collection, etc). Adding all that stuff would take a while, but I just thought of a way to knock all of it out at once. Why not just have a "journal" page on your account? Kind of like a really long signature that you can view on a user's profile.

CONSOLE REVIEWS!!!

no offense, but the console itself isn't important — the games are. without games to play, you may as well have just bought yourself quite the expensive doorstop for all the good it'll do you.

I was wondering why you people haven't done console reviews.

I had never heard of console reviews before silly IGN reviewing the 3DS.

On the Around The Web box - it would be good if:
a) They linked directly to the article, not a Game Revolution middle-man portal. Doubly so when the GameRev portal then links to Game Kicker, another portal. With so many ads and pop-ups that it should really be called Gamer Kicker for repeatedly crashing my Firefox.
b) 90% of them weren't badly written 'Top 10' / '10 Things About' lists with subjects so inane they border on parody (Top 10 Awful Looking Villains? They started using random phrase generators to decide the subjects?)

Give us links to actual interesting things going on around the web and it'll be cool. I understand the benefit of automation behind using portals, it's not like you guys aren't already busy enough without having to update the thing manually, but. Why not stick articles and reviews from Movemodo and Kinectaku there instead? I know I'd be more likely to visit them more often if I could see what was going on there from NL, and those static ads on the home page aren't so hot. The Kinectaku one looks like an advert selling Kinect hardware and games at a glance, lol

A welcome thread for new members to post a greeting would be a nice addition, I joined a week ago and noticed there was nowhere for me to introduce myself.
(I'm a new member on the site btw xD)

Lately, I've noticed that after initially posting a message, the "Edited on . . . " message appears at the bottom of my post. What's more, this edited date and time are the same as the "Posted . . . " date and time. I've only noticed it occasionally, but I just thought I'd share. ;)

@Shinesprite Not really an "idea for the site", but thanks anyway.

@All Thanks for your thoughts on the Around the Web box. Keep 'em coming!

I don't know if this is allready possible, but maybe it's an idea to let people PM eachother?
If this is allready possible can someone please tell me how to do it? =P
Maybe it's also a good idea to make an option to search for members. Doesn't seem to work right now... =)

EDIT:
And maybe make an option to make a profile where you can talk a little about yourself.
Then you can search up people and look at their profile, and maybe even leave a comment? =P

@zez: I've had it happen before at random as well. the comment i was posting would show up as 'edited on...' right when i first posted it, and i'd never actually used the 'edit' link at all — i'd just posted it, y'know? :3

These Around the Web topics are getting more hilariously inane by the day. "Top 10 things I don't want in Skyward Sword" (like one guy's promoted forum rant is of any interest or relevance to anyone), "Top 10 games that need sequels", the vast majority of the list being themselves sequels to existing franchises (no seriously, Banjo Kazooie, Crash Bandicoot and Earthbound are in there. Know what they all have in common? Sequels), and "Top 5 Trivial Ways I'd Use A Portal Gun in Real Life" (because the writer using his imagination to find 5 useful/interesting ways to use the Portal gun would be boring, so better to take five well-established in-game scenarios and change the word "test chamber" to "fridge")

When you delete someones comment, It should show who wrote the comment that got deleted, and at what time.

right, because calling attention to things is the exact reason we delete comments in the first place. no chance.

But then the comment wouldn't be deleted, it'd just be edited :P
And then everyone would be constantly asking what the offending comment was... somewhat removing the point of its deletion.

I know :P And despite my repeated poking fun at it, I do seem to keep clicking the stories, so I guess the thing is working. Curses!
