I'm not sure if I'm going to stick around much longer given TBD's tendency to delete my threads, some I understand, but others like my informal "no score given" review of Fishing Resort which wasn't even reviewed by the staff here gets deleted and I get a warning. Sorry, but this is just really upsetting and just makes me want to quit. I might return soon once I cool off, but I'm not a very happy member right now.

Gosh, it's been FOREVER since we played Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate!!

We will hunt again once I download the game "my Wii U disc-drive is shot".

@technotaylor98 Wouldn't be the first time. In any case, goodbye (for now)!

@theblackdragon Perhaps the rule against review topics should be added to the Community Rules page? That could help keep people aware.

And maybe also a note about thread necromancy, another issue that got its own thread. I'll throw in extra bacon…

I might come back some day, but I just can't see it with the downward spiral this site is going down.

Just remember to go f45t. Sanic f45t, or Shadough f45t, it duznt matur, juts goh f45t.

The Site took a hit the moment Corby left(he's rarely here anymore, and posts the 'odd' review), along with James, and I actually miss 'WaltzElf's Vs the world' posts, Many of the oldschool users(WarioWoods for ex) who vanished from the forums, who are maybe only seen commenting in the main pages articles. Also, the Wii U forum is nowhere near as exciting & fun as the Wii forum was during last generation. Maybe it's because I'm just getting older, or things truly were more exciting during last generation with the Wii & DS, plus the 3DS launch mega hype train.

Exactly! How are we supposed to know if the rule isn't listed anywhere.

By having a mod very respectfully and politely informing you. That's what happened to you.

If it were a widespread issue, it likely would warrant a spot in the "official" rules, but there are also many non-written rules we abide by, and the offenders are gently reminded.

You're making it a bigger deal than it needs to be.

@Waveboy I would have loved to be here during those happening Wii days that included the excitement of the oh so fresh at the time, Virtual Console.. There wasn't all the doom & gloom threads that are just boring now and back then people talked about the games for longer than a week after they were released.

It's so odd to think nostalgically of the Wii days.

There has been arguing since the beginning.

I'm not sure if you're joking around or not due to the use of winky-smiley-face, so I'm going to take this comment at face value and answer accordingly:

Sometimes there are issues not quite pressing enough to warrant full-on Rule changes; some things only happen occasionally, and the Directors hand down a decision and expect the moderation team to follow it regardless whether it's an official Rule or not. It's like the unwritten rule regarding advertisement on the forums — as long as we're consistent, and as fair as we possibly can be to all involved, people understand, and when someone crosses a line on accident, we remind them of our stance and take action (e.g. thread redirection and/or locking) as necessary.

With regard to 'unwritten' rules , though we may have posted in the 'Announcements' area, we do not go in expecting users to already know these things, so we do our best to educate and then get everyone moving toward an acceptable topic. This is what happened to you, @Neko_Rukiafan. At no time were you in danger of a ban, it would have taken much more than one review topic and we would have had to interact with you over it multiple times — and even so any ban would have been temporary pending your acknowledgement of our request and willingness to cooperate. We also always have the Contact Form available if there are any questions, comments, or concerns regarding acts of moderation here at NL, at no time were you denied access to me if you had concerns. If you just want a scapegoat for your potentially leaving NL, that's one thing, but I do not see how I have personally gone out of my way to persecute you in any way, shape, or form and I do not find it fair to be accused of such.

@Klimbatize: Thank you.

Also, on a more general note, @Jazzer94 is absolutely correct, there has been arguing and infighting since the beginning. The only real difference between then and now is that we had maybe a fifth of our current userbase back in those days, lol.

Not just the Wii days, I’m think nostalgically of what I just had for lunch.

Not trying to argue with you but who mentioned anything about the arguing? If anything, @Waveboy misses the “WaltzElf vs. the world” arguing.

Maybe argue wasn't the best word but I can remember seeing doom and gloom as far back as WiiWare World? (was that the name been a longtime) when I just lurked and was trying to make my little amount of tween money stretch as far as possible and needed guidance to avoid the turds but yeah there was also arguing too.

Yeah, there were plenty of complainers back then. Maybe not as doomish because Ninty was actually making a lot of money, but there was always things people didn't like. People still talk about games here. Even If the Mario Kart, Pokemon, and Smash Bros weren't sticked, they'd still have a permanent place on the top of their respective sections. I think some of you guys just have same problem I do: we aren't talking about the games everyone else is talking about.

Ah, the great WaltzElf wars. Those were the days. There wasn't a subject he couldn't argue about, often taking it to ridiculous lengths. Him vs. Tendoboy were the greatest there was at the time. But alas, times are a changing.

@Kewlan not so much, but 10 minutes here usually become a few hours so I'll try to finish everything before coming back

It's always nice to have a demon in the rough. Rather than everything being one big peaceful Nintendo Land.
I enjoyed his do no-wrong bantering and him always trying to prove those silly nintendo fanboys wrong. I got into quite a few nerd heated arguments with the guy. But i guess NL had enough with him once he took yet another jab at the site itself and the recent quality of it's articles.

I actually kept in touch with TendoBoy via Swap note on the 3DS, but Nintendo axed that brilliant little hilarious wonderful piece of software. It was easily my favorite thing about the little 3D hand held. Sniffles
