Pretty much this. I've let this topic go for a few days to see if any good came from it, but it seems to all be a bunch of he-said-she-said gossipy bologna. The forums aren't a tabloid, guys. Find something else to discuss, please.

Are they not the same thing?

Yes, but they renamed it after a game they play. Truly the innocence has been lost.

so instead of pretending to kill actual people, they're now pretending to kill made-up people in a video-game setting. seems like a step up to me, if only a marginal one :3

that said, kids are the only ones with enough time on their hands to play crazy amounts of video games. that would bey guess as to why. :3

Hey guys, if we can't handle this thread, we won't have it. It's that simple.

I'm pretty sure we've had this same discussion more than a few times already. When it's officially announced for release, then we can try this again. Until then, let's find something else to do. :3

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

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.

Actually, under normal circumstances this would be deemed unconstructive and against the spirit of our Rules (as it is not only an image macro, it's one encouraging piracy), so it would be edited or deleted entirely at the discretion of the moderator dealing with it. as an example of what we don't want to see happening, though, i'm letting it stand :3

@Shane904: That would count as current-gen since you're doing it on a current-gen platform. Discussing your experience with it on an actual Wii would be okay; discussing your experience with it in Wii Mode on a Wii U is not.

He's asking about fan remakes (Sonic 2 HD and Project AM2R, for example), which I believe have been discussed in articles on this site before.

I think these are things we'd just keep an eye on — it's one thing if users are discussing playing these games but a whole 'nother kettle of fish if the devs behind them were coming here, offering up files for download and asking our users for input on some sort of special beta version, for example. It would depend on how the topic plays out, i suppose. :3

@Neko_Rukiafan: I didn't delete your thread, it was archived with an explanation: http://www.nintendolife.com/forums/wii/fishing_resort_review#...

the bottom line is that I had to step in with another user who had also posted a full review to our forums this very morning, and it would not be fair for me to allow your thread to continue to slide under the radar with an available recent duplicate (i hadn't seen it before for whatever reason, that's why I hadn't locked/redirected it sooner). Artwark's thread had no available recent duplicate, so theirs was allowed to stay open, but yours had a duplicate available to redirect towards — one you had created, no less.

If you want proof of the reason behind reader reviews being disallowed on the forums, it is here. This rule has always been there. If you have seen it go unenforced for whatever reason, it's merely because we cannot be everywhere at once and if something doesn't get reported, we may miss it. Artwark's thread earlier had been reported and was handled, and then I found your thread while looking for something else earlier. Call it the [un]luck of the draw.

If you'd like to continue being dramatic, that's on you, but the least you could've done was just ask if you had a question regarding an act of moderation here. :(

Hey guys, sorry I didn't catch this sooner, but it's not fair for me to ask one user to not post reviews to the forums this morning and then let this continue to slip past. It's okay to post your impressions and stuff, to talk about how you enjoyed games or not, but per a long-standing request from the directors, formal reviews are not allowed to be published to our forums. You're welcome to host your review(s) on your own site and link to them via your user signature and/or profile information, but that's as far as we go at this time with regard to reader reviews. Please be more careful in the future. :3

Here's a link to your thread from a few months ago about this game, @Neko_Rukiafan, if you'd like to continue this discussion there. Enjoy! :3

Hey Artwark, I'm going to ask that reviews not be published to our forums, please. It's a long-standing request from the site directors that we not have users using our forums for reader reviews. That said, we haven't had a thread about this game in a while, so I'm changing the title so that it's just a general thread. Please don't do this again, though. Thanks in advance!

I'm pretty sure it's in the works.

On a related note (no i'm not reviewing the game, just wanna talk about it), i don't think i've seen a thread for this yet, so i've taken the liberty of turning this into one. has anyone else given this game a try? i picked it up on impulse myself — the story is predictable and the translation is mid-90's Konami-style atrocious, but i'm a sucker for that sort of thing. the gameplay is interesting, but the difficulty level ramps up on you quick once you've got them unlocked. i need to try grinding my doods up some levels and see if that helps. :3
