@Ryno: I know you're joking, but you do bring up a related point that deserves addressing: 'hiding' users is a bit trickier concept, I think — i'm not sure how it would work from Ant's point of view, but from mine, invisible posts from hidden users tend to scramble discussions, suddenly there's holes in the conversation and no one's sure who's talking to whom anymore and then when someone finally figures out that they're being ignored by (insert user here), there's just bad blood everywhere. At that point, it's not a question of whether our forums are easy to navigate, it's just a personal vendetta versus another user, and that sort of thing we ask that you all be mature about and just ignore a user if they bother you. :3

You can't really ignore certain threads, though, and if you have no interest whatsoever in 'game' threads, FC-trading threads, or other popular threads that are always seeing replies that put them back in the Unread list, it really does get cluttered with a lot of stuff you may not even care about, lol. I know I've missed certain threads pop up in my list before just because the other popular threads were going a mile a minute, y'know?

@Morpheel: it might help find certain threads, but you'd have to actively Favorite a thread in order to see it show up in that list, wouldn't you? May as well use your Watched Topics list for that. We're talking about customizing the Unread Topics list, though. I know not everyone uses it, but I use it every day, and it really does get to be a chore to sift through all the stuff that I'm not interested in posting in all the time in order to find the genuinely new stuff and check it all out. I can see why someone would ask for this feature.

And yeah, it may not be something high up on the totem pole, but it's an honest suggestion and deserves as much consideration as any of the others.

the OP is talking about the thread disappearing from the list entirely so that they're left with a list of only new or ongoing threads they would potentially be interested in responding to in their 'Unread Topics' page. having it simply collapse wouldn't really do much, i don't think, since they're just a line in a list already — doesn't get much shorter than that :3

I agree though, it'd be nice if we could get this implemented. Just another level of user customisation to how they use the forum board.

i wouldn't mind it either, to be honest. whatever gets people through the day. though there would need to be a way for people to see the threads they're ignoring or hiding so that they can unignore/unhide if they want (e.g. if the OP suddenly gets really, really into SSB and wants to join the existing discussion), and it shouldn't block them from seeing those threads if they click a link, just remove the threads from their 'unread' list or whatever.

so i destroyed a crystal last night and nearly had a heart attack because my game is set to auto-save and i walked out onto the map before shutting it off because i didn't want to continue before i'd beaten the game and seen the 'real' ending... i thought i was stuck and would have to go through this all over again D: thank goodness for being able to restart before having broken the crystal, lol :3

@cookiex: I forget if it was part of her support conversations with the avatar or if it was in the DLC someplace, but yeah, Tharja's hopelessly obvious about her feelings for the avatar. She kinda gets stalker-esque about it, though, like she knows exactly how important the avatar is to the world or the story but without ever breaking that fourth wall (it's complicated, but she's technically a necromancer and Grima is technically who she's supposed to be following, and the avatar is technically Grima's avatar... idk, it made sense in my head lol).

I much prefer Tharja with Henry when it comes down to it, they both have the whole necromancer and dark magic thing going for them so they fit well IMO :3

it doesn't sound like you broke the spring, it sounds like the first time (when you pulled it), the console still had the spring in the 'inserted' position. Then when you pushed it back in, the spring reset to the 'ejected' position (pushing it back out at you), so when you pressed it a third time it went back to the 'inserted' position with no problems. As long as the spring continues to work normally, it sounds like it's fine — just be careful to not pull your games while they're fully inserted into the system from now on. Remember, when they're ejected, they're naturally pushed out a ways so you can get a better grip on 'em :3

@CapnPancakes: With all due respect, you dropped an inflammatory bomb and left it in a thread asking for users to discuss GLBTQI issues in gaming, and the recent article thread proves how quickly that sort of thing can snowball even at a site like ours. No one is asking for your personal opinion, they're asking for game-related discussion. We're gonna handle this the way we do the MLP thread to cut the general nastiness between users; the MLP thread has functioned just fine over the years on its own with relatively little friction, and we'd like to see this thread as the same sort of 'safe space' for these users to engage in discussion.

You don't have to participate in this thread at all if you don't want to. No one is forcing your hand. Please leave it be if it bothers you, and participate in other threads if you like. Thanks in advance!

All right guys, after the fiasco that was that Tomodatchi Collection article thread, we're not having a second space for people to show their butts. This thread will be handled like the MLP thread — if you are in here, we ask that you stick to open, civil discussion of the topic at hand, which is clearly outlined in the first post. This is not the place to post homophobic statements, this is not the place to preach passive-aggressively about how 'wrong' being not-straight is. If that's what you want to do, we ask that you keep it to yourself. This is not the place for an open war between straights and non-straights, period.

Trolling will absolutely not be tolerated. The discussion in here has been nice so far, and we'd like to keep it that way. Users who post for the purpose of dropping inflammatory bombs will see their posts deleted. Users who continue to attempt to provoke a negative response in this manner may find their accounts banned from posting altogether. This will be your only warning, any complaints will be redirected to this post. Don't like it? Too bad. There are plenty of other forums that allow their users to absolutely run rampant over one another. If that's the kind of thing you want, go elsewhere.

What's odd is that some cousins (Lucina and Owain?) could get to an S relationship :O

given the long history of intermarriage between royal cousins, if it had been an honestly romantic relationship, it wouldn't really have surprised me, lol

@RicoPenguin: haha, i had no idea you were around on the forums. i was seriously about to give the hell up on that fight until i stumbled across your strategy, and then it was all 'there's no way it can be that easy', and then i started thinking up ways to make it work even better. thanks for doing the ground work, and you're welcome to add my tweaks to your guide if you like. anything that helps other players get through that battle, y'know? lol~

anyway, my party just dinged level 99 tonight and i'm finishing up the last few jobs i wanted on them — maybe later I'll go back and grind up all the rest of their jobs, but i'm tired of running circles out in the Florem area and would like to get back to the story, lol. here's hoping i'll have done enough to get through these last couple chapters already :3

@ShadJV: The setting of the game makes adoption absolutely likely — there are all kinds of villages being destroyed, people dying, children potentially orphaned. They could easily have had the parents adopt an orphaned child that somehow had the same 'bred' characteristics from the adoptive parents. The real problem (I think) is that it would've opened the game up much more than it already had been. It already takes an insane amount of time to go through and see every single conversation available between the characters, imagine how many more they'd have to come up with for same-sex couples and their ensuing children... not to mention all the children they'd have to invent for the fathers since all the current children are tied to the mothers, and the extra conversations between those kids and the other kids and the avatar and holy crap, it'd be absolutely insane. amazing, but insane.

After grinding conversations in that game for a few weeks (and i'm still not done! i have to go back and finish... someday), as much as I would've enjoyed having same-sex relations an option in the game, I have to admit I can see why they would have left it out as an option. Perhaps in the future they'll switch things up with how 'breeding' works and have the kids tied to specific characters that aren't all female, but for this first foray into the deal, I came to accept it for what it is.
