To explain regarding facepalm images, this has indeed been a thing since the Era of James. Facepalm macros were rampant at the time, they do nothing to add to a conversation between users except to point another out as a fool (which yours in context would have attempted to do) and if that's all you have to say to someone, we'd prefer if you kept it to yourself until you have something more constructive to say. We'd prefer to see users perhaps explain why they feel an idea is bad or why someone else is wrong from their perspective instead. I hope that makes sense! :3

As for the typo edits, you are absolutely in the right to point that out and we have discussed it internally. Thank you for the feedback, and we appreciate your patience as everyone settles into their new roles :3

I am part of the gaming community and deserve to share the success in making money off amiibos without being mocked. It makes no sense for this all to be happening unless people are jealous.

No, at this point you're just stirring the pot. When you've got something constructive to dhare with the community other than 'ha ha I own all the amiibo figures in the world and you can't get mad about it', let us know.

Everyone else, please continue your conversation as it had been before. Thank you!

Appalling and vile. An absolute abomination. Horrifyingly repulsive. How dare they.

Seriously though, it isn't like you absolutely have to use the white tanooki suit, correct?

Nailed it in the second comment. Don't like it? Don't use it, but if you guys want to start insulting one another over it (not you, Turnip!), please find something else to discuss. Thanks!

Sometimes Nintendo runs promotions for free games if you register certain game codes via your Club Nintendo account, like a buy-one or buy-two-get-one deal. idk if TL would be one of the offered games (or even if/when Nintendo will run such a promotion again), but that would probably be the only way to score a free copy — other than that, asking parents/family members or saving money from your allowance (i'm assuming you're a minor since you haven't mentioned setting aside your own money here) would be your options for purchasing another copy. Best of luck to you!

i ban them. that part's usually over quickly enough, cut and dry.

but then i get to deal with fallout from users who thought they should've been banned ever since they signed up, users who felt they didn't deserve to be banned at all, users complaining about the number of spambots making it to the forums, users complaining that their freedom of speech has been infringed upon by our having deleted equally nasty responses to whatever the troll happened to post, users who want to post passive-aggressive comments about how the forums and site are moderated, and then maybe the troll themselves will send us something to try and Eddie Haskell their way out of their well-earned ban. or they may choose to wax loquacious about how many times they slept with my mother and/or what bruises they would inflict upon my person if they ever met me IRL.

that's usually how troll activity goes down around here IME.

AuthorRe: Nintendo fanbase intolerant to criticism?
theblackdragonAdmin

I apologize if this sounds harsh but please understand that i mean this with the utmost sincerity:

All I'm getting from this is that no one listened to you and your amazing, never-been-brought-up-before ideas and you're trying to rationalize how that possibly could've happened. No one wants to hear criticism about something they love. This is true for every community, whether it be about TV shows, books, games, movies, science, politics, religion, you name it. I'm not saying you shouldn't have said what you said, but please set aside any thoughts of being a special snowflake and if you're being an armchair analyst or expert, own it and move on. It's not an insult, it's an accurate descriptor. Bringing fuel with you like this from one community to another does nothing to further your cause, whatever it may be.

If you want to participate and discuss, by all means do so! just be ready for when someone disagrees, and there will always be someone disagreeing on the internet :3

Please refrain from doing so in the future. If you don't have it in you to play nicely with others, just report a rule-breaking post and be done with it. Thanks in advance!
