What in the ever-loving hell just happened here? If someone asks you to use a given set of pronouns, just do it. You have no idea who or what is on the other end of the screen anyway, so why is it some kind of big fat hairy deal that Gioku is female? For pete's sake you'd think someone just dropped a bomb on your house with the way some of you react to these things.

Besides, i thought we all already knew there are no girls on the internets anyway. What does it matter? Let's stop being nasty to one another and move on, please.

@Gioku, if you experience any more harassment over your gender, let me know. We've never tolerated it before, and we're not about to start now.

so we're graduating from bumping old threads to creating pointless ones? come on now, if you need a scratch-pad to try something in a comment to see if it works, @veloster, that's what the Helpful Tips for Formatting Messages thread is for. It's even stickied at the top of the Help/Problems section for you guys :/

^ i would suggest this idea as well. if you just can't wrap your mind around the idea of being led to marry a female character in a game you already own, there's a good chance it'll sour your experience in RF3 to the point where it wouldn't be worth the purchase.

and for what it's worth, i get your original question and don't think you meant offense in the slightest. i wish there were more games with broader options available so that everyone can immerse themselves as fully as possible. :( I am going to go ahead and lock this thread before any real idiocy comes out of it, though. You've got some solid suggestions to work with, and we wish you the best of luck :3

@navi: rule of thumb on that has always been six months or so. a year, we'd take it on a case-by-case basis, and if the new duplicate has a stronger conversation going or more pages, we may lock the old thread instead of the new. Also, there are a few threads that historically have gone through periods of dormancy but we will always lock/redirect toward, like the 'favorite user' and 'nl users you haven't seen in a while' threads or the xbox and playstation ongoing fan threads in Other Gaming.

The specific issue we're referencing here is users digging back to threads from 2009-2012 for no reason other than to confuse people and/or cause a ruckus. People have been reporting them due to the disruption, so we're taking care of the problem. :3

I gotta ask, is there any way Nintendo Life will have an auto archive system for threads over a year or two old?

We've brought it up with Ant before, so far as i know it's a part of his (already lengthy) list of Things to Do. Necromancy has never really been a high-ranking problem before is all, most users here know better than to trawl the depths of the forums to dredge up old and outdated topics and we've relied heavily in users setting good examples for one another by not doing so. On the rare occasion we had a user who wanted to play the 'lol old topic is old' game, usually they'd get the hint when the threads they've bumped are suddenly inaccessible and their fun is over, they move on to active discussions. We had a few users not getting the hint this time, though, so we're trying to nip the problem before it gets any farther out of hand. Hopefully they'll be more constructive upon their return :3

Anyway, no word on when an auto-archive system will happen, but I'm sure Ant will surprise us with it someday :3

@torotoid64: Not exactly sure off the top of my head what thread you're referring to or how long it's been dormant, but a good rule of thumb would be to please post constructively while you're here. Given the hypothetical idea that you'd be posting in an outdated thread for the sole purpose of laughing at the topic at hand in general... this is not constructive posting and may get you a temp-ban. I'd suggest letting a sleeping thread lie :3

@Morphbug: You are correct, we would either let it go or lock/redirect to a more recent active thread (to avoid the 'no duplicates' rule, and also to get you in touch with people who perhaps are playing the game still :3). As long as we can tell you are genuinely trying to contribute to the topic or to be constructive, we will assume good faith.

i know a few of you @-mentioned me and i never did respond, sorry 'bout that — IRL has been kicking my donkey for srs for the past few months, both IRL jobs have been hitting pretty hard (which is a good thing for me, not complaining about it in the slightest haha). i know i haven't been able to participate in a whole lot of discussions lately (and it probably doesn't help that i still don't have a Wii U so i don't care to participate in most of them lately :3), but i'm still around behind the scenes taking care of moderator-type things when i can. the usual — cleaning up people's potty mouths, taking care of topics posed by people just here to shill their YT channels, banning obvious trolls and letting the more subtle ones slide until they finally cross the line and we can nip 'em, helping out versus spammers, etc. etc. Just because you don't see me doesn't mean i'm not there, and just because you think you've gotten away with something doesn't mean i won't get you eventually. :*

Last time I checked, you didn't create this thread, you aren't an admin, and you don't run this site, so I feel I can continue talking about this until one of those people I listed tells me otherwise. Until then, I would like to have honest discussion about First-person Zelda.

@Shocks1776: Though I wouldn't mind seeing an actual constructive discussion regarding a first-person Zelda-series game (hey, sneaking through the Gerudo jail and popping off guards is fun :3) you've made it quite clear that you're not interested in any sort of 'honest' discussion about anything in this thread, When you're done trolling and flinging insults and are ready to contribute constructively, let me know, but for now i'm afraid it's time out.

Can we please get back to discussing the game, guys? :3

@SkywardLink: i believe you may be thinking of another forum, unless you'd like to point me in the direction of that particular discussion so that i can nuke it from orbit? to the best of my knowledge (and with Google's help), i cannot remember seeing such a discussion take place nor have i been able to find it myself.

The bottom line is that it's a fan theory with no solid basis in canon reality, and the assumption you are choosing to make from the support convo in question (i've seen it too, i know what happened) is not only a serious stretch, it's also vile and offensive. i may as well try to claim that the 'cake' Peach baked for Mario in SM64 was actually a code word between the two for something else entirely for all the truth behind either theory.

117. Posted:

a quick google search is enough to see that Diesel has been going after cybersquatters and counterfeiters lately, this may have just been lumped into the mix by mistake. They have a right to defend their claim to the use of 'diesel' for their line of fashion, and i'm sure the legal teams on both sides will be able to figure out there's no risk of Diesel and DieselStormers being mistaken for one another. Besides, if you want to get technical, the onus would have been on Black Forest's legal team to make sure they were in the clear before choosing that name.

on another note, i doubt anyone here is buying Diesel jeans anyway, so i bet they're reeeally quaking in their boots over the idea of a boycott by us, lol.

anyway, user McFox has been banned until they make things right with users babyguess and Ampersand. @babyguess, sorry i missed it when you tried to @ me back in April (the system only works when the correct username is used!). if he still hasn't given you that eShop code he promised and you'd still like to forward on your evidence, please feel free to get in touch with me via the Contact Form. @Ampersand, thank you for proving that you sent your half of the deal! please let us know if he ever gives you what you were owed.

In the meantime, please, if you were already in the process of working out a deal with him via e-mail, DO NOT do business with user McFox! e-mail is 'mcfoxempire@gmail.com', 3DS FC is 2277-7078-8765, NNID is TheHammerBros, Steam ID is McFox745. This person has already fooled two users here into giving up their codes. Please beware who you trade with, make sure you trust the person on the other end of the trade!

eff Lesnar. Seriously. my perfect Summerslam would involve a Cena vs Reigns match where Reigns won (a nice long hard-fought match where he'd get the crap beat out of him in the process, tiring him out) and then Rollins would cash in that stupid briefcase of his and get the stuffing beat out of him for his efforts. that would make me very happy :3

i knew how that Battle Royale was gonna go just as soon as Miz went under the ropes. it was a pretty good match otherwise, i'd thought Seamus was gonna take it to be honest, and go Heath Slater, lol — proving why he was kept i guess. and that setup with Big E and Kofi was great too, i like this new thing with Kofi and his crazy ways of getting saved from the floor :3

i'm also glad to see the Wyatts losing a bit. builds character. Bray's eye was looking pretty gnarly though... owie D:
