if something is wrong with your Club Nintendo account, contact Nintendo and they'll get you squared away. you can call their customer service hotline and they'll get the problem all sorted out for you — and if you're too young to call on your own, get your parents to do so. I'm sure it was just an accident :3

the only 'reality' here is that everyone needs to calm down. go play some games on the console of your choice and stop filling my inbox with reports about doomsday/what-if/'Nintendo has to do (insert thing here) or they'll die!!!!1!!eleventyone' arguing that does not matter in the long run whatsoever.

btw, @cheaptrick: the bit about the investor selling all their Nintendo stock and investing in Zynga should've been your clue that the 'Iwata punches investor' story was faker than a $3 bill.

Yay another thread were Ninty fanboys can rant about how revolutionary everything Nintendo does is~

I know, but nobody really can blame them. Large number of people here are kids still dependent of their parents getting them the Wii U & nothing more. It's hard to see the bigger picture &/or coming out of the box beyond the Wii U when you're heavily invested on it & going multiplatform less than a year is such a huge cost.

can we knock it off with the assumptions about other users' backgrounds? none of that is necessary for this discussion, and it's actually pretty offensive. people are going to like what they like and/or mistakenly parrot rumor as fact regardless of whether they purchase it or their parents do. :/

Very cute. Let's not with the social statements, please, we can all see on the forums what we're all talking about and we don't need yet another discussion regarding the 'core' versus 'casual' audiences.

By the way, if the number of pages is any indication, we may as well shut this place down entirely and open it up solely to users who enjoy trading 3DS Friend Codes.

@BadBunny: No, but i'm glad to see the kitty is sticking around even after the name change :3

@Brooks83: I honestly have no idea. That question has bothered me ever since the first time I saw Alice in Wonderland. I wonder if I'll ever learn the answer :(

@Geonjaha: Why would I want to do that? Though an epileptic not on medication or any kind of treatment program playing video games sounds sort of irresponsible to me on their part, it's their life and if they'd like to hang out with the rest of us, they're welcome to do so. :3

@Magikarp: wtf why does my name come after yours >:[

@Pikminsi: I would agree that it's worth it — just take plenty of breaks. :3

@CrimsonFire13: I don't mind answering your questions at all, and i love the smell of cucumber but i can't stand eating them. So many nice soaps have cucumber smells that now when i smell the cucumber i'm eating, the taste reminds me of soap :(

@Jaz007: Not so much 'powerful' as 'tired'. Some days I feel like a glorified babysitter, y'know?

@Ark_Sin: Last I knew, hot dogs were made of the animal trimmings and bits they couldn't sell as part of other meat products somehow... and they sell things like rocky mountain oysters, sweetbreads, tongue, brains, gizzards, tripe, and liver on their own, man. what else is left? D:

@Happy_Mask: But i like our bathroom :(

@Jaz007: I swear fealty to no giant robot. Godzilla on the other hand...

@Tasuki: Took care of that a few days ago for you, how's it doing? also, I don't have a Wii U yet so I haven't given it a try, and I'm not really a fan of fighting games anyway so there's a good chance i'd suck and get bored quickly. :3

@Musterd: I had no idea, but any fish with that many teeth is ok by me :O

@Happy_Mask, @Tasuki, @HawkeyeWii, @FOREST_RANGER: I'm just going to lump this all into one answer :3

No, I did not see the thread about duplicates before it was deleted by the OP as I was working at the time. That's a part of the reason I'm not really a fan of outright deleting established discussions or threads unless there is a serious rule being broken. I now have no idea what really went down in that thread and am being forced to go on eyewitness accounts, which are never as reliable as the actual conversation, y'know? I wouldn't mind seeing the ability to delete threads being restricted to moderation staff only just so that a user in a bad mood can't go and wreck things for everyone else like that, because part of what i'm hearing is that the discussion was honestly worth listening to. a 'request thread deletion' button would probably do it.

That said, we did receive e-mails from a couple of you about the thread and the ongoing problem that spawned it (locked threads looking bad and possibly cluttering the forums at times), so I ran a couple ideas past Ant that would take care of the situation if he chose to implement them. I do not control Ant, though, and I know he's a busy guy, so please don't expect immediate resolution or anything, but I have done what I can and it's in his hands now. I consider the matter closed until he makes a decision, so please, let's drop the petty bickering and move on. I know how snarky some of you guys can get when you think an idea is silly, and I know how passionate the rest of you are when it comes to ideas you genuinely think will help this place be the best it can possibly be, but it's not worth continuing the negativity when there's nothing any of us can do right now. If you have any further suggestions about the matter, please bring them to us directly, but the argument in this thread is done.

@FOREST_RANGER: I love honeydew melon. mmmm...

@Mickeymac: I still have fingers, don't I???

@turtleurtleurtleurt: I'm not sure. if Chrom was real and wanted to marry me, maybe, but i don't remember seeing Netflix or Hulu in any Fire Emblem game, so catching up on my shows would be problematic while he's out rebuilding the kingdom and whatnot. No computers either, so no internet access... are you trying to get rid of me, turtle? is this revenge for all those times i've tried to eat you? ;___;

Three things, guys:

(a) Attacking other users here is not cool. If you don't like someone, that's fine — we ask that you ignore them, please. Posting about how you think another user is a troll and a jerk and you want them banned is more likely to get you banned. Play nice.

(b) Quit kneejerking whenever someone posts a 'hurr durr collecting dust' joke. If that's their opinion, you're probably not going to change their mind. Let it go and post about what you like instead of zeroing in and focusing on their tired bullcrap if that's what you truly think of their statements in any given thread (and about any given console).

(c) to the OP — if it's game suggestions you're after, please feel free to ask for them in the Wii U Recommendations thread. Enjoy! :3
