@Mickeymac: Admins can delete accounts. We only do so on rare occasions, though, because it's very messy behind the scenes. We prefer to deactivate accounts where users have posted comments/topics on the forums and/or main site, though users with no posted content we generally have no problems deleting outright.

@kato: I'm afraid using my likeness won't come cheap. Don't worry, though, I accept payments in bacon :3 as for 'best bromance support dialogue', I've always been partial to rivals, so Vaike and Chrom are good fun — though Frederick and Chrom is quite amusing :3

@Tasuki: Thank you, Emmy made it for me. By the way, have you checked your e-mail recently? :3

@k8sMum: They haven't — unfortunately, we're only human, so we do miss some here and there (though we get 'em as soon as they're reported, or as soon as we stumble across them). I've been in contact with Ant about an automatic filter, but i don't know what the progress on that is or whether or not he'll actually implement it eventually, but I haven't lost hope yet. By the way, you're another one who needs to check their e-mail if you haven't recently :3

@True_Hero: the idea behind the gentlemen cat is a long story, really... it started with my use of ':3', which people weren't always sure about when i first signed up here. I'd been trying to use the monkeys from Yoshi's Island to illustrate that it was a mischevious sort of smile, but not everyone remembered them, so then i started likening it to a cat... and then I got a Backloggery and they rolled out the :gentlemen: emoticon which I quite enjoy using, and finally i forget if it was Vaynard or JayArr (it might've been Vay) who posted an image of a 'gentlemen cat' to my BL because they thought it was funny, and that was it. Emmy made my current avatar for me :3

@Happy_Mask: Just to reiterate, Emmy made my current avatar :3

@Konata: er... ok?

@MickMick: Unfortunately it wasn't serving to stop the problem, and whether or not Disney is racist is a pretty hot-button issue when it comes to his fans, plus iirc people had been posting examples to that thread, which wasn't cool. At that point I chose to edit that portion of the discussion out entirely, as it didn't belong here anyway. Don't worry, if you'd really been in trouble over it i would've contacted you to let you know or said something specific in-thread :3

@Erica_Hartmann: Hopefully you're not sick anymore, but sick people shouldn't eat junk food :(

@k8sMum: only if i get one too D:

@0SP_ZELDAIII: I believe I answered this question before, but it's this guy here :3

@CrimsonFire13: I'm very interested in it, but i may wait for reviews. I'm still not sure, to be honest :3

@RikuzeYre: Which games to purchase are totally on you, but the ones I'd recommend picking up would probably be SMRPG and FFIV, at least (whether or not you pick up FFIV: The After Years is up to you, but definitely at least IV :3)

@Whirlpool: Sure, not gonna bother lying about white lies or anything. We all gloss things over in order to get through a day smoothly. It's no big deal :3

@Gameday: 'sup mang, not bad. what's good with you? :3

@Jaz007: "Relax. You'll live longer." As for my therapist, probably LJM. It'd be fun to watch him spiral into some sort of malpractice lawsuit first-hand (do therapists even fall under 'malpractice'? haha~)

@OptometristLime: Done, but i had to remove the underscore because it was one letter too long that way :3

@HawkeyeWii: I'm afraid i haven't seen any of the Iron Man movies D:

@Mickeymac: I have indeed — I've been a fan of W ever since it first aired on Toonami back in the day, i used to have 0083 on tape, and i've seen a little bit of the original '79 series.

@Crazybrain1: I'm afraid I don't, because my husband is allergic.

@Ark_Sin: For the fourth time, Emmy.

@SomeBitTripFan: We've got a bit over 40,000 users in our database at this time. As for your avatar, I'm afraid it will be supplanted along with all the others. Sorry, can't go playing favorites or anything :3

@Whirlpool: I've got a few friended on FB and we all talk to each other about site-related stuff via e-mail, but that's about as far as we go, really. I've never met any other members of staff in person if that's what you're asking, but if you're just wondering whether i know who they are, then yes. :3

@lz: it's probably because i'm a dragon. people tend to look down on us reptilian types :(

@Hysterical: sure, why not~

@CapnPancakes: I'm perfectly happy with my accent as it is now, really :3

@CaptainSquid: Tiger attacks. I'll have you know I haven't been attacked by a tiger in the entire time I've had this thing, so it works pretty good i think :3

@Jaz007: I do, I just don't have time (and available funds) to devote to it the way i did back when i was younger.

@Ark_Sin: ... no thanks...

@Happy_Mask: I'll probably pick it up eventually. i just don't really have the time to sit around in front of a TV playing video games, that's why I'm more interested in my 3DS and stuff :3

@Jaz007: It really depends on the week... i can say that this past week I banned 29 user accounts total. However, of that number, 6 were spammers and 2 were potential spammers, 9 were trolls who most likely will not be coming back, 2 were genuine temp-bans because the users in question got out of hand, 9 were accounts created for the purpose of evading a ban, and 1 was a duplicate account created by a user in good standing. take that as you will :3

I think it's of the "this forum is my new blog" variety. The op is not asking for any kind of input.

I'm in agreement. Please, kloudd, Nintendo Life is not your personal blog. You're more than welcome to start one and then post a link via your user signature, however — that way you could showcase your writing without creating topics that serve merely to confuse our users. Thanks in advance! :3

The picture of the Wii U and the 3DS probably illustrates that the card may be used in either console. You'll want to have a separate card for each console, that way you won't have to worry about available space and which console it may or may not have been left in at any given point in time. Games purchased for the VC in one eShop will not be transferable to the other system via SD card or any other means as of this point in time, i'm afraid.

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 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. :/
