Is there a list of which kids can get married and which will turn out to be 'life companions' anywhere? I'd like to plan out their marriages and stuff instead of just going in blind and winding up with some left out of the fun, lol.

@SCAR392: What are you talking about? Just because that guy who built the exact same thing in his basement on accident did it without having ever seen another patent, that doesn't mean he can release it to the public without expecting to be sued. Nintendo's patent-checking people likely made a mistake in interpreting this guy's patent and thought their tech was different enough to not fall under this guy's patent is all, and the court has (at this time) determined they were wrong. It happens. Again, this is what the appeals process is for.

@Tasuki: You can't counter-sue if you're ruled to be guilty. I know most of us here love Nintendo and want very much for them to be always in the right, but if something was indeed accidentally infringed upon, I'd rather they make it right with the patent-holder than waffle through a bunch of court BS until they're pinned to a wall and forced to pay out. it's the right thing to do.

@LordJumpMad: lz, no question. Corbs used to ban him on a nightly basis, lol, just for the heck of it.

@Kylo: Not really. When I was little, I used to collect pig stuff — figurines, knick-knacks, necklaces and jewelry, etc. Nowadays though, about the only thing i collect is games I intend to play eventually — and drawings piled up all over my desk at work, haha :3

if it works the same as it did for FE:A, any SpotPass stuff or DLC should save to 'extra data' on the SD card, not in the game code or on a cartridge. When you pop in a brand new cartridge, it should show that you have the ability to play the puzzles and just haven't done so yet, and if you try to take your cartridge and play any DLC or SpotPass stuff on another console, that DLC/SpotPass stuff should be locked on the original console you downloaded it onto, so it won't be there on the new one. I'm not sure about things that have already been loaded into your save-file, though (e.g. if you used a SpotPass map and it put the battle point onto your FE:A game already), though, because I haven't experimented with it yet.

Anyway, that's if it works the same as FE:A, though — you may want to ask Nintendo about it just to be absolutely sure.

@Lan: my dad was a truck driver.

@lz: go to a fanboy convention? sure, why not? not only would i be getting paid, i'd be getting paid to laugh at fanboys :3

@Machamp_King: Falcon, please! They're beautiful birds :3

@Whirlpool: The internet is a tricky, and it's not like i go out of my way to broadcast the fact that i'm female to everyone, so no, it doesn't bother me when people make the assumption that i'm male. mistakes happen, it's not the end of the world. it does kinda amuse me when people get super-butthurt about it on my behalf, though, like i'm gonna go on a banning spree over it :3

@RogueBologna: What's a good question to ask me? idk, i'd guess that one's as good as any, lol.

@deliciousturtle: I'm sorry, you'll need to actually ask me a question in order for me to answer you about it~

@Jaz007: How many threads have I locked? I honestly have no idea, and there's no real way for me to pull up that information. However, a google search for 'theblackdragon' and 'sorry, this topic has been locked' pulls up a little over 3,000 hits (i'd imagine at least a third of those are duplicate hits for the same thread, multiple pages and all that) so take it as you will. As for how many times I personally have banned someone, again that's not information I can access easily either, I'd have to hand-count all the bans that have happened since moderators were given the ability to ban people (when i was first brought on as a moderator we had to e-mail an admin and have them do it). I can say that my first ban was in November of '09, there were about 211 bans that happened before i banned anyone, most of the bans we've had since have been done by myself, and we're currently sitting at a little over 2,000 banned usernames in our database (more than a few of those are evaders or attempted evaders, though, and a few are self-bans).

@Henry_Mask: Will I attempt a classic run of FE:A? I might, we'll have to see how i feel after getting through all the supports :3

@sir_Anthony: Why do I still use my xmas avatar? Because i'm too lazy to change it back.

@Ark_Sin: I will not be doing the Harlem Shake, sorry.

@TysonOfTime: Gangrel would make a great LJM, wouldn't he? though i'm not sure what use he'd get out of a Levin Sword, last i knew LJM's magic stat was pretty low >:3

@Jaz007: There are currently just over 40,000 users in our database in all. As for how many have avatars, i have no way of looking up that information, i'm afraid.

@Ark_Sin: er... i'm afraid i'm no woodchuck psychologist...

@Onikato: haha, that's a pretty good one. needs moar bacon though >:3

@playstationman: i don't really feel i've played enough GC games to have an actual favorite D:

@Konata: nope, sorry! i have no idea what Duck Dynasty is, but then i only have Hulu+ and Netflix, no cable. :3

@Ark_Sin: Doctor Who? No thanks. Currently i'm into Red Dwarf, though, if it helps :3

@JusticeColde: if i had a CD suddenly start skipping, i'd probably tap the player and get it to move on. :3

@Happy_Mask: three. i try to cut them down to three nested quotes whenever someone reports a comment for over-quoting.

@lz: pancake pizzas... probably because they sound gross :x

@CrimsonFire13: I haven't had the chance to watch Adventure Time yet, but I eagerly await its arrival upon Netflix or Hulu+ so i can see what all the fuss is about :3

@KodyWB-98: I enjoyed the first issue of NF very much. I still need to subscribe, I should do that soon :O

@Jaz007: My favorite non-gaming activity is probably drawing or reading.

@Ark_Sin: I have no idea what this 'chubby bunny' thing is, and i doubt i want to know, so 'no'. :3

@Jaz007: My favorite Nintendo franchise would have to be Mario, if only for SMRPG.

@CrimsonFire13: I have no real set schedule regarding how often I answer these questions — just whenever i get a pile of 'em i guess. Or whenever I'm not feeling especially lazy or too tired. :3

@Happy_Mask: My favorite FE:A weapon is probably Nosferatu, just because it kicks so much butt around the time Tharja shows up. Any glass weapon in Donny's hands is also good times :3

@Jaz007: No, I've never ducktaped someone to a wall.

@Ark_Sin: I have no idea what 'the flop' is.

@ogo79: i'd take Mario, Peach, Bowser, Toad, and Luigi. Everyone would be so surprised/horrified/weirded-out to see them all in person and in real life and all that i'd have a clear shot at the dessert table. :3

@Metal_Sonic: I'm a top-ranked channel surfer. :3

New as in to this thread? Because you've been here since before I've joined a little over a year ago, and I wouldn't consider that new. Also staff members can get banned? :o I'm genuinely confused...

for heaven's sake, i was joking around. i'm not really a fan of users jumping to the 'zomg you're gonna get banned for (whatever was done)' conclusion (let us do the moderating, thanks! :3) so i posted the 'really? :O' comment, and then TheConsonant apparently took me seriously, so i continued the facade. lighten up, take lz's example :3

I think that's a bit of a stretch, I'm not really familiar with the rules here but I doubt posting pics of women in bikinis, that aren't even that revealing, would get banned. Maybe if they created a topic debating on who was hotter or perhaps if all a topic became was posting pics of bikini clad women; but then it would be more for spamming than anything.

Please, do all the research you can before making a decision, YouTube videos, reviews on other sites (it's why we link to Metacritic, guys!), ask your friends, ask everyone in the usual 'impressions' threads that pop up, etc. and so forth.

i like how you say this as if this guy is the first person in the history of ever to have claimed that Pachter is a fool and shouldn't be listened to for whatever reason(s), backed up by solid evidence or not. if he's about to go after this person on our humble forums, he'd better be going after every single other person making the same claims on other sites that discuss his crystal-ball predictions.
