I'm pretty sure Pokemon is doing just fine on the console(s) it's already on — it's a solid and proven system seller. X and Y were wonderful, and the dual-screen configuration was a lot of fun for the minigame stuff. I don't see Nintendo going through with something like this when what they've already got works just fine — why fix what isn't broken?

You can't force people to stick around, they (and you) are free to be wherever they please. If you want to be here, be here. If you don't want to be here, don't be here. That's about all there is to it.

This kind of thing isn't new. We see people come and go and come and go all the time, and this isn't the only forum on the internet where it happens. We've also seen groups of users make their own websites and forums to do their own clique-y things, which is also a normal, healthy activity for young internet users. NL itself isn't dead, it's constantly changing. Learn to adapt, make some new friends while the others are away. If you really want to get in touch with them, most of us here have information in our user profiles and/or backloggeries where you can keep in touch, and if they like you enough, perhaps they'll invite you to their private forum.

Guys, i think we're done with the passive aggressive bullcrap against each other. this thread was originally founded as a corollary to the 'NL users you haven't seen lately' thread, it was a quick way to let people know if you were going someplace specific and/or when you'd be back, and that's all.

Veloster, Alex, the bottom line is that we're not here to stomp on people when they're down, and if you don't have anything nice to say, keep it to yourselves. Yes, we all know half of these exits are straight up flounces, and we've been around long enough to have already learned the reality you're spouting, but there are ways to get that all across without being insulting that you guys continually eschew in favor of the insults, and anyway it's better to ignore that behavior in the long run than wallow in it and give them the attention they crave. in short, knock it off, please.

In the same vein, however, the off-topic posts just to beg people to stay will also be deleted. The 'attention' fest is done, guys, and to be honest it's gone on far too long.

To reiterate: this will be the end of the off-topic posting in this thread, we're going back to basics. If you are posting to this thread from now on, it will only be to announce your departure and/or return to posting. if you've got an entire novel about how much you hate it here, keep it to yourself — from now on it's gonna be short and sweet. Anything deemed off-topic by the moderation team will be subject to edit or deletion. This is your warning, any future complaints about this thread will be redirected to this post.

they've done it before with other games — they may have it on the shelves, but they're probably unable to sell it yet. they've got restrictions in place that won't allow stuff to ring in the register until its street date or something iirc.

Adam, you genius barsteward.

To be fair, he was far before Cluigi's time, and we tend not to invoke his name lest he rise again anyway.. He couldn't have been expected to know.

@Adam, you were He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named's nemesis, you were at the front lines during every instance he reared his head amongst the people. There's not many more qualified to tell his story than you, cowboy-bro :3

It was not deleted, it was locked because it was one giant rant about Miiverse and the ensuing conversation was descending into accusations of philandering against one Miiverse admin in particular for some reason. We have never allowed threads for the purpose of bashing people. Again, @Memeboy3, your beef is with Nintendo and their Miiverse admins. Please take it up with them, we can't do anything for you here.

we tend to leave threads like that as they not only serve as an example to others, the OP has access to them still (so they know why their thread was locked/archived). we don't like to outright delete threads unless a major rule has been broken (e.g. the OP had posted hardcore pornography or provided links and advice regarding the best torrent sites on the internet, something like that).

does this answer your question? :3
