@k8sMum: it's no big, just be very aware of who you're dealing with and make sure you trust them before entering into a financial transaction. idk about sending cash through the mail, though — if i were you i'd go the PayPal route just to make sure you actually receive your requested funds :3

@Mac: after a bit of trial and error (getting through Chapter 4 was a pain in the a**), i'm up to Chapter 8 now. the characters are pretty interesting, but having to focus on only one or two out of the bunch, i'd imagine i'll learn more about the other guys in subsequent playthroughs. this time around i focused on the commander of the group you're hanging out with, the Shinsengumi. the game kinda goes through the 'introduction' phase via the prologue and Ch.1, which is why I said it started to pick up in Ch.2 — that's when something happens to put the focus back onto the protagonist a little, and after that the guys start to interact with her a bit more personally, giving you the chance to make more choices involving them. i'm kinda wishing the protagonist was stronger, more of a take-charge sort of woman (this wishy-washy passive stuff doesn't really do it for me, even though i understand why it is that way); i'm finding myself wanting to know more about her than everyone else, because she's got a buttload of potential that hasn't been tapped yet. maybe if i made different choices, more of her personality would come forth, so i'll definitely be giving this a few more run-throughs once i've gotten this guy's ending :3

it's a pretty engrossing story... kinda starting to wonder how long this game is.

@ClaytonLuigi: Try daily. it's not usually the regular users you see around you getting banned, though. we do have a few persistent ban evaders who tend to pop up from time to time, and with all the new users coming in around the holidays and E3 those times can be a bit hectic as well. we try to be as fair as possible with newbies, but if you join NL and all you want to do is cause a ruckus or be a jerk to everyone, we tend to show you the door rather quickly :3

we also have the occasional user who decides they'd like their own account banned for whatever reason (leaving the site forever, having trouble in school and need to cut out any distractions, etc). we re-activate their accounts for them once they get back in touch with us, though; it happens all the time. :3

most of our bans are spammers, though. We've got a few tricks up our sleeves that help us to keep those at bay, but a few still get past those filters and need to be taken out manually. they generally come in waves, though; we'll have none for weeks and then all of a sudden they'll pop up with a new trick and we'll get hammered for a few days. no big.

guys, please, the reasons behind bans are not up for public discussion, as per the Rules. TokyoRed was banned for breaking the rules. FLYNN-LIVES was a user who'd been banned under another username already, his original account was also banned for breaking the rules (separate incident from TokyoRed). We had been in contact with each of them before they were banned, they knew what not to do and still chose to do these things, even though they had been warned it could lead to bannination.

Please be assured that If we have not been in touch with you about anything and warned you that you may be banned for persisting in (insert behavior here), you're good to go unless you do something drastically against the rules (and even then we'd probably want to figure out what happened before deciding whether to make the ban temporary or not).

As for JadeGirl, she's not banned, idk where she is — she and TokyoRed used to hang out off and on anyway, so I'm sure she'll turn up again sometime down the line (probably when all the summer movies start to hit, lol).

why not try calling them instead of waiting for an e-mail? they've got a phone number listed on this page for support. if anyone can walk you through the process of either fixing your 3DS somehow or having a repair order put in, it's Nintendo's own support team :3

I know you're in EU, but it's ridiculously hard to find concrete information regarding error codes on the NoE site for some reason. this is what the NA site has to say about that error. Looks like if turning it off and on again hasn't worked, getting in touch with Nintendo proper is your only hope.

@Mac: yeah, that's why i picked it up — it sounded interesting, and the reviews i'd read made it sound great. i can't really say that they're wrong yet, either; the game seems to go out of its way to help you make your way back to branch points in the story when you get a Game Over, you've got an Encyclopedia to help you with new or unfamiliar terms, you can quick-save and load said quick-save at any time (provided you're in the middle of a game, not at the 'press start' screen), and you can even rewind the story (to an extent) if you forget what you were doing (e.g. fall asleep while playing, that's always my problem with VN games) or if you want to go back to a decision point real quick to see if something else gets you a better result. the only fault so far is with the story, which as I said starts off pretty slow but picks up with a quickness in Chapter 2.

btw, you said specifically that you wanted to talk about it, so was there something in particular you wanted to know?

I've got Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom. It starts off a bit slow IMO — you'll learn a lot about various Japanese terms and politics of the era — but it just started picking up here in Chapter 2. It's definitely an otome game, though — there's meters you can check for your 'romance' level with the guys in the game depending on the choices you're making. if the idea of romancing a dude bothers you, try another game :3
