@FluttershyGuy: I get the 'it's just LJM being LJM' mentality, and I do generally encourage people to not take him seriously or ignore him outright, but the problem is that he (and those accompanying him) went way too far last time. They proved beyond the shadow of a doubt that they couldn't be trusted to behave in this thread, and so I put my foot down with them rather emphatically... and then I came into a giant mess here yet again. I'm over it., and hopefully now he knows I'm serious. As for deleting the messes (as opposed to letting them stand), over the years it's proven the most reliable way to keep people from swooping in months later, fists flying and doing their damndest to stir up old, long-forgotten crap.

People on both sides of the issue have been acting like fools lately, and it's got to stop. I will start handing out bans before I have to clean up another nearly three pages' worth of posts for a third time. You have all been warned: Let us know if you think something's going wrong with the Report button, please, and we'll be glad to look into it for you.

That said, I am not interested in continuing to derail this thread — that's what I set out to stop, after all! If anyone wants to continue this portion of the discussion, I invite you to use the Contact Form to get in touch with us directly — any further off-topic posts will be deleted edited to say 'PONIES PONIES PONIES~'. Thank you, and please, get back to ponies D:

@Tare: There's a difference between reporting one post and reporting every single post on a page. All it took was one person to point out the problem, and if multiple people point out the same problem, who cares so long as it gets taken care of?

I sent an e-mail to the staff and I got a similar response about it being in good fun.

I have no such e-mail in my inbox. edit: wait i figured it out~ i think at that point what was happening was someone was in the process of going down the line reporting every single post from a non-regular posting pony macros and the like to this thread, the main of which was a known brony who had just wanted to share what he'd found in the thread. it's different when one of you guys messes around opposed to a complete outsider; i do have to take that into account. as much as some of y'all want this thread to be all sweetness and light, there's an edgier side to some of the MLP fun, and other fans of the show have as much right to post in this thread as you guys. :/

LISTEN UP, BRONIES

I only just found out about what went down before now. not last night when it happened, not this morning when i woke up. now. and I"m pissed off.

I am going to start banning the people who choose to whine and aid in the derailment of this thread (and accuse me of not doing my job — i'm looking squarely at you, MasterGraveheart) as opposed to reporting the comment(s) in question. You guys may consider this thread a matter of the gravest importance, but it is physically impossible for me to give less of a crap about this show, and so I generally stay out of it until I receive a report letting me know I need to take a look. ZeroX, you are the only person who hit that Report button, and for that I thank you.

when someone comes in here to poke fun and troll the place up, JUST REPORT THEM AND MOVE ON WITH THE DISCUSSION. Don't sit there piddling about 'parasprites' taking over the thread, don't whine and cry about poor misunderstood bronies, don't talk about how many trolls you've ignored and how you're ignoring them now too (because newsflash, you're not ignoring them if you're still talking about them, and all you're doing is giving me more to delete/edit out, ffs!!!) and for god's sake don't assume that I've 'chosen a side', either for or against anyone here. My job is to keep these forums running smoothly, and for that to happen, I need you people to quit sitting on your hands whenever someone comes in here and trolls the place up, fake or otherwise.

USE THE REPORT BUTTON. IT IS THERE FOR A REASON.
we now return you to your regularly scheduled ponyfest. as you were, people~

Why does it always have to be this way: because the game "X" is great, game "Y" sucks. Seriously, SS, OOT and TP are all great games, and just because i enjoyed OOT the most, i see no reason to bash those other games like they were the worst thing in the history of videogames.

this. apparently we can't have these discussions here without getting personal, so i'm shutting this down. go play something, guys, and keep the snark to yourselves.

@Hugo: it's not really hints, it's the memorization that's bothering me because the the stages go bam-bam-bam, one after the other, and they're so short ... blink and you've missed the cue. and then when you run out of lives, you go back to the beginning of the level and have to do it all over again. i'll get it whenever i muster the energy to go back to it, but this game reminds me more of Dragon's Keep than Tomena Sanner, and unfortunately I was not a fan of Dragon's Keep. sorry D:

@SezeMakto: I e-mailed Nintendo to ask them whether the download codes had a set expiration date, and this is their reply:

Alain Dao wrote:

Thanks for contacting us. The download code that you are provided with for a Virtual Reward does not have a set expiration date. However, you are subject to the terms and conditions outlined in the End User Licensing Agreement (EULA) to which you agreed when you connected online with your systems. I've provided a direct link to the EULA for the Wii console below (please see Chapter VI: Other; Article 10: Change, Suspension or Discontinuance of Wii Network Service):

http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/privacyEUL...

While I'm confident that we won't be ending the Wii Shop or Nintendo eShop service anytime soon, I still recommend that you redeem the download code as soon as possible.

I hope this clarifies everything for you.

the section of the EULA to which he refers reads as follows:

Article 10: Change, Suspension or Discontinuance of Wii Network Service
We may change, suspend, or discontinue the Wii Network Service, or any feature or aspect of the Wii Network Service, at any time, with or without notice to you, and without liability to us. This includes, but is not limited to, the availability of all or any portion of the Wii Network Service, Content, Products, Points, and the number of Points required to redeem particular Content or Products.

so we've learned three things altogether:

(A) No, the Download Codes do not have a set expiration date... yet?
(B) Nintendo can change the availability of and access to anything with regards to the Wii Shop and its content or products at any time without giving you any sort of prior notice. Therefore, it's best to redeem your code(s) as soon as possible.
(C) The only way to get a straight answer about this kind of thing is to contact Nintendo directly. :3

on the rare occasion someone stops by our house, I generally smile, nod, accept their pamphlet(s), and then take the first opportunity I can to bow out of the conversation. they're just doing what they think is right, and they know they're not going to convert everybody they wake out of a sound sleep. i don't think there's any sense being a smart-aleck about it or wasting their time with debate, and slamming the door on anyone is a jerk move of the highest degree IMO.

quick heads-up guys, Ant recently put through some more behind-the-scenes changes, and he wound up modifying a couple more of the text shortcuts we've been used to for a while. ~subscript~ and ^superscript^ have now gone the way of the -strikeout-.

[sub]this[/sub]

gives you subscript,

[sup]and this[/sup]

gives you superscript.

the asterisks for bold, underscores for italics, and double-equals signs for

big text

still seem to be working, however. :3
