because we've got a sudden influx of new players...

PLEASE LISTEN UP! BASIC ETIQUETTE!

When joining a community, DON'T immediately start the raceespecially if people are sending the 'Let's wait for more players' message. Remember, the more people you're racing with, the more fun you'll have! It'll autostart on its own after a minute or two, so please have the courtesy to wait for others!

Also, anyone caught using either of the Wuhu glitches to get a cheap win in the Nintendo Life communities WILL be publicly named and shamed. No one wants to race with a cheater, so just enjoy the tracks for what they are — they're great when everyone plays fairly! :)

If you can't use the stylus to select English, your touchscreen could be a dud — IIRC the setup process is done entirely with the stylus, no buttons. Turn the system off again, and then hold L, R. and X down while powering it on — that'll jump you straight to the calibration screen. If you can't calibrate the system, that's it... Nintendo's FAQ recommends starting a repair order.

If the store you bought it from is open today, I'd suggest returning it and swapping for a new one if possible — hopefully xmas can be salvaged for your son! If not, or if you don't want to return it to the store (e.g. if they're out of the bundle you purchased and can't replace it with a new one), as everyone else has already mentioned, calling Nintendo tomorrow for a repair will be in order.

Could the running out of ink thing be because the size of the file is getting too big? I've received a few drawings where people scribbled all over a big area filling it in. (I'm gonna go give it a try and see what happens.)

yeah, pix explained it here. i'm one of those that scribbles to fill things in sometimes or to thicken/add emphasis to lines, so i have to be careful not to run out all the time D:

I have yet to see any sort of "You've ran out of ink" message. Maybe I just flew by it through the first hundred or so message I got on day one? So it sounds like you guys that are getting it must need to play more.

It depends on your style of drawing. If I'm getting detailed, I'll wind up using much more ink than if i'm just doodling or actually writing something quickly. You'll notice the ink meter will start to blink as you get close to the end and it makes a little beeping or chiming noise as you draw, and then finally it'll go red and won't allow you to draw anymore. trust me, i've sent a buttload of swapnotes and haven't unlocked anything in the way of more ink yet, so if you haven't seen it happen yet, perhaps you need to play more :3

@Skywake: You know those notes from Nikki that you gradually receive? You get them after sending notes to people, and each one explains a new feature that's been unlocked for you. Purchasing new stationery with Play Coins is one of them. Get to drawing! :3

@R-L-A-George: it would be just as bad, and then we'd have two threads for the same general thing. The only thing that is going to cure the clutter is some sort of messaging system. Hopefully we'll have something with the eventual site revamp, but until then, please leave it be.

@R-L-A-George: people were flooding this thread with code-swap messages a few pages back, though, however innocently it started. I've had to clean this thread out a couple times already in order to help people continue to share actual impressions and thoughts about Swapnote amongst the 'added you, now add me!!1' messages. I'm sorry, but if it hadn't already become a problem, I wouldn't be directing people toward the appropriate thread. :/

I was kinda wondering if extra ink was some sort of future unlock — they locked up other features before only to have Nikki string us along. I wouldn't mind seeing colored ink in the future. that's definitely something i'd be inclined to pay for with Play Coins, lol :3

on-topic, the ink limit is definitely BS. :/
