that totally looks odd, especially those pics with the streaks through the screen — what are you doing to it to get that effect? i'd send it off to Nintendo for sure.

I've decided never to make another thread on Nintendolife because no matter how unique you think it is, the mods here will always dig up some ancient, buried thread, link you to it (which you would have never found had they not), seemingly scold you for not digging for hours to find it, then lock you up. No other gaming site I belong to does this really but NL, but whatevz. I do like it here, but posting threads is impossible.

(a) I believe I've already stated that my cut-off point for redirecting to an older thread is about six months from the most recent reply to it. six months is by no means an 'ancient, buried thread'.

(b) I don't recall having scolded anyone solely for having to redirect/lock a topic unless said person is a repeat offender and the original thread was theirs in the first place. we've had a few of those around before who obstinately refuse to use their original threads to continue the discussions and feel the need to create a brand new topic every time a thought so much as flits through their minds, and it gets old, y'know? they usually chill out and get the point after a while, though :3

(c) we have never 'locked up' or banned a user solely for creating repeat topics, accidentally or no.

(d) the only evidence of a locked topic of yours that i can find, badmouthsadmouth/Mully, was this one here — if there were more, you've long since deleted them, as Google isn't picking them up at all. either way, that particular lock comes from a long-standing order straight from the head honchos where any Nintendo Download threads get locked and redirected to the mainsite articles in question. basically, they'd rather see those discussions happening on the main site than on the forums. When it happens, we leave the threads standing until the NL articles are up, and then we lock/redirect, no big deal.

also, the reason you probably see this happening more here than at any of the other forums you visit is because those other forums all have a merge function, i'll bet. remember that we don't (yet), so please bear with us just a little longer until Ant implements the forum upgrade. :3

I used to have an old Mercury Grand Marquis with window motors that didn't work, so half the time at least one of the windows would be impossible for me to raise or lower fully... it was broken into a few times. i never kept anything important in it, though, because i knew it was a risk, so they never stole anything. the only thing that pissed me off was twice when it happened they left the glove box open, which in that model car has a light inside, so it ran down the battery and made the car kinda hard to start in the morning afterward :/
that car was a total POS, but damn did i love it :(

I remember looking up this error a while back for someone else, and the only solution was to call Nintendo and set up a repair order. I wouldn't bother volunteering any information, just tell 'em your Wii's not working and what it's doing and leave it at that.

if you're that worried that they won't fix it, there are other places that'll do repair work on consoles, but idk how much they'll charge and i can't vouch for their quality of service... not to mention there's no telling whether your wi-fi save data will survive.

either way, you seem to have a decent handle on the options available to you, and we need to get off the topic of softmodding and its quirks, so I'm gonna go ahead and lock this one. good luck to you!
