This was already brought up in the Have Your Say thread a while back. Ant has been made well aware of our desire for a spoiler tag, and hopefully we'll see some of the features we all brought up in that thread eventually (if not soon?). :3

@LuWiiGi: that would only be a problem if NL had varying levels of privacy. NL is completely open to the public, however, so whoever wants to look up what you're doing would be able to do so without this suggested feature. It just makes things easier this way for people to keep track of whoever they want to keep track of, is all.

what I'm talking about is the little indicator telling everyone that you're currently online -- i'm just not a fan of people knowing exactly when I am and am not online is all, and I'd like to be able to opt out of that part of the feature. i'm cool with people seeing where i've been posting lately, though -- in fact, i suggested a similar feature in the Have Your Say thread a while back. :3

@dap594: there is the search bar up at the upper left-hand corner of NL that will pull up forum topics, but it's not the most reliable thing in the world because it also pulls up mainsite stuff. i usually find stuff via Google using 'site:nintendolife.com/forums (insert what i'm searching for here)'.

that said, you'll note that I didn't know that topic was actually about a sequel either -- another user was kind enough to point it out for us, so that we could keep all the discussion as together as possible (believe me, if merging threads were possible, we would be doing it a lot more often than just locking them). you'll also note that under normal circumstances, you are not in trouble for posting a duplicate thread on the forums -- we realize that the search function isn't all that great at the moment, so that's why we/i do my best to always find the original or current duplicate thread before locking the new ones.

Do you have another wiimote to try? Have you tried changing out the batteries in your current wiimote?

If nothing has worked, I'd try the candle trick next. Unplug the sensor bar from the wii, set a pair of burning candles about as far apart as your sensor bar is wide in front of your TV, and then try re-calibrating the sensor bar. if that doesn't work, call Nintendo's support hotline, because I'm out of ideas, hahaha. :3

@Waltz: and if they don't have a computer with internet access, an iphone, a blackberry, or a droid? If I want someone to read a book, I'd rather let them borrow it right then and there as opposed to having to wait a month until they can afford to have their cable/internet service turned back on. not to mention the fact that I don't want to get mugged for walking down the street with a Kindle or pestered by people interested in it because it's new to them; i'd rather be unobtrusive with a plain old book. I also don't want to be limited in only allowing five people to borrow my books -- i've got a lot of friends, and back at my old workplace even we'd all pass books around to one another, maybe twenty people in the same group sharing one or two books a piece between us all. it just wouldn't be feasible with what you're describing.

honestly, you're not going to convince me that digital is better in this case, lol. if it works, why fix it? :3

wait, are you saying both bars are still stacked on top of one another? or are both sensor bars still facing the wiimote as you attempt to use it? try unplugging the one for the wii that is currently not in use and see what happens.

The experience is nicer, in my opinion.

It's also nicer to be able to share your books with friends as opposed to telling them to check it out from the library or buy it themselves, because i know i'm not too keen on loaning out an expensive piece of technology to anyone, lol. also, when all your books are on it, if someone else is using it you're kinda eff'd if you wanna read something, y'know. :/

two sensor bars being set up near one another shouldn't permanently damage one another, I don't think. Have you made absolutely sure that there's nothing else electronical near the sensor bar (cell phones, speakers, a radio, etc.)? Did you accidentally set up your sensor bar for the wrong position (does it think it's on top of the TV when it's actually below it, or vice versa)? is there anything between your wiimote and the sensor bar that could be blocking the infrared signal (cups set up on a table, etc.)? I would check all of these possible problems and try to recalibrate the sensor bar again.

ATTENTION PLZ KTHX

This game has been out for what, two days at the most? Please be careful not to spoil the game for everyone else. We don't have spoiler tags (yet?), but at the very least follow the example set by other users and be sure to mark your spoilers as such (a big 'SPOILER WARNING' just before you start revealing important plot devices/events works wonders). That way, people who haven't beaten it yet can skip your comments if they choose, and people who have can read away at their leisure.

Thank you for your cooperation :3
