hahaha, ok, i get it.

@GenieMagic: site staff all have shields by their usernames (gold for admins, silver for moderators and reviewers/newswriters). you have nothing to fear from someone without a shield by their name, lol. Wiiloveit was just joking anyway.

@Roopa - as long you promise to not make a mean reply, I'll be honest with you: I never heard of a philosopher, let alone a person, with that name. The only Patrick Star that comes to mind for me is the starfish character from SpongeBob Squarepants. Although, to hear of an actual person with that name is cool.

Dude, no one in their right mind would seriously call Patrick Star a Greek philosopher, and if you were really curious, a quick Google search was enough to prove that line was indeed from Spongebob Squarepants. Roopa is joking. :3

@GenieMagic: The first post in the helpful tips thread lists a few smilies for you (just take out the spaces). Another tip: if ever you're curious about something another user has done in their own post, too, you can always click the 'Quote' link above their comment to see the bare code, which will show you exactly how they did it.

Also, the other discussion was locked because my response was intended to be the end of it -- topics regarding issues of site moderation, especially where editing comments (especially with regard to profanity) comes up, tend to devolve into squabbling and general nastiness. Anyone who wants to continue to discuss the issue of moderators editing comments may take it up with the admins via the Contact form.

@GenieMagic: First of all, welcome to Nintendo Life. :3

Secondly, please note that the community rules (which you probably should look over if you haven't already) clearly state:

Please use common sense and don't post explicit profanity, however we are not strict on the use of swearing but retain the right to remove any posts we deem offensive.

Your posts and posted images are constantly reviewed by the moderating staff, any post or image deemed unsuitable by them will be censored, edited or deleted without prior warning.

If you notice someone else has edited your comments on the forums, chances are that person is a moderator (though the admins have been known to step in as well) just trying to do their job. The admins/people who run this place are trying to keep things suitable for all ages, and they're not fans of profanity in comments or on the forums (and in fact, when i was first brought onto the team, i specifically asked what words they considered 'bad' and was provided an entire laundry list of words to look out for), so when we see it, we'll edit it out.

You won't be in trouble if you slip here and there, it's no big deal (as the rules state, we're not strict about it), but if you start getting free with the curse words, we'll fire off an e-mail and ask you to tone it down. Be warned that editing your edited-out words back into your post(s), however, is a gigantic no-no, and for that you may wind up banned.

Also, you may want to check out these helpful tips for formatting messages -- that thread goes over bbcode stuff for the forums as well as some smileys iirc.

It's similar in that it's the same general style of music, but that's it. the dudes who did Wipe Out don't hold the copyright to all music done in the same style, lol... there's no violation here.

Depends on the game. My Dolphin has different toys and colored dolphins available, and My Zoo is supposed to have a few more animals as DLC.

@The Wii Master: 'pay and play' just means there's DLC for that title (or it will be available in the future). you can play the base game all you like without purchasing added DLC.
