@Sean007s: i don't know what's gotten into you, but it is not your place to decide whether or not a thread is 'stupid'. the concept of trophies being spoilers or not and player reaction to such (as in 'is this normal, am i overreacting, or am i right to feel irritated that now i know what to expect next') has not been brought up within the past year in a thread all its own, not that i can recall anyway, and it deserves a chance to be explored. If you have a problem with this thread, there's plenty of other threads here on the Nintendo Life forums for you to choose from.

In short, if all you want to do is keep taking out your own irritation on the OP, do yourself a favor and don't.

@Sean007s: take it easy -- we don't know how long the OP has been playing games with trophies/achievements for or anything. he bought the game, was playing it, and accidentally wound up spoiled for what comes next by checking out the trophies. thus, he's asking if it's normal. there's no need to ridicule him over a lack of information... he'll know what to expect next time. there's no need to turn this into a scene.

@Sean007s: everyone else is discussing things in terms of developer laziness -- the only one bringing up 'losers' here is you, man. if you want to collect trophies, good for you.

Me, i'm kinda mixed on the topic -- on one hand, it's fun to try and unlock things on my own, not going by descriptions or clues or anything, if i know there's things available to unlock. on the other hand, if i'm only missing like a handful of things and i feel i've gone out of my way to try everything i possibly can, it's nice to know exactly what i need to do to fully complete the game. i generally don't look at the trophies until i've beaten the first playthrough just in case they do contain spoilers for content.

@HolyMackerel: if it wasn't for the fact that it's a dungeon crawler, i probably would've given it a try -- Devil Survivor had a pretty good story, and Strange Journey sounded interesting, at least. i know malnin's playing it now, but he's not really around much.

@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.
