under normal circumstances, provided the only problem with the thread was the derailing argument, it depends on the topic -- it's pretty safe to say we're done with PS3 vs. 360 and religion-based topics, for example, but there have been other times where a thread has been locked for reasons of an argument and someone else has started up a similar thread later on with no problem. Dazza's the one who handed down the order to have the DSiHub thread locked, though, so you'd be better off contacting the admins about starting another DSiHub thread.

Hmmm....I thought being a mod, you would know. Surely SOMEONE on Nintendo Life knows why that happens. It has to be the work of one of the mods, right?

if anyone knows, it'd be one of the admins. as for which one would know for sure, i have no idea. :3

Clicketyclick wasn't banned -- she disagreed with us over a post of hers having been deleted. V and I typed ourselves blue in the fingers trying to explain (while Corbie hid in a corner, lol), she refused to listen, and then she up and left chat that night and hasn't been seen on the forums since.

@CH405K1N6: KnucklesSonic8 is still around, though usually in the 'impressions' threads for the weekly downloadables. he was just on yesterday making threads in the Online Gaming area. :3

this page has the info you want. it's a lot of text, but searching for the word 'lock' pulls up information on games being region-locked or not.

@Spaceboy: considering Luanne was probably my favorite character on that show, i hate to say it, but they apparently ended it in the nick of time. and they went out with probably the nicest kind of episode they could, one with Hank and Bobby finally bonding for real over a shared interest. :3

There's an explanation to that episode? :O You mean it has a happier ending?! I need to see that Bender's Big Score then, 'cause the first time I saw that episode I was down for like a week. And every time I catch a glimpse of it (doesn't have to be the end, just enough for me to remember how that episode ended), my whole day gets ruined. :(
I need closure to that episode.

i know what you mean -- i cried like a baby the first time i saw it. thought i'd be okay the next time it came up in syndication, but i couldn't bear to sit through it again knowing how it would end. Bender's Big Score does provide some closure, and it's funny to boot, so watch it and win-win, man :3

@Spaceboy: Full House is in syndication at the moment, but i forget what channel it's on.

@Spaceboy: that was a great episode. earlier seasons of The Simpsons had moments like those, but in these latter seasons they've really been few and far between (provided they've been present at all). and indeed, much love for Nick @ Nite as well. I'm kinda sad that shows i grew up with are on there now, but then again it's great to see them on TV again. Sitcoms nowadays just ain't what they used to be. :/

Also, the one you're missing is Beast with a Billion Backs. It was all right. :3

I'd also like to add a suggestion for a link to the rules to be added next to or beneath the 'comment' box in forum threads just like it is on the main site (the little 'please stick to the community rules and be nice to one another' blurb). it's a nice, friendly little reminder, easily visible every time someone has something to say... :3

Futurama is a more entertaining concept than the Simpsons and very fun to stare at, but compared to the Simpsons the actual belly laughs just don't come often enough. Which is why it was canceled, and is why it will be canceled again. The movies didn't make me laugh once, but I still had fun watching them, and I still love the show.

I love Futurama. Not only does it feed my inner sci-fi geek, it also has some pretty deep stuff going on at times. I seriously cannot watch 'Jurassic Bark' because it always makes me cry, even after Bender's Big Score explained what really happened with Fry's dog. There's also the episode with Fry and the worms that make him smart, and the one with the seven-leaf clover, and a few other episodes that i'm probably forgetting off the top of my head -- they're all funny, but they have a solemn quality as well that no Simpsons episode will ever be able to match.

That said, you're right, the movies weren't that great. Bender's Big Score had me loling pretty hard, but the rest were kinda 'eh'. i'm hoping once the writers get back into the swing of things they'll get back into the groove they had before. :3

@percent: i'd guess it was because he posted a lot of random spammy nonsense topics and, because he didn't quite seem to understand English well, he'd get mad when he thought people were saying things that they actually weren't iirc. i dunno exactly, i wasn't a mod back then. :3

@Axoloth: I thought you knew the story behind 'her'? PinkLink was an account created by a banned user. Once the proof hit the fan, 'she' was taken out -- the admins frown quite strongly upon ban evasion. :3

TC does show up in chat, usually around the weekends at night. She's got school.

Chicken Brutus explained he had IRL stuff keeping him from posting as much as before, but he's still lurking and hanging out when he can.

AlexSays actually started posting a little more here just recently. Just keep your eyes open and you'll see him pop up again.
