@WaltzElf: I think what he meant by 'you ought to be ashamed' is that you ought to be ashamed that you took nintenden's joking around at face value and went off on him for it, lol. :3

I think you're stuck, man. You can always just check each section of the forums individually, though, and scan for ones last posted in within a certain amount of time -- it's not like posts past a few days would probably be on your radar to check up on or anything (i usually only wind up going maybe three or four pages deep into the Unread ones at any given time myself, lol).

@Luigi-La-Bouncy: I don't know if you just figured something sinister was going on behind the scenes or not, but all we do is edit out 'firsts' from otherwise-valid comments or delete them outright if all they had to say was 'first'. Also, Bahamut ZERO left the forums of his own accord as i recall -- he posted about it, but it was a long time ago. He said he might be back, but it never really happened.

@StarBoy, grenworths: this is the message from VGM Terra passed on to all of us in chat the other day --

[18:18] Terra now has the permission of VGM to tell everyone why he's leaving
[18:19] Terra: He says that he's finding Chat and the Forums rather boring lately and needs a break
[18:20] Terra: And he's not leaving because he didn't get accepted into that School because he hasn't even heard from them yet
[18:20] Terra: He says He'll still be in contact with some of us through Youtube and Xbox and that he will be back at some point

Thomas I share your concerns, Nintendo could power down the service tomorrow, and never have to refund anything. Who knows how long they will support it?

Nothing lasts forever. I don't understand why people are upset that that reality counts for downloads too. - waltzelf

Because you do not own it. You cannot ever get a refund or trade it. You cannot do anything with it. You get a bad game, it is done, points gone. I buy a bad retail game I list it on EBAY the same day and get paid money for it when it sells.

That is a huge difference what am I missing?

i don't think you're missing anything, man. in terms of WiiWare and other digital downloadables, you pays your money and you takes your chances, really. i'm not really okay with it, but there's quite a few great games i wouldn't have ever been able to play had i not just gone with the flow on this one. i'm dreading the day when my Wii and DSi finally go kaput and i'm out hundreds of dollars in games i won't be able to transfer over to a new (or newly-bought used) system because Nintendo refuses to support the Wii anymore. :/

is all custservi do is market?

No, what customer service does is skim through the hundreds (if not thousands) of e-mails they receive daily in order to come up with an answer to all of them. From the way you explain what it was you asked, it sounds like they mixed up the terms 'firmware' and 'hardware' and replied to you thusly, that's all. I'm sure if you reply to that e-mail correcting that person politely, they'll respond with a canned answer about how they don't know about any firmware updates coming down the pipeline at this time. no ranting necessary. :/

@garicnebula: if you paid for it or had it gifted to you, you don't (or at least you shouldn't) have to pay for it again. seriously, call Nintendo's customer service hotline before paying more and see what they have to say.

if you've already purchased or have been gifted something, anytime you go back to check out that game you should be presented with two buttons -- one for 'download, 0 points' and the other for 'gift' at the game's full price. i believe there's also an option to just see things you've already downloaded that are re-downloadable (so you don't have to go searching for 'em). if you're saying you purchased the game and the wii shop is now telling you that you haven't, that sounds like something you'll need to call Ninty's customer service hotline about.
