I think some forums are a little underutilized.
« on: January 23, 2015, 12:16:34 AM »
Hello.

I don't see the Gameplay Strategy and Hardware & Wi-Fi Support forums get much activity, and I didn't know if this made the entire NWR forums feel dead. Could questions relating to these two subjects not just be placed in Nintendo Console Gaming, Nintendo Handheld Gaming, or General Gaming? I think it would tidy the forums up, and make NWR look more inviting instead of looking weak in activity at certain portions of the site.

Sorry if this is not a smart idea. I apologize if it is!

I don't think it's really a problem. It's nice to have specific areas for certain topics, and not every section needs to be really active all the time.

Maybe we can convert one to the Movie forum I was suggesting? (I volunteer to moderate it).

I've been meaning to post a general gameplay guide for Captain Toad's final post-game level: Mummy Me Maze Forever. But yeah.

The two of them could probably be combined at least.

So make it a more general "Help" forum? That could work.

Here's a question: why do we still have the friend code child boards?

See, now that's a valid question. Since they killed the Wi-Fi Connection, literally every post on those sections is irrelevant.

Just like the Funhouse, every post in that section is an irrelevant Khushrenada thread... :)

Just kidding, Khushy, you know we love you. ;)
Just some random guy on the internet who has a different opinion of games than you.

Yeah, plus the NWR March Madness board is still there. Or is that because there will be another one this year?

I take no offense to that statement. It sounds pretty accurate to me.  I was going to suggest making a "Best of Khushrenada" forum but then I realized we've got the Mafia Forum and Funhouse forum which are already serving that purpose so I just threw out the Movie Forum idea instead.

But let's face it. We all know that every thread on this forum is irrelevant UNLESS I've posted in it or made the thread. I don't say that because of ego. It's just an NWR Forum Fact.

As I said in the Funhouse, I've gone and made the friend code sections inaccessible to regular users, so no one has to be subject to Pokepal's terrible attempts at trolling ever again.

What were those attempts at trolling anyways? When I saw he posted that, I checked out those forums but saw nothing. I knew it probably wasn't as great as he was promoting but I was still curious to see what his definition of trolling was.

I just wanted to make some friends. Is there anything wrong with that?

Yeah, I wouldn't call that trolling. Just attempting humour.

"Attempting" in the same sense as someone without arms attempting to swim the English Channel.

You call this inaccessible? There ain't no forum code that can stop Khushrenada!
I can't post in the forums, but I can still read them. I think they are not visible if I log out, though, so it may just be logged in users who can see them.

Sorry, that was a bad way to say that. I just meant I agreed with it more. I'm glad people are making suggestions and asking questions even if I don't always agree, as it helps make this site better.

Is that why the March Madness board is still there? Because no one could figure out how to hide it? Or is it because there will be a new one this year and I'm spoiling the surprise?

I think it's more like nobody thought to hide it. These things aren't hurting anything by being there, they're just obsolete.

I mean, if I don't go out of my way to give you those chances you'll get frustrated by your constant failures and then the forums would lose another regular poster.
