I have thoughts about leaving too. I thought this site was impartial to all the gaming systems but let's be serious here. There's definitely is an abnormally large about of Nintendo bias on this site. You say or make a thread criticizing them and you'll get attacked. I also think some users get preferential treatment with the things they say because I think most of the mods are also hardcore Nintendo fans. Just my 2 cents.

I have to agree with much of this. I too was shocked to find out that people would disagree with my opinions.


You know that's not what I mean.

That is what you mean, it's just that you refuse to accept it.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

It seems those who post a lot get burned out quicker. They usually get so obsessed about posting they have to ask for permabans. Sometimes they come back, sometimes they don't. Spurge is one who's been coming and going for years and years.

Crap, I guess I'll be the next then

Yeah there is more Nintendo fans here than for any other console, but if other people stay here that would balance out more and more as time goes on.

As for the mods, yeah they are predominantly Nintendo fans, but as far as I've seen they don't let that affect the moderation decisions they make, which is fine.

This forum is always in a state of users coming and going.

That's not helpful since the trend is clearly negative.

What ioi has done with the numbers is amazing.  It cant be replaced.  The rest of this site though, it can be.

Indeed. It's a useful site that could fuel a vibrant forum if said forum were re-designed properly. Missed potential.

I don't get why people ask to get banned to stop coming back. They can make an all account and come back to wreck havoc.

I had a period of about a year where I didn't feel like visiting the site, so I just stopped for awhile. Doesn't always mean it's permanent. People like the website for different reasons, meaning some people will dislike certain things changing and leave.



Well, I guess its just that it was their time to leave T_T Its a shame really cause it does make me sad to see people that I interacted with so much go but that is the internet for you.

The only thing we can do really is to send them our best wishes and hope they live happily ever after and maybe one day, they will come back!

These things happen.
If you're part of a community long enough, you'll see prominent members come and go. Some times in many at once. I was frequently on a couple of big forums in between 2003-2008, so this doesn't strike me as anything unusual.

Indeed Captain. And more users will come to replace them. 

We lost a lot of good users last year, but we also got a lot more too (Kapi, RGE and more). If this year is the same and we get more awesome people then there's no issues at all. 

I mean I had 8 months away from the site, too. I might be having another couple of months away soon, too. Doesn't mean I have fallen out of love with the site, there's just other stuff that needs to be sorted.



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

I don't know but it's depressing
