I go to the Nintendo Section. Sony fans can go to the Sony section. Ms fans to Ms section. So, zero problem with the NX threads.

If there were "zero" problems, this thread wouldn't exist. I'm not against the enthusiasm for the system (I'm excited to see what it is, myself). But, the volume of threads on, practically, the same subject, needs to come down some.

Actually, I have seen latey there are more "stop the NX threads" or "too many NX threads" comments than actual comments about the NX. Maybe we are reaching full circle, and next week we'll see a push for more NX threads.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

I have not seen every many threads like this, just ones that speculate release date/what it is/what games it'll have. Nothing rong with a few here or there, but when the Hot Topics consist of 10 of these things, it's a bit much.



                                                                                                                                            

Maybe limit people to 1 NX thread per week.

You'll notice certain people are out there creating multiple NX threads at a time.



I predict NX launches in 2017 - not 2016

That was an isolated incident that happened when someone went to the "what are your NX threads" thread and necrobumped most of them. Any normal day we don't see the NX threads overtaking the Hot Topic section (unless there's a big rumour or news, in which case it's natural to see it there).

Again, if that were true, I don't think this thread would exist. Besides, it wasn't just one period that such a volume of these threads has happened. I've seen multiple weeks where a good chunk of these things are out there. 

It's more of a minor gripe than a major concern, at least from my view, but a concern, nonetheless, it is.



                                                                                                                                            

I made a mod approved NX thread way back and everyone decided to just keep posting NX threads.
There was some dissent over actually posting NX threads within that thread because "It wouldn't be visible enough".
Basically, people didn't want to post in the NX thread because they wanted their own threads.

It was really annoying. I posted so many times that new threads should be in there and everyone flipped out.

I think that, due to the speculative nature of the matter, there will not be a viable Official NX Thread until the thing is properly unveiled and we have most of the questions answered by official sources. All we have is rumours, speculations and deductions.

Thing is, everytime someone hears a rumor or has an idea, or wants to share something they make a new thread. It's really annoying because on other sites, this kind of stuff is heavily moderated to keep all the discussion within one thread. I understand we don't have a whole lot of manpower, but on other sites shit like this works. Its like everyone here is a little kid with their own soapbox.

This is ultimately what I'm saying. People are excited, so they want their stuff to be right there to grab as much attention as possible (multiple threads do this, as we know). It's just that now, it's a bit much.
