What if Nintendo paid you to get a Nintendo logo on your butt? A) would you do it and B) would you show it?

Mario on one cheek, Yoshi on the other.

I'd do it. I already have one Nintendo tattoo. I doubt I would get a thousand replies though... :/



Around the Network

To get this thread back on topic before it turns into the second tale of someone's butt, I voted "no" in the poll. Just adds work for the mod team and about half of the bans are for alt accounts and spambots. There has never been much value to the list because the moderated posts weren't linked, but adding links would only result in more unnecessary work.



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

Just tagging, probably won't have time to actually post or read anything until friday though...



End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

I have to say something about this moderation for Pyro as Bill:

Trolling (The thread had just about nothing to do with Sony and you unfortunately took not 1, but 2 shots at them. If you're going to make these claims of Sony spreading misinformation and VR causing brain tumours, it would be beneficial to include some backing sources.) ~ trasharmdsister12 [8229234]

On the point of brain tumors, does it really require a backing source when the user himself is sufficient evidence?

Thank you for the well thought out, insightful and reasoned comment.

I feel like you wrote this because you felt the need to balance out the universe after writing the other post.

Most of the old ones had the same verbage, either in the OP or throughout the thread from moderators. Don't even know why ya'll keep killing it.

You can see wether or not a user is banned under their avy or if you visit their profile. That's transparent enough. The information is there if people want it. If it wasn't clear, I voted no.

This seems a good reason to vote yes. To have a ready made list of the crazy things people have gotten banned for.

It is good to be able to go back and see "oh right this person thought VR gave brain tumors". When you are unbanned that "reason" goes away.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

Bans should only matter to the mods and not to anybody else. If there needs to be transparency then that's an issue within the mod team and public shaming users shouldn't be the way to fix it. So I stand by my original comment and vote no.

What about a compromise? Alts and spambots don't make the list. 

Miguel_Zorro, how much work is it to make a list? Even to make a list with links?
