    ~~DISCLAIMER: THIS IS NOT A REAL QUESTION~~

    How do I get haxchi without paying $$$ for it?

    I feel like this is a question that has been asked many times before, but I've just got so many answers that I don't know what's true and what's not.

    Thankfully due to me posting this post, it can once and for all answer the question for all others. :teach:


    - A really egotistic GBATemp user

    ~~END OF DISCLAIMER. REAL POST STARTS BELOW~~


    But on a more serious note. I really think it's important that we discuss the possibility of content filters for posts made on this site. Most importantly, filtering questions that have been answered hundreds of times before, and hopefully culminating all answers into a possible FAQ or just referring people to a guide.

    What do you guys think about doing such a thing?

    While right now there are certain rules against posting potentially illegal files and such, there is no real rules regarding 'quality of posts'. What would you guys think about adopting something similar to this:

    As supplied from the WiiUhacks reddit subreddit?

    Only ones who can are European users.
    I believe they have Brain Age for free.

    So outside of that, you cannot have Haxchi without paying.

    Sorry guys, I guess I could've made this more clear. The real point of this post is located beneath the question.

    it was back in 2014 I believe. I'm not sure how it worked. I think it was making a new NNID, but I don't know for sure.

    If you need an example of a good content filter look at /r/3dshacks, out of the hundreds of posts that go through in a week (mostly dumb questions and the likes) only about five make it without getting deleted.

    Good idea I pulled the rules I was looking for and tagged them in the OP for reference for those who may be unfamiliar.

    Guys I hate to break up the party but this really isn't the point of this post. To help you out though and answer you question, the free game is region based. You must be in a region with the game currently free in order to get it. This is why some people can get it for free and others cannot.

    Sorry for starting off the post in a way that may have peaked your interest but I really wanted to discuss something else with this thread. Hopefully this answers your question though.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Once again, please read past the initial question in the OP! :) No hard feelings

    you can't really have a noob guide since the same questions will undoubtedly be asked again and again. anyway, that's what stickies are for. @Kafluke has a nice noob guide that should satisfy anyone interested in wii u hacking. :)

    exactly. That's why I'm asking if we could have that stickied and have a content filter for posts where those which are unnecessarily repeated would be removed. that's what i want to feel out with this post, as so far it has worked very well for other forums like those on reddit

    the problem is that temp has like 300,000+ members, and there are only a few mods/supervisors/admins, so it's difficult to police everything unless it's reported. however, as of now, reporting is only for offensive posts or spam I believe.

    Don't bother about it. It exists in every forum on Internet. Also, there's answers for every questions here, but some of them are hard to find (and others asked a million times, I know). Every person here just wants to help, let them help even answer silly questions.

    So you just have to create a new nnid, assign it to a wii u account and you can download a free brain age, right ?

    I like to ask questions and ask for support wherever I feel like needing it.

    Stfu with your stupid threads. Your thread is useless. Let's close it please.
