    I'm sorry if this isn't the correct place to put this.
    Just noticed every time I open 3ds.guide 3ds.hacks.guide appears instead.
    Did @Plailect change the guide's URL? Any explanation of why he would do this?

    Yeah, he changed it. Apparently Nintendo copyrighted switch.guide or something, so they're moving all the .guides to one domain that'll also be easier to maintain. Or something like that.

    It seems like it. Even wiiu.guide redirects to wiiu.hacks.guide as well. The guides also look fairly normal. He probably did it because 3DS/WiiU hacks guide is more specific than just simply 3DS/WiiU guide. Having everything centralized to a simple hacks.guide is probably easier to manage and buying another domain for a switch.guide when that gets hacked won't be necessary.

    It's not registered according to WHOIS. Dunno how they could copyright an unregistered domain.

    I heard from someone else, I have literally no evidence.

    There's a DPML block on switch.guide due to it being a trademarked term. This, along with a desire to centralize more, has lead me to move the various guides to the hacks.guide domain.

    Why didn't Nintendo block 3DS/WIIU.guide? Can they not do it if you got the domain? Or are they just doing it because they don't want you making more guides?

    I'm fairly certain it's just a block on most switch.<someTLD> domain names, not switch.guide in particular.

    I see. Thanks.
    BTW, the devGuide says to go to #Cakey and the guide says to go to Nintendo Homebrew. You should probably fix the discrepancies (would do a PR but can't find the file where that is, already searched /__pages/home.html)

    Also, you should bring back the NAND sizes page.

    Heh, it's actually here: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide_Dev3DS/blob/master/_data/navigation/en_US.yml#L35

    This was actually intentional, but since I find myself spending more time on Discord and less time on IRC, I'll change it to match the regular guide.

    It's not really needed since minsize backups have been the norm forever (just backs up the needed partition size, not the entire flash), and flash chip sizes can be found on 3dbrew.
