    Attention All Newcomers

    Between now and the end of the week we are expecting a release of the Wii game, Super Smash Brothers Brawl. Now while we will talk about this game and of course have the news of the dump of this game WE WILL NEVER have the ISO here. So don't even ask about it! Nor post any links or even name places that do have a download of it. We do not have any copyrighted Nintendo Wii game files (aka ISOs) nor do we have any copyrighted Nintendo DS game files (aka ROMS). We do not condone piracy.

    Please read the Forum Rules page and act accordingly, here are the main rules that really grind our gears:

    No ROM/ISO requesting!
    No ROM/ISO linking!
    No posting anything that is considered illegal!
    Don't be an ass to ANYONE!


    Those three may result in a banning or suspension.

    Other things we frown upon:
    * No double posting & no bumping threads. If you have something to add just edit your last post.
    * Posting multiple threads about the same topic.
    * Posting info that has already been mentioned, please use the search function before posting any news.

    Sorry to get all nasty on your asses, we do welcome all newcomers so please enjoy your stay here as we are an excellent community which offers a lot more than most similar forums, thanks!

    But Hadrian is here to put the smackdown on any noob who ask for games.

    EDIT: Oh and thanks to whoever cleaned it up for me.

    Anyways, on topic, while I know it probably has to be done, it's downright sad that we have to make news posts lecturing the n00bs. Sad indeed...

    Wouldn't it be simpler to just not post the release topic?

    Not really, user submitted news would fill in just fine in that case. Besides, why should the people that run this place have to compromise one of the main services they provide here just to stop the rampant tsunami that is coming our way? There are more proper and fun ways!

    Trying to stop noobs from asking noob questions is like trying to stop rain from being wet. This is going to be just like every other big release; giant red words at the top of the release thread saying don't ask for the iso, and right under that some noob asking for the iso.

    I was going to make some pithy comment about is this really necessary?, however I have noted a HUGE number of deleted posts in some release threads recently, along with the apparent illiteracy of most n00bz on various technical forums and boards who seem to be incapable of searching, reading documentation, rules, etc.

    I'd suggest no warnings in the future but just go to insta banhammering. (I noted that in some of the Advance Wars threads that people were merely given fairly high warning levels versus banning, a mistake IMO as it is FAR better to set numerous examples early and often.)

    [EDIT]
    As an amusing aside at another forum that I frequent there existed for a time a thread entitled: Attention Fuckwit Noobs...

    But then this message should be also noted for old users as well, it hasn't stopped them from asking where the roms are nor has it stopped them from being asses to anyone. I do hope this "warning" will be enforced and turn this place to what it once used to be, a nice haven for Nintendo lovers, and not just a place for idiots to post their "1st" "lolz" "omgzzzzz" comments.

    but the thing i can't understand is that the game is coming the 9 of march, there's still plenty of time before it comes.

    So why the announcement so early?

    Or is the game coming earlier? [​IMG]

    Is the news of the of release of Super Smash Brothers Brawl that great anyway? I never really liked these games...

    I' ve been here from the old good GBA times and posting something like this on the front page news seems silly to me.
