    I think that would help cut down on all the incredibly easy to google questions that this section gets every day.

    Do you not see the thread that says "[Request] Nintendo Eshop Sale editor"? I think its clear that this place needs a FAQ.

    It doesn't really require a FAQ what it does require is people to use the little thing near the top of the page I might be wrong lol but I think it is used to do something called a search. It's quite useful and you can normally find that the question you have in your head has been asked a thousand times before by other people.

    that's adorable. and it proves my point that much more.

    like i said, all of these questions could have easily been solved with google or the gbatemp's search bar. I don't mean to be rude but I don't think anyone making threads asking for someone to hack the eshop to give them free money will know how to use a search bar.

    The search bar isn't anything new and it's not doing anything to solve the problem.

    Yes but if people are dumb enough not to search for answers what makes you think they will be smart enough to actually look in the FAQ because I don't have high hopes in them doing that

    What harm would having a FAQ have on the website though?

    the dumbfucks would be too dumb to actually think of looking in the FAQ for answer's so it would be pretty pointles

    I'm not a negative nancy I'm a realist lol I for many a year was a admin on a rival site to gbatemp and we had the same problem over there and we started faqs on the wii ds and 3ds threads and nobody used them and the dumb questions still continued

    No, what people need to use is the little thing on the top of their bodies. I might be wrong but I think it's used to do something called thinking.

    Well to be fair the 3DS section only recently got expanded. Why not you make a F.A.Q thread and hope it gets stickied? Don't ask to be stickied though. You'll never get stickied that way.

    Just about every post in the 3DS section IS a frequently asked question. It's already apparent that people don't read other threads before posting.

    That's exactly the point I keep making but people don't seem to want to listen lol as I said previously on the site where I was an admin nobody ever used the faqs and they just asked the same questions over and over and over to the point where I got so pissed off with it I quit and came over here just to find it just as bad lol but at least here are some good people as well
