    Currently it's:


    But it would probably be better stated as:


    That and it should be shown for the flashcart forum too (maybe without the homebrew part). Both sections are getting these questions asked nearly every day, and it's getting crazy (not to mention all of the off-topic posts/spam, but that's a discussion for another thread).

    Edit: What is the default font size for the forum? This annoying WYSIWYG editor edits all of my text to be huge when posting other huge text..

    A slight update to this, I would also suggest adding something to the effect of: "The eShop/Nintendo services using NNID is/are no longer usable on 9.3-10.1 (10.2 is safe for now)." A lot of topics seem to be creeping up asking about this.

    Most of noob's shitpost are just failing to read the stickies.
    Not that they don't also post stupid ideas, though.

    Maybe the best idea is to just be tolerant of noobs. Kinda like parents have to be with their small children.

    All of the corrective measures in the world will not stop them from finding ways to irritate forum vets.

    I forgot to turn my ds off before taking my sd out, and my game crashed. Can that be an exploit? I can post a video if you want.

    I'm not sure what mean by "tolerant" but, yeah, flaming them won't help anyone. It's best just to c+p and link the stickies and tell them to read the stickies next time.
    If they do it again they should be banned because now they have no excuse.
    If you don't ban them they're going to shitpost again, and again.
    Newb shitposters (mostly) post nothing of value. Zero tolerance banning at this point would help clean up the forums a bit.
    It should be against the rules to not read the stickies and (sub)forum description.
