    He is part of it?
    Also people tend to correct and give suggestions so it all works out in the end.

    Yes, I give you "contributor" rights so you can go in and edit it. There are some simple rules. Just update the "last updated" line at the start and add your changes to the changelog at the bottom. There are many contributors to the Wii U guide and if you don't want to edit it then you can just tag me with suggestions. PM me if you want to be a contributor.

    Ignore them, those guys don't know about your excelent contributions on the Wii U side, and not only that, you are pretty responsive including on those "ridiciulus" n00b threads instead of laughting at (like on certain Nintendo's old handheld side of the forum, and its scene in general).

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    It's an empty thread with no info. He's reserving a "title" despite the fact that thread names on gbatemp can't be reserved and don't have to be unique. It's the equivalant of posting "First".

    doesn't matter since he has actually contributed to the hacking scene. He can reserve as much as he wants. I too followed his Wii U guide in the past and I am excited for his future guide for Switch. go @Kafluke!!

    Yeah maybe a bit premature on my part. I was sitting home with the flu and thought I'd start working on the guide but there's nothing really noobish to post yet.

    people making noob sticky posts for something that hasnt even been released yet.

    stop creating hype, we all see how desperate you are to get a hacked switch and play pirated roms and homebrew.

    but please only create these threads when it actually has something to post, the switch and its fans are making gbatemp a click bait wh0re.

    Nobody is trying to create hype and I'm not desperate for homebrew. If you actually read through the OP you would see that this was an attempt to provide a catch all for the inevitable slew of "noob" guides that will pop up and confuse every body. The same thing happened in the Wii U scene and we had a plethora of guides written and several of them misled users that even caused bricks. This was an attempt to stave off that same thing from happening again. Maybe you'd actually like to contribute something to the guide instead of just calling people click bate whores. I don't really care about likes, or people following me. If you'd like to be a positive force in the Switch scene then let me know and I can make you a contributor.

    Also, you can look at my other work if you think I'm just a clickbait whore. I actually purposefully bricked my own Wii U so that I could construct an unbrick guide. I've spent countless hours updating and helping people because I get paid for it. Oh wait, no I don't get paid. I do this just because I like to. Why not try and provide positive feedback instead of a flimsy insult?

    but i see no sense in creating a n00b guide when there is nothing to guide.

    your attempt is to prevent a slew, yet creating one at the same time, because you have nothing to provide as there is nothing released.

    when something is released and your thread is littered with people stating theres no point at the moment, so when someone has something to release and provide a guide, this thread then is littered already.

    its best to stop slewing the forum, wait for something to be released, then create a n00b guide.

    Yeah, I remember seeing that approach "work" for the Wii U scene as well as the 3ds scene which is why there are still leftover guides in both places with incorrect information. Thanks for the lessons on forum etiquette. You are only contributing to the litter yourself. Way to go.

    just pointing out that gbatemp is getting littered with people creating threads in the hope to get some behind the scene information, when nothing has been released.

    these threads are as much use as creating a PS5 N00b hacking guide.

    Fair enough. I've already asked the mods to alter the title. I'm not looking to argue. Can we instead work together to make this great?

    I just want to say...

    Kafluke you have helped so many on here, thank you. Don't worry about these fools.

    As it goes I am waiting to hack one of my Switch and I am tired of everyone saying it is for piracy. Everyone is different. I have bought every game I want to play (and some I don't play!!) on the Switch. I have two Switch - one I bought just to hack. I enjoy hacking and find it fun. Actually for me I think I enjoying hacking and messing around with my consoles, pcs, whatever as much playing with them. I wouldn't have bought any Switch if it had not been for the fun I have had hacking my 3ds / Wii / Wii U.

    Why do people think it is ok to judge if they don't want to hack their Switch?
