    I've been on this site for a while now, and i'm starting to notice a trend. In the listing of the 10 most recent posts, at least half of them are questions about the Wii. This is fine since the Wii is a good console, but there is something peculiar about the posts. Say there are 6 posts about Wii in the recent 10. 3 of these go like "I want to mod my Wii..." while the other 3 go "Help! I just bricked my Wii..."

    Not sure I really have a point here. I just thought it was a humorous observation that I wanted to share.

    Wii is pretty much the most popular system discussed on GBAtemp. It also isn't THAT easy for a complete n00b to hack, and can be bricked. That would be why this happens.

    I think that's one of the points to these forums. To help people out.

    i was always in favor of setting an option in which we pick what systems we own and then be able to only see threads based on those systems

    Exactly.
    And softmodding is just a b*tch to understand completely.
    If Nintendo would have protected their console better, we wouldn't see so many topics about Wii hacking then...

    You could subscribe to forums that you want to read and never have to see anything else again... except at the front page in the "Latest Discussion" area.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
