    What's up everyone! I haven't been as active lately because school here in China, but is it just me or have threads gotten really REALLY stupid. Almost as if people have forgotten how to use the amazing website called, "Google". Now, I'm not complaining or anything, but would it be possible if threads could get viewed first by someone before it actually gets posted? Seriously, I have never seen so many people ask ridiculously easy to find information or questions that just don't make any sense what so ever. I typically see it in the 3DS section to, so I'm like, "I'm staying away from there for quite awhile." (Except Mashers and a few others. You guys are doing some amazing work.) What are your thoughts on these threads? Have they gone too far? Thanks Tempers!~

    AWH! XD I haven't really viewed the cemu thread because I don't want to make myself sad knowing I don't have the hardware to run any of it. RIP people who used to actually used to search for information.

    My guess is that the traffic has increased with the boom of the 3ds scene. With the good comes the bad. I wouldn't necessarily say people are lazy. Alot are, but some might not fully understand what they've read and need clarification.

    Also having all posts moderated before publishing is an awful idea.

    True, that would be time consuming for the Mods.
