    Hi all,

    I've heard that the modchips have been messing up the voting channel. Is this true? I like that channel and it would suck if that were to happen. Is it just a date reset issue because of the battery being taken out?

    No modchip currently affects Wii units in any adverse ways!

    (AFAIK)

    Where have you heard this? It's probably just cos the date needs resetting if you take the Wii battery out.

    This happened to me, it has nothing to do with the mod chip. The channel just gets messed up because you pull the battery out. Its a non-issue though, to fix it just delete all data from within the channel. It will reset the channel and it will be back to normal. You might lose your voting data, but thats a small price to pay.

    lol at ^. But what it has been rumored is that if you remove the battery, your registered voters are still registered, just what you vote for dissapears. ie your votes are gone. (possible way of gaming the system?)
