    Okay so I'll start off with I'm not a mod or anything here, but during my travels into the forums I've been seeing ALOT of threads with the same issues or same wording. And honestly it's out of hand, there is a search button/option. If your having such and such generic error installing such and such, chances are someone else has had the same error or something similar. Instead of making a new thread please search for it by using a few common words (I.e Luma error while xxx.) 95% of the time it will show up. If I was a new CFW user wanting to get into it I'd be lost with all of these posts and it would turn me away from doing it. So please, from one active member to another use the search function.

    End wall-o text

    The 3DS sections are filled to bursting with Nintenyearolds who've basically never internet'd before.

    The mods would actually probably die of overwork if they tried to clean these sections up, and the other sections would run rampant.

    Those people who have bricks and related stuff doing the 3DS hacking tutorial at 3ds.guide should not know how to read because it's pretty simple, you just need to read everything without skipping steps.

    I found the guide over at 3ds.guide SUPER simple. Yeah it took a while to figure it where to go, but after that it's been smooth sailing.
    And we also have a Ask 3ds questions here section PINNED to the top of these forums.

    Lol. 99% of your basic questions will be answered there. Sorry this is just something that really bugs me. It takes up bandwidth for the site as well as storage space.

    Honestly, the 3DS section needs a complete and utter overhall. It's a jumbled mess. We can't just nuke it and start over, and we can't sort it because their are thousands of posts to go through. Unless the entire community volentired to sort the dang thing, it's not gonna get better.

    Unfortunately common words often aren't allowed in searches and said words will be removed. Thus, you end up with a bunch of stuff that is completely irrelevant to your problem because "some words were too short, too long, or too common". And before you say "just use google", that is a very poor substitute as it often won't have a bunch of stuff indexed either.

    Why don't they fix their search system rather than expect people to have to go through several hundred or even a couple thousand pages one page at a time because the search system is crap.

    We have to do something about that section. We can't leave it like this.
