    Hi all,
    Just wanted to quickly tell eveyone that if you want to make a new thread to ask a question, please do so in the "Ask!"section of Gbatemp. Here's a link for the section:
    https://gbatemp.net/ask/nintendo-3ds-questions/
    If you follow the link it should bring you to a page for narrowing your question down to specific fields:
    Gateway: *shudder*
    Sky3ds: *dissapointment*
    Hacking: *approval*
    Gaming: *"Can someone upload the title key for -?"*
    Now I know that I'm not an admin but lately I've been seeing releases or more important threads being overcrowded by all the question threads. Using this we can keep the threads from overflowing with a bunch of question (most of which have been already answered). Also before asking a question make sure your question hasn't already been asked and follows the rules (no warez).

    Anyways that's all for now and I'll see you around (probably on a 'Is slowhax out yet?' thread).

    The "noob paradise" thread in the CFW section is also valid, since very few of the questions posed in this subforum are actually development or emulation related.

    It's certainly a more relevant place than a subforum meant for programming and development. But you're right: there's no ideal place for a lot of questions aside from the Ask section, which has its own issues. I doubt anything will change, though. People asked months ago for better organized 3DS sections and it was ignored, even after a few knowledgeable people volunteered to help keep things organized :\

    Probably because when people ask questions in the ask part of the forums it just ends up as a bunch of unanswered questions.

    No. Normally you get at least one response.

    Screenshot I took not too long ago:
    Just because I don't post much, I know nothing. You may know how these threads work but other's may not.
