    Damn. And I had 3000+ posts there too.

    What should we do in protest? Someone needs to hack the server or launch a mass DoS attack or something.

    I thought you meant the user NSider. Jeez, so many things dying.

    tzz.
    The european Nintendo boards are down for "maintaince" since 2 months or so.
    They suck.
    They just don't want to read all people complaining that you can't trade stars into wii points. >_>

    Most likely, they were tired of moderating millions of posts about flashcarts.

    Personally, this is a very sad occasion for me. Though I have been frequenting this forum often since Rayder turned me onto it, NSider is still my main home on the Web. I've been a Sage there (please don't bother asking my screen name -- if you know me there, you should be able to figure that out) for a while now, and I'll miss the discussions. I hope they get back up & running soon.

    You were a Sage there? I spent months trying to become a Sage, never succeeded. [​IMG]

    What really pisses me off is that they are removing the entire forum from public view in a week. Someone needs to archive everything on the database. [​IMG] Anyway I am archiving all my important posts, such as my reviews.

    I always felt the Nsider forum was a little too... lax. Rampant non-contributive posts seemed to dominate help threads. I was also creeped out by how willing some kids were to ask me my personal information and be friends. [​IMG]

    Think they'll replace it with anything else? Possibly more surveys?

    I have an urge to believe that they'll bring back the forums. Forums is really the only way to communicate with other members,a d the staff. Amirirte?

    which one, Thanks for your understanding and continued support. We'll see you soon elsewhere on the Web. or NOA_ANDY

    the two are contradictory

    "We'll see you soon elsewhere on the Web"

    That says it all

    Well, the letter explicitly states that they're doing a major overhaul. It doesn't say they're dismantling the forums. I also received a Sages-only survey from Nintendo that seems to suggest that there will, in fact, be a future for discussion and Nintendo. It might be under the guise of something other than NSider, but I'm fairly confident Nintendo will have another community for fans to gather on the Web.

    Right after that, however, it says the following

    "NOA_ANDY"

    we can conclude from this that we will never see nsider on thenternet, again.
