    Just a quick question, please no one rage at me;

    I just bought a used Pokemon Sun copy from GameStop and I hope to go to VGC this summer. If I'm getting an UNHACKED N3DS in a few weeks, can it hurt to play through the game on my 3DS with Luma+A9LH? I do not want to get banned from VGC, I will not be using any cheats in the playthrough if it matters.

    If it helps, it's a premier tournament in Port Huron.

    Now see, this is constructive :) I unfortunately am simply observing, proposing theories and keeping the thread on track in between my IT work, so I'm afraid I don't really have the time to make said poll. But this is exactly what we've been saying is needed. Ofc answers should be as non-identifying as possible (no usernames, no names, no FCs, etc) to protect them from being hit by Ninty's Banhammer, anyone who would put those into a survey is asking for it to be avoided.

    Basically we would be better off comparing activity log data dumps if it was possible. We would need exact info in order to correctly narrow down the possibilities and it might still include some kind of randomness and I don't think that any poll or person can provide the right info..

    My sister and I are living faraway from each other right now. That's the only difference I can think of right now. :(

    The game itself can't get banned.

    There's literally no point in polling unbanned people and it would only make data collection less reliable. We don't know if they are truly unbanned or still flagged by the system somehow, so trying to draw conclusions from that kind of data is stupid.

    There would be a point and it wouldn't make it less reliable. We can prove not being unbanned and we don't know how Nintendo's flagging system works.
    Both sides have to be taken into account if you want to prove that X is causing something.

    Even with this ban, local wireless would still function, correct?

    Yes. Local Wireless and offline play isn't affected at all - only online play is.

    Yes, it is really hard to do a good poll/survey that tells you what you want to know in the end, but it can be really powerful if you do it right. Its a full time job job in a lot of companies, where you highly depend on data. If we could get some nicely formated activity logs, this would be easier of course, but i don't think that we have that option.

    And again, that's stupid. It's stupid because we have no possible way to know if not being banned equals not being flagged for a ban. The only thing we can know for certain comes from the systems that DID get banned. I know you are fancying yourself as piecing this mystery together and collecting data but this argument is silly.

    Other posible thing is that Nintendo want to bans user randomly (cfw and homebrew users) so that is why we no see any correlation between user and app used, part of a plan to make harder find with the flag system.

    I could care less about me making that long ass post, everyone on our discord could've made that.

    We wouldn't even be able to properly analyse data without knowing how many people were unbanned. You can try if you want, use the poll data, and remove the amount of unbanned people from the first 3 questions, as they weren't allowed to answer the following ones. If you think that this will lead to better results, feel free to do so, here is a table of the poll results: https://mega.nz/#!Dkkj0bJI!GBW12aQFP-nFV_j80gWvwwd0XactCvnpIZeAQokCW2Q feel free to explain how not including them would actually be a better idea, so far you only made a statement without backing it up.
