    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    This really concerns me. The NDS section is being littered with game requests threads that have been asked multiple times. Is there a way we can keep these out of here, I feel like it's not promoting discussion about DS games? Maybe a sub-forum? Maybe moderated? All I know is that this has been going on for months and I'm getting a little tired of it.

    The main thing is....if we start moderating such threads, there isn't much talk over there.....I mean, people talk about the games, but as you see, such threads (even tho answered in the past), still attract people, and start discussion..

    I was closing it at first, but i kinda gave up.....If you (or anybody else) has any good, constructive idea, share it and I'll try to make it happen!

    How about an overall game suggestions sub-forum? I think that would work out dandy. I remember a time when people discussed DS games without a single thread of game suggestions on the page, not it takes up almost half the page. I'm not saying you have to necessarily eliminate these posts, but separate them.

    I don't mind it, because often they are asking questions that haven't been asked before. The first thread you highlighted is a prime example [​IMG] Looking for a game that's like another one on Google is pretty difficult.

    They aren't all re-asked questions. Some of them are valid, which is why a sub forum would be ideal and effective.
