    The theory behind this is with the ever increasing topics when a new game or firmware comes out, how frustrated are you when people don't read, or are just plain 'silly' (I'm watching my choice of words) when it comes to common sense and hell even using the search or sticky functions.

    Every 4.2 question, preloader, HBC ios error, how to hack their WII step by step plz, what firmware to use, or what Flash card to buy starts to get to you. Especially after dozens of posters here and every other forum dedicate their time to write reviews and guides so detailed an Amish person could figure it out.

    Let the frustration out. I see there's been topics like this before, but why 'grave dig' and bring back topics, when there's so MUCH frustration now.

    Retal: Awww Retal, look who proves my POINT, lol. I help via PM. Because posting is just that posting, making a 10pg long thread about a topic with maybe one or two useful posts, it's kinda retarded. Actually helping someone and seeing them go "jesus it's fixed, my wife/gf/parent would have killed me", is a lot better then having ur post lost behind retards and cynical arseholes.

    Also, I lerked for about a year, until I actually broke down and bought a NDS/WII system, so why would I be on here if I didnt have one of those. Oh and yea, I was a US Marine for 6yrs, doing everything you see on tv, commericals and video games that you play and actually making a difference, so Retal get off your high horse please.

    I'm still helpful and post more before becoming a jackass. It took me like 5,000 on Smash World Forums and I got bitched on forever before I became cynical. Now I'm hated by every moderator and almost destroyed an administrator and a super moderator and revealed most of the inner workings of the website.

    Beat that.

    I'm a mix of 2, 3 and 4. So basically I'm cynical, always providing useless posts, without ANY knowledge, and I like to give (mostly useless or bad) advice.

    @ Retal: The man joined in May, so basically that's 5 months. What's wrong with 100 posts in 5 months? I suppose you yourself voted for the 3rd option, because it seems so...

    Awww Retal, look who proves my POINT, lol. But see if you look there's no posts about me asking questions or being retarded, because like all great individuals... I read. Also I help via PM. Because posting is just that posting, making a 10pg long thread about a topic with maybe one or two useful posts, it's kinda retarded. Actually helping someone and seeing them go "jesus it's fixed, my wife/gf/parent would have killed me", is a lot better then having ur post lost behind retards and cynical arseholes.

    Also, I lerked for about a year, until I actually broke down and bought a NDS/WII system, so why would I be on here if I didnt have one of those.

    I enjoy helping people as it increases my post count, thus increasing my penis size.

    Surely posting would be better because it doesn't just help that one person; it helps anyone who has a similar problem.

    I see your point, however it doesn't really help... especially when 99% of the time the answer is already mentioned on the site, or other sites. Which just create more chaos lol. So, posting for the sake of posting isn't always the best way. There's a reason why we have stickies and tutorials.

    If you look, when I find something specific that hasn't been mentioned before, I note it in a new topic. That why it's there for people when they search. I also use "TAGS" that when people search they can locate topics easier.

    Wrong section? [​IMG]

    Anyway, im pretty much 1 and 4 on this

    although when the same question is aked a million times, i do sometimes get annoyed and just say google or use the search function, or anything to just annoy that person, so on some times cynical as well. its those types of questions like " When is so and so dumped?" , "can i play GBA games on my R4?" "how can i make cheats appear on R4" "what flashcard do i buy" (those threads ultimately end up in an open argument about which flashcard is ultimately the best)

    Pirating... come on? I've never done that... psh. I'm a legal, law biting citizen. I feed the homeless, hell.

    Yea, I thought so too. But no one's yelled yet. I started this on my phone, I'm doing jury duty.
