I noticed that some users are just banned ( they have they nick but deleted Avatar and you can view they blogs) but in some cases some users (it's less common) have generic green Avatar you can't even open the window for they profile and they have deleted_ and some numbers as a nick.
What's up with that?

I guess you ask about deleted "members".

Banned members didn't follow the rules and had their account banned. it's a staff decision.
Deleted members requested that their identity get "unlinked" to their forum's content. it's the right to be forgotten on the internet. if you think your past actions would badly influence or affect your life (finding a job, for example, and they could get back to your content. some users used their real names when registering instead of nicknames!) then you have the possibility to ask to be deleted.
The account is closed (you can't log anymore!), the name is replaced with a generic one, but the posted content is kept (for historical and legal purpose), and to prevent disruption of existing discussion flow and important posted information (guides, tutorials, etc.).

You can also ask to change your name, instead of fully deleting and losing access to your account, if you still want to use the forum.
name change is accepted on a case by case basis, but if it's for privacy reason because you registered using your real first and last name, this is automatically granted!

    @ColdBlitz, i forgot breath of the wild released for the Wii u
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    $60 for a game that's a decade old might be unheard of on PC but actually is not uncommon on consoles

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    especially Nintendo because they only ever lower the price of games when they do a greatest hits/platinum hits/players choice re-release
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @The Real Jdbye, and the HD collections released for 7th gen consoles too
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but they don't seem to have done any of those for the switch yet and maybe never will
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    I think we all forgot breath of the wild released for the wii u tbh

  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @The Real Jdbye, tbh the HD collections are more justified since they include more than just 1 game per copy
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @SylverReZ I read that non-binary people identify as a blend of male and female. The point is i think i'm a blend of those and thus non binary
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Xdqwerty, Non-binary people are those who don't identify themselves exclusively as male or female.
