    That's all part of the fun. Even better when you leave the proceeding posts intact and just have a gap where thier thread used to be, that really must mess them up.

They also haven't yet received Theta Sigma's intro post yet.

    I did see someone take that to the limits though recently by posting about 5 or so times (separate threads each time too!) in the Intro area. However, I think it's the other areas that gets the mods more upset. I now wait cringing in the corner for repudiation from Wiidoggii.
    LOL! You better run,you better hide...LOL
    I think that the intro section is ok to post a question for your first post.
    And a reply to help is ok, But it would be wise to point them in the right direction.

    Example;
    NOOB; Hi I like this site and I need help with running backups on my Wii.

    REPLY: Sure, here are a couple of tips that will help you, Read the guides, go to this link,BLAH BLAH,.....

    PS. I'm watching you..LOL
    PLEASE SEARCH, READ, AND THINK BEFORE DOING ANYTHING.


    Don't forget the thanks button...

    Motivation alone is not enough. If you have an idiot and you motivate him, now you have a motivated idiot.

    lol same.

    i reckon my intro copypasta should be all anyone needs. it gives most of the important info.

    for those who havent seen it:

    Hi, and welcome to wiihacks.

    Before you start anything, make sure you read the rules go over the tutorials, and most importantly,search before asking questions. Make sure you post in the correct areas of the forums, or you could be sent to the reading room (if you want to know what that is, search.), or even banned.

    You could Donate to the forum and get a nice banner under your name, and access to the donater forums, and have a chance to get other items, like Ntorrents Invites.

    We also have an irc chatroom on irc://irc.uicn.net/wiihacks (if you know how to use it it can be marvellous) If you dont have one, chatzilla for firefox is the best and easiest to use irc client. after you install it (its an addon) just click the link at the bottom of my sig and you're in IF YOU DON'T HAVE FIREFOX, GET IT. Please read the irc rules before joining. Hope too see you there!

    I hope you have a great time at wiihacks, and that i see you around!

    regards, ΘΣ


    is that good enough?

    if you want anything added to it, just ask.

    We could set a different section for each problematic game, but they would still post wherever they see fit... oh well... i suppose we could start all handing out infracions and delete the thread...

    I don't think there's ever going to be a solution to the problem messie. People will assume that they are the only ones ever in the history of the universe to have the 002 error/return to Wii menu/error 2011 problems and simply post without looking. Thankfully only a minority will actually do this, I'm sure laods of people actually bother checking first.
