Should be fine on the board, any electronics such that have fans or generate much heat should never be on carpet FYI.
Leads to consoles getting hotter as the carpet acts as an insulator. As well static electricity has a lot more possiblity of zapping electronics on carpet, plus you gather dust / dirt more easily
i cant believe so many people are ignorant to such simple precautions. this guy put it well, and theres nothing wrong with taking care of your hard earned belongings. its always obvious who has been spoon fed their whole lives. change your own damn oil you panzies!!
waaaa my wii is making hissing noises, but i was too damn dumb to realize the fan might actually suck up my nasty dingleberries off my shag carpeting the wii is immersed in.
doesnt everyone use the stand that comes with the Wii?
obviously Nintendo have designed it to sit on a flat surface, in the year ive had mine, ( i know it's not exactly a year), it hasnt moved from the side of my TV Cabinet, it hasnt been pee'd on by my cat, and my Carpet hasnt started to invade the fans or the disc slot.
using the stand means there is nothing actually touching the Carpet.
