    Another Question About my Wii's Safety

    Hah, I'm a little over-protective of my Wii here folks. So I heard its a bad thing to have the little thing sitting on carpet, but mines situated like so:

    It's standing on a 1 inch high piece of wood in my TV stand. Is that going to keep my baby safe? The grey represents carpet.

    And excuse me for the crappy drawing.

    You should be fine with your TV in the cabinet.

    It really doesn't matter where you put your Wii, carpet's fine. Something else entirely will likely be the first thing to go wrong with your Wii anyway.
    I tend to get on around 8 o'clock PM Eastern time, and mostly play until I get too drunk.

    LAWL, a lot of you have too much spare time ^^

    but a little more on topic, i couldnt imagine anything going wrong with it on the carpet o_o unless you had a dog or cat or something, then the hairs would mess your Wii up pretty bad.

    I am sure that the Wii will be fine on any surface, but I keep mine on a separate desk to avoid dust from the floor entering the console.

    psst I don't think they've realised yet, but these "rapper" guys sound like utter idiots.

    I keep mine on a chest of draws kinda thing and I've never had a problem.

    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
