    Hey guys,

    In the down time, many of the users from here went on over to ninstation to fill the void that Wiichat left when it died...

    So I think it's only fair that we head over there for the E3 news and goos. Neuro has done a fantastic job with the site and will be adding info throughout the conference here; http://www.ninstation.com/index.php?action=unread;all;start=0

    And there's also live chat for all those who want to talk about the great stuff nintendo has*sniggers*

    http://www.ninstation.com/chat/

    I don't see this as site advertising. Like I said Ninstation was a good go to site in the downtimes, so give Neuro some credit and stay up to date with all the latest news from E3.

    ENJOY!

    you may not see it as advertising but it still is. you're advertising an outside site. and for the record, this is the first time i ever heard of ninstation

    Ask around, others might see it differently, and I don't see this place with the sort of organisation that Ninstation has. It's for the benfit of a good moderator and so that you know everything when it happens.

    why? youtube, G4, gaming magazines, why not use them? and yeah, you are advertising. its an outside site and you're advertising for wiichat people to go to it.

    15. Competing Sites
    The internet is a big place, and it's no surprise that from time to time a site will come along whose mission is to occupy the same niche as WiiChat.com. We have no issue with that. However, it would be against our best interests, and therefore the best interests of our members, for us to allow such sites to build upon our popularity by promoting themselves on WiiChat.com. Therefore, no competing site may attempt to gain traffic from WiiChat.com in any way, including but not limited to links in posts, signatures, profile information, PM's, emails, or IM's.

    I'm still annoyed Ninstation has an edited version of the logo I made, which looks rancid now!

    Take the rules and shove it.

    The only shame is that Neuro is WAY better than iOn.

    Even though Wiichat has a larger audience, it is a magnet for dumbasses. When I say dumbass, I mean people who can't figure out how to turn off the blue light on their Wii or how to read instructions.

    I'm gonna head over and see what this Ninstation place is about and give it a shot. If it has better organization than Wiichat, then I may go over there. And the fact that these kinds of threads (and clan promotion threads, and all other illegal threads) tend to stick around for about 4-6 eternities is truely a testament to how bad the moderation is here. Thank you :)

    I remember this site being mentioned, I didn't join though, I'm already in too many bloody forums.

    I had a look, and I saw LemonManx, the last person I expected to see. I didn't know he posted at wiiloaded either!

    Because, you know, this site is being managed so well that everyone should just ride this dead horse over the cliff.

    People have two choices: dance around with their fingers in their ears like nothing is wrong until the domain stops working for like the third time this year and the site disappears for days/permanently, or try to coordinate with each other a new locale so they can retain some semblance of the community they've spent so long building.

    Well you probably weren't connected to the other people via Facebook or IM. When WiiChat crashed in January, there were only the non-Wiichat means of networking to get the word out. If you weren't somehow linked to the other people, there was no way for you to hear about it. And with the advertising rules, you're not going to tend to hear about it here. ;)

    I had hopped on Facebook and emailed the people in the Facebook WiiChat groups, as well as the few people who had added me personally. I also IMed the people I had on IM, which included mostly mods here. Those people in-turn contacted the people they had ways to get in-touch with, and so on... and it went from there. Unfortunately it was only possible to get in-touch with a tiny percentage of WiiChat users that way... but almost 50 people signed up that one week, with over 30,000 page views.

    I read all over those rules and couldn't find the one that applied to how to handle things when the admin vanishes and hasn't been heard from for half a year and the site is going down the toilet. Lacking an official contingency plan, people are left to fend for themselves.

    Breaking and entering is illegal too, but if the boat is sinking and the captain already abandoned ship and the keys to the lifeboats are locked in his cabin, screw the rules.

    Aw, you should be nice to him, considering you have an account there and posted over 30 times before you left. ;)

    Not any more. It was changed last month.

    Glad to see you stopped by. Hope to see you there again... it's been hopping lately. Activity in June exploded and already July's activity is about to surpass June's.

    The forum there is actually moderated and kept under-control. More mods will be added once necessary... something not possible at WiiChat since i0n is the only one who can create mods, and virtually no existing mods com here anymore.

    Well you'll find that there is mostly talk about Nintendo stuff there. ;) Unlike this forum, where even the admin wasn't particularly into the Wii, ironically (his XBox360 site has gone even more into the shitter).
