2012 Game of the Year (modern systems)
Good 'ole Dagoss. He always had interesting humor :lol:

Banjo and Kazooie
A little early, but who cares ;)

Banjo and Kazooie won a highly contested vote off against Diddy Kong Racing, to be crowned out 2 year anniversary January Game of the Month.
It is a special month, and it is a special game. I know we have some hardcore fans of it on here. I owned the game ages ago, but unfortunately traded it to my brother like a dummy. I did get my hands on Tooie though!

I remember being blown away by the look and feel of it when I bought it. Rare was right on the money with this one.

Christmas Gifts
That is terrible! Poor kid..... kinda funny though to :lol: I bet he thought his parents did it at first ;)

Regarding Banned Members
Feeling the support of our member base behind us is a great feeling. It is my pleasure to serve on the staff, and I am sure the rest of the staff feels the same way. We have something rare here, no doubt about it. At the rate we are growing, we sure have no room for bad apples.

Regarding Banned Members
Usually only that type of ban if reserved for someone you anticipate backlash from. A typical join only to "spam and go" type of member gets the standard ban.

I have only used the geolocation deal a couple of times before in regards to bans, as thankfully we don't have to ban many members :)
It is an excellent tool for investigating multiple account type situations.

Regarding Banned Members
No problem. Some bans are more comprehensive. His was to the highest degree we are able. All his IP's are banned, his email is banned, his account has a general ban and is closed as well. It is not fool proof, I am sure a dedicated individual would find a way.

For extra caution I used geolocation on his IP addresses. I currently check this location against all new members for some time to ensure, as much as possible, that he is not coming back.

Regarding Banned Members
Yes, the web is full of trolls.

Grizz, it bordered on causing conflict at first. We were apprehensive, but let it go on because you handle it the right way. People were rude at times, and you still were polite back to them. Occasionally we will get a new member who is put off by it, but it has been a pretty successful topic. It even garnered some nominations for thread of the year if I recall correctly. Props to you for the way you handle yourself in that thread!

I am all for free speech, just not conflict and tension ;)

Nintendo 64 Forever 1000th Member Giveaway (FINISHED)
I love this amazing idea, clarky. I had been looking forward to it since you mentioned it :)

Good luck to all. Somebody is going to be VERY lucky to own your awesome creation!

he was an obvious troll.
Funny you say that - during staff talks, his behavior was described as "troolish" :lol:

Thanks for the support guys.

2012 Best Thread
My nomination goes to the 2012 N64 Game Off thread. It came out of nowhere and is a real success. It racked up almost 300 posts since its' inception. Props to lithium for starting it, and to BDR who relentlessly promotes it!

Other honorable mentions: Post when you buy or sale any game, and Game of the Month.

Joining the military (Navy)
I have a lot of family in various branches of the military. I never had a desire to join personally.

Like anything important, just think it through completely before deciding. 4 years is a long time,

I wish you the best in whatever you decide. I appreciate your desire to serve never the less :)

99% of the people who post here seem to be very friendly and awesome, and I couldn't even come up with a list because honestly I would probably leave someone out, so I choose everyone :)
EXACTLY! I feel so bad, I left so many good names out :mellow: That is the problem with having SO MANY great members though ;)

Hey :)
Welcome to Nintendo 64 Forever :D

Hello Everyone :) I know its a bit late :)
Welcome to Nintendo 64 Forever! Better late than never ;)

Regarding Banned Members
I am glad you guys seem understanding. I don't like banning people either, it is the un-fun part of the job.

He wasn't ALL bad. Over the last year he had a habit of emoticon only replies as well as a plethora of replies that added nothing to the discussion. Many replies were off topic as well. Those are technically rule violations, but the kind of stuff nobody really harps on if it isn't a barrage of it. The derogatory personal attack prompted the pm, so I discussed the 3 rules he broke specifically with his post as well as the ones he had a pattern of breaking. Instead of compliance, he continued to harp about the issue he was told to drop.

I hope that gives you guys a better understanding of why we reached this decision. He had chances. Both of my pm's to him ended with plainly saying that if he didn't follow the rules, he would be gone. He didn't acknowledge I said it either time, and chose to make yet another derogatory and "contribute nothing" reply this morning before the vote. The derogatory one has since been deleted.

I didn't really intend to divulge so many details. Truthfully though, the staff has nothing to hide. I wouldn't want people thinking we did someone unfairly.

I will refrain from mentioning what his threat was.
