New user, be nice pls

Hey everyone! I'm a new poster here @ VGF... I used to be a part of the GamesRadar+ Community Forums from like 2007 to whenever it shut down. I was there for a long time and of course, was heartbroken when it was shut down :c

It's been YEARS since that happened and I kind of miss having a community of people to talk to and stuff (I've kept in touch with many of them but through FB, etc.)

I play mostly Nintendo but just got my first XBONE, so if you have suggestions for it feel free to drop them here! Nintendo games I'm currently playing areeeee: Breath of the Wild on the Switch & Ultra Moon on 3DS

I'm super busy most days but would love to try and post daily. Tell me about yourself and your favorite thread! xo

I'm never nice.

Welcome to the forums.

Does 'Rare Replay' sound like your kind of thing? Thirty games cram-packed together-----------if you're into Rareware, it might be right up your alley. I'm also quite fond of 'A Hat in Time'. It's a bit like 'Banjo-Kazooie', only without Banjo, or Kazooie. Hmm!

As for the upgrade...no idea, I'm afraid. Start a thread asking about it here, is my advice. The admins are a pretty helpful bunch (when they aren't busy being horrible, of course).

Welcome to our club.

We just switched software a few months ago, so any links pointing to somewhere may be dead, while any FAQs may be somewhat outdated.

The donate link at the top of the forums is functional if you wish to donate. I still have not come up with many new features to give to donors because of how the usergroup permissions function, but it is more there if people wish to contribute to a modest goal of helping cover the costs.

As a newbie user, you would be restricted from several features until X posts.

Alternatively, people used to be able to get the avatar option when they reached 100 posts, but come to think of it, auto-promotion isn't enabled out of the box. However, there is an official extension that I can add which should do the trick.
Now I know there's a reason you shouldn't blame others when you do something wrong, and that reason is: you might get caught and have to apologize to a bunch of dumb peasants.

Heya, welcome to VGF. We’d love to have you stick around a while.

Who’s On Top (WoT) has kinda become our general hang out thread, if you ever get bored and want to pop in over there. Other than that, just post wherever piques your interest!

Hello and welcome to our special blend of madness... *gives you marshmallows* I'm looking forward to seeing you post regularly!! I don't think I have a favourite thread any more... but I do post mostly in the Misc. Feel free to join in and to make threads in the XBox forum, too.
Spoiler.
Boo is actually very nice, regardless of what he says. ;)

Happiest faerie of VGF.

Hey, welcome to VGF! We all are pretty partial to Nintendo around here so you'll likely fit in well, I think.
