Over the past few weeks, we’ve been getting numerous emails from you guys about certain people on the site who have been inciting arguments and being generally rude in the comments. The old Disqus system didn’t allow for comment moderation by commenters and going through each article that’s posted, finding arguments and moderating them is a near full time job. Today, we’ve updated the Disqus comment system to its newest version, so that you can upvote and downvote posts similar to reddit.
For posts that you enjoy and feel they contribute to the topic, upvote them so they’ll move up the comment ladder to the top of the article. For posts that are full of foul language and are unacceptable, downvote it and move on. Don’t contribute to the trolling process. After three downvotes, that post will automatically be hidden from the timeline and you won’t have to put up with it anymore.
This update is part of our commitment to the community to make sure you guys have the best site available for discussing Nintendo and the Wii U. Let us know how you like the changes in the comments below and if there’s anything else we can do to make your experience using the site better. We’re currently in the process of updating our game database that’s full of release info to contain more relevant information, including games that are upcoming and rumored.
Thanks for being a loyal reader!
