Let me first tell you a little bit of the history...
The forum actually started out way back in 2010 by Adam, as a place to 'buzz' about the announcement of the 3DS at the time. This quickly turned into a rather large community, one which I was proud to be part of. About a year ago, activity dwindled, and Adam just didn't have enough time to invest into the forum. Earlier in the year, I proposed that I would take over, when he accepted, I set off my preparations to revive it and merge it with my own blog, NintyBuzz. It took them a bit of convincing, but the community was accepting of the move.
Since I took over, I paid for the software to finally get updated (he was running on early 1.2), rejigged the design, and introduced new, and returning, features. Such features include a levelling up system for trophies, our very own forum shop, called Yoshi's Trading Post, improved posting ranks and banners, the return of Game Days, and new tournaments! My aim? To rebuild the once fantastic community and grow more, to make it a fun and unique Nintendo community to be part of!
There we have it, what do you think?
