Welcome to the Nintendo 3DS Forums!

It's like a strategy guide. Not really worth reading, but can be helpful.

5. How to Create a Thread
6. Editing Your Profile

1. Welcome!

--Welcome to the Nintendo 3DS Forums! You have made a wonderful choice to join this amazing site. If you have an account, I suggest you start by introducing yourself in the Introduce Yourself forum. If you don't have an account yet, make one! We have many warm-welcoming people here who would be glad to get to know you. Add something interesting, if you so desire.

--Before posting or commenting on a thread, please read the rules. Failure to follow the rules can lead to an infraction, warning, or ban. To view the rules, click here. Note, after Team Animus hacked vB forums, the rules disappeared, and the rules' current placement -- as an announcement -- is temporary.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Nintendo 3DS FAQs

--We here at Nintendo 3DS Forums encounter a lot of duplicate threads. Have a question about the Nintendo 3DS? We probably already have the answer to your question. You can find a list of FAQ's here, thanks to GwJumpan, or, if your question was not answered in the listed thread, ask the question in the Nintendo 3DS Q&A, also thanks to GwJumpman.

If you're seeking answers for this site specifically, there's a general FAQ about the board (these forums) here (alternately on the top navigation bar).

nice, but if I may, I would suggest you add "AC (Animal Crossing)" to your 'Get-to-Know Words/Phrases' section, this is a term that I had trouble with

Ohai Dan, while you're in my cozy warm bed...I'd like to advise you to add the term "BYR" in the dictionary along with our ChatBox motto that we need to DISCUSSSSSSS. I would kinda like it to be like Team Rocket's motto but a little more annoying and persistent ^_^ Also a lot more sexy with epic outfits

Wonderful, a full guide to navigating this site, I feel welcome already! I'd also like to commend the makers of this site on such a simple and accessible website design, it's quite easy to navigate. Also I respect how this site is being monitored to insure the absence of inappropriate content, well done. Quick question: Is there a topic in the 3DS forum that asks what 3DS games we are most anticipating? I'd really like to share my opinion on that subject. (:

Hi! Umm... i'm not exactly sure where i'm supposed to post this but i'm new to this forum and i was hoping some guidance...
I have an account at a Finnish Nintendo site, Which means that i'm Finnish myself, so my english may not be as proper as yours.
I came to this forum in hopes that i would meet some good fellows to share my interests in Nintendo and to share my Friend Code with people
So if anybody wants to add me, just send me a private message so i can add you to my 3DS Friend List
Thank you kindly!

You could start out by posting your own individual thread in this sub-forum instead of making the post here.
:P
That way people can greet you individually.

How much did that little buy cost? Lol, is there even enough space on the home screen to fit every game?
Welcome to the forums, by the way, why not create your own introduction thread?
