Negative World Version 2.0 is now live!

What is the Negative World? you may ask. The Negative World is a Nintendo site run by the fans, for the fans. We started up back in 2001 or so based on an outcry for a Nintendo site not plagued with constant bickering and arguments, and have been going strong ever since. Instead of having a bunch of crazy moderators telling everyone what they can and can't do (and crazy trolls ruining the experience for everyone,) we have a core group of ever-expanding users that sets the course for the site. We believe this approach to a video game forum makes for the best user experience in the end.

Also, it's a lot more damn fun.

But we are not accepting new members as of yet. I know, I know... the public is banging on our doors, but we are working hard to make sure Version 2.0 will be perfectly squeaky clean when we finally start accepting new members again.

I still remember Crocomire greeting me to these boards back when I was one of the early members. He should come back--he's a classy guy.

We should trade up to Croco. Now that's a classy guy.

Absolutely dapper.

Lets maybe change the thread title to reflect the fact that this is old, just so there is no confusion. Can we add a [Retro] or [Old] tag?

I dunno, then we will have to change titles for every old post that gets bumped...

Not every thread implies something has changed with the entire site as a whole. I feel this is a special case.

So what version are we on now?

Hmm I dunno, I think that would set an odd precedence though. Changing titles to make them seem current.

Eh whatev. I'm just trying to prevent confusion in this singular instance. And I change thread titles to correct their meaning sometimes. Usually my own or when a "prep-hype" thread reaches it's threshold (such as my Hyrule Historia thread).

I have to ask as a somewhat new member what happened back in 2001 that got the site started? Because the idea that Crashman/NinSage had with Wiiaredeep now Nintemple.com really only got kicked off after E3 2008 and all the vile stuff that was happening at the time and a need for a change in the gaming community as a whole.

@NinTemple_Maxi I don't remember if it was 2001 exactly, but somewhere around there. But it didn't turn into "Negative World" until a bit later.

It kind of morphed a lot over the years. Somewhere in there it became pretty obvious that the bigger sites weren't going to work for Nintendo fans.

So, when is the mobile version going up? I can't browse NW for a damn on my phone.

Gosh I don't even know. Realistically? Spring / Summer.

I thought we were getting a newer version... I wouldn't mind some kind of rating system for each post or maybe jsut a thumbs up or down kinda thing added. Animated gif icons hehe. Everything else I'm pretty happy with
