    Official Update About the Site 2

    Hi everyone,

    First of all, I would like to once again thank you for your patience in regards to the forum changeover. It's been a long time overdue I know, but let me just tell you that your patience is well worth the wait.

    That being said, I must unfortunately announce that we are once again delaying the site reconstruction to a Switch forum. The site dev has been extremely busy over at AndroidForums.com turning it into a fully fledged mobile app (à la Tapatalk) along with a full site overhaul. Inevitably, this has slowed down momentum for other projects. At the end of the day, it is important to make sure that the new Switch Forums have the same level of quality as the current site and to do so we just need some time.

    I kindly ask that you please understand the necessity of this delay.

    Cheers,

    Max

    P.S. Just to clarify this, there are no plans for a mobile or app version of this site at the time. For now, that is only an Android Forums project.

    So this is real? Why couldn't they just take an hour or two to change the name at the top of the forums and redirect it to a new URL until they get the time to do the major overhaul? Every day of this, they're losing out on this forum growing because people aren't searching for Wii U forums.

    I'm not interested in reading posts of new members anyway.

    Cut them some slack, they'd have to change the color to red too.

    I'm not really interested in having a custom app. That's kind of reinventing the wheel, since we have Tapatalk support. It's much more important to get the name changed over, and get some SEO for the Switch on the site. But it doesn't matter what I think. I have Adblock Plus turned on, anyway.

    I don't believe there are any plans for a WUF app.

    Well, you asked a day or two ago if we would be interested in an app, and then your OP said they're working on converting the Android forums to an app. I misread it to say they want this site to be the same level of quality as the Android site, but I see now that they just want it to be the same level of quality as what this site already is.

    Well, then just change the name, and make some subforums for the Switch similar to the Wii U's subforums. Throw some Switch SEO on the page, and redirect to a new Nintendo Today Forums URL. I think you could do that in a day or less.

    I'm with you on that one, it's honestly not that resource intensive of a job, to be honest. If we behind this it would have been renamed as soon as we knew the console name. Unfortunately, there's not much we can do on our end for now.

    Trust me when I say it's bothering me too.

    An old coworker did that once at work. He was in the middle of talking to a customer, sneezed, and then turned around and looked at all of us with a worried look. He then walked over to our manager and whispered, "I have to go home because I shit my pants."

    I'm guessing her roommate is also suffering from Bad Breath of The Wild?

    Well, my thing is that the longer they wait the more Switch forums will pop up. Trust me. I was a moderator on a small forums for an MMO game. It was a big MMO game, but our forums was created too late to really make an impact since there were a ton of other sites for that game. Then a new MMO came out, our owner created a forums for it and now he is probably literally rich. He made a lot of money off of it and we had a ton of members.

    I don't care so much as long as the forum stays in some form. I just think we need another admin, one that is more active when needed. Plus just having this a general Nintendo forum would probably be just as good of an idea as a Switch forum.

    He's probably saying something along the lines of "Why did I ever start this Forum?"

    You have to remember something exists before questioning why you started it.
