So I noticed some complaints about the quotes feature, and plan to overhaul it, but since I might have a different idea than the rest of the community and don't have especially strong opinions about it, I decided to start this up instead and get some input. Feel free to just vote and leave, but posting will help me understand where you're coming from more and possibly persuade me to your side. Note that no matter what, political quotes, religious quotes, or quotes in any other way relating to ones lifestyle will not be allowed. It's meant to be a fun thing, not meant to spark offense in any way. There's no need to use it as a way to shove your views down someone else's throat.

Just to recap the poll, here are the questions:

Should the quotes feature be kept?

Should the quotes be limited to gaming?

Should the current quotes be purged?

As for that last one, if quotes are chosen to be limited to gaming, there will be a purge, although I admit that I'm currently leaning to allowing quotes to not be related to gaming, so I'm going to need some convincing on that front. As for why I'm asking, it's because there are currently a ton of quotes, and it could definitely use some cleaning, especially since some of the quotes were entered incorrectly.

Finally, as a side thing, please report all incorrectly quoted quotes or all that go against the no political, religious, or lifestyle quotes rule. Be as specific as possible, and copy the text of the exact quote if you can. No one wants to sift through 250+ quotes to find one to fix or delete.

I like the Quotes Feature, there are some real funny ones in there (and I'm not just talking about the ones I posted), plus overall they usually send a positive message and make me feel better if I was having a bad day.

Should it be kept: No. While it was neat at first, now it kind of looks awkward and strange just to have these random quotes up in the upper-right corner of the forum.

Should the quotes be limited to gaming: This is assuming that the quotes will be kept. No, we should be able to have quotes about anything I suppose. Nintendo was never limited to gaming - take love hotels and card games as an example.

Should the current quotes be purged: Yes. They have become tiresome and annoying.

Not that it looks awkward on the upper right corner. It's just seeing the same quotes over and over. As I agree of how it looks neat but after, it' just tiring and killing all the sayings from games, etc. Like for example: "I wanna be the very best." It was interesting at first but now, seeing it so much and now as I said, it's just killing it.

I always see how quotes are just quotes no matter if it's from gaming, or whatever. You seem them everywhere. So why limited just to games, when you see more than just that around.

I miss the calender more. It was quite useful than this quoting system. And to me, I never get tired of knowing what's happening.

I'm pretty sure that I can't do anything about the calendar. I'm pretty sure that I don't have directory access, which I would need to add calendars or other applications.

I like the quotes system. I was planning to add Pegasus quotes some time in the future....

Maybe a few new quotes could be added every week to keep things interesting?

I like the system. I'd prefer if we stuck to gaming, which is what I voted for but I couldn't really care either way. Honestly I find that right now it's WAY to full with quotes from TV shows and movies that I don't know anything about so honestly I stopped reading them a long time ago.

I like the quotes from games and quotes of things users on the forum posted. I doubt I'll read the quotes or add to the system if it's open to all quotes since I wouldn't bother reading them if I can't relate to them. So I don't really care what happens with the system at this point.

I don't really care much about quotes one way or the other. But there's always really no need to get rid of it as it really doesn't do any harm.

And I feel quotes should be limited to gaming OR anything regarding NP. And gaming isn't only limited to things in game. It can also include things that talk about games or are related in some way. I just think limiting it some would better help prevent people from making religious/political/lifestyle quotes, as those can be tempting at times. Plus seeing things like "Oink oink - I'm a pig" or something would be weird.

And the quotes do need a good cleaning out.

Though I also like ZSoF's idea he had in his status of having staff manage it. Members can suggest quotes, and whatever staff member is in charge of quotes can approve or disapprove of them.
Or at the very least, we have the quotes purged like every 2-3 months to keep it from piling up.

I'd be perfectly fine with the quote feature being removed. Half the stuff is anonymous sentences that seem like either some kind of inside joke, or just random quotes from obscure youtube videos. At first, it was cool to see the quotes up there because a few were really awesome, but now it's not funny or entertaining. Even if you wiped all the ones we have now to start anew, I feel it would just go down the same path again.

I don't think it's hurting anything, but if you do take it down something else needs to be put up. Maybe like a daily game challenge thing that people can take. That'd be lovely as I like gaming challenges.
