    Welcome to the new Wii U Forums!

    If you haven't already heard, WiiUDaily.com and WiiUForums.com have joined forces as the #1 Wii U News and Forum combination on the planet. We have JUST converted WiiUDaily Forums into the new WiiUForums site and software and we appreciate your patience as we iron some things out.

    Important to know:
    • Wii U Daily users will need to reset their password. You will need to try to log in, basically. It will tell you that you have failed, and you will need to click the link to have an email sent to you for the reset.
    • Wii U Daily users will also need to reset their avatars

    We know there are still some layout, organization, and formatting issues that need to be fixed so please let us know your thoughts below! We'll continue to try and improve this site to make it the best we can for the community!

    Additional info here: Welcome to the new Wii U Forums!

    This is great! Pretty neat forums if I do say so myself. I hope to be active around this new-fangled layout and find it easy to adjust... gosh, it feels like I became a new member all over again!

    Just wanted to say a couple things while the developers catch their breath and we get a little feedback.

    1) Staff things. I know a moderator came from WiiDaily. Please bear with us while we get stuff sorted. We will get you moved to staff shortly, hopefully by morning. Let me know though, have you worked with VB software before? In addition, we will see how active the forum is as things level off and evaluate addition staff needs as appropriate.

    2) Structure of the site. Are there any forums or category additions or changes you might request? We are happy to consider suggestions and work with the new community. We are pretty careful with what we add though, so be sure to really think through suggestions before posting. Feel free to suggest minor, even major category and forum changes. If it makes sense to us as a positive thing to do, we'll do it.

    3) Again, like Rob said - WiiUDaily users will need to RESET their passwords, not create new accounts. Avatars will need to be re-uploaded.

    4) I know signatures were a hot issue. We moved them the best we could. We will make signature guidelines clear with purpose and intention explained.

    5) Notification systems. We still need to get something in place for this. Likes or Thanks system, something will come..

    Bear with us while we continue this process. Please let us know any bugs or feedback you have, and welcome to wiiuforums.com!

    Well, speaking of bugs... I'm not sure if this is a glitch or I did something wrong, but it frequently says I was "banned for no specified reason." I didn't mean to do anything wrong!

    Really? Can you recreate it at all, make it happen on purpose? If so, what are you doing to make it happen?

    Well, it seemed to stop, but it would happen whenever I would click on certain links.

    It took me a while to figure out how to even reset my password so I could log in. You might want to update the original post with instructions on how to do that to help out the poor Wii U Daily forum people.

    I don't know if this is the best way to do it, but I just clicked the Log in button, and when it wouldn't let me log in, I clicked the I forgot my password link. Then I entered my registered email address along with the answer to the random question, and I was emailed instructions on how to reset my password. But it's not very intuitive that we are told everywhere we look to reset our password, but nowhere are we told how to do that.

    What do you mean, it redirects here and they should see the link to the announcement at the top, yes?

    Well, I have that problem too. Thing is I can't post a screenshot without it being too big to exceed the size or too little to read. It says the Inbox and Sent are empty, but there are tons of "invisible messages".
