Thanks everyone, I appreciate it. You don't have to donate if you've done it already. You can help me pressure everyone else into donate if you really want to though!
Stopping Nintober when I'm already doing it for a good cause due to another sibling's illness didn't make any sense. Nevertheless it REALLY feels like something out there didn't want me to finish Nintober this year. Well FUCK the fates, I say!

Donated. To be honest, I'm not exactly comfortable with the idea of giving out payment info for something that does not result in me getting something physical.
My original idea was to see whether and how much I should donate depending on who did you draw. Basically, I was looking for a diversity of sources - a whole month's worth of Zelda enemies, for example, would result in me withdrawing any plan to donate (though it doesn't exclude the possibility that I'll give something anyway, because I know you and you're running for a good cause). Sorry if it sounds cruel, but in effect you're optionally selling your work, not unlike those donation-based software.
I decided that it's worth it, after all. But as I want to control my spendings (especially since I currently live in a country where everything is expensive), there's only so much I can give. Hope you don't mind.

Heh. I only just realized that Nintober #101 was from The Wonderful 101.
I would definitely donate, but as I mentioned before, JustGiving doesn't seem to accept any of my payment methods. I don't remember having that issue last year. But I've been re-tweeting and re-blogging everything.
Nintober is over for another year! If you have enjoyed Nintober, then please drop by my JustGiving page and donate a few pounds/dollars/rupees to this great cause. It means a lot to me. Thank you. www.justgiving.com/nintober2013
Nester the Lark: Hello, NinDB world! Post your shouts here! (But be careful not to wake the neighbors. )

nocturnal YL: Guys, guys! I can't believe what I found in Zelda 1! The game features an Elimination Mode that for some reason not many talked about! I wonder if it's fun? (Don't actually try it.)

nocturnal YL: Hey, I can edit shoutbox posts! This is already better than Twitter!

Nester the Lark: It seems like Cadence of Hyrule should be more popular than it is. Are people put off by the rhythm aspect? Or the randomly-generated maps?

nocturnal YL: ↑ Might warrant its own thread, but I think mixing rhythm and other genres usually resuls in gameplay too difficult for many. I can't handle it well either, judging from my scores in Dedede's Drum Dash.

nocturnal YL: ↑ For me personally, it simply hasn't been considered. It's a download-only game (until now) from a series I'm unfamiliar with and didn't feel like trying out.

Nester the Lark: Ironically, I did create a thread for Cadence of Hyrule, but then deleted it thinking there wouldn't be any discussion on it. Maybe I'll go ahead and make a new one.

Shrikeswind: Something to bear in mind about the shoutbox if you’re not already aware: It doesn’t show up on the mobile version of the forums. This shouldn’t be a major problem, but it can make it difficult to get into discussions for mobile visitors.
Jul 26, 2020 1:40:18 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Also the more obvious character limit issues, and the format not really being conducive to longer-term discussion. It’s useful but limited; threads definitely still have their place.

Shrikeswind: (Honestly, Proboards mobile is pretty bad in general, but...)

Nester the Lark: Not sure if this works on all devices, but you can force the desktop version of the forum by scrolling all the way to the bottom and clicking the "Desktop" link at the lower right.

Shrikeswind: I’m aware. I’m typing this from my phone. I’m just pointing out that, for people who aren’t aware or who may be casually checking in on their phone, the shoutbox won’t be visible on

Shrikeswind: Is there a Discord for NinDB, by the way? It’s very popular with them there young’ns these days, so it might help activity.
Jul 26, 2020 22:07:47 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: There is no NinDB Discord. There was a brief discussion of it a few years ago, but nothing ultimately came of it. I rarely use Discord, myself.
Jul 27, 2020 8:58:28 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Hm. Seems like it might be a good idea if activity picks up. Not to be a pessimist but I do have my doubts that'll happen though.

Shrikeswind: Okay not a Nintendo topic but I kinda need to talk about this because I just learned it and it's a thing so bleh.

Shrikeswind: You remember Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame, right? So apparently, 5 year old me was incapable of discerning male and female in non-humans, because *apparently* there's a female gargoyle, and the goat's a boy.
