New Management


As of October 4th, 2017 Plaza has got itself a brand new admin!
NodePoint is our new admin and he's already been quite busy in the short time he's been admin.

Since the 4th he's:
- Updated chat rules, MOTD and changelog.
- Replaced smile system for chat for better accuracy.
- Emoticon reference page has list of usable emoticons in PC version of the chat.
- Added new and old emoticons.
- In-chat BBCode support added for chat moderators.
- Custom in-chat icons for certain users.
- Added auto-hyperlinking support to chat.
- Restored PM delete utility and added it to pm page.
- Added more domains to blacklist for account approval tool.
- Fixed time ago in profiles. ( Now displays months and years. )
- Corrected spacing in profiles.
- Profiles now have '.subusrinfocon' ( Information before 'About me.' ) -- can be styled.
- Fixed blacklash issue, typos, toggle in profile editor.
- Fixed PM outbox.
- Management tool improved.
- Updated register page to ask for acceptance of chat and forum rules. ( With checkbox. )
- Security fixes.

And I'm sure there's much more to come.
In my personal opinion, NodePoint as admin is the start of a new beginning for Plaza that will bring some life back to it and I'm not alone, so far, quite a few users have agreed that Node's promotion is the best bet for Plaza and are looking forward to seeing what else he has in store for the site.

Good day to you all. Today, January 31st, exactly six years ago, 3DSPlaza.com was founded. Throughout six years many users have joined and left, and I know some of you have been here for years now.

I would like to thank you all for being a part of 3DSPlaza. You are the reason that 3DSPlaza is still online. Although the Nintendo 3DS system itself has decreased in popularity, and many 3DS related websites have died down completely, 3DSPlaza has to this day remained to be an active community.

I have a small gift for you, that is a throwback to the old "nostalgia" 3DSPlaza times. I'm doing a throwback to the very beginnings of 3DSPlaza, by bringing back an old 3DSPlaza app, namely Jolly Jokes!



This was one of the very first 3DSPlaza apps, but it broke at some point way back in time and has not worked since. Maybe some of the very old users will recognize the app when they open it.

I have left the app exactly the way it was before it crashed. Even the original jokes from before it crashed are still there.




Now, for the plans of the future: there is probably no denying that 3DSPlaza will continue to slowly keep declining in usage. I'm not sure how much longer the site will still be actively used, but I at least plan to keep 3DSPlaza the way it is as long as that's the case. The Nintendo Switch is the next upcoming Nintendo thing of course, although I do not think that I'll be developing a website for the Nintendo Switch. I do have plans for another community website like 3DSPlaza, but it would not be Nintendo-related.

For now, let's celebrate the fact that 3DSPlaza already exists for six years and counting!

Happy anniversary,
Rob

Greetings everyone,

Some of you may already be aware, but I'd just like to officially inform you all of the details of a recent tweak in the way some moderators will be moderating:

Chat Moderators are no longer required to issue a warning for the following offenses:

- Swearing or bypassing the automatic swearing censor
- Sharing links to explicit NSFW or other adult/illegal content
- Spamming/flooding with malicious intent
- Online dating and/or cybering
- Sharing personal information

[Hypothetically] Repeated offenses within a week's time from your ban may result in a longer ban time than before.

Moderators are not strictly obligated to withhold warnings for these offenses--they may warn if they feel compelled to, however I wouldn't count on it.




But Why?


I think it doesn't need to be said, that deliberately bypassing the swearing censor is against the rules (as are any of the other offenses that are listed above). Warnings should be a notice to let users know when they've crossed a line that they might not be aware of...such as getting too rude during a disagreement, or bringing up an inappropriate topic, or violating other subjective rules. It's to let the user know what the moderator on duty considers to be a violation of those rules...unlike a violation like bypassing, which isn't in any way subjective.

"But what if I accidentally bypass?"
You shouldn't be swearing to begin with (note the rules). Accidentally hitting a double letter in a swear word that would result in bypassing the censor doesn't mean you're inherently innocent...Mods still have grounds to ban you for "accidental bypasses" since you shouldn't be swearing. The only reason mods don't warn when we see a misplaced smiley face, is because the smiley is also a harmless emoji that can be placed without swearing...so we can't know what the original context was.

If you somehow manage a freak accidental bypass that wasn't intended to be a swear at all, I'm sure the moderators will be competent enough to recognize that it was an honest accident and leave you alone.


It's hardly much of a change that will affect the most of you at all, unless you're an avid deliberate rule-breaker.

Before I start, I would like to note that it is planned to unsticky this thread in the near future as everyone around the time this got posted got the message anyway. Perhaps by the end of September 21st 2016.
Unstickied.
Hello, users of 3DSPlaza. It has been a while.
This thread will be about a security vulnerability that got fixed very recently and what should be done to reduce the risk as a result of it.
Do read on for more details.
What is going on here?
Around a month ago, a security vulnerability was discovered in the comment system that made SQL injections possible. More preciously, in the comment viewer (status and profile, both shared). This would use a GET query to get the table name and then put it into a query (note that it is arbitrary) and that would be the hole.

Why should I care / how severe is this?
This allowed the ability to grab system and other information such as user credentials, generic user data (email, IPs, points, privileges), misc data. Basically, access to all information stored on 3DSPlaza's database and possibly other databases that are not to do with 3DSPlaza.
It is not known for sure if anyone discovered this previously and stored the captured information for malicious usage later on. There is a chance that is the case, however.
Considering that it had been vulnerable ever since it was first built (presumably back in 2011), it would be a bit of a risk to look away pretending that you have not read this thread.

Am I at risk?
Anyone is. Or at least, the more older users are. More details are in the next section.

What should I do?
** If you have not changed your password before the date 14/04/16 (dd/mm/yy) then it's advised that you change your password. **
You would be more prone to having your current login credentials being in any SQL dumps in any shape or form that might have been created before that date.
Again, there is a chance that this might have happened.

Created an account on or after that date? You are fine. Just ensure that your password is not something as simple as a usernane.
(The date mentioned is put a little later than when the tests got performed and when it got patched because of the time zones, FYI.)
The passwords are hashed in such a way here that you most likely do not need to worry about changing it on external sites if you are using the same one on those for whatever reason. You might decide to do so anyway which would most certainly be a wise move.

What if I choose to ignore what you said?
It is not mandatory, looking at how not so visible the vulnerable script location was.
Not ignoring would ensure that the account is secure enough.
Your account, your choice.

I have a few banned accounts but because of account switches. Should I take action on those?
If you do plan on switching back, go ahead. Banned users can perform some actions but their actions will not do anything major so do not worry if those do happen to get compromised.

My account got compromised because of a method related to this. Help?
The password cannot be changed unless the one accessing the account knows the password in plaintext (AKA the original).
So essentially, you would still be able to access your account and lock the hacker out by simply changing the password to something else that cannot be guessed so easy (something other than reordering your username as your password).
EDIT (30/06/16): It was discovered that passwords can still be changed once the account has been obtained. Change your password if this could affect you. The ID for that issue would be PZ2 (awaiting contact with administration).
EDIT (04/06/16): PZ2 has been patched. Email changes now requires current password.

I have a question / comment ...
Sure. State what you have in mind below and I will try to clarify things. I don't expect everyone to understand some of the technical terms mentioned here right off the bat.
Note that some details will not be provided in regards to this for reasons.

I do not understand what you are saying. Simplify? / Can not be bothered reading all of that. / Tell me in short.
Too Long; Did not Read! If you created your account or last changed your password before 14/04/16 (dd/mm/yy), you might want to consider changing your password just to ensure that your account is secure as it can be.
To reclarify: this has already been patched. Vulnerabilities such as these will never be publicly disclosed unless they get resolved or if they are way less severe.
This entire post is about what might have happened during the time of when it could be attacked and how to deal with it.

Account Switch Request Form Announcement

Username changing is a common occurrence here on Plaza. But in order to "change your username", creating a new account is the only option to do so. This requires flagging down a moderator to ask for permission...then they have to go out of their way to accept your new account and ban your previous one. It can be a bit of a hassle for both parties...until now~

Theguyryanb977 has provided us with Plaza Account Switch Request (PASR) forms...a convenient tool to use to register for an account switch.
Simply enter your username into the form, then enter the new username that you registered to be accepted. Moderators can review the requests and will check your IP and/or email to be sure the request is legitimate, if all checks out, they can then accept your new account on Plaza! There's no more need to try to catch a mod at the "right time" or go through the hassle of explaining everything...just submit your request and wait for it to be reviewed.

Because mods are wary of unapproved alts or spammers joining Plaza, many suspicious accounts get declined without question. Often enough, some suspicious accounts are actually just users attempting to account switch. This tool should prevent your new account from being suspected as an unapproved alt, plus it's much easier on mods.


Check out Ryan's announcement in his thread here.




Please note that PASR is not directly affiliated with 3DSPlaza.com and is a separate entity provided for the use of 3DSPlaza users.

It's about time. Not only were they spam grounds, if they weren't being spammed, they were completely empty.

Hello everyone! Exciting news I bring you. And yes some of you already know. The 3DSPlaza Register Panel has now been re-opened (AGAIN).

But Nuenez is still out there. So dont expect a pm with NSFW content or spams on your profile. To prevent this, go to Forum thread: 81470. Special Thanks to KingMarc

So. Yeah it's re-opened......again. Thanks Rob/SL.

Good day everyone and Good night.

According to The Verge, Minecraft Story Mode will be heading to the WiiU. While it isn't a main core Minecraft game, it will still be the first appearence of the series on a Nintendo console. The game is set to debut later this year.

Could this mean a main game is in works for the WiiU? Or to be coming for the NX? Comment your thoughts below!

This week has been a very exciting week for Smash players! Many rumors has been circulating the internet about Shovel Knight being in Super Smash Bros. First off, a Spanish retailer listed a Shovel Knight amiibo ready for pre-order. But later, Yacht Club Games quickly turned down the rumor. Then other retailers around the world followed. Then on their Twitter and official website saying, "This next week is sure to be an exciting one, including the MEGATON reveal we promised…"

So with PAX Prime being this weekend and Smash Bros will be playable there, so... What do you think? Excited? Leave thoughts!

This thread will serve as a petition to make MarioErmando an admin here on 3DSPlaza. If you agree, then click the appreciation button (the +) at the top of this thread to sign.

I believe MarioErmando would be a great addition to the team. He has developed PlazaTools, a browser extension for 3DSPlaza that adds new features, a cSplit generator that was later integrated into the chat, developed an unofficial chatlog for the chat rooms here, and a long time ago, he created a website similar to 3DSPlaza, 3DSFun.

Also, 3DSPlaza hasn't had any major events or updates since the Christmas event of 2013. Rob and SomeLuigi do not do much here anymore, however I'm not saying to get rid of SomeLuigi. Ermando is dedicated to what he does, and does stuff for us all in his free time. 3DSPlaza needs to get regular updates again, like every other website.

I hope you guys can keep this thread alive so Rob and SomeLuigi can see it and consider it. Also, if you can, please tell Rob and SL, but don't bug them about it. I also decided to make this because people have always been saying he should become admin, and now would be a good time.

The eleventh installment in the Dragon Quest series, Dragon Quest XI, was just officially announced by Square Enix earlier today. The game is planned to release on the 3DS, PS4, and NX. Making it the first Nintendo NX game to be announced.

Dragon Quest X, which came out a while ago, was released on the Wii, Wii U, 3DS, and PC, but was never localized and remained a Japan exclusive. The game will most likely not get localized so we'll hope Square Enix hears our pleas with XI.

Satoru Iwata, now former president of Nintendo, passed away yesterday. Nintendo claims he died from a 'bile duct growth.' Among other things, he was of course famous for overseeing the Nintendo Direct presentations and would often display hardware and software with Shigeru Miyamoto. Prayers and best wishes to his family and close friends.

'Please Understand.'

Me and Sackacuga are hosting a crew battle for Super Smash Bros Wii U. If you don't know what a crew battle is, look at this:

PLEASE READ BEFORE TRYING TO JOIN show

A crew battle is a form of competition between two teams. Each team starts out with the same number of stocks, which is usually divided evenly between the members of a team. For example, a SSB4 crew battle with five members on each team might have 15 stocks per team, 3 for each member.
Players from the opposing teams then take turns fighting in 1v1 matches, with the winner of a match carrying their remaining stock(s) to face the next member of the opposing team. Stocks lost by the victorious player in a previous match are subtracted from the player's stocks by self-destructing at the beginning of the next match.

Ex: If Player A defeated the other team's Player B with two stock remaining, then Player A would advance to the next match and would need to SD 1 stock during the beginning of the match with Player C, who starts with full stocks (3 stocks). This continues until one crew completely runs out of stocks, in which case the other crew is the victor.

Video Ex: Skip to 6:55. The only difference is that the players in the event we are doing will be starting out with 3 stocks each, not 4 as shown in the video.




Rules:
-3 stocks (when entering your first match), 8 minutes
-Custom moves and equipment are off
-Handicap is off
-Items are off
-Mii's are banned
-Stages that can be picked are Final Destination, Battlefield, and Smashville.



Hosts / TO's:
Gold
Sackacuga

Commentators:
Sackacuga
TLEReborn

The 2 crews

1. Username: braxtonhi
NNID: braxtonhi
Character: Zero Suit Samus

2. Username: TLEReborn
NNID: TLEwiiu
Character: Mega Man

3. Username: Perfect_Chaos
NNID: chaoszeroe

4. Username: Arcanine

Character: Roy

5. Username: BioMan8
NNID: BionicBrother
Character: Jigglypuff

6. Username: TetrisDude335
NNID: TetrisDude335
Character: Lucas

Me and Sack tried to balance out the crews, so you weren't put in a crew at random. However, the order in which you play for your crew was chosen at complete random. Also, the number by your name is the order you're going in for your crew. It is not some sort of ranking.

IF YOUR TEAMMATE DOES NOT SHOW UP / LEAVES show

If your teammate doesn't show up at all:
If your teammate does not show up within 10 to 15 mins, a lv. 9 CPU will take his or her place. The CPU will be chosen at random.

If the CPU advances:
If the CPU advances to the next round, the player who has control of the rules will have to choose the CPU character that the random button chose last match. If the CPU has lost some stocks, then the CPU will be set to 3 stock (cause it has to) and the match will end when the number of actual stocks from the CPU gets taken away by the opponent. The game will not count this as the end of the match, so the players will click no contest.


Everyone who is participating must add Sackacuga, as he will be hosting all of the rooms for the crew battle. His NNID is SackThing.

The character you've choosen cannot be changed anymore.



Prize:
I have PM'd SomeLuigi and asked him if the winners of this event can receive this icon by their username in the chats for a month:

We will wait and see if he agrees. If he doesn't, we will have to decide another prize.

Update: Robdeprop has agreed to this.



Date the crew battle starts: July 17 at 4 PM PST (which is 5 PM MST, 6 PM CST, and 7 PM EST) If you live outside of the U.S, you will have to do your time conversions on your own.

Where: http://twitch.tv/sackacuga



Important: As you may know, EVO starts on July 17. That was the day the crew battle was suppose to begin. We would like to know if you guys still want to do it on that date, or if you wanted it pushed back a week to July 24. Vote here. The poll will be closed on July 9.

Update: As of July 9, the poll is now closed. 3 people voted for July 24, and 4 voted for July 17 so we're doing the event on July 17.

Posted on 2015-07-04 03:01:26 by Gold

In an interview with Sakurai, he confirms that Roy, Ryu, and Lucas were not fan demand, in fact, they were all in development before he opened the ballot. So he confirms that the team will now be on fan service! So expect a few more characters!

So get out there, and cast your vote!

Today, Nintendo has updated their Miiverse policy, and the change isn't good at all.

The only thing they changed is about Nintendo Network IDs sharing the same Wii U.

If a Nintendo Network ID has been banned from using Miiverse, all other accounts linked with the same banned ID will also be banned, no matter when and what device you created your ID, if you share a Wii U with a banned ID, you will also be banned.

So what do you think? Is it fair? Leave thoughts!

UPDATE
The rumor has been de-confirmed by a Nintendo representative. The Nintendo NX will NOT have Android.

Source: Nintendo Life

Original Article
A Japanese publication might have revealed a bit of information about the Nintendo NX operating system. And that OS is Google's Android.

Of course this is just a rumor, so there will be no official statement until Nintendo reveals more info about the NX next year.

What do you think? Do you hope for Nintendo to use the OS?
