Note from the Editor – October 2017

Hey everyone, thought I would quickly post an update on what’s been happening recently.

As you may be aware, NintyBuzz has been pretty quiet over the past couple weeks, and this time with good explanation funnily enough. Towards the end of September, I happened to be a victim of fraud, which temporarily froze my cards, which meant I couldn’t renew my hosting costs. This led to NintyBuzz going down for a few days. Turns out, the reseller I was with also wasn’t able to pay their hosting costs and they seemed to not be responding to my emails and messages, so I then ended up paying the actual hosting company to extend it by a month.

Once we got back online however, all of a sudden I was completely blocked out from NintyBuzz, the only way I could access the site was pretty much at my local Starbucks. So I started to look for a new hosting company, bearing in mind I was also stressing out to the fact that I am having some pretty bad money issues at the moment, and my depression has been through the roof. I found a new host however, who are pretty cheap and seemed suitable for NintyBuzz at this time. Of course, I ended up running into various frustrations when transferring everything over (to be frank, SQL is pretty awful when it breaks).

The good news however, we are finally back online. Though I am getting fairly busy with university work, I am going to try my best to bring us back up to date, starting with dropping a couple of reviews I wrote locally over the weekend.

Unfortunately this means that I will have to postpone the Splatoon 2 Tournament until a later date when I have a more stable income, I deeply apologise for this.

I would, however, like to give a massive thanks to all those who have supported me recently, even if it’s just positive words, you do not realise how much it helps when motivation is at a minimum. I would also love to thank those at Nintendo and Pretty Green for being patient with us. And finally I would like to say thank you to all those who viewed our Super Mario Odyssey preview video, already it has gathered 10K views, which makes me happier than Happierre (there’s a hint for one of the reviews coming soon).

So, until next time,
Keep on Buzzin’!

About the Author:

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!
