    Every 3DS game now has a place you can talk about it. Go to our full list of 3DS games, click a game and you should see a text box to start a conversation in. I've only just finished putting it together so I hope some of you in here can start the conversations going.

    I thought I'd finished getting it to work 3 hours ago, then I released it didn't work with games which have an apostrohphe in the title (don't ask why). I've fixed that but if you spot any other problems, please let me know.

    It didn't work with games that didn't have apostrophes in them?! I was laughing so hard when you read that (I just like random humor)! I'll see what it's like (I bet it will be good)!

    Wow, that looks great, Adam! I've found one issue with the feature so far, though: I'm unable to edit any of the comments made on games, including my own (I'm also unable to approve certain comments; I have no idea why). I'm also still missing the permissions to edit your posts.

    Here's a little suggestion, btw: how about adding a widget in the sidebar (or some code on the games page) that lists the most recent comments on the site (or just on the games)?

    Are you able to edit comments on normal posts? Maybe a Wordpress update has changed permissions of editors or something. I'll look into it again.

    I've never liked those side bar widgets showing latest comments. It's usually only a few words of a comment and those few words rarely grab my attention enough to want to read the full thing. Then again, for people who come here daily and want to see where there are new comments, it could be a useful feature. I'll have a think about it.
