Just wondering if the accents on the "D" and "S" are intentional and in conjunction with the Nintendo's recent release of the DS commercials. It seems like a pretty seamless and automatic code(?), definitely cool. :D

I must say I find it very distracting. If that was the goal, then you have succeeded, Mr. Zimmerman.

While it's annoying...if it brings money into the board, I say, there is arent's any distinct disadvantages to the decision for the idea. IF they get paid for every DS thats out...perhaps we can all be a bit more descriptive, and discuss things furhter. :-)

How many is that? :-) heheh

Good call if it's an income garnering idea. Just, PLEASE...don't use those terrible roll-over URLs like they have on IGN -- they're very distracting.

EDIT: Noticed an error: the DS code won't work if the word is dangerously close to the margin, at least on my screen, at my resolution (800*600). Hence forth why the word DISADVANTAGE on the first paragraph isn't formatted.

I'm actually disgusted with the display of audacious hedonism on the part of our moderators. Their distinctive display of advertising distorts the destiny of the disproportionately desultory dialogues that appear here at times.

I like my Thesaurus.

Wow - how come it missed some of them?

I've discovered all of your DS's in what one could call, say, dispute?

Now, from my laptop computer -- not the desktop -- are the undecideds going to disembowel this thread... or will they come to the conclusion that they're going to buy a DS if a discount is displayed?

P.S. -- You're despicable. ;)

I've never really understood this type of marketing. The more overpowering something is the more annoying it gets. Especially things like this. This isn't a knock on the Zims for letting Nintendo in the door, it's a knock on Nintendo's marketing department. Do these guys really believe that if one of their marketing execs came unannounced and moved into my house and randomly bugged me to buy the DS that I'd be more motivated to buy it?

So far I've seen it here and wwe.com. Anyone see it anywhere else?

Also, I must say that Nintendo's marketing department missed the ball on this one. I understand they're trying to get the new brand out there but I'm less likely to buy it now then I was before just for Nintendo annoying me.

If you were REALLY going to let an ad campaign determine whether you buy a somewhat expensive portable video game system, then I would have to think that you weren't going to buy it anyways.

Ooooh, DiSss!

I was actually on the fence about it because I really don't need it but I have a closet full of tech junk that I didn't need.

I'm discouraged by my discovery of the DS marketing strategy/ If I'm going to have to put up with this on multiple websites, its going to really annoy me, especially EARLY IN THE MORNING! :)

If the Zims get a free DS out of it, then I say more power to 'em ... although I notice that on my browser (don't know if it affects everyone else), the paragraphs and font changes (color/size/etc) are thrown all out of whack when the DS images appear.

Jumping Jesus on a pogo stick!

I thought I caught some sort or extremely annoying virus after just today getting my computer back up and running.

You had me freaking out here, just so you know.

Good one! You got me.

I'm not sure where to post on this. I'm trying to avoid typing something with DS in them so I don't have to have my brain go into overdrive to decipher these posts on this message board. Anyways, I agree with some of the posts, exactly how long is this going to be featured on the site?
