having trouble ? look here for answers :)

    Are you a newcomer ? If so then there are many people who just like you , have some very intricate questions that you would like a simple answer to these .

    I am writing this dedicated to you guys who are having such a trouble .

    So what are PLAY COINS and HOW DO I EARN THEM ?
    Typically , Play Coins are the currency used in this site , 3ds Pedia .
    So they can be redeemed to get many items like In-Game items like Pokemon Stuff , Animal Crossing Stuff and even Nintendo eShop cards . Sure this is the part where you get super excited to this place and want to start immediately .

    - So people tell you that play coins are earned by posting quality posts in the forums right ? sounds simple enough . but then when you posted something you realized you still had 0 play coins right ? Here are some of the reasons why :

    • You may have posted not enough for the system to credit you . Write with thought and reach about 3-4 lines . Try to enjoy this . Don't spam or just write to get coins
    • Making threads in the forums don't give you points . Replying to forums will .
    • Some Places won't give play coins for posting there , like the Mayor's Office tab list .
    - So now that this happens you now then realize that it is going to take you months to reach that goal . So now what ? This point you feel pretty discouraged right ? but then you must realize that nothing in this world is free and not everything can be obtained in a short amount of time .

    - This point many users just leave the place and then never return . You don't have to be like them . Are you a Nintendo Fan ? then you must realize that the place where you are now is the only place where you can enjoy what you like while having a long term goal of this place . You won't find any other place like this but some dumb site that wants you to do impassable surveys .

    Here are some ways you can actually enjoy this site :

    • Start by interacting with other users and share some of your interest in certain games and exchange friend codes
    • Have a little nice chat in the ShoutBox
    • Enter fun contest and giveaways to increase your earnings
    • Start customizing yourself and put your Profile Pic and etc.
    • Share your thoughts on new games and different forums
    • Have fun !
    - It is the motivation in people that makes people very successful in terms and certain conditions and soon you too will realize that its that way too . You don't have to be on this site 24/7 just set maybe a goal and let this be a secondary task . Let's say you set that you want 10 play coins in a day . Good then ! you won't get it now but someday you will .

    I hope you enjoyed reading this and I hope it may help some of you with just getting to know the site . Thanks and Good Luck !

    Personal Notes :
    I remember when I first signed up to this place , I was confused honestly . So I just left the place ... One day , I went to just periodically check my email and noticed the 3ds pedia confirmation email . I decided to come back and when it was that moment I earned my very first 3 PC was the beginning of my posting spree ! so never lose hope ;)
