“I’m sorry to hear that you’ve experienced difficulties with using Club Nintendo.

We are currently doing maintenance on the Club Nintendo site which should resolve any problems you’ve experienced.

I understand how excited Nintendo fans can get about cool new things. I understand that club Nintendo’s servers were probably overwhelmed, but come on Nintendo you should know us better then that. Once again Nintendo you have underestimated you fan bass.
