    Disclaimer:
    Yes I'm sorry, I haven't posted a noob question since before I came to realize to not ever do that on GBATemp. A mod may move or delete this as nessessary I just have to ask this

    My question:
    Ok so, I've got 2 different NNID's. Both are really horribly named

    They are actually named with random letters and numbers as so: "Sildh826gduidIndk" or "GbduaI792hwb".

    This makes it really hard to give people my FC on wiiu and miiverse.

    So......... Is there a way with the recent SDK and Miiverse Administrative tools that I can change them? Thanks a ton! Any helped is thanked! :)

    Pretty sure it's impossible, just make new accounts

    How is your NNID related to the SDK (Software Development Kit)? =_=

    There is no way to change your NNID besides making a new one and the SDK has nothing to do with your profile at all

    There is a miiverse SDK

    I would but I'd loose all my games and friends that I've been getting since when the wiiu and 3ds were made

    England I guess
    Yes, but that SDK doesn't edit NNIDs, etc.

    This is a prime example of what not to do when Nintendo asks you "Are you sure you want to have this as your NNID"

    I believe though that it could do plenty more with NNID accounts, am I wrong?

    Your 3DS friends can't actually see your NNID, and you can change your displayed nickname on the 3DS. You can also make a new NNID while keeping your friends list if your 3DS is hacked, but if you purchased any eShop games they will no longer be "legit" since they are no longer linked to your eShop account. It's a bit harder on the Wii U side, but I believe you can log into two NNIDs at the same time on Wii U, so you can make a new one and get all your friends to add it, and keep the old one linked just for the games on it.

    I'm pretty sure you can call Nintendo and have them change it

    You can not change it, with the SDK or otherwise.
