    I'm new to the system, and I'm confused. I got 11 people tagged, but when I tagged somebody yesterday. my Plaza gate had 100 mii's in there. I was shocked. All of them were tagged 3 days ago, but I had my 3DS off for the whole day.
    WATS GOING ON>?

    Certain games, like Mario Kart 7, will FLOOD your plaza with Miis. You were probably playing one of those games.

    Ohh, thanks, I didn't know about this, haha.
    Mario Kart 7 is the reason.

    Theres a cap at 10 people you can physically streetpass in one sweep so it was probably through an online game where you met that many mii's

    Yeah, that happened to me too the first time I played MK7 :P I think Kid Icarus might do this too, but I'm not really sure.

    Throwing milk at the bitches!
    If a wi-fi game involves using your miis data in anyway, like MK7 using your Mii as a racer or KI:U using you Mii to determine your fighter's color in FFA, it will download that miis data to your 3DS. If you set Spotpass on in Street pass plaza it will show up there. An easy way to determine if a game is going to dump mii data, is to look for the Nintendo Network logo on it since games that use that system are usually intergrated with most of the 3DS services (DLC, communities, in-game friends lists, etc.)

    it's a shame you can't use those miis on streetpass quest or puzzle, you could complete the whole game multiple times over :)
