    Yes it would be a matter of console serial spoofing but no one wants to poke that with a 10 foot rod because random consoles would start to get banned.

    On Wii? No, because the entire WFC service was shut down two years ago. There's no service to be unbanned from.

    I was assuming the post was referring to the official service, not Wiimmfi.

    EDIT: But now checking the rest of the forum, it seems that everything's referring to Wiimmfi without explicitly saying so, so blah. Disregard.

    I found this. I didn't watch it though, maybe outdated, or other bullshit. (First result on Google)
    For more tutorials, look here.

    Maybe its a good idea to rename this sub-forum to something like:
    * Wii - Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection ⇒ Wiimmfi
    * Wii - Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection (nowadays Wiimmfi)

    I don't think it's a good idea to rename the forum's section to a service name.
    The forum is divided in "game, network, hack, homebrew" for all consoles.
    having this section titled "Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection" is just a way to tell users that it's the section talking about all network related subjects (the wifi connection for the console of nintendo), that's not really used to tell who is the (non official) current network owner.
    if it's renamed, it would be something more generic, like "network connection", because what would happen to old thread which were related to nintendo's network which will stay in that section?

    I haven't and I have no problem with the current title. But adding "Wiimmfi" avoids misunderstandings and may lead people to this sub forum (as shown above).

    Wiimmfi is only one of several alternative WFC servers for NDS/Wii -- for instance, there is also AltWFC. Why limit discussion here to just Wiimmfi?

    why not add tags (like the trading forum has) which allow the user to specify which service they are on?

    Go to the sub-forums page and count the topics, that have to to with:
    * Nintendo WFC
    * Wiimmfi
    * Alt-WFC
    Some topics touch 2 or all servers, but >85% talk about Wiimmfi.
    I wonder if Alt-WFC is really active? However, Nintendo WFC is dead.

    My main argument is, to lead Wiimmfi interested people to a Wiimmfi sub-forum, and the title "Nintendo WFC" is not helpful for it. And the trigger of my idea was, that sometimes people are astonished, that we are talking about Wiimmfi here.
