    Miiverse, a quirky little social networking outlet that Nintendo released for its Wii U, and much later 3DS users, to discuss games and connect with communitites.

    Almost like a certain forum outlet we have going on here right? Don't worry Nintendo, we won't sue.

    So with every social outlet, sometimes redesigns and changes take place in order to better serve the community. However in this case, Nintendo decided that the community was using the platform... well, wrong. Here's the breakdown.

    According to Nintendo's Miiverse spokesperson,
    To the average Miiverse user that maybe posts a screenshot or two a day, this may not seem like much. However, Miiverse fans are in an uproar over the fact that the one means of social communication that existed between friends and fans, has now had a huge lock placed on it.

    Other changes include the ability to have a private screenshot album, a play journal for recording game notes, and a seperate drawing and discussion category, that will most likely still have the post-count lock on them. There will also be changes to the overall look of Miiverse and changes to gaming communities.

    So now the big question is, how do you feel about these changes? Did you even use Miiverse in the first place? Does it upset you that Nintendo is further restricting your access to a social platform? Did you know GBATemp doesnt limit your post count and is a great community for discussing games and content..?

    Miiverse sucked enough already, but this is incredibly stupid.

    Who cares, I didn't used miiverse in the first place LEL.

    CAN WE START A REQUEST FOR A GBATEMP APP FOR 3DS IN THE HOMEBREW SECTION? :P

    Wow they want to piss off even more people after the whole e3 thing. They must want to lose there core audience. If you didn't want people to be social then what was the purpose of miiverse? Im so scared of what is going to happen to Nintendo now after Satoru Iwata's death. Im thinking this is the first in many shitty decisions they will do now.

    The dumbfucks handling Miiverse are only making it worse rather than improving.

    - If one Nintendo account get banned the rest will be blocked too.
    - False reporting can get an innocent user a week or more of bans.
    - 30 posts a day plus the god damn annoying timer.
    - They got rid of the timer between how many X minutes until the next permitted time to reply.

    For that you can just upload them externally in 720p.

    The thing that bothers me is the fact that it continues to support that insinuation that Nintendo has no idea how to offer social aspects to games.

    Like, they continue to block Voice chat in games, they dont have any way of creating party systems for social interaction, they don't even have messaging functions for the most part, and now they're further limiting their social interaction?

    Nintendo, it's the age of Internet gaming. You have GOT to realize that people enjoy having social interaction in gaming.

    thats just wrong. why limit users so much? i will never understand this decision.

    they still expect you to play the latest mario party offline with friends. they lack 2015 in their thinking. while the software itself is great, and new, their handling is 1998 or something...

    It would be nice if we could hide that damn screen so we never had to even see it.

    How would you do that? I tried Googling but all I found were MiiVerse related. Is it easier?

    EDIT: You also might be talking about WiiU. I'm using a 3DS. lol

    my dad works for nintendo.
    ho shit, how else i will now ask girls to come visit my town in AC NL?

    so basically nintendo ideia is lock the free will of the community? whats next? "no, user, you can't write that, ok its better me (nintendo) write the stuff for you, so you are forced to only talk about what we want"

    miiverse sucks but i liked to see other peoples draws and ask for more cool draws

    Miiverse is super pointless anyways, Nintendo would do better to integrate their stuff with existing social media such as Twitter and Facebook rather than trying to make their own.
