    So after putting it off for a couple of months, I decided to register Brawl and Mario Party 8 to my My Nintendo account. I havent used it in a while but had like 23 games registered as well as 5 or so systems. During this period, I installed the homebrew channel and tried out some .wads (uninstalling them after about 10 minutes using the wad uninstaller). I let the Nintendo channel collect data cause I didnt really care much and also forgot to unlink my account to the wii shop channel. Anywhoo, after trying to register the games, the site tells me that my account has been deactivated and to call the number. Is this a result of the homebrew, or does it just deactivate after a while? I didnt call them yet and dont plan to till tomorrow.

    edit: Just emailed them, should get a reply in 2 days

    Haven't been on Nintendo's site for a while I,ll check if my account is still active and get back to you...


    Mmmm.... still works, even after over a full year. I guess it was indeed the Nintendo Channel's doing... (nothing confirmed though, might be something else)

    My account is still activated, I have wads too and the Nintendo Channel on. Maybe it was something else.

    Same thing happened to my friend, his account was deactivated and from what he can tell, his online access has also been revoked on his Wii. He can't get the WiFi to work after his account was deactivated. It really suck for him, because it was the families Wii and not specifically his.

    Well, it just goes to show you that opting in will just send them a red flag.

    Might be a coincidence.. or no.. let's wait for a confirmation before jump into conclusions [​IMG]

    Till then, I'll continue to evade WAD files. Hope they don't find my D2CKey [​IMG]

    Thats weird, cause I just tried to play some online Brawl (against anyone) about 2 hours ago and I was in the practice area for like 30 minutes... Coincidence?

    Did either of you use installed WAD Tickets to redownload from the Wii-Shop? Just trying to pinpoint what could have triggered Nintendo to ban you.

    I installed the .wad itself with waninkokos installer then uninstalled it using the uninstaller. I didnt download anything from the shop.

    Well, Nintendo Channel is useless anyway, so I'll continue with all my homebrew without any worries. [​IMG]

    I didn't ever install the nintendo channel. Never really saw a reason to. Wow... I can watch flash trailers of upcoming Wii games...... I know that somepeople enjoy the DS Demo Download Play so I guess that's a nice feature, but a feature a Slot-1 card will render obsolete.

    Hmmm..... so the thing you guys have in common other than the WADs is the Nintendo Channel. And since we know it sends installed channel information to Nintendo, they could have easily found out.

    Why don't you try calling the number and asking them why your account was disabled?

    It's not like they're going to sue you for calling.

    I've installed WADs, visited the WiiShop channel (after installing WADs), even attempted to download ones before they fixed the ticket issue (just to try it), and even temporarily opted in to the Nintendo Channel (before I removed the damn thing because it's a stupid program). All with My Nintendo account linked

    My Nintendo account is still active.
