At last the new European Nintendo website is now online!
Now we can finally trade Star points for Wii Points at an exchange rate of 4:1!
Free Virtual Console games, Nintendo you're the best!

nope, the website is still the same, i have it on bookmarks and it hasn't changed for the past week or so, i think the original poster is trolling tbh.

edit: jax, that link just keeps timing out.

Not trolling, please keep accusations like that to yourself please.
They're probably having some problems right now, but I did manage to buy wiipoints earlier.

Here's a screenshot (not my own) from the dutch site:

Holy crap, Nintendo Europe do something good for a change! Its been a long time since I traded star points, the last time was for that great little compilation with Zelda 1, 2, OoT & Majoras Mask.

Got thousands of points but I'm not sure if I should trade for VC games or wait for WiiWare.

The site looks quite nice on first sight. I really appreciate the new color scheme.

Same here. I've got about 7.000 points left (traded some for a DS longsleeve and--shame on me--Pokémon Box) and it was just this week that I decided not to register anymore software until I'm able to trade stars for Wii points because the stars will expire after one year.

Is there actually a release date for WiiWare coming to Europe?

The more I think about it, the more I'll have to say that 4:1 is a pretty bad exchange rate. I mean, you have to buy for 4 games to get 1.000 stars and that converts to 800 Wii points. That's a plain rip-off, at least at the moment, without WiiWare being available.

anyone know what the expiration date is for wii points, I can't get online with my wii at the moment, but I've already changed the stars for wii points, I just don't want them to expire while my wii is not connected

Yeah, but still, you get it for free. Nintendo doesn't have to give you those stars.
I know that, but even when compared to the other articles in the new stars catalogue it's a rip-off imo, let alone what japanese gamers get.

As far as I know the Wii points won't expire, only the stars do (1 year after added).

4:1... eh, I expected a better ratio. My 4 or so years of collecting stars is only worth 4500 Wii Points?

Still, better than nothing I guess.
