    Goodbye Swapnote.​

    Minutes ago, Nintendo shutdown the deliver of Swapnote messages due to the number of underage users and the amount of inappropriate material being shared.

    This is a pretty poor move on N's part. The internet is filled with inappropriate material, and you cant hold our hands forever. It doesn't seem like nintendo is making many strides forward in this new generation of gaming. The accounts systems, lingering friends codes, and now this.

    I thought the service was a glorified text messages system or a painful black/white 3d MS Paint program. I can see this affecting users all over the 3DS grid, but not me really. Sorry Chavo, I was looking forward to the end of your story and the drawing of our favorite pokemon.

    a) Looks like Swapnote ended on a brown note.
    OR
    b) Looks like it went from Swapnote to flop-note.

    Decisions, decisions.

    I already gave my opinion on this in another thread, I quote:
    This sounds very appropriate:

    Ok then. Can we have Miiverse on the 3DS now to replace it?

    IDK. Maybe Nintendo will use the same reason to shutdown Flipnote in the future.

    I actually kind of chuckled at this news,as sad as it is. Guess Nintendo was tired of looking at all the penises.

    Why don't they just implement a parental control over Swapnote and resume the service?

    Darn it! I like Swapnote, I usually post silly stuff like "Pizza Time!" and draw a big nice pizza for all my friends to drool on.
    And I have never got anything offensive or heard about anyone offensive stuff on there. If I ever find out who fucked this up! Im just sayin! #)!"#(="$)#(=!"#()½!!!

    All user generated content that has any text or imagery is on the chopping block now. I think that can be assumed.

    Open internet stamped letter to Nintendo,
    JUST LEAVE PETIT COMPUTER 3D ALONE, PLEASE

    Who cares. All you fucking members I had registered on my 3DS forced me to delete Swap Note a long time ago because you wouldn't stop spamming me with stupid messages or crap drawings. I also deleted all of you too.

    I guess this is the end for Flipnote 3D in the US and Europe too. :/
