    Hey so I figured out how to use a yeah bot.
    However, I have some concerns:

    a) How long do I have to leave the program running for nintendo to find a pattern?
    b) Would nintendo ban me from miiverse or ban my NNID all together?
    c) Could nintendo ban my IP address? Could they make it so we can't connect to the internet at all?

    I know that last question seems far-fetched, its my dad that wanted me to ask that last one.

    Thanks!

    For those curious, im using this method:

    You're trying to boost your ego by faking your popularity with a like-bot?
    <-- Bad kitty :angry:

    She asked about the risks and I gave her my opinion on what one might be. (even though it sucked :P)
    Eh, I guess if you see it as a programming challenge I can be more sympathetic to your cause :P
    And I have to admit, Miiverse is a dump that deserves to be trashed with like-spam.

    Bots come with a lot of risks and systems are setup to detect them. Even if you aren't effected at first, Nintendo will monitor your account until they conformable pattern.

    I dont really care about how a bunch of children that i'll never even meet see me like.

    My worry is that nintendo will find a pattern, ban me, and ban my IP for spamming them (well that's more what my dad's worried about, but its a valid worry.)

    The most I think you would get is a Miiverse ban, but if you're worried about a ban you shouldn't do it, it's a pointless bot anyway.

    Im worried about an IP ban. From what Crystal's told me, they legally cant ban my IP. Makes sense since its miiverse and not facebook that im messing around with.

    They can legally ban your IP, they can't legally disconnect you from the internet.
    Nintendo won't ban your IP because they don't want to loose your money. If they ban your IP, you can't get on the eShop, and that cost them potential money.
    As well the Wii U can have several accounts, meaning banning your IP also bans their accounts.
    Basically Nintendo will punish you with all the power they can do, but still allow you to spend money.

    So worst case scenario the only ones affected are those that use nintendo stuff in this IP (my brother and I)

    This wouldnt affect my mom or my dad?

    Worst case, your Miiverse is banned and everyone else is fine. It's against Nintendo's best interest to go after their accounts.

    So, with blaitent they will ban you. I don't think they should since the Code of Conduct, does not say you cannot do this.
