    his is just a quick reminder to you all that posting friend codes on Miiverse is not allowed. Sharing your friend code with strangers could lead to trouble. The same goes for posting other personal data, such as full names, birthdays or contact details. That’s why posting your friend code or any personal data is prohibited by the Miiverse Code of Conduct.
    We want to make Miiverse a safe and enjoyable place for everyone, so if you are not aware of the Miiverse Code of Conduct, then please take the time to read through it. It can be found under Settings/Other in the User Menu in the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of Miiverse. In the web version, you can find it in the User Menu. If you violate the rules laid out in the Miiverse Code of Conduct, you may receive penalties such as restriction of your use of Miiverse, so please be careful!
    That said, you can still post some game-specific codes. For instance, you can go on posting Mario Kart 7 community codes and Animal Crossing dream addresses as you have been doing already.
    Have fun gaming and enjoy your time on Miiverse!

    Are you saying GBATemp has become the official go-to place for users wanting to read the MiiVerse Terms and Conditions? Hot diggity damn, that's awesome. :) Costello, you sly dog, you. I always knew you were a great administrator, but this is just plain awesome.

    It's always been forbidden on Miiverse, there's nothing new.
    However I'm not sure if they can detect FCs in private messages.

    Pretty sure that sharing Friend Codes on MiiVerse was forbidden ages ago and frowned upon from Day 1. This is why we have dedicated Friend Code sharing threads:

    3DS Friend Code Sharing Thread
    NNID Sharing Thread

    GBATemp users are aware of this limitation and share their contact data through those means.

    This topic doesn't really help things, everything here is basic Miiverse information.
