Miiverse Updates Now Coming Directly to You

In other news, changes to the notification system and Code of Conduct.

Nintendo has updated their Miiverse service again and some interesting changes have been made.

Users will now get direct updates from Nintendo, which are displayed in a special dedicated Miiverse community. In here, Nintendo will make announcements about their changes to the service, so that the consumer is constantly up to date. If you are in Europe, as seen in the video below, Marty from NoE will explain in various languages on what to expect.

For this first update, Marty talked about the changes to the notification system. You will  now get messages once someone has decided to follow you, which makes keeping in touch with them easier. After commenting on someone's post, you will no longer get notifications from people who aren't the original poster.

Also, you can now only post once every five minutes on Miiverse. The change was made to prevent multiple posts from the same person appearing on screen. This won't change the structure of the comments however, which will remain as they currently are.

Finally, some changes have been made to the Code of Conduct, more precisely to the ''By Gamers, About Games'' section. Nintendo has decided that off-topic posts no longer have a place on Miiverse. They want you as a user to stay on topic and remain relevant to the discussion. Furthermore, they don't condone openly asking for friend requests or pushing for agreement on a certain topic.

I hope this isn't the interesting news coming, but even if so it's all good.


Staying on topic is good. So what does that mean for our pictures? Will my Smash Bros related stuff get deleted from Nintendo Land?

RIP Dafoe.


But good riddance to "Yeah if you think X is whatever" and "I need X more Yeah's to reach X number of Yeahs. Help!" posts.

ugh! What's with people desperate need for approval? I see this shit every where these days; facebook, reddit, now miiverse! At least reddit lets you vote negatively to keep that sort of shit off the front pages. I'm glad their doing this, I just hope they don't go overboard and get rid of some pics. Cater', your brawk stuff in Nintendoland should be safe since it's a game making an amusement park out of other nintendo games. What you should be worried about is that scum of the miiverse will try to make the NL community into the new Funky Barn community. Poor Kai..

applaud if you agree! I only need 81 more to reach 200!

YES! THANK YOU NINTENDO!

I don't like the 1 post every 5 minutes restriction.  I have chatted back and forth with people in real time and that restriction would kill any possibility of doing that in the future.

The change only affects posts. So maybe you can still chat through comments on a post?

Look...Haaaaardaaa....

Damn you, Enner.

This was probably brought on by the 60Hz complaints, or at least that is a nice side effect of implementing these changes.

Makes me angry. Nintendo are seemingly choosing to just ignore.

TeaHeeFebruary 07, 2013

Thanks, I missed the part about it being posts and not comments.

I think the 60Hz complaints are legit though. As long as people don't start taking them to communities outside "Balloon Fight", they should be allowed to stay. They are on-topic and relevant to the discussion of the game.

Clearly done to hide the Earthbound begging in the (NA) Balloon Fight community!

Yeah, I'm hoping that's the case, but you never know with Nintendo.

So long, Funky Barn community of insanity :(

I really don't think the complaints about 50Hz brought this on. They are a drop in the ocean compared to the "Please Yeah this" posts littering just about every forum I visited recently. It made trying to see if anyone got stuck in the same place I was in The Cave, for instance, very unpleasant. The ratio of off-topic:on-topic must have been 3:2.

I guess a lot of people might hate these things, but I think the more "controlled" miiverse is, the better it will end up being in the long run. So many communities are overrun with trolls and people asking for yeahs that I will gladly sacrifice some things to get rid of them. There are limits, obviously (the one post every 5 min. may be a little overboard), but I'd rather it be like it is now than be like the troll-ridden community it could become.
