Last week, Satoru Iwata talked about how Nintendo will make Miiverse a safe place for children and explained the different levels of moderation. During an interview with Kotaku, Reggie Fils-Aime said that the heavy moderation will only happen if a user is flagged by community members. A user will be moderated if he or she continuously transmits inappropriate content. Basically, if we’re all well-behaved citizens of the Miiverse, we don’t have to wait 30 minutes for our messages to be delivered.
But what if, as in the example given by Nintendo when debuting the MiiVerse, I want to post a request for help for a game I’m stuck on? Do I have to wait a while for that to run?
“Let’s take that example. I need help with level so-and-so. The technical scan happens. There’s no bad words. It happens.” No queue? “Correct.”
This, Fils-Aime said, is when a Nintendo rep would step in: “If the community is flagging it or if there’s an issue where the consumer is continuously trying to send inappropriate content. Because this is account driven, if Stephen Totilo is continuously trying to send inappropriate content then we have the ability to message this.”
