The ever so informative Marty from Nintendo has informed Miiverse users that there has been an update to the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS social network. For those that use the web version of Miiverse you’ll be pleased to know that the search function is now in a more prominent place at the top of the community list. You can also now search for Wii U and 3DS owners using the search box and this change will also pass over to the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of Miiverse. You can read about the changes, below.
1) We changed the position of the community search function in the web version of Miiverse. The search box is now at the top of the community list.
2) Previously you could only search for users in the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of Miiverse, but you can now search for them in the web version too. The search box is at the top of the activity feed in the web version. We plan to move it there in the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of Miiverse in a future update.
Thanks, Kallum S
Due to a bug being discovered in the Mario & Luigi Miiverse community, Nintendo has now disabled users from posting images in that specific section of the social network. The glitch that was discovered yesterday allowed anyone to post any image in that particular Miiverse community leading to some adult images being posted by savvy users. Here’s what Nintendo had to say.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the screenshot feature has been disabled in this community. We are looking into the cause of the problem. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.
Miiverse moderators must be working overtime today as it has emerged that there’s currently a glitch in the Mario and Luigi Miiverse forum that allows a user to post any picture. Obviously some have taken this opportunity to post adult orientated images with their posts. No doubt Nintendo is working hard to fix this glitch.

“This only works without the update for the game. You open another game or application that can be suspended, then you launch Dream Team. Rapidly press the HOME button repeatedly so that you will return to the HOME Menu the second that the 3DS logo is gone. Then rapidly press the HOME button repeatedly again to go back to the game for a second and return to the HOME Menu. —wait—
This will cause the game to display an image from your previous software (in this case the camera app), or just random colors. This is most likely due to some data from the previous software remaining in the RAM”.
Open the camera app, then open the mario and luigi. But press Home really fast so it takes you to the home menu before the game starts. Then do the same, go to the game for a second but press it fast again. IT should show an image of the camera app or colors. Go in, chose the picture come to miiverse. Note, it wont work if you have updated it.
Those of you hoping to use Miiverse or browse the internet while playing Super Smash Bros on the current Nintendo 3DS will be in for a shock. These features will only work if you have the new Nintendo 3DS which launches next month in Japan and sometime next year in the west. However, you will still be able to save in game screenshots to your Nintendo 3DS SD card.
“Miiverse cannot be run while this software is being played, so posting screenshots to this community is not possible. When using this software with the New Nintendo 3DS or New Nintendo 3DS XL, Miiverse can be used while playing.”
A new Miiverse update has been rolled out today – and, as always, Marty is on hand to give us all the necessary details. Changes have been made to the post-filtering function on both Wii U and 3DS versions of Nintendo’s social network. Users will now find two tabs displaying player posts and popular posts – selecting the player posts will filter into the following categories, with the screenshot posts a new addition in today’s update:
- All posts (no filtering)
- Player posts
- Screenshot Posts
- Posts with a tag (Question, Impressions, Accomplishment, and so on)
Miiverse users will also find that a reminder function has now been added to the “saved posts” area on the Nintendo 3DS version. A notification will pop up in your saved posts list saying, “There are posts in the Saved Posts list, which you can check here.” Selecting this will enable users to post such saved posts directly to their activity feed.
And finally, the web version of Miiverse has changed slightly, coming into line with the Wii U and 3DS versions. Users will now find a profile settings option, as well as a larger displayed version of their designated favourite post.
An extremely talented Miiverse user has sketched an incredible tribute to American actor and comedian, Robin Williams. It took Miiverse user Craig thirteen hours to complete the sketch which is possibly the best depiction of someone I’ve seen on the social network.

A minor update for the web version of Miiverse has been rolled out. As always, Marty is on board to give us the details on the update, which can be found here. Web users no longer have to log in to their Wii U and 3DS Miiverse accounts in order to select three favourite game genres, as you can now do so straight from the web. To set your favourite genres, simply go to your User Page, then User Menu and into Profile Settings to select them.
