Nintendo has updated the Miiverse community once again and Marty is on hand to divulge the necessary details. Regular Miiverse members may have been heavily frustrated by the last major update which added a three-minute waiting time between comments on another member’s post. However, in today’s update it looks as if Nintendo has listened to many community members by reducing the wait between successive comments on posts to two minutes.
Alongside the reduced waiting time, members on the social channel will be able to use up to 400 characters in written comments. That means there’s plenty of space for hints, tips and explanations to friends on where to find that super important item in-game. Plus, there’s two other minor updates concerning your profile, where your activity feed now displays posts that your friends or followers have given a “Yeah!” to, as well as a notification screen that shows up to 50 notifications.
No doubt the reduced waiting time between posts will please many Miiverse users, but is it still too lengthy a gap to provide a natural flow of conversation? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
Nintendo has officially opened the Mario Kart 8 Miiverse community to members of the social networking channel. The community was originally only accessible to select members of the media and Nintendo employees, but is now open to the general public prior to the game’s release. Gaming retailers are reportedly selling the popular racing title early, despite its release in two days. You can begin posting in the community, here.
Nintendo has provided a new update for Miiverse today, and as always Marty is on hand to divulge the details. Up first is an improvement to your individual profile page on the social channel, where ‘user menu’ has been replaced with the option ‘user page’. Clicking on your profile will result in a newly refurbished page, detailing your profile comment and which Nintendo devices you own, followed by pages for your activity feed and connections.
The new profile page, which can only be viewed on Wii U or 3DS, also allows you to select a “favourite post” from a current or past Miiverse post, which can then be proudly displayed as a head banner at the top of your profile. To do so, just touch the spanner icon on any one of your old posts and in the pull down option menu select “favourite post”. You can remove or replace your favourite post by accessing profile settings from the User Page, as well as access the User Menu from within your User Page.
The second minuscule update now allows Miiverse users on all platforms to “Yeah!” comments, as well as posts. Clicking on a comment will also enable users to see some of the people who gave it a Yeah.
The secret Mario Kart 8 Miiverse community has been discovered. The community is currently only for Nintendo and select members of the media, but it’s openly viewable at this link. The Mario Kart 8 community will be available for everyone to participate in come May 30th when the game launched on the Wii U.
Nintendo has rolled out a new Miiverse update today and Marty is on hand to divulge the details in the community forum. For those who often access Miiverse on the go from smartphones or the internet, you’ll be pleased to hear there’s now an option to access posts only from verified users. To enable the feature just select “posts from verified users” icon at the top of the community screen and an update will never pass you by again.
The second feature, as Marty explains, is an update to the community search function, allowing you to search for communities by software title. It will affect all versions of Miiverse and, subsequently, means users can no longer post numerous comments in a short space of time on someone else’s post.
According to the update, Miiverse users will have to wait for up to three minutes before being able to post again. However, this only affects other people’s posts, since you can post as many times as you like on your own. Of course, the update will be put to great use in terms of moderation, but it may break up the conversational flow for other users. What do you think to the new update? Let us know in the comments below.
Thanks, Lazara the Last and Anthony
Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida has revealed that he was banned from Miiverse a couple of times. Yoshida, who leads the firm’s PlayStation sector, violated the Miiverse code of conduct by promoting his Twitter handle – @yosp – and by expressing his affection for the PlayStation brand. The Sony executive previously confirmed that he owns two Wii U consoles.
“The first time was because I had my Twitter account in my profile and that’s against the rules,” Yoshida said. “The second time is because I wrote, ‘I love PS.’ You’re not supposed to promote a commercial product in MiiVerse, so they correctly interpreted ‘PS’ as PlayStation.”
Legendary Nintendo designer Shigeru Miyamoto has taken to Miiverse to declare that the Year of Luigi has finally come to an end. To commemorate the Year of Luigi, Nintendo also created a special webpage which is filled with Miiverse art and comments. It’s worth checking out and you can view it here.
Hi everyone, thanks so much for your warm comments for Luigi!
We selected a few of the comments and placed them on our website. Just select the internet browser icon or the link at the end of this post to go to the page and have a look!
Well, ahem…now, without further ado…
I hereby declare the Year of Luigi closed!
Thank you all so very much for your kind support over the course of the year!
Even though the Year of Luigi has come to a close, I hope you will continue to cheer on Luigi. Thank you!
