Nintendo has once again updated Miiverse and implemented some subtle changes. Miiverse users can now get special updates from Nintendo regarding changes to the service, these notifications are displayed in a special dedicated Miiverse community. The notification system has also been changed, and you will now get messages once someone has decided to follow you. Nintendo has also decided that Miiverse users can now only post once every five minutes. This change was made to prevent multiple posts from the same person appearing on-screen. Nintendo has also changed its code of conduct and has decided that off-topic posts are no longer allowed on the service. You can see all the changes that Nintendo has implemented in the video above.

Thanks, NintenDaan

  1. Sometimes it got annoying when more and more people kept commenting on a dead Netflix post, but those were my ONLY notifications, so I don’t think it was that bad.

    The “post only every 5 minutes” rule might get on my nerves every once in a while…

  2. i saw this coming the min the dumbass said “lets go to all miiverse communties and ask for [insert this]” very off topic and in the same time now i can report these spammers without counter report.
    I like this update but in the same time it could hurt some community like TVii and youtube.

  3. Nintendo must have heard out cries in Europe for a 60htz version of Balloon Trip!!

    Only post once every 5 minutes? That’s pathetic!

    I hope Miiverse doesn’t turn into a Nazi boot camp where we are only allowed to talk about certain topics!! We should be allowed to say whatever the hell we want to say!!

    Bad move by Nintendo!

  4. Not everything is bad, so what if Nintendo make Miiverse a little civil and mature? Are we not on Miiverse to share our gaming experiences and ask for how to get a Silver Rathalos plate? Let’s demand for games and not cry over Miiverse.

    • Whats civil and mature about not posting more than once in a 5 min time frame and not having off topic posts?.. I personally think its getting ridiculous

      • Don’t worry about Gamer. He’ll put a positive twist on Nintendo, even if Nintendo insulted its customers, he’d still put a positive twist on it.

  5. Does anyone have problems in wara wara plaza? I’m online and it displays like I’m not online and has the normal icons and not the ones in miiverse. I have another Nintendo account and it loads everything fine on the alternate account

  6. 5 minute rule is irritating. No off topic posts wtf Nintendo even I a person who normally never disagrees with you says this is stupid. So I can’t have my lets talk about Smash Broad and Mario Party 10 and Mario Mart Wii U posts? Give us a GENERAL or OTHER community.

  7. Nindo should give us a community where we can talk about anything. It’s hard to find where to post when what you want to post have nothing to do with any of the comunity

  8. The only thing that might be slightly annoying is the 5 minute rule. But that’s really only if it applies to comments as well.

    Everything else is fine. We don’t need Miiverse becoming a troll fest like… well, this place.

  9. I have to say, I’m disappointed with these changes. Post every 5 minutes? No off topics allowed? They should have created a community where you can talk about off topic things. Miiverse is something I truly enjoy, but with these changes, I just don’t know. With no games out yet, Miiverse helped. I think this is the last time I buy a console at launch. So no Xbox /PS4 until after being out for a year!

  11. “Miiverse Downgraded Today” Fixed.

    Anyway, due to Nintendo’s restrictions and other bad things, this is why I wasn’t looking forward to Miiverse when I was getting the Wii U. I was kind of fine with it (Sort of) these days though when I got it but seeing this really pisses me off.

  12. The 5 min rule is not only bad people. I can see more good from it than bad. That it prevents pesky spammers is a really big and needed + especially when more Wii Us will be in living rooms.

    The only “drawback” is that you can not do multiple threads at the same time, but as this do not regulate comments so do I see no problem using comments to continuing your posts which I thought every sane being actually did. 5 minutes are not that long of a time eighter if you think about it. It is a cooldown I am happy with if it leads to less spamming.

  15. I’m sad to say, but Miiverse just doesn’t seem fun at this time. Just tried to post a few minutes after I posted, and I got this stupid message telling me when I could post again. Also, because of these restrictions, traffic seems extremely light on Miiverse. Nintendo, this is not how you get nor keep the hardcore who has invested in your console already. Again, so disappointed!!

  16. @Tri pod.. The reason why people are doing those drawings and asking for yeahs, is because it’s fun, but more importantly, no games at the moment. Miiverse for me during this dry spell, has been a saving grace. If more games were available, I bet people wouldn’t have done those things so often. Also, why give us the option to report, if they are going to police for us?

    • No, it’s because they are twats…begging for yeahs is ridiculous and cheapen’s Miiverse. Drawings are ok if the person can actually draw well!

    • Sorry, but not all people can stay busy for 5 minutes with comments. We want to post multiple threads in as much time as we want. What makes me even more frustrated with this Donkey-Kong crap is that there hasn’t even been problems with spamming. *from what I’ve seen* everyone on Miiverse knows how to act; there hasn’t been any spam trolls… so why Nintendo created that 5 minute rule is beyond me, even if it DOESN’T APPLY TO COMMENTS.

  17. This is all good news and preparation for when they update miiverse soon. Nintendo said they will allow users to create community’s soon so what’s the big deal.

  18. @revolution5268… What I meant by my comment was, because of the Wii, Nintendo has lost some credibility with the “hardcore”. Nintendo is on record a number of times saying how they want to get the hardcore back. We’ll, implementing these changes were unnecessary and may be seen as Nintendo hand holding too much. Unfortunately at this time, the Wii U is suffering and image problem due to it’s small release of games. Then, in my opinion, they weaken one of their most popular features. I still love my Wii U, but I’m upset at the moment!

  19. Can’t make a whole new post for 5 minutes? No skin off my back. Most of my texts are comments instead of whole new posts anyways.
    Now, what they REALLY need to do at this point, is increase the character limit for messages in Miiverse.

    Like

  20. The 5-minute would be a good idea…if we didn´t have so few characters to write. A person once made a question about how to progress in ZombiU and I had to write 3 posts to give him the complete answer. They should at least increase the number of characters on each post.

  21. I guess this is a good thing. It sure is nice to have less flooding on Miiverse, but I think there should be an Off-Topic community for general discussions unrelated to gaming.
