Nintendo Clamps Down on Miiverse Posts

There’s been an update announced today for the Miiverse, including all platforms: Wii U, 3DS, and web. The upside is that the web version will have community search functionality (finally!), and a “Posts from Verified Users” tab so that you can easily see updates from developer accounts on various titles.

The downside—or at least, the way some folks are seeing it—is that there has been added a time window in which you can post comments to other peoples’ posts. Previously, rapid posts were enabled, but now you’ll need to wait three minutes before leaving consecutive messages on anyone else’s post.

This deliberately removes the “chat” vibe, which will certainly help the moderators and those on the Miiverse team who don’t want their service to become a chat room.

You’ll still be able to post as often and as much as you want on your own post… here are the full details to help you keep things straight:

“There has been an update to Miiverse today.


1)    We’ve added two new features to the web version of Miiverse to bring it in line with the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions.

The first is the “Posts from Verified Users” icon at the top of the Communities screen, which you can select to display only posts by verified users.

The second is the community search function, which lets you search for communities by software title.

2)    This affects all versions of Miiverse: You can no longer post several comments in quick succession on somebody else’s post.


From now on, after posting a comment on someone else’s post, you will have to wait around 3 minutes before you can comment again on the same post. This doesn’t apply to your own posts, where you can comment as frequently as you like.”

For good or bad, there you have it. Will this make Miiverse more or less fun to post in? We’ll find out!
