Don't Advertise in your Miiverse Profile Comment

#1 Posted by JJOR64 (18995 posts) -

So I thought I would give you Wii U duders a heads so. So I figured in my Miiverse Profile Comment I would put my Twitter, Twitch TV, and YouTube handles in there. Well, I guess Nintendo doesn't like that so I got flagged for it. Did a quick change and put some dumb stuff in there and it got unflagged quick. So I thought I would give you guys a heads up try to not do it.

DON'T ADVERTISE OR SELF PROMOTE IN YOUR MIIVERSE PROFILE COMMENT DAMMIT!!

P.S. Looked at the Code of Conduct and it is totally in there. I just didn't read like most people. Also, I guess you can't even post your Nintendo 3DS friend code in their as well. Booooooo

It sounds like Nintendo are being very strict with the moderation on the Wii U, my advice to everyone is read the rules or else be very careful about how you communicate on that service.

People are going to be drawing dicks like there's no tomorrow, so get used to it.

Umm...it says that when you make the thing. IE dont leave comments that says who you are or who others are. Even had fancy icons to boot!!

So far in the aspect that matters...ie talking about games. The Miiverse is fantastic. The moding keeps things in line so everything is nice.

I suppose that drawing dicks isn't really advertising, unless of course you are selling your dick.

Just out of curiosity if you said Giant Bomb User would that get flagged? Or are they like Microsoft and the word "bomb" is banned in general

Wait, you can't post your 3DS friend code? That's bull shit. When will Japan understand the internet?

Sounds like some of the Giant Bomb mods are working part time as Wii U mods. I kid, I kid!

I assume you could probably just put GLHB and it would be fine. Write "bomb" and they report you to the United Nations for crimes against humanity.

Craigslist -> for-sale -> musical-instruments

Title: 8====D skin flute for sale $15 o.b.o.

He's a picture I drew of my vintage 80's skin flute. It has a lot of wear but I've taken good care of it.

Asking $15 or willing to trade for Wii U.

Same issue with me. I included my youtube and AIM information as I generally do. Right after I finished making this sweet text art of a fox welcoming them to my profile, I get a notification that my profile has been restricted. Also, the notifications on replies are strange. They often don't tell you when you get replies but then often alert you to replies on another person's post that you replied too as well. I see no notifications, I click on it, there are like 2 or 3 new comments. Y U NO TELL ME?!
