Miiverse has been updated to allow users to tag their posts as specific types of post, including: Question, Accomplishment, Impression, Retro and Players Wanted. In addition, a few changes have been made to the Miiverse Code of Conduct. Users are reminded to not let anyone use their Nintendo Network ID.

Tags players post themselves will have a blue color, while tags made from games will have green tags. Tag availability varies from community to community, but you can now filter posts by tag to make it easier to search for content you want to see. Character limit for comments was changed from 100 to 200 in June, but that has now been carried over for messages as well.

What do you think of these changes? Let us know in the comments below.

    Ok now this is pretty smart, now all we need is colors for drawings and the app fpr my phone and I’m set

    • Ismael Ototo

      The app for smartphones is already available, isn’t it? Oh, and the Art Academy app is on it’s way πŸ˜€

      • SonicLucario

        As far as I know I dont think so, Ive been using my web browser on it to use Miiverse

        • benjie

          well there are fan made sort of apps. But i think thats just a redirection to the site in mobile form. I use a fan made app.

      • Baum γ€Œγƒ„γƒͺー」

        as SonicLucario said: it’s possible to access Miiverse on your MOBILEPHONE (/handy :P) and PC, but there’s no app ^^

        • Budew are you German?

          • Baum γ€Œγƒ„γƒͺー」

            Yeah, why do you ask?

          • Jeffery02

            Because you called it a Handy instead of a Cellphone, Smartphone, or Mobile Device.

          • Baum γ€Œγƒ„γƒͺー」

            Oohh πŸ˜€
            Are we really the only ones to call it that? (Together with Austria and Switzerland?)

          • Jeffery02

            I don’t know if German is the only language like that, but Handy is definitely known as a German word for Cellphones.

          • MrBuney

            Ha a handy, thats kool

          • yes,

  • This is AWESOME! I love being a part of miiverse. Being able to tag our own posts is brilliant πŸ™‚ (And thank God they’re not hashtags…)

    • SonicLucario

      Lol lets hope the dont turn into hashtags #swag

      • #Miiverseyolohippiegangsta2013swagggg

        Makes me wanna puke

        • SonicLucario


          • Nintedward

            #Hashbrown πŸ˜€


          • Mochlum

            I guess if they added hashtags, they’ll have to make a Fire Emblem for Wii U.

            (get it? because of “yolo”? anyone?)

          • MrBuney

            I get it lol

        From the looks of it you’re limited to preset tags. Question; Accomplishment; Impression are what are up now. Retro is also a unique one possible on the EarthBound community. There are probably others, but they’re all preset so no “create your own” tags.

    • gamesplayswill

      To be honest Twitter’s hash tags aren’t that bad.

    • JBeauregard

      I’d like a change in the code of conduct that sounded more adult-like. I’ve gotten in trouble by having a friendly disagreement. I literally said, “You don’t understand what I wrote.” They guy reported me for harassing him lol. Miiverse wants you to be happy and agreeable at all times.

      • -shrugs- they just dont want things to spiral out of control

      • Lord Carlisle

        The admins either need to go or get a whole lot less strict, as they’re really hindering Miiverse. Banning should just be limited to innapropriate content, spoilers, and excesdive reporting. You shouldn’t be reported for being mildly rude(and you weren’t even that).

        • rp17

          My first day on Miiverse I wrote, and I quote, “Wii U Rocks.” Then next day…’this post was deleted by and administrator.’ WTF!

    • Lord Carlisle

      As much as I welcome this change, I wouldn’t really call it ‘brilliant’. It’s not like tags are an unusual and innovative thing, at least not anymore.

      • *shrugs* I dunno. Seems smart to me. I always have trouble finding monster hunter posts about people wanting to play, or I wanted to post them,but was worried about it getting lost. Now I can post them in a specific category and not be overshadowed

  • Zombie Boy

    Changing the amount of characters you can use in a message is a massive improvement, and will come in very handy!

    PS If anyone wants to add me on there, my user name is ZombieBoy78 (including the capital letters).

    • lozman1122

      Lol mine is lozman1122. Add me too guys!

      • MoodyG355

        If you wanna add me… xD, my name is MoodyG355.

        • lonewolf88

          my name is firered if you want to add me! getting need for speed in 3 days it was 10 bucks on amazon!

      • felony211662

    • ican1992

  • Mario


  • AAAkabob

    This is freaking kool not gonna lie

    Is there really no 3DS news=[?

    • Decker Shado

      I saw a new 3DS article on the “trending” box on the front page, but for some reason it’s not there when you click the 3DS tab.

  • The Clockwork Being

    Great.Now just update the number of friends you can have to 300.

  • Smartass2

    I have no friends : (

  • Wayne Beck

    Gooooood goooooood. We’ve desperately been needing a Sort Feature of some kind.

  • Yousif Alromaithi

    Miiverse is addictive.

  • JBeauregard

    I’d like a Code Of Conduct update that eases up on Nintendo’s ability to rule with an iron fist over anything that isn’t happy and agreeable on Miiverse. It seems as thought you cannot disagree with someone because that person will be offended, and you’ll be warned by Nintendo. While I like Miiverse, it is made for, and run for, kids.

  • Christian Schoff

    So cool.

  • Christian Schoff

    I’m using my Wii U now. πŸ˜€

  • Bill Bong


  • Ony

    RETRO type of post huh ?
    I’ll make an everyday RETRO post “-studio METROID pleaaaaase” πŸ˜€

  • DragonSilths

    Just another way to get banned…I use the question tag, but dont actually have a question? Probably going to get banned again…Until the Admins from Miiverse are removed, Miiverse will never reach the best it can be.

    • Lord Carlisle

      Or just much more limited in what they can ban you for. And those “sensitive”(butthurt) users often report for the most ridiculous things.

  • I am glad Nintendo seems to be continually working on MiiVerse and not letting it fade away.

    • Lord Carlisle

      Well, seeing as how it’s the system itself’s “killer app”, I don’t think they’d just forget about it. Though I have to say, I was worried these changes would come much later on, but they’re improving it rather quickly. Custom communities, more organization, and less strict admins would make Miiverse GOLDEN.

      • I have to be honest… I was skeptical that MiiVerse would take off but being a part of the community I have to say I was wrong. Great place to discuss game topics and in-game moments as they happen.

  • Moreck

    MiiVerse keeps getting better and better! For my personal needs as a gamer, it’s superior to XBL & PSN. However, N needs to get on advertising MiiVerse and what a fantastic community it’s shaping up to be! Especially for families.

  • catsby

    or use you know.. Facebook.

    • Michael Jurado

      mii verse is thousands of times more fun than facebook

  • Tecpedz94

    Miiverse just keeps getting better and better im glad their doing all this. Cant wait for the 3ds to receive it.

  • Lusunup

    I really wish I could go on miiverse and check out the up date but I got banned..

  • That is an easy way to they see what we want!

  • Rockband8


  • Fuzunga
