Tomorrow, November 7th at 10PM PST, Miiverse will be shut down forever. Let's remember it fondly by posting our favorite drawings, memes, shitposts, and memories from the past 5 years.
ArchiveTeam is attempting to back up Miiverse in its entirety. From November 3rd to 5th, volunteers were able to archive 32 gigs of content, or about a third of the site, before Nintendo started banning the IPs of scrapers, at which point they made their efforts private. Who knows how far along they are now, with just a little more than 24 hours to go, but with any luck, we may have a read-only time capsule of Miiverse to cherish forever.
If you don't want to risk losing your own shitposts, you can go to miiverse.nintendo.net/settings/download_request and receive a archive link after Miiverse shuts down tomorrow, but only if you put the request in before that happens. And of course, this is your last chance to paint graffiti in Inkopolis Plaza, make lewd innuendos for Smash 4's Miiverse stage, send a message to that Japanese girl who added you for some reason, or get banned for illegal memes.
Anyone got the miiverse stuff that triggered Andrew Dobson?
I vaguely remember that but no. I'm also looking for a pic that had a character in Smash 4 getting beat up by Bayonetta or Zero Suit Samus or something, and the top post was "god I wish that were me."
The only thing I could find was him bitching about Miiverse on his Twitter a while back. It's really sad and horrible how he lives his life like a faggot.
who is this fucking faggot. i see shit about him and every time it just makes me pissed.
I still lose my shit over that one.
Welcome to the "I hate Dobson" club, the club that makes fun of a manchild sociopath and his shitty art while controlling the urge to spray him with worse chemicals and punch him for every retarded thing he does for his Sjw overlords and social justice.
THAT'S OUR DOBSON!
It was fun while it lasted
Man what the fuck, people have to spend HOURS to get these good drawings made, like how else are you gonna draw on the wiiu pad? No way, I mean I bet people did drawing more than playing the game! Ugh I fucking hate you good drawers!
Miiverse Shitposting was the only entertaining thing to come from nintendo last gen.
This sounds like something out of a Miiverse post
It was fun to see something amusing happen in a game, hit the home button and post it to Miiverse and see reactions from random people. It was fun to play through levels and at the end see Miiverse posts where people felt the same about the level as you did. It was fun to play Smash and see goofy memes pop up while you're playing. It was fun.
It was exactly what you'd expect from giving a bunch of unsupervised children their own social media ballpit, and it was the best thing ever. I am really gonna miss it.
And nothing of value was lost.
A shame, reading Miiverse shitposts in game was half the fun of the Wii U.
Fuck me fuck me fuck.
What is Nintendo's fucking problem? It's like they hate their community.
But they do.
Fuck you pay me
Check his Encyclopedia Dramatica page for info :^)
Why would I want to fuck Napoleon?
Rest in peace, Miiverse
Nintendo is making the right decision in doing this. Only pretendos want this toxic community to stay up any longer.
So why are they getting rid of miiverse? I was under the impression that a web service like that cost next to nothing, especially since its a "closed circuit" type since you can only post with a wii-u. Not to mention the limitations on the posts. I guess the one employee they had to have on staff to double check when someone posted nigger or a dick pic was just too much cost.
Because Nintendo is run by incompetent morons, both this side and across the pond. Example: Treehouse is still allowed to butcher games despite the constant backlash they get for their localizations.
Too many bells and whistles. Why can't they just have a universal account, one rewards program, and just have devices work like a fucking PC would? I can't keep track of this shit
No one will ever have a reason to collect stamps in Mario 3D World What even happens at the end of a level now? When I turn on my Wii U are there going to be fake Miis urging me to connect to a service that died? Maybe I'm alone in thinking that this is a travesty. I wanted Miiverse on the Switch, instead Nintendo kills it and wrecks a shitload of Wii U games. This is insane.
Not to mention the jap branch then ask the tree house branch what the hell is going on with all the hate, and which point they then feed them their spin on things.
That was the best part about Miiverse. This just reminds me that we take too much for granted, and we don't really know what we have until it's gone.
Don't worry, goy, just wait for the Switch re-releases of all those WiiU games.
Shitendon't seems to have become really anti-consumer arrogant retards faggots since we lost Iwata.
I had no idea.
You missed out on the best shit
something i made
Don't know if I should be disappointed that so far I'm only seen two dicks on the Miiverse stage in the past two days, kinda expected more to get through (one was disguised as "scissors").
Honestly thought Nintendo would stop the drawing feature as there is probably going to be a tidal wave of dicks on the final day.
Has the apocalypse shit posting started yet?
Why did the nip users always draw so much better then most of the burgerland or euro users? In anycase, Miiverse had some gold posts.
I hope that Iwata wouldn't have done this and that Miyamoto disapproves, they're harming so many games. It hurts, anons.
Why do they have to close shitpost central? Was it too offensive? Too expensive to maintain a bunch of kids erping and posting problematic squid pics?
Even if I someday do now for collectible sake and the few good exclusives. Literally half the fucking features aren't even gonna partially work anymore. Things not even five years old yet. If you're a dirt bag speculator or reseller, I'd be buying up as much Wii-U shit as possible right now. Because all this crap is probably gonna be rare as fuck not even five years from now.
This image speaks greatly to the current state of Nintendo.
Do they know? Are they aware of the end? Is all of this a lengthy death ritual like that scene out of the MASH movie? Failed consoles, half-assed E3s, the axing of Miiverse… Are these the calculated moves of a veteran preparing to take his own life with a bullet on his terms, rather than slowly wither away under the the spectre of cancer?
Anyone has the post with the autist hating risky boots from the Shantae game?
They still cornered the market on games for kids since all the studios for sony gave up on them. The only one who can even compete there is microsoft since they bought out minecraft.
The API is proving to be incredibly simple - it will likely end up being emulated provided you have a softmodded WiiU.
Why would Nintendo even want to shut Miiverse down? I seriously don't get why they would do something like that.
They'll just re-open it under a new name, but for the Switch only, obviously. The console was named like that for a (((reason))).
I don't think it is Nintendo fault entirely. Nearly every online service they have made in the past few years was co-developed with the Japanese internet services company Hatena. Flipnote Studio? Hatena. Splatnet 1? Hatena. Miiverse? Hatena. (If your wondering Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection for DS/Wii was Gamespy)
It feels like anything partnered with them has a
Contender for best thread on Holla Forums atm. Keep those memes coming goys.
anyone knows where can i download the OST for the nintendo mail thing that was released in 2011 but shut down later?
Top jew nips combined with retarded fanboys creates a nip version of Biodrones.
Release new thing, shut down old thing to make people buy new thing. Not a complex idea. It's how the Pokemon games have worked for the past several generations.
What the actual fuck is wrong with you, seriously?
Good riddance. It was a cesspool of weebshit + mass censorship anyway.
Coincidence? I think not.
Why? Didn't it start just a couple years ago?
Who honestly gives a shit? Getting rid of it was one of the best decisions Nintendo ever made.
The only miiverse drawing I'm proud of.
What did pillows do to you?
Someone should host their own Miiverse that you can somehow connect to via changing your Wii U's DNS server
Only the ones by kids are legit autism, the birth one is clearly some manchild trying to be funny.
Have some more then
it wouldn't be the same without autist kids and whatnot
Whoever hosts an alternate server might be just as autistic as them.
Everything is right in the world
There's still plenty of autism on replacement services. See sudomemo. The autists are just older.
4 and a half hours left to go. I'm using a really primitive method to back up the pages of some artists I liked (scroll down until the infinite scroll reaches their first post, then save as webpage complete). If you have any requests, post links to artists you liked and I'll try to package as many as I can into an archive later.
Hopefully the ones you can't tell whether they're kids or not are really kids and the future of imageboards, they are some top shitposters. I wish I had artistic talent, some of those drawings are enviously good.
Yeah some of the kids were funny and autistic enough that I can see them growing up to be imageboard users. OTOH if you played Splatoon, the plaza was always filled with shit like Steven Universe and Undertale.
wew. he hasn't made a post in months and there are only 3 hours to go, otherwise I'd try to contact him for you.
Oh, this hurts. I shouldn't have underestimate Miiverse.
is it just me or just about everyone in japan is good at drawing?
They're killing it and have no good replacement. Why, oh why would they kill something that they can easily carry over to the Switch, and forever forwards?
Post farewells, and final shitposts
The saddest thing is, I don't see anyone talking about this on social media. Less than 3 hours left before we lose a truly wonderful little corner of the internet, forever, and not even the hardcore Splatoonfags seem to care about it. Actually, even sadder is that I know nothing like this will ever be allowed to exist again. Nintendo wants to "grow up" by integrating into the "real" social networks instead of doing their own thing "for kids." And even if someone tries to clone it, nothing will ever have the reach that Nintendo consoles had or the input methods suitable to encourage everyone to produce OC. We should have cherished it more when we had it.
once more miiverse.nintendo.net/users/tukimikirakira/posts I wanted to post more of the other artists, but I couldn't help myself with this account. Her rough but cute drawings and her plain mii made me feel there was a good girl behind it.
I just didn't want that to be the last thing I posted.
Isn't there SwapDoodle or whatever?
That's the one. *I want it on Switch, though**
This one was hell. I gave up on trying to open all of her spoilered screenshots.
There's officially one hour left of Miiverse. I wanted to draw one last pic for old times sake and see the graffiti in Splatoon, but I don't think I am going to have time to do something halfway decent with my lack of artistic skill, so instead I'll be archiving until the end. I should have started this yesterday honestly but I was in denial about it.
My Last Regret
|> |3 ^ That one had my sides in orbit.
Let's be happy we could witness this bright flash of autism at least once.
Miiverse is imploding in its last half hour. Admins are absent. Smash community specifically is fun. Have at it:
And here I thought the japs were master shitposters, seems the burgers have them beat.
Yay, I'm in that screenshot. Finally I'm one of those Miiverse posts.
wow i am SOO SHOCKED wow who could have seen this coming? what a loss! i mean, removing any content is shitty so nintendo is still fucked but who fucking cares? you can still attention whore your drawings on the internet without this piece of shit
Good bye, old friend.
And just like that, it's gone.
Oh my god no. I'm actually crying.
Sleep well old friend
lol kill yourself
I'll just live a longer, healthier life to spite your dumbass.
So now I have a useless icon on my 2DS home menu.
my whole lief……. is over……… all i had was…. attention whoring on miiverse with Holla Forums memes and getting upvotes from 10 year old girls who think i'm a comedic masstermind….. what will i do now? i guess i'll post le sad songs on Holla Forums…. it all returns to nothing……
I managed to log in at the time of closure and it came to a like a half broken webpage version of Miiverse, weird. After going to back to Home menu and going back, it came back to the current ending error message.
I don't want it to go. Facebook and Twitter will never work as well as it did for containing shitposts and autism.
Some of the last posts.
And just like that, Miiverse is gone. Iwata's spirit is finally freed.
Here's all the porn I could find. The good and the bad.
That reminds me, any equivalent to Swap Notes, I think I saw something called Swap Doodle on FREeShop.
Any of you seen the Deus Ex HR Miiverse saga of Rick the fire extinguisher?
I was able to archive nearly 300 megabytes of stuff in the hours before it closed, including the last several hours of shitposts content on the Smash community and the Japanese Splatoon community. Sadly I overwrote the American Splatoon page with the Japanese one on accident so I only have the last 24 minutes of that, however hours of American pictures should still be salvageable from the Japanese folder.
I was "archiving" by scrolling down until I reached the bottom of a user's profile (sometimes over 1000 posts), or as far down on the community pages as I could, manually opening every spoiled image, then saving the entire page as complete HTML. Incredibly autistic and time consuming, but I was able to preserve the profiles and communities as they looked in their final moments.
IF YOU HAVE ANY MIIVERSE TABS OPEN, THE CONTENTS CAN STILL BE SAVED IN THIS MANNER, AS THE IMAGES ARE STILL BEING HOSTED ON CLOUDFRONT. Act now before they (((shut it down))) or your browser backgrounds the tab, and be very careful not to left click on anything, or your browser will navigate away and you'll lose it.
Unfortunately, Nintendo decided to send me one final fuck you by removing the file extensions from all images, making it really inconvenient to look at them with your file explorer (either manually opening them or renaming them to PNGs works). Particularly annoying is that Nintendo used PNG for drawings and JPG for screenshots, so you can either guess based on file size or hope your image viewer is smart enough to ignore an incorrect extension. I plan to fix them later with a batch job so I can have an easily accessible collection of my favorite Miiverse artists' pictures. However, if anyone likes, I could upload the collection right now as is so you can at least browse through them in your web browser. Or I could upload just the Smash page so anons that missed it can have a giggle at that. Let me know what you want.
My final miiverse regret (other than not using it more when it was alive) is that I found the famous loli artist zankuro 's Miiverse account a long time ago, that he drew a few nonlewd pictures on before disappearing, but I didn't have time today to figure out which alt account I followed him on and find his profile, so most likely those pics are gone forever.
Thanks for your efforts user.
I never used the Miiverse but this still makes me sad, why would they do this?
Because the time and money cost for curating and moderating a social network aimed at children is pretty much astro-fucking-nomical, and because of the slow OS on the Wii U and the 3DS it was a pain in the ass to use so it went largely unnoticed, which was a shame because some games had some fun ways to use it.
They're still using it on the Switch, what a progress!
Because Nintendo are filled with greedy, out of touch pieces of shit.
Can you post everything to a MEGA, user?
I think I have a few days worth of the american page saved. I'll upload what I have and you can see if it's what you need.
I'm really gonna miss miiverse I didn't use it much after the first 6 months of the wii u's launch except for splatoon occasionally but I'm still really sad about its end.
I was able to get my last post before the e-mail that way, but I forgot to save all the salt from a Mario Maker level I made.
Miiverse died for this.
All in all, I regret not buying splatoon and a wiiu
I still want to know how Splatoon 2 art works, and how it is selected.
And I'm not willing to buy a Switch plus shitty and overpriced SD card and pay2online. No regrets.
I have no idea, but you can invade their nico nico videos and spam "NIGGERS" whenever you can.
I will eventually if people want the art I saved. I'll definitely upload the community shitposts soon.
Thank you very much for both the archives and the help. My brain is a bit fried right now, I'm going to take a shower and either look into it after that or get some sleep and handle it tomorrow. I was going to use Irfanview's batch processing tools, but the solution you found is better since it will figure out the proper extension for me.
One problem, I'll most likely need to keep 2 copies of each image/upload 2 separate archives, because the HTML files expect the images to have no extensions, and I don't really have the energy right now to figure out how to write a script to change all of the image URLs. I should really sleep on it but goddamnit i don't think my autism is going to let me
we tried to tell you ;_;
I agree on the switch part, but SD cards are cheap as shit.
Seems like an accurate representation of the world's youth.
Well…this is the end might as well share some of my drawings too bad Miiverse was easily abused by ban happy mods which ruined a lot of good artist i've me during it time.
IIRC, Nintendo staff were initially working really hard on developing an algorithm that could recognise penises (for censorship) so they spent a lot of time looking at penises only to realise that there was an easier alternative. What was it? I cannot remember. I just remember either watching or reading the interview.
Here's to you.
I archived as much as I could in the last hours, though not as much as the user with the MEGA link above. Working on organizing it. It's a mix of shitposts, people saying goodbye, and the Miiverse stage in Smash
Meant to post this one
Yep, the only good game this gen and it's on the worst of the already bad consoles. If only online wii u emulation came in time.
Bayo 2 is even on the same console and better than it. It's fun but not the best.
Tell me they exchanged emails or some way to contact. It can't be like that
Today is a dark day for vidya.
sounds to me like the japs are no fun faglords.
I just seriously wanted to know more of my favorite artist other accounts where they post their arts,blogs, ect. But every time someone post any links to their other sites where they are more active Miiverse just deletes their messages or hell ban someone for repeating it, I just want talk, draw or laughs we used to share again with the many friends i made there i missed and now they are gone forever in my book.
Burgers are way more fun, you need to get that dick out of your mouth.
Why do you even come here?
Sometimes things work out OK.
I didn't ask for these feels.
I heard the server costs for something like miiverse were pretty low
Even Blizzard put their server costs as an afterthought in their financial reports. Servers are not expensive to run, MMOs use the money for pure profit, and/or to pay staff for the next expansion.
Miiverse was probably shit-canned so they could bring about a similar system behind the online paywall.
Yes and no, you must buy a specific SD card with a Switch logo and a character doodle.
What happened to those WoW servers running with early versions of the game?
Having fun != pretending to be retarded
Finally checked out your archive. You got way more of the Smash and American Splatoon communities than I did, so I'm not going to bother uploading those. Instead, here's the final moments of the Japanese Splatoon community page, along with a few shitpost threads and Japanese people saying their goodbeys. mega.nz/#!sWxXiIiD!SGvTwugXturlgpTXWNtZyqjD9gCQZmTbJlyCbbZfCYw Haven't gotten around to processing the artists' profiles yet.
That's fuckin' cute, but does that mean it's impossible to make friends on Wii U now? That's an even more serious blow to the functionality of games like Splatoon than losing graffiti if true. I left my Wii U on Miiverse overnight and I don't have the heart to close out of it
Miiverse was shut down almost exactly 5 years after it went live. What most likely happened is, Nintendo has been planning to shutter Miiverse for a while now, they were just waiting for whatever hosting+support contract they had with Hatena to expire.
I sadly doubt it. Nintendo is trying to appeal to normalfags now, they know that normalfags care more about Faceberg and Twitter integration than some weird social network for children and autists.
You can still add people from your player's list IIRC
Japs are fucking queers because of all the anime they watch.
we wanted to have some fun after putting up with the miiverse administration.
I don't give a fuck about nintendo but miiverse was a gift.
Miiverse wasn't something I used very often, but for the few brief moments I did see on the Miiverse Map of Smash, it was comfy.
Why are they closing it? I can't imagine the whole things costs more than 10 bucks per month to run.
So people will ditch that U and become a bitch for the Switch.
They aren't pretending to be retarded, they are having fun and shitposting. If you cannot tell the difference, this place must be hellish for you.
>What we grabbed is available on the Wayback Machine (web.archive.org ). The raw WARCs can be found on my profile archive.org/details/@drastic_actions Profiles are a few months out of date but at least they seem to have everyone. They have some of the final hours of the community pages but you can barely see anything because it can't infinite scroll. I wonder if they have more content in the "raw WARCs" but either way I'm glad they got a more or less complete snapshot of how Miiverse was at some point in time inb4 Nintendo DMCAs them or they change the robots.txt and archive.org automatically takes it down like retards I'm really surprised by the "7.5 TB of art" comment. I wonder how much of that is screenshots, because monochrome PNGs are tiny. Also wew, the guy in charge of the archive efforts got butthurt and tried to shame people for shitposting.
Thank you for your efforts. I'm glad someone archived more of the shitpost threads, I didn't get enough.
Just tested it, you're right.
You could say it's a bait and switch.
Ok, I tried uploading what I archived to MEGA, but my home internet is too damn slow. I'll upload tomorrow using my work's faster internet, then post the link when I get home. Here are some of my favorites to hold you over.
You guys are killing me i made a post 2 months ago bidding farewell to my followers since i wasn't going to be around when Miiverse was gonna be shut down since my internet has been down for 2 months i just wished i wouldn't had to suffer this shit so i could had made a proper farewell to my followers and friends there.
Can you still register friends via code?
By username, yes. was a false alarm.
NSMBU and Luigi's are so fucking empty.
No, this place is becomeing hellish my fellow redditor. The fault is for people like you that drag down the quality of posts and pretend it's a good thing
that's the psvita jimbo
I didn't ask for this
Go back to /a/ if you want to be a no fun allowed faggot.
Americans behave like animals unlike japs.
I feel like this is my fault somehow.
Was surprised today when I went to the Wara Wara Plaza and it was filled with Mii's and their Miiverse comments/drawings, has anyone else experienced this? I was expecting the offline default software to appear (eShop, System settings, etc) not Mii's talking about NSMBU, Smash and Splatoon over 36 hours after Miiverse's shutdown. I would assume it's just residue data but still it's weird.
Went and took a look number players Mii's related to those games and their sex out of sheer curiosity to see if there was any ratio between them, anyone interested if I post them?
It should be pointed out that on the download request button for Miiverse, Nintendo put up a warning that content that could get you banned would possibly prevent them from giving them you Miiverse images/drawings to you. I know that stopped me from making anything like dicks or whatever, it's going to be interesting to see if anyone gets their Miiverse download request denied because of what happened in the last hours.
How do you explain SD cards with Mario characters release date?
Yeah, mine still has old Miiverse posts and Miis. I guess they remain cached from the last time your Wii U fetched posts, but I wonder how long they'll stick around for. It's almost comforting to see them, but I'm a little sad mine caught neither a sentimental good bey, nor a rampant shitpost…
It's called "partnership". I mean i know that the big fucking sandisk logo is easy to miss, but a simple google search would've made that clear for you.
Are you a 60 year old boomer trying to figure out his new digital camera after being forced to ditch the polaroid?
At least my old camera is doing perfectly well, unlike your NorKorean smartphones, keep throwing away your money for their nuclear test fires.
Stop stuffing your mouth with dicks.
I got some old shit saved if anyone's interested.
Looks like there's more pics in my folder than I thought…
Gonna continue dumping tomorrow, there's still a lot of shit to post and that can wait. it's not like this thread is dying anytime soon r-right?
It passed 300+ so it's gonna die soon user.
Should I bother making a new thread later or…? Don't wanna come off as spamming.
If it's hit the bump limit I don't see why that would be an issue. I just want more excuses to keep posting Miiverse screencaps for as long as possible.
That's great and what I want to do as well
As long you put it's part 2 as this one dies and maybe put a download link some of the drawings if possible.
Is it wrong that I want Miis to be allowed on For Glory, even if just Guest/Default ones?
Make sure to make a thread when we get our ZIP files from Nintendo. Not sure what good way we can share them.
I can try downloading this entire thread using CTW and uploading a ZIP of that.
That might take a while though? We could always just make a new dedicated thread if they arrive too late. Just upload them straight to MEGA.
I don't to download shit. Doesn't dropbox let you see previews of image files?
So is that "I don't want to" or "I don't know how to"? Yes it does. You can use that if you like, just please avoid jewgle drive.
No shit. I draw a new picture weekly and my IRL friends never see my drawings and my twitter is barren of comments. I have no idea how shitty gay and trans comments get top viewing, but my drawings that can take two hours to produce never see the light of day.
