question: does swapnote allow this offensive material get to individuals that were not expecting it (get a note from a stranger) or does swapnote only allow communications between friends?

...cause i can completely understand the former but not the latter.

Only between friends.  And you had to actually give a child permission and your signature as a parent via the 3DS to let a child receive Swapnote stuff.  I was a responsible parent.

If Nintendo was a person, I would punch them in the face.  Goddammit.  I used Swapnote to "text" my daughter and ask her how her school day went.  Now I can't even do this anymore. 

That's not true. You could activate street pass on swapnote and send mails with pictures to other swap note users who also activated street pass. I sent pictures of a pussy  for a while. (It was just a cat.)

All the people who are complaining about this should be ashamed of themselves. You are as casual as it can get, because Swapnote was non-gaming.

I think you understood it wrong. The service was obviously for the "Hardcore". (Just not the gamer definition of hardcore.)

What if i used it to get Ace Attorney/Etrian odyssey art?

That would be the same as using the internet on a PC, so non-gaming. Likewise, reading/posting on a gaming website is also non-gaming.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

A shame, hopefully an enhanced version will be available soon.

Then again, probably not.



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

Who needs those anyways, we'll get Miiverse which is about a thousand times better. Thank all those people sending each other porn over swapnote. How desperate can you get (and why would you fap to 240p images if you can have free FullHD porn on the internet?)

Also thank Pokemon, I bet many children got some thanks to how easy it is to add someone on your friendlist you don't even know via X/Y.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I LOVED SWAPNOTEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD:



Never used swap note, but the reason for shutting down the service sounds stupid.

If true, then I guess the Miiverse art feature will be monitored like the comments and anything offensive will be silenced like a old school cold war era communist country.



I blame D21Lewis.

But seriously though, it's a really unfortunate turn of events. I'm betting that the issue was exacerbated by Pokemon X/Y and how you can become friends with complete strangers just by trading/battling with them (I was quite surprised on how easy it was to become friends, especially for Nintendo ).

Hopefully this means that we'll see 3DS Miiverse functionality soon, but it's still unfortunate that this great little app was cancelled because of a few bad apples.

Non-gaming is the new hardcore.



Even after leaving this site, d21lewis' legacy lives on!
