That's nearly 17 terabytes of data saved by @archiveteam!

Those are some hefty numbers, but take note: It's not a complete archive. The archiver in charge of the preservation, "Drastic Actions," simply couldn't grab everything.  

"While we attempted to download and store as much as possible, given the amount of time to do the archive and the crawling we had to do to get what we ended up with, there is no way to know precisely how much we missed," writes Drastic Actions. "From Miiverse administrators deleting users and posts, users who hid their profiles, new communities created after the shutdown notice went out, to stability issues with Miiverse itself, many things would stop a complete archive of the site."  

They add, "Nintendo themselves did have the complete databases and assets available. If they still do, they could donate them to make this genuinely complete. As it stands, this is the best we could do."  

Despite its admitted shortcomings, Archiverse still managed to preserve a not-small chunk of the Miiverse. I found some of my old posts and looked upon them again for the first time in—well, quite a long time. Looking back, all I can say is "Clearly, I thought I was very clever."  

  

Unfortunately, some content is indeed missing. I can't find the exchange between former USgamer EiC Jeremy Parish and myself that involved communicating through sketches of Pink Floyd lyrics.

Thanks to DrasticAction and the work done. Miiverse was great and I think Nintendo is stupid shutting it out. Especially considering that currently there is not a single way to communicate with people on my friendlist. Nintendo should've least let it run until the new network is launched. Shouldn't been that expensive.

I was right along with you up until a couple days ago. I think the idea of Miiverse is a beautiful one. Its potential was virtuous in nature and was intended to foster a nice place for Nintendo fans to gather and share things.... but then, like anything internet related, it became a cesspool of garbage and one that could not be cleaned off. 

I turned on Splatoon 2 a couple days ago and like always, I ran around reading what other players were saying. After all, it's the only Miiverse thing we have left, right? Well, what do you think 80% of the kids/people were saying? "I'm gay" and "I'm not gay" and "Nintendo is gay" and "I shit on all you". 

Between the drawings of dicks, bad language and other things... Miiverse just couldn't exist in the way Iwata envisioned. It seems society's maturity level won't allow it.



I don't care about the Miiverse per se, but I'm still pissed that the screenshot function on 3DS has gone with it.

Is it really too much to ask to replace it with asystemwide offline screenshot function that saves the screenshots locally on the device and doesn't need moderation?

It was actually one of the few missteps from them over this past year. Just another in a long line of bad decision having to do with the Wii u.

17 terabytesworth of social media. That seems so little for years of activity. Also, now we have it all archived, we can finally choose the best Miiverse posts of all time.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Must not be much because anything I search for getting's no results. Games users, nothing.
