Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Have you been to Archiverse (the internet archive for Miiverse)?

Tagged games:

I remember reading a while back that someone was making an effort to archive the posts in Miiverse after Nintendo had announced that it was going to be officially shutting the service down.  Today, I decided to look and see if I could find any of my posts.  From the main page of Archiverse (https://archiverse.guide/), I searched for a game that I knew I posted in, but also being careful to choose a game that was niche enough to not have a ton of posts to sift through before finding something of mine.  I decided on Langrisser Re: Incarnation Tensei.  Sure enough, after some scrolling, I started finding my posts.  From there, I was able to view my profile and a list of all my posts that had been archived.

My first post on Miiverse was a rudimentary drawing of Mickey Mouse in the community for Epic Mickey 2:  The Power of Two posted on December 13th, 2012:

And it turns out that my last post was made in the 3DS community for Fire Emblem Echoes:  Shadows of Valentia on August 30th, 2017 which was about 2 months before the service ended:

"R.I.P Gray. If I liked you more, I might have saved you from perma death, lol."

I was aware that Miiverse was ending, as the day before, I had posted this somber message in the WiiU community for Paper Mario:  Color Splash on August 29th, 2017:

"I'll miss you Miiverse..."

Have you gone into the Archiverse to look up any of your old Miiverse posts?  If you do go back, feel free to share your first/last post or anything in between that you feel like sharing.  I'll continue sifting through my posts and share any others that I feel worthy of sharing again with my fellow gamers.

Wow. I found all my posts. I thought they were lost forever. Thanks dude.

Edit: I realized I posted a lot of stuff in some of those communities that were just for a limited time and those are lost forever, but the main ones are there. Awesome project.



I found it a few months ago. Apparently NintendoFanGirl and I had a conversation on Twitter and one of us mentioned Miiverse. My stalker wife found the tweet and wondered why I was on some social media site for kids talking to 17 year old girls.

That was fun.

It didn't have all of my posts. Nintendo gave us the option of downloading our Miiverse content. I wish I hadn't procrastinated. I had some cool stuff that's lost to the sands of time.

Yeah, same here.  A lot of my posts were lost as well, but it was cool revisiting the ones that have been preserved.  Like opening a time capsule.  I know what you mean about procrasting against a deadline to preserve internet posts.  I remember when Microsoft announced it was shutting down MSN Groups.  I used to be part of fantasy wrestling leagues called E-Feds where you would roleplay as either current or past superstar, or create a completely new persona of your own.  When they announced the impending shutdown, I did manage to save some of my favorite thread posts.  But, I didn't put enough time into it to save more.

No, but that’s fun, some of my doodles must still exist then.

Nice!  The last image I was using as my profile pic in Miiverse was Azura coming to Elise's aid in Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest.



Found some of my Art Academy drawings:

Classic Pac-Man (52 yeahs)

Eagle Nebula revisited (35 yeahs) *refinement of a less cleaned up rendering which had received 22 yeahs
