I think the real issue here is people's perceptions. Miiverse was never supposed to be Nintendo's Facebook, where people can post about whatever they want. It was always supposed to be game-specific discussion and help.

The crackdowns on off-topic posts only encourage it to be used as it's intended, rather than as parts of the community want. Whether or not this is an effective strategy to encourage its use is an entirely different argument.

Overall, I think all but one change is an improvement; making it more difficult to hold conversations with users who aren't a post's OP was a mistake.

If that was the case then they shouldn't have communities for Youtube. They shouldn't be promoting peoples drawings in their Nintendo Directs. They wouldn't be bringing the Miiverse to non-Nintendo platforms where you can't even play the games in question. Etc etc.

Come on, Miiverse is supposed to be a community where you post and have fun. It isn't supposed to be solely for getting help and stuff.

Oh wait, so the 5 minute thing doesn't apply to commenting on other peoples' posts? That's not so bad, then. I mean heck, if it only applies to you yourself posting a new "topic" I think I've only done like 3 or 4 since launch. I don't think I'd be posting new messages of my own every 5 days, much less 5 minutes.

What exactly does that mean...?

Ugh. Way to ruin a great thing, Nintendo.

Trolls abuse the system. Nintendo reacts. Shocking!

What trolls? The fanboys that rushed to buy a rushed system and want to actually use it to communicate are "trolls" now? God, learn a new word to use in your pathetic defense of jackboot restrictions.
