Can't add friends anymore?

After my topic lamenting how hard it it to get into this game nowadays, I sent some friend requests to some nice people who offered to help me (_Signal and The21stgun), but for the past 2 weeks I've been checking my friend requests, and it is either empty or it gives me the 102304 error code. I looked up the error code and found that it corresponds to Nintendo cheaping out and disabling most of WiiConnect24's features.

Am I screwed, or is there still some way to add friends? Oddly enough, I played a match that gave me the friendly achievement, but it disconnected me before I could see who was in the match. But, if I can't get some friends, and a loadout to counter the supercharged rushers and one-hit-kill spammers, then I have no desire to play this game anymore.

The only way for new friends to show up for the first time is for both of the players to be online at the same moment after they've added the respective codes.

Not sure about The21stgun, but Signal tends to be on late at night and I think she left for a Thanksgiving trip or something.

In the meantime, you should just be seeing the friend codes (only the numbers) in your friends' list until the requested friend is online (if they added you back, of course).

Ah, thank you. I'm glad that it still works.

Oh, but you can't use the "friend requests" button since it was never meant for what people think it was. Plus, since WiiConnect24 has been disabled (I think?), it should be giving you that code.
