Nintendo has launched the promised browser-based version of Miiverse. You can check your notifications and Miiverse announcements, view your activity feed and profile, and explore communities. You are also able to "Yeah!" and reply to other member's posts (text only) but it does not appear to be possible to create a brand new post.
@ludist210 I'm working my way up there. I'm still in world 3 for on my "high score" run. Pretty highly ranked in worlds 1 and 2 worldwide.
The funny thing is on my friends leaderboard I almost never take 1st, but I have a TON of 2nds, even though the person in front of me is not always the same... it's split between you, Vofe, secret_tunnel and a bit of mastermind85 in the first world or two. At least I'm fairly consistent, even if you guys aren't!
I think they should keep it that way. If you don't own a Wii U (or eventually a 3DS), you shouldn't be able to post. I don't think you should be able to reply either. I'm okay with 'Yeahs' from non-owners. Keep it exclusive.
@cooliocuneo Yeah, they definitely should never allow signups on anything but WiiU/3DS/future Nintendo hardware. Opening it up beyond that would just lead to it being taken over by trolls and spammers. Hopefully people who do have an account will be able to post from other devices soon though.
I wish I didn't have to post in a community. Sometimes I want to say stuff that will appear on my 'feed' or whatever, but it doesn't pertain to any particular game. Is this going to be changed soon? I guess we can make our own NW community soon, but until then, I can't really post any random musings unless I go to a specific community.
Edit: I don't exactly understand what the point of this is if we can't post on it. I guess it can be fun to just browse and "Yeah" people's posts, but I can't see myself doing it often. The only other benefit is being able to take pictures and put them on your computer. That's actually a great thing.
It's still in beta. And if I'm not mistaken, the ability to create your own communities is coming in the future. You'll need an access code to be part of it and only those that are part of it can read/post. Though I'm not sure if you can make a community that isn't related to any game... though I suppose that doesn't matter if we just want to start a group for NWers. Whatever the game is fine really.
