As some people already know, Miiverse is getting a new redesign this summer with new features and improvements to be added. According to a post by Erika from Nintendo, here are some things to be expected from the new design:
Hi Miiverse friends!
First of all, I want to thank everyone who contributed their thoughts and ideas on the redesign of Miiverse.
I read through all of your comments on my announcement about the redesign and noticed that many of you had concerns about the posting limitation and changes to the Activity Feed. Below, I will try to clarify a few things about the reasons for these changes.
First and foremost, Miiverse is created for gamers to talk about games – to give everyone the chance to ask questions about a game/app, for example, or if you get stuck and need help in-game.
But over time, some people have started using Miiverse for other things, such as long chats that are not strictly game-related. These posts would prevent others from enjoying their favourite communities to the fullest. In order to keep Miiverse game-centred for you, we decided to redesign Miiverse, which includes introducing the posting limitation.
Some of you had concerns about other parts of the renewal as well. Let me clarify some of those for you:
1.) You will be able to attach screenshots to your drawings in the Drawings section.
2.) It will be possible to post the screenshots saved in your Album section into your Play Journal.
3.) We are planning to enable the posting of screenshots saved in the Album also into the “Drawings” and “Discussion” sections. This will be implemented sometime in the near future.
4.) Posts and comments made before the renewal will not be deleted and will be viewable also after the renewal.
5.) The Activity Feed will remain as it is, you just won’t be able to post in it. You can still see the posts made by your friends and the people that you are following.
Once I have more information on the renewal date or other new functions, I will post it here. If you have any further questions, feel free to share them with us. 🙂
Thanks for reading!
