Topic: Swapnote Spotpass Service Discontinued

Posts 161 to 173 of 173


Nothing wrong with having your Personal Messages checked is there? After all these years where people have mis-used services I think it's a companies right to see what you're sending to others. As for the Swapnote issue... People have obviously been complaining about the service somewhere along the line since, as far as I'm aware, Nintendo don't check notes sent through said app.

I'm sure the service will come back online in a few months time when Nintendo have found a new way to control it. But until then, everyone who did this should hang their head in shame...

^ I don't care having my messages checked since I don't send anything I don't want people to see(except maybe... those about the girl I like but I just don't want her seeing, before I tell her my feelings, so I don't mind a complete stranger checking ) I'm just saying I bet many of those guys complaining about tha lack of safety are the same that usually complain about the lack of privacy in social networks. XD

I already miss it now. sigh.

Well, I'm not going to delete it. One day, I'll look back at it, and I'll always remember talking to my friend who had to leave IRL through it, and setting up some game sessions on it sometimes, and getting letters from Nintendo, and sending drawn pictures through it. It was so much fun.

Then again, I haven't used it in months, either.

But ultimately, I think that they just closed it because they made no money from it... It was a free app and maintaining a server wouldn't be cheap. I just wish that they had given us a better warning. >.>

The only good thing about this is that I now have a few more blocks for other stuff available. Almost half my friends on my list were actual SwapNote friends, that's all we did was exchange SwapNotes, and now many of those friends are just on the list for no reason at all. A few of them got Pokemon X or Y, but a lot of them don't yet, and I miss talking to those friends. Well, I guess we're all suppose to be reclusive after all.

Friend list is full, I will be clearing room for Bravely Default soon though. Colors! 3D Gallery, My Blog

What a total disappointment, i had such a wonderful time using this feature, exchanging whacky art and what not....I spent more time using Swapnote than any 3DS game for crying out loud.

The app is useless now :/

This app has been useless for eight months now. Kind of weird to think it's been that long, actually. It doesn't seem that long ago.

In a galaxy far, far away, Swapnote was something that still worked, and people wondered where they got those stationeries from.

Good times, good times (but that app always took up to much room in the notifications)

Ha, I wanted Swapnote, but I realized that 3DS texting was not going to beat all the iPhones my friends had... I tried to sign up anyway, but there were like 30 things you had to do first and I got all "meh".



I'm gonna bump this thread so people can see, then I'm gone. I was the one who sent... a lewd photo. I was only, like 9 when i did. my god, i didn't realize i screwed up lives of people oops




Obviously you have to start small, like threads, then move on from there. Eventually you have a horde of skeletal dinosaurs to do your bidding.
