Honestly, if I was him I would've outright refused working on this, I doubt any developer gets harassed by "fans" nearly as much as him. At the very least, I would purposely leave out any characters that I was constantly pestered by. I mean, he's not a genie for us to wish all our characters into reality, he knows what everyone wants by now... Well, I could rant about this more, but point is, looking at Miiverse, I don't blame him for how he trolls us sometimes, it's probably the only thing keeping his sanity. It's one thing to joke about characters with friends or even post ridiculous lists of what we want on forums, pestering the develop is a different story. >>

I'm pretty sure Sakurai doesn't even look at them, he just post his stuff and leaves for the day.

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

Miiverse is a terrible concept to begin with, and giving a company like Nintendo (aka someone with way too much of an obsession with controlling their public image) power over it makes it even worse.

Either that or this happens (only watch the beginning of this video):

Definitely way too "safe", but at the same time older gamers have to understand nintendo's business model of being a family friendly company will overcome anybody's free speech so long as they're able to monitor it.

Please undastanding since 2012.
Shadow4SSB4 is the greatest person in the history of the internet. May god have mercy on his poor soul and also tell sakurai to add shadow, silver, and big the cat to smash.

So one day on miiverse I typed in "Everyone stop requesting Goku for smash!" Then 3 min. later my post gets deleted because it was harmful.

Weird...

And then there's this article which shows some really crude (NSFW) drawings in entry number 8 that were allowed on MiiVerse :

Edit: NSFW means Not Safe For Work. The images in the second link are disturbing to say the least.

It's people like this that make me lose faith in Miiverse.

Things like friendcodes NEED to be able to be shared. I got busted for giving out my Mariokart Wii code to my friend that I actually know and I got a warning! What is the harm in sharing friendcodes?

What probably happened was some jerk who thinks Goku is reasonable in Smash flagged you because they got mad.

For what it is I think it's fine. Really, it's not a place to discuss political stuff or to talk with your friends so even harsh censorship is fine. MiiVerse is best as a general activity feed or a compilation of people's thoughts about particular pieces of software. If they want to be a bit heavy handed with what they allow to appear when I'm playing local-multi Wii Sports Club? By all means. Why wouldn't they be?

If you want to have a private conversation or discuss something on a public forum? Well use some other medium. There's no shortage of them.

I use Miiverse to look at art and post thoughts on games. I don't have any problems with it that are unique (i.e. not found everywhere else on the internet)

The concept itsself of a social network sort of thing for videos games is sort of genius even if it isn't needed. But it was always going to be censored due to nintendo's image and the child predator letterbox stuff didn't help.

WAT!

When you see a post saying "Any 11 year old girls want to Wii U chat with me or skype?" it becomes fairly apparent why the moderation needs to be heavy handed.

I think it may be the case that Sakurai doesn't even read English. I mean, his Developer Direct from last year was translated.
