Nintendo of Europe's Marty has issued a new announcement via Miiverse regarding Code of Conduct and the sharing of Friend Codes on the 3DS and Wii U social network service.
This timely reminder slots in with the recent Miiverse update for the 3DS, and has likely been issued to inform first-time Nintendo Network ID users about the dos and don'ts of the service.
Over to Marty:
Since 10th December, it's been possible to access Miiverse from Nintendo 3DS systems, so I'd like to remind you about these two important rules:
- Do not post your own Nintendo 3DS system's friend code to Miiverse
- Do not ask people who you do not know to tell you their friend codes
Becoming friends with strangers may lead to trouble. These rules are designed to help you avoid such trouble, so please make sure that you follow them.
I'd also like to take the opportunity to remind you that the rules for Miiverse are not limited to the exchange of friend codes. Repeated violations of the Miiverse Code of Conduct may lead to restrictions on your Nintendo Network ID, such as your ability to post to Miiverse or your use of some other services.
To make Miiverse a happy and fun place for everyone, we ask that you read the Miiverse Code of Conduct thoroughly and follow the rules it explains. On the Wii U, you can find the Miiverse Code of Conduct under the Settings/Other option in the User Menu, and on Nintendo 3DS you can find it in the User Menu.
Don't worry though, you can continue to post Mario Kart 7 community codes and Animal Crossing dream addresses as you have been doing already. We hope that you have fun using Miiverse safely! That's all for now!
So, have you been a role model user since the release of Miiverse on the 3DS? Let us know in the comments.
