IIRC the limit is 100, that is a bit low imo, hope they can make it 200 later on.

It has twitter/facebook like elements yeah.
Its great for the individual game communities because you can get opinions etc and it lets you know who owns the game so you know who is has it and who is just bullshitting

It looks like Nintendo is creating separate accounts for the different regions. Tezuka's and Takemoto's are there now for Europe.

I think BartmanAbyss is Bernhard Wodok (Shin'en). "Bartman" was his alias when he was at Abyss. Just saw the name on the Nano Assault leaderboard - unsurprisingly, he's pretty high up. :)

I had misgivings about this being turned into a self-promotion thing, but I guess since most of the Twitter threads are like that anyway, maybe that'll be okay. Unless others object to it.

After everyone was raving about Jeremy Parish's Swapnote activity, I'm happy to finally be able to see it firsthand on Miiverse!

BTW, he announced on Twitter he's going to draw a sketch for every single level in NSMBU as he goes through the game, and I think he started already. It's pretty neat.

(Nintendo) Marty Born - NintendoMarty [Marty]

His profile comment says: "Hi, I'm Marty from Nintendo of Europe."

I don't think he's a dev, but he obviously works for Nintendo in some way since he has the ✓ on his Mii. A quick search on LinkedIn shows a guy named Marty Born who works for NoE under "Administrator Product Planning", so I want to think this is him.

Added Manfred and Bernhard from Shin'en to the list. I wonder if Martin Sauter is on Miiverse as well?

Bill Trinen might be there, as trintran (his Twitter handle). Same Mii.

I just saw Katsuhiro Harada post on the Tekken community. His NNID is HARADA_TEKKEN. He has a little web browser icon by the yeah button with a link to his Twitter on it. The Miiverse seems to have a few hidden features.

I just read that post and didn't even realize the check mark by his pic. Good to see devs posting and mingling with the community.

It's essentially a heavily-policed, clean-cut fusion of Twitter, 4chan and DeviantArt, which is a lot better than it sounds, all seamlessly integrated into the console hub/gaming experience. It's extremely well-thought out, and a lot of fun.
