I actually enjoyed it. I'm sad to see it go. Still, shoulda seen it comin'.
There's no point in having it on my 3DS anymore. I'll backup the save data and delete it.

Default swapnote done, miiverse soon?!

So people who use swapnote have realized that they discontinued spotpass so you cant communicate with friends rendering the app useless. Hopefully this means miiverse for the 3ds is comming very soon fingers crossed x!

Well, guys...
Nintendo Suspends SpotPass Usage For Swapnote | Nintendo News
Happy Halloween

Added after 27 minutes:

Messages can still be sent locally, if you want to send it to your friends or whatever and you bith bring you 3DS somewhere. Using StreetPass.
But still, it is too bad.

They could have at least released miiverse on the 3ds first.

I'll admit that I wasn't a fan of Swapnote from the start and I always thought it was a hassle having to handwrite everything when I could just hop on the forums and talk here, but I still enjoyed getting notes from others.

It just sucks that we lost our main form of communication on the 3DS itself. Hopefully they get Miiverse figured out soon.

So, finally one of Nintendo's greatest fears materialized... I fear for Miiverse and Pok?mon's voice chat. I don't want those to be shut down too because of creeps...

3ds needs a chatting service.
One that would show when you get a new message with an icon even if you were ingame.
A popup similiar to 'Achievement Unlocked'.

I was so crushed this morning! Got a few good friends from here, from my country, from all over the world and now I cannot contact most of them anymore.

I gonna keep Swap note though, just for all the nice letters and pics I got from all the wonderful people I met...

This is why we can't have nice things. Swapnote wasn't the best, but at least there was some form of messaging.

SwapNote was almost completely useless for me anyway.

I would definetely use an online instant PictoChat.

I loved Nintendo Letter Box. Chatting in 3D to friends I otherwise couldn't talk to.

I also liked the notes from Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma.

I know they were mass sent, but I like to close my eyes, and dream he was only talking to me.

I have just emailed Nintendo UK this,

What exactly is the point of removing SpotPass on the 3DS

All the people i chat to on this i have no way of contacting them at all now, now we cannot arrange to play games together or meet up in New Leaf etc.

It might be ok for people in Japan where everyone lives next to each other, but not here in the west.

Nintendo has really been straining their relationship with me over the release of the 3DS & the WiiU both of which i bought at launch, i have been let down & disappointed over this, but this is the final straw, i'm going to be cancelling all the 3DS & WiiU games i have on order & i won't be buying another Nintendo system again.

I think Nintendo is being too strict. I appreciate that they're trying to protect kids, but there are other, less strict solutions. And really...are parents so incapable of using parental controls?

Photos of minors? Yowch, that's gonna hurt Nintendo's image quite a bit. It's a shame since the system DOES have parental controls, and Swapnote could have easily been disabled...

I didn't love SwapNote, but I liked the idea of creating galleries to share with friends. But then again, it would be obsoleted eventually once Miiverse and Flipnote come out. Even so, it gets a warm farewell from me

thats a bit harsh, your gunna miss out on some really good (3ds for me, probably wii u too) games if you boycott them just because of letterbox

if you are friends with your 3ds friends here, organize games through vm or something
or see if you can add them on facebook or something else

but by all means, go ahead and miss out on all future nintendo games because nintendo shut down letterbox if it makes you happy

it is because this is the latest thing Nintendo has done, they are living in the dark ages, i have not seen nor heard about Apple, Samsung or Nokia making changes to their systems to stop people sending abusive messages or photos, with the friend code system you HAD to accept the friend in the first place, you cannot randomly send messages to people, the tiny number of instances this has happened & Nintendo cannot come up with anything other than shutting down the whole system, it is on par with MS shutting down LIVE & Sony shutting PSN.

I think the 2ds is at least partially to blame. Since it's aimed at a younger crowd its release is bound to increase the problem of minors with prohibited material.

I had been sending voice messages between a good online friend of mine on Swapnote but we're not really friends anymore, so it's not really a problem now. But it would've sucked had we still been friends.

It's the principal of what they did, shutting something down just because of young kids.

This is the stupidest crap Nintendo has done recently. I don't care that Miiverse is coming to the 3DS soon, Swapnote is still a very fun application. There is no way Nintendo can play "dirty pictures" as the reason for the discontinuation. People have been drawing "penis" pictures in Swapnote since the absolute second it was installed on their 3DSs. People have been attaching dirty, questionable, offensive, and terrible pictures to their notes ever since attaching pictures became available. People will do stupid crap despite.

Nintendo punishing the world for what a fraction of the users do is just wrong. It's bad business.

Maybe so, but not the stupidest thing they ever did.

Banning words like Microsoft, Sony, Halo etc from MiiVerse is incredibly stupid.

And developing penis drawing detection technology on MiiVerse is pretty ****ing stupid too.

Nintendo are getting more and more idiotic.

How hard is it to block imagines being sent?

How hard is it to make an age identifying system like on Face Raiders.

Oh...

I don't see this issue here.

Swapnote hardly ever worked right in the first place. I usually got notes multiple days late from when they were sent. And the service was bound to be replaced my Miiverse in a short time here anyway, so I don't see the problem.

I got the notification on my 3DS yesterday.
Didn't use Swapnote much, so it's not a big loss to me personally.

I get why they shut it down, but I don't get it.
Nintendo offers a service that allows user to exchange text/pictures.
The terms of service (without a doubt) should have included that it's prohibited that it's against the rules to share 'content of adult nature'.
parents age given the option of put parental control on the 3DS.

So the fact that still people are sharing adult material is in my opinion not Nintendo's fault and therefore they do not need to shut down the service.

However, if the service they provide gives predators a vehicle to carry out their vile acts I do understand that they shut it down.

It's not like Swapnote is the greatest thing ever, and it's certainly not the only way that you can tell other people that you want to play a video game with them. Ever heard of the internet? And also, Nintendo could eventually release a better chat system for the 3DS that will make everyone forget that Swapnote ever existed.

Nintendo are getting more and more idiotic.

How hard is it to block imagines being sent?

How hard is it to make an age identifying system like on Face Raiders.

Oh...

*Puts on Triple H voice* Closing Letter Box... Was best, for business.
that whole penis detecting software was a parody newsstory in the vein of Onion.

how do i contact all the people i added from various gaming sites then ?

the FC system is now rendered useless now & there is no networking facility on the 3DS.

Dumb, dumb, unless Miiverse is coming out very soon. It wouldn't have been extremely difficult to implement a parental lock for it. I'm surprised it didn't already exist. Or at least just suspend non-game photos...

I like how the pokemon crowd (which, don't get me wrong, I am certainly part of) kindof ruined things?

Like, you could do all this stuff before, but as soon as pokemon came out, swapnote gets dissabled.

Also, I heard about an article somewhere that said people are hacking eggs for wonder trade that when you get them they never hatch and they destroy all your pokemon in your boxes? Idk if thats true but if it is then wonder trade is ruined too.

Nobody did any of this stuff in any other games before pokemon...

No, that doesn't even make sense.

You might as well say that Halloween caused Nintendo to shut down swapnote.

I was half kidding, but it does kindof make sense. Everyone who just bought a 3DS for pokemon then got bored and wanted to ruin stuff for everyone haha.

But like I said, I was half kidding.

No, it makes ZERO sense.

Nintendo is a liar. If they can claim to be able to brick systems that do these kinds of things, then BRICK THEM. They shouldn't punish the 99 percent of people who use it responsibly and appropriately.

I think the main reason Nintendo is shutting down these services is that they were going to be rendered obsolete once miiverse came out anyway.

I hope Nikki makes a reappearance. Poor girl.

Through the gaming sites, not too difficult. And Kinvara's post basically answers your question as well, since you'll have no problem contacting them once Miiverse comes out.

Various thoughts:
  • Hahahahahahahahaha
  • They specifically said they would be monitoring messages in Miiverse to control content violations. They obviously know that this is an issue, yet they seemed surprised that this was going on in Swapnote? For that matter why can't they institute the same monitoring for Swapnote?
  • I feel guilty that I didn't have a chance to forward the last few special stationeries on to the people I've been providing them to.
  • Enough people were using Swapnote like twitter that I came to despise the thing.
  • However, I was using it to coordinate Nintendogs streetpass item trades over the summer. The other people stopped showing up at the Streetpass meetups though so I'm not sure it matters. I'll just have to use other methods to finish my item collection.

Yeah, I was kind of shocked when I got the notice on my 3ds, well, I guess I wasn't that shocked, since people will do stupid things like this. But it was fun while it lasted. And I had just unlocked all the stationary for it too. I never used it much any way, but my niece and nephew always sent me silly pictures they would draw. But I wouldn't receive a lot of the notes on the day they were sent, I got a few of them months later. Like everyone else is saying, hopefully Miiverse is coming now. I'm looking forward to that.
