Rather than saying goodbye, I'm now using this as the last chance to make 3DS screenshots. Wii U's fine, since I can use my screen capture device (and nothing interesting ever happens on the GamePad), whereas 3DS has no way of taking screenshots without hacking or hardware modification.

Made it in time to give a Yeah! Saw yours too!
It's been a fun ride. Even though half of my posts are for Project mirai DX which already has an in-game screen capture function for a lot of the modes (but not, say, Puyo Puyo 39 or the song selection menu), I'll miss it.
I may start to think about 3DS hacking (for region lock breaking, save backup and screenshots) now that it's becoming an offline machine (I don't use Nintendo Network often) but that's another day's story.
I've made backups of all of my own posts and posts I Yeah'd (browsers like Opera and Vivaldi have a handy save as .mhtml function, making single-page archival easy), and I may re-post them on Twitter. Until then!

I was there 'til the end, also. I've still got my profile page and the Breath of the Wild community tabs open, and I feel bad about closing them. I also went on a bit of a Yeah spree at the end and followed a couple of random people because why not.

I didn't know I've got mine because it went straight to the jumk mail box. It's 60 MB (both zipped and unzipped, which isn't surprising since JPEG images are already compressed), with 303 posts and 100 screenshots.
To those who are curious, the archived posts are made in form of a local web page, with posts laid out like the way they do in Miiverse, except that they are categorized by year and there are no sub-pages of each post (which are not needed because comments are gone). Trying to open the screenshots alone will show the image in 400×240 (3DS) or 800×450 (Wii U), just like in Miiverse. That's a pretty cleaver way to it on Nintendo's side, since they can just reuse the Miiverse's layout with the added benefits of the posts looking like actual Miiverse posts.
And just as I thought, this archive does not retain the stereoscopic 3D versions of the 3DS images.
Starting from August 2015, Miiverse went through a revamp that split the sumissions into three categories. I completely forgot about that, and assumed my August 1 post to be my actual first Miiverse post. I didn't post much before that, though.
I may repost some of them in Twitter if I feel like to. Actually, I already did for some of them.

It did better than I thought. I checked my own posts (username: nocturnalYL_JP), and besides a few missing pictures in the middle, they managed to get most of my posts and missed only my final day of rapid-posting.
Shrikeswind: Wait what am I celebrating about the excuse is that I had COVID for basically all of November. Wear your masks kids.

Shrikeswind: Anyways I'm back and I'm gonna get started on the Christmas thread soon. Any suggestions for this year?
Dec 9, 2021 5:16:22 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Can't be an advent calendar of any sort, considering how late I am.

Nester the Lark: Yikes! Sorry to hear you had COVID, Shrikes. Hope you're doing better.
Dec 9, 2021 9:39:56 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Nice to see you here Shrikes, and sorry to hear about you having COVID-19. Speaking of Christmas, the holiday mood seems to be a bit better where I work compared to the last few years.

Shrikeswind: Still coughing my lungs up, but yeah, doing a lot better now that it's past tense.
Dec 9, 2021 12:36:32 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Thread should be up tonight. I need to leave for an interview in a little over an hour and I hadn't even slept last night.
Dec 9, 2021 12:39:06 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Sidebar, I never thought I'd see the day where staying up to ungodly hours was a sign of health. Covid be wild.

nocturnal YL: Remember NinDB Top 25? My list would have been slightly different now, even if I keep the series composition: (24) Ys VIII → (18) Ys Origin; (9) Atelier Totori DX → (8) Atelier Firis DX.

Nester the Lark: I've got ideas for some posts I want to make. Now if only I could make time to actually write them...
Dec 21, 2021 9:33:15 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Finally finished this year's Christmas thread. Hoo boy has this been a stressful month. Sorry for the delay. And for that matter, sorry for any dead links in the playlists. No time to actually fix it, I need to get to bed.
Dec 24, 2021 22:36:11 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: I'll see you guys later. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Dec 24, 2021 22:36:52 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year! ^_^

nocturnal YL: It's new year in my time zone. Happy new year!

Spud: Happy New Year!

Shrikeswind: Happy New Year everyone! Technically it's still 2021 for me, but it won't be in 7 minutes.

nocturnal YL: Finally finished Metroid Dread. It's an alright game.

nocturnal YL: Random trivia time: in Super Mario Galaxy 1, it's possible to swim in lava. The reason is that the overlapping water allows the Ice Flower to make platforms. www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUmJLqo8kWg
