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.
Nester the Lark: Hello, NinDB world! Post your shouts here! (But be careful not to wake the neighbors. )

nocturnal YL: Guys, guys! I can't believe what I found in Zelda 1! The game features an Elimination Mode that for some reason not many talked about! I wonder if it's fun? (Don't actually try it.)

nocturnal YL: Hey, I can edit shoutbox posts! This is already better than Twitter!

Nester the Lark: It seems like Cadence of Hyrule should be more popular than it is. Are people put off by the rhythm aspect? Or the randomly-generated maps?
Jul 24, 2020 14:01:59 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ Might warrant its own thread, but I think mixing rhythm and other genres usually resuls in gameplay too difficult for many. I can't handle it well either, judging from my scores in Dedede's Drum Dash.

nocturnal YL: ↑ For me personally, it simply hasn't been considered. It's a download-only game (until now) from a series I'm unfamiliar with and didn't feel like trying out.
Jul 24, 2020 23:02:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Ironically, I did create a thread for Cadence of Hyrule, but then deleted it thinking there wouldn't be any discussion on it. Maybe I'll go ahead and make a new one.

Shrikeswind: Something to bear in mind about the shoutbox if you’re not already aware: It doesn’t show up on the mobile version of the forums. This shouldn’t be a major problem, but it can make it difficult to get into discussions for mobile visitors.
Jul 26, 2020 1:40:18 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Also the more obvious character limit issues, and the format not really being conducive to longer-term discussion. It’s useful but limited; threads definitely still have their place.

Shrikeswind: (Honestly, Proboards mobile is pretty bad in general, but...)

Nester the Lark: Not sure if this works on all devices, but you can force the desktop version of the forum by scrolling all the way to the bottom and clicking the "Desktop" link at the lower right.

Shrikeswind: I’m aware. I’m typing this from my phone. I’m just pointing out that, for people who aren’t aware or who may be casually checking in on their phone, the shoutbox won’t be visible on

Shrikeswind: Is there a Discord for NinDB, by the way? It’s very popular with them there young’ns these days, so it might help activity.
Jul 26, 2020 22:07:47 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: There is no NinDB Discord. There was a brief discussion of it a few years ago, but nothing ultimately came of it. I rarely use Discord, myself.
Jul 27, 2020 8:58:28 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Hm. Seems like it might be a good idea if activity picks up. Not to be a pessimist but I do have my doubts that'll happen though.

Shrikeswind: Okay not a Nintendo topic but I kinda need to talk about this because I just learned it and it's a thing so bleh.

Shrikeswind: You remember Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame, right? So apparently, 5 year old me was incapable of discerning male and female in non-humans, because *apparently* there's a female gargoyle, and the goat's a boy.
