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.
nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.
