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: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)
May 6, 2021 9:58:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.
Jun 12, 2021 1:38:16 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)
Jun 14, 2021 10:18:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…
Jun 14, 2021 10:31:02 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.
Jul 8, 2021 11:28:57 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.
Jul 8, 2021 11:30:44 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.
Jul 8, 2021 11:31:13 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.
Jul 16, 2021 10:38:22 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
