Nintendo's Miiverse Dreams Of A Civilised, Spoiler-Free Online Community

Welcome to the Miiverse, the online community launching today with the midnight US release of Nintendo's Wii U, but before it can be accessed, one must read through the Miiverse Code of Conduct, portions of which may have been paraphrased from Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. Let's stroll through it, shall we?

Welcome to the Miiverse, where tiny people with icons over their heads worship a woman controlling them via radio waves!

People from all over the world are watching you guys. Act busy.

Even comments in your friends' posts will be seen by people all over the world, so be on your best behaviour. Imagine you're in the background of a live news broadcast, if that helps.

Like people post inappropriate or mean-spirited things on the internet.

Unless they offer you candy. Then it's OK.

Seriously, folks: don't post spoilers. No one wants to accidentally learn that (incoming FF7 spoiler): Aeris dies in Final Fantasy VII.

If I were a more rebellious sort I would take this as a challenge.

Are you a baby chick or a large cock?

Oh I have no doubt we will.

See? People are already having fun!

Even NeoGAF is represented, ready to spread its kind-hearted community spirit to Nintendo's online community!

In short, be excellent to each other, and party on, Miis.
