But I don't want to have numbers in neither of those, and I'm sure other people doesn't want that. :p
And I'll just use your last statement for my argument: you may just add from recently played... or whatever.
@motherbra1n, I just told you why it's not that big of a deal; it may sound efficient to you but it's not that worth of a problem.
You're overreacting just because I forgot to put a "," just after "minute". I didn't mention about the reply of the other person, because that sounds really stupid to be done in under a minute.
I was talking about any jerk that puts its username to be really offensive to other people, and the network wouldn't notice this.
So if it's the cellphone number of Iwata you jump into conclusions?
@CrispyGoomba, I play the 3DS often, and you apparently missunderstand me. I'm just stating that the friend codes aren't that bad; and honestly they would be worse, but people are picky. I would rather remember a 12 digit number, it doesn't make me lazier, and another option would be being logical and write it down.
New Edit: and seriously guys, you just saw a concept of how the Nintendo Network works, that doesn't say anything about friend codes.
That's a terrible excuse, it's just as possible to have an offensive screen name on wii games as it would be with usernames. and really who gives a damn, you stumbled across someone online with an immature name, whooptido, you're not gonna lose sleep over it. and what do you mean im overreacting about your ","?
it may sound efficient to me? No it does not sound efficient to me, it IS efficient to not just me but the rest of the world. Once again, please tell me how friendcodes are just as if not more efficient without resorting to the "stop being picky" or "you're just ranting for the sake of it". Give some legitimate reasons as to why friendcodes are better, because so far you've failed to do so.
"But I don't want to have numbers in neither of those, and I'm sure other people doesn't want that. :p"
oh dear the tragedy of having motherbra1n1993 instead of motherbra1n, if only they'd scrap the whole system and give me 5849-3945-4950 so I can get over the fact that my username had 4 digits at the end
