If you’ve ever tried to find posts by a Miiverse user based on the nickname they use, it was impossible until now. You needed to know the Nintendo Network ID of the person and then search that, but a change to Miiverse yesterday now allows users to search via the nickname.
Up until now, you could only search for other users by Nintendo Network ID, but now you can also search by nickname. To use this function, go to User Menu ⇒ Search Users.
Please be aware that, although Nintendo Network IDs are unique, nicknames are not, so you may get multiple results when performing a search by nickname.
It’s nice to see Nintendo making small changes and adjustments to Miiverse as needed, but we really hope they take a look at some of the things we outlined in our 5 things to improve in Miiverse.
