Hi all

Sorry if I'm not supposed to be advertising a web site here, but I've had dealings with lots of you here and I was wondering how you are getting on with the Friend Codes (DS & Wii) system?

The reason I'm asking is because I've been working on a web site that will change the way you exchange friend codes forever (hehe), it's currently in BETA and is not even searchable yet, so I came here hoping to get some people to sign up to the BETA and see how you get on - I won't post the site in case I'm in violation of the TOS, but if it's ok I'll post it in reponse.

Here's what the site does:
  • Allows you to store you Wii & DS codes (for any title)
  • This then allows you to be searchable (by game title.)
  • You can befriend people on the site, exposing their friend/wii codes to you all in 1 tight package.
Probably sounds average so far right? Well, here's why it might ease the pain:
  • After you've registered someones code you tick a box, you then submit your actions and it will notify the person automatically
  • It retains the state of registration (you've registered the code/friend has registered/both registered)
  • It emails people in the internal messaging system and their email address requesting that they now register your code
  • If you email a particular email address from your Wii it will register your Wii - meaning all notifications go to your Wii as well
The main reasons for the site:
  • You don't have the hassle of not knowing whether someones registered your code(s)
  • You only need this one friend codes repository
  • If someone searches for 'Mario Kart Wii' then anyone who owns that title (or any other) will show up in the search results (easy to find potential friends)
  • You will be notified 'directly' when you've been registered
  • Others have created sites like this - but I don't 'think' they are quite as functional and provide the benefits it gives you
Bottom line - there's a little pain getting your codes in at first but after that it's as smooth as requesting a friend on XBL (well, nearly) in that your actions result in notification of your friend on the site.

If anyones interested in having a go then let me know, or just throw me out if I'm breaching Terms and I'll just have to wait until it's indexed ;-)

Cheers
Kev/Mantorok

Something strange is happening. There is a stranger on the site. He seems familiar but vague like a long lost uncle who hasn't visited in many a year.

Who are you again? Nyaa

hey buddy, good to see you and glad to see you haven't given up on the wii altogether.  it might be worth posting the site on the dedicated thread for online get-togethers (should be at the top of the forum).  also when you do that give your codes for any games you have and you play so gg can add them to the table

Seriously its a great idea, the only downside is that it requires participation from other people. This place for instance has been running for like a year now? And it's been slow to get the guys we want to come over and post on a consistent basis. But those who've stuck around have loved it.

In theory I would love to just copy/paste my codes over, but will everyone else? And I still have to go through the damn process of manually registering them on my Wii. It's just a shitty system they made. I think a few games circumvent it, those that recognise system codes like Elebits, Boom Blox, Prime 3. And Mario kart is great where you can just message someone with the code. ACrossing lets you take a pic of your code and wii system message it too.

I think they need to overhaul the whole thing and just have an online channel. Seriously though, I'm getting back into mario kart and I'm thinking about doing a weekly thing here, but I will have to gauge interest first on GGWeekly.

Thanks man, it's nice to hear you found it easy to use. As I said it's in Beta so it's pretty thin, but if I get enough people to register I'll pump it full of features such as friend-messaging, tournament organising, daily/saved searches etc. etc.

It also supports live and PSN ids, so it's not restricted to Nintendo products, I may even add a gaming-time indicator in the future so you can find people who not only own the same game as you but also game at the same time.

PS: I've added you to my horde, so when you've registered my codes tick the box and submit, I'll do yours when I get home.

Not until you register on my site. Nyaa

I'm not scratching around the forums looking for people who've registered me when I've got a site that tells me when they've done it Nyaa
