    Now, we all know there's a slot that we can edit in our profiles that says, "Wii Username." Now... I have one question... What the hell is this? o_O;; Y'know, I really don't see anything on my that says anything about a Wii Username. Well, I suppose that it COULD be what "nickname" you want people to put you under in their address book, but I'm still puttin' people down with who I know them by. Anyway, yeah. To the main question... So is there an actual function where you register a "Wii Username" or is this just some randomly-named thing on the site or somethin'?

    It's you Wii console nickname that you set up the first time you turned it on (you can change it in the settings menu). It actually has nothing to do with adding people, I've added friends under different names than their Wii names, but it still works.

    Well thanks for your opinion! Seems like this thread is "kinda pointless" considering you probably asked this question thinking that whatever answer was given would be pointless in the first place.

    Actually, I do agree that it is kinda pointless. Not a big deal, but still just a little bit irelevant.

    Well, think of it this way: if they didn't have the naming feature, there's someone out there who's bound to complain about it. lol.

    Err... Well, that's just the thing... There isn't any actual "naming feature" as you call it. You can give your console a nickname, and your Mii a nickname, but that has nothing to do with this thread. o_O;

    ~~~~~~

    Oh, and to the "Saucy" nooblet... Think before you post, mmkay, bud? 'Cause you have no clue what the hell you're talking about, from the looks of it. If you actually READ my post, instead of reviewing it, planning on flaming it, and then doing so, you might have actually gotten my point.

    You can name your computer, why not your Wii?

    ONCE AGAIN!.. This has NOTHING to do with giving your Wii a nickname. This has to do with the "Wii Username" option on the "Edit Profile" page on the forums.

    Ummm, That has EVERYTHING to do with the Wii Nickname. That is what the space is for. You asked what it was for, and A MOD TOLD YOU WHAT IT WAS FOR...

    ... and yet you continue to snap back at people?

    What answer are you looking for? Really? You asked what the space is for, A MEMBER WHO RUNS THE FORUM answered you.

    O-kay then... Here we go...
    Now, if you read it over, you would realize that it has to do with what that slot's for, as you said... Now... Read Doomstress' post. The Wii Nickname has nothing to do with this in the context used in said post. Doomstress thought that I had said that you can't name your Wii, I'd suspect. Now, Bobby. Shoo, ya' nooblet. =D

    I'm sure the name you give you Wii will be used in about the same way Microsoft used the names on Xboxes. When you are connecting with other machines to play system link or over the network other people will be able to see you Wii's name and join your game or whatever. But until some multi-Wii games come out we won't know exactly how it is used.

    ok guys, to clear this up, if the wii username spot in the user cp is the one i'm thinking of, this was there since the wii came out because back then it was not clear whether or not it was the wii code and name that was important, or just the wii code. now we know that it is just the wii code that is important, so i guess it doesn't really have to be there

    I recieved my Wii yesterday and while I was setting it up I noticed it already had a nickname...it's nickname was "BITCH_LIPS"...I thought it was pretty funny, I guess someone in the factory was having some fun, but now I am wondering if anyone else has seen something similar???
