Admin Notifications (or admin notifs for short) are messages the Miiverse Adminstration will send you, notifying you about one or several of your posts violating the Code of Conduct. Many new users will be shocked to find out they received a message. Many veteran users consider this "Stage One" of getting into trouble with the admins. Most of the time, five admin notifications will punish you with a two-week ban from Miiverse, although some people got more or less notifications before getting hit with a ban. A lot of people find the messages that the users can send back to the admins as stupid due to how they are prewritten and users can not add their own detail to them.
According to a user, if a post gets reported 3 times with the same reason. The post automatically gets deleted.
There are many types of messages the admins will send you. The most common types are violent content, hateful/bullying, sexually explicit, and subject matter not related to communities or games. You can respond to the admins, but only with the following messages:
- I understand - usually takes a day for an administrator to respond.
- I did not violate the Miiverse Code of Conduct - usually never works. Emailing or calling Nintendo is recommended.
- I have changed my Mii, Mii Name, or Profile Comment. - usually takes several weeks for an admin to respond.
These three messages are the only messages you can send to the administration. However, the second one, I did not violate the Miiverse Code of Conduct, rarely works. You can however, call or email Nintendo about the administration if none of these messages work.
A Reviewed Post on Miiverse is something the admins do if your post gets reported. Most of the time, when the post is done being reviewed, it will most likely get you an Admin Notification, however, there are rare occasions where post will be unaffected. There are other times where it takes the admins two months or so to give you your notification, sometimes even longer. People most likely never see this, however, because most of the time, comments or posts are taken down immediately if the post/comment is reported enough times. On rare occasions, the admins get confused and message other admins, and the post takes longer to review. In rarer occasions, admins forget to delete the post altogether and it gets stuck being reviewed.
Types of regular admin notifications
There are 2 types of admin notifications.
Type 1: "Your post contained (insert potential violation here), so it was removed. For information on the proper use of Miiverse, please see the Miiverse Code of Conduct."
This type of notification appears when a rule in the Miiverse Code of Conduct is violated that is minor, like multiposting or unrelated to communities or games.
Type 2: "Your post contained (insert potential violation here), so it was removed. For information on the proper use of Miiverse, please see the Miiverse Code of Conduct. Continued violations may result in restrictions on your use of Miiverse."
This type of notification appears when a more major rule in the Miiverse Code of Conduct is violated, like hate/bullying, sexually explicit content, inappropriate/harmful content, etc.
The only difference is that Type 2 really does affect your history with the administrators, but Type 1 may not be as big of a deal when the Administration considers banning a user.
