An Error Code is a halt in the service of Miiverse. There are 2 types of Error Codes, an HTTP error (***) and a Nintendo-format error (***-****) There are several error codes that are associated with different problems within the network. The most common of which, is the 500 Internal Server Error and Error Code 121-5918 (Consecutive posting restrictive rule.) They appear drastically and suddenly without warning and may become frustrating to any user. While doing so, they usually linger for a short amount of time. However, in some cases, they can remain as a burden for approximately 12 hours. Some Error Codes can remain permanently such as when a user receives Error Code 115-1009, which signifies that they can not access Miiverse anymore.
500 Internal Server Error
"500 Internal Server Error ただいまシステムエラーが発生しております。 お手数ですが、しばらく時間を置いてから再度お試しください。 The Miiverse system is currently experiencing an error. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please try again later."
As stated before, this is the most common of Error Codes. It is an Internal Server Error. It's an HTML error common to other websites. It declares that the system is experiencing an error, which means that some sort of problem is being experienced on their end, like a server crash, or another OS failure. Luckily, Nintendo is quick to notice this, and gives whatever maintenance is required to end the inconvenience, if it is not a minor error, of course. This can be invoked going to this page:
Usually, users are irritated by this, which they follow by copying & pasting it, and adding it into a future post once the service is back online.

503 Internal Server Error
Similar to Error Code 500, this one implies that the Miiverse service is undergoing maintenance. There are many reasons that can be associated with this such as updates, bug fixes, or anything that would require the server to shut down. This is of course, temporary and most likely will add something minor. This Error Code is most likely caused by the Nintendo staff to work on the service.
This is a permission error common to Miiverse on all systems. It means either Bad Request, or Forbidden.
This is commonly seen when you try to Yeah posts that were deleted, or do things that you do not have the permissions to do, and therefore cannot (e.g, delete someone else's post, comment on a blocked user's post, view an admin deleted post, etc)
When you receive this error code, it means that something is wrong with your internet. The message that shows up for this says "Cannot connect to the Internet. Please check your network connection and try again."
This error code occurs on the Nintendo 3DS when Miiverse is undergoing maintenance. The only description is "olv.portal.error". It is impossible to get this if Miiverse is not under maintenance.
Activity Feed could not be loaded
This is a rare error, rarely occuring on new accounts. This usually goes away after 3 days.
This is a form of 500 Internal Server Error.
"You cannot add any more communities for this game to your favorites."
This message will appear if you have bookmarked many communities for one game, such as the Wii Sports Club communities, for example. You can only bookmark up to 40 related communities of a game.
This error code occurs when a post or comment is trying to be sent when another post or comment has already been sent 3 and 2 minutes ago respectively. This relates to the 2-Minute Rule. This is in place to most likely prevent spam and continuous posts/comments from the same user. Many people are continuously bothered by this and preferred if this was removed entirely.
"You have already exceeded the number of posts that you can contribute in a single day. Please try again tomorrow."
Occurs when a user attempts to post after exceeding their allotted amount of posts (30) for a day (05:00 AM - 05:00 AM). See Miiverse Redesign.
This error code occurs when a post or comment has managed to exceed the maximum number of characters it allows and is trying to be posted. The textbox already doesn't allow more than 400 characters to exist, so this can only be found by manipulating the textbox to exceed the 400 character maximum limit, entering more than 400 characters in the textbox, and attempting to submit it.
The error message that pops up says "You have exceeded the number of characters you can send."
This error code occurs when a user tries to follow a user that has blocked them. The message that pops up says "You cannot follow this user". This also occurs when a user tries to follow a user that they have blocked.
This error code occurs similarly to the 121-5920 error code. If you receive this error, it will say "You have exceeded the line limit".
"Unable to save because the maximum number of screenshots that can be saved has been reached. Please delete some saved screenshots and then try again."
An error code that occurs if you take too many screenshots.
As active and dedicated users tend to receive, this error code occurs when the console is permanently banned from accessing Miiverse. Certain users declare that this eventually goes away, but this is incredibly rare. This appears only on Wii U.
"Error-Code: 115-1009 Miiverse functions are unavailable on this console."
"You cannot access Miiverse with this Nintendo Network ID."
This is an error having to do with Nintendo Network databases. There could be 4 situations:
- Your NNID could not be loaded from the database from an error. Log back in after at least 3 days.
- Your NNID data has been corrupted from one database by an error. Call Nintendo.
- Your NNID data is gone because your NNID was either deleted or suspended, and the Miiverse database is conflicting with something not letting you log in.
- Your NNID is not currently linked to a 3DS or Wii U; even linking to a system will not fix it.
This error code appears when Nintendo Network services can no longer be used by the specified NNID. You will most likely get this error if you have lied about your age on Miiverse. It does not apply just to Miiverse, but to all services using Nintendo Network.
A message appears that says, "This Nintendo Network ID cannot be used." The Nintendo website says not to delete it before contacting them, but that isn't possible in the first place, since the NNID information can't be accessed. The NNID will most likely be deleted eventually by Nintendo. Nintendo 3DS users won't be able to go online in games that use Nintendo Network. (However, games that can connect to the Internet without Nintendo Network, such as Mario Kart 7, can still be played offline.) Until then, Wii U users will have to make a new NNID.
"You cannot access Nintendo Network services using this system. Please make note of the error code and visit support.nintendo.com."
This is a new error code. It occurs when you attempt to connect to a Nintendo Network application and your system happens to be restricted. The error has been documented to happen on the 3DS, but it's currently unknown if it can happen on the Wii U. It is a special ban because it uses the DeviceID in the 3DS's security chip. It's one-time-programmable + encrypted so it can never, ever be modified, ever.
"Online services cannot be used."
This error code seems to function similarly to Error Code 115-1009, as a restriction of Miiverse through an entire console. However, contrary to its description, it does not restrict other online activities; the Internet Browser, games played online, and the friends list seem to function correctly. This error code is only known to occur on 3DS, but it's likely it could occur on Wii U as well.
022-2815 is an account ban, 022-2805 is a device ban, and 022-2825 is a TEMPORARY console ban.
"Due to repeated incorrect password entries, you are temporarily unable to sign into Nintendo Network. Please try again later."
This is a Nintendo Network error that restricts you from signing into Nintendo Network and all of its services, including Miiverse. There is no known way to prevent this Error Code from happening. It can even happen if you choose not to type in your password. You used to be able to click on a game, enter the password after a message appears, and continue as normal, but it seems that this has been "fixed". However, it seems as if you can still access Miiverse through a PC or tablet. The "Please re-enter your password for your NNID" message still can come up on a Wii U, but you'd have to click on an NNID related software (i.e. Miiverse) multiple times. It is not guaranteed to always work.
This error most likely is in place to stop the efforts of people who try to break into a Nintendo Network ID.
