User IDs are live now for the switch

Post by fulhamben » Mon Feb 20, 2017 10:17 pm

Thought I'd give this it's own slot so everyone can get a good heads up. There will be a new user ID for the switch and you can pick your name now. It can be done on the Nintendo my account. Go to settings, user information, user ID and try and get the name that you want. Happy hunting

I've done this already after seeing a thread on NeoGaf a short time ago, weirdly enough you can't have uppercase letters.

So I did do it, I didn't realise you had to change your password and thought it was a mistake on the site,

My user ID is richarduk it is a shame it is only lower case letters as it does not look as good

I've done it too and my username is thefatplumber to continue my naming trend. I'd have preferred to be able to use uppercase too, I don't see why not, but I have my username.

So what will happen to our NNID's? Or is that still being used.
I am the reason, the answer and the problem.

I am not really sure but from what I understand these IDs are like Xbox gamertags or Psn accounts where all your downloads are saved to your ID and not the console, so if you change your console you don't lose everything, I am however guessing it does not save your save data like Xbox does

Added mine, not that anyone was going to go with the name genericaperson anyway which is something I prefer using nowadays even if some accounts I'm using are still under the near all capital letters username I had on ONM.

In reflection of my new channel I'm starting eventually I went for 'thechosenone98' (had to add numbers - 98 being year of birth). As great as Nintendonator3000 is, I've rather gone off it in recent years.
Ever since joining the original ONM I've been a huge Nintendo fan (specifically Zelda) and am looking forward to some great discussions. I was previously known as Lego Master

What's this user ID for on the Switch? I thought we just signed in to our NNID's & that was it.

They've made an alteration to how you're known on the network now and you'll have to have a second username for you console. Your NNID links your profile to your account and subsequent systems (3DS, WiiU etc) but you now need a new, individual username for Switch. Log into your MyNintendo account and claim your name before someone else does as soon as you can before its taken by someone else - whether you're buying at launch or later (and I know you'll be buying later ;) )

I am trying not to read or watch to much but I have just seen a headline that the Switch is still going to be using friend codes like the 3ds, seems a step back and don't understand why unless they think it protects children or something but then there is parental controls if that was the reasoning behind the decision
