So far it's not too good.

We have a lot of duplicate Links, and profile icons of random Mario items. Random Mario Items.......to represent an account? Real classy Nintendo. Oh, and they had multiple versions of the Inkling Squid. Since they are all recycled icons, it should not be hard to add popular Nintendo characters like Daisy, Toad, Rosalina, and Kirby....among many others. It would be ridiculously easy to do. Nintendo even prepared 2D badges and icons for all of them...

But....they DID have the one I wanted. They just chose not to use it....

I suppose they could do it if it involved linking your facebook accounts. Like how it is with Playstation.

Never would have been allowed. Lets see how long it would have taken for 1000s of Gore & Porn avatars to added.

Oh, sorry didn't read the recycled bit. Where did they use them previously?

Or maybe even a Nintendo account, where it can be moderated. Because sadly porn can seep through the cracks for Facebook.

ALL of the icons are just older Nintendo art. The 2D Mario icons were made for a lot of the Mario cast.

Meh, I'm fine with the way it is currently. I hope it stays that way. Over all it's not important in the slightest. It's probably just the way it is because not enough people care enough about it for Nintendo to address it over all. So why waste time?

Probably wouldn't happen due to people abusing it sadly to put up things no one wants to see.

Well, it's very easy to say that if you have your favourite character in already.

I'm pretty sure he means that there are two style choices for Mario, Luigi, Peach, Bowser, Yoshi, & DK, but no options for Daisy, Rosalina, Toad, Wario, Waluigi, or Diddy(well in his case no options for Daisy, Sports Daisy, Biker Daisy, Retro Daisy, 2D Daisy, & Sprite Daisy). Then they waste space on Mario Items, like people want Mushroom, Fire Flower, Star, etc. options.

Personally being a vector artist, I'd rather just make my own stuff to add. But I can understand why Nintendo would never allow such a thing, as I said earlier it would more or less just be abused.

They'll probably add more later. Better than using Miis again.

You could upload your own profile pic on the 360, and only once did I ever see someone have a sexually-explicit picture.

But yeah the least they could have done is added more profile pic options. Hopefully they don't go the route of Microsoft (and Sony?) and make you pay for more. That's just a bit silly.
