Known Wii-related hosts

I’m just listing these as I see them. I should make an effort to label their use as well.

* – Seen when message polling – Connection test maybe?

* – Weather data per location – Usually seen when a message is being pushed to the Wii Message Board – Seems to be used for retrieving data for the Check Mii Out channel – Same as above but for sending – Voting channel data retrieval – Voting channel data submission

Info about the Wii message headers

Posted by bigredpimp on November 27, 2007

It seems a few firmware updates ago, the processing of messages sent to a Wii user changed. Most, if not all, of the header information I’ve posted about in the past, while still valid, no longer applies to anyone other than Nintendo. That means: no more changing your displayed name & no more hiding the reply button (boo, was great for site mailings).

In my opinion, it would be nice to give users access to these things as they really don’t harm much and actually allow content creators to create unique applications using such features. To me, the message board is collecting dust and while I see Nintendo making advances to use it (the Check Mii Out notification opt-in/opt-out stuff is a good start), it’s still under-utilized.
