Flipnote Hatena Weekly News: June 25, 2010

Hello Flipnote Users!

Here is what Aaron said on the weekly news blog:


Hello from all of us on the Flipnote Hatena team. This is Aaron at Hatena’s offices in Kyoto, Japan with another edition of our weekly news blog.

We made some updates to Flipnote Hatena this past week. If you haven’t already read the official announcements please visit the links below:

Starting from this week we’re also changing the channel that is used for the weekly topic from channel 8 to channel 7.

Unfortunately, too many creators have been posting Flipnotes that are not about the weekly topic to channel 8, so this move is being made to reduce the number of people posting to the wrong place.

Channel 8 will now be set as the “Practice” channel, so please be sure you’re posting to the correct place if you are posting about the weekly topic.

Lastly, if you’re a Flipnote Citizen you can help us to keep the weekly topic channel “on topic” by unlinking Flipnotes that are not related to the weekly topic. We’d appreciate your help with this if you’ve got some free time to help out.

This week’s new themes

The Flipnote team has created four new Creator’s Room themes that are available in the Color Star Exchange this week. Below are some screenshots and details about the new themes.

  • Two spiders with an eerie purple glow wait to catch anyone who ventures into your Creator’s Room! (10 color stars)


  • A variation of the previously released theme inspired by Lewis Caroll’s “Alice” stories, with silhouetted characters on a light pink background. (20 color stars)


  • Decorate your Creator’s Room with this theme inspired by indie rock featuring a pink skull, a broken heart, and a punkish rabbit and a bear. (20 color stars)


  • Add the excitement of a soccer match to your Creator’s Room with this theme featuring 2 silhouetted soccer players on a navy blue background. (20 color stars)
