Warawara plaza no longer working, any help?

So my system has worked flawlessly since launch.  I was out of town last week, and when i got home on December 6th and powerd up the wiiU, none of the "most popular" game icons in Warawara plaza appear anymore...all of the NSMBU, ZombiU, Nintendoland, etc, are gone and have been replaced with the basic system things like Nintendo network, parental controls, friends list, etc...All the miiverse posts/pictures and mii's are gone and replaced with posts from "NINTENDO " and all the once diverse miis are now generic and all wearing the same colored shirts.

 

Figuring it was because i only had the first update from launch day, i went to settings and downloaded the second system update (the one from Dec 4th), and its still not showing the various games and stuff in Warawara like its used too.... if i actually go and load up miiverse i can see all the posts, and i did a test post on Nintendoland. the e-shop works fine, youtube, the internet browser, even did a connection test.... all fine, everything is great.... except Warawara plaza....can anyone help?? I am getting super frustrated with this, i loved seeing that up on screen what everyone else was saying and doing...tried everything i can think of (unplged console, removed sd card, poured through all the system settings menus) nothing has worked.... thanks for any help!!!

I was able to fix. If you have been reported with any post in miiverse, you have to reply that you understand and you also have to edit your post.Then it took a day or two for my plaza to work. Hope this helps!

POSITIVE UPDATE!!

 

     So I used advice from the other Warawara thread on this same board tweaked it a bit and it worked!!

 

Here is what i did: (I only had one account on my system, unsure if it works if there is more then that)

 

1. Create a new "dummy" acount and new "Dummy" Nintendo Network ID

 

2. Deleted My broken User account but NOT the broken Nintendo Network ID (It prompts you with this choice when you select delete user)

 

3. Create a new user and link it to the broken Nintento Netowrk ID from step 2.

 

4. Once you get to the plaza with the new version of the broken Nintendo Network ID , go back the user select screen and delete ALL the dummy stuff from step 1

 

5. It then asks you to select a user (pick the one from step 3, ie: the one you are trying to fix). it will then ask if you want this to be the primary account. click yes. Then BOOM! Warawara is back!

 

Hope this helps some of you at least!

What exactly does erasing the user data do? I'm at my wits end, and this seems like a viable option.  I'm just unsure about what this process will delete exactly.  Any ideas?

i spoke with nintendo today about this and they said they hadnt recieved any reports. the rep said he was gonna gonna create a trouble report and escalate it up so it gets looked at by the techs. this is annoying and takes away from the experience. hoping for a fix.

When I called, they said the same thing.  I really want to try the "fix" above, but I'm not sure what kind of data I lose if I delete my user. Is there anyway to backup the data and reattach it to a new user?

The only thing that helps without being to intruding to the system, is to turn the router off, start the Wii U, turn it off again. Then turn router on and start the Wii U again. It will refresh its MiiVerse cache in that case. You could also delete the connection from the Wii U. Turn it off. Turn it on and reinput the connection. Turn Wii U off again and start it up. This will also clear the cache. Or you can turn off MiiVerse altogether
