==Chat==
You haven't decided on a protocol yet for chat so I want to quickly jump on you now before you start work on that. I would strongly suggest that you use your very own protocol for the sake of security. Bots these days will DDOS your server and give you headaches and such you don't want. I also want to know if you are looking to make a chatroom type of thing on it too or not. [[User:Pinball wizard|Pinball wizard]] 21:59, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
:Thanks for testing! Wiiload must have lost the connection or something, since I use it all the time to run wiiconnect. First of all, I don't expect checking email to work, only the sending email. If you are using a hotmail account, then your email does not use pop3 or smtp, it is an http service, therefore it will not work with wiiconnect. If you have another email account though, you could try it as long as it uses smtp (you could also try using my smtp server, smtp-server.tampabay.rr.com, just put jsmaster@tampabay.rr.com in the From: field (and don't worry about the username and password)). I still need to add the tooltips. I had forgotten/not gotten around to it. Also don't forget the @ symbol shows up blank, but shares the space with the 2 key!

:: So, hotmail won't work. I searched on google for POP3 hotmail and this is what I got: [[http://windowslivehelp.com/solutions/settings/archive/2009/01/06/send-and-receive-windows-live-hotmail-emails-from-a-mail-client.aspx| link!]]. Doesn't that mean that when I put those things in the options menu it will work? And don't you mean jsmaster@tampabay.rr.com in the To: field? And I just want to say: I love to test this brilliant program. When everything works fine this will deffinately be the best homebrew ever made!

:::::Gmail uses SSL, which is not implemented in WiiConnect. For now, you could have your email forwarded to another account (such as and AOL account, which ''does'' work with WiiConnect) [[User:Jsmaster|Jsmaster]] 15:31, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
==Server?==
How will you host this? The website is on a Freewebs account, and Freewebs sucks for what your trying to do with it. I've got a server you could host it on, just it's on a residential internet connection so it might be slow. --[[User:Mjbauer95|Mjbauer95]] 03:03, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
== Spinning Globe, eventually? ==
I tried the current demo (timestamp in sig) and liked what I saw. One thing that I could see ''eventually'' happening is making the globe spin. I'm assuming that the background is a simple png or jpg image, so I'm going to suggest that it be made using either an animated png, a gif or some other means to make the globe spin.
This is simply a nice addition and ''copy'' from the News Channel UI. Another idea with the globe is like with Mario Kart Wii online player selection is shows where the players are from using the globe. This could be used by adding markers for where each known friend is.
Also, if it is possible, using our Wii friend codes (I'm sure I read it on this page) to have our Wiiconnect friends automatically be our Wii msg board friends too. Another is gathering any other game friend code data and having it stored in our Wiiconnect account.
It could be possible to use our Wii msg email (w[friendcode]@wii.com) through integration with the wii message board.
