October 12, 2012: Flipnote Hatena Weekly News


Hello, this is Aaron at Hatena in Kyoto, Japan with the latest news about the Flipnote Hatena community.

We were amazed by the great number of moustache themed Flipnotes posted last week, and this is one of the most popular topics we have ever done. We hope you enjoy the Flipnotes we introduce in the blog this week, and thank you to everyone who posted.

Halloween is just over two weeks away, and we are happy to present a new weekly topic related to the upcoming holiday. We are looking forward to seeing your funny and spooky Flipnotes here on Flipnote Hatena!

Lastly, we would like to remind everyone to please not post Flipnotes to channels that have no relation to the content of your Flipnotes. If you take the time to post your Flipnotes to the proper channels you can help make a better viewing experience for everyone here on Flipnote Hatena.

Thanks for checking out the news blog, from all of us at Hatena.
