Check Mii Out Channel: Thoughts?

I just download this new channel for the Wii and to my shock I am loving it so far. I mean it's not a game but I have sent about a year looking and being amazed at all the different mii's! I can't believe how good some look. Chicken Little, Darth Vader, 3P0, Stromtrooper, puppy dogs. I can't believe how good some people are at this!
The only complanted so far:
I wish my daugther or others could set it there on "Check out Mii" profile but it seems to only let you have one.
Also, I hate this, WHY CAN'T we give the mii's NAMES and not just two letters? Have see some great Mii's but have no idea WHO it is! What is the probally for at least giving us 5-6 letters for a first name.

Why the Check Mii Out Channel is a complete sham

He has a point for the general popularity contests, but not for the official contests: Make mario, make a pilgrim, etc that are much more specific.

My gosh, some people need to loosen up a little. It's only a free Mii channel, it's not going to be perfect.

The speculation I've heard is they don't want people to name things offensively or possibly invite lawsuits.

Judging has begun on the Mario Miis. It's a pretty good system. You're presented with 10 random Miis and you pick the three best. If you aren't completely satisfied, you can get another set and carry over the ones you've voted on before.

So far, I like it. I've been meaning to make some fun Miis but I've been too busy playing actual games. One thing I'd like to see added is a contest suggestion/voting system (like Everybody Votes).

Yes! Indeed, that's pretty much the main purpose.
