Sudomemo FAQ

Q. Is Sudomemo managed by Hatena or Nintendo?
A. No, Sudomemo is a project by Austin Burk (Sudofox) to recreate the Flipnote Hatena services on the DSi. While neither company have said that he can't do this, Nintendo and Hatena have no involvement in creating or maintaining this service. Sudomemo is managed by Sudofox.

Q. When will x feature be added? Can I make a feature request?
A. Sudomemo takes time to develop, please enjoy what is already here! If you have a request, information on contacting Sudofox is at the bottom of this page, please don't post a Flipnote addressed to Sudofox because it might get missed.

Q. How do I upload a Flipnote? Must I make an account to do so?
A. You must chose a channel to upload your Flipnote to. So far, user accounts aren't implemented so you can upload Flipnotes and make Comments without needing to register.

Q. What content is acceptable to upload on Sudomemo? What happens if I upload something that is against them?
A. Please familiarise yourself with the 'Rules' section. You can also check section 4 of the 'Terms of Use'. Both explain what content is against the rules, as well as what will happen if you break them.

Q. Can I upload some Flipnotes from the old Flipnote Hatena, which aren't mine?
A. It is preferred that you don't, please. If you really do want to post another creator's work, get their permission and lock the Flipnote.

Q. I have seen something that is against the rules of Sudomemo and needs to be removed, what should I do?
A. Until the report feature is implemented, please contact Sudofox with the relevant information for the content you need to report - this should include either the creator's Flipnote Studio ID or the Flipnote ID along with anything else that might be useful.

Q. Is Sudomemo split into regions, like Hatena was?
A. No, Sudomemo has users from all over the world posting onto one website! You can see how many users are from each region on

Q. How much does Sudomemo cost to maintain?
