Introducing Sudomemo Plus! A way to support Sudomemo while supercharging your experience.


What is Sudomemo Plus?

Sudomemo Plus (or “Plus” for short) is a service that allows you to support us while getting some sweet perks in return. Plus is not a monthly subscription, rather, it is prepaid on a per-day basis.


What are the perks of having Sudomemo Plus?

Plus perks include:

Flipnote Smoothing: Lines, curves, and edges are smoothed for a more natural look on Sudomemo Theatre. This option can be toggled on or off via the Flipnote options menu in your Flipnote’s details page.



Color Picker when Commenting or Chatting: Spice up your comments and messages with a splash of color! You’ll be sure to stand out from the crowd when using this feature. Monochrome comments and messages were so 2018…

Enhanced Audio: It’s no secret that the DSi/3DS’ microphones aren’t that great. With this option, we’ll do our best to clean up the audio when your Flipnotes are being viewed on Sudomemo Theatre. This option can be toggled on or off via the Flipnote options menu in your Flipnote’s details page.



Download your Comments: Have you made a comment doodle on Sudomemo that you particularly liked? By tapping the timestamp, you can visit the comment’s details page to save it to your system as a Flipnote.

How do I get Sudomemo Plus?

You can get Sudomemo Plus by:

Why does Sudomemo Plus exist?

Sudomemo costs hundreds of dollars per month to run, and most of this money comes out of pocket. With Sudomemo Plus, we can ensure the core features of Sudomemo (such as viewing/uploading Flipnotes, commenting/adding stars on Flipnotes, and chatting with others via the chatrooms) remain free and always accessible. Keep in mind that the features that don’t require Plus today will always be free. That is our promise.

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. Tap on “Creator’s Room” to login or make your account. After going through the setup process, you can post a Flipnote by visiting the Channels menu and picking a channel!

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. Go to the Flipnote Details page and scroll down until you see the “Report” button. Use this form to report it and describe why you believe it is a violation of the Terms.

Q. How can I block a user?
A. At present, you are able to block their comments, so that you cannot comment on each other’s Flipnotes.

Q. Someone is harassing me.
A. First, try your best to resolve the issue yourself on amicable terms. If you find you are not able to do so, collect evidence of harassment – this should include the creator’s Flipnote Studio ID, and any chat message or comment IDs, along with anything else that might be useful.
Do not try to get your friends to rally against them! This never ends well for anyone involved.

Q. Is Sudomemo split into regions, like Hatena was?
A. No, Sudomemo has users from all over the world posting onto one website!

Q. How much does Sudomemo cost to maintain?
A. The cost varies between $260-300 a month, and is paid for by Sudofox. You can buy Sudomemo Plus tickets at the Sudomemo Shop, or make a recurring donations via Patreon.
