See, this is why game preservation is important.
This game is defunct.
Do note the game no longer works at all without modifications. This is most likely due to the game's servers being shut down. As a result, further official developments with the game are unlikely to happen.

The Everybody Votes Channel let you answer polls and see what the rest of the world had to say. The service was discontinued on June 27, 2013. However, it is possible to restore all functionality (albeit using custom question data) by installing a RiiConnect24-patched version of the channel.

Unused Graphics

Nintendo loves these...

sk_EFaceNull.tpl is a dummy texture, with the word 似顔絵 (portrait) written on it. This image was most likely a placeholder/fallback for the faces of Mii avatars, judging by the filename and 似顔絵 being the internal project name of the Mii Channel.

On the Everybody Votes Channel servers, there are files that are downloaded to display results on a map. Interestingly, they can be viewed as graphics in a hex editor, kind of like ASCII art. There's a map of the United States that's unused which resembles the country in the shape of a peacock.

Unused Text

In the Cmn subfolder in Screen, there's a file called Layout00.szs.

In vote.brlyt, there's a poll question that was built-in to the channel for some reason. A poll with this question was added on May 29, 2007 in America.

What trick would you like to teach your dog?

In icon.cs.lz7, there's dummy text for questions that appear on the Wii Menu.

It is a question.
It is Option 1.
It is Option 2.

Unused Batch File

00000009.app has a file that's in the html .arc file named makeArc.bat. They mention the Wii's codename (Revolution).
