I don't think that's possible, but I wouldn't want to do it anyway. What's the issue with those users showing up in the memberlist?

This has been mentioned a lot of times in the past, but for some reason, nobody really seemed to care about fixing it.

Image

The episodes description still states that featured episodes exist and that you can get your episode featured on the mainsite. I belive this should be removed as it can cause a lot of confusion for newcomers.

Also, the SMBX.org logo looks kinda weird:

Image

Noitche how the SUPER letters are small, which looks fine when on top of Mario Bros. but looks kinda weird when beside it. It's kinda a minor nitpick, but I still think it should be changed.

Also, I still belive a lot of the icons on the forum should be changed to be more descriptive, and there should also be a direct link to the Discord chat somewhere (Like beside the Chat icon, or we could just replace that entirely.)

Edit: Also, the subforum bob-omb is cut off.

The Discord server is the chat, and the chat button links to it.

The "super" letters look fine in my opinion, but even if they didn't there are no large "super" graphics from SMB3.

I still don't see the issue with any of the icons, save for maybe a little inaccuracy with the edit icon.

Technically, the chat button links to a page on the IRC where you can go to the Discord chat, but I honestly think we should remove the IRC entirely and just make the chat icon go straight to the Discord chat, since the IRC is pretty much dead.

BMSaints made an edited SMAS SMB3 font which you can use for that:

Some of the icons are pretty nondescriptive (Like the edit button), and there's a lot of clash, so I belive some of them should be changed to more "Custom" icons that fit the thing they link to better. Also, almost all the icons in the Quick Links submenu are the same, which I belive should be changed.

Edit: Also, the episodes forum description should still be changed.

The only thing I can really think of that should be changed is the Edit button to maybe the Hammer Suit or a Hammer Bros. Hammer, keeping to the SMB3 theme. Also the Quick Links thing isn't that big of a deal, they could have no icons and be completely fine as well.

In each contest thread, be it official or unofficial contests, the contest's host states the rules he wants to use for his contest and there's many intersections / universal rules (obviously). It's repetitive to find them in every thread OP, and I'd say it's a lot more convenient if we have an announcement thread for universal contest rules that apply always or almost always (e.g. submit through PM), and whenever someone makes a contest, they can refer to it and only need to explicitly state what they would want to do differently / what needs to be specified (how many levels, what platforms are allowed etc).

Counter-suggestion: Get people to come up with interesting and original guidelines. Levels with 6/10 average winning these contests is pretty embarassing and I'm puzzled why no contest host tried adjusting their guidelines to encourage more creativity. By streamlining the contest creation process we're undermining this creativity even more and forcing people who don't want to use the reference topic to put a big bold notice into the thread saying that this arbitrary ruleset doesn't apply. And then there'll be the one person who still gets it wrong.

So today (January 24th) We hit 5000 users. So I decided to create a thread to celebrate this achievement. What else is there to say really?

at least 70% of those are either spambots or inactive users, or bananed users

Besides, the member count may eventually not stay over 5,000 forever. From time to time there's still pruning of bot accounts / inactive accounts done by the admins. We have about 2,500 people with at least one post, that's more informative.

And you'd think spambots and banned user accounts would be removed from that total. I used to use my adblocker, but I don't use it here anymore because it doesn't just remove ads, it removes anything with ads on it. The orange block, which shows an ad by Project Wonderful, a search bar, and an advanced search option is visible by default. But as soon as I turn my adblocker on, that box is gone, and I can't search anything without ending up using a topic's search bar, which would take too long to find something.

I'd rather just disable my adblocker on this site, and actually have a search box, than take the time to go on google and search for it

You can click the Quick Links bar (The SMW flip blocks in the top left corner) and there's a seach button, but yeah, I belive the seach bar shouldn't be on the orange block.

I was on my Wii's browser for most of the time that I was on here, and the browser is pretty old, so some images on here wouldn't show there. But now that I'm on a computer, that's not much of an excuse anymore.

Please, do something about the no requests rule...

Postby HeroLinik » Fri Jan 27, 2017 5:39 am

Right, I'm going to bring this issue up again despite the fact that I asked it quite a long time back, and still, nothing has been done about it yet. It's about the no requests rule.

One and a half years ago, the Requests subforum was archived, and graphic requests were no longer allowed. Various reasons were given, such as crazy graphics being requested and the fact that if you can't make a level with the graphics that exist, then it's a problem with your level design skills. Unfortunately, this hasn't stopped people from making requests, and the announcement was archived for some reason, and the fact that it was archived means that any new user won't even be aware that graphic requests aren't allowed, and they'll feel really silly just because they didn't even know to look in the archives for the rule, especially when there's been a lot of people joining after the announcement got archived, even more apparent if it's a veteran joining after a long hiatus. Just because the requests forum is gone it doesn't mean that there'll be less requests, and usually announcements get archived if they're not relevant anymore, and the no graphics rule is still relevant, so why was the announcement even archived?

Can something be done about this, like making a sticky outlining graphic submission regulations, one of them including no requests? One and a half years still going and we're still getting graphic requests, just because the rule isn't even apparent.

Forum Rules bars are an easy solution to make people attentive to this kind of rules. Because other than a sticky thread, it appears on top of the page and therefore is the first thing someone will see when posting something. This should help cutting down the amount of incidences.

I don't really know what does "no longer relevant" meaning. An opposite to Irrelevant ?
So I know the Request subforum has gotten archieved. Like the last year, I haven't made any request yet.. yeah, I can probably make a new graphics by myself. I only made an introduction of me and post my comments on other threads/topics. I think I shouldn't explain those. :? Eughh.
