I just block every large image that I see with a browser plugin. For the record, though, I'd prefer just enforcing the spoiler tag whenever appropriate. If I ever use my signature for project details I'm going to contain it in a spoiler, but I would probably shove a lot of content into that spoiler. I'd dislike to be limited to a tiny image if that were the case.

Actually, strictly speaking, what's more "patronizing" is the notion that people are too sensitive to be told that their bad levels are bad.

Not as in "the most popular SMBX forum" which would be true, but the idea that that popularity MAKES it "the SMBX forum"
Pretending to be THE SMBX forum works out to the point where it becomes that. It's a "fake it until you make it" sort of thing. I wouldn't call that extreme pride; it just works, and will probably continue to work. People will google "SMBX forums" and they're more likely to get this site, then all of the SMBX fans will continue to congregate here.
Honestly, I would completely agree with you if it wasn't just more beneficial for everyone this way.

Probably a silly question, but how about just a list of direct links to non-featured episode threads below the featured ones? That way people can just go to that page and type ctrl+F.
How about links to LPs of each featured episode where applicable?
As for the graphics, it's easier for some people who use SMBX's editor to look at a reference sheet rather than try to sight-search through the graphics folder to find the number of the NPC/effect/block/background they want to change. This reference sheet could reflect the order in which they appear on the editor so as to make finding them and changing them much easier. Based off of someone else's idea I made one for the NPCs at one point, but perhaps a more professional-looking one could be made for all of the graphics.
