What do y'all think of my criticism? I think it's not very good at all.

In my opinion, 2017 and 2018 are the dark ages of the internet where people just have no remorse for doing shit things. Here's a few reasons:

1: As people who are getting smarter at level and world map designs for SMBX, they will frown upon those that haven't learned, some people take this to an extreme degree and just rant, acting like they think everyone should have known how to make a good level or world map, even when some people haven't gotten use to it (or they haven't played a lot of episodes and learn off of them, but in a way where it's not like they're stealing levels).

2. As more memes are created, they give reasons for people to hate others that support a meme that can be described as, "dead before it was even alive." This can just light the fuse of an argument bomb where the end result is like an actual nuke dropped somewhere and everyone is trying to hunt down this group in some sort of war. Sometimes I wonder if we're going to end up shitting the bed so hard we create World War 3 over the dumbest upon dumbest of reasons.
you act as if that the epic online hate mentality is anything new. Its a symptom of being practically anonymous online, and isnt going away anytime soon, and to expect so would be ridiculous, and honestly strip away some of the magic of the internet, as everyone will act as sanitized and sheltered online as they do in real life, which is no fun in my eyes.

going to your first point, I think that displaying negative feelings towards a newer creator about his or her creation is to be expected, and even if the criticism is harsh, its up to the creator to either try and understand where the harshness comes from or to ignore the criticism altogether. If a creator isn't ready for harsh criticism, then they aren't ready for their work to be judged in the first place. Now to say that all criticism is valid would just be ridiculous, but to say that extremely scathing reviews is bad is kinda dumb. The harshest criticisms usually come out of frustration from the potential of what it can be. and in that sense, the harshest criticisms are sometimes the most crucial to understand.

now for your second point, to think that arguments online actually mean something is quite pathetic. As I mentioned earlier, the anonymity of the internet allows people to express themselves how they truly want to online, for better or for worse. Many people use memes to communicate things to eachother, mostly jokes and references at this point, but communication nonetheless. Just as you see many people arguing what languages are more useful and practical in real life situations, many can argue how effective a meme is at getting its point across. To think that these arguments are a bad thing would be narrowminded.

I dont even want to get into that third point because its practically the same thing as the first and second points.



Anyways getting to the point of this thread,
I dont think that forced positivity is going to do anything in the long run for this site, so I dont really see the point in going out of my way to be positive. I'll be positive where i think it applies and negative where it applies. I honestly believe if you cant take the heat, stay out of the kitchen. I know my opinion isnt the only one out there, and I know people will disagree with my thoughts, but as someone who has and still is going through hell and back to be the very best he can, if you cant handle mean words, then you are nowhere near ready to handle actual challenges in life. Someone calling your level bad is the least of your worries in life, and to get caught up in it is quite pathetic in my mind.
So no, im not making positive posts. Im making posts that express what i want to say, positive or negative.

shitposting is neither and should be banned tbqft

The point isn't whether the meaning of a post is positive or negative but instead about the attitude and intention behind it. You can say something negative about a level, etc. and still have good intentions and a positive attitude behind your post

It might be negative for the user receiving the post/criticism but the intentions could be good.
Like for example someone plays your level and says that it has many flaws in it and you think the person wants to make you feel bad but in reality, he found the flaws in the level and you can now fix them.

Oh. Well it also depends on how you spell it out, I'll use your example:

Player sees 4 bugs/mistakes, and goes to the creator saying:
"There's like 4 bugs in this level. It's kinda sucky if you don't get it fixed."

Well okay.. Depends how you receive it, though.. But you have a point, I won't argue.

oh well, is it magical that people go beyond bounds of decency on purpose because they are not held accountable, because the pattern of "sanction of shame" doesn't work? Because it is an antithesis of civilization and it allows us to act out the worst of our natural instincts? This doesn't have anything to do with fun; the internet has brought us great fun in many different aspects, but it's a very very double-edged sword.

I understand the message of your post and I basically agree with the bottom parts, but we have to be very careful with drawing the line. Because the line between "a bit mean" / "a challenge for you to face up with" on one side and "getting abusive / giving hell" on the other side is very thin.

Be sincere and behave with integrity, both within the internet and outside. Anyone thinking they can use the internet as a law-free zone is actively abusing it.

It's not worth to use the legacy editor anymore these days. Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why.

Of course laws and ToS exist everywhere on social media and other platforms but it's impossible to enforce them.

It's very easy to enforce them here... Just ban the people who think some 12 year old doing their afternoon project first needs to toughen up and be ready to face the challenges of life before they can have fun.

you know whats great about the internet, and specifically about this website? you can block people. if someone is being annoying. bam. blocked. or you know. you can just ignore them. if i go on the subway and an old crazy guy is screaming racial slurs at me, I just ignore it (and it has happened, some guy thought i was Mexican and called me rude words that'll get me banned here). and to address what enjl said, you can do an epic block on any haters lmao
