So basically, to get into a group, you have to do something that would benefit that group.
So if you were to, for example, create a really awesome episode, you'd have a chance to be put into the level designers group?
Just for future reference, what are the requirements to be put into each group?

Level Designers: Used to be by application (any time) but now the group is dead and its leaders have been inactive.

Game Masters: Not really relevant anymore since Mafia and FF&R have both been archived.

Moderators: Accept applications periodically. Dependable and responsible users are selected by the other staff.

Admins: Often were mods that were promoted.

Social Media Team: Applications (not sure if they're still open, possibly).

Dev. Team: People involved with the development of SMBX2. Not a formal application process. People who have demonstrated a strong knowledge of LunaLua are usually invited or approach a notable member of the team.

Well, looks like I won't get into any of them anytime soon, xD
I even sent a level reviewer application a few days ago, but that never got answered.
Where you say the "other staff", does that include every other mod, admin etc.?

Yes, this is saying "new staff are chosen by the already existing staff". But bear in mind that since April 2015, all new mods except Spinda have been chosen through applications (which are rare).

Still using the legacy editor? Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why.

That's is quite interesting. Are there any groups on here I even have a slight chance of getting into? If not, then no worries of course.

The banned group. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Or probably any other group depending on which accepts applications.

RE: group colours

What colour would you guys like to have? Preferably something similar so we can get the best of both worlds but if there isn't any suitable replacement then say so.

It's hard to come up with colours in exactly the same hue range, but here are some suggestions, with comparisons to other colours currently used:

Current colour on top with 3 alternatives below. Specifically compare how searing they are on the right side. Personally I like 9911BB and BB8844 the most out of these.

The second alternative for SM and Devs both look like they'd be better than the current color. Maybe slightly darker.

I've been staying away from making them darker to keep them distinct of the admin and level designers colours. Could work for devs, though.

So, why is it stated that there are still level reviewer applications taking place, when I didn't get a reply to an application I made?

I'm pretty sure it has to be if a consensus decision by the staff, very close to one. Not all of the staff members are on 24/7. It took me two weeks to hear back. You can either just be patient or PM/DM a staff member who's online and ask them

I have a minor suggestion, adding a color wheel for pipes/other items, i need many different colors of pipes for my season level. Please consider my idea,

This is the whole reason for custom graphics. There are tons of different pipes you can resprite with different colours

Could we add "who voted what" functionality to polls? It would be nice to see who voted an option and who voted another one.
If you are interested in Mafia, RTD, or DnD, please check out Minigame Plaza. Unfortunately the server has been declining recently, and we would like people like you to join.
