Fyi the SMBX Projects Discord is not associated with any forum. This was discussed at some point but topics are usually marked in some way as using a certain version in the OP (and requested to do so if it isn't apparent). Really don't think it's necessary tbh
Yeah, if that's the case then I guess it's really not necessary then.

what SMBX Projects Discord are you referring to?

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.

So i noticed my new rank, the Golden Yoshi egg, i'm quite glad and proud to have this :)
However i did realise that now my Level Reviewer rank is gone, am i still a level reviewer? I know i haven't really been doing reviews lately but i have been busy irl with exams.

Just leave a note in your sig saying that you're a level reviewer and people will still recognize you as such.

generally Level Reviewers are supposed to be go-to persons rather than regular reviewers

How inconvenient would it be if the Levels, Projects, and Episodes forum required topic approval before threads go up?

I feel like it would be an inconvenience in that it would slow down the posting of those sort of topics. Is the end goal quality control? Or what's the general idea behind topic approval? I feel like there might be better ways of enforcing subforum rules without waiting for approval.
I just want to know what introducing topic approval would do that isn't being done now.

Hmm...
Topic approval would be good in the sense that it would control what topics are posted, therefore meaning that only the projects / levels / episodes forums would consist of legitimate threads. As in, you won't be seeing a project in the episode forum, or no progress in the OP of a project topic.
However, making people have to ask mods / admins for topic approval could be slow and possibly intimidating to some. This is because that some people may feel shy / scared to talk to mods and admins in PM, fearing consequences.
Now, topic approval does sound like a great idea to ensure that only real topics are posted. But i personally feel that it would just be too slow, especially as no mods or admins are active all the time. Just add new rules to those forums telling users that they need to post in a certain way and it would be good to go.

EDIT:
ALSO, i just noticed i cannot open or interact with Spoiler Boxes, am i the only one with this issue or is this a bug now?

I'm all for testing topic approval a bit, as troll threads keep coming at a regular rate, and it should be possible to have an approval done within a day or two (anything further becomes frustrating for the person waiting). And since they're from first-time posters in 99% of all cases, maybe is it possible to implement that if you have, say, 10+ posts, you're exempt from approval? (A troll newbie wouldn't do the effort of making 10 legitimate posts)

If they make it so that posts are submitted to mods instead of becoming publically viewable, then this would not be as much of a problem. It could make creation of threads slower but if there was a maximum number of posts which once exceeded, causes this to no longer happen, then it may be OK.

And yes, quotes are broken.

Wild Suggestion Time

Prox and I discussed this matter on the codehaus discord just now, but I wanted to bring it up here before it dies somewhere in the void of instant messages:
With the growth of the community and the rising standards due to more and more people being introduced to the likes of Mario Brown, Ceave Gaming and other Game Design Youtubers, we pondered the ideas of ways to bring the community closer together and help each other learn.

The concept of an "ideas" topic came up, where people could get feedback on their level ideas, with other users chiming in and giving their suggestions on what could be done, but I think what might be even better is an entire forum dedicated to this. Think of it as a "Level Workshop" forum, where people can make threads about their ideas and request input, feedback, help or other thoughts. In the sticky threads of that forum one could find various links to helpful sources regarding level design, creativity and inspiration, but maybe also (if this takes off) various easy-to-understand tutorials with gifs visualising the process of design or even levels illustrating the development of challenges within a level (I'd definitely help out in compiling such resources).

There are many ways in which levels here can still improve, which is why I suspect the gap between average users and veterans who seek out this information by themselves to grow even further over the coming years. Making this information easy to access while letting people with more experience directly chime in on every idea seems to me like a way to close the gap while bringing the community closer together.

Beyond a centralised hub for sharing ideas and helping each other out, I've also pondered the idea of mini-contests putting creativity to the test. I haven't fully developed any ideas yet. The furthest I've gotten is "people submit detailed level concepts, everyone gets feedback and revises them, submits them again and the best ones are asked to design the level and face off against each other, with score based on adherence to their idea, execution, fun factor, etc..."

But that's just as an aside.

I'm interested to hear what you guys at staff think of this idea. Thanks for reading.

I don't see how it would turn out differently than a Projects forum but for levels or #smbx on the main discord server. I think you should probably demo the idea first in a thread, and see how it works out.

Alright, made a thread to prototype it. Due to it being a single thread it focuses on the community aspect more so than the "building a comprehensive design hub" part of the idea with various usage examples and tutorials. But if this moves over to a forum, handling that part in a sticky topic referencing various topics within the forum is how I would want to handle it. Just mentioning that so that part doesn't fall under the rug.

But it sounds like an interesting idea and i would certainly support it.
