It does look like a good idea. Hopefully it works well.

Can an unfinished Metroidvania level be in the Projects forum?

Don't be afraid to share your thoughts, but also use your brain before you throw suspicions out there. I say this because we mislynched Taycamgame last game because he threw out a suspicion against me that literally made no sense in the context of the game. If he hadn't committed that brain fart, we would've been more likely to lynch one of the actual bad guys that day and not just a townie who didn't think before they spoke.

Speaking of which - are there plans to make the term "Projects" encompass smaller projects that might not be larger than a level? Since an unfinished level is still a project and it's often better to get feedback before finishing something, since afterwards people are less inclined to revisit it and iron out oversights. It might also encourage people to advertise and build individual levels and improve through them, rather than picking up an 80 level project where every level ends up being a grain of sand in the desert.

There aren't plans for that. I think those would also be better suited for Levels forum threads anyway if something like that were to happen.

I sometimes see staff replying to a post that breaks the rules and other times adding a note along the lines of "user has been notified about this post". Is there some sort of pattern behind using one over the other? I find the latter option to be much sleeker in any case.

I've noticed this happening for the past like 4 years and there seems to be no conformity to it. Would be interesting to know, though. Thanks for bringing it up.

Can the Staff of the SMBX forums make a small rule about avatars:
  • The small rule should be that you should not use a forums avatar that's currently being used by somebody else as your's without the original owner's approval?
Just saying that because some 10 year old is using my current avatar. :o

I think your case is one of very few cases where this could apply. In the case of most avatars though, I would imagine they originated from Google images and therefore the rule can't apply.

There's no pattern, just different preferences. At one point the staff agreed that the note thing wasn't necessary, but it ended up going along anyway after a while.

As long as they're not impersonating you there not really much of a point to this. Just ignore it.

Huh. Why was the reply chosen over the note thing, out of curiousity? As far as I can tell, the note is much closer attached to the post (which makes it easier to see which reported posts were already dealt with), doesn't bump the topic, feels less expose-y, makes sure the full message only goes to the user who needed to hear it in the first place and removes something that feels like it should've been a PM from the mod's post histories.

Replies weren't necessarily chosen, but in cases where a mod would do the note thing it was decided that a PM would be better. That decision was made based on if it was anyone else's business other than the staff and that user that they did something wrong, and at the time staff felt it wasn't so that practiced was moved away from. I do agree that it's better than replies because of the specific reasons you mentioned, and I try to apply that however the thing is all of the staff respond to situational things at their discretion and because of this there is no pattern.

If it fits into any of the categories or important enough to archive instead of being locked and forgotten about.
