Latest News: C3 Results!
The results from this season's C3 are in! Come on in and take a look at who won:
After much consideration, we've taken the decision to archive the Français forum under International SMW Hacking, and create a thread for French-speaking SMW hackers to discuss in instead. Due to the Français forum's low activity over the past couple of years, we decided it's best to condense any future activity into a smaller home. Should the French-speaking SMW hacking community grow or disagree with this decision, we can always take the steps to unarchive it in the future.
We've also moved the SMW Data Repository from being a subforum of the Resources & Tools Releases forum, to being a subforum of SMW Hacking Help. This change better reflects the forum's purpose as a repository of information.
