Administrators are the people who maintain SMW Central and make sure everything always runs smoothly, for the users and on the staff team.
Should you lose your password or wish to request a change to your username, contact one of the administrators whose role involves the Userbase via the e-mail in their profile.
Please only contact the administrators if you are sure your issue or question cannot be handled or answered by a regular Staff Member.
If you wish to bring up a concern about the staff team itself to the administrators, be that in how the site is run or a specific Staff Member's behaviour, feel free to use the Staff Feedback
Site Manager, Userbase
Hello, I'm Charlotte / idol. I primarily handle taking care of the Staff team and the Userbase (that's you guys!), and help to manage various site events, community efforts and other goings-ons. If you ever have any questions regarding the site, events we host, etc, I'm just a PM away!
Userbase, SMW Hacks Section Manager
Hey, I'm Eevee, and I'm here to help out with staff affairs and the likes. I will hack in my free time, and I'm always happy to chat; you'll find I'm very lovely and friendly, and that I'll always respond to any questions you may have for me, so feel free to PM me!
Userbase, Public Relations Manager
Hi, I'm FPzero, previously a staff member on SMWCentral from 2008 to 2012. I've been hacking SMW on and off since around 2006, created the original VLDC, started SMWCP1, and founded SMWC's Youtube channel. I'm both an administrator and Public Relations Manager. You'll also see me around the forums doing forum moderation and keeping the peace. Feel free to message me on the site or on Discord any any time about any concerns you have related to the site or our various contests or events!
Site Owner, Userbase, Non-SMW Sections
Noivern here. I keep an eye on the site's non-SMW sections. I also handle staff feedback from the userbase and help with arranging site events and contests. I've dabbled in SMW, NSMB, and NSMB2 hacking, but I'm not currently working on anything. Send me a PM here or a DM on Discord if you have any questions about SMWC.
Administrator, SMW Music Section Manager
What's up gamers!!!! its ya girl Nameless (or Hazel, if you prefer). I manage the SMW Music and BRR samples sections, as well as managing internal staff affairs on an administrative level. I'm obsessed with chiptune and making good music on obsolete hardware, and that bleeds into my desire to curate a fantastic and accessible music section. I don't often hack anymore, but I do hope to foster a really cool collection of SNES chiptune and SMW music resources for musicians and hackers alike to use. I'm a bit of an introvert, but feel free to shoot me a message on site or Discord if you wanna get a hold of me!
Administrator, SMW ASM Sections Manager
Hello, I'm Maarfy, Administrator and ASM Manager. I help out with the management, upkeep and moderation of the code-related sections, as well as general internal matters. I tend to be less visible as my work is primarily done behind-the-scenes, but if there's ever anything I can help with, don't hesitate to send a PM/DM my way.
Moderators are the people to turn to should you require help with any of our resource sections or the forums.
Please only contact people whose role includes managing the section you have a question about. Note that this does not mean you should ask them actual questions about hacking the game, please keep to the forums for that for both a quicker response and more input by regular users.
Should you have a question or issue regarding the forums, ranging from general questions about the rules, where a thread you want to make belongs or to report spam or an out of place thread, please contact the moderators marked Forum Moderator.
Contest proposals and questions go to the Public Relations staff members, who set up and manage every contest and event.

Hi, I'm Atari2.0, my job here is to moderate Super Mario World hacks. I'm an avid player and I like to also make some levels and games here and there. For any questions feel free to PM me here or on discord.
Discord Team Leader, SMW Music Moderator
Hey hey hey, I'm bebn! Music's my favourite part of video games; I love everything from SMW's occasionally crunchy samples to FM synthesis to the melodious beeping of Flat Zone 2. I also like to draw from time to time. I'm very frequently active on Discord, and I'm always happy to lend a hand if you need help with SMW hacking or well, anything else, so don't be shy to message me, even if you just want to say hi~ ☆
Hi. I'm BK, a hack moderator focusing on non-Kaizo. I've been playing Super Mario World hacks since 2017 and making levels since 2018. I am particularly fond of cape.
Regular SMWC member, just like you! However, tasked with SMW ASM moderation duties. I'm also a very skilled hacker in all areas of SMW so don't ever be afraid to contact me in that regards. I'll be glad to help you!
SMW Kaizo/Pit Hack Moderator
I make tool assisted speedruns of Super Mario World and some of its hacks. I'm interested in the game's mechanics and glitches, and in pit hacks that require abuse of them. If you want to see the TAS movies I've worked on, search for Super Mario World or Super Demo World on tasvideos.org
Yoshi's Island Moderator
I'm BTD6_maker (BTD or BTD6 for short), a YI and SMW (though mainly YI) hacker from the UK. I have been interested in YI hacking since around 2013 and am interested in making tools to facilitate YI hacking. I can also be found on the #yi-hacking channel on Discord. I will be moderating the YI section alongside XenonZed. If you have any questions regarding YI hacking or the YI section, feel free to ask me.
SMW Graphics Moderator
Hey, I'm Dakras. I used to be a hardcore lurker, but i've been active on the discord fairly often and i'm always quick to respond to DMs. You might've seen me in the Rain World community, but I've been interested in SMW hacking since nearly 2010, and making graphics/art and levels are some of my favorite things to do. Don't be afraid to talk to me if you ever have questions, need help, or just want to get to know me! (be warned, i'm going to mention Ecco and other games no one remembers.)
Bio: Hi! I'm Dan, the current and also former manager of the official SMWC YouTube channel. I'm your go-to guy for suggestions regarding our video content. In my free time I stream on my own Twitch channel and hang out in SMWC's voice chats!
SMW Troll Hack Moderator
Bio: Heya! I'm Deakula (Deak for short). Here on SMWC, I mainly moderate troll hacks. I've been playing SMW for the better part of 20 years. I TAS from time to time, I've been playing kaizo for about 3 years, and I enjoy playing all other sorts of hacks. My favourite trick is the midair shell jump. I'm an administrator for Romhack Races, I'm a bit of an amateur event organizer, I enjoy attending events such as GDQ for the benefit of charity, and I do a bit of hobbyist programming on the side (mainly C#). Nice to meet you!
SMW Graphics Moderator
I'm Deeke (aka =D=), and I help moderate new SMW graphics. I also can help people with any art that they might need, so feel free to contact me via a direct message or Discord!
SMW Kaizo Hack Moderator
Hi there, I'm DoDeChehedron, but to make things easy you can call me Dode. Many of you probably know me from speedrunning various Kaizo: Light hacks on Twitch or at GDQs. I set the record for the fewest number of posts (1) before becoming a staff member. I'm looking to assist in moderating the massive influx of kaizo hacks lately and I aim to provide insight to aspiring creators. I hope to be a useful point of contact when it comes to design do's and don'ts. The kaizo community has grown tremendously since the birth of this site, and I seek to facilitate its growth to maximum potential.
SMW Graphics Moderator
I'm Dr. Tapeworm and I moderate graphics and graphics accessories. Community-wise I'm more active on the SMWC Discord than on the forums, but you can PM me right up if you need any help with graphics insertion, setup, honest critique, etc those kinds of things. Just let me know if you want me to tell you if your work sucks or not! Don't forget to include the palmask, that's important and everyone forgets so I might as well drill it into your head right here.
And I guess that's pretty much it!
Hi, I'm dtothefourth and I have been involved in romhacking for more than 20 years. I've made editors for multiple games including the new SMB2 editor and a music composition tool for Genesis games. I'm well versed in ASM (6502, 65c816, 68K and x86) as well as most major programming languages and I've worked in almost every aspect of SMW hacking from blocks, sprites, music porting, sampling, sound effects, even procedurally generated levels.
SMW ASM Sections Manager
I'm Erik and, along with Maarfy, am the manager of the Super Mario World ASM Sections. You can contact me with any questions, comments, doubts or feedback regarding any of them. Just don't fill my PM box with coding requests as I don't take them. Around the site, I'm more active in the Discord server, and you can find me in #general, #asm or even #world-of-insanity. Feel free to DM me for whatever except for, you guessed it, requests.

German guy here, I currently am a student at a Gymnasium (kind of the academic high school in Germany). I have got some experience with ASM which is why I became an ASM moderator. Aside from that, I'm a more of quiet guy but also relatively nice. As a last note, you can call me by my first name, "Manuel" instead if you want to.
Hiya, I'm Meirdent (or just Meir)! I'll be around to moderate the various SMW ASM sections, and help out with ASM problems around the forums! An artist and programmer who is obsessed with bunnies.
Hey, it's musicalman! I'm a bit odd and obsessed with music tech, especially retro sound chips with limitations. I studied jazz and classical growing up so I have some theory background, but prefer geeking out with music tech rather than theory. I am also a perfectionist with my own work. A closely related interest is sound design and manipulating samples.That is one reason I find the Snes fun to work with. I look forward to continuing contribution to the site!

I'm an American TASer, programmer, and self-proclaimed SMW glitch encyclopedia. I've been involved with SMW and SMWC for over eight years now, and while I don't have as much time to dedicate as I used to, it still remains my favorite game to work with. Currently, I'm in the progress of commenting the SMW disassembly for documentation purposes, although it will certainly be a long time until that's done.
