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, SMW Graphics Moderator
I'm Hinalyte. My primary duty is to be of assistance to the staff team. I'm a bit of a graphics enthusiast here; I was a Graphics mod until 2016, its section manager until 2018, and the ExGFX Contest was my idea. I'm quite friendly, so don't hesitate to contact me about anything!
Forum Team Manager, Site Event Manager
I'm Impetus, the
High Empress Forum Team Manager. In other words, I handle forum moderation and the policies involved with that, making sure everything within the forums is handled well. I don't just sit back and tell other people what to do though! I also assist in other odd jobs and partake in a lot of RPGs in forum games, which kick ass and you should check out c8.
Non-SMW Sections, Userbase, SMW Hack Moderator
Noivern here. I keep an eye on the site's non-SMW sections. I also handle staff feedback from the userbase, help with arranging site events and contests, and moderate SMW hacks (preferably Easy through Hard). 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.
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.

SMW Graphics Moderator
Hi, I'm the invisible man Berk! I'm a part of the GFX moderation squad. Besides messing with GFX I occasionally draw stuff. I don't post very often but I'm activeish on the SMWC Discord server.
Feel free to say hi when passing by!
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
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!
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 ASM Sections Moderator, Discord Moderator
I'm Erik. I moderate SMW's ASM sections, so feel free to contact me if you need assistance regarding any of those sections. I also check a few forums, namely the SMW related ones, Computers and Technology and the graveyard known as the Spanish subforum. I'm a moderator in the Discord and an active member of it, so don't hesitate to DM me should you need something! There's a rumor that runs around that says I'm dead, but this is fake propaganda.
Social Media Manager, Discord Moderator
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 back on staff now to assist on the PR side of things, specifically the Twitter and Youtube accounts so please feel free to PM me if you have any questions or ideas for content!
Hi! I'm Giftshaven, but you may also call me "Gifty". My strengths around here are centered around music, and I moderate the SMW Music sections. You'll see me on the SMWCentral Discord server as well, checking the #music channel frequently. I'll be answering questions here and there. See ya around!
SMW Graphics Section Manager
Hi I'm Gloomy, certified(tm) aesthetics boy. Like my role clearly doesn't imply, I manage the SMW Graphics Section. Anything concerning it and the SMW Graphics Moderators should be brought up with me so I can fire them!

Founder, Coder (sometimes)
I'm the owner and developer (snrk) of SMW Central. I mostly see to it that everything is running smoothly server-wise. I have next to no knowledge about SMW hacking.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns regarding the site.
Eyo, I'm LadiesMan217! I bite more than I can chew when it comes to music soundtracks and am a blabber mouth when it comes to live chatting. Tbh, I never thought I'd be into porting music let alone have it define my interest career wise so I owe that a lot on smw hacking and smwc in general. I'm not a composer so much as a mixer and arranger so that's where I stand musically.
Hi, I'm Lazy! I moderate SMW hacks, preferably of the Hard and Very Hard variety. If there are any questions you'd like to ask me, just send me a PM and I'll be happy to answer them. In my free time, I create ridiculous nonsense levels.
SMW Kaizo Hack Moderator
Hi, I'm Linkdead. A kaizo hack moderator, speedrunner, and extreme platforming enthusiast. I work full time at a casino as a dealer/supervisor and part time as a Twitch streamer. You are welcome to come hang out with me on twitch and chat or ask any questions about smw or hacking. I mostly play through hacks in my free time and/or speedrun them.
Hello, I'm Maarfy. My focus is on ASM, and to that end I help out around the code-related sections. Though I tend not to say very much, I peruse the forums and the Discord often - should you need any help, by all means feel free to send a PM/DM my way.
I'm Major Flare, formerly known as FD Manuz, the OW Hacker. I'm an all-around SMW Hacker active here for a decade. My main interests in SMW Hacking are OW design and ASM shenanigans and whatnot.

SMW ASM Sections Moderator
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.
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!
SMW Music Section Manager
What's up gamers it's ya girl Nameless, and I manage the SMW Music and BRR samples sections. I'm obsessed with chiptune and making things I like on systems no one cares about anymore, and that love bleeds into the music section. I hope to foster a really cool collection of SNES chiptune, SMW music resources and offer a wide array of samples for every musician to use! The best way to contact me is on Discord, so if you need something let me know.
Hi, I'm NeXuS! I love playing super difficult games no matter what genre. My task here is to moderate the Kaizo: Light Hacks in the SMW Section. If you have any questions, feel free to send me a PM.

SMW Graphics Moderator
Yo watup its ya boi PercentN! I do graphics and pixel art from time to time, mainly foreground and background. I've been around for almost 10 years now (wow) so I've picked up a few things here and there. I don't post a lot on the forums but you can find me on Discord where I'll respond relatively quickly. If you have any questions feel free to reach out to me. If I am slow to respond, I'm probably in class or am working on a project.
Useless fun fact: I'm working on my MS in Computer Science, so that's cool I guess.

I mostly run the twitter and otherwise do PR things alongside that. Feel free to toss me PMs about cool things to potentially share.
SMW ASM Sections Moderator
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.
Forum Moderator/Public Relations
I'm Veck! Only occasional romhacker nowadays but active nonetheless. Along with my duties on the Public Relations team and being a Discord Moderator, I also help manage these forums to keep everything nice and tidy. This includes making sure people follow the site rules and in general act friendly toward eachother. Don't hesitate to contact me here or on Discord to let me know about any problems. I don't bite!
