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 manage the site's Discord, moderate music, and take care of all sorts of odd jobs for the site behind the scenes. I'm almost always around, and I'm happy to lend a hand if you need help with anything, so don't be shy to message me, even if you just want to say hi~ ☆

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!
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.
SMW Music Section Manager
Greetings, fellow video games players. It's ya admin girl Nameless (or Hazel, if you prefer). I manage the SMW Music and BRR samples sections, as well as helping manage internal staff affairs. I'm obsessed with chiptune and making good music on obsolete hardware, hence my SNES music fixation. I don't hack anymore, but I continue to make music for the section. I hope to foster a really cool collection of SNES chiptune/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!
Site Owner, Userbase
Noivern here, I'm the site owner. I 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.
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 Hacks Section Manager
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.
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.
Good day! My name is BlooberryPi, though I can also go by Bloo or BlooberryPie depending on the platform. I'm rather new to SMWC compared to most here, but I'm dedicated to help with the moderation of hacks for Mario 64 and help where I can. I have a love for the Mario series, history, and video games in general. If there's anything needed from me, feel free to DM and ask!
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 Troll Hack Moderator
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!
Hey, everybody - my name is Doctor No (or Doc if you prefer). I started getting involved in the kaizo Mario community about 3 years ago as a mod and volunteer, and now I'm an admin for Romhack Races as well as a general ambassador for kaizo creators, players and content creators. I'm not a doctor, though I did write my master's thesis on speedrunning and kaizo romhacking. My Discord inbox is open, and you can generally find me across Twitch and Discord if you need anything!
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.
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.
Howdy! Call me E-man (The 38 is simply my favorite number). I enjoy drawing on MS Paint and level designing with Lunar Magic. My role as a staff member is to moderate the SMWC Discord server, where I am regularly active. If you feel the need to DM me there for any questions or concerns, don't be afraid to do so!
SMW Graphics Moderator
Hey y'all, I'm Flagpole1up. I've been hacking SMW off and on since about 2009, but was never that active in the community... Until now of course! After helping out a bit over in the Graphics section and hanging out in the Discord Server, it's safe to say, I'm fully on board. And while I do like the work of others, I do make the occasional Art and Hack by myself as well, so be on the lookout for that. I'm usually active on the Discord, so if you need anything from me, ping me there!
SMW Troll Hack Moderator
Hi! I'm Fawful. I have a Masters' in Computer Science (wow so original), and I help moderate primarily troll hacks and help run Romhack Races in my off time. Feel free to reach out to me anytime you need something, although if you want a fast response I'm more active on Discord than on the forums.
Hey there! I'm James and I help out with moderating the ASM sections of the site. You'll also see me talking and helping out in the SMWC Discord server, so feel free to say hi! If you have a question you can ask me on here or on Discord and I'll do my best to help, so don't hesitate to ask.

SMW ASM and Tools Moderator, SM64 Sections Manager
Hello, ladies and gentlemen. Major Flare is my name, programming is my game. I'm a fairly old user from SMWCentral, having come to know it since before it's grand wipe and registering soon after it, giving me more than 10 years of experience in SMW Hacking. I'm fairly competent with some kinds of ASM, like 65c816 (SNES), MIPS (N64) and x86 (Intel and AMD). That being said, my duties are watching over the various ASM sections and now, watching over the SM64 sections, while providing my ASM knowledge in readable and easy to comprehend texts. Got any questions? I'm in Discord as well. Don't be afraid to seek my aid.
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.
I'm a guy tasked with the music moderation part of the site, because that's pretty much all I can do right! I'm generally silently lurking around, so go ahead and contact me for music-related questions or just to complain about chileans no problem anything goes. I don't take requests, though, so don't insist pls.
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, I'm MiniMawile303, but feel free to call me either "Mini" or "Mawile"! I started my SMW hacking journey New Years Day of 2017 and started really getting into ASM on New Years of 2019. My primary project has been taking many of the mechanics from Celeste and implementing them into SMW in a full Kaizo Hack. Since I've enjoyed my ASM journey so far, I figured that being a moderator would be a great opportunity to not only help SMWCentral, but to also learn some things as I go along. I love trying to help people get better at hacking, so if you have questions feel free to DM me through Discord!
SMW Graphics Moderator
Hi I'm Nathan, you may know me as MM102, and I've been interested in SMW hacking and pixel art since about 2008 when I was 8 years old. Since then SMW hacking has always been at least a small part of my life. I only really got back into it during VLDCX where I fell in love with the limited but powerful graphical capabilities of the SNES. Now I’m a graphics moderator looking to help out anyway I can. I’m a little quiet on the forums but you can find me on the SMWC discord! ...also a dragon, DM me about dragons :3

Hey, I’m ThirdWall. I’ve been play-testing kaizo hacks for about 2 years now, with credits in hacks such are Quickie 2, The Sapphire, Riff World 2, and Hark World 2. I’ve been playing kaizo hacks for 3 years, and am working on my own hack as well. I’ve always wanted a way to give back to the community, and I feel like being a kaizo mod will be the best way to do so. I’ll be streaming all my moderations, and look forward to finding new creators. If you have any questions about a moderation decision I’m happy to discuss it with you on discord
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.
