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.

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.

Hi, I'm Tahixham, the resident goose. I've been around here since 2009 and I've been on and off the staff team since early 2013. I'm the Forum Team Manager, and I mainly look after the forums here, along with the rest of the forum mods. I'm also part of the PR Team, and I put out a lot of the tweets on the SMW Central Twitter account
, as well as help to organise some of the fun events here at SMWC. See you around!
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.

Public Relations Manager, Discord Moderator
Hello, I'm DeppySlide! (formerly Derpy Backslide, Deputy BS, et al) I've been on the site for over a decade, which was enough time to learn how to be a good staff boy. As PR Manager I've been helping to organize the site's many contests and events. I'm also a Discord moderator, so feel free to contact me if you're having issues on the Discord; I'm usually available to respond!
Hey there, I'm Devazure, and I'm here to help with moderating the forums. I have quite a history with the site, having registered way back in 2006. Some of you oldbies may remember me as A Yoshi, Aquifer, or Azurik. And if you don't, then hey, why not get to know me? I'm usually available via site PM or Discord DM for any questions or concerns.
Hacking-wise, I'm all about overworlds! They've always been my favorite part of any hack, and I'm incredibly passionate about designing them. If you'd like any tips to help you design a better overworld, feel free to contact me for that as well.
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!
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.
I don't really use the site at all, but I am incredibly active on the discord server, which I've been in since around 2018 I believe. I am not a busy girl and am available to help out 99% of the time, assuming I'm not sleeping. Contact me any time, preferably through discord but either works really.
SMW Troll Hacks 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.
SMW Kaizo Hacks Moderator
Hi, I'm GlitchCat7. I'm a streamer and musician. I've played SMW and other classic games since 1992. I've ran at multiple GDQ's including the Kaizo blind race at SGDQ 2019 and Cool Spot at SGDQ 2018 As a lifelong fan of Mario games, I have a great love for Kaizo. I also have a fuzzy orange cat named Mallow and he's a good boy. I hope to do what I can to help SMW hacking grow and thrive for a long time to come!
What's up? I'm Hooded Edge. Just some internet dude / SMW simp who spends his hours making SNES remixes / ports, pixel art (on the occasion), and streams every week. I'm all about them Old-School Platformers, Beat 'Em Ups, Boomer Shooters, Fighters, etc., and I'm also a Donkey Kong, Mario, Sonic, Mega Man, Castlevania, 東方Project, and Doom fanatic.
I've been into SMW romhacking since 2008, but only became really active on SMWC around 2019 when I started porting some sick beats from (mostly) sick games.
If you got any questions, my Discord DMs are open!
Hey! I'm icrawfish, but most people tend to just call me Crawfish (or Craw, on a lazier day). I'm studying software engineering right now, but I'm still primarily a musician at heart, and as such I help moderate the music section here. If you have any questions about that sort of stuff or about a port of yours I may have moderated/rejected, please feel free to shoot me a message!

Hello, I'm Losoall, SMW-Hacking-wise I've dabbled in a bit of everything outside of coding to have what i'd consider entry-level knowledge. I've been a part of this site for well around 12 years now, more active on the SMWC-Discord and our Minecraft servers. If you need to ask any questions from me, well...first off, I'm flattered, but I'll certainly make an effort to provide any help where I can.
SM64 Sections Manager, SMW ASM Moderator, Tools Moderator
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.

You can usually find me in the Discord. Feel free to ask me anything related to ASM or site coding - I don't bite (much). I post in the forums once upon a blue moon.
Hiya, this is Teows, but you may also call me Felix. My main duty as part of the staff is to take care of the music section.

SMW Kaizo Hacks Moderator
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.
This is Clock, saying hello! I've been on the site for a couple years now, mostly participating in level contests. I'll be one of your Discord moderators, so if you have any questions, DM me and I'll gladly help.
Hi! I love video games and programming since I was a kid in 2009. I have over ten years of SNES ASM programming experience and my life is pretty much that! I'm known for creating many SA-1 improvement patches and I'm currently helping SMW Central with everything ASM related right now. I'm always open for talking!
Hi, I'm XenonZed, and I handle the Yoshi's Island section of the site. I've been messing around with YI hacking since 2013, so feel free to come to me for help regarding Golden Egg, or any of the other tools for YI!
SMW Kaizo Hacks Moderator, SMW Pit Hacks Moderator
Hi, I'm xHF01x (or HF for short), an SMW hacker from Germany. I've been into SMW hacking since around 2013 and I'm mostly interested in the glitches of the SMW engine and hacks that require abusing them. You can usually find me on the #kaizo channel on Discord. If you have any questions regarding pit hacks, feel free to message me!
Our Site Helpers are users who assist moderation in Staff sections. Most helpers are non-staff users, and these are listed below.
Hello there, I'm Anorakun. I'm fan of old-school platforms like Sparkster, Castlevania and etc. I love ripping graphics, even thought I might not use them. I came back to SMW Romhacking after ten years of absence. If you have any doubt about graphics, feel free to ask me via DM or Discord.
Shiny/Ayami here, I help moderating graphics. I also rip graphics sometimes.
Hello! I'm Bench-kun. My specialties are pixel art and programming. SMW hacking isn't exactly a priority to me, so i'm not too active on the forums. I'm always on discord though! So if you need anything just send a friend request, then DM me.
Hi, I'm Fernap and I am a SMW ASM Helper.
Hi I'm Kevin and I like music
Heya dear one, name's Milon Luxy! Though, you can call me just Milon, Pommy, or whatever you think it's easier to refer me.
I've been always very fascinated on participating on the music stage, in general. Since then, I started porting a lot of songs here on the site, for everyone to use in your hacks, and then learned a lot of writting songs to SMW, and optimizing them.
And then and now, I am very happy to help the staff team on moderating the music section, as the same way they were always willing to helping me understanding the MML syntax, and the site section's standards.
If you have any question regarding any port moderations, or things related to it, feel free to send me any DM's on here, on in Discord. I'll be up to reply to you kindly!
Have a cute, and a awesome day!
Hey! I'm Nanako (or tcdw if you feel comfortable with my old name). While I am a front-end web developer in real life, I really love listening and arranging VGM tracks and pop music. Now I am glad to help moderating your music submissions with other SMW Music moderators. See you soon!
Heya! I'm Segment1Zone2, Most people prefer to call me Seg though. =P
I help moderate the music section from time to time, and aside from that I mostly hang out on the SMWC Discord chatting to people.
Music is kind of my thing at the moment, although I am pretty well versed in almost all the aspects of hacking (ASM I'm kind of lacking in though).
Anyway, if you need something from me, like to ask about a port I've moderated, feel free to send me a DM on discord, I'll most likely respond.
I like writing music and hearing the music other people write. Joined the site mid-2020, looking forward to seeing your stuff.
