Tip: When you're about to release your hack, make a patch first, patch it to a clean ROM, and then test that. This way, you are testing both the hack AND the patch.Not logged in.

This has been open long enough.

While we appreciate everything Nameless has done while on the administration team, we ultimately cannot condone the exchange of staff information regarding the userbase for money. That being said - she's done exemplary work in the other facets of the site, and I especially second the first 5 points Giftshaven noted in their post here. As such, she will remain on the team as SMW Music Manager, but she will no longer be involved in user moderation.

For further inquiries, you can PM me or use the staff feedback function. Past that, this thread has served its' purpose, and will be closed. Thank you all for your input, and I apologize about the worries regarding staff information leaks this may have instilled. We will continue to work on making sure this site is the best it can be.

--------------------
As per A confession and apology, Nameless has been demoted from Administrator back to SMW Music Manager. Past that, she will no longer be involved in the userbase part of the SMW Central staff team, including user discussions.

Further information can be found here.

I wanted to express my disappointment with the actions the staff has chosen to take in this matter.

I understand there isn't a course of action that is going to satisfy everyone, but to strip an excellent admin from her position for something that had no negative impact at all whatsoever to anyone else on the site is ridiculous. It would be one thing if she leaked IP addresses or private messages between users, but what she leaked only involved one user (who just requested their own User Discussion thread), and nobody else.

Now, I'm not saying Staff should be allowed to sell non-Public information for money. Even if people try to brush this off as a trivial matter because this is "a silly Mario website". If a site wants any sort of serious staff, then that obviously shouldn't be allowed and the seriousness of it should not be minimized. But to demote an exemplary admin over something that happened over a year ago, at a time when they weren't even admin yet, is an overstep.

Had none of this come to light, nothing would have even happened. Nobody was hurt by her actions. Nobody felt the effects of her mistake at all except for the two people involved. Yet she decided to air it all out to the broader userbase for transparency, and to let everyone know she did something wrong and receive criticism for it. In my opinion, this is exactly what an administrator in this position should have done. If this was a repeated, recent pattern of abuse of position, then yeah, I'd probably agree with the actions taken, but as far as we know, this was the only incident like this involving her. With that taken into account, I earnestly believe she does not deserve to be demoted as she was.

What should have been done instead then, if anything? Unfortunately, I don't know. I know it's not exactly productive to point out something you don't agree with without providing a better or alternate course of action, but all I can offer is my opinion that this definitely was not the right course of action, even if it probably was a compromise between not doing anything at all and a complete demotion and/or ban. I know this decision probably was not carried out without serious consideration and deliberation among the staff, but I feel it should absolutely be reconsidered yet again.

i want to begin addressing this by noting that had we chosen to keep nameless as administrator, we would've gotten a very similar staff feedback about not handling this properly - and, had we fully fired her from staff, we would've also gotten a very similar staff feedback.

while you do note that nobody was hurt by her actions, it did compromise the staff guidelines of which all staff are expected to abide by, and admin or not we expect those rules to be followed. and, while you do note she was an exemplary administrator, an extreme action such as exchanging private staff info (which did not just include ladida and nameless, but also the other staff who weighed in or were part of discussions) will have a disproportionate reaction. this might be a hobby site, but we cannot condone the leaking of staff information with little consequence, and we do not want to give off the impression that the higher staff you are, the more immune to the rules you are.

there are currently no plans to reconsider this demotion.

--------------------
and that's a wrap! thank you to everyone who participated in this C3, and results will go live soon!

--------------------
This C3 launched with a blank banner and a myriad of old friends - some helpful, some less helpful, some full of vitriol, some... banzai'd, some with a keen eye, and some forgotten.

Oh yeah, and Absent Ministrator showed up. Lovely! With your guys help and a little bit of Mario Art, our devious felon was found in that of the Slurp Bandit. While he did apologize, he will be put to death for his crimes.


With that aside, it's results time! Firstly:

-Ties of more than three people are not awarded trophies, except for first place.
-Third place is not awarded trophies if there are at least five total first and second place winners.
-The Super Mario World Central Production 2 Completion Project - More Progress! is credited to both Falconpunch and Blind Devil. While I am also a project leader, my schedule made me unable to contribute enough to what is shown off here to feel comfortable accepting a trophy.

Without further ado...

Awful Emblem - a Fire Emblem hack by FPzero, Teyla, and their fellow goons was pretty overlooked this C3. Maybe it was because of the Byleth presentation and everyone deciding they hated Fire Emblem all of a sudden. Or maybe, just maybe, it was because he got cursed by a witch who gave them bad C3 luck. But we all love you and wish your hack the best!

And Cop Mario - a team fangame by Yoshiatom, CSketch and Smedis2 (the latter two who seem to not be on SMW Central) also takes the gold for Most Overlooked. It may have gotten only 1 reply, but it has gotten more than 1 C3 trophy this year. And that's the good shit right there.

Can something be done about the birthday thread? It's getting pretty obvious that people use it to just make daily "happy birthday [user]" posts with no other content, even if the person they're wishing a happy birthday to is someone who's inactive or probably doesn't even know the user wishing them the happy birthday. One of the users who's guilty of this actually has the majority of their posts being "happy birthday" one-liners.

Personally, of all the ways to postcount+++, wishing someone a happy birthday is the least egregious way. We don't have an issue keeping up the thread, nor an issue with people using it to consistently wish others a happy birthday.
