(This post is somewhat messy, because a lot of this stuff i've been meaning to say for a pretty long time. Due to the metric crapload of text i've spewed onto here, i decided to post this as its own thread.)

TL;DR please help me i have no idea how to do anything

I've missed the good stuff of the internet. Now everything is discord. Wanna join a community? Discord. I don't like it tbh. Discord is fine, but this just seems more fun, dude.

I've had an account on this place for a pretty long time, but before now i've never posted anything at all. I think i made the account so i could join the discord server, which i left because discord servers make me super super anxious and stuff, especially ones with lotsa members.

Other than that i've tried the super mario forums, and i don't remember why i stopped using those. I figured i'll try here for a better shot.

Basically i wanna get le feel of tight−knit community. Is that something i can find in here? Like would i get to make friends by using a forum nowadays? Or is it just like, a mess of too much noise?

Am i even qualified to use this forum? I've never really gotten into forums before, and i've only beaten SMW once, and i haven't played any romhacks at all. So i guess no. What's some of the like, classic must-play SMW hacks i could play?

I actually don't even know if this whole post is acceptable forum behavior. is it? Like, i know this post isn't breaking any of the rules, but maybe i'm just being weird without realising. Maybe i posted this in the wrong section, or even in the wrong site. Inform me if i did and sorry if i did.

Here's hoping i get some replies that will put me on my path to un-noob myself, and maybe start using this forum and/or forums in general. Thank you if you reply! #w{=3} prolly not even gonna read this cause it's too long which i understand lmao

P.S. I remembered about this forum because of this stream so i went and played this romhack and i'm trynna beat it today so i guess i've played one hack now lmao

Lockdown has been intermittent where i live, and i really thought it was just over for some time. But literally today we started doing online classes again. The really big thing that the pandemic might do to me is spending an even bigger part of the day just sitting at my desk on my computer. Which might damage my spine, eyes, and probably even hands from typing stuff all day. Let's hope not #ab{:P}

Even before the whole pandemic thing happened, i didn't really have many in-person friends. And the ones i did have, i didn't really hang out with all that much. So when it hit, i didn't really lose any contact with anyone.

On the contrary, i kinda fully switched my mind into internet mode, and i ended up meeting some of the best people in my life just from faffing about on the internet, and have definitely gained an appreciation for life in general more than before. I kinda figured out some personal stuff too cause i had some time to do some thinkin'. Staying inside so much has also allowed me to develop my interests some. So in a way i'm kinda grateful that this all happened.

Though my mental health has been questionable(?)though nothing diagnosed before or during the lockdown, that's probably incidental and likely has more to do with adolescence than anything else, and i've been better recently so i've really just had it well with the pandemic personally.

From what i've been reading though, it's been hell for most everyone else. #ab{;_;} Good luck to you reading this if it's been bad for you!

Oh hey, two replies. Thanks both of you. I'm prolly gonna write all those titles down now so i'll get to playing those hacks. Might even start workin on my own hack eventually, but probably not.

Imma also take both your advice into consideration when i'm using this website. Is it a good idea if i just look around in the forums and respond to whatever catches my interest?

The fact that forum posting is at your own pace enables you to be clearer with greater confidence the first time and I think is a better way to organize details.


And to be honest what really made me anxious about discord servers is when i wasn't talking in them. #ab{:P} It was like oh no i'm not doing anything in the server even when i was literally away from my computer.

And also i kinda just like being verbose so this helps with that lol.

This question is more for later on if i'm still using the forum, but how do i do those things? I know that sounds like an obvious question with an obvious answer, but like really here. Aside from "say stuff in the forum".

Will do that! Before i use the forums much more though i'm probably gonna clear out the newly padded out backlog that arised from all the recommendations from the last two replies.

I don't remember what order they were in, but:

New Super Mario Bros on the DS. That game was some good stuff, man. I remember freaking out (in the good way) when somebody told me i could just play as Luigi by holding L+R before selecting the save file. I also remember the same person telling me that Mario wouldn't be wearing a hat if i got 99 lives. I tried it and it didn't happen, so i think he was thinking of the wrong game.

Also Super Mario Flash. That game was really good, but i kinda sucked at it. I also tried to get into the level-creating aspect of it, but i kinda lost my 10-year-old patience before i got anything playable.

And Wii Sports. although i can't seem to remember what system i played that on... if only it was specified in the game's title... I remember accidentally getting the blue court easter egg on tennis and just having no idea how to replicate it.

If you don't remember what it's called, i think you're thinking of Interactive Buddy. #ab{:)}

When i saw this post my eyes lit up. I talk about frickin Wii Music any time someone mentions this topic. Back before i was a world-wide-web-surfing cool kid, i played this game to death, and i didn't even know that people hated it.

Then y'know i went to youtube and stuff and the past couple years saw a lotta reviews about Wii Music and they were all like "wow this is crap". And i was genuinely surprised.

My copy of the game broke a few years ago, and in 2019 or so i got a new copy and i was really glad i did. And i played that for some time. But now my Wii U has one leg in the grave so i can't play it anyway. #ab{:P} And even if it did, my family members do not like the cacophony.

As for my desktop, it's this. Just a plain ol' Xfce desktop with not a single icon to distract me.

Wow thanks! That's a compliment, right?

Welcome! Don't stress too much about seeming weird or awkward, SMWC is super friendly nowadays, so don't worry about being chased off the site because you used a three-syllable word or anything like that. Once you take some time to get used to the people here, I'm sure you'll fit right in. It's also a very active site, so I think it would be pretty hard to get bored here.

I've been doing this thing where i kinda just PM anybody who looks like a fun person. Is that weird? Haven't gotten very many re-replies, they might respond once but not after. I really need someone to tell honestly whether or not i'm being weird.

I agree with you about message boards, too - I like Discord a lot, but there's something rather cozy about having an independent corner of the internet, broken off of all those mainstream social media platforms, where you and your friends can just have your own little place to relax and converse. I hope you stick around.

And y'know, it is nice to be using something that is mildly less likely to be out for my personal data.

It's actually kinda really nice to receive replies on something i posted several days ago.

Wow, that's a lotta different hacks. I'm probably not gonna be playing those any time soon, since i already have a pretty big backlog of hacks from this thread. Maybe super later or something. Sorryy! A lot of those titles are pretty funny tho :p

When i first got into Mario games and i played NSMB i thought that Bowser Jr. was Mario's real enemy and that Bowser was just some helper of his. Keep in mind i didn't even know their names. And i thought the real issue at hand was the weird stuff going on near the castle during the cutscene.
