The idea of removing your submissions has been a thing that's been debated on numerous times, both by the community as well as in staff. It's a controversial subject - on one hand, users should hold some right over their files, but on the other, not only does the license agreement prevent such things but SMW Central was also founded as an archival tool for such resources, and archival is important to us as well - even low-quality submissions that were once officially on our site are dutifully archived. Plus, it would be a shame to remove otherwise really good resources entirely, and deprive the userbase of what could be a solid resource, wouldn't it?
To that end, there's a solid middle ground to all of this, and we hope it satisfies anyone who doesn't want to be tied to old submissions anymore: anonymization of submissions.
Many people want to dissociate themselves from their submissions, and that's fine and valid! But, since archival of resources is important as mentioned before, this serves as a clean and simple solution. To anonymize one of your resources, send a message to the appropriate Team Leader
in this list, or an appropriate section moderator, and let them know! The effort will be done manually, but identifying information (such as tags in an SPC, included readmes or comments) will be removed, and the Author field will be changed to simply "Anonymous". Do know, however, that once this is done, it is permanent - you won't be able to get authorship back. Keep this in mind before sending a request.
Currently, this new policy is available for hacks - however, you must send an anonymized copy of the hack in question. This is so you can remove any and all possible identifiers that the hack mods may otherwise not know about or be equipped to deal with, such as ASM. The same applies for any submission that requires a .bps patch, such as graphics hacks or overworld graphics. Additionally, this feature is not available for very specific cases that render identification in a submission very difficult to remove, such as (but not limited to) SMWCP or VLDC compilations. Sorry!
All this said, if you'd like to anonymize something of yours, feel free to send your requests!
