why tf is there so many anime pfps

gonna be honest here, even now I still don't know what the purpose of this thread even is/was lol; like, I'm just saying, but considering the fact that this is a website where people are literally here specifically to make edits, either big or small, to a old ass game made for a 90s game system that's pretty much something no one but nerds would like to bother with in the first place, you would expect there to be people that would also have other, similar nerdy interests, like y'know, anime or something lmao

like, I'm not saying this thread shouldn't be made cuz of that or something, just think it's completely pointless in the grand scheme of things since everyone here are nerds in some kind of way, and nerds just do be like that sometimes
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ now shut up and look at my Korone pics >:[ (or not, idrc)

im not a nerd, im a cool kid! #w{>=(}

(Seriously though, I have no idea why anyone would care about that either, I mean, I remember when this site was filled with My Little Pony imagery, and I never really was bothered by that)

it's better than the cropped MLP porn we used to have
Anyone with an anime pfp should be literally drawn and quartered. That's really all there is to say about that.

Ahhh, the good ol' days. Always get the urge to do that again sometimes, if only for the nostalgia.

also ngl, every time I hear about how SMWC was like back then I wished I registered sooner honestly; seems like some WILD shit was happening, and definitely more fun than how it is now

(though considering the fact I was like, 10 or 11 when I first found out about the site, I kind of think I might've been better off not joining since I was a complete shithead back then; and yes, I was much worse than how I was back in 2017 lmao)

This is true - back in the day, it seemed as though the site couldn't go longer than a week without something hilarious or insanely random (in a very engaging way) happening. In more modern times, however, it feels like that sense has been lost. I guess that's just a consequence of more strict moderation, and the fact that it seems like no action is ever taken by the staff without first going through some sort of in-depth review process.

I'm still waiting for the day when another secret forum pops up for absolutely no good reason whatsoever, like Valley Fortress or the Seclusion/Solitude forums. That's the kind of chaotic energy that I yearn for!
Twitter
The handomest people in the world are ones who follow my Twitch
Back then moderators were all 15 and kinda did whatever they wanted and the site's image wasn't a concern at all, the haters be hatin' and stuff
In a way it probably felt like more fun, but only to the people who didn't happen to fall onto the staff's wrath lol
I'd say fun events still happen (like... egg hunts?), but we're indeed kind of stagnated from doing anything new. I believe the PR team is working on that though.
My 9k was made in this very thread wtf

I'm with the others, fun events aren't nearly as frequent as they were in the 2010s. I was mad crazy with posting back then. Do y'all remember the Marceline thing? And the System x Chester war? Yeah.
Also, some old folks including myself were minors with a lot of free time on their hands (including moderators), and consequently, the site's activity sped up a ton. I miss that era.
This is pretty fascinating to me (I love how the subject derailed completely, but hey, it's a way more interesting topic anyway). Even if I was here back then, I wouldn't be able to understand most jokes like I do nowadays. Current me would struggle to enjoy a chaotic forum (well, probably), since I'm just too concerned with keeping a good-ish image, not unlikely because of my embarrassing behavior back in the early 2010s on the Internet. lol thank fuck most of my 2012 - 2013 era stuff isn't really visible to anyone, otherwise i would jump on a whirlpool

I mean, I still can enjoy shitposts and whatnot, but I don't think it would be my type of thing if the whole place felt like a shitpost. There's a nostalgia towards old internet stuff, but I do feel like a few things actually feel better now.
Хуй войне!

I think somebody realized at some point that the site wasn't just for 15-year-olds and that the incomprehensible nature of decisions and the teenage drama wasn't beneficial for anyone, but especially not for the younger users on the site.

For an oldschool hacking website, smwcentral is in a pretty unique position. There are quite a number of kids here, but we have to have the same ruleset for everyone and there aren't even any adult-restricted forums anymore. This means that the rules really have to be tailored to take those younger users into account.

Was there more fun allowed? I would say so. In some ways the site was more strict than now, especially with hack moderation. A sense of community is very important of course, but I think it's good to lay your focus more on romhacking.

Aren't the rules already tailored enough to also accommodate younger users, though?

It was an observation not a criticism.
it's maybe beceause people like animes #wario{O_o}
It's fun to identify with animated characters. It's a form of roleplay, and forums, not least this one, allow for it.

I don't currently have an anime pfp, but I imagine sometime in the future I might. Because again it's fun!

My answer is quite simple: because I think they are cute.
