Thought I'd ask this for the return of experience of the userbase.
When I say misconception, it is as in a belief you held but you were wrong and found out the right answer later.

I begin:
- I thought I could only use the 2ndary entrance using the same number as the level number (ie. entrance 26 for level 26) and therefore didn't understand proper reset door placement.

On my first day on SMWC I thought "ROM Map" meant "list of hacks". #tb{''}

--------------------


 
One of the levels of Cool or Cruel used the Happy Birthday To Me port, and at the time I thought it was the creator's birthday based on the name and that nobody sent him any wishes :P
It's a learning curve, I suppose.
I used to think FuSoYa was his real name. Additionally, I misread his website as "FuSoYa Niche", thinking that was his full name.
Way back in the day, I once thought Lunar Magic was a program inside SMW because of the 3-Up Moon icon it uses. I tried countless times to collect all the moons spread through the game, thinking this would unlock Lunar Magic to edit the game 😝
I'll add some that haunt me still nowadays:

- can't use layer 3 outside of built-in bg
- cat use Effectool for gradients and parallaxes
- can't use brown block snakes
- can't find creative uses to layer 2 and scrolling sprites

and as was saying Andy in Parks and Recs... At this point I'm too afraid to ask #smrpg{gasp}
