Welcome to SMW Central's Requests forum for SMW hacking. This forum is our official resource requests system. And with thanks to ModBot
, a lot of the management and moderation of the forum is automated!
If you want to request a resource for your hack, it's very important
you read the rules and instructions below.
How to Make a Request
• Start by making a new thread
in this forum.
• Select the Open
tag, as well as one
resource type tag (ASM
). Use Ctrl + Click
to select more than one tag.
• Fill out your post inline with the requesting rules, and then make your thread!
• Once a user expresses they would like to claim your request, change the Open
tag to Claimed
• Once your request has been fulfilled and the submitted file has been approved in the resources sections, you can then change the Claimed
It is important you keep your thread tags up to date, and only list one
tag for the status, and one
resource type tag.
Global Requesting Rules
These rules apply to all requests made within the forum. In addition to these rules, the relevant resource-specific rules apply also (ASM
Failure to follow the rules in this forum will result in a warning being issued. Further non-compliance may result in your ability to make requests being revoked.
1. It is your responsibility to keep your thread tags up to date.
As per the How to Make a Request
instructions above, it is your responsibility to ensure your thread tag for the status of your request is kept correct. If your request is Claimed
by someone, mark it as such. If it's been Complete
, then change the tag again.
2. You can only have one active request per resource type concurrently.
For example, you can make a Request thread to request Graphics
, and then another for ASM
, but not two ASM
request threads - until one is either Canceled
. If you do, your latest thread will be automatically Canceled
Requests older than 30 days that are still Open
(not claimed by another user) will be automatically Canceled
, and you are free to either request it again or request something else.
2a. If you change your mind on a request, you can mark it as Canceled.
3. Ensure your request contains all the resources required to fulfill it.
Abuse of this feature will not be tolerated. Continuously canceling requests may result in disciplinary action being taken.
2b. You can only request one resource per request thread.
Circumventing the limit imposed on how many threads you can make by doing this will not be tolerated.
If you're requiring someone to create a sprite for you, or rip graphics, don't expect the fulfiller to find the resources themselves. Provide links and downloads to everything they will need.
4. Don't make your requests too specific.
The ultimate purpose of the Requests forum is to encourage the creation of more resources for the community, not for you to request a "32 different attacks custom muncher boss". Requests won't be kept private, users are allowed to support your request and suggest further ideas, and all fulfilled requests will be made public and uploaded to our resource sections.
5. Respect the users who kindly offer to fulfill your request.
Do not pester someone to complete your request once they claim it. Everyone is busy, and they will complete your request when they can.
Fulfilling Request Rules
You can filter for each type of request resource type by clicking on the tags, if you're looking to fulfill something specific.
1. You can claim a request by posting in its thread.
Make sure to let it be known that a request has been claimed, so multiple people don't end up working on the same request.
2. When claiming a request, be responsible.
Before claiming a request, please assure yourself that you'll be able to fulfill it in a reasonable amount of time. If you find yourself unable to finish it, unclaim it as soon as possible. Don't leave requesters waiting unnecessarily.
3. Submit the fulfilled request to the corresponding resource section, and link it in the request thread.
As such, make sure it complies with the corresponding section's submission rules.
4. Once your submission has been approved, you can claim a point for fulfilling a request.
Post a link to the approved resource, and a link to the request thread here
, and you will receive a point for each request you fulfill. Fulfill a certain amount, and you can earn trophies! If you don't post there, you won't get the points. This is your responsibility
Supporting a Request
We strongly encourage, if you like someone else's request and/or may have a use for it yourself, to show your interest in its thread. More people being interested in a request may make it more likely to be fulfilled, as it will be known that it's something that the community wants.
You are free to suggest additions, further ideas, and extra features. However, please remain true to the original request and do not completely hijack someone else's request.
We hope our Requests forum helps SMW Central's resources grow!
Should you have any questions on the rules, how the forum works, etc, you are free to ask it here in this thread.
