New Difficulty Changes Log

This thread will be used to log changes to the categories hacks are in, usually for hacks that are already in the Hacks section, either to accommodate changes to the hacks database or to move an entry to a more appropriate category.

For each hack that has its category altered, a hacks moderator will post a reply in this thread with similar to the following (fake) example, to provide context for a change.

HackTithered Mario
Date of Change2024-07-10
Category BeforeKaizo: Intermediate
Category AfterStandard: Very Hard, Kaizo: Expert
Reason for ChangeThe hack has many standard elements, lending itself to a rather hybrid style. Originally submitted as a standard hack and then a kaizo one, it can now be aptly labelled as both, and at the correct degree of difficulty.

HackShooey
Date of Change2024-07-11
Category BeforeKaizo: Intermediate
Category AfterKaizo: Expert
Reason for ChangeI was feeling that this hack was very high intermediate up until the final couple of levels. Those were tough enough
to make me think this was a low expert hack, and therefore warranted a move into expert.
