Tip: When determining a time limit, remember that players won't be as familiar with the level as you are. If you normally complete the level with the timer around 100, others might run out of time on their first try.
As many of you have noticed, there have been a few changes to the staff team. (i.e. Kate's thread in this forum) There will be a couple more as well, but one I'd like to draw attention to is the promotion of Iceguy to local moderator, who will now moderate SMW Hack Discussion, Advanced SMW Hacking, and the blocks/sprites sections. As an experienced user and generally great guy who has contributed a lot to the site, I'm sure he'll do well.
These changes are in part because of the new hack moderators we've hired, but also to keep the staff team working well as a whole. SMWC has grown a lot over the years, so a solid staff foundation is key in the times to come.
Well (as I said on IRC), congratulations, Iceguy! I figured you were near the top of the list for possible staff member choices. I personally think you deserved it. You were always a really nice, helpful guy, and quite knowledgeable about ASM.
Good luck, Iceguy, with your new job. Make us proud, bring positive influence to Advanced SMW Hacking, and make a Mode 7 boss for me keep up the good work!
Oh ho! That was really unexpected. I thought after choosing that many hack mods there won't be many promotions in the future, but it seems, I was wrong. Although it doesn't mean, that it would be bad, or even better, I know that Iceguy will do an awesome work as a mod! Congrats dude, and good luck.
