This thread is here to serve the purpose of letting you know of any known bugs or common questions that get asked in this forum. Here are our common questions with answers to them.
How do I add a post layout (background) to my post?
Post layouts are custom HTML and CSS code which you can write on your own or generate with a tool. If you want a post layout, please check out the post layout thread
. Please don't ask in this forum.
How can I change my username?
If you want your username changed, all you have to do is PM Eevee
, or Telinc1
with your new name. You can get a new name change after three months from when it was last changed. If you haven't had it changed yet, you can do it right now. Note, however, if the administrators feel that you're requesting name changes too often, it's entirely of their choice to deny any further requests. You can also ask for your name change request to be undone until one week after it was granted, but the three months cooldown for a new request is still applied.
Can I submit anonymous feedback to the staff team?
Yes, right here
. Send anything ranging from compliments to complaints to frustrations about how a certain issue is handled there and it will be handled appropriately by our administrators. Submitted feedback will be publicly addressed in this thread
if it follows the conditions listed in it. Everything sent through the Staff Feedback form is completely anonymous unless you share your username.
Can we have a section for hacks for x game?
We generally only add new site sections for hacking new games if there is a decent community for it. If there's no one out there who hacks New Super Mario Bros., for example, there's no point making a site section for it.
Where can I view the entire list of tips shown in the ropebox?
Can we add a search bar?
No. SMW Central used to have one until its Google Ads stopped. If you want to search SMW Central, go to Google and put site:smwcentral.net
somewhere in your search term.
Why is the newest user who has registered inactive?
If a user decides to not check the "login after register" box when they register, they haven't got a date where they were last seen. The site thinks that they haven't been seen at all so they're inactive as far as the site is concerned.
Can I upload multiple files at the same time in my filebin?
Not yet, but it's a planned future feature.
What board software does SMW Central use?
SMW Central does not use any pre-existing board software. It's made from scratch using PHP.
Why are all the usernames colored like a rainbow?
This usually happens when it's some sort of celebration-type event. This thread
explains rainbow names and other special occasions.
