Tip: Switch palace switches normally disappear if you replay the level. However, if you insert them as direct Map16 and use the hex edit at $00EEB2 in the ROM map, you can replay the level without a problem.

I know things were a little more lax in the past, but the staff has been a lot less lenient regarding what's too lewd or explicit for an avatar or a layout image.
This applies to absolutely everyone, it isn't selective of users. We've had various people change their profiles due to this in the past few months, staff members included.

Now, here's our reasoning:

1. SMW Central is clearly a child-friendly site, and we don't want children being exposed to questionable material and/or having it appear in their history for their parents to see. You may argue that children are already overexposed to that kind of stuff anyway, but that's a problem we don't want to be a part of.
2. On top of that, some people feel uneased by certain/all types of lewd material. I've heard an argument that it's no different than say, being uneased by ponies or anime, but it really is.
3. You have no solid reasons to expose the kind of pornography you enjoy looking at in a ROM hacking website.

We're not doing this for "opression", but for a greater good. I just want everyone to understand.
Yoshiatom's Post


In all seriousness, I'm all in favour of this. And if anyone disagrees I'd like to point out I made a thread about how I didn't "get" anime, and many of the points I made were that I found it (and by extension, people who watch it) to seem perverted from the outside. So if you're against this all you're doing is giving me more reasoning to have a stigma against it.

(I know this is isn't limited to anime imagery, but I just wanted to get this down before the inevitable "THIS IS DUMB STAFF SUX" posts)

rip leod's avatars
i wrote this thread a few months ago but was worried I'd get laughed out because I dont actually have any sort of authority on the site as well as not personally caring (only really looking out for the site's "reputation" of sorts) so thanks for finally saying something.

Although tbf my thread was more genuine curiosity trying to figure out why people actually used lewd avatars in the first place. I never really understood the idea behind it.

--------------------
While I've noticed a lot of this myself, I'll admit that this is an issue I've never really felt too strong toward either way. Regardless, you bring up some valid points, and I can understand where your concern is coming from with this.
I agree with this completely - though I do wonder what's going to become of the infamous cat thread (which is still cased :u).

EDIT: changed my avatar to comply.

It was a bit too on the nose.
if any of my avs are too lewd despite the cropping, lemme know <3

i wont mind changing them, ill just need to find a decent pic of the same chara lol

At least the only avatar that may be a bit suggestive is my Momo avatar, but even then its probably not lewd at all (I mostly got this anyway because it was pretty hard finding a good picture of her that wasnt lewd at the same time, since you know, ecchi and all), so I'm probably safe. Still, if its actually very lewd, let me know please. #wario{;)}

Oh! I don't think that my Easter layout is obvs lewd, though. Gotta change my layout. Fast.

My avatar better not be nuked for showing a fucking elbow.

As long as no one is hypersensitive about this (i.e. Nuking someone's avatar for having a character with noticeable breasts but aren't presented in a sexual context) then I don't mind this at all.

Can't speak for others, but in the case of some of my old avatars, the answer is pretty straightforward: I'm 16 and I like cute girls.
I'm fairly sure it'd be the shirt rather than the elbow that'd be the problem in this case.

To be fair you seem to have gotten rid of the worst offenders, your avatar is OK tbh.
I really don't get those people that have obsessions with pictures half-naked women.

But, those people probably don't get why anyone would make their avatar a Windows Media Player visualization, so...

*everything stops*
Yeah, that's me. You're probably wondering how I got into this situation...

Think of the children!


Really though I'm not keen on having to guess what something that's cropped to look like a breast really is.
Seeing how we're going to start being kid friendly, shouldn't we do something about cursing as well while we're on this topic? After all, it's not the visual content, if anything, the actual content on the site, the posts, require a form a work too.

(Also RIP alraune layout)
America is the only country that gives a fuck about cursing.
Honestly I doubt any kids with internet access have not been exposed to cursing already. Lewd material is a different subject, and parents watching what their kids do are most likely not going to read an entire site scanning for swaering. Explicit images, on the other hand, are more visible to anyone.
*cough* am i getting nuked *cough*

2 out of my 6 avatar shuffle exposes a little of bare skin. It's not explicit, but some could argue it is kind of lewd (duh). It wouldn't hit me, personally, as something lewd, but I could see kids taking it that way.
I'd argue your avatars are borderline?

I'm more concerned by the straight jacket one of those pictures is wearing... but it's not lewd unless you know what it means. :U

The only safe avatars now are skeletons in non-lewd and/or questionable positions.

i mean thats fine and all, but my question was why did you feel the need to display that love with an avatar? This isn't me trying to pick on you, either. I'm just curious in general.
