We're down to our last thousand or so users, the Works in Progress and SMW hacks sections doesn't get much activity anymore, countless users have left, their hacks abandoned with time...
SMW Central, and probably SMW hacking in general is clearly standing on it's last thinning strands of relevancy, at least from what I've noticed. How much longer do you think we'll last?

--------------------
Hacks I'm working on:

your simplistic human mind cannot possibly comprehend the complexities of my thoughts
As long as there´s at least 1 single person, that continues SMW-Hacking, hacking itself won´t die out. It just will get no attention anymore.

Regarding the site, it predominantly depends on Kieran Menor. Since he is the owner, his will is going to be the ultimate verdict that shuts this site down, but as long as he decides to keep it up I don´t see a reason for being pessimistic that SMWC´s time is going to be over soon. And I think about 1000 active people are still enough for Kieran to keep this site running.

--------------------
I think that even though SMW hacking might become less relevant, the community itself is close enough to each other to remain existing for quite a while.

--------------------
Hack progress: 6/8 exits
Play the demo right here!
I'm optimistic about the SMW hacking community. I guess some more people are gonna either return or join the community after some people abandoning it. Suddenly, most of the community will leave this site and Kieran Menor will be forced to close SMW Central.
I have a Discord server as well!

Back to working on my VLDC12 level!
Eyy, moving this to General Discussion

imo this community will last for several more years or for as long as Kieran can maintain it. There's still several hackers from all over the world to showoff their works at SMW Central almost daily since it's a popular reference, and it's true that others stay because of the community, no longer feeling like even hacking anymore. Back then (in 2010 and beyond) the site had more active users than it has today, so the ratio of active users depends on how long they can stay here.

this community will die as soon as SMM is released
the community died when SNN left

the site probably has a few years left in it
I don't know, I think SMWC is doing pretty well right now for long we've been around. We're not exactly what you would call "relevant" anymore in terms of what's popular on the internet nowadays, but it's not as if the site goes days without a single post. I'm sure SMWC will be here for years to come, even if that means Kieran has to give the site over to somebody else eventually.
For as long as there's people to say "this site will last". Your interest is what keeps it all going.

I give it a week, tops.

My layout has removed you.
The community will last as an SMW hacking Community until Bubsy Central is up and running and we then evolve into a Bubsy hacking community.

What could possibly go wrong?

Were we ever higher than 1000...? I also kind of don't really think that our forums get much less activity than they used to, and if anything the Discord is far far more active than any of our IRCs ever were, so the party's booming there as well.
Our contests get an almost impossible to handle amount of entries nowadays, when they didn't ever really before and we get regular shoutouts on GDQs at this point thanks to our lovely SMW speedrun reps (and the fact that people actually play Mario hacks at those events!!).

You're hallucinating!

we're still alive?


what
Agreeing with leod on this one. The number of active users is vastly irrelevant. There are period where it rises, others where it decreases, but it's roughly the same. Besides, while some members leave, newcomers arrive, and the torch is passed on to them, to get metaphorical. This community is unlikely to die before a very long time in my humble opinion.

Besides, as some others said, Kieran can very well leave the site to someone that's more dedicated if he eventually gets tired of it.
tomorrow
The community as it is now? That will implode on itself at some point I feel. The site won't though, because people still need the resources it has. If this site is going to survive it will depend on the latter.

New members join in all the time.
Some stay, some don't.
Judging from what I have seen from this community, it shall live on.
It's certainly not as quiet as the Bloodstained Community or the Castlevania Dungeon. And those are still active and consistent.

This place here is crowded.
I am sure it's sure going to stay too.

If even I, a bloody lurker, remain here for unknown reasons (I don't even do anything), for quite some years.

That says a lot about how pleasant this community is.

--------------------
Dawn upon me, morning sun... I anxiously tarry for thee, come to vanquish this horrible era of my life.

Things I am excited for:
Apparently there is nothing announced anywhere that really interests me.

Things I probably should do:
Update my profile to coincide with the new changes.
The site has 1,287 active users we are still good.!!!
as long as people still care about making their own smw levels we're good lmao
