Just now when i noticed a update for My Super Mario Maker game, i downloaded and installed it. Only to be greeted with a "Important notice" I'm Sure everyone has seen it and wonder why i decided to post it here, well let me read the quote first. "Please Note that we may delete uploaded courses, reset total number of stars a user has earned, and/or restrict their access to Course World in the following cases: The user intrusively requested stars from other users, either in game or on Miiverse. The Course Included content that Super Mario Maker team judged to be a bug in the game. The user took advantage of bugs that were unintended by either the course creator or the developers to obtain new World Records. Any other behavior in violation of the code of conduct. We hope you understand that these rules are in place to make sure everyone is able to fully enjoy Super Mario Maker." The first thing to address is begging for stars on comments left in game, or on miiverse, is now likely to get your star count reset and banned from online services. You must earn your stars fairly, if you want stars, create a course worthy of them not ask for them. Make courses people will like, it doesn't mean any course too easy (ESPECIALLY AUTOMATED) Or too hard (And i mean no where near nintendo standards, like random leap of faith blindly into pits, booby traps, trolling invisible blocks, annoying time paitent sections, and enemy spam as well as "HOW WAS I SUPPOSED TO FIGURE THAT OUT" stuff and other not fun elements) But can put up unique challenge and satisfaction. Don't be a jerk basically. Second, no more glitches in courses. Just make a normal course intended as you would with basic knowledge of the course editor. No more going through objects, and other stuff. There been a few stages i had reported, Yes i said i reported, that couldn't be completed cause, when i played it i found no way to complete it. According to some people, the updates required to use online services such as downloading levels and playing 100 mario challenge is mandatory, and will fix (Patch) the bugs or glitches and since the level is still on server and were completeable in previous version due to exploit in bugs or glitches, will most likely not be playable. Please report any levels you find unplayable, and do not make any more of them. Third it mentions players taking advantage of exploits bugs or glitches used to obtain world records in some courses that wasn't intended by either the course creator or developer (course creator being players like you and me and developers being Super Mario Maker team judges) It is asking you to complete levels fairly, no cheese, or bugs or glitches. While i personally never had this problem, i had one that is annoying and that is what i like to call the "DEV ROUTE" Basically its when someone creates a full course and then hides a door near the start of a course that leads to the end for a instant win. My guess why people do that is cause of the requirement to clear the course before having to upload it. Also if you add any checkpoints to the course, Additional clear flags are required. (From the start, and after each check point, Up to two checkpoints may be used in once course, one in main room and one in subroom) Simply having a door leading to the end is lazy, if you want someone to complete the course as intended fairly, don't make shortcuts and don't use any glitches or bugs, your records or restrictions may be followed if any supisicous activity deem unfair by moderators. Fourth and last is any behavior in violation of the code of conduct, which i hope everyone is familiar with. If you need to be reminded please check the game manual or online information if necessary. What this means basically is no more begging for stars, you must create courses and earn them by fairness and player appeal, do not make courses that aren't intended to be of the Course creator standards, which to be honest mostly i figure glitches and bugs, but any Tool assisted skills should also be excluded for safety, don't use shortcuts or cheat using any bugs or glitches for world records and respect Terms of service. (Otherwise known as code of conduct) Please leave any comments regarding your opinions respectfully.
