Activity has been decreased even more now due to the removal of the emotional threads. No, i'm not complaining.
Yep, this has been a mistake in my opinion because we need to express our feelings here too. We are not robots, we are humans.
If you wish to understand the Universe think of energy, frequency and vibration.

If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have a key to the Universe.

What we now want is closer contact and better understanding between individuals and communities all over the Earth, and the elimination of egoism and pride which is always prone to plunge the world into primeval barbarism and strife. Peace can only come as a natural consequence of universal enlightenment.

All good things die sometime, no forum is eternal.
Please do not use any assets made for my Project! I will bring you to court if you do!

Kyasarin and Luminous were right all along!

This is sure disappointing, I thought activity would increase a lot with beta 4's arrival. Well at least I came back

I agree with this post, but why would activity decrease beacause of emotional threads being removed?

Just because a forum isn't as active as you once remembered, it doesn't mean the community has died. Though, I feel the whole wave of return to activity during the 1st-2nd quarter was mostly because of two things: 1.AVLC 2.The global lockdowns due to the pandemic keeping most of us indoors for months. Even if there hasn't been much activity recently, there's always the discord server. :3

Frankly the pandemic didn't boost community activity as much as, say, the chess scene across the world

Still using the legacy editor? Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why. And remember, Yoshis are tools to be used and discarded.

As a relatively new member I think it's simply the fact that SMBX doesn't have that big of a community. Most people congregate around YouTube videos, and when it comes to the overall Mario fanbase and the world as a whole most people prefer Mario Maker over SMBX simply because that is the official tool for level creation.
Don't be afraid to make the switch to SMBX2, and don't feel pressured if you wish to not do it. Take my word for it, for I am just another casual user.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: low forum activity is not a sign of the community dying as much as it is a sign of forums losing their place as the community's dominant communication platform. The subforum/thread structure and asynchronous mode of discussion that forums offer do still have their advantages over more real-time environments like Discord servers -- publishing levels and episodes, making big announcements, hosting events, etc -- and there's always going to be people that just plain prefer the former over the latter. But for the majority of people, the latter ends up being better for a lot of the smaller activity like casual conversation, troubleshooting, and getting feedback on WIP creations.
Some people just cannot avoid the ads on MediaFire, even with both common sense and popup blockers. It's always a good idea to provide an alternate download link with an ad-free file host such as Dropbox or Google Drive.

Also play Bug Fables, the devs have confirmed that they got their royalties from Dangen and the game is really freaking good.

SMBX has quite a large community compared to most SMB fangames, just simply that most reside on Youtube/Discord or have moved on.
I dunno, something inspirational is supposed to go here so here I go:

Realize the difference between criticism and hate.
Criticism is direct feedback about the level that helps and tells you what you could do better and/or what you could expand upon.
Hate is direct insults towards you/your level that tell you nothing other than how bad you are.

AKA: Don't cry at every responce you get, just ignore hate and respond to criticism.

anyone who says smbx activity hasn't decreased is in some deep denial.

It's obvious, contests nowadays can get barely over 30 entries when before they'd get 80+. Which is just the simplest and most obvious way to look at this but there are more examples which I don't feel like listing

btw my own activity is decreasing too, I haven't touched the game in a good while and barely spent attention to discord, and there are just things that are more fun for me and I'm also focusing on shifts in real life ...
