AKA I need somewhere to announce that the forum is back and I'm too lazy to hit the announcements!
Welcome back everyone to Mario Making Mods! Hopefully, this is the last user-caused downtime that will happen!
Anyways, like the title said, this will be a mini "What's up?" blog post. Why is that? Because unfortunately, we don't have many Super Mario Hacks to show off! In fact, all of the mods put in today's blog is made by one man, which goes by Buntendo A proper blog post should come later on, but for now, this will suffice.
-"Super Mario Maker: Yoshi Gone missing" will, unfortunately, be delayed for a while.
-If you quote this post and look at the sentence "New themes include", you'll see that they a) don't have tags & b) have an added s to the end. While this may get confusing after a while, we have made a version of the thread BBCode which removes the tags.
-We now have a Patreon Page! The link for it should be in the Navigation bar in a short while! There are many advantages of becoming an MMM Patron, including:
~Access to early patron-only content on the page, the forum and the discord server! (well, I can't force everyone to go through that, as I'll only do it for the content that either I release, or people volunteer. Keep in mind that the time difference between the mods release date & the public release is 14 days. Never will I put a mod out for being "Patreon-only")
~Sneak peek photos of upcoming releases
~Have a special Rank on the forum.
-We have now affiliated with 2 amazing websites which are called "Horizon" and "SMMDB". You can find a link to Horizon in the "NSMBW forum" and a link to SMMDB at the top bar!
~Due to inactivity, I have demoted "MayroSMM" from main admin and replaced him with "Huseyin".
~I am in the middle of making a Halloween theme for the forum...
~We have officially gotten rid of IRC, in favor of discord, as the IRC relay thing is dumb and no one really liked it...
-We now have moved to a newer host, due to some issues with the old one. I will not go into details here, but if you really want to know, just talk to me about it in private. Anyways, this host is one that I'll be paying, and while it is twice the price of the old one, the quality is great. and even though they provide a VPS for the same price as the old one, its way better! The old host used OVH while the new one uses VPSCheap! While this server has the same amount of RAM, it has 4 cores (the old one had one slow and shitty core) & a 50GB SSD. A huge shoutout to Repflez who helped me out with moving this site and Horizon.
Why do we need a patron?
Basically, for this host, I'm paying for it myself, and unfortunately, I can not do this alone, so I need a bit of support. Also, if you are wondering where the money is going, it's going into a PayPal account where the host will take the money from. And just in case you were wondering what the card is, it's an unreloadable prepaid master card that originally had 50$ inside of it, I put it on a PayPal account (which means it can merge credit card money together), had 7$ taken off of for initial purchase and has 40$ taken off as well for "prepaid service" (basically, you pay for the VPS in advance, which should pay off 5 months)). This is only for the hosting because the domain is paid off by Aileen Lumina!
I hope you guys enjoy the mini What's up article! Honestly, its a bit rushed because I wanted to get the news out as soon as possible!
