No everyone died.

I'm kidding, most of the community moved to the Discord server. As for the future, I still have a mappack in development, and I might host a contest soon. It's gonna be for SE, though. For the really far off future, there's Mari0 2 to look forward to.

Well, we're not dead.

Though most of the activity these days happens on the unofficial discord: https://discord.gg/znze7SQ (Which I'm sure you'll find interesting)

Yes. Mari0 and the other games were written by Maurice and the forums are maintained by Sašo, while the Discord server is maintained by WillWare, but for all intents and purposes, I'm the main dev and owner of it all B)

Super Mario Maker is a ripoff of Mari0 and it doesn't even have portals.


(The game was released 6 years ago and by now people who were teenagers when they found the game now already have 4 mortgages on their houses)

Woah Sazo thanks for reminding me that I'm old and that life is short. I forgot I was just 16 years old when I joined the community, filled with hormones, acne, and high confidence on my low English skills.

Although I never experienced it myself, those simpler internet days...

Without any sort of embarrassment relating to this, not long ago I had made myself a statement in the server whom Maurice and Sazo thought I had overthought with, but it's likely that I can't word it any more effectively and convincing. Unedited:

"It's still a good thing that there's some activity on mappack making, although compared to the years before, it's more the likelihood that younger and newer users are making them instead of older and more well-known pioneers.
Other than that on the forums, cutthroat gesture. Threads about asset respositoriums are no longer active. Very little people would download new mods unless they're new to the forums, which are the spiders that lurk around (I'm not trying to nor cordone the provoke of these new users).
It was a good fad, it just didn't last longer than five years since its release.
But I don't blame, internet generations are usually rather short in relation on to your real-life status, which is saying how much free time you have, and whether or not your motivation and interest maintains at the level.
Sometimes they bump into the activity briefly say, ten years later, but that's only for nostalgia. That goes for ROM Hacking which I observed and heard in the scene.."


Reflecting, I have been here for nearly three years, then joined the server during the next year.... That's when the terrible memories started to grow, I wish I don't need to look back on them, but they just keep coming back at some point.

I'd just like to point out that back in the day, games were released and that was it. Fan following keeping the modding scene alive for a length of time dependend also on the number of people involved. Generally the only games that received official patches much after release were multiplayer games, and usually because they were required.

Nowadays people expect every game to be a franchise supported for 10 years over multiple games, and every movie a cinematic universe with at least 3 movies. I'm not the biggest fan of that.

That's a point Maurice has brought up before, but I don't think it really applies to this case. Mari0 is the only Stabyourself.net game to receive updates after-the-fact (not counting this), and the 1.6 version was shortly followed by the promise of new features. "Released once and that's it" was never the case for this game.

Not that I'm clamoring for more updates, but still.

If a guy I won't name hadn't offered to do online multiplayer, SE might've actually properly been released at some point when a feature set was still clear. Even that doesn't mean continuous endless updates.

Mari0 updates didn't bring some massive new features in, they were mostly bugfixes and quality of life changes.

I'll just point Maurice to this and he'll write "stinky hat" or something
