I'm going to shoot my shot at this even if I'm going to get many disapprovals at this. Is there anyone who is oppose to the idea of a new category called No Secret Levels?

Warpless in every NSMB game has always been defined as beating the game without using a warp to skip worlds, thus going through the game using the game's natural route. This means no cannons across all NSMB games up until this game. This makes Warpless the middle category across the series. However, this game has no defined "warp". However, when I messed around with arbitrary meme categories of this game years ago and did my own run that would be considered "Warpless", I didn't allow any secret levels, Worlds 1-5-Secrets because those levels will lead you to different worlds and skip large portions of the game. I allowed 6-6 and 8-4 (secret exits of 6-Tower and 8-1) because by the game, they are not considered secret levels. The only significant difference in this category is that the game's intended route allows you to skip 1 world, which is either World 3 or 4.

Our current middle category for this game is All Castles, which is beating every castle, including BOTH Worlds 3 and 4. It doesn't ban secret levels as we care about getting to every world, which means in our current route, we do a secret level to skip a level that is otherwise part of the game's intended route. So would that be considered "Warpless" at that point?

I've always like the idea of Warpless across all the games and I've especially like the idea of an "all worlds" category to showcase a package of what the game has to offer. And I know what I'm proposing is a meme because it wouldn't differ much from our current middle category but if people do approve of this, then I want to suggest this under "misc." unless it gets competitive later in the future.
