Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS Forum  /  Important Leaderboard Changes.

The previous moderators were proven to be inactive as per speedrun.com policy and have been removed. At this time, I am currently maintaining this leaderboard as I currently assist Super Mario Maker 2 however I was not a fan of how the leaderboard was entirely being maintained to a large degree.

Before the moderator removal there were numerous runs that were in a world record position that did not include video proof or any proof whatsoever, it seemed as though the previous moderators didn't keep true to their rules provided and simply verified anything. Which, this also brings me to the attention of more than 70% of the entire leaderboard were runs that included not only no video proof for world record but an extreme lack of any proof on ANY category/game mode type that also includes a lack of picture proof (via screenshot/photograph proof) for personal best times. It is impossible to verify your time when there is zero way to do so aside of word-of-mouth which is heavily frown down upon and an old staple that has long since been removed across many game communities, it should not be any different here.

As such all runs that did not include video or image/photograph have been manually removed from all categories. Again there is no way to verify your time with nothing provided, and as far as we know anyone could of simply lied about their submitted time.

Other changes; in the full-game leaderboard the "New 3DS / 3DS" subcategories have been removed and merged to "New 3DS". The reason for this change is simply due to the leaderboard already tracking both platforms via a fliter, and while some may not like it, it is always recommended to play on the fastest hardware for any given game unless stated otherwise. Some runs were also already mixed into both subcategories thus making it more pointless, all runs have been moved and your fastest time will be listed (and all old runs under your account are merged along behind it). The "Level Leaderboard" has a new jolted in rule about providing video/images when submitting your time.

The discord invite has been manually changed to the official Super Mario Maker series discord which is meant for all games within the series.

There may be more changes coming that need to still be modified and changed.

Edit: The 100 Mario Challenge categories will likely get merged as well this way all the difficulty modes become subcategories and it is much simpler and easier to navigate through the leaderboard.

Edit 2: The 100 Mario Challenge is now the main category as it has the most runs overall and what seems to be that most people tend to run for the game thus making the leaderboard appear much larger. The difficulty modes are now subcategories for it and all runs should be properly moved towards them.

Edit 3: "World ILs" have been removed for being overly redundant along with a couple of other minor issues with it, regular ILs for all levels in the main game are still in the IL board however. We've also adjusted the rules just a tad further to make things a bit more clear and easier to read.

I also made it so "Super Mario Challenge" has any% and 100% percent subcategories, which while I know its a tad weird from the norm since this is the main game category it has only one run at this time and it doesn't appear to be something most people prefer to run.

At this moment, I believe I have done everything I can there may still be a few runs I skipped over while doing all of this but I hope the changes are welcoming.

Lol, I forgot this was here. Good news. I was remade a mod for this game again back on the 26th of April 2020. What lead to me getting kicked was that the other moderator and I were inactive for a period of time. The other moderator was inactive for quite a while and I became inactive in the summer of 2019 as i signed up for a military band course that would last for the entire summer vacation without Internet access. During this time SMM2 came out and the head mod for SMM2 wanted to incorporate the entire SMM speedrun communities to one discord. Noticing our inactivity they requested for our removal from moderation. Once I came back and noticed this; I became very disinterested in speedrunning until the lockdown began in March of 2020 where I'd pick up the game again https://www.speedrun.com/smm3ds/thread/m85ez therefor leading me to become moderator again as at that time and even today, I am the person with the most knowledge about the game.
