Nintendo Expand On Why Super Mario Maker Courses Are Deleted

After facing criticism in recent weeks, Nintendo has expanded on their reasoning behind why certain Super Mario Maker courses are deleted.

Enthusiastic creators have been left disappointed and confused to discover that their creations are no longer published on Course World, with Nintendo on occasion choosing to remove them from the server. In looking to help address the resulting concern, they have clarified that such instances relate to one of five criteria:

  • Low stars/plays

After a fixed period of time, courses with low stars/plays will be automatically deleted from the server.

  • Bugs

Courses that include bugs that were unintended by either the course creator or the developers will be deleted. It’s important that we remove levels with bugs quickly, because letting these levels remain in Course World can lead to negative outcomes for many players such as players experiencing levels in unfair ways that the original course creator did not intend, or re-writing “World Record” times.

  • Requesting stars from other users

Courses that are explicitly asking for stars from other players will be deleted. For example, using words such as “Like”, “Yeah!”, and the “★” symbol in their course names. Please change the course name when saving a course that includes these words.

  • Inappropriate Content

Courses that contain something inappropriate, such as offensive language or phrases will be deleted.

  1. I wish we could have a seperate dedicated section for Auto-Mario levels in general so I never have to ‘play’ them in the random courses.
