Does anyone else think Wario Land ROM hacking might take off soon?

Based on the goings on with @shinespeciall's editor tool, @Blanchon's LUA based Wario Land 3 hack and @Tiger21820's Master Quest, I think there may be a better chance than ever of at least one Wario Land game finally developing a sizable modding community, and that it may potentially help bring some interest back to the forums in the process.

Plus we seem to be doing okay at the custom content and programming front too, which is especially useful for a new modding scene. New Super Mario Bros Wii seems to be struggling since the only people who know how to add custom... well, almost anything are Newer Team, whereas Super Mario 64 ROM hacking is booming due to people going wild with custom elements and personal creativity.

But yeah, what do you think? Do you think we're on the verge of seeing a decent size ROM hacking community develop for at least one Wario Land game?

To be honest, i am not that motivated these days, i cannot see people making new levels and put them in the server, and lots of things in the editor have had a first version of GUI, most of the leftovers problems are hard to solve or not that important, and there is no big useful finding in the rom in recent months but complicated and headache game engine. And there are several other reasons perhaps including i playing too much Terraria, lol.
i am appriciate that people still hype for the editor, watch updates we made. i think without new big features planned, i am going to do more QoL changes on the editor at night in weekdays, there are still a lot of things i can do.

I begun constructing one level on your editor in march, the first level of topaz entrance (in the style of the original game). It was kinda funny thinking new puzzles variation with the cat blocks. I'll try to finish it. :)

Making the editor is not my personal work, goldensunboy and several other people help a lot on the code. In the last year, we suspended the project because all of us had something else to pay attention to and didn't have a lot of free time to work on the project, some really good people left our discord server who contributed a lot on making different levels. that's a heavy strike. I want to say that, i won't give up working on the editor, so just be patients with the new release in github (i said the new beta-10 or a v1.0 will be released in 2019 but i failed). We have made a lot of changes and new features in the last year and i started to build the editor every time there's some new code added in the server, we are still working on it, but without using good method to publish the new-build editor(they are just inofficial builds in the discord server). Perhaps CM30 can help with build up the website to help spreading the editor and people's hacks to the world, or we do something else to solve this problem temporarily. To some degree, we still have a lot of things to learn.
