After all the hubbub of the Nintendo Direct, which included confirmation of a major update for Super Mario Maker, Nintendo rather quietly provided a reminder of some key rules that, if broken, could lead to bans from the online 'Course World' component of the game.

The notification came on Miiverse, outlining three key rules.

While the first and third rules are expected, the middle rule could potentially cause conflict with the most eager speedrunners. Exploiting bugs to set record times is a standard practice for some, yet now it seems that option is being taken off the table.

What do you think of these rules and the threat of restricted access to Super Mario Maker's online features? Let us know.

With thanks to Ryan Millar for the heads up.
