Not everything should be years-long projects!I was quite baffled back then when it got rejected because the reasoning was a bit odd to say the least, specially since there were "cheat hacks" before and there have been a number of "x2 exp & money" hacks to be released since then (like for Dragon Quest games)....But you know what?In a way, I'm even happy it got rejected. It gave me the push to try to make something more, and while it took me quite some time to get it finished, I ended making a more complete modification of the game that made me feel way more satisfied with the game, which I released back in 2017. For example, looking back, x2 Exp wasn't enough to bring the game to a better overall pace in my humble opinion. But increased Exp in combination with changes to the Exp Tables for each character, the game felt a lot better, because then you can optimize it for characters that go missing for a long time, or join later and such (or characters that take much longer to level up than others). Of course, there were many other changes but that's just one related to this. In any case, I wish the best of lucks for you and your hack, and I'm happy to see that the old dropbox link is still working. It takes a lot of you to leave a rar file unattended for years, I tell you.

I think you should resubmit and message Nightcrawler and link him to this thread. He's a cool guy and is constantly on top of the ever evolving policy and frankly I think this one just slipped through the cracks. Just make sure to write in the description that it's to bring the exp/zenny system more in line with the GBA release because this really is a balance hack more than anything. It's certainly not a cheat when the grinding is still substantial even with double exp/zenny and anyone who had actually played the game would know that. I love your BoF2 Maeson hack too. I was going to do a full Lets Play but Ryusui/D4S lured me away with their retranslation and enhancement. Your complete overhaul from everything from magic, to shaman combos to character balance. I wish I could use both at once. I know Maeson already does this but it might be a nice option for those that want a less grindy version of vanilla. <3Side note, BoF2 Maeson is about to break 3k downloads ^_^
