Thread: New moderation team

Started by: AlfredoSalzaAlfredoSalza

Hello. I'm retiring as TLK SNES mod.

@SBDWolfSBDWolf is getting temporary mod status, his first (only?) task will be to make a voting/selection process to choose a new team of mods for the leaderboard. He should be posting info about this very soon, here or via the Discord channel.

Please direct all further questions about this process to @SBDWolfSBDWolf

Hi. Yeah I noticed this too and sent a message to @INUQQINUQQ about it on december last year:

Apparently the issue is that the correct video link should be this one:

I didn't get an answer from him and according to his profile, he has not visited speedrun.com in like 5 months.

I will proceed to update the video link in the following days, thanks for the reminder.

I tried to contact Elo staff and some mods about this, two months ago : https://imgur.com/a/HCDfrsv but didn't get an estimated date or something.
So apparently nobody knows when this functionality will be coming back, if ever ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Thread: PAL region and minor rule update

Started by: AlfredoSalzaAlfredoSalza

(edited: )

-You can now select PAL region in your run submissions.
-The DCG rule now states the following:

"Disney Classic Games (2019) is banned here. You can use the Category Extensions leaderboard for DCG."

This is meant to help new runners.

Hi. Today, I was informed by a Full Mod of speedrun.com that KingTayyab is now "Banned indefinitely" from this website. Following his advice, I will remove his 12:24 Any% Easy run.

I will leave the link to the run video here:

Thread: About KingTayyab

Started by: AlfredoSalzaAlfredoSalza

Following the banning of KingTayyab from the TLK Discord, an investigation took place the last 2 days to determine if he should also be banned from this leaderboard.

What I can conclude:

1) There is no solid proof yet of him cheating, or at least not anything that gives him a considerable advantage.

2) Following the Speedrun.com site rules https://www.speedrun.com/rules, a runner can get banned for "Excessive harassment". After investigating, I feel that there is clearly a certain degree of harassment or "speedbullying" or "boasting" or something similar. The point being that there are people displeased with KingTayyab for a variety of reasons.

After gathering various points of view, I don't think this whole situation can be called "excessive" and I'm confident that this will not happen again in the near future between the parties directly involved.

Therefore, KingTayyab is not banned from this leaderboard. For now, this will serve as an "official warning" (as he himself proposed it should be) about his general behavior in this community.

Thread: Leaderboard update #2

Started by: AlfredoSalzaAlfredoSalza

(edited: )

-TLK Category Extensions is now linked to this leaderboard. This means you can now find a new link on the sidebar to be directed to Cat. Ex.
-As announced a week ago, "Any% Normal" and DCG are now part of TLK Category Extensions. Every runner in those categories were asked if they agreed to the transfer and they all answered favorably.
-"Any% Easy" is now the default category, as discussed last week. This means that when you access the LB, this is the first category you will see.

Hi. I'm a mod for The Lion King Category extensions https://www.speedrun.com/the_lion_king_category_extensions and I'd like for it to become the game type "Category Extension" of https://www.speedrun.com/lionkingsnes so that they are linked this way.

Thanks!

Hi @CeseseCesese
About your first point: you are probably right about the dividing, but as you posted in the other thread, I'm sure you could see the current state of affairs. I think this new LB will be better for the future of the community and will alleviate some existing tensions. As much as I don't agree with the way that "TheLions" communicated its petition, I think they have some valid points, which this new LB hopes to address.

The 3 mods are the two candidates presented in the other thread, and 1 recently appointed Genesis mod. They will be able to add more mods if they want.

Thread: TLK Category Extensions

Started by: AlfredoSalzaAlfredoSalza

(edited: )

After some discussion with the TLK community via the forums and DM's, a new Leaderboard has been created: The Lion King Category Extensions.

https://www.speedrun.com/the_lion_king_category_extensions

In this new Leaderboard:
-Any% Normal and DCG will be promoted to main categories.
-New categories will be created, according to the petition made by TheLions.
-Three community members plus myself will be appointed for moderation. I will remove myself as mod in a week or so. The three mods will be able to add other mods as well after that.
-I have already contacted the three mods.
-The new LB will be open to creating new categories, including IL's.

Please be patient for a few days to see the new leaderboard populated with mods, runs, rules, and new categories. Right now it's pretty much empty.

You can check Mario Odyssey Category Extensions or other similar LB's to get an idea about what exactly this kind of LB is.

If anyone is against this, please let me know.

Yeah, I agree that a mod needs to be trustworthy. And earning trust takes time.

My opinions regarding additional categories also apply to IL. https://pastebin.com/E3y34S0n

I don't feel the need to expand on that any further. Line 14 is particularly important.

Yeah, it's not easy to tell what an "active runner" or someone "more valid" to be a mod is.

@StormyStormy
Yeah, you have a valid point. I just have a hard time telling what an "active runner" exactly is, as I stated with a rethoric question.

I also have a hard time telling if someone who started playing this game for less than a year is "more valid" or not to be a mod that someone that knows the TLK community (or more than one speedrun community) for +4 years, as is the case of some of the candidates I mentioned.

And I repeat: I will consider other candidates if anyone propose them.

@PlayingWithDickPlayingWithDick I agree with you that some sort of voting is necessary to make the changes proposed. As you say, at the moment I see less than 10 people here, which is hardly representative. So let's wait and see if more opinions get posted.

@StormyStormy
1) I'd gladly read and apply a new ruleset for DCG that doesn't involve creating any other additional category for it. Maybe someone can create another forum thread to discuss this?
2) I talk with Fonzoide every week and TMR recently started streaming in Twitch again. I'm sorry if you don't know or care about them. I will consider other candidates if anyone propose them, as I already stated my opinion about Nichole and PlayingWithDick.

Hi @NicholeNichole.
1) Yes, as you said, I already have discussed both in private and in public the matter of your mod request. I already said all I wanted to say about this.

2) DCG is already added to the LB, as I stated in my latest pastebin.

3) It is not a surprise to me that you haven't heard 2/4 of the names.

4) About me (or anyone) not being an active runner: uhm... If I submitted a sub-17 (or any time) run tomorrow, would I be considered "active"?

5) I currently don't know about other way to ask for moderation in the site, other than the two that I mentioned in my pastebin.
