Thread: Level selection

This may be me being a bit of an air head (a regular occurrence), but is there any way that we can select levels?

Thread: My run is now in the wrong catagory?

Started by: BenJ2310BenJ2310

Just seen that my UV Speed run has been shifted into the ITYTD catagory, how has this happened?

It clearly shows on the proof video that UV is selected.

Can one of the mods please advise?

Thread: Request leaderboard moderation (Read the first post before posting!)

Started by: lewisandsparklewisandspark

Hey peeps, I would like to request for run verification on https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​dn3dwt - I currently have 2 potential untied WR's in for verification and can see that besides 1 mod, the others have not been active in over 3 months each. I have attempted to reach out to all 3, however all of their social media has been inactive for some time. As I have not been a member of speedrunning.com for more than 30 days, I know that I am not eligible for mod status just yet, nor do I feel qualified for such a position. Please can someone drop me a line on this one? The runs have only been in since Saturday, however I feel that they will sit there stale for quite some time.

Same situation on the Duke Nukem 3D boards too, 1 run out for verification at this time, similar mod team and similar activity.

Thanks 🙂

Hi there guys! I'm Ben from Manchester in the UK. I'm also known as RetroRedHead on YouTube, Reddit and Twitter.

I'm currently 2 weeks into Speedrunning in general and loving every second. I've always had a passing interest in the sport but never been brave enough to actually partake untill now.

I'm currently working towards setting some good times in Doom and Duke Nukem 3D.

I'm currently PCless so having to run on console ports (Xbox One). A disadvantage to some but to others it means a greater challenge, at least it does for me 🙂

Everyone I've had interaction with so far (be that not many) has been great and the r/speedrun subreddit has been more than welcoming, especially with my first top 3 place in Doom (Xbox Arcade Version).

I can't wait to break into the top spots for Doom and Duke Nukem and hopefully some more games too along the way!

All the best,

Ben aka RetroRedHead
