Would that have unbumped the thread? From my experience that's not really how it works with many forums so I figured I'd just own up to it, and as it was inoffensive and on topic I really didn't see the need to just remove it. The thread was open as well, so if you'll pardon me I don't really understand the controversy. I'll be sure to check more carefully at any rate.

A combination of google and sleep deprivation. Google didn't seem to notice the timestamps either and I was scouting out games to run. It was only after I hit post when I noticed just how old the posts were and by then, there wasn't much I could really do.

Home Alone for the NES is not only one of the easiest games in the world to speedrun, but is also the easiest game to get a world record on (there are literally over a hundred speedrunners who are tied with first on this site, of various skill levels).
Bear in mind getting that WR is kind of a joke, but it's still a fun little achievement and introduces you to the idea of using glitches, game knowledge, a little bit of luck, and good timing in order to go fast.

EDIT: Not to bump a six year old thread or anything lmao. Just noticed the timestamps.

Thread: Transformation Animation Skip

Started by: burst_errorburst_error

Jumping in a year later, this skip would be really fortuitous in rare occasions. The stars would have to align of course, but it would definitely help a Speedrun as long as you aren't waiting too long for the transformation frame.
