Thread: Game Requests still pending 1+ week

Started by: Rayquaza911Rayquaza911

(edited: )

Also keep in mind that school/college has been starting up since last week for a lot of folks and some are just getting off vacation, so I assume it'll be busy for another week or two before things speed back up.

So don't be surprised at some slowdowns right now, I'm a parent myself so this has been all top priority for me, I'll probably start getting back to the submissions within the next couple of days myself. One of us just recently got back as well so expect some requests to get pushed through.

As someone else said submissions can typically take up to two weeks depending on a lot of factors and the queue.

Reject and explain once again. If you give in to your feelings, you'll regret it and it'll cause worst problems further down the road when said person keeps doing it and knows you'll give in.

Simple as that.

Don't know what game it is but if you want to contact staff the discord is useful. You can find a link under the "More" tab at the bottom.

Thread: about game requesting

Started by: SioNSioN

I think that got added right around the time new staff got selected and right before new rules were enforced (Had to look at the SRC twitter) so I want to say it got lucky.

As NihilistComedyHour said, you could do what he says and we can see what happens.

Thread: Reject: This doesn't appear notable

I think I've seen this subject kicked around like a dead horse now for a long while now.

When people are provided with actual information regarding a rejection, people still complain anyway, in my opinion I think no matter how we choose to reject for a reason people will always complain and fight over it regardless as its been proven time and time again. Explain to us what makes it "notable", provide more information about the game, a lot of people do not do this and this is not our fault. Time and time again, we try as much as we can, it still doesn't mean a game would get accepted but it would go miles and beyond. This is something people need to understand and this isn't uncommon, many sites follow their own guidelines and ruleset but there is always a limit.

"Notable" is not a lazy explanation, there are lots of game that literally do not need an explanation on why it was rejected because its that simple, we get bombed with lots of games that just....I don't even know how to put it into words. When the few who get rejected complain on here, they are typically fine and we provide information regarding the rejection (and most of the time there is no issue). It's usually the people who have nothing to do with the game that get involved in the discussion and end up sparking some kind of argument just for the sake of doing it. For me I try to be insightful with what I see, if it turns ugly I just ignore it entirely because it ends up becoming worst (repetitive and redundant).

Again, I personally ask to actual provide more information about the game itself in the notes section as it goes a long ways, it may not promise it would get accepted but it still goes a long ways and has a better chance (We aren't perfect speedrunners, we're still human). Sometimes I feel people just complain more than they are to try and fix the problem (we can only go so far), it isn't like none of us don't read any of these posts but they get repetitive and redundant.

This is just what I've been seeing and what I personally feel. With that said, I'm no longer going to post in this thread, it has already been said in a forum post somewhere that eventually it will be known what makes things appear more notable among other things but it's going to be a while (rules request section on the site IIRC).

It's impossible to give you a straight easy answer at this time, if I gave you my own personal opinion it would be taken as the standard and facts of SRC, (it could create conflicted issues with different users and possibly the other content mods though we all try our best to follow what the stones are laid out to be) when it comes to every game that we get in the requests.

Though, it is planned to make it more clear on what makes something more "notable" in the near future, I assure you. Sometimes the problem is how to exactly word a rejection, there are a lot of people who don't take it well and would rather go on the offensive then have a kind discussion about it.

EDIT: I edited this post a couple of times to make it more clear. Probably isn't clear enough.

Looking too deep into this, if anything, reading the original post brings in itself contradictory.

Are you saying that all the games you listed weren't notable and we shouldn't of accepted any of the listed games?

Because of the logic you are applying, you seem to acknowledge that you knew they probably entirely weren't worth submitting but did anyway knowing they weren't notable (new or not) that we made a mistake of accepting certain ones?

EDIT: To prevent redundancy this very subject was touched on here not too long ago although the case was a bit different: https://www.speedrun.com/The_Site/thread/qwrl2

Because 99% of Atari 2600 games are purely score based (which at this time we don't accept), nearly none of them you can complete. I can't speak for every Atari game on the site.

I figured it would be pretty obvious why it would be rejected and if you'd like to look at Boxing out of the Atari games....well...it really doesn't appear notable. It is about as generic as it gets when you compare it to the many other boxing games on the site already.

Thread: Same Game Issue

Started by: Jaypin88

(edited: )

During some research, it appeared they seem to be very similar games if not the same with minor differences.

You are welcome to resubmit to explain the differences if they are dramatic enough to warrant it, though if that isn't the case you might try seeing if the moderators on the board would make it a different category. When people submit game requests we often encourage (or hope) people will use the notes page to put as much information as possible, we aren't perfect and can't know everything about every game there is. The more obscure the game, the harder it is to find lots of information on it.

Thread: Is NTR allowed

Started by: blueYOSHIblueYOSHI

(edited: )

Its all game by game case, I know for some titles it just doesn't work (Mario Kart 7) due to all the loading screen differences. Though what I've learned and seen is that this is generally fine for anything that uses IGT.

Personally, I think banning everything can be stupid. I personally just throw time penalties on things instead or I use a time "limit" you can get with it and going beyond on wouldn't be allowed. Otherwise all you are doing is shrinking down your own community and preventing them from even trying to get into anything if its their only solution. This is 2018, most people just stream attempts and love the appeal they get with it and many people would love to see actual runs from 3ds games.

People look too deeply into these things and seriously, for the 3ds? I think it should be lighten up with what I suggested not just with this game but others.

EDIT: @blueYOSHI I want to add that I did talk to Cosmo about NTR and what it can do. For now, it is accepted for this game.

It should be allowed, anyone who actually reviews their speedrun should be taking a look on it. All NTR viewing does is stream the gameplay, the framerate is limited due to the limitations of the 3ds (30-45fps generally, you'll never get a higher framerate with the software because the 3ds just doesn't have enough power to provide 60fps through wireless) and it is also very easy to tell if they are cheating during an actual run.

In no form or shape does it give you an advantage (This isn't like Nintendon't or emulators). It's just a way to stream the footage, and it does provide a good enough image to see clearly what is going on.

I would trust it over a photo-shopped image or an image you can barely even see. Considering all this, you can net a consistent 30fps which is acceptable. If a video posted looked very chopped otherwise, just reject it due to poor quality.

The rules stated for that category;

"The main category is Any%, however you are not allowed to collect a single coin. You also cannot use savestates. If you collect a coin you must either restart the run or reload from a previous save point from in-game."

You never collect a single coin, if you do you reset or reload to the previous save point. The entire point of the category is to never collect a coin. What you said defeats the entire purpose of the category and point, which isn't allowed.

No, it's more like public shaming (or blackmail) but it should be removed I'm sure one of the mods will get to it.

As for the video itself, I highly recommend that you report it to youtube since that is where the source is coming from.

I'm not seeing anything on site regarding a dox....though that video that was posted should basically get reported and flagged on youtube.
