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

Started by: lewisandsparklewisandspark

@thegamer1185thegamer1185 I assure you, we looked at everyone's logs including the leaderboard and this is nothing there that implies you ever submitted. I did reach out to @meauxdalmeauxdal to talk about the situation for you, he assures me that no such runs were ever deleted and he wants you to resubmit your runs to the board. There is a slight chance that you could've submitted those runs during a time when the site had been rolled back, but either way you are encouraged not just by us but the mods of the game to submit those runs. There is no malicious intent here.

Thread: is this normal?

Started by: DrunkGeckoDrunkGecko

@MidbossMidboss "incompetent", while I had a strong feeling everything screamed as a meme to me (I mentioned this in the discord at one point) it's still mismanaging a leaderboard. The fact that this was played off as long as it was is, still ridiculous and reminds me of so much of April Fool's madness on the site. The moderators of said game obviously need to get their act together and maybe read up on the rules/moderation pages on the site which have been instated ages ago.

If people want to meme and joke all day then might I advise everyone who is part of this to join a comedy club and see how many laughs everyone gets?

@Countdown42Countdown42 Full-Mods aren't developers on the site, our job is exactly what you think it is "police SRC by fulfilling its rules and policy's".

People come to this website to view times, videos posted and user discussion, no one comes here to see a leaderboard filled cheated runs, public shaming and other ridiculous things that might be on a games leaderboard if a game moderator doesn't even want to manage a leaderboard they shouldn't even be a moderator in the first place. Moderators of said games are held to a higher standard on any leaderboard, the fact this happened at all is in itself ridiculous.

with the "pauses" flag to indicate that pause buffering d-pad input was used. Since this is obviously cheating, an extra column was added noted that the run was performed using cheats. Effective immediately, a new boolean column will be added, "Plays Randomizers", which will show the current state of affairs as noted above. Note that in spite of all available evidence, Midboss' run will not be removed from the leaderboard, as the community feels as a community that being pubically known to play randomizers is ultimately a worse punishment."

Okay, so since both of you are now out of rational thinking, variables were removed because they appeared to be shaming the player and they seemed at first to me to be a meme. Regardless of how anyone feels about it, they should NOT of existed regardless of what mindset is at play here. I regret not talking to Mill instead.

Going off the provided thread, the run was cheated yet still stupidly accepted, randomziers also aren't even something that should be on any main game leaderboard because they are ridiculous to track (category extensions is probably going beyond this). If there was a "community vote" I would like to see it.

Reading that post is literally nothing more than publicly trying to shame someone over cheating, joke or not, this has to be one of the most ridiculous things I've ever read.

Edit: And even going forward, if "devteam" was this much of an issue why wasn't this addressed to site staff a year ago?

I cleaned up the variables, most likely just Mill memeing on MidBoss but if they get re-added I'll talk to Mill about it.

Thread: Requesting Marathons

Started by: GyooGyoo

@warm_hamwarm_ham I'm going to butt in here and say we're going to reject the request.

The first marathon hardly had much to it to even warrant a page, the second marathon looks like cesspool with some spam posts within the marathon's forum, you also had a handful of people submitting trailers and other non-relevant submissions. Not only that, but that marathon also couldn't maintain a 24 hour cause.

Thread: Naming conventions for games with same name

Started by: spicefatherspicefather

Using the year would be more ideal as there is no saying if far into the future that the game will get ported to a future console. Typically if a game uses the console instead it is because there are multiple games using the same name but the games across other platforms are not the same or different enough to warrant a split from the original board.

"but isn't it at least kinda fucked that every other month some leaderboard gets hijacked and people just have to assume that they need to change their passwords again?"

Isn't it kinda fucked that people reuse the same passwords or simply add a single digit to the end of their old passwords? People should be taking care of their accounts on any website, how hard is it to update your passwords on a regularly basis this is 2019 and you are going to tell me people are too illiterate about security even at the most basic level? Has it gotten to that point where people just don't care enough about themselves...to take care of themselves by just updating their passwords again, on a regularly basis? Just for something as simple as this? People literally have actually told us they have either reused passwords or "changed/added a single digit" to the old one.

Any service/website is going to tell you to always update your passwords. If there was an actual security breach what makes you think some idiot would be wasting his time with user accounts when he could have total control over the site by acquiring one of the admins accounts?

Again, you don't seem to be reading, us Fmods cannot add these features but its something we absolutely want added even Volvagia wants 2FA added but damn dude its still just two people trying to get stuff done. Of course we see what people want, people want a lot of things on this site and I agree that sometimes they are just far and inbetween. I swear there was a thread on here talking about 2FA, a lot of people weren't sure how they wanted it done but it seemed that it is something they want as well.

We don't care about the damn controversies, people are going to say shit and whatever they want and we aren't going to be able to change their minds most of the time, we aren't telling people to "you do it yourself" either, there is interest in fixing things but again you literally disregarded most if not half of what @LivLiv just posted.

We are in agreement when it comes about that we want further improvement with security related situations/issues, there is no debate.

Edit: From Pac - "Just a note that we're treating MFA is an immediate priority and it's currently being implemented. It will be up and running in the next couple of days."

@6oliath6oliath Can't you find something better to do. I mean the rules leave little to no room for interpretation on purpose.

Like, there is no debate runner and video is removed from the leaderboard, you don't legally own the time itself as people for some reason think they do. If people want to track that, let them because at the end of the day it solves both issues.

Thread: What is the best flavor of pizza?

Started by: OctolingOctoling

Oops, made a couple typos I meant "Breadeaux and Godfathers" both of these may be a midwest thing and not everywhere in the US but Breadeaux is highly known for its "French Bread Crust Pizza" and Godfathers is more known for their thicker crust and heavier cheese usage.

Thread: What is the best flavor of pizza?

Started by: OctolingOctoling

(edited: )

All this is "american pizza", I've always wanted to try a true pizza from the source....Italy. Otherwise, there's a lot of "okay to very good pizzas" and I don't have much of a strong preference of who I prefer, pizza has changed a lot in 20 years and I remember loving Pizza Hut when they used to actually make their crust way thicker but nowadays I think I lean a bit towards places like Breadduex and Godthers.

Has anyone ever been there and eaten pizza there in Italy? How does it compared to the American version?

@ProtokidProtokid Look bud we aren't going to play this drama game here, Liv gave you a perfectly good answer and if you don't like what was provided than get over it and go elsewhere. This thread is also for moderation requests (read the first post), you are still welcome to make a new thread about the subject but don't expect any different answers within it.

All you are doing at this point is instigating shit and we aren't going to put up with it, now please stop wasting our time and yours and whoever else you decided to stand in line for.

Thread: SRC Rules Feedback

You don't get the final say because there is literally nothing listed on the leaderboard anymore aside of a single time that again could belong to anyone, as much as you don't want to admit this, there is no actual issue here.

Well, nonetheless we aren't going to go marching into a games leaderboard and remove a time that has no video/runner attached to it when the mods are obviously very aware of who/what exactly caused that time to get on the board. Even if that time was removed, as Talic said you are never going to stop them from talking about that time, ever and people will always ask about it as well and mods will always keep talking about it, it makes no difference right now if that time alone was removed from the board.

As it stands right now, aside of the mods not really listening to their own ruleset they aren't doing anything wrong. The time on the board could be anyones, could be mine as far as anyone knows, if you don't like it then toughen up about it and walk away as you have been or you could always reinstate that empty slot with your video of that run and re-attach things which if you ever did change your mind I highly doubt the mods on the board would ever reject it.

There's no gray area here, it is what it is presented as and we still follow the sites rules regarding these cases.
