@AmoebaUKAmoebaUK No, you seem to miss the point. They can still list a time without a runner or video on the board, that time is not tied to anything whatsoever on the leaderboard. Is it stupid? Yes, but it's considered fine. This is a different issue with them not following their own ruleset and that's something that should be taken up with some of the other mods but I assume because the mods may had reviewed that particular time before they might consider it still fine to list even though its still kinda stupid.

@AmoebaUKAmoebaUK At that point what difference does it make? The runner is listed as anonymous nor is the video part of the listing. Let it go.

Thread: Partnering the Discord server?

Started by: CarkInTheDarkCarkInTheDark

I always wondered about it but I don't really know myself either. Nowadays though, partnered discord servers have stricter guideline to be maintained in order....more policy's in other words, I don't think Pac wants more responsibility and to be more held accountable with how users may act. It would also potentially require even more staff for the discord to keep the standards partnership demands of.

Again, my words not are factual and Pac may want to sometime but I agree with Daravae that it's such low priority it really doesn't matter.

In the future please let one of us Fmods on the site know about situations like this so that we can handle them, it seems like this one has been going on for nearly three months and nothing seems to have changed. I've warned the user that any further repeats of this will result in a site ban, we don't want our users on the site being harassed, their effort and time being wasted due to people submitting potential fake, flawed, cheated runs either.

I am going to lock this thread, it seems to me the leaderboard mods here know what is best and are doing a great job. No reason to give this any further attention, we apologize for not knowing about this sooner.

I think they have every right to reject your run, and they give a very clear message to boot. Personally, if this is an actual long going problem and seeing as you seem to be calling names nonstop, pretending to act dumb too add you are quickly leading yourself up for a ban yourself. I recommend to stop, do what the mods have told you to do and clean up your attitude.

@afnannen136afnannen136 Provide an actual game run in the relevant categories, we aren't going to consider giving anyone moderator status for running something where all you do is lock the game up (misc categories are not good representative for this). Provide the run here afterwards and we'll reconsider.

@sneakyscarabsneakyscarab Seems fine, added you.

@JSR_JSR_ Added you, doesn't seem like they are coming back.

@SerSanjuSerSanju Added you.

@KostyA4247KostyA4247 Seems their twitch is gone as well, I've gone ahead and added you. However, I noticed the logo on the leaderboard was barely viewable and it was impossible to make out if it said "speedrun.com" on it so I've removed it. Feel free to create a better logo.

"That would mean that games that dont have RNG apparently do have RNG"

No, I assure you Wario Land 4 has no RNG. We aren't talking about real life here, we are talking about video games.

@GriffinRupeGriffinRupe No need to go on repeat, I do not check the thread everyday. I still feel I want to give Braden sometime and I've talked to the other Fmods a bit about it, what we've agreed to do is put you on the board as a regular moderator until Braden time rolls over at 21 days (its already nearly at two weeks as of this post). If Braden does not return we'll fully move you to super on the board.

I noticed in the archive link that you need to buy a license; "Without having a license installed, GamerCap recordings will be limited to 2 minutes. A full license for GamerCap costs US$30."

I do not know the effects of this with streaming but I probably wouldn't add this at this time.

• The following rules will be strictly enforced:
• Do not list a player's runs on a leaderboard if they explicitly do not want it listed.
• Do not copy or reupload a player's video without permission from the user.
• Do not list a player's username on a leaderboard if they explicitly do not want it listed.
• If a player does not want their top time listed, it is acceptable to just not list the top time. It is also acceptable to list a top time with the username "Anonymous" and no video linked. An anonymized reuploaded video may be used only with the explicit permission of the player.
• It is generally acceptable to document a top time without contacting the player, unless the individual explicitly requests it not be listed, as described above.
• Do not copy other online leaderboards without permission from the owners of those leaderboards.

If the person who did the run wants to submit then allow them to do so. Force adding times has caused many issues in various communities, we try our best on the site to respect the wishes of runners.

@GriffinRupeGriffinRupe I just find it very strange, you submitted a run today then decided to track the person down afterwards. Regardless, this is a case of a double-edged sword and technically he is active, we'll see if he ends up sticking around by the end of the week because him not having any social media bothers me but it also seems you managed to get ahold of him even if he read it, might I also suggest that you send him another message of posting here in the meantime (unless he decides to post in the thread of the game).

Right now it can go either one of two ways and I'd like to see if he comes back around.

@zir0niczir0nic To be completely honest and you need to understand for him, he handles nearly all the ROBLOX game requests and I can't imagine how many of those he also personally handles himself per leaderboard moderation as well. It also has only been around two weeks, people do have lives and are busy no one should ever have to literally verify a run as soon as possible just because someone is demanding it the guy has at least been communicating with you. I do agree that blackbird should be removed for not only having any contact methods but being inactive. What I will do for you however is if nothing has changed next weekend I will manually add you as verifier to the game and reach out to series mod about future games, so for now have some patience.

@GriffinRupeGriffinRupe No, you literally submitted your run today and he literally verified a run yesterday, while he has no contacts you should at least make the effort to post under the game forum of the game.

@FreiFrei We appreciate your honesty, however as you seem to be aware your account is still very new and at this time we are going to wait preferably a week to verify your activity on the site. We may make a special case here, post here again when your account reaches the seven day mark.

@JustAComicBookNerdJustAComicBookNerd Because becoming series mod doesn't let you become mod on those games, if he is inactive on the other boards and they have no other mod on them that are active then you can request here to become mod of those on here. Series mod itself otherwise has no barring and we are trying to only give it when its necessary, for this series case it isn't, nearly all the games are already added and it doesn't appear that they are making these games any longer but if this ever changes we wouldn't mind changing our minds.

Note: One of the games in the series were added with no runs on the board, we also do not approve of series mods adding games for the sake of it because it snipes others out of requesting the game who may be active and provide runs for it. Not everyone is aware they can request moderator status for a game.

So in short, I've taken a look I have no issue if you want to become mod on these games but we are still going to ask you to provide a run for said games in question so we aren't just freely giving out moderator status on these games. If you have a run please provide that here and I'll add you to these games but series mod as I mentioned is out of the question and I have no issue at least removing the current series mod.
