@DelekatesDelekates To be fair, you started this thread off typing in all caps, almost yelling then continued being rude to a handful people in this thread.
I'd suggest changing your tone if you'd like a honest discussion since I am just assuming that's what you made this thread for?

Thread: My opinions on the new changes

To me this looks like a pretty poor effort at creating a separate and different business (profit) model for speedrun.com and simply riding the business models of other sites that Elo owns like Dotabuff and Overbuff. If you go to either of these sites right now, you can see they operate completely similar in terms of ads and how they are displayed. Personally already realized it would only be a matter of time before speedrun.com would end up like this too when the PM announced at the beginning of the site transfer that they would release their ad program over the site in the near future. I really really dislike how a lot of corpo's think about these sorts of strategies nowadays. To me it feels like straight up pissing off an entire user base which consists of well over hundreds of thousands of users that have been around much longer than a corpo has and the user base that they only recently inherited is worth it when it brings in good profit. Don't get me wrong, I understand to a degree. This site has to become profitable when its owned by a corpo, and yes, everyone is going to be pleased with new moderator options but please, for the love of god, this way of making this site profitable is not it. This site is NOT a Dotabuff, not an Overbuff. This is speedrun.com. People here are not interested in game statistics. Listen to the communities and users here, and stick to your promises that you made on the 13th of October on Twitter Sabina. You were going to earn the trust of the community and so far you are not doing a good job.

@JugHugJugHug Since the game natively doesn't support binding 2 actions to 1 key through the settings. It makes things like Extendo grabbing much easier for example.

Ah well, seems like he was already unbanned anyway. Maybe Amei with his absolute 5Head shouldn't post spam runs KEKW

@RodGRodG No point in posting in the forums about this. Message ShadowDraft or any other FMod to get this sorted. Fastest solution.

Thread: old site layout?

Started by: SpicymcreeSpicymcree

Honestly, and this is not to defend Elo and I also dislike the new changes on this, but, a site ran by a corpo will more than often mean you won't see random forum replies from staff members unless they are absolutely sure that's the way to go. That doesn't mean Elo doesn't read replies. I'm actually confident they do. Besides that, because an x amount of people complain in the forum about that they dislike changes will also mean there has to be internal evaluations/talk about that of course. That takes some time. It's only been just, what a week or so? I'd say give it a little bit of time at least. We are so used to a site ran by one man basically, and Pac was pretty quick to react but you have to understand that a site ran by a corpo is a whole different situation. There's no longer "I run this so I can immediately decide if I have to roll this back if people dislike it".

Thread: My opinions on the new update

I mean, if opening user profiles "kills your brain to see that shit" then I wonder how you ever managed so long on this site because there has been way worse 'shit' than this and you know that. So drop the childish threats to leave the site and get over it dude.

Anyway, a news column on the right side just doesn't feel right on a user's profile. Like Liv mentioned: "people usually read news updates like those once and then be done with it" which is a good point. The news column also hides an ad in the middle which is kinda annoying considering its in between a news element that asks to be clicked.

To Elo: honestly, listen to the people in here. Kinda feel like this was a thing nobody asked for and, more importantly, I kinda feel the design concept of it is even stranger since.. even if the news column is a placeholder until something more fitting gets there, then I feel like it's better to not change anything at all until then?

There's a bunch of.. well.. small and bigger feature requests and bugfixes on user profiles that were brought forward recently and in the past that would probably be much better to look into and to consider implementing.

Don't think anyone on the forums will be able to help you with that besides pointing you to the API.
I'd suggest contacting support@speedrun.com to assist with this.

Thread: Why are 3 of the 1-Digit usernames banned?

Started by: 5

(edited: )

I don't think they got banned for being a number. If someone else makes the account "Daravae2" and misbehaves, why would I ask if someone with almost the same name as me got banned? Either way, asking why an account got banned isn't going to get you an answer since that information is reserved for site staff.
And if anything people are just gonna do useless speculation in this thread because they don't know the specifics.
Bottom line is that if you don't misbehave, I can't see a reason why you would be banned for being a number.

World Records are not meaningless, arbitrary things.. What a silly thing to say.

Getting a World Record is a big achievement for a ton of people. The problem is that it's often being used a tool to measure success which ruins the achievement on it's own. Cool achievements, like speedrun World Records are not suddenly more important when you have more of them. They are only important because they are the fastest time ever achieved in a game.
