You can do the run but there is not gonna be a leaderboard for it. Simply because theres no demand for it.

@Liv I have already talked to Bokoblins and he will take a look at my request. Probably along with your input.

Also @6oliath , You can't force requests like these to be public since you expose names in some way in a public thread on a forum.
While this request is nowhere near sneaky, it does not feel good for me to post a large list of inactive Super Moderators here. I'm pretty sure you can understand this.

Anyway, it has been taken care of.

@Liv Where can I request deletion of inactive super mods of some Souls games we moderate? I would rather not make that a public request.

I havent seen any new mods actually. There were also no changes to the current list of Content Moderators on the "About" page from around when the Staff Applications thread started which holds an overview of staff members.

I agree with Timmi. You can't really acknowledge that you are giving an opinion anymore when you are saying: "Heck even the "new thread" box is shit as doesn't use the theme of the general site." That just looks rude to me.

Maybe you could try to be a little more respectful in what you are trying to say next time so your opinion is received in a better way, and even provide arguments instead of saying: "It really isn't that hard to implement something like markdown."

If you think so, then why not apply for administrator and help the coding out?

Sorry for a super late answer but, I line up a part of the black rock facing the wall, but I think you might want to look at the tutorial from Nemz38's Any% tutorial. He explains in depth what the visual cue is he is using. Can be found by just Youtubing Nemz38 Any% tutorial.

Thread: SCM2017 Feedback Thread

Started by: DaravaeDaravae

Just going to be honest and post everything that I have noticed before and during the event. I think most of this feedback can be traced back to a lack of time and preparation for the event, which makes it the more impressive what we came out with.

For being SCM's first event, I have to start very positive and say how impressed I am on how everything came out really. I think we nailed all the goals we originally had in mind and how the actual stream came together after just ~1 to 1.5 months of preparation is very impressive. We raised over 12000 dollars which is incredible for a first time and I don't think anybody would consider anywhere around this to be a realistic goal for being the first event.

[ Stream quality, content and features ]
+ The overall stream quality was very good for me. With quality i am purely thinking about how crisp everything looks on stream. I don't think I have watched a single run where I really thought: "OK this looks bad, pixelated or choppy". Even with downsized feeds on 2P and 4P it looked really good.
+ Overall content was really good. Varied amount of speedruns and challenges just made it a fun for me and never once did I felt bored or repetitive. Putting in a Nioh run and Die by the Sword run there was a nice touch and it blended it well with all the souls games. Someone said: "You should put up more different runs next to souls games". I don't agree with this, but I also think there is more room for more souls-like games if we would like. Keep it within the theme though.
+ Moobot commands seemed to work really well. Just the things we needed and nothing more.
- Some runners deciding to have face-cam on 2 player or 4 player feeds was sometimes abit strange and it felt like it was kind of out of place sometimes, yet it somehow still worked.

[ Tech ]
+ Really deserves a big plus for me. The way Dark-Aries and Darkfox stayed active during the majority of the marathon and helped everyone with any question or tech issue is just really impressive. Also Noobest had a big part in this even though he was not even officially tech, he was just in Discord most of the time of the event to help setting runners up. Zoton also made everything work with Speedcontrol in a very short time. This just shows the experience of these people in this event and was really the backbone that led this event to go smoothly on the back-end honestly and something we should definitely carry over to next year, if they are down ofcourse 🙂 What this also shows is that alot of people did multiple roles during the event and that is all the more better.

[ Scheduling ]
+ Great job in such a short time even though the time they had to create the actual schedule for the event was monkaS at some point.
- At some point during the event, we were ahead around 45 minutes of the schedule. The reason this was caused was probably because of the lack of time to properly review the runners estimates that have been put up. For next year, I think Scheduling will have alot more time to prepare these sorts of things and we can also review the estimates better.
- Incentives were put up really late in the event. I am not sure whether this was a lack of time or planning but we did make it work at the end. Next year,make sure we think of all the aspects in scheduling and also include incentives in these.
We should also make sure the runners have an option to post incentives themselves so its easier for Scheduling later to make a list.
- I ran into an issue that due to miscommunication that an incentive got put up that should not have been there really and we couldn't adjust it. Next year, ensure that everyone from Staff can access the dashboard to adjust this information.
The fact we made it work doesn't mean it was kind of annoying.

[ Hosting ]
+ Honestly, hosting during the event was really impressive. I think every Host nailed to set a professional tone and adjusted very quickly to the stream after a few hours. Not once did I felt like a Host got cut off by a runner or was not capable in general of reading the things he should have.
- Next year: We should also not forget to promote the (russian) restreams more.

[ Restreaming ]
+ I can't really say alot about this which is probably good. I feel like the downtime for switching restreamers was very minimal. I think the information relayed by Tech landed very well and I don't think anyone really had big questions regarding this.

[ Design ]
+ I think the end product of all the design came out really great. Making all the layouts was a time consuming task. Especially for being the first event, it was sometimes abit unclear about what should be put where which later added up on the time needed to make them. All by all, the layouts came out really clean and uncluttered and I felt like it really emphasized the souls theme we wanted to put out. Huge shoutout to TEOM for making a very clean logo for the t-shirts and Mette for the amazing panel designs. I think you guys made something great in such a short time.
- During intermission, Speedcontrol was the only dynamic aspect in that layout while the actual text and other elements in the intermission layout were kind of static. I think for next year it would be really nice to have a more dynamic Intermission layout so its just abit more interesting when intermissions also take longer.
- Due to a lack of time we were not really able to think of putting up the DbH t-shirt to promote during the intermission layout. I think this would be a nice feature to have there. As well as reserving a part for the incentives.
- About getting feedback: Its very important for a good design that it gets the feedback it needs. I feel like I often had to ask too much for feedback while this should really be a joined effort. Next year: lets make sure everyone takes a look at it and just gives some general feedback about what they like/dislike about it.

[ Information and event promotion ]
+ Promoting the event on social media seemed to be a success. Everyone seemed to be well aware of when and where the event was gonna take place.
- Centralizing information is something that we can work on next year. Have one central place where we store all of our content whether it is documentation, links, data, or anything really. For me, it was sometimes kind of a search where the information I wanted was.

Theres probably some stuff I forgot, but since this post is already long enough, I am gonna wrap it here.
Again, great job everyone. Its just all very minor stuff I think and I am already excited for next year since its gonna be even better!

Thread: All Souls Games Relay race

Started by: DaravaeDaravae

Hello everyone,

As you might have read or heard, the start of the Speedsouls for Charity marathon is closing in. Hype!

On the 3rd of December, we will end the marathon with a blast by hosting a big All Souls Games Relay Race starting around 2:30pm CET.

What is an All Souls Games Relay Race?
The All Souls Games Relay race is a race in which two teams face off where members of a team take turns completing Souls games. Once a member of a team finishes the run in one game, the next member in line will immediately continue with the next game in line and so on.
First team that succesfully finishes all Souls games wins the race!

Incentives:
Next to the regular incentives, there will also be incentives for the Relay Race. More on this soon!

Teams, Schedule and Routes:
The Relay Race schedule can be find below.

Thread: How to delete a unnecessary column on the boards?

Started by: DaravaeDaravae

Hey,

Maybe really simple but I couldnt find it:

We want to delete the column "Platform: PS4" on the Bloodborne leaderboards since PS4 is the only platform for that game anyway. (Its just unnecessary to have it show 20 times in a row in the LB for All Bosses for example).

Can anyone pinpoint me how to remove that specific column in the LB? We would like to keep it shown underneath the game information when you visit the page though.

Hello @Pac @Gyoo or any admin / full mod who could answer this question:

I am supermod for the Souls series and Editor for our own boards on Speedsouls.

We want to mirror our own hosted Leaderboard from the Souls series: (Dark Souls I, II, III, Bloodborne, Demon Souls) to the SR.com boards here.

The boards here are very outdated from some games which have low moderation and I was wondering if its possible if there is an easy way to get all runs (probably around 100+) from our boards imported to the ones here so we don't have to manually verify everything.

Is there in general a way how we could accomplish this?
