Guys, I was the one who suggested comments on runs.

Needless to say, I don't think this is what I envisioned. Don't blame me lol.

Thread: The First Mod Hub Update: Runs Awaiting Verification

Started by: MetaMeta

In my opinion, when you click on a game in the moderation hub, it would be nice if the background shifted to that game's theme.

Kinda embarrassing. It's promoted so that it can gain runs/popularity for the game, but only has four runs. Maybe I can go get some easy wr

Thread: Leaderboards

Started by: DareDare

It's 10 and a half hours into 9/24 and the leaderboards aren't up. It would be kinda useful to know what categories are going to be available.

Not sure if it's a bug or not, but all runs say "ran 4 hours ago"

Thread: The First Mod Hub Update: Runs Awaiting Verification

Started by: MetaMeta

"The old page is still available" It's really not if I have to type in a long url for it. So from my understanding, the benefits are that you can separate by game, and you can see previously verified runs. That's nice and all but not worth the crazy and needless amount of space per run. This is an issue for games that receive lots of runs.

Thread: Mod Hub Hype

Started by: WalgreyWalgrey

(edited: )

The amount of space a single run takes up is now huge. Before I could take one look and be like, "oh, I don't have a lot of time right now so I can just pick this one that looks easier to verify". Now I have to scroll and scroll. Especially because now there seems to not even be any new information presented for each run? It's just bigger. Not sure how that's any benefit.
It would be nice if they could add a way mods could "flag" previously verified runs (in case there something wrong with them) and they could go back into the Moderation Hub in their own category, without actually taking the run down from the leaderboards.

@Cmessenger01Cmessenger01 also started a Morse code thread recently. The account was only made two weeks ago. Not sure if it's related.

Thread: hi, im out

Started by: UnusAnnusUnusAnnus

This person wanted us to guess who they are in another forum post. Another user "meme" (memer?) left earlier. A user "Kai." uploaded a post with the title "hi, im back" so that's like the same as this one. @KaiKai. even commented on the "meme" thread. Pretty easy guess. @MacOSXMacOSX wants us to figure out what account he deleted but he said it was ten letters so Idk if that's related.
The Morse doesn't seem to lead anywhere but it does translate. The audio probably needs a spectrogram. The google docs just seem to load forever to me. I'm guessing the audio has some better reference to whoever was running this.

Thread: Controversial suggestion(s)

Started by: HiHi

It would be nice to have different stages of being banned that a mod could apply to a person. If someone cheated but came clean you could apply a tag to said person that warns the mod that has to verify that person's runs in the future (if the community doesn't feel that person should be outright banned).

Thread: #FixSRC Boycott.

Started by: RiversideRiverside

There is a much easier way to break the top leaderboards without erasing anything. Game mods can set their url to one letter characters and then when their game is clicked on in the "all games" area, it takes the person to that profile. Not sure how that would accomplish much though.

Thread: Promoted Game on Games page

Started by: diggitydiggity

If them having promoted games is somehow good for the site because of financials or whatever, they should just auction off the top three-five slots in the games page for a weeks time or whatever and use the funds to better the site but something tells me they aren't gonna do that. There are a lot of people here whose livelihoods are actually tied to this site (big name speedstreamers on the popular games) so I think concern over something like this is certainly warranted. The fact that promoted games isn't explained/nonobtainable for the average person wreaks of nepotism. If they had a rotating community spotlight or something that could be cool.

What's up with user "0" (zero)? They signed up 8 months ago? I thought the 1 or 2 character thing was fixed a long time before than.
