Thread: Request platforms, to be part of series/game types

@Habreno Here are the images: https:/​/​imgur.​com/​a/​YZ4BoBl.​ Thanks for helping out! If we were to want RTA categories for running the games back to back, I imagine that would be requested as a category extension leaderboard?

@Habreno thanks ever so much! Discord invite would be http:/​/​discord.​gg/​6gGQqA3 and site page is http:/​/​htwins.​net/​.​
I will ask for a icon and logo on the discord. As for colours, I think #5B6DA7 for the panel, #cccfd4 for the panel border, #ebeff5 for the background and #f7d638 for everything else (like this: https:/​/​imgur.​com/​AngQOB7).​

@MeesterTweester its likely because its not a series per se but a collection of games by the same dev

Thread: Requesting series/game types for existing games

@Habreno sorry for the late reply. I know this is not where you request, I just wanted to gauge whether mods like you would agree with me or not before I submitted a request. By more details, not sure what you mean, but here's my point.
The dev, Carykh, made these games in flash, and they have similar ideas and art, and he posted them on his site HTwins.net. His brother helped out in some of them. There has been a community around carykh for a while, as he is also a YouTuber, and small communities formed around his games. This is why Goime 500 is so popular, being one of the largest flash games on the site. Before they even were on speedrun.com, people from the community (called HTC - htwins central) often played the games, and referred to them as 'Carelics', a portmanteau of 'Cary' and 'relics'. Cary himself has posted videos on his channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/carykh/search?query=carelics) of the games, most of which aren't on speedrun.com.
As more of them have been speedrun and added to speedrun.com (most recently Racing Extreme), I thought it would make sense to add them all in a singular series, as that is how people in the community treat them. I tried this a year ago but was rejected (There were less carelic games on the site back then). I think more and more of his games will be speedran and added to the site over time, so it makes sense to have a series. Also, up to this point, i have been made mod on the boards of the games as a sort of workaround, but that means I am the central pillar and places a lot of responsibility etc. on my end, which I think is unfair, especially as I might not be the mod holding everything together forever. Also, its not good to rely on one person for everything. Additionally, we have one discord server for all the games in the series (as well as a few fangames) so the community is already all in one place (Goime 500 also has its own seperate server as it is so big).
Also, there are already series' like the Nitrome series, where all the games are made by the same dev but are not part of the same universe, so there is a precedent.

The games (on speedrun.com right now) are:
- Goime 500
- BFDIA 5b
- Tidepool
- Racing Extreme

There has also been talk of adding more games such as Chompster, as people have run them already.
Finally, I wanted to say thanks for your help, sorry it was such a long read, but I truly think it would make things much easier to have them all in one series. I also understand I still have to request a series after this, but I really appreciate your feedback as it would be very helpful in formulating that request, and it's not something you have to do. Thanks!

Oh my god! As far as I remember you were the face of speedrun.com, but I understand it's a new era, and we have new mods and admins now who will improve the site off of your hard work. Thanks so much kirkq, I don't think the site, and the runners like me, would've got to where we are today without you. Good luck!

Thread: Requesting series/game types for existing games

Started by: Lighnat0rLighnat0r

Not sure if right place to ask but would it be possible to have a series page for games made by the same dev, but not in the same universe? Similar to the Nitrome series (https://www.speedrun.com/nitrome) but with less games. The games would be the 'Carelics' series, including Goime 500, BFDIA 5b, Tidepool, and Racing Extreme. May be useful to note that there are some other games in the series not on Speedrun.com. I am only asking because I was unsure if this would be accepted as a series or not.

@BlubbySpeedrunner I will make you mod after verifying your current runs, unfortunately they are timed wrong, as timer must stop when complete message pops up. I can't retime today so your runs will have to wait a bit longer, sorry

@BlubbySpeedrunner I can make you mod, I'm just waiting on Sebastian to be active, if he isn't alive by Monday I'll do my best to verify your runs. Sorry for the wait, he's much better at it than me.
If you submit like 10 runs or something I'll consider making you a mod, but tbh 3 runs isn't that much for me to do.
