@The_squerils_returnThe_squerils_return The magic of Unicode. I'll try the zero-width space below, which shouldn't show up even with highlighting text.

@GarshGarsh That's been brought up before: the consensus is that developing an app takes too many resources for too little gain, especially when the mobile website is an option (if not the best one). I believe there are unofficial apps on Android.

Read the rules carefully: if this is a "dumb science [web] game", I have doubts it'll be accepted.

Thread: what video sharing sites are allowed?

Started by: LenticularisLenticularis

As a moderator, Google Drive is a little concerning because it has limited storage space, so what if a runner eventually deletes their video? But that's not too likely, so I generally accept. That said, many runners in my experience who do submit Google Drive links forget to adjust their sharing settings for the file so anyone can view it without logging in to a Google Account, so I reject those runs and ask these runners to resubmit with this adjusted.

Thread: Beta speedruns?

Started by: TaruPantherTaruPanther

@MrMonshMrMonsh I know that for A Hat in Time, that leaderboard exists because people began speedrunning the game while it was in beta.

I would also expect betas to be misc. categories under the main leaderboard.

Thread: Timing based on video: how do you check timing frame by frame accurately?

Started by: wawawiwa1wawawiwa1

SPRT is super convenient but I've found it can be inaccurate if your video buffers as you're trying to find the right frame. If you care about being as precise as possible, downloading videos is the way to go (or just using SPRT slowly).

Always check the game and category rules for the game you wish to run, but in most cases you do not need a timer.
Downloading from the original website of the software is safe if the software is safe--I can personally vouch for the safety of this page if you want LiveSplit. That said, if you're sure you don't want to download anything, you can always use LiveSplit One, which runs in your browser, no downloads required.

Thread: Wikipedia Leaderboard?

Started by: baselayerbaselayer

As fun as Wikipedia speedrunning might be (I assume you mean something like getting from one article to another with hyperlinks only), not only is it impossible to standardize, but it won't be accepted on this site. As the game request rules state, "non-video-game activities" will not be accepted, and Wikipedia isn't a game.

Thread: My runs arent appearing.

This is a known issue, which is why the site currently states "Note: newly submitted or approved runs may take a few minutes to appear. Thanks for your patience!" at the bottom of all leaderboards.

By the way, you can use Google search as a replacement search; just type site:speedrun.com at the end of your search in Google.

I don't believe so, but you could always copy that information and paste it in the run comments of the replacement runs.

@FutureGamesFutureGames Certain sites (think Newgrounds, etc.) use Flash emulators, so you can use Flash games.

@Pizza_PoohzPizza_Poohz You'll have to make them yourself. Spriter's Resource is a good place to start.

On the front page, information is formatted to stay at the top of their boxes (if boxes extend past a single line, for instance). All except for the date of the run, that is.

This inconsistency should be fixed.

Thread: User pronouns - Any/All and Specify field

Started by: AurideAuride

@HakoHako , they're distinct. I suggest you do some reading on the topic, but in short, the point of choosing pronouns is to use what feels comfortable, and they/them doesn't feel comfortable for some individuals. (They/them is popular in comparison to other neopronouns, so it's understandable to not be familiar.)

Keep in mind that for all games with sane rules, the LiveSplit timer is just for show, and not what determines your leaderboard time. Otherwise, timer cheating would be rampant.

I kinda wish the new trophy was a little more rounded at the top, it's too pointy for my tastes.

Thread: timing quetion

Started by: FOXTHECOOKIEFOXTHECOOKIE

@DarkJohnnyBravoDarkJohnnyBravo The in-game timer is the timer which shows in-game after the credits. That is not the timing used for this leaderboard.
