Thread: Request leaderboard moderation (Read the first post before posting!)

Started by: lewisandsparklewisandspark

I would like to request the removal of the Super Mod Zutara2012 from the game Meeblings, as he has not logged into this site in 4 years.

I would also like to request Super Mod on SEUM: Speedrunners from Hell, as there are currently no Super Mods.

Thank you!

Thread: we_aver trying to cheat leaderboards as Super Mod

Started by: StarStar

Hey, 4 days ago an (inactive) runner by the name of we_aver posted a 1-second run into a game called Mandagon. He was the initial creator of the game, later giving me Super Mod (as he only did 1-2 runs per category and didn't touch it again), but not resigning himself.

Here is the run (which I have since gone in and rejected after he manually verified the run himself with no input from me or madinsane):
https://www.speedrun.com/Mandagon/run/zx4ge2ky

I'd like to request that he be removed as Super Mod for Mandigon, as he hasn't run the game since his first runs when he created it 2 years ago, he has not been active in the community whatsoever (he's not even in the Discord for the game, which is the only place we communicate), and is clearly untrustworthy, trying to sneak in a 1st place run hoping that nobody else would catch it.

Since he's so detached from the game (and sr.com overall) and is clearly untrustworthy, I am slightly worried he might attempt to sabotage the leaderboards by deleting all runs/deleting the theme that I spent a while working on.

Thanks!

@PackSciences

That's fair, I suppose, but I just feel like it'd be much better to get in touch with the moderator, rather then make a fake run that he knows might not get deleted if the moderator is inactive. I have 5 valid means of communication on my profile, all of which I check regularly. (And if the moderator ¤is¤ inactive/he can't get in contact with them, then he should be submitting a moderation request on the forums).

And thank you haha, I drew it like 2 years ago when I was really into art lmao

Hey folks,

Someone ( https://www.speedrun.com/user/ChocolateTheGaming ) just submitted this run ( https://www.speedrun.com/run/yw1k973z ) to a game that I moderate (which has no run verification).

Now, I can easily delete it (and I did), but with a 1 second time and no video requirement, he clearly is trying to abuse abandoned games in order to get WRs on his account.

Is it possible for someone to warn him or otherwise punish him for doing this so he doesn't continue? Thanks.

EDIT: Just want to clarify, I don't want him banned or anything. From the looks of his profile this is a one-off thing. But a warning would be nice just to make sure he doesn't try it again in the future.

You guys don't even run. Why do you want mod of this game? I at least want to actually make the place look nice (see what I did to http://www.speedrun.com/Mandagon ).

Thread: Backup of Old Leaderboards?

Started by: StarStar

Hey,

I ran a few years ago, when we used the Wiki for a leaderboard. I can't seem to locate them anymore though, is there just an archived version? I'd like to see what my PBs were, and that's the only place I had them.

Hey,

The mod for How Does Into Game is pulling some shady stuff.

He submitted a WR without video evidence (5 months after my WR run, which had video evidence).

I made a forum thread asking if this was allowed (http://www.speedrun.com/The_Site/thread/d7fl4) and someone posted a run (WR, without video evidence, it has since been removed by the person) just to see how the Mod would react. The run was accepted, then not much later (According to my email, just under an hour) the Mod added another WR run, again without video evidence.

This is very shady, and as others stated in the thread linked, he shouldn't be repetitively adding WR runs without any proof, as a Mod. I'd like to request that he be removed and someone more fit to moderate the game be replaced (I don't care if it's me or someone else; just someone who is fair).

Thread: Can He Do That?

Hey,

I ran a game (How Does Into Game) about 5 months ago, with video proof. There were no runs of it, so my run was the only one.

Last night the mod added a run that was about a minute faster than my run of himself, with no video proof or comment. He just claimed he got faster than me.

Is this allowed? I feel kinda gypped out of my 1st place, since he didn't submit any proof that he completed it in said time (no screenshot of the splits or anything)

Here's the game/category

@Racingmonster, I'm 17, no car, and don't speedrun any of the games (or type of game) that you speedrun... not to mention that was quite off topic. Hit me up on Twitter or Twitch if you wanna talk.

Nice run, but can you credit me for making the map? Stealing it without crediting is plagiarism 😛

I'm looking into working on the auto-splitter, but I don't have much of a clue in what i'm doing either. We'll see where this goes ¤shrugs¤

If you use LiveSplit(which you should, I ¤think¤ it's supported by mac), it's a built in function. Someone would need to code it though, which could be tedious.

The issue is, forcing users to manually cut out load times really can cut down on the number of people who want to run. It really can be a pain to re-time and cut out loads.

Also, @1NUN

The issue with starting in the main area, is that's not the start of the game. I haven't seen a single game where they start in the middle of the game. The only thing that is sometimes not included in timing is cut scenes, which the first section doesn't really count as.
