Hello, me and a friend submitted a run on Never Split the Party (https://www.speedrun.com/Never_Split_The_Party) 3 weeks ago. We contacted the moderator on Twitch but he didnt answer yet. Thanks for the help!

Hi, I manage the leaderboards for https://www.speedrun.com/st (supertux) and one mod, AD2 is quite inactive. As he is a super mod we cant remove him. He hasn't run the game in about 2 years and does nothing to verify runs. He is also not even on our tux community discord. Frankly, he is clutter to our mod list. Not to mention, he is a mod for about 15 other games, so I doubt he'd have time to bother with supertux anyway. I once asked him on a stream a few months ago if he would consider coming back to supertux, and it doesnt seem he even remembered what supertux was.

Thank you for your time 🙂

I would like to confirm that what @OscillatingOcelot is saying is totally correct. He doesn't participate in any matters regarding board moderation and doesn't even answer on it when you DM him. I doubt he'll be to any help. It can be good to remove mods who doesn't moderate nor participate in questions.

@OscillatingOcelot @UbuntuJackson I agree, he's been away from supertux speedruns since quite a time ago.

@OscillatingOcelot This moderator was active 5 days ago and has lots of socials listed. Have you and your team in any way tried to reach out to this moderator to ask to unmod himself before coming here and asking for him to get removed? This thread is always last resort. Also for next time, try and keep this thread as clean as possible. No need for the entire moderator team to post their acknowledgement each in a seperate post.

@Firesorrow Seems fair. Added.

@Daravae I have messaged him and asked him politely about exactly that. It's better modding people that least are ready to do what mods do for a board.
I will ask him another time on Twitter as well.

@Daravae He's not been in contact with the efforts made. I know other people of my mod team have tried as well. He is very inactive on all of his socials, and barely ever comes on discord too. His last twitter post was 3 months ago, and it doesn't even seem he streams often anymore. He cannot be reached.

Also, I apologise for the mod team spam. That was unintentional.

@Daravae hi you seem to have skipped me, so ill repost

hello, me and my friend (Zombie1Kenobi) just did a run for a small game we found called Effing Worms - Xmas and have both submitted our runs, however i have now realized both mods have not been active on speedrun.com for 5/6 months, so i don't think our runs will get verified, is there any way me and him can be made super mods of the game? thanks for any help! 🙂

@UbuntuJackson @OscillatingOcelot I will await what comes out your efforts of reaching out to this moderator. Be sure to get back to me either way.

@UntrainedTurtle Have you actually tried to reach out to any of these moderators to talk about this? Also, this is a thread to "become a moderator" from which there are plenty for each game now. Should be rather easy reaching out to them. Actually, I am not quite sure what your expectations are coming here and posting this in the first place.

@videogamemaster22 Apologies, this thread can get quite busy sometimes. Easy to miss a thing or two. Both of these moderators have some socials listed, have you tried reaching out to these moderators through these in any way?

hi so i've had a run pending for Ninja Pinter for a little over 3 weeks now, i have tried contacting the mods to verify my runs but none of them are active, only 1/4 of them have a discord linked to their speedrun.com and when i try to contact him on discord it shows me their is no such user, could i become a moderator of ninja painter so i can verify my run

@manticor5 Okay, I haven't gotten a reply back from Shiko, and it looks like he used twitter after I sent my message, so since you have a run pending, added.

@Cytruss Seems fine, added.

@afnannen136 Could you by chance crop these videos properly before I add you? It's a 30 minute VOD segment for a 3 minute and 7 minute run.

@afnannen136 The actual videos submitted for your runs aren't cropped to be the runs, if that makes sense. So you've submitted 2 runs totalling approx 11 minutes, but the actual video for both is approx 30 minutes.

@videogamemaster22 I personally think this is fine, they've both been offline for 5 and 6 months, and neither actually have a run of the game in question. Added.

@Liv my video is as long as it is because a full run of the game can be seperated into 3 parts and submitted to 3 different categories.not including any%.
i was attempting to do an any% run but couldn't complete it. my any% attempt is still applicable for 2 other categories. the video contains for the first 3ish minutes the first category and from after that point to about the 10 minute mark is me doing the second category and for the rest of the 21 minutes i spend attempting but failing any%/ the thrid category

it was submitted as a recording to twitch so theirs no way for me to highlight it. i have already delted the file from my computer.
the best i can do is really give a timestamp of when the run of that category starts, unless you or anyone else knows what to do
