Hey, the sole mod for the Watchmen series, and both games, has been inactive for over two years. I have submitted runs for both categories of Part 1 and I'll be running Part 2 in the near future. If it's not too much trouble, I'd like super on the series and both games.

@Daravae I wasn't aware Stew_ had already contacted about this issue when I wrote here. But I really appreciate it.

This is more of an administration question, but is there a way to regain some times off of lost categories? One of the other Lego Star Wars (The Complete Saga) Moderators went nuts and deleted 7 different miscellaneous categories. The rest of the community and I were going to branch off and host these times somewhere else, but we don't have access to the history anymore (tried wayback machine, failed). Any chance we could have those back from I believe less than 24 hours ago?

Hi there. I would like to become a mod for Ecco Jr. Submitted a run 2 weeks ago and mod has been inactive for 3 months. I also have been making guides for Ecco Jr. so I think I'd be valuable for the game. I know another user Killentity also has a run pending on Ecco Jr.

WARNING: Wall text incoming

Ok all, normally I don't enter this forum, but being a member of the DKC community, it was noticed that some people have requested for a time that was removed to be reinstated.

To start, the time removal wasn't due cheating or dubious gameplay. It is known for a fact that said runner never cheated on his runs. However, the removal of his time is due a different story which should've been discussed beforehand (and is something as a community is a mistake that happened).

I'm only the messenger, therefore I'm only giving an info that comes from not being at the event where everything happened and having the learn about everything after it occurred.

So, for those who don't know, Stew_ was banned from AGDQ2019. People reported him committing harassment to other members of the DKC community, which knowing the ones affected I can only trust them that everything is legit.

(For anyone who wants to read about everything, there is a Google Docs that compiles everything: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ANVBR593bb0ofQmt0WrEsjriHkEJHCoHXkjf_S5WwG8/edit )

Fast forward to the last weekend. Stew legally got WR in DKC3 103%, which brought up the discussion if he should or not be allowed to post times to the LBs (again, that discussion should've been when GDQ ban happened, but that is something we can discuss other day). After long 3 days discussion, the community decided that the runner would have his name redacted and requested raw gameplay to be provided. One of the community mods (who, same as me, didn't attend AGDQ2019, therefor, was neutral to everything), was the middle man between the community decision and Stew. He denied and decline the request and community decision. Therefor his times were removed as no agreement between the parts could be reached.

I hope this explains the situation of Stew's times. I'm not a mod, but I've been an active member of the community for a while now (I could say about 3 years), therefor I know anything that is being discussed and community decisions.

I won't get into arguments that if the leaderboards are a public space or not, but in my opinion sr.c provide communities a space to have a leaderboard without going into a hassle of creating one from scratch, but anything is a decision of each game's community, therefore that one should be respected.

Edit: minor edit cause somehow when clicking on the link it adds the ) in the end, providing errors. 🤦🏻‍♂️
Edit 2: minor vocabulary change cause reasons

@roushmore Regarding deleted categories; unfortunately if a category is totally wiped then all the runs are also gone along with it. There is a rollback process, but at the moment it is a very manual process that requires Admin w/ Code Access intervention, which we are hoping changes in the future at some point. That said, under these conditions it is unrealistic for us to be able to rollback every issue that occurs on a leaderboard, so unfortunately right now, your best bet is to either contact an Admin or try work towards restoring those categories / runs yourself between the mods.

@mitjitsu Have you tried to contact the current mod before making this request? Just looking at his twitter, he was active just today on it and I would guess it is the same case for his other medias.

@NotJohn You don't appear to have a current run in this game (https://www.speedrun.com/fate-extella-link/full_game) / pending on my end, and we aren't currently looking to really instate mods who have neither simply for the sake of it.

@cheekychunk Since you look to have a pending run, the current mod has been offline for several months / has some broken contacts, okay.

@The_IL_Guy Heard nothing back from the mod after a week, and they appear to have used twitter since, so since you have a pending run I've added you.

Hello, I ask about removing Miko ( https://www.speedrun.com/user/Miko/info ) from moderators team of the game "American McGee's Alice" ( https://www.speedrun.com/alice ), because he has been inactive for 4 years.
There are 3 other moderators for this game, excluding him, so all will be fine without him, I guess.

Hello @Liv , I just wanted to know if you had any news of TripleStacks on Twitter for https://www.speedrun.com/Rider_Mobile , just to see if I can submit my currently waiting runs or if I still have to wait a few more days 😉

Hello, I'd like to become a moderator for The Lost World: Jurassic Park (PS1/Saturn) as I've submitted a WR run since 3 weeks, the only moderator is offline since 2 months and I have no ways to contact him.

Not sure if this is where this belongs or not, but I could not find a better place to put it, and creating a new thread just for this problem that has arisen seems silly to me.

About two to three weeks ago, I made a request to be a moderator for the Hexcells Infinite game. Since then, one of the inactive mods has come back and made comments on several of the forum posts that I made at that time about a month ago.

Since I'm still somewhat new to this site, what exactly happens now at this point?

Furthermore, what should I do if the other S-Mod comes back and removes my current S-Mod status?

@Liv

Thanks in advance for the response!

Super mod cannot remove another one unless they ask a site staff, generally the ones who have been responding to board moderation changes to the requests would be the ones who have to be asked about it in the first place. If the reason a Super mod was replaced by inactivity or lack of then there should be no reason for them to create a fuss to begin with since they are not active in doing moderation to begin with.

@ankaid Allright, done.

@Tromboncino Current mod is indeed offline for 2 months and has no socials. Added.

@Razorflame Super mods cannot remove other Super Mods. They can only add other mods.

@FlamingEagle_Legends Please forward your request to the game moderators first of Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle since this thread is basically serves as last resort.
Also, add a couple of more social links to your profile.

I second this as a super mod on GTA:Online, we wish to remove him to introduce other mods into the GTA:Online community who can help with verifying the runs
