Forums  /  The Site  /  Request leaderboard moderation (Read the first post before posting!) (Locked)

Hello, we were fixing the subway surfers boards and we were going to ask an inactive super mod if he was ok with us removing him from the list but the only way to talk to him is through steam and to talk on steam you have to be friends with the person.
its been weeks now, hes gone online multiple times and he hasn't accepted my friend request.

@ZOMandKatgarrZOMandKatgarr I will talk to the current moderators of the leaderboard regarding the situation.

@genesisprobegenesisprobe The current supermod isn't considered as inactive (last online 10 days ago). I'll try get in contact with the current supermod about your request.

@hsbluehsblue Could you please state who you request to be removed as moderator? There are currently 2 super moderators on the leaderboard.

@bluerapids12bluerapids12 Moderator inactive for 3 months without any contacts and you have a pending run; added.

@SeydieSeydie Myself and Midge, a supermod on the other two reboot games, have spent over a month trying to get in contact with Doppie, but to no avail.


Hey i am Speedrunnig One Strike and my WR Run is pending for over 2 weeks without any response. Could i maybe get mod for this category ? Thank you for you time and have a nice day.


@DerOnkelMoritzDerOnkelMoritz @FroggyIL isn't inactive (the threshold is 21+ days) and he's active on twitter. Reach out to them, even if you don't use twitter you have to make an effort to try.


Hello. I am requesting the moderator (or super moderator) role for the NES game Baseball Stars. The lone moderator for the game currently doesn't play and seems to be rather overwhelmed currently. We (myself and a few others) have a few runs (Including a world record) that have been waiting for approval for up to a month.

If given the role, I would update the games leaderboards to reflect modern changes in the run. I would be glad to answer more questions on that statement in more detail, but I dodn't want to bombard this thread with otherwise meaningless data.

Thank you for your time!

Hello, I am requesting the moderator role for the NES game Little League Baseball: Championship Series. I have been unable to contact the current moderator and have 3 runs pending for over 21 days (including a new record) that have not been approved. He has not logged in for a couple of months.

I am highly familiar with the game and the gameplay itself and could explain anything in detail if needed.



Hello I would like to request moderation
For the game Nioh

Current Moderator Simoteus is very active
But he is alone there

I have many friends willing to run the game

I would like to do a nice job
for this game

So my post was ignored so I will repost my thread post again. So I have been told to lay off moderator request back in May. The problem was that I had a pending run in all 4 Rolling Hero games. So I decided to wait for a couple of months to request moderator for those game due to inactive moderator. Now I believe that is been long enough since then I would like to request the moderator for all 4 of the Rolling Hero games. I have runs Pending for 4 months on all 4 games. Here is the link to the games https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​rh4 https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​rh3 and https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​rh1 I would also like to request series mod if may too. Here's the link to the series https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​rhseries

@genesisprobegenesisprobe I am actually active and reachable through Discord and Twitch. I do have Midge on my Discord friendlist but he never spoke to me about that. Makeal (I suppose he was the previous super mod of the series) had reached me multiple times without issues.

hello so 2 things, 1 i had a series request rejected for not being enough activity within it https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​mario_fan_games, i believe this is changed recently, and i do believe this series could beneift with an addition of a moderator, i moderate in 2 games within this series and i'm confident i can make a difference in a positive way too this series
2. i've had a run pending in fun raiser first submitted early june https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​Fun_Raiser/​full_game, the current moderator has been last online 8 months ago, i have been trying really hard not to make this into a mod request but his discord link is expired and i have recieved no responce via the forums or youtube, i've tried giving him some time too see if he is gonna log back online but taking into account his account age and time offline i dont think he's coming back anytime soon, i understand this game might not be very moderator neccessary due to popularity but for a few other reasons i think otherwise, the timing should be time ascending and any% should be renamed too survive%, the current mod is offline, so i understand if replacing this moderator isn't super neccessary but i would love my run on this board

Thank You

@SchmidttyGamesSchmidttyGames Moderator was online 5 days ago. Did you try and reach out to this moderator yourself and explain the situation? If so, provide some concrete evidence if possible, as this user has multiple socials linked and seems to have been active recently on most of them.

@AngryIrishsnakeAngryIrishsnake That is fine, but you don't have MFA enabled, which is a requirement to add people as moderator to the boards. Please enable this in your settings and get back to us when done.

@VictorKratosVictorKratos Simoteus is active, take your mod request up with him.

@afnannen136afnannen136 We are going to decline your series request mod. Reasons: the arguments you listed are not sufficient right now. We are going to be extremely strict from this point when it comes to adding series moderators. Also, I don't agree with something silly like renaming Any% to "Survive%" for any leaderboard. Please don't do that.

so is that a no on the game ?

@DaravaeDaravae I'm not doing this as a dig on RantronBomb, as I'm sure they are very busy in life and is a Super Mod for numerous games as it is. RantronBomb has also been a very good mod for a very long time and I have no problem with them. However, the Baseball Stars community saw one run out of at least four approved in the last month and Baseball Stars is looking to rise in popularity. World records are being broken, new categories are being thought up, and the community needs an active representative rather badly. Even if it isn't me, I still ask that you install a second overlord in Baseball Stars to help ease the burden on our lone moderator.


@SchmidttyGamesSchmidttyGames Its not about it being a dig or not. This is about you reaching out to Rantron himself and explaining the situation. Users are considered inactive if they havent logged in for 30 days, in which this is not the case here. I am going to repeat myself: This thread is "last resort". That means we require users to make a substantial effort to reach out to moderators themselves to resolve their issues or requests before posting here. Right now, I cannot find any feedback that this has been done so from your end.

Just in case users forgot when they post here

1. Read the first post. All requirements are in there. If requirements to post here are not met; your request will not be considered. Please make a substantial effort to reach out to users yourself. Site staff is not here to hold your hand in that process. If you are unable to do so, your request will not be considered.
2. That also means enabling MFA. We often run into users posting here that do not have MFA enabled. Please do not forget this as otherwise your request will not be considered.

Not a direct rule in the first post but:
3. We are going to be extremely strict with Series moderation. The answer often going to be no. If the argument is: "Can I be a series mod?" but no arguments are listed, your request will not be considered.

@DaravaeDaravae I have enabled MFA. Also thank you for the quick reply to the message. Let me know if you need anything else.

Requesting mod for Samurai Shodown. I submitted a run for the Game Boy version a month ago, hasn't been approved. The game has two mods, one was last active 10 months ago, the other was last active one year ago. Board is basically abandoned.

Hello, I sent about 5 races for 2 games ( https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​stronghold_legends and https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​stronghold2 ) I waited three weeks and wrote to Discord, already a former moderator ( https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​user/​Boomer ) and asked if he would consider the races, after which he said he would. The next day, he removed the moderation from three of these games. In Stronghold Legends there is a moderator who has not been online for a year ( https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​user/​Old_Tree/​info ), and in Stronghold 2 there are two moderators who have not been in the year, one of them is the same ( https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​user/​Old_Tree/​info and https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​user/​jurgen/​info ).
Please make four games moderator ( https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​stronghold2,, https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​stronghold3 and https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​sce ).
In this game ( https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​sce ) a moderator ( https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​user/​Boomer ), which, as we already know, will not consider races, if submitted, wait 3 weeks and write to him. Thanks in advance.
p.s. I apologize for the errors, the text was made in the translator.
