I have a question regarding a board that I currently moderate. The TMNT Tournament Fighters board desperately needs to be separated into 3 distinct boards, since all 3 games play very differently and shouldn't be categorized together in any fashion. However, I've never tried to create new games before, so I could really use some assistance from a site moderator.

Is there anyone that could provide me some assistance? If so, thanks so much in advance!

Ask one of the two series mods to make those as separate entries rather than having it as one game.

Instead of creating 3 boards, have you considered adding a variable to the categories that allows you to choose the platform? An example can be seen here https://www.speedrun.com/khfmhd where there is a variable for PS3 and PS4 since the two consoles aren't comparable for that game due to loading differences.

You could do that for the 3 consoles for your game to split them up without having to create three individual games and boards for them.

Just an idea I figured I'd throw out.

It's the same game on three consoles, and the three consoles have their own categories already to reflect discrepancies in consoles?

In any case, I'd imagine you'd have to request two new games and a series; assuming that gets accepted, you'd then have to resubmit records off the original page (except the ones pertaining to that console you are going to use the original page for) to the other two pages, and then delete them off the original page. Or something along those lines.

Looking at a bit more, I can see the case for seperation:

NES:
"The game's single-player Story mode has the player taking control of one of the four Turtles (Leonardo, Raphael, Michaelangelo, and Donatello), as they hold a contest amongst themselves to see who is fit to take on Shredder's challenge. After defeating the first three opponents, the player proceeds to fight Casey Jones and then Hothead (a character based on the Dragon Warrior from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures comics and the action figure of the same name) before the final match with the Shredder."

SNES:
"The SNES version of Tournament Fighters is sometimes sold under the unofficial title Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles V: Tournament Fighters[1] in order to continue the numbering from the earlier Turtles games released on the Nintendo Entertainment System as well as the Super NES, and is often considered by fans as the last game in the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series.

In addition to the main and versus modes, there is a story mode in which the Turtles must rescue April O'Neil and Splinter from Shredder's clutches. The Turtles must travel across the US in their Turtle Blimp, defeating other fighters and collecting information. Only the four of them can be playable whereas the other characters (as well as a turtle clone) are the opponents. There is no Mutagen Meter in story mode. There is also a watch mode, which features computer controlled characters.
There are ten characters available, and two bosses.

Genesis:
The game has eight playable characters, which includes the four Turtles and Casey Jones, as well as April O'Neil (whose active role differs from the versions of the character featured in other games), Ray Fillet (a character from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures comics), and Sisyphus (an original character, named Musha Beetle in the Japanese version). The player can adjust their power and speed after selecting their character...

The main single player mode features the turtles and their allies traveling to various planets in Dimension X, fighting against clones of themselves, as they seek to rescue Splinter from Krang. After defeating the eight clones, the player travel to the final three stages to fight against a Triceraton, Krang's Android, and Karai (in that order). The game has a two player mode, as well as a practice mode in which the player faces the computer in a 1-round match, and a "Tournament" where the player must defeat 88 opponents with one life gauge."


That seems like different games to me, in the way The Smurfs (GBA) and The Smurfs (Genesis) are different games. So yeah, I didn't realize a series already existed for the game. Contact the moderator as KomradeKontroll suggested, and you should be able to get that fixed.

My logic for this was "If Battletoads NES and MegaDrive can have separate game pages, than this definitely should."

Looks like I should do what others have been stating: contact whitman_price_ (the series mod). He's been sparse lately, so wish me luck! Thanks for all of the advice!
