When creating new values for variables in extra variables/subcategories, if a value name is inputted and the mouse is clicked outside the text box, a dialog appears with "26086" and an OK button. Clicking OK creates the variable as usual. Appears on both Firefox and Chrome.
Didn't work with other options I tried. That was an interesting find.


@Quivico did you double check with the api to see if that might be the variable's id?
it being given on variable creation would be great QoL as you don't need to search the API for it.


@HowDenKing I'm no coder so I wouldn't know by any means, but the code seemed to call it a "data-variable", so it seems so or similar. It changes by specific variable and not when adding new values. Does sound convenient for those who know what they're doing.


If you edit a run and, say, only change the description, the run goes back into 'awaiting verification' status. I consider this to be a bug. If the video source and time stay the same, it should be auto-verified to avoid giving the mods extra work.


@Bradenbest Run-Specific information could be in the description, or image proof.
the description putting it back in queue is compeltely intentional and good this way.

I recently created a new leaderboard: https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​fexl

Despite submitting a run to test the leaderboard out (, Arcade Mode - Easy still shows "There are no runs." by default.

However, when applying the following filters, my run shows up:
Character - Skullomania
Gougi - Nightmare

Now, the interesting thing is that when I remove those filters and change Character/Gougi back to "Any", my run still shows up!

However, refreshing the page shows "There are no runs." again.


@AufWiedersehen in your Extra variables/subcategories section for Gougi you need to have all boxes in the value section to be checked off default

So when you have a variable with a default applied to a leaderboard, the settings say that the board is filtered to that value by default:

But then the highlighting on the leaderboard makes it look like the board is unfiltered by default:

(Note that for Super Metroid specifically, we're currently debating whether to leave a default active for this variable)

Not getting notifications for games that I'm following. I have notifications for every aspect of Choppy Orc, there's been multiple runs verified in the past 36 hours and I haven't gotten notifications for new PBs. Same goes for new WRs

When submitting to a marathon, selecting a game from the autocomplete menu takes you to the game page rather than filling in the form, making marathon submission difficult. It is still possible to select the game with the arrow keys and tab.


@TempystralTempystral Workaround for now is typing out the exact game name and pressing enter in the same field rather than clicking in the search game popup.

The "Audit Log" page seems to be quite broken now. Not sure if this was because of the layout changes, but I'm assuming so. The list view seems to straight up not work, all it does is change the results per page, the content is still shown in a grid. In addition, and I'm not sure if this was the case before, but the "context" part is shown inside a <pre> tag. This works fine for most things, but with lengthy forum posts or run descriptions it causes the text to go way outside the main container and creates a huge horizontal scrollbar. This makes it pretty much impossible to read. It also seems that due to the way the information is stored it doesn't even take into account the newlines that are actually present in the post/description (they are displayed as "/r/n" instead).

Edit: Seems that the same problem is present on the "Streams" page (as mentioned here https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​The_Site/​thread/​c0en0/​10#4wask ) and also "All Games". So pretty much anywhere you can toggle between grid- and listview.


Sorry for the double post, but this is a separate issue. Displaying/rendering the content on a series pages (like https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​10_second_ninja ) takes way too long now. I’m not sure what is going on, but I ran it through the performance tool in the Chrome. It consistently takes around 30 seconds to render on my computer.

This is after page load btw, so a client side problem (i.e. your mileage might vary). Tried to investigate a bit what the cause might be, but I didn't really find out much. It just does a lot of recalculation of style, and that seems to be what is taking up the most time.

Edit: One more oddity on the page that might help explain what is going on. When it first loads the body tag is nearly 300 000 pixels tall for some reason. Also the same problems seem to be present on https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​games (I'm assuming it is using pretty much the same code)

So, the default value of "Game type" on a series page has changed with the new visual update. Previously mobile and hidden games (e.g. category extension boards) were hidden by default in series pages where as now they are shown by default. Unsure if this was an intended change or not with the new update.
