I have a couple questions/suggestions for the speedrunning leaderboard.

Could we add Another World Any% to the leaderboard? We could even split Puzzle Mode Any% into two subcategories if this would feel a bit more natural.

Also, while I understand the decision to allow all routes now for Any%, it also means even more available pathing is completely abandoned by the majority of speedrunners in this community.

In response to this, I'd like to propose that the Puzzle Mode Any% category be split into different route endings as well (with most of the current leaderboard falling under a hypothetical "? Route" subcategory). That way, we could potentially open up way more of the game from a competitive standpoint and theoretically set up a metric by which we could agree on rules for a 100% category.

Just a couple of thoughts I had. I definitely don't want to flood the leaderboards with categories that won't be run, but I'm all for adding stuff that will encourage more competition. Let me know what y'all think!

I would be in favor of an "Another World" category to mirror the Puzzle Bobble 2 (Arcade) board until we can properly set up a merged board.

As far as the subcategories by Route endings idea, I'm all for new ways to let people compete. But my main concern is board clutter and community interest. Might be something to propose in the Discord. If the interest is there, then I would further propose that a category not be created until someone(s) completes a run. A sticky'd thread specific to requesting new Ending categories could serve as the gathering point to post the video of completed run.
