EarthBound Forum  /  Stopping timer, is this ok?

I have a kid and I can basically only stream after he goes to bed. If he wakes up in the middle of a run, is it ok if I pause the timer and tend to him so I can attempt to continue the run again if possible? Obviously as long as I split the video properly for submission. I don't know the etiquette so I need to ask.

I believe the proper procedure would be to leave the timer running, pause your game, and leave it go. The Glitchless category is single-segment, so you couldn't, say, load a save, and splicing two parts of a video together to leave out the gap would also be less than kosher.
