Hello,
For 48- and 16-Track categories, runs faster than the following times must have video proof. For runs performed on Cartridge, add 1 minute to the time requirement of 48-Track runs and 20 seconds to 16-Track runs, to account for load differences.:
- 150cc:
48 tracks, no items: 1:51:00
48 tracks, items: 2:00:00
Nitro, no items: 39:00
Nitro, items: 42:00
Retro, no items: 36:30
Retro, items: 39:30
Bonus, no items: 36:00
Bonus, items: 39:00

- 200cc:
48 tracks, no items: 1:28:00
48 tracks, items: 1:34:00
Nitro, no items: 30:30
Nitro, items: 32:30
Retro, no items: 29:00
Retro, items: 31:00
Bonus, no items: 28:30
Bonus, items: 30:30
- For Cup categories, the top 5 times require video proof.

The Game & Category Rules for each category have been changed to reflect this.

These times were decided upon collectively by the mod team. All runs that were submitted before today are exempt from this and will remain on the leaderboards, including the runs from the last 3 weeks that were verified today (We are deeply sorry for allowing the submission pile to build up like that, and we will try our best to not have it happen again).

Thank you for apologizing! And the rule change makes sense.

oddpandemonium, what do you mean? i don't see how retimings could change with this rule.

You said that "For runs performed on Cartridge, add 1 minute to the time requirement of 48-Track runs and 20 seconds to 16-Track runs, to account for load differences." will you retime the runs that were submitted before the update?

oh, runs performed on cartridge should still be submitted with their actual recorded time. the threshold for proof for cartridge runs are a minute & 20 seconds slower for 48- and 16-track runs, respectively. that's all. hope that clears things up.
