Hey everyone, we’ve got a second round of moderation features for the recently released comments sections. Let’s dig into the details.
Comments Permission Levels
Game Moderators (both Super Mods & Regular Mods) can choose a setting for run comments on their game:
- Allow comments on runs
- Allow comments from users with a verified run (in any game)
- Allow comments from users with a verified run (in this game)
- Disable comments on runs for this game
These new comments permission level options can be found underneath “Edit Game” for Game Moderators only.
Individual Run Comments Controls
- Authors (Runners) or Game Moderators can lock comments sections, preventing new comments from being posted but leaving old ones in place
- Authors (Runners) or Game Moderators can disable comments sections, preventing new comments from being posted and wiping existing comments
These new run specific options can be found underneath any run, so long as you are a speedrunner who contributed to the run (even co-operative speedrunners) or a Game Moderator on the associated leaderboard.
Please note that a generous sweep has been done from the side of the database to target the primary spammers (as well as alternative accounts), removing more than 99.5% of spammy or abusive comments.
Thank you for your patience, please don't hesitate to submit a ticket to the Support Hub if you have any further concerns or feedback with anything about Speedrun.com
