Today, we're launching an updated user settings page. Our development team has worked hard in this area to increase user security and rebuild the site infrastructure in this area to set a foundation for exciting things to come! Before we dig in, I’d like to give a personal big thanks to the closed beta testers who helped us polish this release:
You were all a massive help in creating a smooth launch of this update, and we look forward to more beta tests for future updates!
On top of rebuilding the settings page from the ground up to create a better foundation for future projects, it now has a few security improvements, some clarification around the purpose of many settings, better organization to find important settings, and a fresh coat of paint to boot!
I won’t dive into the nitty gritty details of everything that was changed around, tweaked, or added because it's a lot of small things — but I encourage you to check it out and see everything new for yourself!
If you’d like to discuss the new settings page, I’ve created a new thread here just for that purpose! We'll monitor it for the next couple of days before locking the thread and asking everyone to take their user settings related bug reports and feedback over to the Support Hub!

We’re excited for the future of Speedrun.com, as we continue to rebuild the infrastructure of the site and are able to create bigger and better things to improve the user experience whether you’re a moderator, a speedrunner, or an audience member.
