Go by each games/categories rules. Power Vacuum was recently banned.

Since my post was cited here. My position was primarily addressing "joke runs", and possibly "afk player(s)" The rest of the items mentioned here are the moderators' current discretion, which I don't necessarily totally agree or disagree with.

What if a run is the highest quality you can make it, but isn't up to the standards. Will it still be accepted?

@Pixels We generally accept any runs that are in the range of decent to great quality. If the video is skipping/cuts etc. we will not verify it. Specifically though we'd have to see the run in question and go from there.

Not a mod, but usually I would stream it and save the stream on a computer in which you can overlay a timer and send it off to youtube, or if you're lazy like me then I would use a real life timer in which you time yourself, making sure that you're time is right based by looking back at yourself on the stream, adjust the time if it seems off.

I understand this isn't my job as I'm not a mod but just wanted to help :]

I have a question, what if you put All Gobblegums on your speedrun but never actually use any gobblegums? Would it get rejected if you put it in there?

You must use gums in an all gum run otherwise, its a no gum run

I have no idea how to use an overlay on a computer or anything like that so my question is, would I be able to do a run and then run it back in theatre mode? Since it has a time.

Corpus Christi, TX, USA

I was wondering the same thing as this guy, I am streaming it live but I am streaming it through the xbox app. I could just time it through theatre or manually time it on stream if that is alright

Barcelona, Catalonia

Is possible do a run but not showing de counter?

Hello, how about add A " Get 10k points" (10k points ingame not Endgame Screen) Category for every Cod Zombie? i think would be a nice thing there and would be fun cause you need to think for every map a new way if i should buy a door or anything or not.

And would be easy to add to Every Map :)

What if you're doing a multiplayer speedrun but it's split-screen, is that allowed to be done or does it have to be online multiplayer only?

You can do multiplayer runs on split-screen

I Have a Question about Shangri-la, because there is a mod of Shangri-la that allows you to do the EE Solo, duo or trio, is it allowed to be submitted as a run under the 1 players category? or it does not count since it is considered a Modded Map? (Not sure if this should be posted here, but seeing that this is the rules of submitting a run I thought it was the right area, incase it is not my Apologies in advance)
