More in-depth explanation of the bug @TiyentiTiyenti was describing above, including a workaround. This only happens in a very specific circumstance but I would still prefer if it were fixed.

weird glitch on the sa2 boards, some people are shown as "first place" more than once. it also affects the profiles of the affected users. shown is talon's profile page, which has 2 1st place runs in 180 Emblems (one of which being not only obsolete, but also beaten by someone who isn't talon) and a 1st place run that is actually 5th place on the Any% boards. http://prntscr.com/u0kskl http://prntscr.com/u0kt1v

also shibakee's run (6th place) is inexplicably shown as 3rd place. http://prntscr.com/u0kti0

(Sorry! Posted as an individual thread instead of in this superthread. The fact that "Feature Requests" links to the main forum and not just this thread always confuses me lol. Here's a mirror of my original thread post.)

Can we have a leaderboard-side thing that allows mods to choose the Centisecond denomination of time rather than the Millisecond one?

In a lot of games, In-Game Time is displayed to the Centisecond (.xx) instead of the Millisecond (.xxx). Livesplit similarly only displays time in centiseconds, and you can't even get the millisecond digit without uploading to somewhere like splits.io and looking in the run statistics section. Games like SA2B also have an issue where people submit the digits of the IGT as 28 42 27 for example, which will display as 28:42.027 instead of 28:42.270 (intended) which requires a lot of manual editing from mods to make uniform.

I'm not asking for a change to the default, but if there's any way to make it so that centiseconds can be a feature that individual games can enable rather than being forced to milliseconds that would be wonderful. Thanks for your consideration.

there's no padding under the "There are no runs." text. Works fine for everything else so I thought I'd mention it.

if you hit the cancel button on the "provide reason for run rejection" dialogue box, the site crashes

This change is baffling. SRC should not be a melting pot for all of the communities within speedrunning to exist in the same way, it's a piecemeal combination of a bunch of communities built around speedrunning specific games. Taking way the individual agency of specific games to ban specific users and delist runs will only further reduce incentive for those currently not using this website to become a late adopter. Adding "red tape" for the sake of the end user within the community is a far larger hinderance than it may initially seem, because of the limits it puts on those that create, maintain and facilitate said community for the rest of those involved.

I think many communities would have instead preferred some form of tandem, in which Moderators can provide some form of reason directly to SRC staff while blacklisting a user, and SRC staff can open a dialogue with said Mods where they can further explain or work through blacklist-related decisions, and both parties can come to individual conclusions on specific users based on the kind of threat they may pose to the site as a whole. On the other hand, it would be some form of quality control for the mods in question, and you can more closely monitor mods who are a bit too ban-happy and stop the problem at it's source, since that seems to be what this change was made for in the first place.

Hopefully this change goes back to the drawing board for a bit.

Since category extensions boards are now linked directly to the main boards and vice versa (thanks for this btw, very useful), I was just wondering if it was at all possible to have the catex board's resources link to the main game's resources page, or even just a clone of it so that all of the resources don't need to be uploaded twice. I can understand that some people would want to have different resources for each but having the option to "use same resources as main game" with just a lil checkbox to enable/disable would go a long way.

I have a password system for all of my important passwords. I came up with a password I really like for SRC after the first leaderboard compromise. I was forced to swap it to a different password because of the second leaderboard compromise. I'm not asking for people to let me use a really weak password ("dog123" for example) again, I just want to be able to re-use the earlier password I came up with specifically for SRC before I had to come with a separate, not as enjoyable one to use.

I understand why password security is important, you don't need to lecture me about it. I just want to use the original one. If that can't happen it's not a huge deal I was just asking.

love the idea. this is a nice happy medium between log-in effort spent and account security. will we be able to re-use previously used passwords now? I came up with a really sweet password between rollbacks 1 & 2 and was sad that I only got to use it for a day

Looks like it could be a fun idea! Is there a way to add a specific flair to the category that signifies which character is being used? If yes, would you consider adding it? I think it would be a good addition.

Thread: Where should NASA 2018 be?

It sounds like Toronto just has the most going for it as a venue location.

Based on current responses (52 people) to the form, the geometric median (point with least total distance to each spot, or cheapest total travel costs approximately) is somewhat between Detroit and ¤¤¤Toronto¤¤¤

Baltimore/¤¤¤Toronto¤¤¤ are cities where at least one NASA staff lives, so getting equipment to an event at these cities would be much simpler.

¤¤¤Toronto¤¤¤/Chicago have biggest airports (so likely to have the cheaper flights)

Overall I'd say ¤¤¤Toronto¤¤¤/Cleveland are the best from this list, going purely by distance from attendees.

Although if you were actively looking for reasons to move it, I'd still not recommend Orlando mainly because Smash The Record happens there. Sure it's not a major speedrunning event but as it stands it has enough speedrunning for a decent amount of people to go there and show off their speedgames. Alternatively, I'd recommend doing something closer to Valencia, or just general West Coast venues. As it stands, the current largest speedrun events in North America are in VA/DC, MN, FL (I'm counting it) and where NASA's been historically, ON. For a large portion of people, the closest GDQ to them is in the Midwest or Florida, and that's just silly if you live somewhere like California, British Columbia or Texas. For a North American event, it kinda looks like we're currently centred around the Upper East Coast of the US/Southern Ontario & Southern Quebec.

As someone that lives near Toronto for the time being I wouldn't mind if you kept it around here for now, just throwing my two cents out there.
