As part of PSR's decision to separate the community into smaller discords, the Stadium series of Pokemon games (which includes Battle Revolution) have moved to a new discord server.

Just read the rules, react to the rules to get the member role, and enjoy your stay!

Thread: Create a tool to anonymize a submitted time on a leaderboard

I do agree that improving the audit log would also be a great solution, ShikenNuggets, although I'm not sure what technical concerns there would be with my initial proposed solution. It's essentially just a matter of setting a flag to not show certain info on certain runs; I doubt that it would be a massive struggle to implement it. It doesn't have to be perfect, and it's fine if someone is able to dive into the source code and find the information; I am just proposing to make this information not visible to those who aren't looking for it. I also do agree that the action should not be one that's taken lightly, and I don't know how that would be addressed. Again, I'm in favor of removing the runs of offenders entirely, and this was simply a compromise that I saw others think of and I altered slightly. I'd rather see the runs of the offending parties anonymized than for nothing to happen to them at all.

I don't know if I'd agree with your assessment that the site's response has been completely neutral, though, since inaction is almost never truly neutral. But, that's a whole other topic.

Derek, what you've said is true but this can only be done for one user per game (unless you start assigning people as Anonymous Runner A/B/C and stuff like that, which could get pretty dumb pretty quickly).

And to both of you:
This also wouldn't be easily reversible; if the decision was made to reverse this in the future, people would have to keep track of who's who, potentially far into the future. A designated tool to do this would be much more useful.

Apologies for not quote replying, I'm not really sure how to do it.

With recent credible allegations of sexual abuse against many speedrunners, I think it's important to give the proper tools to moderators of speedrunning communities to properly address the issue in an easy manner.

I, for one, believe that all the times of abusive speedrunners should be removed; however, there is not even close to universal agreement on this. Many people cite that leaderboards are meant to keep track of the history of a speed game, and thus times of abusers should not be removed, in order to preserve that history. Even if many do agree that these people's times should be removed, many also disagree, and it can be hard for moderators to make committal decisions regarding this issue.

A tool that the website could incorporate that would greatly reduce this issue would be a tool to anonymize a submitted run to the public. This would allow moderators to hide the proof video, site account and social media links of a submitted run, to all except moderators of the game. Moderators could then also reverse this change if new evidence comes to light.

This solution would address most of the concerns of both sides and would allow communities to make stances on these issues without as much commitment or dispute.

Is this a functionality that speedrun.com could add in the near future?

Can the streams section of the site start including Youtube/Mixer streams?
