Reminder that this thread is only for last resort.
I mean seriously, newcommers are often posting here BEFORE trying to ask. It would be cool to have something in the thread title to warn the future poster that he has to ask moderators first then post here in case there is a problem.

He Also need to add ms beacuse this is a short game, And he have no info on the site. I been trying to contact him and i,m still trying.

marvjungs: The mods for MLDT are reasonably active with the site, they approved your run.
ssjhenrik: I'm fine with adding you because the only user moderating doesn't have a run and you do. The categories also appear not well set up.
Toad22484: Most of the mods for these games are active. You should contact the moderators, per the first post in this thread.

yeah , i saw it. I wrote it where the run was not accept at the moment. Because i they " ignore " it i though but now it´s ok. I will wait the next time longer then 3 days 😛

i would like to be Smod for http://www.speedrun.com/DinoCity

i know i sent a run a few days ago but seeing how active they are here and twitter(one of them doesnt use twitter but has it linked?)(last login 1 month ago). I can wait a few more days but i doubt it will be accepted by then.

If possible to also remove said person from the mod list since well.... inactive.

Edit: also note that the only run up there has no video so there is no way to validate his run.

I'd like to be a mod for the Donkey Kong Country 1, 2 and 3 GBA leaderbords. I asked the current mod if he could add me because I'm focussing on these games, but he didn't want to mod me.
I don't really understand why there is only one mod on those three leaderbords, and he doesn't even run these games. As someone who puts a lot of work into these games that feels a bit odd, to be honest. 😕

I'd be happy to be mod for the three leaderbords of the GBA-ports of Donkey Kong Country, linked below.

Out of interest: Is he taking care of submissions? Is the leaderboard in good shape? If yes, why would it need another mod?

 
  MarvJungsMarvJungs

Inmagine the only 1 Mod hasn´t time ( for example he is to busy with work / school ) , so he can´t accept runs. That´s the reason why More mods are ever better then only 1 Mod.

AND: It doesn´t make sense if the Mod doen´t know anything of the game that he moderates.

That´s the reason.

He reacts to submissions, that's not the problem. It just feels odd to have a single mod on a series of games who doesn't even run them.
Imagine working on a project, but needing permissions of someone who isn't even part of the project. What marvjungs said is totally right in my opinion. Why not have a mod who runs the games? It might sound weird, but for me it makes the series appear so unimportant that there just has to be anyone to mod it, no matter who it is.
I'd like to take responsability for what I put work into. 🙂

Deln: He responded to authorblues on Twitter when he asked not too long ago. I don't really see a large reason to intervene in this case since your run was approved and the super mod appears contactable and reasonable. (If the general consensus among the runners is an issue with his non-video run, that's a different discussion.)

Avanor: I sent him a PM, we'll see where that discussion goes.

I never once said I didn't want to mod Avanor. Also, other things:

1) I am mod of the dkc gbas because I requested the 3 games to be added.
2) I am knowledgeable about the DKC SNES games, and the gba games are similar in regards to how categories are defined.
3) I actively respond to submissions. If I miss for one day, it's not a big deal. I can handle the submissions as they aren't a lot at once.
4) Having more than one mod for the series is kind of unnecessary as it stands. There aren't a whole lot of submissions and the community is really small.

I'm not saying that Avanor shouldn't be mod, but granted the size of the community/run submissions, I don't really see a need. I'm glad avanor and a few others are working on these games, but I don't see that as a reason to need more mods. Also, another feeling I'm getting from this is "I run this game, therefore I should be mod." I dont think its necessary is all.

 
  Avanor_Avanor_

Well, as it appears nothing of what I've said is picked up in the way it was meant, which makes me kind of sad.

I never said "I run this game, mod me", and I don't dare to, because that wouldn't be the thing the mod-status stands for.
I tried to reason, obviously without any succession, so this discussion is done for me.

 
  DyceronDyceron

Ok, maybe the last thing wasnt good, but I did give reasons as to why for your request. The amount of runners/runs isnt large enough to make it necessary for more than one mod.

 
  Avanor_Avanor_

I never questioned the fact of how many mods there are necessary. I'd just think a game, no matter which one, regardless of how many submissions, and regardless of how big the community is, would deserve a mod who actually run the games. But it seems like I'm alone with that kind of thinking.
So I might contact you in the next days to add at least one more category for DKC3 and rules for the runs, because there are no at the moment.

So, no bad feelings, and thanks for the discussion.
