Forums  /  The Site  /  Leaderboards moderation requests thread (Locked)
  TransparentBlueTransparentBlue

Hello,

I'd like to request that user LoveBot be removed as supermod from the game series https://www.speedrun.com/assault_android_cactus, and all leaderboards therein.

This is due to his behavior within and in relation to the community since he hasn't been active inside of it for nearly 2 years, which has culminated in his recent removal/demotion of other moderators with no good justification as a completely unilateral decision. He did this because the community disagreed with him about putting the Switch release of the game on a separate leaderboard. He's behaving more like a dictator than a moderator, so the community feels he is no longer fit for the role. As the site moderation guidelines state “You are a representative of the community, not the ruler.”

The community has also compiled a history of his behavior which can be provided privately or publicly if requested, as this is not the first time he's acted on his own without consulting the community / in complete disregard of what the community wants.

In his place, I suggest instating https://www.speedrun.com/user/Moonspod or https://www.speedrun.com/user/SeaJay , since they have been the most active moderators and contributors until they were removed by him.

Thank you for your consideration.

I am stepping down as a mod, which is why I am restoring the leaderboard to its original owner.

I also find it super uncomfortable to read things about me that is just blatantly untrue. I dont want to discuss this here, but my DM's have always been open, and ive reached out often to ppl who dont respond. Please dont spread lies about whats actually been happening. Enjoy your leaderboard. 🙂

If a site moderator needs to talk to me about my changes, please do. Would love to do so. Besides that, I have stepped down as a moderator as was the plan, and why I did moderator changes, as I didnt want to leave the board with mods I didnt feel comfortable with.

It is a good thing for us that you finally decide to step down but again it would have been great if we were made aware of it prior, our DM's have also always been open.
We also want to make sure that people and the site moderation are aware of what you have provably done in regards to our community and that this is not just a graceful stepping down on your part.

>as I didnt want to leave the board with mods I didnt feel comfortable with.
So you took it upon yourself to make such an important decision alone and not consult the community at all at any point.

EDIT: Now that LoveBot has removed himself as a supermod from the game series https://www.speedrun.com/assault_android_cactus, and all the leaderboards contained inside and gave it to someone who hasn't been active on this site or anywhere public in several years and has no contact info that we can find I'd like once again to ask that a supermod be nominated from any of the currently active runners of the game

I don't see anything untrue about TB's post.

It's cool that you're stepping down, though. I guess this is goodbye. We appreciate what you've done for our community in the past, LB.

----------------

Anyway, as far as I know, walterx8 (the only remaining series mod) is inactive, so we will need a new series moderator at some point. MoonsPod is the most obvious choice for this. I could also do it, I guess.

Sorry about this mess.

Hello friends!
I would like to be mod of the LeaderBoard Shin Kid? Senki Gundam Wing:
Endless Duel: https://www.speedrun.com/gwed
The current mod is missing Spacegy4: https://www.speedrun.com/user/spacegy4
It has run to be analyzed, I can not contact the current mod and I have ideas for the leaderboard. It's all been stopped for a while. I do not want his place, I would add, add agility. That way the runner does not get discouraged. We have to follow the rules, but I'm trying to say that I can and want to cooperate with something. No more, I just have to thank you.

Hello !

To clarify some of the things @LeandroAmadeu said:
I tried to contact the current mod @spacegy4 as well on twitter a couple of times, but he does seem inactive.
There are requests on the Shin Kidou Senki Gundam Wing: Endless Duel forums about adding more categories and a run from myself (and maybe others?) that needs to be verified. As a mod for the "Gundam Series" on speedrun.com i can tell, that Leandro very communicative, plays the game a lot and is the current WR holder for this game. He has some good ideas for new categories and is responsible and active of this site.
The post we are referring to is this: https://www.speedrun.com/gwed/thread/q1ouh

It would be a really good addition to the game, if we have Leandro as a mod !
Also it would be helpful, since there is a marathon (Speedyfists) coming up, where we have a 3 way race, to have an active mod on the boards, to make it easier for people to submit their runs.

Thank you very much !

I am requesting mod for Cubix Robots For Everyone:Race 'N Robots as the current mod has neither accepted nor rejected my runs submitted on February 25th and she has logged into the site multiple times since then.
(yes I messaged her on discord asking for her to verify my runs)

Moderation request for https://www.speedrun.com/coe

It's been nearly 30 days since I made a forum string for this game to discuss category changes/additions and still no response from the page moderator.

I have not submitted my run as it requires a different category to be created. I feel the current moderator (who does not run the game) has no interest in upkeeping the page.

As the only runner of this game, can I please be added to the page so I can finally update categories and get my run on the board?

I would like to request to be a mod for Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam. I currently have the number 1 speedrun, have been playing the game on and off for about 8 years and most likely know the most about the game than anyone, considering the small community.

I was wondering when the Mod post to verified my Rondo of Blood run https://www.speedrun.com/rondo/run/yd3o5r0z it been like 2 or 4 days for me and i'm still waiting for mod to verified it. Yes its one of my favourite Castlevania games on the PC engine, i've mean gosh i hope i'll keep doing it.."

Plus i been doing other runs like megaman for example and i don't know what other runs i should do but i'll find a better game for me.

^ You were told in the actual game forum not to bother the mods to verify your runs. They'll do it when they get round to it, and they're not under any obligation to conform to your timeframe.

@Peregrine That game already has four mods. Two appear to be inactive (no logins this year) but one was online last month and the other just last week. There's probably no need to add extra mods. You having WR and knowing the game the best is great, but unless mods are all inactive or (I suppose) incompetent, it doesn't matter as far as being a mod.

Hi for a week now I’ve been speedrunning the game Polarity https://www.speedrun.com/Polarity, unfortunately the moderators are inactive, I sent them a request to become a moderator on the forum of the game https://www.speedrun.com/Polarity/thread/qd2ep but also on their twitter, the co-op categories that are not run interest me to occcupy. moreover no one can validate my runs that I submitted earlier this week, if you can do anything that will be great, thank you.

Hiya, gonna post another thread on this game https://www.speedrun.com/Youyou_Kengeki_Musou

Last time l posted, the moderator has been offline for a month. It has now been 3, and there's still no signs of them coming on anytime soon. I also got the other runner to submit his runs, so it doesn't look like it's just me wanting to verify my own runs :^)

I recently requested that some inactive moderators were removed from Payday 2 leaderboards. Now, I'm requesting to be made super mod for PAYDAY game series https://www.speedrun.com/payday as the two mods there @Lavender_cobra (Last online 1 year ago) and @Cpt_Falconator (Last online 8 months ago) are inactive and I don't have any way to contact them. If possible I would also like them to be removed as mods for the series. Thanks in advance!

Hello,

Concerning The Age of Decadence leaderboard: https://www.speedrun.com/aod

Moderators have been offline ranging from a month to three years. They have very few contact informations. I've tried the forum, the twitter and twitch of a super mod (who's been active but not answering), youtube channels, that's pretty much it. It's only been a few days but between the lack of activity and the small size of the community to begin with I don't have much hope. My most recent submission is only the last, I deleted the previous ones.

Please help 🙂
