Hi, I know there's a million problems for super mods to deal with, so I will keep it simple the best I can.

The game is this one:
https://www.speedrun.com/Twisted_Metal_Head-On

And just to show I've already tried to suggest solving the issue by contacting the mod of the game here, but I got no answer:
https://www.speedrun.com/Twisted_Metal_Head-On/thread/4l62n

I've talked to one of the mods of the game and he agrees with my point but only the main mod can do it. And from where I see I think he might be busy to deal with the matter now.

The point is these 2 games, are kinda different games.

TWISTED METAL HEAD ON >> (PSP)
TWISTED METAL HEAD ON (EXTRA T. EDITION) >> PS2

It's like comparing "Resident Evil" with "Resident Evil Director's cut" for example. The damage system is different, Item placement, the speed of the cars and all.
They are totally different versions, PSP and PS2, but were put in the same leaderboard

The things mentioned alone would be a good reason to have a leaderboard for the 2 games.

But the thing that makes it unavailable for competition is that the PS2 version has an extra level to beat in story mode. So those who play on PSP will always be on top records for shorter story mode time compared to ps2. It's kinda self explanatory.
Like a Resident Evil on Wii had extra cutscenes or extra rooms, and other in Xbox has not. it would have to be in different boards for each console.

I don't want to just bull in and make a problem on something, I'm really a fan of TM series as you can check in my runs and I have recorded more runs waiting to be submitted. I know it would be better to have fixed it before runs were submitted, But I think is better to solve now than later when more people submit more and more runs, the long it takes the harder it will become.

The way I could suggest is either

- requesting a new game for PS2 only, and later when the mod of this one is back he changes it to PSP only. So both games would be in Speedrun.com separately.
or
- being able to modify the boards and slipt consoles PS2 and PSP on this same game,

(Again, I know is annoying, have to erase runs already submitted... but, There are runs from 2 different games on same board, And I'm suposing that runners could just re-submit them without a problem)

Hi there. Could i be added as moderator for https://www.speedrun.com/Sunset_Riders_Genesis ?. I've submitted a run about a month ago, but the only active moderator is not submitting or rejecting my run, I can't contact him (links in profile doesn't work).Also there is two super mods with last online 3 years (fractale) and 6 month (Pinkpanther01).

@WeaponLord This is not the right thread for your request. This is a thread to request mod for a Leaderboard. Seems better to take your request to the Forums of Twisted Metal and let the moderators decide how to handle this further.

@TheQuickFox Did you reach out to any of the other moderators? Pinkpanther has some socials linked. Did you try to contact this moderator?

@Daravae yeah, i could not pm him on discord due "recipient is only accepting direct messages from friends, or you were blocked by the recipient" so i added him to friends and waiting for respond.

 
  WeaponLordWeaponLord

@Daravae Thank you. I've had taken this to the forum as I've shown, I've created a thread on the forum, but had no response.

I think the main Mod is Crisco, he's usually online but my guess he simply ignored.
https://www.speedrun.com/user/CriscoWild/info

Could I have a term for example, a week or so, to try further to contact him, and insist on the thread, and then may I be put as super mod for the game? This just in case he is still absent

To add on to what @NTRG mentioned (https://www.speedrun.com/The_Site/thread/63nr7/338#3tvjo) I tried contacting the mod myself. Their Twitch channel seems to be mostly inactive now. They have no past broadcasts at the time of writing, their last video was from over a year ago.

I also tried contacting them via Discord but I wasn't able to find them. I directly copied their username as it's written on their SRC profile and tried to find them/add them as a friend and nothing came up: https://i.gyazo.com/a1044609faf22c14055d0070be8e3f79.png

I'm aware it hasn't been the full 3 weeks yet, however I felt like I should try contacting the mod as it's my run that I'm waiting to be verified. I'm not asking to be added as a moderator to the game myself.

We have a problem when it comes to super mods and mods in the Trackmania games. There are a lot of super mods, but none of them are active. The ones who we are able to conctact are not super helpfull, and one of them didn't even understand themselfs why they became a mod/supermod for the games. When I got in contact with one of them he did not respond to my request about getting added as a mod. He just stopped responding. It seems like the original and active super mods, Alpines and Yazzo, demoted themselfs or deleted their account, but added some other runners as mods before they left.

The only active mod is RastaBobby, but he is only a mod, not a super mod. He has no problem with adding new people to help him moderate the leaderboards, but he doesn't have the power to do it. He had to make a post himself in this thread over 2 years ago (19. Dec 2016) in order to get added as a mod. His post resulted in the remaining mods getting bumped up to super mod in order to fix the problem, but they are all very inactive.

I would like to be a mod to help with adding some categories and make the leaderboard a bit cleaner. A lot of runs are missing in-game time at the moment, and I would like to fix that. Maybe the best option would be to make RastaBobby a super mod on all the games, as he is the only active mod anyway, so he could add new moderators himself?

@fepnascimento The mod in question has chosen to ignore the attempt at communication, and so we've chosen to try take matters into our own hands. We'll wait several days to see if this mod will reach out to us in an attempt to settle the issue at hand, however if they do not then we will look for other means of handling this. Your runs may be sat there for a little while, whilst we try to get this handled. Mods rejecting runs for no timer being displayed has always been a controversial issue on the site, however the majority of the full mods believe that unless there is a extremely valid reason for doing so then it is an unfair rejection, and it. Mods should be retiming submissions themselves anyway, as that is the duty of a game moderator to begin with.

@WeaponLord Have you tried social media? Looking a Crisco's twitter: https://twitter.com/CriscoWild/with_replies I can see he has been using it just yesterday. A decent attempt to reach out if expected, and the forums are not always the best place due to user's proclivity to check discord/social media over the forums, and notifications aren't always set up for them.

@TheMadWasp Just as an opinion, a run being in the queue for less than a week definitely isn't enough to get us to act unless the runner has been inactive for a very extended period. However, I will whisper at them via twitch and direct them to your post. Regarding discord, it's likely due to them disabling friend requests for users who aren't server members or friends of friends; that message doesn't always mean their user doesn't exist.

@DarkLink94 There looks to be a lot of mods offline for many months, 7+ months in some cases, so I'll try shift the moderation positions around to better reflect the active moderators and possibly shift out some of the ones who are likely not coming back at all, or not for a while.

Edit: Since Rastabobby is active and looks to be standard mod on every game already, upped him to Super and lowered the two mods who were offline for 7-8 months. I left Valux alone because he's only been offline for 2 months. If he stays inactive for far longer though I can go about handling that if Rastabobby wishes it though. He looks to have been handling the entire series until now for months.

@Liv Thanks for assisting. By the way I only mentioned my run as a reason as to why I was bringing itup again since @NTRG had tried previously without contacting the moderator, I'm not that bothered that it's not been verified immediately. Cheers

 
  DarkLinkDarkLink

@Liv Thank you very much for helping us with that situation! Yes, as far as I know, Rastabobby has been the only mod to verify runs and add categorys for over a year now. Could you also up him to Super mod on TrackMania Nations ESWC? He is listed as a standard mod there.

 
  LivLiv

@darklink94 The reason I didn't touch that particular game is because DivisionX looks to have used the site last week, and so I assume he is able to be contacted on social media. I don't necessarily want to alter a game's moderation unless there is no active moderator available to handle the task. I've whispered Division via Twitch though and directed him towards this particular request.

Thanks @Liv for adding me as a supermod on the other Trackmania games 😃

 
  WeaponLordWeaponLord

@Liv Thank you so much

Unfortunately I don't have Twitter, and lost my discord password long time ago. I don't have much time for social media really =(. And the only medias I have are Youtube and Steam (The super mod doesn't have steam or youtube, His youtube account seems to have beem deleted)

I know that the threads are shown to super mods because I super mod some games and I receive a notification when a new thread is created (not always when they are answered) but I do receive notification everytime a new one is created. And I'm pretty sure The super mod has seen it, It's just he hasn't been around on the forum of the particular game long time. If you look, he doesn't have any run on this particular game, and like 90% of other runs are verified by the other mods.

I've talked to @JayTheIdiot on steam. He told me he agrees there are 2 different games on same board and would be good to organize it, but he can't do nothing because Crisco is the supermod of this game.

Hello, my name is manticor5... I did submit a run in the game Three Wonders: Midnight Wanderers, but it seems there is no much activity to the page, no runs. My request is
to be a moderator of the page: https://www.speedrun.com/Three_Wonders_-_Midnight_Wanderers
I would like to add a name category: Co-Op 2 Players. Beat the game is the only category available, and adding that new category would help a lot to the page to rise in popularity, as a Capcom game. I would thank you a lot to accept my request, please.

Link of the run submitted by me, not verified:

Oh no... I don't have Twitter, maybe some whisper to the moderator through Twitch would help =). I will see if I can get an answer, thanks for your comment Dangerless.

Just thought I would say, since the last two requests seem to be centered around having a lack of contact oneself; it is always best to create a twitter (or the necessary social media) for these specific situations yourself, even if you do not intend to use it past that one purpose. It takes less than 2 minutes to do, and is likely going to circumvent a lot of the waiting you're going to have to do in these situations. That, and you can come back to it again in the future if you ever find yourself in the same situation again.

Not having a specific contact method yourself, does not mean that a moderator cannot be contacted. That issue lies with you. One thing to consider is that if you cannot contact other users due to a lack of social media, people also will not be able to contact you.

Hey there, can someone add me as a moderator for Not Tetris 2? (https://www.speedrun.com/nt2). The one mod on there seems inactive and doesn't have any social media listed. I have been able to find his yt through one of his runs posted and I tried posting a message on his community tab, but so far I've seen no response.

Hello. I would like to request to become upped to a Super Mod on Daytona USA https://www.speedrun.com/Daytona_USA
Reason being the previous 2 Super Mods are no longer active (one last online 2 years ago, and other 4 months, with no social media connected to his account).
Back when I joined them to post my own results, I was lucky to be able to get ahold of the more active one of the mods and was able to become a mod myself, but now, I want to make changes and additions to the leaderboards and the other mods are nowhere to be found or contacted.
