I have a submitted run to
Speedrun.com/Famaze
My run is WR snd there's only one other run on the leaderboards, completely dead game. Can I be a mod to approve my run?

@YogiBearback This is a thread meant for moderation requests, usually for inactive moderators. I take from this message you are requesting to become moderator for this game? This moderator is obviously active and has also responded back to you, so I do not see any reason to add you now. Please try and settle your dispute with him. He is the best person to try and discuss why your category should be allowed, as well as you can request to become a moderator by messaging him.

@Babick Moderator seems active on Twitter. Please try and make a substantial effort to reach out to him first through his listed socials.

@Jugador According to the logs, moderator is actively verifying runs in the past month. He also verified your run today.

@UNICOY We'll investigate this situation and get back to you.

@Wesley Moderator seems inactive for about 4 months and also shows inactivity on most of his socials. Added.

I have submitted a run to speedrun.com/blender_bros . The only moderator on the boards has been inactive on everything for at least a year. I would like my run to be accepted (and any other runs that may have been done), so I'd like to be given moderator status for the game.

@UNICOY I'm gonna make a thread on the game's forum to try get this sorted out.

edit:

@ldma666 Should be fine now, added.
@Bimj Ok, this should be fine, as the game is unmodded anyway and I can't see anyone claiming this anytime soon.
@bdonp Have you tried to contact the mod in any way? Going off their info page they've only been offline for a month and not a year, and your run was only submitted today.

@trapmix The current mod: https://www.speedrun.com/user/SoloQ/info is active, please direct your request towards them.

Hey. I submitted runs to these games. Adventure Ponies 2 and Twilight Celebration game. The mods for those games are @Flutter who has no contact info and is inactive for 4 months. I would like to become mod for these games and the links are here https://www.speedrun.com/twilightcelebrationgame https://www.speedrun.com/ap2 I also submitted a run to adventure ponies 1 and they do have a mod other than Flutter there but I tried to contact him with Twitch and he has not responded nor does he seem active. I would also like to become mod for Adventure ponies 1. Link for that game is here https://www.speedrun.com/adventureponies

Both mods for https://www.speedrun.com/raft_wars have been inactive for 3+ months, and I have not had any replies from @Galla (@tehgoblintinkerer has no contact info). I would like to request mod.

Requesting mod for "Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles The Crystal Bearers"

https://www.speedrun.com/ffcctcb

The current and only mod has been inactive for a lengthy period of time and has not responded to my reaching out via social media. I have runs waiting to be approved and a board that could benefit from an active mod.

Requesting Mod for "Duke Nukem Forever". One of the only 2 mods has been inactive for over 3 years, and the other one I cannot get in touch with on either twitch, nor twitter.

Thanks.

Please could I be added as a Series Mod for the Rocket Knight series?

https://www.speedrun.com/rkseries

I'm the only user on the site to run/moderate every game within the series, but nobody currently has Series Mod powers so there's nobody for me to ask.

@Oppai Moderator seems quite active on Twitch. Through what methods have you tried reaching out to this moderator? Also, do you have a a run in the queue for this game or for what reasons would you request to wish to become a moderator?

@Otterstone_Gamer Both moderators seem inactive (4 & 7 months of inactivity) and Flutter has no contact methods at all. Added.

@Professor_Palmer That is seemingly strange as this moderator is quite active on Twitter. Any idea why he would not respond to you? Assuming you tried to contact him through there. I have send him a message on Twitter regardless to look into this issue. Please allow a little bit of time for him to respond.

@Drakodan There are only four games in this series. Small series are in no immediate need for a series moderator. For what reasons would require series moderator exactly?

There's no 'need' per se, I just figured it's better for the series to be with a series mod than without one. It's no odds if I'm not added since it's unlikely that the series will see any new releases.

@Daravae I appreciate that. I don't think he's doing it maliciously or anything... He responded to me once a week or two ago but not to any of my future comments. I know he doesn't stream or speed run anymore so he could just be disinterested in talking about it. He's a cool guy nothing against him, just probably missed it.

@Daravae https://www.speedrun.com/wua#All_Seashells Ive been waiting for a run to be verified for a month. the mod is https://www.speedrun.com/user/Crockey, he needs to be removed as a mod. if there is a request for a new mod considering he is the only mod, it would be https://www.speedrun.com/user/frikkinfriks14 or me. thank you

 
  OppaiOppai

@Daravae I was able to get in contact with one of the mods @Galla regarding https://www.speedrun.com/raft_wars . They are okay with adding me as mod, however, the super mod @tehgoblintinkerer has not been active in 5 months, and they are the one who has not given me a reply through Twitch

 
  scikusciku

@Daravae any news on Jeser for the runs to be approved ? If not I'd like to apply as a mod for the DbD leaderboards. Thanks you.

Hey. I was wondering if I could become moderator for the My Little Pony Series. The series has had a few new releases over the past 5 years and neither of the Moderators for the Series has contact info nor are really active ( @Flutter for 4 Months) ( @MagicalMuffinFarts for 6 months). I am also moderator of a majority of the games in the Series and I would be able to add the new games that have been added to this Series. Link is here https://www.speedrun.com/mlp

@Daravae Yes, he did but only when I said that I would ask to be a moderator because he had been ignoring me for 3 weeks and for some reason he does not want to add more mederators even though he is not interested in the game
I have seen that it is normal for it to take weeks to verify and it seems a lot to me
I do not think it would hurt to have another moderator
I would not take so long to verify a 14 minute video, I would add rules, something that has not been done in more than a year, if someone new wants to learn this game I can help much more than someone who has not played for more than a year
And above all avoid situations like the one that happened recently in which he wanted to ban 16 versions of the game, 5 languages and 1 console

@InS_Sane Have you tried to contact Bonesaw via twitter? He's quite active on there. What exactly is this issue concerning? As you do not appear to have any pending runs / forum posts on the game.

@jakethegr82007 It's been pretty far from a month pending, only 19 days in fact. I will shoot the current mod an attempt to contact, if they do not get back to me in the next couple of days I can work something out.

@Oppai Is there any particular reason @Galla is unable to do this himself if he has gotten back to you? He is a super mod with permissions to add you.

@Otterstone_Gamer Games can still be sent through the request form. Perhaps another mod can offer some input on this or a different viewpoint, but most of the time to me all assigning series mod haphazardly seems to do is get a bunch of games added to a series that remain empty with no runs.
