Also @starsmileystarsmiley I attempted to contact @Cyberdemon531Cyberdemon531 4 days ago, and she came on yesterday and either didn't notice the message or ignored it.

EDIT: The issue of verification has been resolved, however all of the Super Moderators are still inactive.

remove @AprilSRAprilSR as a minecraft series mod as literally adds any game/map that doesnt even obey game request rules, with such games as Minecraft Classic, MC Pi Edition, MC Pocket Edition Lite and MC Education Edition which are absurdly arbitrary

Hi Folks,

Apologies, but I did join Speedrun not too long ago and cannot message the full moderators yet:
@ShadowDraftShadowDraft
@starsmileystarsmiley
@HabrenoHabreno
@R0mainR0main

I find myself in a weird predicament here. I cleared the best time (so far) yet for: https://www.speedrun.com/x-men_1992/full_game#Arcade_Any_4P_UBB_version

That video can be found here:

Now, I have been waiting a couple of days for this to be cleared and added. I know it says up to a week or more but the mod for this game added me on Twitch yesterday (after I submitted a bit later) which I did find weird. I have submitted three different times over the last three days with no response.

Tonight, he joins my live Twitch stream and mentions to me that my last time of 12m 33s is invalid cause the game audio isn't there, though I am still speaking the entire time. My Twitch Studio audio just wasn't linked to my headset which is a stupid mistake. I wouldn't have even been able to tell unless I looked at the audio feed, so that's on me. Now, at this point, NONE of my runs have even been accepted/rejected though he's clearly watched them. All of that can be seen here: - you can jump to 48m in to see the comment thread live.

I mentioned that this run: https://www.speedrun.com/x-men_1992/run/emkxedvz has no in-game audio as well. Since he must have been listening to copyrighted music and muted on his stream, it doesn't appear to the end after he beats the game. How is that any different than my audio missing, especially when I am commentating during the whole run?

I do find this to be kind of unacceptable as it's still days since my original submissions and they are telling me in an outside platform that I have been rejected when I haven't had this on speedrun.com yet.

Furthermore, this is kind of borderline gatekeeping since this mod also has the top times on multiple leader-boards for this game. The last complaint is TODAY on 02/24/2021 or 02/23/2021 based on your timezone, he changed the game rules that you needed to have in-game audio in order for your run to be accepted. This is well after my run had been submitted and still as of 12:29 GMT has not been accepted or rejected.

The change that was made:
"Timer Start when you choose a character and stops when the final blow is delivered to magneto All run must have game audio."

I'm happy to provide screenshots on anything in question as well.

I believe in fairness and just downright good fun with things like this. We all can have fun by trying our best to be better when it comes to runs and achieving better times.

I would like to challenge this ruling and formally ask to become a moderator of this game as I would be fair and respectful. We all strive to become better on these runs, and that's what this is about rather than being reactive when it's unnecessary.

Best,
Michael

Hello, is it possible to promote me to supermod of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City (reorc)? The current supermod esfrenchie09 has been inactive on src for 4 months now and an even longer period of time in the game.

Hi! I'm the dev of Moonbase 332 and the only one who did a speedrun for the game atm.

https://www.speedrun.com/moonbase332/run/zno782ly

Since the moderator doesn't seem to be that active and has never published a speedrun for the game, it might be better if I were a moderator too.

I've linked my speedrun on Steam in the update announcement, in case there are concerns about whether I'm really the developer: https://steamcommunity.com/games/397580/announcements/detail/4219280084028388396

Hi! I’d like to request to be added as a moderator for Toejam and Earl in Panic on Funkotron. The current mod RantronBomb has been inactive for over a year. There are also forum posts requesting category additions that have gone unanswered for over a year as well. There are no timing rules or rules of any kind for the game defined in any category so I don’t have any runs submitted, but I’m active in the Toejam and Earl community and I have several runs on the first Toejam and Earl’s leaderboard. I tried reaching out to RantronBomb on Twitter, but their account doesn’t allow DMs to be sent to them so I figured I would reach out here.

Here’s the link to the Panic on Funkotron leaderboard: https://www.speedrun.com/toejam_and_earl_in_panic_on_funkotron

Hey, I'm requesting to become a moderator of the game Kanye Quest 3030. I submitted a world record run almost 3 weeks ago and have made numerous attempts to contact the current moderator on his various platforms, to no avail. He seems to be pretty inactive. I've even contacted individuals who have moderated the game's leaderboard in the past, but many of them are even more inactive. I went as far as to make a last ditch post in the game's forum section hoping for some kind of reaction, yet 2 weeks later I haven't been responded to. I'm not requesting the removal of the current mod, since there's a good chance he's coming back eventually; I'd just rather have my run verified sooner than later, even if I'm the one who has to do it.

I want to be a moderator here : https://www.speedrun.com/roblox_specter
the moderator barely gets active<not even once a week>, I even tried contacting him on discord (Spoiler: His discord is invalid) and he is not active at all on his YT channel. He didn't even update the categories because the game got updated, he is far behind with the lists. (the update is as old as 2 months and he didn't update it). I request remove of his mod.

Hello, I would like to request moderation status on the NFL Blitz series https://www.speedrun.com/nfl_blitz.​

The only mod has not been online in 6 months, and he has not been responding to messages on review inquires, making it impossible for me to get in touch with him. In addition, I am the current WR holder for both categories of the current iteration of this game, making my status active and allowing me to have further insights as to what would constitute as a valid run. Outside of this, there has been a lot of interest from other users and gamers to run this specific game but since the only mod is inactive, it is hard for there to be consistent validations as well as forums and walkthroughs to be made (which I would love to do).

Beyond the initial requests, there has also been requests to add other iterations or versions of the game to the series boards (i.e., Gameboy ports, etc.)

All-in-all, this series needs a community leader who will keep the boards clean and allow for growth for this game. I am up for the task!

@Elite2HeroesElite2Heroes Added.

@Jesus82050615Jesus82050615 I have removed Escort_Quest due to inactivity but Charlieboy is active on other social medias, so I would recommend reaching out to them.

@ShinboyShinboy Did you ask them to add you as a moderator?

@GarshGarsh Added.

@FruitFul-oneFruitFul-one Please enable e-mail authentication.

@therealmyoumanstherealmyoumans Moderators are not required to verify runs every time they login. And while I don't agree with not accepting your run that was submitted before the rule was introduced, the rule is fair and logical and they have a right to not accept runs in this case without it. If you have any other issues or want to rebuke this, feel free to message me privately.

@RMTM_rozukkRMTM_rozukk Done.

Yes, I did try to contact him(in DMs), no reply since 3 weeks ago. And even through his discord(Which is not valid) but I couldn't send him a friend request bcs he didn't put a correct name / tag (most likely changed his name)

Requesting mod for grow nano4. My run has been pending for just over half a year. When contacting the mod, they would always just say they are too busy to verify the run and not verify it (I have asked them on 3 different occasions over the past 6 months). They have since not logged in for 2 months. Thanks

Hello there, sorry the long post. I'm contacting you in regard to Dino Crisis 2. There are multiple problems with both the Moderators and the leaderboard itself.

Let's start with the first Mod: MisterDodi. who has never run the game once and he doesn't participate in any forum discussion. He is clearly breaching the rule:
“Moderators should typically speedrun the game, or at a minimum be heavily involved with the community.”
It is not that there is nobody else available, indeed his “participation” is limited to deny other runners the possibility to become moderators. Refusing any request.
We, as community, demand his immediate removal.

The second moderator is a runner of the game, who knows the game really well and he promptly verify every run, making him a good moderator in that sense. However, he lacks every other skill of a moderator. He views the leaderboard as his own. Doesn’t listen the community, acting as a ruler of the land. He is breaching these rules:
“Leaderboards should be viewed as owned by the community and curated by the moderators. A user who requests a leaderboard does not own the leaderboard.“
As well as
“The users moderating a game should represent the consensus of the players of the game. If it is evident that moderators are not representing consensus among runners, site staff may change moderation.”
You can see for example this recent discussion where all runners finally vented their frustration in a forum thread and showed to be united and to agree on the solutions of a couple of issues with the board. It is 9 runners all in agreement vs 1 moderator who doesn’t want to listen.
https://www.speedrun.com/dino2/thread/njyj5
I believe it is fine to keep him as Moderator, but he needs to be balanced by active and respected members of the community.

We identified 2 SuperMods to be added to replace MisterDodi:
@wolfdncwolfdnc notorious speedrunner and streamer, runner of DC2 and moderator of other games. He can bring his experience in dealing with technical issues and management of the site, and bring his soft skills as a Moderator in general. He accepted to be added at least ad interim to fix the problems with the board.
@If_And_WhileIf_And_While notorious runner of DC2, and multiple WRs holder. Surely the most active member of the community, always helps everyone with technical issues. You can find him in every DC2 stream. He can bring his experience with the game having tested all categories and platforms and his will to test and recommend Emulator setups. He wish to be moderator.

If this wasn’t enough we have @Dimension_BomberDimension_Bomber, who took a break from speedrunning and gaming, but he could come back and help if needed.
@NazzarenoNazzareno, other WR holder, who doesn’t wish to be a moderator, but he is willing to be one if needed.
I can also personally help as verifier in the future if needed.
We are not short of options.
