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!

@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?

@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.

I am requesting moderation for the game "Löwenzahn 5", found at https://www.speedrun.com/lz5. The moderator has not logged in for 6 months, has been inactive on all linked social media platforms such as YouTube and Twitch and my run has been pending for 3 months now.

Kind Regards, Akhara

I would like to request to be the series moderator for the Touhou series. This is because a new Touhou game is coming out, and the current series moderator, @bjwbjw, has not logged in for two months. I have attempted to contact them when they had not moderated any Touhou runs for ten months on Twitter and on the site, to no reply.

@starsmileystarsmiley I contacted all three supermods requesting to be a moderator three days ago. YetiHype has not been online in a month, Cubeface has not done anything with the game, and CapnClever, despite logging on recently, either did not notice or ignored a message sent 3 weeks ago and my message from two days ago.

I'm not asking for any of them to be removed, but it would be preferred to have a supermod that actively runs the game and is up to date on current strategies.

I'm the moderator for all the versions of Bully, however we don't have a series mod, and I'd like to touch up the forum, remove old stuff etc etc, and be ready to add new stuff in future. If I could get series mod for it, that'd be rad - https://www.speedrun.com/bully_series

Hiya! I have a couple runs pending in RollerCoaster Tycoon 2: https://www.speedrun.com/rct2 -- The runs have been pending for about a month.

I'd like to know if I could be made a supermod of this game, since the current mods seem to be inactive. One moderator last logged in in January, and the super mod in December. The super mod reached out to me on Twitch to ask if I could be a moderator since he knew he was going to be inactive for a while, but never got me set up. I could share those DMs with a staff member if they'd like to see them.

Thanks!

Hi, I would like to be added as a super moderator for https://www.speedrun.com/wbwwb#Finish_the_Game

Both moderators are barely active ( once every month / 2 weeks ) on sr.c and have tried contacting both.

I tried contacting one of the moderators ( TheRealShadnic ) but his discord doesn't work and he is not active on the other social media linked.
I also contacted CreepinAtMyDoor trough discord because they are active there but still haven't got any answer.

I have runned the game before so i know how retiming rules works on there.

Thanks in advance !

EDIT: i got an answer from one of the mods (CreepinAtMyDoor) trough discord. Im guessing TheRealShadnic is still afk though.

Hi, the Super Moderator (Inactive) and Moderator (Banned) are both inactive for a game I play. It is Space Is key. I see the Super Mod was last online a week ago. I also submitted a run a week ago which didn't get verified. Would I be able to be a Mod or Super Mod?

@iTezKeziTezKez moderators are given 2-3 weeks to verify runs

edit: as of writing this Jumpyluff (Series Mod) was online 4 hours ago and Bat 15 hours ago, If you're talking about the game Space Is Key, FireWall is currently active
