hI, I have a run waiting for months, the only moderator is inactive for over a year and I wish to be moderator, If possible.
The game in question: https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​mvc
(Marvel vs Capcom Clash of Super Heroes)

Hello. My request is simple.
A while ago, my a friend of mine helped me to submit this game https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​batterychad which is actually my own game... since this happened, the friend in question https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​user/​Erik_Sushi, unprovoked, has blocked me on everything everywhere and made it very clear that he has no intention of unblocking, even going out of his way to leave the games community on Discord and other platforms. Needless to say, I don't think he's going to be doing much in the way of moderation... since he has intentionally distanced himself entirely from the game and any community surrounding it. For obvious reasons, the whole "contact the person on social media" thing isn't an option for me, so I'm coming here for help. I would like replace him as a moderator and moderate the game (of course, with others if such is necessary) from here on out, or if there's some kind of rules against developers modding their own games, at least change the moderator to someone who's willing and who won't be inactive. Thank you in advance!

The sole mod for Monster House TheDarkestUno has de-modded himself recently due to not taking an interest in the game and now there are no mods for the SRC page. I have a pending full game run for Any% which is the current WR, and all the other requirements I believe I fulfill. The rules and timing method need a massive overhaul.

@LL.D Seems fine, added.

@FormulaFanboyFormulaFanboy In terms of replacing moderation, we will only do so to users with a proven run in the game, developer or not, and if there is a problem with the moderation of the game itself on here, specifically. Though I will try to dissect this post a bit:

Can you clear up exactly which community this discord belongs to? And by this I mean, is this a speedrunning community focused discord, or a discord centered around simply players/development of the game? Needless to say, we do not enforce moderators to be apart of any discord to participate in moderating games on here. Though perhaps a bit of explanation on the discord itself, and its role, would assist in this particular thing further.

There are no rules against developers moderating their own games, however there are procedures to acquiring moderation through this means, most of which can be read on the first page of this thread.

There do not currently appear to be any runs in the queue for this title as of right now, so you're going to need to provide greater explanation of how this predicament is affecting/going to affect moderation for the game on speedrun.com.

I have checked through forums and edit tabs for the nier series https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​nier_series and not found a way to remove my own supermod. We are going through some moderation changes and I would like to remove my supermod so that others may be added. I have contacted the other supermods but we're all aware that series mods will be set by the staff.

For now, just removing myself is fine although other changes will be coming forward soon. Currently waiting on the formal discord regime change but trying to get a bit ahead of the curve at least as far as srdc goes. Thanks in advance!

@-MarbleSoda--MarbleSoda- - Using this link directly will allow you to remove your own Super Mod status (the tab not showing is a bug): https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​nier_series/​editseries/​moderators

Nepumuk seems to be inactive for the game https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​roa1
None of my requests are reviewed...

I would like to take over moderation of this particular game 🙂

@ClawgClawg - The moderator was online 4 days ago (as stated in the first post of this thread, we consider mods to be inactive if they have not logged in for 21 days), and your runs have been pending for only 15 days (as per the Site Rules, moderators are given 21 days to handle run submissions). You should try contacting the moderator directly as they are active, both here and on social media.

Also, for future requests, you'll need to enable Email Authentication in your account settings, and add at least one more social media contact to your profile (preferably something like Twitch or Discord that you can be directly contacted on) before you can be added as a moderator to anything.

Heyo,

I was wondering if I could assume moderation for JellyCar 2. The original mod has been inactive for months and has since deleted his social media links giving me no way to contact him.

 
  FormulaFanboyFormulaFanboy

@LivLiv Very well, thank you.
I will record and submit a run. As far as the discord goes, it is mostly a community for the game itself, and not specifically speedrunning it-- and honestly, the discord server isn't what's important... what's important is that his leaving the discord server, along with the blocking, is a clear indication that he intends to cut all activity with the game and everything associated with it. My large concern here is that this will lead to a lack of moderation/biased moderation, but as previously mentioned, I'll submit a run to make sure. He will most likely either ignore it or unmod himself, which would leave no mods I guess? I don't entirely know what would happen, as I'm new to the site.

id like to request moderator for both Picross 3D and flOw. the runs ive submitted havent been verified in over a month, and it doesnt seem like theyll be verified anytime soon.

@PoshactPoshact - Going to decline this for now, as while you have a run on the boards, the moderator is still contactable via their YT or Reddit (the latter of which was used two days ago). If a run is submitted to the boards, then I would attempt contact on those. You are correct in that they deleted their Twitch and Twitter.

@stoic_rosestoic_rose - Regarding flOw, as the moderator has no contacts on their profile and is close to being very inactive, I have handled this. Regarding Picross 3D, that moderator is active (March 17th), so I would encourage you to attempt contact (I tweeted at them as well).

Hi, I would like to become a moderator in the game Monsters, Inc .:Mike's Monstrous Adventure, as there is no moderator in it and there was only 1 run on it. I also sent a race to the game 3 days ago, but it was not tested and most likely will not be in the near future.

@FormulaFanboyFormulaFanboy My issue with this in mind is that no user is obliged to be apart of any kind of community discord of this kind. Really for this to be any kind of case, we would need actual acts of moderation abuse with this title. Them leaving an unrelated discord and blocking you doesn't really class as moderation abuse here on speedrun.com, as all of this stuff is unrelated to the actual moderation of the game.

If you submit a run and there's a clear indication of inactive mods / mod abuse (such as it not being verified for over 21 days, or them intentionally ignoring it), then we can investigate further, but not with the current situation as it is right now.

@KoteranKoteran Seems fine, added.

I have had a run pending for 3weeks for hole.io. I would like to request to become moderator for hole.io. I attempted to contact the current moderator lapis this time with no luck. Thanks.

Hello. I would like to request to become moderator for Jables's Adventure. The actual mod was online for the last time 11 months ago.
His Twitter and YT looks inactive.

Thanks

hi, id like to be a super mod for Another Super Mario 3D. The mods are pretty inactive on the site or they just aren't verifying runs. Also people from the community discord aren't mods and there's changes that need to get made.

Hello there! I was wondering what has been going on with the decision of moderating my own series as I just submitted the series request about 2 weeks ago. I’m very concerned about this because I don’t think it’ll ever be put onto SRC as an actual series, unfortunately(Probably because I included a playlist of the videos of the games in my series). Anyways, I’m just concerned about it because if it surpasses 2 weeks, then it most likely will be forgotten about, which means I’ll probably delete it. My series is Hasbro Family Game Night, and I’m not sure if the moderators are ok with putting in a new series at this time. Hopefully I can receive some feedback from this post and if my series is rejected, then I will understand that decision, but only with a detailed explanation.
