Couldn't find a suggestions thread, so I hope this is the correct place to put a couple suggestions:
1) If possible, the option to be able to middle/scroll wheel click runs to open that run's page without leaving the leaderboard.
2) The option to maybe see a notification on the globe in the top right when someone replies to your post? This seems like a stretch since currently I don't think there's a way to reply to a specific post. Still thought i'd mention it though.

an idea i've had for awhile is the ability to comment on submitted runs. i'm not gonna speak for if it's hard or easy to implement, but it would be neat.

Especially in the case of "users not on the site", I don't really like the idea of hosting a comment board without their approval. Youtube comments are able to be moderated by the user. Run comments are potentially prone to harassment

If implemented I would prefer:
1: No comments on runs by non-users
2: Users have the ability to permanently turn off and moderate comments on their runs.

I'm writing this here because I don't have access to Skype at the moment.

You should add a way to prevent multiple posts when submitting a run or even a forum thread. It's quite common to see that some people submitted their run twice or more because the site can be slow. (The record being 13 times if my memory is good)

If it's not possible, then maybe a script that runs once a day to remove doublons could do the trick.

I don't know how the website is made but isn't it possible to prevent this when we push the data in the DB ?
For example for a post, checking if (Username, Title, Content) aren't already in the table of the sub-forum they're going to be posted.

Putting a nonce on the submit forms would be a good idea to avoid the doubled posts.

I'd like if people were able to edit the comments for their runs without having to get them verified again. As it stands, whenever people do this, their times get removed from the leaderboards and I have to verify them again.

I don't know if it was already suggested (And I make this here to avoid being reprimanded by Gyoo Kappa ) but it could be great to have a "Mark all forums as read" 🙂

 
  GyooGyoo

Please I'm friendly 😱

And yes, it's a feature that has been requested for so long 😖

 
  MadzinahMadzinah

I know you're friendly 😉

I didn't see it so, I just remind you 😃 But I know that could be difficult to implement and this is not in a hurry 🙂

 
  retiredretired

lol @ gyoo. We all know you're friendly but I still believe its best to put serious suggestions in separate threads. 😛

How about a advertise your runs forum.

People can post threads in there to advertise runs to try and get people involved and running the games.

Huge bug on http://www.speedrun.com/crashmom and http://www.speedrun.com/crashoot
Runs are not obsoleting each other for some reason.
Also causing amazing profile logic:

Hey I just noticed that the Resources page for DK64 is getting a bit cluttered. We could remove a thing or two but honestly the best would be to be able to order them in a logical way.

I suggest to add a way to create groups within resources, or at least to be able to reorder everything without deleting and readding them in order. If that's already possible, sorry for sucking.

An example of what it would look like:
Tools
Fastest Routes
link link
link link

Alternate Routes
link link

Knowledge base
bunchalinks

Video Tutorials
link link

You get the idea.

Thanks in advance!

Reordering resources similar to how categories are handled should be relatively easily implemented.

Beyond that: I'm wanting generic groups of things for other functionality as well, so writing grouping code specifically for resources might not be the best use of time right now.

Suggestion: record the placement of runs when submitted/approved so that people can see the original rank of each run as well as the current rank (could show this on user profile pages maybe)

Also, the lines above/below some region symbols might be a bug?

1) Yes, this is clearly something that would be an improvement. I'll have to check how it's actually done though.
2) Indeed, this exact thing is a bit tricky since there's no way to really reply as such, but in the upcoming update you will be able to get a notification whenever there's a post in a specific forum, which could possibly be extended to specific threads later on.

Also, I fixed the thread. Not sure how it got broken, but it should be ok now. Sorry I didn't respond sooner, busy week.

Originally posted by slowfreq an idea i've had for awhile is the ability to comment on submitted runs.

As kirkq already said it's something that certainly needs to be thought about before it's implemented.
Perhaps you could open a separate thread about it and get a bit more feedback (sorry Gyoo OpieOP )

Originally posted by Gyoo You should add a way to prevent multiple posts when submitting a run or even a forum thread.

Absolutely, IRL stuff and the following update have been distracting me from implementing something but it's certainly still on the todo list.

Originally posted by Skull64 I'd like if people were able to edit the comments for their runs without having to get them verified again.

Makes sense, I'll check out how this should be implemented after the following update.

Originally posted by Madzinah it could be great to have a "Mark all forums as read"

Agreed but since the forums code is kind of a complete mess, this is not easy to implement.
I'm actually trying to more or less stay away from the forums code because there's so much that needs to be changed about it, but when there's some cleanup/overhaul done to it, this is certainly one of the features that needs to be implemented.

Originally posted by swingflip How about an advertise your runs forum.

Not sure if this would actually be particularly used and why it would be needed in addition to the Speedrunning forum.
Also http://www.reddit.com/r/speedrun/ kinda serves this purpose already imo.
And again, the forums code is a mess, so adding forums either adds to the mess or is hard to do right.

Originally posted by CrystalChaos Suggestion: record the placement of runs when submitted/approved so that people can see the original rank of each run as well as the current rank (could show this on user profile pages maybe)

Being able to see more statistics (such as the placement over time) would be nice, when there's time to look into stats I'll look into this as well.

Yes, that looks like a bug. On what pages is this happening and what browser are you using?

It's happening on all game pages, but only for the flags listed under the Region tab (not the player flags).
My browser is Chrome Version 43.0.2357.124 m.

Edit: Actually, the line under the US flag appears to show up more prominently when associated with certain consoles (N64 and SNES at least) than with others (PC and Wii U VC, possibly more). The Korean one I took from this thread, so I don't know the conditions on that.

After some investigation the only cause for the issue I could find was rounding errors in the browser when zooming in.
While there is not a lot we can do about that, I did change the image a bit to hopefully avoid the problem.
Let me know if it's solved now (give it an hour or so for the image to be updated in your browser cache).
