I've noticed that until about a week ago, whenever I opened any level on level leaderboard and clicked on submit run, the "Level" was automatically chosen for me, but now it always chooses the first one on the leaderboard and if you don't change it manually you may end up submitting a run for a completely different level.

EDIT: Also, would it be possible to add sorting by name and number of runs of level leaderboard? Just an option for mods.

EDIT: Another thing I thought of - add Follow button to game series.

Originally posted by Molotok I tried to submit a run to the Hitman Codename 47 IL leaderboard, but it says "this category doesn´t exist", although it obviously does or should.

Fixed.

Not sure I get what you mean, could you elaborate?

There's currently no follow button for series as I first want to be a bit more clear on the status of a future update to the series system (which may or may not break following series, I don't want to add something that'd be removed again a bit later).
In any case, what were your thoughts about following series, would it do anything different than following games?

What I mean is to be able to sort the levels on level leaderboard by their names or how many runs they contain. If you have a really long list of levels on level leaderboard (eg: fan made levels), it's really painful to move each level to their desired position on the leaderboard since you can only move it by ONE position up or down. Currently there is no sorting. Or maybe give each level an ID number that mods could change. The best would be of course drag&drop, but I have no idea if that's real in your system.

Follow button wouldn't do anything differently than following specific games. It's just a comfort thing.

My newly validated runs aren't shown in my notifications and it's not a misc category 😕

"Obscure Platforms" is not obvious enough and the UI for platform selection should be updated to remove the need for that construct.

Realistic reasons:
1. The obscurity of a platform is presumably arbitrary (if static) or based on an arbitrary point (if dynamic).
2. It's annoying when setting up a game, looking for the platform, then thinking it must be under another name, then remembering the "Obscure platforms" UI.
3. The resulting UI from hiding "Obscure platforms" is as complex as if it had twice the number of platforms already shown.
4. Saving space on vertical scrolling in a page most people don't see or often use seems like a bizarre choice.

Whiny reasons:
My favorite platform is obscure, so the above happens every single time.

I stopped getting emails for any of the things I was supposed to be getting emails for. For a week now no emails for submitted runs to verify or anything.

I have a few remarks regarding the "Streams" page. As far as I can tell, the only way to not show up on that tab when streaming aside from simply not having the stream listed under settings is to put [nosrl] in the title. For me, I'd rather not remove my stream from my profile whenever I'm streaming non-speedrunning-related content, but putting [nosrl] in the title is also a bit undesirable to me, partially due to the minor clutter it adds, but mostly since I'm not on SRL to begin with. It might be nice to have a togglable option under "Settings" like "Appear in 'Streams' tab" that would default to being checked for existing users or something along those lines. Granted, that's not the most elegant thing in the world, either. Something like "Only appear in 'Streams' tab while playing <games>" or "Don't appear in 'Streams' tab while playing <games>" might be nicer since it'd require less maintenance, but I could also envision something like that being more of a hassle to implement (I admittedly know nothing about how much of a pain any of this stuff would be).

Emails and notifications are hopefully fixed now.

Morgan: Pac handled the deletion, we still need an extra button added for that.

Fly_Amanita: The simple thought should be feasible I imagine. There's been a lot of bugfixes this week, so it might be a bit before we're back to minor feature addition.

I'm still getting notifications when a new run is awaiting verification in a game I moderate, even though I've unchecked the box and saved a few times to make sure.

I love the site if you ask me 😛

when i know about speedrun.com i thought ... ''fake copy of slr?'' but then i see a couple of streamers dudes i used to watch in a long time so i figure it out its just another speed run legit site 😃.

this one have an unique thing besides the other speedrun sites :3

things i really would like to see on this site to be added ''add EU game version cover'' since certain games wasn't only maded in NA/JP so 😛 pretty much sometimes the JP space to fill will be in blank and leaving you unable to yeah ... let know the community X game was made only for NA/EU and not NA/JP.

^^ pretty much talking about a recent game it got approved here 😛 ''Body Harvest''.

Out of curiosity, how long is normally for game suggestions being approved or denied? I submitted a game I think 4 days ago (Dr. Mario Online Rx for the Dr. Mario series), and haven't heard anything yet. It might have been declined but I'm not sure where to go to check on statuses of these things.

I'm not trying to rush it, my question is more asking how to check these things so I don't have to ask xD

BlueInfinity22: I added it yesterday. If you didn't get a notification in the last 24 hours then they would appear to have broken again >_>; Could you confirm whether or not you have a notification?

I try not to let the game request queue get behind more than about 5 days max.

Regarding game covers: The modular solution would be to have an arbitrary number of game covers for an arbitrary number of versions, but there's probably other more useful things to work on for now.

The site is always getting improvements and I like this, but is it possible to implement a "report user" button? ATM we can't stop people form posting to forums or whatnot, and the X6 forums is getting bombarded with indecent threads / replies

I think the longer term solution to this is to modularize forum bans (e.g. 1 month ban, 2 month ban, unlimited ban) and then get an automated queue in place and get sitewide forum moderator privileges to help handle things. It's difficult to have 24/7 moderators without getting quite a few people involved.

Then we probably need something to handle people spamming reporting of users.

It's a nice idea, kirkq; it would probably helps games forums.

A request: search by country.

For countries with small speedrunning communities (like Chile) I think it would be very useful to be able to find all the users from that country. Right now I just do a Google advanced search for this, but I'd love to just click a country name here and get a list of all users from that country.
