It's a good idea, what sort of form would this take?

Other ideas down the line:

1: I want game moderation to have logs visible only to game moderators eventually, which would take the form of "Person X did Thing Y" each time a logged action took place, such as adding/removing runs, categories, themes, moderators, etc.

2: I'm hoping the run submission process does support a more back and forth behavior eventually. It seems like the user should control the user's run, but the moderator controls whether or not the run goes on the board, so runs not on boards could still be personally tracked by the user (think PBs), just not tracked by the board itself. I foresee this being further down the line though.

Maybe we could get some generic notes field only visible to the user and the moderator as a temporary solution, I'm unsure the logisitics of that under the current system.

Not sure if this has been requested, but would a feature where we can personalize our info tab with text be feasable in the future? That way we can put a little extra something there to make our pages more unique.

I think the 100% categories for games that define 100% themselves in a different way than the community would have defined them if it weren't for the game itself defining 100% should be renamed "Game 100%" and there should be a new category called 100% where the requirements are a proper 100%. Some such games are Donkey Kong Country 2 and Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. The requirements of Donkey Kong country 2 should be all 68 DK coins, all 40 feathers, and all pieces of advice from Cranky and Wrinkly, and all minigames including the one from Klubba's Kiosk despite the fact that you don't need to do to get all the DK coins, and completion of the game but beating King K Rool again in the lost world shouldn't be required unless the category is instead called 101%. If a new glitch is found where you can fill your scrap book without getting all 40 pictures, the requirements should change to list all 40 pictures as well and that each one has to be gotten the proper way and not glitched into you having it. It's category that's currently called 101% should be renamed "Game 101%". The requirements for Donkey Kong Country Returns 100% and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze 100% should be all kong letters and puzzle pieces and Game 100% should be just all kong letters.

I think you missed listing the Alice in Wonderland 2010 game. I think it's called Disney Alice in Wonderland, unlike the earlier game of Walt Disney's Alice in Wonderland.

You should take up the 100% issues with the games' moderators either by contacting them directly via Twitch, Twitter, etc. or on the games' forums.

The site doesn't standardize category definitions. That's left to individual game's moderators. Games aren't listed unless they have a run, or in some cases series moderators add them to complete a series.

I give this comment the Creative Commons Attribution Share-a-like 3.0 unported license. In response to blahpy's comment about somebody having cheated and submitted a TAS, you should invent a game recording device like that described in http://speedydeletion.wikia.com/wiki/Game_recording_device which I wrote myself. There should also be a new file type where only the only way to make an image or a video be that file type is to upload it by one of the approved methods and it can't be edited without changing to another file type and no other file type can be converted to that file type. One approved processes should be uploading a raw image from a digital camera. Another approved process should be uploading an uncut video from that game recording device. Some day, maybe you could announce the availability of that game recording device and that after a certain date, you will only accept videos of that file type. That way, people can't cheat and submit a segmented run or a TAS. Once you invent that game recording device or file type, you may not stop other companies from manufacturing a similar device and selling it and you may not stop other people from inventing a similar file type. I wonder whether if the Government made copyright laws less strict and granted collaborative researchers permission to predict what the government would have allowed them to do if they were capable of making such complex rules, useful research in all areas including figuring out researching techniques would no longer be slown down by the presence of ideas that have been thought of and patented and when ever they figured something out by themselves from being a amrt research group that's good at thinking of ideas, they wouldn't have to do a long slow patent search to make sure a similar idea wasn't already thought of and patented. Maybe if those copyright laws become less strict, you'll gain more in the long run from Harvard Catalyst research not being slown down than you'll lose from not being allowed to stop other people from using my ideas of the game recording device and file type.

I see that there's a website http://www.zeldaspeedruns.com/ and a corresponding wikia for giving people the information to write a new route from at http://zeldaspeedruns.wikia.com/wiki/Zelda_Speed_Runs_Wiki. Can you create a similar 2 websites for each of the other serieses in http://zeldawiki.org/Community:Nintendo_Independent_Wiki_Alliance?

 
  PurpleSunPurpleSun

I don't even see the point. ZeldaSpeedRuns and Speedrun.com are totally independent so why are you asking us instead of them ?

I looked at http://www.speedrunstats.com and checked for shortest WR run.
I found this run here : http://www.speedrun.com/run/pm35424y
I don't know the game or the run but it seem highly impossible to finish this in 1 second.

 
  Trollbear666Trollbear666

I think its one of those games that would like a highscore board instead of a time board.

 
  PackSciencesPackSciences

Yeah, probably.
Also, I checked longest WR runs (well not watched all the videos entirely :p)
This user screwed like a bit of the longest WR runs with his "99hr" runs : http://www.speedrun.com/user/sellz90

This one isn't a fake run, the 100% Baten Kaitos run requires the shampoo which is unlocked after a literal week on the in-game timer.
