It would be cool if you could blacklist games in your settings, so they no longer appear on the frontpage. Would this be complicated to implement?

"It would be cool if you could blacklist games in your settings, so they no longer appear on the frontpage. Would this be complicated to implement?"
Blacklist games ? Do you think there are too many games on the front page that you can't afford to see those ?
I mean, the front page has a decent flow and scroll really fast. I think it's faster to follow the games you want and set the frontpage to be full of games you follow.
Unless I forgot something, I don't see exactly why blacklisting games is good.

I like the normal frontpage because you can find new games and communities, I only follow one game where I'm the super-mod. Not seeing games that you know, but don't care about, would improve it in my opinion.

This looks very complicated.
I assume it's possible to do that since you can follow a game, you can "anti-follow", (meaning blacklisting) this game I guess.

andypanther: This is related to an update that planning is being done for (no ETA currently.) Basically we want to add certain tags to games such that they do or don't show up in the search bar based on user settings or selections. We're not sure if individual user blacklists will be scalable enough with the current front page though. User customization is generally a good thing (like in this case) when it's not ridiculously specific functionality.

FingerQuick: I can't gauge the effort required to support that, one of the other admins would have to comment.

It seems as if you tie a run that is obsoleted by that person having a faster PB on another version, your place number on the leaderboards is replaced with a "-" as well, even though you should have a number. In this case, CpKaka has 10th place, but it just appears as a dash since he tied siglemic's N64 time.

Is it possible for the "Times in milliseconds" game option to be enabled for the Level Leaderboard only instead of automatically adding it to the Level and Full-game Leaderboards?

Minor thing, but it'd be nice to have "nationality" and "location" as two separate things in the profile, so that if I moved to Afghanistan then people wouldn't be asking "WOAH YOU'RE FROM AFGHANISTAN??", it'd just say that I'm from [country] and that my location is [place]. I got that when I changed my location to Egypt for a day while I was there. Even though I'm from there, I live in the US, so while that question with "EGYPT" replacing "AFGHANISTAN" would be true, it still confuses people.

The intent is that the country answer the question "Where are you from or where do you reside?" Don't take the word "Location" too literally.

This is neither current location necessarily, nor is it necessarily nationality or citizenship. It's whatever you wanna call home 🙂

Can the game names please not be case-sensitive? It's annoying to keep seeing "page not found" even though it's abundantly clear which leaderboards I'm trying to access.

there was some rule about emotes not overwriting words in sentences right?

I was discussing about general speedrunning with Carabaf and Kimerafusion yesterday and we talked about the censorship applied to speedruns.
I'ld like to discuss about nude mods in speedruns or uncensored version in speedrunning.
It's obvious that nude mods increases the amount of viewers of your channel.
However, it's sad to see this kind of content on speedrun.com
I mean, it's not like it's a part of the game, you have to download it from somewhere else.
Example : All Zibang's WR have nude mod ( http://www.speedrun.com/huniepop ) and it's a bit weird to showcase that kind of content in a front page for example.

Would be easier to just get rid of these shitty games tbh

I don't see a big deal, are there any six year olds on speedrun.com?

@zewing : "Would be easier to just get rid of these shitty games tbh"
Define "shitty games".
How could a game be shit to speedrun ?
If there is a community to run it, then it has some speedrun potential.

Normally " shitty Games " has not a community so Free WR i guess OpieOP

 
  andypantherandypanther

I don't care about nudity at all, I never understood the problem that society has with it. If a an actual speedgame has it, who cares; if the game is just a shitty meme, get rid of it. Just treat those games like all other games.

Also, regarding Huniepop: Wasn't it that the nude mod is more or less an official download, they just couldn't release it with the game?

Still curious if its possible to implement at some point in the future?


Perhaps, but it would probably be kinda messy, so only if there's a lot of demand for it.

Fixed.

While I agree that was a bad design choice, it's not something that can easily be undone at this point.

Added to the blacklist, thanks.

Would it be possible to have an option to only show the fastest run from a category on your personal run page if you have runs on different versions?
e.x.: I only want my fastest 16 Star time to be shown here, even though it shows both my N64[Emu] and WiiVC times.
