@st4rwave

uh i glanced at whatever cuphead is and my guess would be someone requested the game, then took on a malicious moderator by accident (or intentional, idk).

I believe you need a recorded run to request a game so there's only so much the site admins can do to keep the idiots out.

Highly anticipated games sometimes get added before the final release don't they?

When I submit a run, shouldn't I get redirected to that runs page instead of the leaderboards? It's kinda awkward when you want to review what you put in, because the run is now hidden away under Pending Actions -> View all. There is also no Pending Actions sublink for only the runs you've submitted yourself and are still awaiting verification. Getting send to the leaderboards shows me the current board with my old run. Another idea would be a row with special styling indicating where the current not yet verified run ¤would be¤ once it's verified, which would then of course also link to the run, making the redirect actually useful.

EDIT: Thinking about it, the 2nd idea would probably require anchors for larger leaderboards, to avoid having to scroll all over the board to find your current and submitted runs.

As someone who Doesn't always have time to do longer runs, I was hoping to find a game which i could complete within a reasonable timescale. however, as far as I can see, there is no way to filter out games/categories which last over 1 hour, for example. I know it might be a problem to figure out the logistics of how a time for a game should be measured, but I think a feature like this would be useful for people like me, who simply don't have enough time on their hands. (perhaps the time for a category could be the average of each runners first run of the category +20%, with the shortest category for a game being used as the game's expected time)

A while back I had Dragon Power added as a game not knowing it was already on the site as its Famicom title Dragon Ball Shenron no Nazo. Requesting that Dragon Power be deleted for redundancy since the other leaderboard has a category for the US version anyway

Since it looks like the site admins are looking to put up some general guidelines for adding games I thought I would suggest a list of questionable categories I've found on the site so far
They are on this list either because
1) the game is unofficial and not notable enough for inclusion
2) the category is some thing totally arbitrary yet listed as a "full-game run"
3) the category is a high score table rather than a speedrun table (I know this isn't outright banned at the moment but I thought I would keep a list just in case)

Seriously when is stupid shit like this going to be removed from the site?

This is a joke.

Mitsunee: It specifically directs to pending actions so that users know where they can monitor their run status.

Drakodan: The site has a lot of ambiguity with what should and shouldn't be tracked and what should and shouldn't be deleted. What would you propose the criteria for whether or not a webgame be tracked be? For a parallel discussion, even steam has lowered the bar for what they track extremely within the last couple years. Should we track all steam games? What should be the criteria for whether or not something is tracked? What should be added, what should be on the front page, what should be searchable, what should we delete? I'm not looking to be facetious here, it's difficult to quantify. Currently, webgames don't show up on the front page if they're marked as webgames, which these weren't but are now. We can discuss privately if you want, either way.

This may have already been suggested, but I think it would be a good idea to allow comments on PB videos. It would be a direct way to share excitement on the site as well as ask specific questions related to the video. I'm aware this can all be done in the forums on each page, but to have it on each PB video page would be more direct. Thanks.

@RandomEffekt

Most people submit runs with video from twitch or youtube, both of which allow commenting on videos.

They do if you're not logged in. I have a fix ready for it but I don't want to push it until there's a whitelist for certain tags.

RandomEffect, the general consensus is that that would create a moderation nightmare. When you allow that, it’s an open invite for people to spam who knows what on every video or it could be used for harassment towards some runners.

The same way it’s hard to have a coherent conversation in YT comments, it would be hard to have one in these comments as well. If someone ends up having questions, it’s best to direct them to a discord or something to provide them help.

Scanned this thread up to two years ago to add nearly 100 suggestions to a todo list. Now we have a quick reference as to what could be implemented.

1. Forum search
2. Following game series
3. Remove the ability to delete your own posts unless you're a mod.
4. Add a note to an edited post at the bottom that tells you when and why it was edited.
5. Pinging other users to notify them that you've responded to their forum post.

There's a little problem with watching runs. Before you actually start watching the run ,you can't see if the said run is pre-recorded or streamed and whether it has no commentary, post-game commentary or useless (live) commentary.

It would be nice to have this represented as icons or something.
