@wartabwartab In the settings --> Front Page,
you can set "GSA stream" to be hidden.

@OxkniferOxknifer There's really no need to "bump" old requests. If it's been posted in this thread we're aware of it.

Hey Shiken! I see no issue with reposting. Others who haven't been to this forum may be interested to know what ideas are still floating around. Site mods can gauge which ideas are still worth pursuing based on ongoing interest. Spreading ideas can foster creativity and can lead to better or refined ideas :))

You can also do that outside of that thread @OxkniferOxknifer This is not the place to discuss existing ideas or make them more "refined" as you like to call it. It's a place to centralize them. Discussing existing ideas here will only lead to admins having to look back on what was discussed and then piecing together the discussion into one exact idea which is not preferable at all.
Like Shiken said, if it's been posted we are aware of it.

Is there a possibility the site will receive other methods of donation, for example by bank transfer?

Please make Night Mode the default option.
Quite a few board moderation teams put a lot of work into custom themes and currently all unregistered users (or even registered ones who simply don't know about the option) miss out on those.

I didn't even realized that board themes are not showing on light mode.

"Be brutal."

Okay, I hate the max-width constraint being applied to the level leaderboards. I absolutely hate it. It looks terrible, and it's not helpful at all for games with lots of categories. Look at the leaderboard for Star Wars: Rogue Squadron: https://www.speedrun.com/rogue1/individual_levels

With my 1080p monitor, there is as much whitespace on either side of the table as there is actual table, and we have almost as many columns cut off the side of the screen as we have visible columns. It's not 'trendy' or 'hip' to have tiny, minimalist designs. You just end up with ugly-ass scrollbars at the bottom of the screen. Imagine a website in 2020 having horizontal scrollbars. For crying out loud, most users don't even have mice with horizontal scroll wheels.

We have to tell our users to scroll all the way to the bottom of the page, past over thirty levels, to find the scrollbar at the bottom, just so that they can drag it over to look at the other half of the table, and then scroll back up to the top of the page to see what they were just trying to look at. And God-forbid someone would want to compare a time on one side of the table to a time on the other side of the table.

Please, for the love of good design, let us make the table wider. Let us fill that whitespace with actual useful information. Let us just once see the entire table in one glorious wide-screen view.

Look at it: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/336778244747427841/689479604045480074/temp.png

Look at how magnificant that is. Look at how much information we can take in at once. Look at how there's no scrollbar at the bottom of the table. It's majestic. It's such a perfect size for the number of categories we have: it was made to be.

But no. You decided for no logical reason that the table should only be 1140px wide. Why? What on God's green earth could make you think that the table should never be wider than 1140px? What good does that do? Who does that serve? Did you really think that no table of individual levels would ever be wider than that? Or did you sit down at a UI meeting and make the conscious decision to force tables to have horizontal scrollbars like sociopaths hellbent on creating as much frustration as humanly possible with a single webpage?

If you don't fix this, I'm going to go and learn how to make a Google Chrome extension just for the sole purpose of changing one line in your CSS from '1140px' to '100%.'

I love you; don't hate me; you said to be brutal. Please take this seriously though: it really is super frustrating, and it really does upset me and other members of the Rogue Squadron community.

Could we have the option for multiple IL leaderboards like maybe switch another with a tab. Because one thing I did recently was to have Soulcalibur have the character ILs as the main one. So people can run the characters they like and compete with others. However later games added different modes like SC III with Mission Mode and SC IV Tower of Lost Souls. Having those as the other tab would be nice.

i think a hex color picker for usernames would be nice because it could lead to more personalization which could be very great for this site.

@GHGH The problem with a Hex color picker, or in general granting users complete control over their username coloring is how it will likely result in poor blending with the site's night and light mode and specific site themes. Some user colors, such as dark grey or a complete black color tend to stand out a lot in light mode, which on it's own isn't always the best approach, but colors like those can also become near invisible in night mode. Another situation is that is allows using very bright/vibrant colors which can easily become invisible on bright backgrounds. Hence the current available colors are mostly kind of saturated to assure it mostly blends well enough with the majority of the site's themes and color schemes. Knowing that, limiting user coloring to assure that a username will be blended properly on at least the majority of the site is a more preferable situation.

This comes up every few months, but subcategory url routing or a better way to organize leaderboards seems like it should be among the priorities.

I think allowing variables to not have to be one or all is a bug that should be fixed since half the requests are about that, but I'm not the first to mention this, obviously.

@ImaproshamanImaproshaman No, it is not a bug, the site is working entirely as intended. But yes, we are aware that this would be a valuable improvement.

Is it possible for you to add a way to see obsolete IL runs on user pages? I don't understand why this still isn't a thing.

There should be an option to search by developer, in the same way that you can click on a series. Also there should be more openness high score based games I feel, even though it's called Speedrun.com lol

@poopseypoopsey Definitely not a good idea.
The like button is only meant to encourage positivity towards each other's posts. Having a dislike button just works the other way around.
Showing an x amount of dislikes on someone their post which could otherwise be a perfectly fine post would just disprove it, likely unfairly most of the times.

Like/Dislike/Upvote/Downvote systems are, in theory, a good idea but frequently badly executed. Not because of an issue with them being implemented, but because they're misused for the purpose they're meant to serve.
