Don't know if this has been suggested in the past, but a page for 'marathons' like streams has 'streams'.

Choices for it could be between showing upcoming marathons (maybe cut off is 30 days) or only showing currently ongoing marathons (so shows marathons only currently underway).

The alternate to the first suggestion is to perhaps add an additional box in marathons edit form, akin to "submissions opening date", for which they can specify exactly what date people can start submitting to the marathon, and this marathons page can be used as a way for users to easily identify which marathons they can get their runs submitted to.

Perhaps a slider (similar to 'has a PB' in streams) that allows you to toggle between "submissions opening date" and "currently underway".

I don't feel like SRC has ever really been a hub for marathons and a lot of the locating aspect comes off site from places such as twitter, discords or people stick to horaro. Being able to have a central place on site solely to look for marathons accepting submissions and/or marathons currently going on, would help massively, and help avoid all the bloat of the marathons that expired a long time ago.

Ability to set a Discord link for a series that is set as the default for all games in the series.
In case the link expires or becomes unusable, this makes the link easy to change for all games in the series.
(Of course, still allow users to change this discord link to something else if needed)

Enhanced tagging: Now that messages are active, I've realized it would be really nice to type "@" and then have that pull up a search bar that functions exactly like the search bar in the header. There you can search for any user, game, series, or marathon and include that in your message or forum post. So instead of navigating away from the page to search for the name of a leaderboard and copy the URL to paste into my message, I can just type it out right there.

Ability to set which Level each Individual Level category applies to in a similar way to how you can with Variables would be nice. At the moment it's very hard to get clean looking IL leaderboards if you have some categories that are only relevant for specific levels. You have to set everything as variables and ignore the category field completely.

This is probably a rare scenario, but at this very moment I would like a way to move full game categories into ILs.
The next bet thing would be to edit a submitted run from a full game category to an IL category, but that is also not possible.

I want to reiterate the idea given a while ago in this thread for "Community sum of bests" for IL runs. I think it would be a very neat little thing to add and would encourage friendly competition in the community & I have been thinking about it ever since I've seen it.

Hey. I would like regular and super moderators can be able to edit nicknames in "Guides"
Example: user changed nickname, srcom system changed his nickname in Guides as random numbers, why in this case I can’t change nicknames, as is done in Resources?

I want the possibility to not being ignored in the forum when requesting to remove Webgame tag to some games because I mod some series with one "WebGame" game that is shown as "unofficial" game and the other games that are not. Same for other single games that got accepted to speedrun.com, some being "WebGame" and other being not.

The colour of links needs to be uncoupled from LB themes. Thankfully the design overhaul has made white the default colour for all plain text, however if you want a clean white font as your leaderboard's primary colour, you cannot distinguish links from plain text in forum posts or guides. The easiest solution would be to just give some distinguishable colour to all links globally on the site. Otherwise, one could add an extra setting on the LB themes to choose a colour for links in posts.

Can the Front Page settings have the ability to natively filter games by system?

It shows "Followed Games" at the top, but I basically only run Retro games and almost exclusively NES. Currently my front page shows all sorts of games, most of them I'm not interested in.

I'd really appreciate being able to see the WR History data for any category in list form as well as a graph. Essentially, a filter that can be applied that only shows previous WRs in that category, obsolete or not.

Option to display a "show all runs" subcategory, similarly to not filtering a variable

Option to set runs without video to hidden by default, similarly to emulator

Option to hide variables from the main leaderboard page, so they can be used for filtering or for displaying data about runs on the run page without taking up space

Would it be possible to get an update to the level leaderboard to select which variables are active for levels? As an example say level 2 can't be done by X hero or character. Instead of creating various variables for each level can we set which ones can be done for the levels?

I'm sure this has been recommended before, but in case it hasn't/has been forgotten, I think it'd be awesome if we could rearrange the runs we have in our profile.

I know it might sound stupid, but many of us run a lot of games and use our profile link when people ask our PB's etc. Personally, I like having my bread and butter games up top for people to see first. In instances where I run an obscure game or two when I'm goofing off in between B&B games, my good runs can get buried, forcing a new PB to get them back to the top.

Though my reason admittedly doesn't seem worthy to have other people do work to achieve, I'm sure there are more people who, for whatever their reason is, would like to see the same option.

Love,
Todd

Embed links for streamable and bitchute videos.

They get used a lot more these days, especially streamable.

@TreyaTreya Having Streamables as video evidence for run submissions does not appear exactly.. reliable when it comes to dedicated video uploads.

From their FAQ:
`How long are my videos stored?
Videos that are inactive for 3 months are deleted in order to make room for new content. For paid plans, videos are deleted only upon request.`

Although its not explicitly stated in this FAQ, it vaguely implies that videos that are accessed infrequently (unclear what the exact definition of that is) are just randomly deleted to create more storage space.
Source: https:/​/​www.​reddit.​com/​r/​Streamable/​comments/​90jsyg/​posts_about_disappearing_videos_removed/​ (and some rather angry users)

That is.. concerning.. when using a Streamable as a platform for a submission video because of this. Boards that have video proof enabled should keep extra focus on what platform is used for a particular submission, such as checking if Twitch VOD's are saved as Highlights, since video evidence uploaded without highlight could disappear due to the same archive process. Although in no way you'd know for certain that platforms wouldn't just delete stuff randomly since Twitch in the past did manage to mess and delete VOD's that were supposed to be saved indefinitely, but it is at least an indication that their service even provides long time storage opposed to Streamable.
