The order in which platforms show-up on a game's page and when submitting a run seems to be very confusing and arbitrary. They're not ordered alphabetically like on the Edit Game page or when searching for a specific platform and they're not ordered by platform release date either. This is particularly an issue for many cross-platform games released on PC, where PC is the almost always both the fastest and most common platform. Either having a consistent alphabetical order across the site or preferably allowing moderators to set a Default platform would be appreciated, thanks.

Heck yeah, Xero. Bumping primary platforms: https://www.speedrun.com/post/ac5y4
I think it would be great to allow mods to reorder of platforms and have the default order alphabetical.

Hi, dumb request, but, can we add the city Tucson under city in profile info. It's like the 33rd largest city in the USA despite being the second largest in AZ.

Thanks.

not sure if anyone else gets annoyed by this or if it is just me, but i'm a verifier for smb1/smbce and often get submissions with milliseconds attached. however, due to how the submissions work on the site, if someone only types in 2 digits in the milliseconds column (ex. 5:20.84) the run gets submitted as 5:20.084 instead of 5:20.840, which i find somewhat annoying as i would have to manually clear milliseconds altogether at that time range. i understand that for either game, i would most likely have to alter something in the submission anyway, so this essentially means nothing, but i'd like to know if this is something that needs to be fixed or not.

thanks,

Allow users to block a game, series, or platform from appearing on the homepage.

It would be nice to be able to edit pending game requests: https://www.speedrun.com/the_site/thread/qtcht

I understand the intent but it's probably better if game requests gain some kind of method for requesters to -submit- changes to their pending game requests instead which could then get accepted by site staff before the game request is actually altered. Requesters editing their pending game requests directly could potentially lead to issues for site staff.

Can we please get the ability to see the IL leaderboard table with different variables selected? Right now, it only shows whichever variables are the default, which is a massive problem if the variable is the platform one plays on. It means that the table only shows users on—for example—PC, and doesn't show any of the users on N64.

Frankly, this is a massive oversight, especially given that the functionality already exists on the pages for each individual level and full-game runs. It's rather demoralizing for our players to see none of their names on the leaderboard table, even though they are WR holders in their respective categories. Below are mockup screenshots to show just how important this is. There is an entirely different group of players for whom this page is not only useless, but for whom it fails to represent, because it has no variable selector. Something has to be done about this.

On top of DrYoshiyahu's post I think the layout could be improved by adding the element style "max-width: 100%" for the container class. It uses the screen space better than the current default. I created a google chrome extension to automatically apply this change along with some coloring (to help with visibility). If we could get a variable selector like yoshi for the level leaderboard and this max-width change we would be grateful.

Here is a gallery of images of what I'm describing https://imgur.com/a/tGeAlCI

How about some sort of "Game Language" identifier? similar to how Console Region flags work right now. many consoles aren't region locked, and especially in, say, europe, there's a lot of languages that differ immensely for many games.

@QueenVanrænQueenVanræn If runners want to track the language used for a game, the moderators can add a "language" variable to the leaderboard. I imagine that if a certain language can save a lot of time compared to others (for example Chinese because it makes dialogues faster), most runners will run with that language anyway.

If the "Default timing method" is changed to In-Game Time, then that column should be first, instead of Real Time.

Could we see at least one more place rank icon for 5th place? Reasoning is there's never anyone making top 4 of anything it's always top 5 or 10.

Could we please get the ability to set full-game runs to be sorted by real time and IL runs sorted by in-game time? It's crazy that they have to be the same.

I've done cooperative speedruns with a lot of different people and every PB I've had with them is displayed in my profile. I want to be able to make it show only my actual PB, otherwise it looks very messy and shows a lot of unnecessary information

Bumping an old suggestion about allowing subcategories to be descending.

I think it'd be good to allow people with accounts that are less than a week old to be able to see messages sent to them on the site. Since messaging on the site became a thing, I've had a handful of new people that I've needed to message but can't, whether it be for asking them a question/establishing a dialogue with them or needing to give them a heads up on a matter that directly affects them and their submissions. These incidents I've had are with people that haven't put any social media on their profiles and submit with either a platform I can't contact them on/I have to make my own account (like Instagram) or go with picture proof. I can't think of a downside to at least having new users be able to see a message to try and inform them about something and/or send them my own contact info to get in touch with and it'd be nice to not have to jump through extra hoops to get a hold of a new user.

Is this where I go to openly whine about the fact that my game request hasn't been answered yet after more than 7 days?

No? Well I want do something, damnit. 🙁

I can't imagine someone else hasn't suggested this before but it would be great to have an way to only allow centiseconds instead of milliseconds for submissions.
95% of the submissions I get to Mario Kart 64 with milliseconds on them end up with a 0 in the front of them that has to be edited because the person submitting only submitted 2 digits.
For example 40'00"55 turns into 40'00"055 since the input box is milliseconds

An option to have a subcategory tab that shows all runs from that category. The stuff the Paper Mario community is having to deal with to overcome this site’s lack of that basic functionally is doing is utterly ridiculous.
