Forums  /  The Site  /  Leaderboard deletion (Locked)

I messaged Pac about this a few days ago but he hasn't responded and I realised someone else might be able to help me.

A few days ago I was looking at the ROM Hacks section of a leaderboard I moderated (You Have To Win The Game, the non-Steam version). I was on the Add ROM hack page, but I had nothing to add and I hit "Delete Game" up the top right. This deleted the leaderboard. I checked the other leaderboard I moderated (the Steam version), and on the same page it only said "Delete". Just thought I should make this report, as it seems someone else could easily make the same mistake.

By the way, if there is any way of recovering the leaderboard (the times still exist on the runners' profiles, from the looks of things), that would be great.
EDIT: I don't really care if the theme can't be recovered, but I'd like it if the rules, categories and times coud be.


I've restored the leaderboard, you'll have to check the settings in editgame though if you changed them, they've been reset to default.

The delete button on the Add page has been removed, sorry about the problems.


While you're at it, are you sure it's a good idea to even have a delete button at all?


Thanks for the help. c:

While a delete button can be useful on many occasions, it shouldn't actually delete anything, just hide it.
Changing everything so that it works like that takes slightly more than 5 minutes though and requires more careful planning, so it makes more sense to do that as part of one of the bigger updates that are in the works.
