Thread: Request leaderboard moderation (Read the first post before posting!)

Started by: DaravaeDaravae

Hey! As a mod of Anno 1404 I'd like to make some changes to the Anno series page (add a theme, replace the terrible current logo, add a link to the community discord). However, it seems that the series page currently has no moderators (although I'm not sure since when) so I was hoping you could help me out!

Today we added a page for ROM hacks of Prince of Persia SNES so if a content mod could label it as such that would be great!

Thread: discuss possible new category

Started by: Akuma_apnAkuma_apn

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't sprite manipulation and kill button a consequence of warping? (Meaning that disallowing warping, as it is done in the current rules, does already imply that none of these other glitches are possible?) Thus Any% (Warp) would already be the same as Any% (Glitchless), at least given our current knowledge of glitches in this game.
Either way I would be okay with renaming the category to Glitchless or NMG while maintaining the current ruleset.

Thread: "PoPRuns 4: Cheers, mate!" is on

Started by: tocaloni1tocaloni1

Original discord announcement from 7eraser7:

"Hello!

This is the moment everyone was waiting for: the PoPRuns 4 announcement!
This year will be special since it'll be hybrid (so a mixture of "at my place" and "online") so don't worry if you can't come, you'll still be able to participate!
The marathon will take place from November 15th to November 17th, probably with a break during the night for europeans. 🇪🇺

If you want to plan a trip to my place, look up how to go to Champigny-Sur-Marne or just Paris will be enough (a 1h trip with public transport).
Around 4 people can sleep at my place without bringing anything (I have two couches that can become a 2 person-bed). If there is already more than 4 people who registered for on-site but you want to attend and sleep at my place as well you can just bring an air mattress.
If there are more than 5/6 people coming, I think we need to look into nearby hostels or Airbnbs as otherwise it'll probably be too crowded. Worst case scenario we can just make toca sleep in my car but you know, it's not the best.
If you want to (or consider) attending on-site but you're not sure whether you can, please send me a pm so I can keep a list and start planning. There will be a channel just for people coming irl (#popruns4-irl).

For the submissions, we will be using a new platform named Oengus.io. It's still a beta but it's pretty stable---if you encounter any bug you can just tell me and I can contact the developer directly. Your submissions will be limited to 5 games and 3 categories per game. If you need more just talk to someone from the orga crew and we will see if there is a need to adjust it. You can connect to the submission website to your discord account which will be easier for us to find you and what you submitted.

Submissions will be live from September 19th (so right now) to September 30th 23:59:59/11:59pm CEST.
A schedule should be posted at latest on Sunday 6th October.

Thread: Incorrect date on world record run

Started by: tocaloni1tocaloni1

When restructuring the leaderboard it seems that a mistake happened, more precisely in the "Any% - Game Boy Advance" category. The world record of epicdudeguy of 1h21m39s took place on March 27, 2015 and not on September 5th, 2019 as the current submissino claims. I hope this will be fixed soon enough @GustavoPredadorGustavoPredador

Thread: Fake print !

Started by: AnutimAnutim

Beg my pardon? The Any % run in question quite evidently, and I want to say beyond belief, features an invalid piece of evidence. In my opinion Anutim has brought everything of necessity to the table and the above response is but outrageous. I would like to request for @epicdudeguyepicdudeguy to be removed from the list of moderators for this leaderboard. In turn I volunteer to take over this board, after all I had tons of fun with game as a kid hence I believe to be a suitable replacement. My first official act as new moderator will be to prohibit @rythinrythin from participating in these leaderboards indefinitely or at least for a week until she thought over her inexpressible actions. Warm greetings.

Thread: request new routes

Started by: Akuma_apnAkuma_apn

Actually I agree with Skino's (second-to-)last post; the subdivision "Gate Skip (=Any%) / No Gate Skip / No Warp" is justified by how much runs of these categories differ and is something I agree with. But to me there is no point in having specified subcategores for warps to different levels as

• those make the board less overseeable
• routes change all the time. Having separate (sub)categories for outdated, slower routes which do not differ in the glitches they use is not the point of a speedrun leaderboard.

Of course there is no objective measure here; this is solely my opinion on what a leaderboard on this site should be there for and anybody else is entitled to have a different opinion on this matter.

This sounds quite reasonable, I just implemented your suggestions. If some wording in the ruleset is too ambiguous or enhanceable in another way, feel free to tell us.

Congratulations again on finding this new warp!

Thread: request new routes

Started by: Akuma_apnAkuma_apn

Correct me if I'm mistaken: the current Any% (No Gate Skip) route equals what you describe as "Warp 8" given said route warps to level 8? So the only thing that gets added really is Warp 16?

Another thing I'd be fond of, given the growing number of warp routes, is to simply have Any% (with Warp 16 route) and Any% (No Warp) as main categories, and all other warp categories/routes become miscellaneous. Although I agree on the respective runs being features in different categories, I'd find it rather confusing for someone who first visits this leaderboard and sees
• Any% (Warp 16)
• Any% (Warp 6)
• Any% (Warp 8​)
• Any% (No Warp)
To visualize my idea, I (at least temporarily) changed the boards accordingly in this regard.

Thread: Follow up on categories & filtering

Started by: Akuma_apnAkuma_apn

Right, so the idea is that for the Any% runs one has to choose the route that was taken:

Of course, one may expand this list whenever there are new, meaningful warp routes which differ significantly from the current ones.

For the filtering; via the filter menu on the board it's possible to only display the runs one cares about:
https://i.imgur.com/mbDp6G2.png
For example, if you only want to see the runs which use the Gate thief route and not the regular one, one would select "Filter" > "Route" > "Gate thief" in the menu displayed above--which as of now would of course yield an empty board because there is no Gate thief submission so far, but I hope this explains the concept in a satisfying manner.

Thread: Request new category

Started by: Akuma_apnAkuma_apn

I don't see a point in making a new category over this as this clearly falls under the whole Warp thing. However, we could introduce a variable for the different routes (much like Dark souls for example does ) which then could be filtered out, i.e. if someone wants to see the fastest non-Gate Thief time, one can use the respective filter on the board to only see the runs he is interested in.

Either way, given the recent activity of SNES as well as the differences to the main game it's probably best to give this port it's own leaderboard (as also requested by several people over the last days)--so please do not worry if the SNES subcategory vanishes from this board.

Edit: Following up on what I wrote earlier, I will lock this thread here but of course the discussion may be continued over at the new SNES board.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I have updated the SNES (Warp) rules in accordance with the proposed ideas (or so I believe). This does of course not mean that it can't be subject to possible further changes.

"Can you PLEASE not use the term "world record'? It's very misleading and assumes that the video posted is the fastest time, where in fact someone else could have a faster, unrecorded version. Could you please use the term BKTWVEAAAVBMOFSRC (best known time with video evidence as approved and verified by members of the speed running community) in the future. This would help lower confusion in these types of videos in regard to the ever updating and evolving nature of the speedrunning community."
