Hello! My apologies for the late reply. I appreciate the suggestion, but I am unsure of the popularity of such a category. In my opinion, these types of runners may be more inclined to play games such as Shoot the Bullet. Nonetheless, thank you for your time!

Thank you for the suggestion! I will look into adding this category. Edit: The LNN category has been added.

Hello! It seems there may have been a mistake here in uploading. This is a Pokemon Wordle video.

Haha, no problem. You can find the rules for each category where the arrow is.

  1. Yes, runs are still being approved for this board. I try to check every day, but if not, I will definitely get to it within a week.
  2. Only 1CC runs count for the purposes of this board. The rules state that "you must complete these conditions without using a continue." My apologies if this was not clear.
  3. Pausing is fine.

Vsync would be allowed, since the standard for runs is 60 FPS. English patch is fine. I presume the difference between English and Japanese text is miniscule when using the skip function. I would also agree with the verdict of that post regarding the EoSD retexture patch. If there was a version without the hitbox, that would be fine.

My apologies, this was clearly my oversight. Thank you for your observation. The run has been rejected unless the user re-submits it in its entirety.

Thank you for the suggestion. I have changed TH10, TH15, and TH18 to have subcategories. Please let me know if anything seems out of place, or if you have further suggestions in the future.

Thank you for your concern. I appreciate when problems are brought up like this.

I have been discussing this issue with other runners, and the solution I would have liked to use is to nullify shop time during live runs. However, the only practical way to do this is an autosplitter, and I do not know how to program one.

Due to this, I may end up going with the other solution, making separate boards for live runs and replays. I did not want to clutter the board with so many different types of runs, but if that is the most practical answer, then so be it.

I would like to request to be the series moderator for the Touhou series. This is because a new Touhou game is coming out, and the current series moderator, @bjw, has not logged in for two months. I have attempted to contact them when they had not moderated any Touhou runs for ten months on Twitter and on the site, to no reply.

No, the use of this bug would not be allowed for use in speedruns. By resuming from a save point, that would not count as "starting from the beginning." The demo run would be considered different from the initial run that you started. Thank you for your question.

Hello! I asked a week ago about removing bjw from the Touhou games that I moderate. Since then, I have cleared 10 months of old runs that needed verification, and bjw has not verified any of them. Was there any follow-up regarding checking up with him, @R0main? I have messaged him on here and Twitter, to no avail.

If bjw is found to be inactive regarding these games, then I would like to request being added as the moderator for the "Touhou" series as well.

Mountain of Faith has a glitch where Marisa's B shot type dramatically increases in damage output between power level 3.00 and 3.95. Unsurprisingly, this has led to literally every run, in every category to use Marisa B.

However, an obviously dominant shot type is not a reason to split the category. My concern is that this is a glitch. Other games have boards split between "glitchless" and runs that use glitches.

My question to the community is whether this split would benefit the board. While this is a glitch, if it does not bother runners, then it would be fine to keep it the way it is.

I would like to request the removal of Super Mod status from bjw and CrystalChaos from these games, and furthermore would like to ask for Super Mod status myself.

Touhou Chireiden ~ Subterranean Animism Touhou Eiyashou ~ Imperishable Night Touhou Fuujinroku ~ Mountain of Faith Touhou Kanjuden ~ Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom Touhou Kikeijuu ~ Wily Beast and Weakest Creature Touhou Kishinjou ~ Double Dealing Character Touhou Seirensen ~ Undefined Fantastic Object Touhou Tenkuushou ~ Hidden Star in Four Seasons

The reason being that on becoming a mod for these games, I have found that there have been runs waiting for over nine months to be verified. It is clear to me that runs for these games are not being considered by the current super mods. CrystalChaos has not been online for years, and bjw has not responded to my messages here nor on Twitter.

My bad, email authentication should be enabled now. I suppose I would be interested in moderating Touhou: Unidentified Fantastic Object, the one I have a waiting run in, then. Also, the same inactive pair of moderators also moderate these other Touhou games:

Touhou: Subterranean Animism Touhou: Imperishable Night Touhou: Mountain of Faith Touhou: Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom Touhou: Wily Beast and Weakest Creature Touhou: Double Dealing Character Touhou: Hidden Star in Four Seasons

I would also be interested in being a moderator for these games, if possible.

I have added my Twitter contact info and enabled email as per @ShadowDraft 's request. Is that necessary for getting my runs verified? I am not interested in being a mod for the game, just that run for Touhou UFO to be verified.

Hello! I would like to request moderation for Touhou ~ Undefined Fantastic Object. https://www.speedrun.com/touhou_seirensen_undefined_fantastic_object

My run, which would be the only run in its category, has been in queue for four weeks. There are two supermods for this game: CrystalChaos and bjw. Chaos has not been online for two years, and I have attempted to reach out to bjw through PM on this site a week ago, and on Twitter four days ago with no reply. Thank you for your time!
