Alright, so let's get this straight.

You submitted the run on October 24, 2018.

You sent me a Twitter DM about it on October 26 and 27, 2018. Unfortunately with my new position at work I was unable to respond. Additionally, you sent me a Discord PM on October 27, 2018, which I responded to.

On October 30, 2018, you mentioned Sigmaphied on Twitter about your run getting verified, which I also replied to. Sigma and Lou also mentioned that we were retiming all runs across all leaderboards, so there is a significant delay in verifications.

On November 1, 2018 you sent me another Twitter DM on an alternate account, which I pretended to "not see." I was considering firing you from the LB's at this time but I thought to sleep on it since Sigma was going through the retimings soon.

But, after all of that, you post this to the forums. I like to think that I'm pretty laid back when it comes to these kinds of things, and most people understand the setback and will typically be patient and wait for their runs to be verified. Creating an alternate account to try and get to me that way is pretty low, too.

Now that all the runs have been retimed, I have decided that your run will be removed, and your future submissions will not be allowed to our leaderboards.

For anyone else reading this post -- verifications take time. Verifiers have lives. Please respect them and understand that we will verify your runs as soon as possible. The last thing you want to do is pester the mods multiple times a week in order to get your run verified.

Thanks.

EDIT: For anyone wondering, the user started the thread asking for his run to be verified. It has since been deleted after checking this message on November 5, 2018 at 11:34 MST.

Thanks. I've updated it to an imgur link instead.

I mentioned this in Discord but was told to also mention it here -- allowing for Twitch Clips to be auto-embedded into run submissions would be handy. Thank you!

Added Hyrule Bike Challenge as an IL as it doesn't start fresh from New Game.

Hi, can we link Breath of the Wild Category Extensions to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild?

https://www.speedrun.com/botw https://www.speedrun.com/botw-extension

Thank you so much!

Category extensions can be located here:

https://www.speedrun.com/botw-extension

As of 2017 Dec 19, the following categories have been moved from this leaderboard to the extensions leaderboard:

  • All Dog Treasures
  • All Kilton Medals
  • All Towers
  • Master Sword, Dungeons, and Towers

If you had runs hyperlinked anywhere, you will probably need to relink them. Let me know if you have any questions!

NOTE: This thread is ONLY for request submissions with the below criteria, this is NOT an "idea" thread to discuss what categories other runners should run. Any non-request submission will be deleted.

If you want to talk about ideas, see this thread: https://www.speedrun.com/botw/thread/odu09

Hi, welcome to the Breath of the Wild Category Extensions Leaderboard! Here we will house all the fun categories you can come up with.

When requesting a category, please provide the following:

  1. A reasonable ruleset for the category
  2. A video of your run for the category

Please keep in mind that the category should be meaningful and should not be stupidly arbitrary (ie, 3 Korok Seeds, 1 Tower, 2 Divine Beasts RTA).

Example request:

All Dog Treasures Rules: Get all treasures revealed to you by dogs. This does not require the completion of Tarrey Town, but it will require some of it done for the dogs to appear.

Have fun everyone!

Hi, these have been on the leaderboard since adding individual shrines:

I'll add Footrace, I thought I did it at the same time. I don't know about Boom Bam Golf, I wasn't sure about it while adding the others since the minigame is based more around score and not time but if others want to run it, it can always be added.

EDIT: BBCode is real cool
