Thread: Timing method

Started by: xenkaroshixenkaroshi

To make things easier on moderators end as well as runners to determine when to end timer, final frame will be the first frame of seeing The Mask initiating the scripted slide animation once final boss is defeated. Starting frame will be on first frame once the title menu starts darkening after start is picked.

All current submissions will be re-timed to accompany this change and the rules will get updated this week.

Edit: Done

Thread: "More contact methods"

Started by: dubesordubesor

at the very least for a speedrunner today: It should be common to have twitch and youtube setup for stream attempts and backup uploads for your vods, discord being the universally best software today for direct communication. There's your tools right there. I don't endorse facebook/twitter as a norm for everyone to have by any means, society generally have gone a bit mad comes both of them. On the other hand: Email is dated compared to instant messaging and should only be used for actual business today rather than a prime means of communication imo.

Thread: Take the new moderator

@spyrielspyriel Then I would suggest once you hopefully accept the seat of super mod in the near future. You may as well give OliKad a chance to prove himself as well. He has at the very least proven to be fairly outspoken within the community and is showing interest and care from what I can tell. I'd be happy to help out if needed, I certainly will however not advocate SRC staff to mod me as of today since I do not yet have a run up for this game yet. Do not fret however, with everything that's going down at the moment, I will move Power Blade learning up on my schedule and legitimately join that position in the future, if you would have me.

I know you hate the guy because he called you out on nonsense in the past, your judgement is clouded with emotion and I will not humor you one bit.

I trust Butz a whole hell of alot more than I do you timmy, given your recent outburst regarding clips in glitchless. I advice you not to throw any stones aimed at anyone. This thread isn't about tarnishing the good name of Butz whom did an excellent job during his time here. And went above and beyond in dealing with the idiocy that was you in that locked thread. Let's just focus on getting the community together rather than accusing former mods of anything.

spyriel is the only name in the top that I trust as an active runner and potential moderator, he's also already knowledged in framecounting and moderates other games. Chambers and Richie, even kozzx I believe: unfortunately have already made it clear that they do not want the position no longer. And most of the others frankly are lacking the english required for the position. No offense to you at all Oli, im just not personally familiar with you as a runner yet.

That being said: We still don't know Butz' situation and why we're in this place to begin with yet, only SRC staff can check the audit log at this point to verify what happened.

Reaching out to Butz on Discord, could take a few hours til we hear from him. His SRC profile states he's no longer mod on this game either. Not sure if this was an accident or a glitch. I nominated spyriel to take over, hopefully we'll know more soon

I'm not sure what's going on at https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​power_blade right now, but we lost our mod (Butz). If this was done by SRC staff or from him by accident is beyond the community at this point, im attempting to reach out to him in private. Meanwhile, the board is currently left alone without any moderators in place. I'm willing to be a placeholder for now until the matter is settled. I Know a fair amount of the route and I grew up with the game, just never submitted an actual run.

Alternatively I suggest spyriel to take up the mantel as he's an active speedrunner since a few years back.

Edit: Butz confirmed on DM he is retiring and do not plan to return

Edit #2: I've discussed with spyriel in private and we as a community have discussed the matter in public at the forums. He would be willing to take the position as mod.

All I can say is that this suggestion have been discussed in the discord, the community is divided when it comes to the idea both in practice for how such a run would look like and differ from the regular any% route, as well as the questionable interest for how many people would genuinely care. Feel free to join the discord to take part of these conversations, I know cosmic have looked into this recently.

Thread: Popular runners ≠ good SRC moderators.

Started by: junkyard_davejunkyard_dave

I agree that it shouldn't be on the runners to take private contact on social media just to reach out to mods not being active, but until SRC messages gets going, we don't seem to have a choice. Ofc, if the mods in question are inactive, I don't see what good that would do.. What it should come down to first and foremost is having mods whom genuinely care, in reality: that's not at all how people come to be mod for most games featured here. I myself am stuck as placeholder mod for 1 game right now, simply because im at least an active runner and check SRC daily.

Unfortunately: The truth is that not enough people care and step up to help moderate, and the other problem being that the right people choose not to, power abusive vultures have no problem stepping in to fill the slot: as we've seen on multiple occasions. What it comes down to is offering the position to already established and trustworthy people that the staff is familiar with, but then risk putting way too many titles on well known runners. Ultimately, people generally have to get more comfy with the idea of helping out with moderating in the community. Its an ungrateful job most days and I can certainly understand the appeal of leaving the position to others, but that's partially the reason we get into these positions as well. The community needs to help itself if it's gonna last longterm. I for one hate the idea of being a moderator for anything, im lazy... But if the option is to leave it to individuals unable to care for said games, I'll suck it up and help out where help is needed.

btw, removing the ability to load games by pages is hella slow when you try to go through all the games in the NES library. Which is something I typically do all the time just to see how many people runs what (which hey, about that player count).
If I wanna sort games now, I have to go by lowest or highest run account and start from one end then go to the other. Because loading in about 400-500 games at once seems to slow down alot.

Everyone's free to have an opinion, I don't agree that it would be redundant though. The whole point with a feedback thread is to give just that, and that's the search function I solely relied on before this new update for the past 2y. The most useful search order imo is MIA and I would like it back. Blessed be the mod whom fulfills this plebs wish BlessRNG

Which indeed shows games by active runners, but there used to be an option to sort games by player count. As in how many players have run said game in total. Not to be confused by run count mind you.
