Thread: Level category for pre 1.16 vote

Started by: ROMaster2ROMaster2

Also just wanted to record the following:

The advantage of using names such as "any%" and "glitchless" is that it follows the conventions for many other games.

The advantage of using names such as "pre-1.16" and "1.16+" is that it makes it very clear what is considered allowed and what is banned.

Thread: Level category for pre 1.16 vote

I agree that there should be separate leaderboards for 1.16+ and <1.16

1.16+ could also be known as post-1.16 or glitchless.

<1.16 could also be known as pre-1.16 or any%

Since I am a <1.16 runner I think that the default leaderboard should be <1.16, but obviously it should really be on whatever category is run most often.

Just as an interesting aside, glancing at the leaderboards, in my uninformed opinion, I think that most of the 1.16+ runners have probably left already. It seems to me like most of the runs occurred 9 months ago, and one runner in particular catches my eye, MrLlamaSC. He is a reasonably popular diablo 2 streamer/speedrunner I used to watch, and I think that he started to stream starcraft, which is why all of a sudden there were a whole load of starcraft runs made. Then when he made his last run 9 months ago, everyone stopped running starcraft again. To reiterate, this is my uninformed opinion.

An alternative theory is that maybe that is when remastered came out (though I can't even be bothered doing the research for that lol)

I don't actually know why there are two separate any% categories in heli attack 3, I didn't even deliberately put a run in the other one, must have done it accidentally. I will remove one of them later. But I don't want to tamper with anything until HugeTurban is gone, so as not to mess up the logs and stuff. He has taken down my runs multiple times already, and it is annoying having to put them back up repeatedly.

I put my youtube channel into social, but I don't have accounts for any of the other listed sites (Twitch, Twitter, SRL, Discord)

So, a while ago I was made mod for Heli attack 3, because HugeTurban wasn't accepting my run. I verified my own run, but he has taken down my run twice, for no reason, or at least I don't think he has tried to tell me why.

I submitted a run for Heli Attack 3, it has been waiting for 1 month, and the only moderator, Huge Turban:

"Member since 4 months ago

Last online 3 months ago"

I would like to have my run accepted, and I guess be moderator if neccessary

Thread: New games page layout

Started by: zergreenonezergreenone

I would like to be able to search games in a compressed format. I would like to be able to quickly scroll through games to get inspiration on what game to run next. The old games page layout allowed me to do this. The new games page layout has a maximum page size of 100, images that take time to load, and the games are not in as compressed a format.

Is there a way to revert to the old game page format?

This is the page I am talking about: https://www.speedrun.com/games
