    Exclamation Help! Wrong score entered in my submission.

    I just submitted my high score for Atari Tempest (Arcade - Tempest - Points [Marathon, Starting Up To Wave 81 Max]) and the wrong number was entered for the score. (The number entered is 72, but should be 990133. Ouch!)

    Does anyone know how I go about correcting the submission score?
    I sent Twin Galaxies a message via the contact form to see if they can correct it, but I'm not sure it will get noticed quickly enough before people start reviewing the erroneous submission.
    Can someone please advise.
    Thanks,
    Jeff L

    You can't. You have 2 options

    1. cancel the submission and submit a new one with the correct score
    2. let the adjudicators reject the score and submit a new one with the correct score

    Either way, your points are lost

    Spectre is correct. All submission threads are permanent and locked to avoid tampering or adjusting after people have voted on them or discussed them. It's a bummer but it's a security measure and at the end of the day I think it's a good thing.
