    It happened on all scores that were unpublished. Anything deleted (obviously) didn't reappear.

    Evidence has stacked up against this score. The combination of it having been removed before and reinstated, plus the unusually high score, is the main basis.

    It is possible the score was valid under different rules at the time.

    It is possible the extra ‘4’ is a typo. It is probable from the discussion here and elsewhere that this score was entered by the player himself, who has a history of dishonesty, including how he has handled his own scores.

    It is probable that methods, including a Game Genie, were used to restart after level 19. That sounds a bit like a ‘continue’ to me.

    We could open a new track to keep this score but, as so much surrounding it is in question, including how it was done, that is not something I want to suggest.

    We have put a lot of thought into this case and the score is being removed. It does not mean all scores by this player will be removed. However if any other scores by this player are disputed, members can mention that a successful dispute has already occurred, and link to it.
