    @lexmark , I do largely agree with you that rules should be followed and I had a problem with the same submission you're referencing so I voiced my protest, abstained, and moved on. As has been stated that has nothing to do with this challenge and you're free to start your own challenge.

    Its worth pointing out if we enforce every rule (something i'm fine with) than all free play being used when free play is supposed to be off would also be challenged and removed are you calling for that as well? I specifically asked Jace what if the community saw the rules and broke them. He said if the community was ok with breaking rules just to brake rules he'd get invovled and remove the score, however if the concern is "pedantic" then he'd let the score stand. I see the bonus life at 7 or 10k when no lives were lost before then to be pretty much as relevant if free play is on when rules say off. I dont think you'll succeed in such a challenge, but even if you, it belongs in that ones challenge thread, not here

    Sometimes, Bill a stance must be taken. We can all remember the unpopular stance I took in the cr*p-tastic McAllister Space Encounters submission, and didn't I get crucified. As it happens that stance went a LONG way to TG changing the rules for those players like JM that custom build settings so as it makes it impossible to not get a world record = non premium track
    That's what's happening with those 7/10K submissions...those players are custom building their own settings..i.e..making excuses for not been able to get the simplest detail right. Not very professional!

    Its worth pointing out if we enforce every rule (something i'm fine with) than all free play being used when free play is supposed to be off would also be challenged and removed are you calling for that as well?
    Damn right I am! I'm well and truly on record for saying so. Just another simple rule that shouldn't be ignored.

    I might add...I don't agree with the premium/non premium policy. ALL tracks here at TG should be premium or NOT exist at all!
    Reminds me of an upmarket store that also sells ***** crap!
    Ya can't have it both ways. You either position yourself / be known to sell the good stuff or you sell the ***** stuff.

    Currently we have this track:
    Donkey Kong 3 [US] - Points [Marathon]

    And this one:
    Donkey Kong 3 [US] [Donkey Kong 3 [US] Hardest (Marathon Settings)]
    Which has no scores on it yet.

    The top one is the track this disputed score belongs to and is supposed to be played on medium, so it should be edited to read
    Donkey Kong 3 [US] - Points Medium [Marathon]

    The bottom one should be reformatted to read
    Donkey Kong 3 [US] – Points Hardest [Marathon]
    Then we need to add the new variant

    Donkey Kong 3 [US] – Points Easy [Marathon]

    and move this score to it.

    Any comments?

    Looks good to me. Maybe an extra hyphen in the formatting for clarity?

    Donkey Kong 3 [US] - Points - Medium [Marathon]
    Donkey Kong 3 [US] - Points - Hardest [Marathon]
    Donkey Kong 3 [US] - Points - Easy [Marathon]

    And we could go crazy and add the actual difficulty name in there too:

    Donkey Kong 3 [US] - Points - Medium/Difficulty 2 [Marathon]
    Donkey Kong 3 [US] - Points - Hardest/Difficulty 4 [Marathon]
    Donkey Kong 3 [US] - Points - Easy/Difficulty 1 [Marathon]

    Thanks for all the input here. This dispute is accepted. We will create the new track for easy and move this score to it. We will slightly reformat the titles for all three tracks, as proposed above by Jeremy, in order to make them consistent and more clear.

    Nice work folks.
    Thanks Barra, xelnia thanked this post
