    but you dont list "last years olympic swimming as a record" its a championship not a record. If single events were listed as records think of how bloated the record books would be. So yes, use that example of real world sports, its kind of my point. In real sports noone uses single tournaments for world records

    it also really mucks with the ESI. how is ESI fair when there are tracks new people cant submit on? How is "wr count" fair when not all can compete on it. Show me a single guiness world record that looks at asingle event? heck show me a record anywhere that does this.

    For the time being its the only placeholder TG has for recording the results of an event. There isn't a non-WR/non-ESI option anywhere.

    Are you on my radar?
    I'd rather be last on every game than throw my time away chasing only one score.

    to clarify further i'm not calling the tournament a joke, i'm calling the track a joke. The distinguishment is important. I dont think single events, no matter how impressive they are what record tracks are about. Record tracks are about, well, records, things across all time and all the world. Events are about championships, single points in time. Using a track for championships doesnt make sense. I'm not insulting the championship, i'm insulting the track, i'm insulting the place its recorded. There's a place to for championships and a place for records, putting championships in a record book is off. I'd equally mock a track for worlds fastest runner if it was in a book for greatest swimmers. Its a matter of categorization. A matter of putting things where they belong.

    I wonder should we make a track to record the results of the allen-off event?

    what about all the kong offs? should they all get their own track? I'm pretty sure if i created a track for a tournament people would call it silly.

    This one. You get credit for a "world record" when its not even open to the world! Heck, its not even a record, its a championship. Its for a single point in time, and noone else is allowed to submit on it. At least Allen's track are open for anyone to compete on; Allen isn't afraid of some competition. This track is even less competitive as the rules themselves prevent competition. I have no idea why this ridiculous track gets premium status and increases world record count when its not even a real track. How do you get a world record on something that the world isnt allowed to compete on?
    I agree with this 100% and I don't think that is the only one like this in the data base. I think TG should consider making some of the old tracks non premium and not just go with the logic of, if it was set up by TG it must be premium.

    If these tracks can't be removed entirely on the basis that they can no longer be competed on, I strongly suggest they be moved out of the premium track group.

    It will be a real sad moment in TG history, if "watching someone" play DK in ATTARCT mode, ever gets approved status before the original submitter !!! :P

    Now see, this is what happens when people complain before reading the rules. The rules clearly state the staal game you're watching must already be approved, so the scenario you lay out is impossible. Also, because I wanted to leave room for competition I didnt even watch allen's highest score. Call it sandbagging if you like. But i'm not afraid of competition. If someone wants to surpass me by watching allen get an even higher score,so be it.
