    I think you'll find feelings are split on this. I'll try to sum up to the sides. Obviously you understand the side where we say "whos to say whats record is better than another". The other side though says, sorry some things are silly. And remember, this is nothing new, the old tg had "do not track list" and outright refused to even allow certain scores to be submitted. So while the premium system said "you can submit but its not worth as much" the old system "you cant submit period" so there's always been the idea that some tracks mean less than others. As Jace started allowing more and more things to be tracked, people of the mindset that somethings shouldnt be tracked got more and more offended so the compromise was reached that you can at least track it, just not make it as valuable.

    I do think all things should be allowed since yeah, how can you possibly try to logically prove what method of fun on a game makes more sense? My attitude is, if the record is meaningful to you, who cares what others think. If you do care what others think though -- and no shame in that we all care a little -- well then you cant force people to respect a record. The records that get respect will get just as much respect with or without a certificate. As long as there's no a place for the public to see you're score, if its something others will care about they'll find out about it

    Thank you.

    I understand the potential delima

    In my small unimportant opinion-If there was a “need” to police world records it should have been done prior to them being created not after the fact then telling people their WR records mean less than other WR Records

    Dang
    let’s go lower the speed limit and fine everyone who drove the established limit at the time but now that its lower let’s make the fines retroactive to the beginning of time ?

    This action seems a bit contentious and potentially divides the community

    This action of premium/non premium no longer exists.

    In large part, the creation of this separation was due to people creating exceptionally questionable tracks.

    An example of such a track is watching a splash screen to see who can view the highest splash screen score. There is no typo in that last sentence. No coin is ever dropped. This is an actual track.

    There are several other tracks like this, mostly generated as copy cat tracks from one initial track created by an individual who was not pleased about the lack of track creation standards.

    To some they were/are joke tracks. To others they are mechanisms that forced TG's hand to make policy changes.

    For better or for worse, the past can't be changed.

    oh its definitely contentious and divides the community. however, ithink most divisive issues are divisive either way, the only difference is when you're allowed to talk about it you notice how divisive it is. that doesnt mean its worse now, just that it gets more conversation. because i want all tracks to be allowed i can live with the decision. Its really important to me no tracks get policed preemptively. I really want people to be able to create whatever they want. The silly tracks I created, well I created them not because I wanted them but because I wanted to pull heat off of people who were getting hate for tracks they wanted. you know, keep people busy hating me and they wont have time to hate on allen staal for the tracks he sincerely wants.

    I didn't know that falsifying documents and history meant so much

    Guys, thank you to those that offered intelligent conversation.

    I hope all your and everyone elses Records achieve equal status.

    If a track should be a track then it’s much easier to eliminate it in the approval process by policing it then that taking enormous amounts of time to do it after the fact.

    I will I’ll watch the process in interest.

    Thank you for your most valuable asset - your time listening

    I own no part of USNVGT.
    I am a player and adviser period.
    I only advise when asked.

    I have no idea why anyone left nor does it effect me personally.

    If you seek answers vs accusations -Maybe a call to one of the 2 owners would be an intelligent choice.
