    I tried to watch the whole thing, he kinda got in a rut that wasn't going anywhere, lol!

    First-now is now. If he is that good at MC, then he should just perform under exact TG specifications and go for the score now-I do believe he would have a chance, truly, he does seem passionate about the game.

    Second...
    Oh. My, full disclosure, lol!
    I actually contacted Roy once after my Burgertime adventure, I got it in my head that Billy Mitchell simply didn't like me(anonymous source said he was gonna call and congrat, never did, then the "MAME players don't count" comment shortly after my W/R-I know now that it wasn't as big an accomplishment as I saw it at the time, he wasn't referring to me, I just thought the guy had it out for me...).
    Asked Roy to help me get a real BT arcade cabinet, ala King of Kong, hehe, he responded but I didn't really follow up.

    I was just looking for a free Burgertime cabinet!
    :)

    I DO think, though, Roy, if you happen to peruse this-Man, if you are good at Missile Command, then just check out how things are right this moment at TG, follow the guidelines for proper submissions, and go officially get your World Record that has bugged you for so long!!!

    I believe TG made the right call here, but I also want to mention I view this as basically a one-off situation - I think in almost all other cases, the dispute system should be what we use to remove scores, and we shouldn't campaign for a person to be unilaterally removed from the database.

    The correct decision was made

    Hopefully we get a final statement from TG regarding the issue so we can put this to rest forever.

    I agree that this was a very unique situation. I certainly hope that nothing even remotely similar to this ever happens again.

    I agree, but I think there's merit for TG management to consider formalizing the pre-TGSAP rule evoked by RTM; namely, that players who submit multiple false scores "qualify" to have all of their scores removed, presumably because such behaviour is deemed abusive and contrary to the standards of TG. These multiple infractions would be revealed through the dispute system before highlighting the individual for general censure through the removal of all associated scores.

    Completely agree, multiple false scores would definitely be one of the situations where a complete removal from the database is warranted - I mean, the whole point of this site is authentic scores, and false ones are like weeds in a garden...I'm hoping that is as much a rarity as this situation was.

    Now that TG made the choice (the right choice) to expunge all of Ron's scores, the rankings and percentage column is now currently out of wack. @TWIN GALAXIES... Please adjust this, as his former #1 scores (and others) no longer exist. Thanks...

    eg. 2600 - Ms,Pac-Man

    eg. Homerun: (His former #1 rank had over 25 runs submitted, (which i am sure was bogus as well, under incorrect difficulty settings).

    Wow, just wow, I can't believe this. I suggested it a few weeks ago. Glad that POS is gone from the scoreboards.

    Nope Marc that is correct, you can never be number 1, just number 2 which can have two meanings. :)

    Speaking of "removals", I also know someone who was thrown out of a TG sponsored tournament.
