    you starting to see a pattern between what was tracked and what wasnt? a pattern one what sets of rules were allowed? when glitches were allowed and when they werent? when leeching was allowed and when it wasnt?

    Not really, except if a pattern of inconsistentcy counts. Maybe it was just Flewin sucked at memory and prehistoric Olympics.

    I'd like to get an answer on this as a matter of consistency, the dragon defender rom was locked per discussion in this thread solely due to the reasons that it was a homebrew with no official release
    http://www.twingalaxies.com/entry.ph...0#comment16350

    So a homebrew anyone can easily access and play now has a locked tracked noone else can submit on, but a tom duncan homebrew which only he has is fine and good? How is that fair. Additionally the community spent months discussing dragon defender and came to an agreement to allow future scores on the track that refs created. The modern community agreed the track was fine, the old refs created the track, everyone was on board but that track is locked and this is allowed?

    I guess if you want a homebrew to be allowed you gotta first make sure one of the top favorites submitted to it. Favoritism is sadly still alive and well even in this TG era.

    Few questions here

    How would any homebrew get tracked on TG anyways?
    Tom Duncan was not an Atari referee at all, so a former Atari referee must have set this up for Lowell?
    Unless a referee can create tracks for any platform whether they were in charge of it or not, Tom was the one to have set this up?

    Not true. Tom was a 2600 referee at one time, along with some other consoles. Sometimes several refs were assigned to one platform as overlap. Also, any referee could set up any tracks they wanted back then, at their own free will, or at a request of a gamer.

    In time, they lost this right, as only a head ref had authority.
    Thanks starcrytas thanked this post

    I only found posts of him being listed as Coleco referee. Thanks confirming this.
    I had a feeling any referee could set up tracks for any platform back then.
