    Either I don't understand how to embed Twitch videos (likely, as the embedded video cut off part of my post) or this is some compatibility issue between TG and Twitch. In any case, the video is still around, and this dispute's validity is only a a question of whether or not Twitch highlights should be used for submissions.
    That link seems to be working fine

    Yeah the broken links thing sucks but this score is 100% legit as well as his monster MC marathon run.

    Maybe there needs to be a rule to force people to upload video to TG player otherwise this will likely continue to be a more common occurrence down the road.

    I should also point out that Victor's Twitch highlight was created on 10-26-2013 (see below), more than 16 months before the score was submitted to Twin Galaxies.

    Unless Victor borrowed the keys to the Wayback Machine from Mister Peabody, it seems highly unlikely that the original video evidence has been altered in any way (aside from the new URL).

    Voting No.

    Twitch is an official submission method, its right there on the page when you submit a score.

    No user did the wrong thing here. If twitch changes the link then TG are the only ones with the ability to fix it.

    The system is at fault here, not the users. Losing credibility, or removing a score for a trivial matter such as this is a disgraceful outcome.
