    My first thought upon reading this would be that this is the type of error that needs to be settled by filing a dispute.

    While numbers on our scoreboard match the numbers on the links that you sent, I don't feel comfortable relocating score by request. Additionally, you only point out 2 of the 5 scores there. There is one adjudicated with the TGSAP, so that one is fine... but the other 2 could be correctly place or they could not be.... It's a sticky situation.

    Definitely something @Jace Hall should weigh in on.

    The time announced is 2:07:49, but in the database, Ryan has a 2:07:39. A 10 second difference. Must be a typo by Kelly Flewin.

    https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/the-legend-of-zelda-links-awakening/game-boy-game-boy-color

    In the forum post on page 3, post #23, Ryan says he used using save/quit on his speedrun, which isn't allowed by the current rules. Looks like the rules got changed some time after Ryan's run.


    I suggest correcting the time to 2:07:49 and the rules be updated to allow the Save & Quit technique.


    Funny, you and other Haters are under attack of my old scores because are "suspicious" and "spliced" and other things and here you just want to fix the record or update the rules for your buddy, are you kidding me, right?


    I don't have doubts about you and your bad intentions against me, you already dispute many of my scores and it will continue forever, I am waiting you dispute all my records from old Twin Galaxies era, probably +800 records. The Dispute System has become a Playground for you and other haters to attack me.


    I doubt you dispute a fastest completion record of anyone player from old Twin Galaxies records without video proof! No, this won't happen, your attacks are against me, your fanatism breaks the barrier of human concience, you even contact me via facebook looking for explanation of old records done by me and other Metroid Team members, i have to block you and delete you from my "friends" contact, c'mon man, you are crazy!!!


    You want I find my old tapes, clean all them, find a good VCR and record my old records because you and opther haters disputed my records and are looking to watch....man, this will never happen, never, can you hear me? NEVER!

    "Oh Rodrigo, if you no have time, find someone to do this for you!" "just use your mobile camera to record the screen", "Have many tutorials in the internet how to do this"

    I am not a kid like you, I don't have the available time of 20 years ago whan I play videogame from day to the night, the Metroid Team don't play together does +10 years, we married, we have jobs, we have children, we have responsability. Today, to play videogame is just a fun to me, my records in the last years was Android or iPhone because I don't have time to play videogame consoles at home, maybe 3 hours by day if possible.


    You have to understand one thing, if I have +8000 ESI, +5400 WR, 50000 Credibility or +22000 Thanks/likes in this website, it was build with my capacity during these 20 years playing for Twin Galaxies. My dedication for Twin Galaxies for build with my own credibility, I become referee and help the website grow up with my experience, more +10,000 tracks was created by me along these yaer and I never earned $1 cent doing this, just love to contribute for this website, expanding my time helping the others and still showing to be a competitive player to motivate other player to submit their scores.


    You has become a hater against me and other guys are in the same way following you, I don't have fear to lose all my records dispute by you and other haters, I don't care if my Legend of Zelda and others that will come from you will be stripped out from website, I don't have fear to be banned because you are disputing my scores, this is your real intention, I want I be banned from this website, and you and your haters will continue until you find the "proof" for this, even you manipulate records to find your proof. You are disputes my scores because you are a haters, not because my record is impossible to beat. Doesn't matter is my records are in 1st, 2nd or 3rd place, you will dispute because you the dispute system is a playground for haters.

    You are looking in old forum things that I said +10...+15 years ago like "proofs" for my dispute. "Rodrigo have the tapes in your closet"...YES...I HAVE IT 15 YEARS AGO!!!! "Rodrigo said is possible to do below 30 minutes in Zelda" YES...I SAID IT 15 YEARS AGO!!! Would you like to know a thing? I don't remeber my route in 31:37, I don't remember my route in A Link to the Past...I don't remeber what I eat last week....I don't remember how to do below 30 minutes in Zelda....i don't know if is the same route, i don't know if is other route...I don't know, and this is not proof for a dispute in Legend of Zelda.

    In my personal opinion, Twin Galaxies shoud take a look for these haters, GibGirl started a dispute and this is the reason: "I'm opening a dispute for this time, not because I have specific evidence that it's not valid, but because of a number of factors listed below. I believe these give sufficient reason to consider this time questionable. I understand this may technically constitute a violation of the dispute rules, but I feel this is important enough to do so regardless, no matter the outcome"

    Doesn't matter the result for you? "Technically constitute a violation of dispute rules", "there's no specific evidence"

    Now, you have tons of evidence and the dispute is valid? "Hater members" and "new members" attack me with all sides and you tag me "Can you answer me?" Go to hell starcrytas!!!

    Starcrystas: "Here we have another one of Rodrigo Lopes's Zelda times that the speedrunning community has questioned" Which? Speed Demos Haters Archive? Are you talking about Tompa? Ask him...ask Rudi, ask Tom Duncan, ask Scott Stiphen...they are super friends, the best of the world...the best friends than I can imagine....and you are now in my list of best friends too, congratulations!!

    We are not talking about a wrong score, a impossible time or a incorrect rules, we are talking about haters, disputing my records because the the evidence is = "final moments....", "things that I said 15 years ago" and "I want you submit your scores again"


    Now, can you the others Twin Galaxies players see the diffence between me and Ryan Willianson in a Legend of Zelda score in the view of Matthew Felix?

    Ryan Willianson: Status: Incorrect time and incorrect rules and no video (old record from 2003): Matthew Felix words: Must be fixed the time and the rules, video is not necesary...No dispute!

    Rodrigo Lopes: Status: All OK, record is possible to beat (already beaten), but no have video. Mathew Felix and the fellow Haters words: suspicious, spliced, self verified, it is a violation of dispute rules but who cares, doesn't matter the result of dispute, we need from you the videotape records. DISPUTE NOW!

    That's is the difference!!


    I hope you do dispute all 100,000 old records without TGSAP, you have a lot of work with Pinball records, all them very trustable records...let's pass here!!! No wait...just my records are suspicious, right? Because I am Brazilian player or maybe I can't be the top ESI or WR? You have to study your stupid math lesson now...


    One day, the dispute will close and something will happen, my record probably will be deleted because you will continue find proofs and proofs until you win this war, then you will start other...." but Rodrigo, why you don't defend yourself? You had time to defend.....you had time to submit your old tapes...you had time show to everybody they are wrong!!! No....let they do this....let they delete the records....because this will not stop, other dispute will come after that...and the reason is the GibGirl words = "Doesn't matter the result." "Technically constitute a violation of dispute rules", "there's no specific evidence"

    The dispute System has become a playground for the haters! Victim = ME!

    Then you will snap the neck bones, a deep breath...a say to yourself...I got it! Rodrigo is gone.

    And now the kingdom are happy: the King, the Prince and the Jester.

    i'm not taking rodrigo or matthew's side here, rather i agree with franny's other comment about fixing a score. challenges are needed for that, this thread should be for issues with the actual framework of the scoreboard itself. even if a mistake is proven, we need documenation of the change. remember, people in the past who screwed up the scoreboard were sure what they were doing was right and left no clear record. if we're to learn from that mistake, even when we're sure we're right we have to be humble enough to admit we might be wrong, and therefore a record is needed, and a dispute is the best way to attach and preserve that record

    I'm not sure what the exact concern is but I will remind everyone that scores can only be removed if there is definitive and objective evidence that they are invalid. Popularity, conjecture or subjective opinion does absolutely nothing in terms of reaching the evidentiary standard needed to generate a removal.

    Noticed a couple tracks need some title tweaking for Xbox 360 DJ Hero.

    This track needs "JAY-Z feat. Pharrell" changed to "JAY-Z":

    Just stumbled on the "Dragster - Blindfold Challenge" at https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/dragster-blindfold-challenge/atari-2600-vcs . Should these be merged with the main game?

    Track owners are @Marcade and @Snowflake

    This makes sense to me. To avoid confusion of course, Barthax is not talking about merging the scores on both tracks into one track, he's talking about listing both tracks under the same game.

    @admin staff Is this Vzaar Copy thing on the Score Submission Review Page a new feature or just something overlooked during testing?

    Well, I know it's on the list of bugs and feature suggestions that the engineers are working from, so I figure it's new. Seems a good chance to offer some feedback on what works with it and what doesn't.

    I know having it on the submission review page you screenshotted doesn't seem like quite the right place to have it. Though on the submission threads themselves, I think that might work well. Especially when the text color in the box is fixed for night mode. ;)

    Only suggestion I have is to remove it from that view and stick it on the submitted score detail page....

I will be posting a Laenani Wind 5 in the future (among others), so could a TG staffer please test that scoreboard: https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/te.../1?ref=fbshare

    In the past, when I have followed through with such a dispute, the original scoreboard is modified to the "newly" disputed score of 0. On this occasion, I've chosen not to follow through with the dispute so that someone at TG should be able to replicate the process & thereby fix, please.
