    I have come across another instance of this happening except its a number of submissions rather than just one.
    This gamer has multiple submissions for this game and he has been given the ESI before any of them have been accepted.
    https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/virtual-pinball/sega-genesis-sega-mega-drive/

    Look at the ESI chart on the left hand side and look at his submissions.
    Something else that seems to be wrong here is these submissions of his are beating some of his earlier submissions, and the earlier submissions have already disappeared as if his newer ones have already been accepted, yet they haven't. Normally this doesnt happen until the newer submission is accepted.
    Its treating these submissions as if theyre already accpted when they have NOT been accepted, and if Ive noticed this in the few Ive seen Im sure its more prevalent than just these few Ive caught.

    It seems this always happens. If you have an existing score that has been accepted, all pending submissions add esi relevant to each of those submissions. When they have been adjudicated, all but the highest are removed and the esi becomes correct. I first noticed it back when battling for score with someone on chase hq 2. We kept topping one another to the point where it was showing like 30 or 40 esi for each of us briefly.

    It doesnt always happen. And its not just exclusive to tracks that have been submitted to multiple times by the same gamer either, as my first example, the one where a gamer was submitting for a Sega Genesis Tetris track, that was his first submission to that track and he was given ESI prematurely.

    That one is still up and can be seen here:
    https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/tetris/sega-genesis-sega-mega-drive/ntsc-normal-game-points/

    And Ive submitted to many tracks multiple times, never has the previous submission been taken off the leaderboard before the new one is accepted, and though I dont always check it I dont think Ive ever been awarded ESI prematurely either.

    Thats an interesting side effect, racking up what looks to be a ton of ESI between only 2 people with many not-yet-accepted submissions.
    When were your Chase HQ submissions? Because it seems to be a somewhat new development and since you've been submitting a ton lately theirs a high probability it would affect some of your submissions.

    Another track where Russell Herzog is listed twice:

    Josh Reisner and David James are both listed twice on this leaderboard:
    https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/hydro-thunder/arcade/ship-graveyard-fastest-race/page/1?ref=fbshare


    All these double listings ive caught have been from the HydroThunder Arcade track, so there may be more of them I havnt seen.

    Cole if you look right now, before anything changes, you'll see your submission for Bloodbath on Virtual Pinball is shown correctly,
    https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/virtual-pinball/sega-genesis-sega-mega-drive/page/1/
    your older submission is still there and you havnt received ESI for it yet, but if you look at your submission for Master Plan on Virtual Pinball
    https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/virtual-pinball/sega-genesis-sega-mega-drive/ntsc-master-plan-points/page/2?ref=fbshare
    you will see this one is suffering from the glitch Ive been describing. Your older submission has already disappeared and you seem to have already been given ESI for this when it hasnt been accepted yet.

    Of course im not saying you are doing anything wrong, its something in the system. Thats why I never mentioned it to you and just posted it here without tagging you or anything.

    Uncovered an old mistake by myself. The StadiumA tracks for TrackMania 2 also highlight a hiccup with the SEO processing of tracks. The links on the submissions link back to the incorrect version.

    StadiumA1 example: https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/trackmania/pc/?track=stadiuma1

    Submission example: https://www.twingalaxies.com/showthread.php/247758-PC-TrackMania%B2-TrackMania-United-Stadium-Play-Solo-United-Race-White-StadiumA1-Time-22-47

    I have submitted to the correct pair of StadiumA1 tracks: those with hyphen (-) delimiters can be kept and those with comma (,) characters can be deleted, please.

    @Cxm you mentioned ChaseHQ so I took a look at that track. Posting it here cuz I found another glitch. I dont know if its related to this other glitch phenomenon of awarding ESI prematurely and tracks disappearing early, but it may be. Regardless its another glitch.
    https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/chase-hq-ii/sega-genesis-sega-mega-drive

    Admin,
    If one takes a look at the Chase HQ Sega Genesis track and clicks on 'rejected submissions' you'll see its filled with all of CXM's submissions, the thing is none of them were actually rejected. They were all accepted at the time, but when a higher score was entered and accepted his previous scores were incorrectly put in the 'rejected submissions' section.

    Here is an example;
    https://www.twingalaxies.com/showthread.php/189161
    this is a score of his (594k) that was accepted June 20th 2018. Two days later on June 22 he submitted a higher score(1.3mil) and this submission should have went into the 'accepted submissions' section but for some reason all of his submissions went into the 'rejected submissions' section.

    Maybe it should be left how it is... I had voted YES on that submission, but it says I voted NO--If it gets switched, all "NO" voters may lose cred. It's a score he has beaten anyway...Who cares where it sits :D

    My vote was also magically transformed from 'yes' to 'no'. Of course, it is absolutely inconceiveable that admin would engage in vote tampering. Must be a bug in the cancellation function.

    https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/fast-and-furious-super-cars/arcade
