New to the site!

Hi guys!

I am new to the site, and just submitted my first record attempt, after registering(Gameboy Tetris Points Rank#17).

I just had a couple questions if someone could be kind to answer them?

1. If I break my own score, can I immediately post that submission, and would it simply raise my rank in the leaderboard, if so?

2. If I understood the info index, you get "points" or something, for casting votes/helping adjudicate other submissions. Can I do this right away? I'm excited to help out and get involved with the community!

3. Can you cast votes for different platforms/games, or can you only vote for submissions related to your own attempts?

4. What's some things I can do to be involved and help in the TG community?


Any info for this newcomer would be much appreciated! Thanks :)

    Hi Andrew, welcome to TG!

    1. You can submit as many scores as you want to the same track as long as you have the submission points to do so. When people vote on them and they get accepted, only your highest score will remain.

    2. You get 1 SP (submision point) per correct vote, either a yes or no vote, as long as it is correct you will get 1. You need 3 SP for every record you want to submit. Yes you can start voting right away and you can even vote on your own stuff.

    3. You can vote on any platform you want. It is recommended that you vote only on games that you know or games that don't need to much knowledge to adjuicate correctly, but ultimately you can vote on anything you like.

    4. Submitting scores and adjudicating other's performances is more than enough for a new player to help the site. Little by little you can get more involved in other stuff but for now, just submitting scores is great!

    Since you've already used your free sub, and sound like you intend to do a whole lot more subbing, you better get adjudicating! You need to correctly vote on three submissions, for every one you make. Check some of those Angry Birds subs, easy decisions, mostly. Better hurry, they disappear fast.

    Thanks for the post, and vote! Alas, I do quite suck at racing games, overall haha, I mostly stick to gameboy games, as I grew up playing them the most, aside from casually gaming, when I can. I'll check out the info provided for sure! Thanks again for the support

    pretty much what everyone else said. you only get one free sub. after that its each right vote earns one point, and it costs 3 to submit. vote on whatever you feel comfortable with

    and of course, dont forget tg is a combination of both relaxed fun and extremely pedantic important fact finding. be thorough in adjudication, but make friends along the way. you can very seriously examine a video for accuracy and at the same time throw in some casual personal notes.

    Welcome! I think the biggest thing people can do here to help is it just participate. Either in uploading videos, judging, or honestly just communicating ! Post stuff. Video game stuff. Fun stuff. Retro stuff. Whatever ! :)
