Regarding some glitched tracks for PC versions of games

The other day @admin staff replied to me regarding some broken PC game tracks, but I think there was a misunderstanding.

I created some tracks specifically for the PC versions of "Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy" and "Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+". The tracks were fully funded and show up in the leaderboards and performance submission menu as seen below:

However, when selecting the games from the leaderboard, I'm just taken to a blank page and no PC tracks are showing up in the drop-down menu at the top-right (though the URL specifically lists it as "PC"):

If someone could help me out on this so that these tracks become available to view, I'd appreciate it.

    This looks like a problem (not a bug) of the SEO feature on the scoreboard. We've seen & reported quite a lot of these where non-alphanumeric characters cause the problem.

    The game name you have entered for Pac-Man is not an exact match for the game which gets displayed but the difference is a non-alphanumeric character (+). The SEO may be accidentally reducing "Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+" to "Pac-Man Championship Edition DX" and then trying to retro-fit the SEO game name but doesn't find a PC game for "Pac-Man Championship Edition DX".

    The . character in the Crash Bandicoot game looks to be the problem there: the URL does not account for the position of the character, thus shortening the game "Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy" to "Crash Bandicoot: N Sane Trilogy" before the retro-fit of the SEO to locate the tracks for the game.

    I believe the fix is possible by @admin staff only. Hopefully my guestimate above is sufficient for them to understand the wider picture.
