According to the dates here Ben Mullen was the first to achieve a maxout score, so why is he listed 6th?

MegaTech -

the date for ben is wrong, it should be 2012-10-07

I dont doubt you, that would make perfect sense, but it would help if there was something to show this is the case so that this is to be corrected.
Do you have a link to something or some kind of evidence of this? Something I could maybe show admin so they can change the date?

ofcorse. Here's the link on his youtube. https://youtu.be/oqPftXUjgbU
If you need more information, there was a tetris documentary called "Ecstasy of Order" made in 2010~ish. In it most of the greatest tetris players get together and have the first world championships. at the time there are 3 players who claim to have a maxout, Thor, Jonas and Harry. Ben is shown to have a Twin galaxies score of 800k~around that time and he himself confirms not having a maxout. So him being listed as 2008 is just a typo.

I think this is relevant here.  The NES Tetris Scene currently keeps a note of all known players that are mentioned to have ever maxed out, (gotten a score of 999,999 aka the nr1 spot on the leaderboard) along with their proof of their claim. And this includes all 11 people listed in TG currently plus a ton more. This is all documented in a sheet made and updated by me (Jesper N) and Chris F. As of writing this message, the number of people who have achieved a maxout with strong proof is over 300 people, and the number of people who claim a maxout in general is around 350. All this along with their proof can be found in in the Maxout sheet: https://tinyurl.com/TheMaxoutList 
I guess I also should mention that this isnt a plug, it's all volunteer work with no profit motive. i just thought it was relevant to anyone viewing this leaderboard

Thanks @MegaTech 

@BenMullen Could you confirm this so that we may notify admin and get the dates changed?
