Post Rodrigo Ban and Variation Leaderboards

This question is mainly for "SincerelyFranny".

I just noticed the following moments ago when checking out the leaderboard for the Sega Dreamcast title "Crazy Taxi".

There are several individual variations that no longer have a 1st place record holder. I've provided screenshots for two of these below but there are more.

    I found the same curious issue with the XBox title "Simpsons Road Rage" including an example where there was no more 2nd place record holder (see below)

    the same thing happened with ron corcoran, but did not happen with todd rogers (or at least to the best of my knowledge itdidnt happen with todd). Burgertime intellivision still has an empty spot too. I can only assume that was a ron score.

    if tg would like to make a formalized process to deal with these, then please add intellivision burger time to the list

    Not speaking on the ban in particular, because I don't want to.

    Looks like Rodrigo's scores are "erased" properly on Super Mario Kart on SNES, at least, there don't appear to be any gaps in numbers for position.

    So evidently, it's not a problem "across the board", which will likely make it more of a pain to suss out...

    I told SIncerelyFranny via E-MAIL that I never bothered to check Post Corcoran/Rogers deletions...could be this is the way that the database is designed to behave...but for anyone new who is unfamiliar with historical actions taken it will look mighty confusing.

    those blank spots effect esi as well. for example, when its not a first place, if you beat the hidden score you still get credit or it. so it does matter.

    Thanks for reporting. :)

    This is something only @admin staff can fix. The message will be relayed and hopefully we can resolve it soon.

    Against my own advice, I am guilty of double clicking submit. T_T

    He had #3 here on Columns.


    Also the game image for this one needs to be replaced

    There's also still the problem, when multiple people have first place scores--let's say 10 people. The second place score will be listed as 11th place. So each 1st place score below the first one listed is actually being calculated as 2nd, 3rd etc..I'd have to think that's messing a lot with ESI.

    Probably why I'm not listed in the number 1 spot on that Ferrari game @Rogerpoco I'm being calculated as 2nd place on my second-listed first place scores.

    I think if that got fixed site-wide, there'd probably be some big shifts in the ESI across the board.
