    Think about it.

    If we accept, then it sets the standard of partial videos can be accepted.
    If we reject, we keep the consistent standard of full video proof.

    I will never accept a person's word alone, no matter who it is, even if it costs me every last credibility point. "Partial video" is literally no different than "I did it because I said so", because the video clips could have been done at any time, during any game, with any number of cheats used. Rejected.

    Don is the real deal and I don't think he would deceive.
    But the removal of evidence seems like poor sportsmanship and I presume it has to do directly with Ken House.

    I also have had a submission pass which was missing some gameplay due to technical issue beyond my control.
    But in this case Don is one of the most respected high level players in arcade gaming and he has a certain leadership role whether he acknowledges it or not.

    JACE is all about the I believe ethereal dream speech so I also respect that since he put his money where his mouth was for this playground.

    But, but.....I am going to abstain purely on personal protest that Don is exhibiting poor sportsmanship.
    But also congrats on the high level performance.

    Its situations like this, where I wish there was an "acknowledge" button. (Simply means an adjudicator is "aware" of the intention, but lacks real full proof , and/or sufficient evidence. An additional 30 day pending window should then remain open on the adjudication, if Don decides to disclose the full video. (again, just an idea)

    Yes, anyone that knows Don personally knows he is a stand-up guy, and anyone who has seen him play live knows he is the real deal. Probably the most important thing here is at least he knows he did it! But yes, due to the integrity of Twin Galaxies "full transparency" status quo here, and to uphold that high standard, I too had no choice but to immediately click that reject button last night, based SOLELY on evidence provided) Unless he changes his mind in the coming days, or until he provides the full video proof, I would swing my vote just as fast. Easy as that!

    Again, no respect lost by me, and its his decision the method he has chosen. Good luck Don.

    I agree and I will be rejecting as well due to lacking evidence. I would like to add that I believe Don did achieve the submitted score, but to me this looks like a blatent attempt to try and get recognition for a score by hiding tactics by not submitting the full performance.

    Marc stated it above and it was presented in Corey's novel thread but itnis a disservice to TGSAP to not have a 3rd voting option.
    Yes-No I Believe ideology is incomplete.

    Here is a tangent story...in the 70s major league baseball was part of our childhood lore. And our family made a trip to St Louis to see a game. It was larger than life experience. So they played the Dodger's and Rick Sutcliffe was the starter. I was a Cards fan but Sutcliffe was awesome. Later in the game Rick got booted for unsporting behavior. I don't follow baseball nowadays but I never forgot that moment when a hero was just an average guy.
    Don I trust is better than that. :)

    I'm leaning towards reject

    Why should Don be a special case of partial video when the rest of us are required by the community rules to post the entire video?
    It shouldn't matter how skilled or who you are, you follow the same rules as everyone else.

    Not even going to reject, I'm not interested in voting on this at all. Partial video, and not even because you forgot to start a recording or anything, but because you're purposely hiding your gameplay. Sorry but I can't even congratulate you on this score, mainly because I can't see most of it.

    First of all, i didn't watch the video. If i wanted to view a partial submission, ill go to YouTube. This is a slap in the face to Jace Hall, his administration and the twingalaxies adjudicators. Records are meant to be broken not rules.
    Donald Hayes was a guest on a reunion pacman killscreen supposedly showing everything. There's a double meaning behind all this., anyways, read the rules, this isnt about cheating or a person. The review submission is about accepting or rejecting, no if and or but.
    REJECTION.
