    The score ending in 43 is impossible but, in this case, the score holder has given a credible statement. An incorrectly-entered score seems much more likely than 43 continues.

    This has been deliberately left open for more discussion but, in the meantime, we are considering changing the score on the database. This is not something Twin Galaxies would ever do lightly. The dispute will remain open.

    So has there at least been a photo submitted showing this? I thought that was coming wasnt it? Some type of proof other than a profanity laced tirade telling everyone off here?

    i cant possibly agree with this enough.

    look of course TG should take its time. Now that leo has said someone misentered its well worth searching for that photo. Take all the time in the world to find the original evidence and leave this dispute open, but please dont just change it to a possible score thereby hiding the evidence based on word alone. Why not just change all of Todd's score into score with possible digits? Why not just move Billy's scores to mame?

    Is the purpose of the dispute system to catch and remove incorrect scores? Or is the purpose to let people know where they messed up and give them a chance to revise their lie until they finally come up with a believable one we cant disprove -- note i'm not calling leo a liar, its totally possible his score is real. But certainly, if his word is viewed as good enough, others will see that, and while leo may not be a cheater, the real cheaters will look at the decision made here and know all they have to do to get away with it in the future is simply revise their story until all the smoking guns are removed.

    Are you ever going to remove these bad scores or are you still waiting to hear back from the gamer as to what score he wants you to enter? It's been three months with little to no further discussion.

    In fairness to Leo this score should be removed. It's easy to reinstate it once he provides a photo showing the correct score.

    What are the other options? Leave up a known bad score or change it to something like 454,800. Either choice gives the appearance of impropriety. You might as well just put an asterisk next to the player's name. That'd be a ridiculous punishment for a data entry error.

    This dispute has been open for more than 13 months. What is TG waiting for? The score is impossible under the track rules.
