    I came across an old forum post about a speedrun for The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening by Ryan Williamson.
    https://www.twingalaxies.com/showthr...orld-Record-!!

    The time announced is 2:07:49, but in the database, Ryan has a 2:07:39. A 10 second difference. Must be a typo by Kelly Flewin.
    In the forum post on page 3, post #23, Ryan says he used using save/quit on his speedrun, which isn't allowed by the current rules. Looks like the rules got changed some time after Ryan's run.
    Although Ryan suggests banning Save & Quit, his run being here on the category which bans Save & Quit means his run is invalid here.

    I suggest correcting the time to 2:07:49 and the rules be updated to allow the Save & Quit technique or make a new category allowing the Save & Quit technique since that's what the track seemed to be originally.
