    Dispute Evidence / Rationale
    Still going with the good ol' crap score removal. (I invite anyone else interested in helping clean things up to look at the first link below, find any of those scores that are on TG, and dispute them with a copy or paraphrasing of the text of this dispute.)

    This score was added to the database from an external site. https://goo.gl/wUb5X8 (link to internet archive mirror) Evidence is strong that this site did absolutely no validations of any of the scores, accepting all claims as valid. Just looking at the content of the page, with just a form to "submit" a score, shows this to be likely.

    Further, multiple scores added to the database from this external list have already been disputed and removed due to being impossible, (see this dispute: https://www.twingalaxies.com/showthr...13,343,567,930) which should itself be sufficient to show that nothing on that list should be considered trustworthy. Also, this particular score is attributed to a person that is not a TG user, and has submitted no scores to TG at any point.

    I believe this score does not meet any of the standards for inclusion on TG and should be removed.

    Well, this is uncomfortable... Looks like this one should be reinstated. @Jace Hall , can you help here?

    I'd been trying to remember not to dispute any of yours, I might have gotten distracted with this one. :( Definitely sorry about that.

    Also, was there a reason you never claimed your scores on here with your account?

    Wait, it says the dispute is accepted and the poll is closed, but the score is still there and it's still in the active disputes area?

    (Also, noticed the track name is incorrect, I'll get this fixed)

    Ah, ok. Didn't know if that was your choice or someone else not getting it done. Now I know!
