High Score updates not working

I submitted two very high scores for Super Mario Bros. NES yesterday and they're still not even up yet. The notice said to wait just a few hours.

Just wondering when my new scores will be up,thanks!

Speaking as someone who used to validate scores for a long time, (Back when there were a large group of people doing it.) there can be so many scores that it is simply not possible to validate them all quickly.

As far as I know there are maybe 3 or 4 doing this task and it wouldn't be full time as they have real lives and real jobs too. That can make it take even longer. Please be patient and I am sure it will get done in due time.

Cheers!

Understandable,but damn I've been waiting 4 days now lol. That's super long. I followed all of the prompts correctly too when I've submitted my score,so it's weird that the system didn't catch it. I also submitted another high score and that too strangely did not get on the board. I did get in touch with an admin btw,and still waiting for a response.

I would play the game again(record it this time) and beat my own high score even to see if it would record my score,but wish to see the scores I've submitted because I put in a lot of time in that game already as it is.

I am the true #1 champion of Super Mario Bros. btw now! Just can't wait to see my scores on the board,and want to know why it's taking so long.

Re: High Score updates not working

Sorry for delay in communication. I was waiting to hear from other score mods to see how they would handle it as there were a couple issues. It is approved now.

The problems:

1. You use Start To Pause. This is against our rules. We wont delete the score for this but please don't do it again. Start To Pause makes the score more difficult to moderate and annoying for other players to watch. But the biggest problem is it makes the verification files very large which in turn increases the chances of the server losing your score. Which almost happened in this case.


2. On level 3-1 of SMB there is a trick to gain up to 99 lives. By our rules this is allowed as long as you don't gain the lives, die, repeat the level and gain the lives again. Which you did not.


3. But a question came up when you intentionally killed nearly all of those extra lives to repeat levels and rack up points. Part of our delay was deciding how we wanted to handle this. Our rules say you can do this only if there is a limit to how long it can be done. We had to find out if there was a limit or if we needed to change that rule. There is a limit - 99 lives from level 3-1 plus any other lives you get along the way so the limit is around 120 lives.

Twin Galaxies handles this problem by saying you can only use 5 lives max. None of our top SMB scores use under 5 lives. All our top SMB scores intentionally burn through lives to some degree.

We think the TG SMB rule is better than ours but we want one set of rules for every game instead of a bunch of special exceptions and rules for individual games. So you did not break the farm rule and we are not changing it just for one game. So the SMB rule is as long as you don't repeat the level 3-1 turtle trick you can farm as much as you want. Score approved.
