Ban "technique" submittal : LUSENET : MAME Action Replay : One Thread

I request that recordings should be banned or "deleted" if they are submited with the wrong game version. The validity of our archive is degraded by having recordings for games that aren't in the version that is "submited" by the uploaded.

There is already a warning on the submital page to not submit recordings for versions we don't have a version menu option for, but Game Guru apparently doesn't read anything before he submits, i.e. mostly concerned about leaderboard points than accuracy.

When these recordings are deleted they can easily be uploaded again by the user with the correct version.

Sorry man, been one of those days, i'll fix them in a bit!! :-)

you have to delete them and resubmit them WHEN the m36rc2 is available. you can't just go and change the upload to m36rc2, that doesn't fix the internal problem.

also you set one of your m36rc2 recordings to m35rc2. I think these recordings should be deleted, and thus it should be voted on as a "banned" technique.

Incidently, how does the game database get updated for m36rc2 and not the version field on the submit page?

Just curious, not critic...

Pat could tell you more acurately, but i would assume they are two different things that aren't done at once. And sometimes when they are both set correctly people "can't find" the latest beta in the menu and they chose the wrong version anyway. Recently, Del Reily, Game Guru, Lord Axe and Sports Dude have bad uploads for spartanx, romperso, spartanx, ghox, vfive and batsugun the following recordings need to be deleted and submited with the correct version they have recorded with. hopefully this html will work:

THANKS everyone for updating your scores so quickly! sports dude is lagging behind, but i'm sure he'll follow. This really does help the consistancy of the site! thanks again.
