Longest Standing Untied Records
« on: October 31, 2018, 11:08:10 PM »
The question that no one asked but is getting answered anyway: What are the longest standing untied records on The Sonic Center?

I was inspired to research this by the Goldeneye and Perfect Dark community over at https://www.the-elite.net/. There, they have two tables, one showing the top 10 longest lasting untied records ever and another showing the current untied records along with the option to show those tables as they were on an earlier date. While TSC does not have this feature, the data is available to find this manually. There was just this tiny difference where TSC has just a few more games to cover, 55 more or less, with many of them having a significant number of charts. Additionally, several games track time to a value more precise than a second and have competetive ring or score charts, making untied records common throughout the site. With that said, finding the longest lasting untied records ever is a lot of work and will have to wait for a later day, but I did compile a list of all 4139 current untied records on this spreadsheet https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1e7qDY73t_0AVgF6J06apnISeh6d2diKSXM7Zu6zOZSU/edit?usp=sharing.

For convenience, here are the Top 25 current untied records:

Interesting post, I like this kind of stuff, because some records really do stand the test of time. It’s neat seeing whose records have stood atop the charts the longest, who has the most untouchable record in the history of the site.

Tbh my vote is for MickX’s 861 in rings on Leaf Storm 2 with Blaze, that legit requires SIX god damn 50s, a one in over 15,000 chance, and those are odds I am not willing to beat without the internet to stream and capture equipment for my DSi so I can just broadcast each of the thousands of attempts it would no doubt take to replicate such a feat.

The fact that there's an untied record without subseconds for that long surprises me.

The fact that it belongs to Sprint does not.
<Tails> also "GET BLUE SPHERES" on a black-and-white TV remains the best special stage of all time

<Achlys> wat ave you done!
<Spinballwizard> apparently killed your h key

Is it possible to get a data dump of all records on TSC? And not just the 1st places but basically all data on the site.

How far do you wanna go with this all-encompassing data? do you only want the current times that each user has or their entire submission history also? The latter might be a monumental task, but the former at least looks as simple as a spreadsheet.

The data already is there, no task to be made. Gerbil would just have to upload the database somewhere and it's done.
