Isn't that what the Confirm stat page is for? People need to notice their typos on that page.

I've been guilty of that a couple times myself.

But for me, I do look them over, but they seem right to me and I don't give it a third thought I guess.

That rarely happens anymore, though, as I usually type it right the first time. :P

Idea: Implement a 30-second delay on the Confirm Stats page, which forces you to wait 30 seconds after loading the Confirm Stats page before it will allow you to submit your stats.

Also, we could implement a setting that would allow users to turn the delay off after they've been registered for a month or so, or something similar.

Great idea. Except, maybe stick it to 15. 30 is too lengthy especially if you're only submitting one stat.

I could make it something like 10 seconds initially, then +2 seconds a stat past the first stat with a maximum of 30 seconds.

Gerbil: There we go.

That'll work perfectly. Or, why not cut it down to 10 for the sake of argument and then implement the ruling you were talking about.

Good thinking.

1. I always confirm my stats before I even go to the confirmation page >_>

2. Better idea: keep the delay until [user] has hit submit x times, giving them time to get the picture, especially if they don't submit that often.

So....your saying f it beats someones record we should verify it??
Seems reasonable but think about it...not many people are willing to post what they really got without lying.

Final, that's the entire point. If someone can't come up with proof of their stat, and we have given them sufficient time to get proof, then we will assume they are lying and give the proper punishment.

If I missed some part of the process someone please correct me >_>

No, no, no. You're not obligated to give proof always. You're only required to obtain proof of your record if we find it suspicious. Of course you can keep some proof handy just to show us you're trustworthy. :P

Heck, you don't even necessarily need to have proof if you broke a record.  Just if it's suspicious.
Really, these guys have some way of finding fake stats, and it's eerily accurate.  So stay legit and you won't have to deal with anything.

I decided to upload a video describing how our automatic fake stat checker determines if a stat is fake. You can see it here.

he helps run the forums so he can do whatever.
but yes..posting times of like 1-5 seconds or the glitch score from egmmans space level dont count...why?

on the level if you know the correct spot to hover at you can end out with a total score of over 1,000,000

"he helps run the forums so he can do whatever."

Just because he's an administrator and all that bullshit doesn't mean he's immune to rules.
Unfortunately rickrolling isn't a crime, it justs irritates the shit out of some of us...

But yes. There are certain techniques that we do not accept, such as that one you gave as an example from Cosmic Wall. Such techniques make competition less about skill, and more about memorizing how x will give you infinite points. And obviously if you can get an infinite amount of points what's the point of competing over who can get more?

Some less game-breaking techniques are usable, however. You need to submit them to the Freestyle division if they are not allowed normally. For example, the Cannon's Core glitch with Mission 2 and Chao World is usable if you submit to freestyle.

i checked my game today..will submit more score related stuff later..I lack 5 emblems....
Knuckles all A rank

Rouge all a rank
Egman all a rank
tails all a rank
sonic all a rank..

however the videos from here help a lot in showing how to get a ranks or do things far faster..
i think the only thing i wont get a great time for is cannons core mission 3 or 1.
