Sorry for the delay, I've been busy with all sorts of stuff.

Since whatever happened happened over a decade ago, there's no point in going over it, so I've re-enabled your account for stat submissions.

Okay, 2 weeks passed, and so far, I wasn't successful contacting Gerbil, neither here nor in Discord. Is there anything else I can do? Like I said, I don't want to discuss the things I still have open in public, so the TSC channel on the SSC Discord server is not really an option (and I don't want to use it just to get noticed).

Alright, I sent him a message on Discord yesterday. Let's see what will happen.

Try DMing Gerbilsoft, he is pretty much the sole person who keeps the site up and has the most (if not all) the say-so as far as restoration of your account

Hello all, I finally decided to do this.
Back in summer 2009, I've been called out for cheating by some of you, and not much later, banned from using submissions. If I don't have to, I don't want to go in depth of what exactly happened and why it happened, I just want to state that I was an a bit immature youth back then, and that that was definitely one of the pages in the story of my life I'm least proud of. But it is what it is. I'm sorry for causing trouble, and I hope we can interact on better terms in future.
Also, there are some smaller issues I want to talk about, but not here in public. Is there any mod/admin that I can send a message to? I also have Discord, but not with the nick I have here.

Best wishes,
Andy

First of all, you know there are better places to get my attention than a dead forum that someone happened to mention to me about. If you're going to accuse me of cheating (and yes, I consider claims of advanced controller input cheating), then you should at least do it in a place where it is reasonable to expect me to see it.

I do use dolphin when I TAS, but all my RTAs are 100% on a wii (or lately a wii u), with a wiimote.

A lot of my times are from long before Dolphin existed or had proper wii support. If you're specifically concerned about more recent ones, here are some videos and proofs of runs I've done in the last several years (admittedly I haven't done a ton). These aren't all on the site because I stopped submitting to this site.

You can see both the video quality gap and the play gap between these and the videos I post of TASes (on Twitter, or further below in this post). The PS9 video pretty explicitly shows that I'm playing on a TV. Technically it doesn't "prove" anything because I could just be displaying an emulator run on a TV and then re-capturing, but these are clearly timestamped as done years ago and not in response to this. I've also played Secret Rings live in front of people before, and streamed me doing Alf Layla with controller cam on Twitch before.

I agree that advanced controller input gives a massive advantage. And I am a huge advocate of using proper control schemes, and have campaigned for more restrictions on controllers across multiple games including storybook sonic games. My main motivation for this is that I don't want someone using some trivializing control scheme when I've put a lot of effort into using motion controls to the best of my ability.

I'll leave you with this - it's a tool assisted reference point. This is a better approximation of the kind of time you get if you use Dolphin and their implementation of "hold key down to automatically shake", not baby 45.21 like I have or a 45.31 like you have.
