So, I have been told if I have any ideas for CyberScore, I should let the people over at Cyberscore know about my ideas. I know that my ideas won’t get used but I figured I post my list of ideas for CyberScore. :3
So, for a while, I seen charts that have times without no proof of any kind and some of these times always seem kind of iffy as some users have records that have not been approved and this can make some new users feel like they can’t reach the top time but fear not. I know you guys have no fear but my ideas. (Can’t wait to get some nice looks for this post)
1.1 Auto delete records
Records that have not been approved by CyberScore mods within a time frame of 30 days, should be deleted. If there is no proof, then 30 days still apply. If there is proof but can’t be found and records have not been approved, then 30 days still apply and giving the user a notice to upload a proof to match his / her record.
1.2 Running a game unpatched or patched
As we know, games of the future, have patches to fix a game and sometimes, patches remove speed tricks or glitches. I feel this makes doing time attacks pretty unfair as users can use an unpatched version of a game to get the upper hand.
An easy way to know if someone has an unpatched game is to do a side by side of times. If someone is able to get a faster time then the rest, then you have your answer.
To fix this, charts that should be marked (unpatched) in challenge charts, if you play un-patched then, you use the unpatched challenge charts for that version of the game and patched for the patched game.
Or make 2 charts for games that are played patched or unpatched, like for Sonic R. There is (No OOB) and normal charts for Sonic R, I feel this could be applied here, but that would take time to make things balanced within charts.
Because, when new users or current users see a record like this. It makes it hard to go for a record that may no longer be possible… And that’s not a fun sight to see. But that varies on the person..
CyberScore is a site where players of all skill levels can be competitive with other players, and even push each other to be better at a game and go past their own limits.
This is why I love CyberScore, it’s a competitive site that I like to upload runs or try to beat someone’s time or score for fun by using my skill. We use skill to have a fair and fun time with others.
1.3 Remove records
Something minor but being able to delete or remove a record of a game that you no longer have from your CyberScore page. It looks out of place when you have a record of a game that you no longer own. With a un-approved proof. It looks ugly and out of place. This feature would be nice but this is kinda a moot point since 1.1 is the same.
I feel as of late, what’s fair and skill has hit a grey area and if, that is the case. What is the point of being of being competitive with people or friends who use glitches that make being competitive fun, a waste of time? That’s just my thoughts on this subject.
1 Blog update
1.1 I like the blog feature but let’s say someone has a blog outside of CyberScore. Like using Blogger or WordPress.com I have not used the Blog feature. A neat idea for the blog tab would be to add your blog hosted by blogger or WordPress.com to the URL / contact info, which would show the blog through an Iframe or RSS from the blog tab
That’s it really. The other ideas would be to fix the forum Avi issue and add extra contact info but these have already been done or being worked on and the site is getting updates.
Again, these are just my ideas for CyberScore and I know they won’t be used. BUT! That’s ok. I just wanted to share my ideas and what not with you.
Thanks for reading. ^^
