*sigh*
Looking through this thread, it seems most of the posts are relevant only for the day they are posted on. If you check it a day or more late, you have no idea what they are talking about.
You could petition Jim to make his post in this topic first, then copy it into the board top for the day.  He might say yes just because the interface to change the board top has no preview or BBC helper buttons.

Good point Shadow, I talked to Jim about that and hopefully he'll copy all the front page posts into this topic as well from now on.  I'll get it started for him.

December 29th, 2015
Steven Zwartjes, a legendary oldschool-era player, unties the original Archives Agent 0:17. (December 29, 2000)
Sterling Neblett, the very first Goldeneye champion, unties Streets Agent 1:15 back in the non-lookdown era. (December 29, 2000)
Sterling Neblett, the very first Goldeneye champion, unties Caverns Agent 1:04. (December 29, 2000)
Bryan Bosshardt unties Archives Secret Agent 0:56. (December 29, 2002)
Wouter Jansen unties Jungle 00 Agent 0:58, a brilliant 4 second untied that wouldn't be tied for 3 years. (December 29, 2003)

EDIT - Also added a Discuss It link to the bottom in small text, if you have anything you want to add to Jim's writeup like personal memories about that record or a link to the video you can click to go right to this topic and post about it from now on.

Caverns Agent 104 using 1.1 and no lookdown is sort of still ridiculous...
although Wouter's 103 1.1 no lookdown and no elevator weapon switch warp is even more crazy honestly...

Wow, that's awfully nice of Jimbo. I didn't want to make more work for him since this is a labor of love anyway. I was mainly hoping to nudge people into making posts like Xerxes just did, that at least hint at what they are talking about, rather than something like "wow, five years later that's still insane!"

Either that or I felt like whining ;)

This Day in Elite History (December 31st)
Perfect Ace unties Maian SOS PA 2:02, which currently stands as the longest untied record in the history of the Elite. The Vid - It's Been Eight Years. (2007)

My post from the Facebook page:

"Do you remember what you were doing roughly 8 years ago? Today marks 8 years since Ace untied Maian SOS PA 2:02, and it remains untied today - easily the longest standing untied in the history of the Elite. It astounds me how no one has challenged this record, and even Boss has come up short in his attempts."

Who else remembers this golden day Illu got Facility 00A 0:55? I remember being a little salty because I wanted to get it first and he skipped 0:56 (but luckily Karma happened and he spent 5 years on 0:55 SA :nesquik:). But he made such a great video with the epic Casino Royale song when he became (proven) GE champ and the 0:55 was some huge surprise at the end of the video.

Such good, relevant times.

Depot SA is a cooked level that needs a video with its history. The historic Wouter untieds, the first Alex/Mouser 2.x run in 2006 that caused controversy, the epic Luke PAL comeback 0:43 run, 2.x and the various strats associated with it and then the Superpad controversy. 0:40 was "untied" by two other people before me, then took 1.5 years to be tied (despite it being the most irrel record on the ranks at that time) and that too by Eric (not saying he's bad, but an RIEB was so unusual to see!) and then was subsequently tied by about 400 people within the next few months. Then Eric was so close to 0:39 but Goose sniped it after about 70 40s. I still remember him saying something like "Depot SA is one of the worst levels" and then "OMG I just got it" in I believe Illu's stream.

Wow, the legendary DC 0:46. Everyone thought this was an epic time because noone had even failed a legit 0:46 before. Was a pretty epic month with Clemens on fire getting multiple WRs and eventually passing Boss, making Boss so salty he made a thread or some post calling out Clemens which I think he later deleted. Eventually Boss accepted Clemens was the better player. I exposed 0:46 after only a couple of months though and even choked 0:45 (possibly 0:44) at the end. 2008 was such a great year.

Ace these posts of yours are amazing. Eventually I'd love to go back and note all of these for their dates if we ever make a program that does this automatically. (i.e. add subnotes to each cell in Excel containing the time, would be added in top eventually each anniversary)

Thanks mate. Yeah my memory is still pretty good with the most of the records from that era since I was so deep cooked with the games. Unfortunately I don't remember much about the 1:18 grind since I was away from the Elite (from July 2008 - February 2010) but everyone knows it's a top 5 cooked PD record. I set 1:20 in December 2007 during my PD rampage and it was a pretty solid run. Even had the one-blast double kill. 1:18 is just going super quick overall and I don't see it being tied any time in the foreseeable future. Not many have expressed interest in that level and it's an insane time.

Bunker 1 00 Agent should also have a video of its own history. One of the three levels Jimbo's had an untied on so it's probably special to him at least! This WR was a pretty straightforward 1:07 when the Boris running strat was first used to get a WR in mid 2007, although if that strat never existed we'd see 1:06 for sure now (Clemens and I both got that sometime in 2010, his and I believe I never uploaded mine) and possibly 1:05. Remember when Clemens posted a 1:04 which shocked everyone? Even had a missed warp. I tied 1:04 around 2.5 years later on a run with a super bad ending and then Clemens later got 1:03, which I later tied as well. :nesquik: Then he got 1:02 in January 2011, about half a year later, which had a pretty amazing WR post.

The 1:02 story is more interesting. Now from 2011 to 2013, no one really bothered going for this WR. Now I'm not sure if Goose and I started going for 1:02 independently at around the same time, or if I started playing the level right when he did, (a pretty :nesquik: thing I did back in the day with many records like AF1 53, Egypt 45, etc. to expose one of the problems with streaming!) but I started my 1:02 grind sometime in March 2013. Within about 15-20 hours, I had a 1:03 missed warp which was pretty upsetting. Both Goose and I kept going on for this, duping multiple 1:03s, half which were super low and the other half having dumb mistakes. I think he ended up having 9 103s and I had 13 total. The more embarrassing runs were me forgetting about key analyzing during a 1:02 fail (despite having enough time) and Goose's failed 1:02 datathief. Goose streamed daily and it was around this point he started growing to over 100 viewers and got more exposure in the general speedrunning community, while I played offline like a dero.

The day I got 1:02 was pretty cooked. Goose was streaming this one insane run, potentially 1:01 pace with a solid end, but he got trolled and it ended up being a 1:03 so obviously he was devastated. Then about an hour later I got 1:02. I didn't post it in his chat since it'd upset him but he later knew when I posted it to the rankings and then went on a mini rant about how life is irrel (good times, :nesquik:). Eventually he retired from the level. Like a year later, on a top secret channel with a few people including Narcissa (then Cosmo) watching he caked 1:02 pretty fast. The 162 hours is an accurate indication because he kept a total timer for each of his sessions.

Pretty amazing journey I'd say. 2013 was fun. Will 1:01 happen? I failed a legit 1:01, and I'm sure my 1:02 dupe was low. It's a pretty repetitive and boring level but 1:02 will probably be tied by more people in the future I imagine. 1:01 isn't that insane once people get the hang of Boris running into the MF room, but that extra factor + the level being troll enough is probably enough to discourage people from playing the level more.

Edit - Found my 1:06 old strat! Just look at that ending. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gY7n6YCnmFk Apparently I have about 100 unlisted videos on my YouTube channel. :nesquik:

This took me quite a while to get originally and had stopped going for it for a while, but after AGDQ15 decided to try and go for it again and got it within a couple days
At the time I didn't realized how much I was being held back by a really bad condition stick lol, hence some of the ridiculous turns taken in this run

Egypt 00 Agent 0:45 was an epic one for me. We saw Agent 0:45 in mid 2008 and Clemens came close to getting 0:45 on SA around then as well. Back then it was a little harder because we didn't have the better GG room strafing strat and there wasn't anyone really grinding for 45s. It was tight. And a lot harder in 2008. We saw a lot of 46s by various players (including new players like Lockwood!) from 2008-2013 but no 45 since it was still tight and pretty cooked. After Goose streamed Egypt SA/00A 46 attempts for a while, I randomly thought "hmm maybe I should try to 2.x Egypt. I think I can do it" while waiting for my car after college ended. It didn't take long and I think my 00A 0:45 had a solid decimal. Details. I remember after I got it I posted "pwned" in the chat. Obviously there was a lot of salt and controversy because of the 2.x usage and Marc denied the record pretty much. I got 45 SA shortly after. Although it took FIVE years to get the 45s on SA/00A, both of them were tied by Marc and Clemens (both with 1.2) within a couple of weeks.

Wow, this 1:36. Amazing day. I can't believe it's been TEN years.

Basically, I was a PD player from for about six months until I decided to speedrun GE and I quickly realised I was insane at Train. It only took me 2 weeks to get 1:06/1:43/2:12, which at the time was 290 points. Getting 1:06 was WILD. I told everyone in AIM and went ecstatic, and I remember Karl making a joke comment about how he'd pay me 20 bucks if I tied 1:06. Anyways, I played SA more after and failed 1:41 by leaving the Train like 0.01 too early (this was the old strat, when we wouldn't wait outside the Train while Nat did her thing)... but luckily the next day I nailed 1:41 anyway! Felt amazing to get my first GE "untied"... then the next day when I logged on AIM Boss told me "check the boards". Then I see this ridic Train unhoard from Henrik (like 4 SA untieds and 1 or 2 00A ones)... so obviously I become devastated I lose an untied. Such a funny post looking back.. Do read the entire thread if you want info and how people reacted to the strat. I was so salty I claimed crap like 1:40 SA old strat, 1:47 LLTK, etc. Then exactly a year later in February 2007 I started raping the level... lowered all 3 WRs by a good margin.

Amazing discovery though. Surprised people didn't realise that strat before, when it was pretty much used on Agent 2-3 years before it was discovered.

9 year anniversary of Train Agent 1:01 too mate, how could you forget! Good times these were and I can't believe it's been so long now.. it was good to see 1:22 finally happen after so many people got 1:23. It's actually insane when you think about it. From 2003-2007, about 10 different good players played the level and many of them skipped to 1:23 from 1:25. You'd think one of them would get 1:22 since 1:23 wasn't anywhere close to a maxed run but nope. Same thing with 00 Agent 1:42. A lot of people tied that one too despite it being pretty unmaxed.

1:22 lasted for a few months. I believe Boss tied it in summer of 2007, and Clemens & I tied it days apart in fall. Then Boss later sniped a 1:21.. you know when I think about it this level could make a really good folklore / historic video.

Sorry, but your strat is TERRIBLE. As far as I know, I'm the only one that does the ending properly.

Case 1, 2, 3, 4.

The way that the board top reads now, suggests that BB untied Statue OOA 218 (with a time BETTER than 218). I don't feel that it is grammatically correct.

It SHOULD say BB untied Statue OOA 219 with a time of 218, Or BB set a new untied on Statue OOA with a time of 218.

Word-Smythes please offer a more accurate way to verablize.

Thank you.

If he "untied" "Statue 00 2:19", then it means that "Statue 00 2:19" became a 1-way, untied, world record. That isn't very helpful.

The smarter way to put it is to say he untied "Statue 00", with "2:18" right after it, to inform what became the new world record. Just like Jimbo's been writing so far.
