ATTN: EVERYONE
« on: August 23, 2018, 11:54:51 am »
Please, please, PLEASE double-check the DIFFICULTY of the time you are about to post before submitting your record to the rankings. At least once a week we see multiple second untieds, often from newer players, posted by the Discord bot in The Elite server. While a gaffe like this is often excused and laughed off by most people, it can cause heart attacks in some cases:



This is a VERY serious matter. Look, I know most people are too exhilarated after achieving a record to pay attention to the submit record form, but come on. I may have to submit a merge request to the rankings code to emphasize or increase the size of the difficulty text. Scott being a very reasonable person will surely approve it of given the frequency of this problem.

Thanks.

I remember I accidentally submitted my first time (bunker 1 agent 21) on the-elite as SA and panicking lol.

Simple fix: require confirmation before submitting if it is an untied, for example in this case it would say "You are submitting Pelagic II on Special agent as a 47 second untied. Are you sure this is correct and not a typo?"

I remember someone submitting an Archives Agent 0:02 a few months back. When I was fresh to the rankings I accidentally posted an archives agent 0:16 when I was trying to post 25, I don't know how I got the two confused  :nesquik:

It would help to have Agent selected by default because an actual SA or 00A time submitted as A will be just garbage instead of an insane untied claim.

I like the confirmation screen too (in any case, not just untieds).

Simple. Also for untied slaying WRs.

yeah should take about 5 minutes for someone to code that, so expect to see it completed around the year 2025.
