I am sorry to announce, but after talking with JTB on this, we cannot approve the scores due to the fact they aren't full runs. The hand cam quality doesn't matter to us, we just want full runs of suvrival. Everything else was done right for the specifications required to update the leaderboards. I'm sorry again, but we can't approve these scores, especially with how rough survival for karma is. Please have full runs if you wish to submit again.

Done. I made them public but unlisted in my channel. The 3 links are a few posts above, starting with this one:

An arbitrary and somewhat dumb criterion, since it means any Survival runs that just get lucky (luck being a big factor in Survival), and weren’t recorded from the beginning are automatically left out of the forum’s leaderboard.
The want to “approve” scores with arbitrary criteria when the game itself is so obvious as to what is real and what isn’t is rudimentary at best. Specially when there’s evidence to support submissions. Evidence that can’t be falsified, btw.

That said, no harm done, man, no need to apologize.

I take back part of my last post, specifically calling the criterion “dumb”. I hadn’t considered the reason for its employment could be to not open the gate for future submissions like mine.

Requesting full run submissions does seem arbitrary to me, but I couldn’t think of a better way to ensure vericity of submitted runs.

Therefore, while it’s a shame for runs that weren’t recorded from the beginning (and while I don’t think hand-cam recorded footage of a Survival mission on its Master Ninja round could be falsified), I understand the criterion and agree with it.

As said before, we need a full run to update the leaderboards. I know survival is a pain in the ass to run, but that's just the rules as of 6/04/20

The videos are quite old, before the update to the rules in mid 2020 where you need a full run + kill score but the only video to show kill score like his lunar run at the end and the others do not, so I'll show at least his lunar run and ask around with other admins/mods if I can post the others to update the forum

I cannot update the scores due to the rules of them not showing kill score despite how old the runs are but i can still post them on the thread so i'll just post them here
