Well, some people don't, it seems like. We've been notified several times from other people, that the community sucks, cause there is "pros" submitting demos, and this wasn't the original idea. That's right, but it is not easy for us to control who's to submit what.
In fact, everyone is allowed to submit demos, except if they (the demos) are or have been WRs, we also got some complaints about demos that used to be WRs, which are on the list.
ndR submitted a lot of demos lately, and when I saw this, I was sort of pissed, cause the idea of this was an international community where everyone has got a chance(like PK-jumping, that existed about a year ago, if anyone recalls).
I talked to ndR about this on IRC, and according to him, Lolz (Belgian jumper) wanted France to be number one on the top5 list.
If you ask me, that is completely ridiculous, and there is no reason to be proud that your country is #1, cause you have one jumper who dominates the list totally. ndR is also known as one of the best climbers in the world through the past 2-3 years, so it is of course easy for him to get number one on the list.
He said he didn't care about the demos, and we have thought about removing them, by the way. Although we're gonna have some problems getting back the "old" records before him, unfortunately some demos was deleted. We hope that people will resubmit their demos, if it turns out we're gonna remove ndR's demos.
We thought it might have gone too far like this, cause we don't want the list to be almost equal to XJ's, do we?
So we (eusunt and me) have discussed this for a bit, and it's really hard to find a solution, and since we have so many visitors, we thought we'd let the community decide.
We have decided that it is not an option to reset the whole record list, since tons of demos already has been submitted, and it would be a huge waste of time if we did so.
ndR suggested a rule where you could submit demos if you had less than 5 WRs. That sounds nice, although we're gonna have to kick quite some jumpers off the list, which is very sad.
...and what if someone on the record list suddenly has 5+ WRs, are we gonna have to delete their demos?
Well, help us make this a better community!
Write a comment (rather a long, mature one, than "gj"), and make up some solutions for this "problem". If it turns out people think it's fine as it is, it's of course gonna stay that way, but maybe we could get more climbers to join, and get less negative comments about the concept, if we find a solution that's fair for everyone, and fits the community.
I hope I didn't make this too long.
