@omargeddon:

This is the way I see it. If a someone getting a #1 score is important enough to them, then they probably should deem it important enough to have some sort of video proof to go with the recognition they'll get for being the top dog. For scores like 4th, 5th, 6th place, etc., then to be honest, I really don't care if they have video or just a photo. One thing to also consider ... what if you're the first person to submit to that track? In my honest opinion, that needs video. Not everyone is going to know what "First-Trophy" scores are "easy" or "hard" to beat ... and what may be easy to one may not be easy to another ... or even anyone else. What we don't need is to have a first-trophy score become a target for the community to begin questioning its legitimacy when 2, 3, or 4 years pass and nobody is able to beat it (or people don't even try). That does the community no good, and to be honest, that does the actual player who got the score (but only submitted a photo) no good, either.

I see dudes on here who literally submit nothing but photos, that's cool and all, and I'll vote yes on their scores if they're like 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, etc. (even 2nd) ... but if they're the top score, I just won't vote on it at all, and let the rest of the community decide if that's the route they want to continue to go down. Seldomly will I vote no for a photo ... it does happen, but not often. One would have figured we would have learned from our mistakes with the Liduario fiasco not too long ago. Perhaps the 6 no votes the person who wrote that comment received is because the community at large is transitioning away from accepting just a photo anymore ... too many people have been busted too many times submitting too many fake scores ... not saying he is, but people have, and maybe the community is finally fed up with it ... which is why he's getting 6 no votes. I highly doubt those 6 no votes are from the same person with a troll account, otherwise, everyone else would also have 6 no votes somewhere ... and the only ones complaining about no-voting "trolls" for video are ... you guessed it ... people who aren't submitting video for #1 scores. Oh well.

Lastly, there is a reason why "Video desired" is an option when voting no. I'm not quite sure some of the members here that have an issue with people voting no for lack of video have considered that.

@ZilchSr: If we want to improve this site, this great site, let's record videos. Most people do it well, we have the way to record videos. I don't understand other people because they don't want to record. Many players want to improve the site. Do not make it worse.

I agree with all of what you just said. However, I can't imagine anybody in this world wants to watch me play Astrosmash for four hours.

@doguhnew: It doesn't matter if they were 15 Hours of Gameplay. The video will be there, the good evidence will be there. That is the important thing to record video. Thans for voting.

@doguhnew: Like this http://highscore.com/scores/Atari2600/YarsRevenge/17254 8 hours of play, the good evidence is there. Who will watch the 8 hour video? . I watched the first 20 min and I accelerated the video, to know the skill of the player, that is the important thing to see in the video if the player can really have High Score. That player who has never recorded a video for years, how will we know when that player has a High Score and only shows photo evidence?

Yeah, I know, I was just joking about video length. Nobody watches the whole thing. The bigger concern for me is to actually film for several hours. I just use my phone, and it can get qutie hot after some time.

I've already got a fan, and cooling pad for my Intellivision(s). I suppose I can do the same for my phone. Not a bad idea! Happy playing today!

@doguhnew: I know *I* certainly wouldnt blame anyone for not wasting 12 hours of their life away watching my 7M Defender score. I sure as hell wouldn't watch 12 hours of *anything* LOL, much less someone else's video game performance. Two things: 1. Validation of long plays are inherently being crowd sourced. Between everyone viewing 5 or so minutes of footage, you get enough of them and likely any evidence of foul play in that video will eventually be caught due to the sheer numbers of viewers watching various small portions of footage. 2. Not only that, but as the submitting player, the video acts as a built-in defense mechanism if someone were to accuse the player of malfeasnace. The player could simply respond, "Oh yeah? Where in the video do you see what you are claiming?", and effectively shuts down any controversy before it even starts, from that point forward. 3. It give voters an opportunity to assuage any concerns about the legitimacy of the run. The footage is there to peruse at their own leisure.

Totally agree. The video is the end all, be all for arguments. I use videos on all my posted scores these days. That being said, it's really sad to think that there are people out there who would cheat on a high score, just to get their user name on a website. That's really pathetic.
