Wondering why your Scoreboard post hasn't shown up?
All Scores are directly moderated and approved before
being made public in the Forums. ⏱️

What is the Scoreboard And How Does It Work?

The Scoreboard is a Database of high scores achieved by Members in our community. Think of the Scoreboard like a High Score screen at the end of an arcade game. You want to leave your mark! Some arcades have big chalkboards when you first walk in, with handwritten high scores for each game in the arcade. Pretty soon word gets around and everybody knows your initials. The Scoreboard is a place in the forums to come to share your personal high scores. Just like the screen where you enter your initials, posts are in a minimalist bare-bones format. We do it that way so it's easy to find the scores you're looking for. And because a new score is only added if it's the new high score for the page, you know the further you scroll down the higher the scores will be. 

 

Why Is It Important To Post In This Format?

We need your help to keep the Scoreboard easy to read and quickly look up scores! For the same reason a High Score screen on an arcade game keeps things simple and organized, we have to keep our Scoreboard in a simple, organized format too. You need to format your score. Posting a photo with "omg haha this my score still working on it tho!" isn't going to fly. High Scores submitted without being property formatted are subject to editing or removal.

 

Search For Your Game On The Scoreboard Before You Post

Avoid creating duplicate threads for the same game title and system. Before posting, use the search bar at the top right of the page search the Scoreboard Forum to see if a thread has already been started for this game title and console. If it has, you should post your new high score in the existing thread. If not, you'll be the first to post a new High Score!

 

Only Post If You Have The New High Score For The Thread

Post your score only if it's the highest score so far on the page! Think of the Scoreboard like a High Score screen at the end of an arcade game. It's easy to follow. We do it that way so it's easy to scroll down and easily find scores. You know the further you scroll down the page, the higher the scores will be. Please only post if you have achieved a new high score for the thread.

 

Why Do My Scoreboard Posts Not Appear Right Away?

Did you post your score in the Scoreboard, but it didn't immediately appear? That's okay! We've received your score and will review it first before it goes live. Posts to the Scoreboard require approval by a Moderator prior to appearing in the Forums. This is done as a moderation measure to fix improper formatting, filter out superfluous posts and maintain the integrity of the Scoreboard.

The Credibility Of Your Score

The scoreboard is for “Nerd Cred” only. Games are meant to be fun and we don’t have officials on hand to verify scores. The credibility of your score is going to be upon you to make it believable. Posting a YouTube video of your game goes a long way to substantiating credibility. A photo of your score is all that's required, but we strongly encourage recording your gameplay if you can. Especially if you have ridiculous skills and can claim to have rolled the game eight times. It's important to be open and honest about scoring. Using your cellphone to post a video on YouTube is often enough.
