Another solution would me to use as label the name of the biggest glitch used. "X glitch"
That would be memory/save corruption.

It's not really a warp, given that it just essentially edits the save data.

People also generally only do what they're interested in and don't really take requests very often. EDIT: Also I'm going to be real, it just sounds like you want somebody to beat your game without saves and don't even care about the TAS that much. Additionally your incentive is free publicity and a steam key. TASing is work... a work of love when it's for the games we love but work nonetheless. Offering to pay in exposure honestly gives me worse vibes than not having any incentives at all. Given that you only have one user review on steam, we'd probably be giving you more exposure than the other way around.

There's also the matter of the new Deltarune chapter 1 TAS possibly not being acceptable on TASVideos. The movie rules currently say that the movie must beat the game, which for the version used in the newer Deltarune chapter 1 TAS would mean completing the game through chapter 2. That's as opposed to tendog's Deltarune chapter 1 TAS, which was done on the old demo that only had chapter 1 in it, thus following this rule. This is a rule that I hope will be changed eventually, but it's still there as of now. It would be a cruel twist of irony for the original chapter 1 TAS to be rejected because of the existence of a newer chapter 1 TAS that was also rejected...
Honestly the biggest thing I have questions about: Are the chapters entirely isolated from each other? Or does any sort of progress carry over from chapter 1 to chapter 2? Can you freely select chapter 1 or 2?

2023 Award nominations are now open! Any registered user can post their nominations in the threads linked here. Please keep in mind that multiple nominations are both allowed and encouraged, and that a movie or TASer must receive at least two nominations in order to qualify. Self nominations are not allowed. ...hopefully I did all this right

Personally willing to consider some alternate methods of displaying runs that might not be able to run in one coherent segment. Honestly found that being extremely virtuous about certain things like has to sync in one go is just going to annoy people from outside communities. The big issues we have atm are largely technical and/or related to manpower. So such features might be a ways off.

not sure I entirely like the last sentence of this guideline. Like the first part is decent advice but sometimes goals just won't really mean as much to somebody who hasn't played the game and I think that's ok.

Btw, would it be considered too much if I also gave myself a three-second headstart like Xipo by disabling the tutorial and flashes, or is that fair game? The only setting I adjusted at the beginning was the difficulty level so that both TASes would be on an even playing field.
Is it set thru like dipswitches? I'd consider that an artistic choice more than anything. EDIT: That means you're free to choose whichever if so.

the only thing staff members would actually have access to is all userfiles including those hidden, so you'd need to find a different way to store them.

So if there is an ingame timer you can definitely use that as your justification. Otherwise you could consider it a speed/entertainment tradeoff if you so choose.

I wasn't expecting such immediate results after promoting moozooh, great work. Welcome to the team bigbass.

On topic of DMs and guidance, time for another anecdote: just last month a well-known TASVideos member (name undisclosed in the interest of privacy) DM'd me with a question about pooping—and I gave them an earnest answer to the best of my ability. Un-bowel-ievable, right? Can you imagine the level to which I'm willing to dirty my hands (figuratively, for now) to deal with your concerns?
I hate that I know exactly who did this and why.

I have brought it up amongst staff but I haven't really been open about it publicly. Since becoming admin, I've been dealing with the brunt of difficult moderation decisions and such. This has led to significant amounts of burn out. As such I needed somebody to be able to help shoulder a lot of the moderation work that goes on here. Somebody who can help train and guide other moderators. As such I have created the Senior Moderator position with moozooh as the first ever senior moderator! Thank you for stepping up to this!

I feel standard should not be "we will accept this branch no matter what". I feel it should be "we accept it regardless of entertainment if it makes sense for the game". What would somebody who has played the game before want to see? What would somebody who hasn't? Would people care about the difference between oob clicking and no oob clicking? If there's too many similar branches it feels spammy and is annoying for an audience to sort through. Given that "level skip" is another, more impactful glitch, which combinations of level skip and oob should we publish, were we to get them? I lean against all four because I feel it would be too same-y for even an audience that has played the game before. I'm hard against allowing every possible combination of glitches for any game in standard. Like oob clicking, sometimes L+R saves a lot of time, sometimes it saves like frames at best. I feel getting your own publication because you use/don't use x known glitch/technique that saves a minimal amount of time would be cheap and could potentially seen as leeching off the initial author if it is a different one. As such my personal leanings are "level skip + oob click" and "no level skip + no oob click" since these are the two most distinct branches. However, if the author has a preference towards no oob click in the level skip branch, I feel we should take that into consideration and consider no oob click a speed/entertainment tradeoff. I generally think we should lean in favor of accommodating artistic choices when possible.

The author list is tied to user accounts, changing the author to "psx" sets the author to a completely different user's account. You cannot use this to get the psx name sorry.
