Judging is the part of the publication process where the submission is looked at and it is evaluated whether or not it follows the Movie Rules, what Class the movie falls under, and whether it meets the qualifications for that class. This process is performed by Judges, Senior Judges, and sometimes Admins. In this process, a Judge first claims the submission for judgment to avoid having other judges look at the same movie redundantly. They then do any necessary research, including but not limited to watching the movie, potentially testing the game themselves, and asking for feedback. If improvements pop up, it must be decided whether or not it should either be resubmitted or whether it is acceptable to replace the submission file with the improvement. Once any necessary research is performed and the conversation and improvements have settled down, the judge makes a decision, with a judgment note describing the reasoning behind the decision.


Judges are members of the site experienced with the process of creating tool-assisted speedruns that have been entrusted with the responsibility of approving or rejecting movies that have been submitted. Judges are the people who decide which movie content ends up being present on the site.
