does the poll just lack the option for multiple choices by the software or by your choice?  I trust TGSAP as well as specific speed run records since different moderators are well different

It was my first poll and I had the option of allowing multiple votes but I chose 1.  Tried to edit it and change but it no allow to change that part.  So I make new options so you can vote for both.

In the summer that you came
There was something eating everyone
And the sunshine fund was low
We couldn't greet you with a simple hello

Depends on the game. Speedrun records on SR.com are way more legit imo.
PBs:

DK: 702,100 at 1,040,000 pace
1-1: 11,800
1-2: 22,700
No Hammer: 562,800
Lvl 2: 50,400

It cannot be more legit that the current new TGSAP process at Twingalaxies.

Reason be is that speedrun only do show a video of the gameplay.


Speedrun.com:

A submitted game entry do not show the gamer play the game and if a TAS was used or not, which can very be the case for any speedrun.
Also do not show if original hardware was used as part of the video.

IMO TGSAP do show:
- Gamer playing the game
- Original hardware
- Game been played

Some could be bias towards TG submitted process becuase they did not try it out themselves and are influence by the past....some previous records that were "approved in the 1980s" via word of mouth and a picture but that was also the case of any gaming record keeping not only TG.

I have a score at Speedrun and I show myself playing. 

I also have at least 1 Aracde score at TG where I DO NOT show myself or the PCB. It's not required.
