    Segmented runs are listed under tas (though there isn't any way to differentiate between them on dsda afaik) NM Tyson? That isn't possible except in rare cases because the enemies respawn (the requirement is to exit map with all enemies dead). Tyson with -fast is on dsda though (look for GM Tyson). Runs with weapon limitations are on dsda in various spots, marked with a note and placed in the associated parent category. I've seen a lot of ssg-only maxes. One notable run that immediately comes to mind is Red-XIII's pistol-only demo for plutonia 30.

    Ah, thought there was a missing comma there 😂

    We've done some really fun wad races in the discord with this setting (NM Lite), and it's been pretty interesting, although naturally a mixed bag.

    UV0S, which would be the same as UV Speed in many cases, but an interesting challenge / distinction in routing for others.

    It's not about the category being a good or bad idea. We don't have a hard set list of categories and we don't discourage anyone from running anything they want. Example fun categories: ballerina / tornado, sightseer, pacifist respawn, anti-sherlock 😃 The closest thing to an "official" category list is what dsda shows, but this is just how Andy organizes things. I wanted nomo100s (-nomonsters, 100% secrets) to be an "official" category so we did a full table of runs for perdgate, which led Andy to make it a separate category on dsda, and some other people have started recording for this as well. If you take something seriously, other people will too, and I think that applies to most games / communities. (I can't imagine jump demos getting a distinction on dsda besides "other" but don't let that stop you.)

    Not sure how it came off, but I meant that lots of new runners have more potential and skill than they give themselves credit for. Sometimes a change in mindset can go a long way; that's what I meant about having more ambition. I agree that it's more beneficial for newcomers to route and run things that no one has done yet, but it's also positive to look at some of the iwad runs and think "I could beat that." I'm not sure what you meant about the "dsda is an archive, not a rule book" thing. I did a search of that and it looks like the context was about whether "uv fast" or "uv-fast" is the proper syntax? That is a running meme in the discord, so it wasn't a particularly serious comment, although I do stand by it. 😃

    Not everyone will agree with me, but I see the improvement of e1m1 to 8s in particular as one of the true, culminating achievements in doom speedrunning that is actually within our grasp. I think shockblast could do it, but only with an extended, concerted effort (I forget his exact pb from when he tried it before, low 9.1x?). Not really in the scope of this thread but the main thing new runners lack, in my experience, is ambition. People like zeromaster don't let human limits or impossibilities hold them back, and look at the results 😃

    The funny thing is twitch already took multiple actions that resulted in massive loss of videos in the past, so this isn't even a crazy idea (changes to highlight and past broadcast storage conditions, the huge event where they muted many videos, random tech issues, etc)

    ZDoom itself is actually at the final version now (unless they started it up again), so at least for that purpose it's fine from now on. But, I think most people lean to gzdoom anyway.

    I'm not trying to be mean, but if you walk into a community and tell them they need to embrace the modern era of speedrunning, it's going to sound a little off, especially if your post is full of misinformation :P

    Hm, I'm not sure where it was posted on here, but I think @4shockblast at least has the demo saved somewhere, maybe he can reupload it. @Dokta Whawee it's immediately evident from your post.

    I'm assuming this is just a shitpost, since the alternative is someone who doesn't understand anything about the community jumping in and acting like they do. But, I'll respond anyway. 1) Jump demos date back far into the past, and anyone can do them (and compete) if they so choose (even see obscure packs, like the heretic nm jump runs seen here: https://www.dsdarchive.com/players/andrey_budko). Also, more recently, Ancalagon did a cool run of doom 2 on zandronum. 2) As you can easily see on dsda, we already track anything that anyone wants to run. 3) The existing records aren't remotely unbeatable or optimized. 4) Jump demos usually make things less interesting in my experience (having watched a lot and also made some myself) - it just trivializes too much by default. 5) There are many reasons why demos are great, but I'm not going to write a book here.
