Good news :)
A new C-N results update is available for download.
I had doubts.
I finally created Movie tables for Ultimate Doom and Doom II. Two questions arise:
1. Why there are no Tyson movies listed on this page?
They are sort of invalid or what? I'm referring to 44:49 Episode 1 by Radek Pecka, 79:51 Episode 2 by Patrick Martin and 103:01 Episode 3 by Patrick Martin. All in all, they ARE present on my list. I hope I didn't do anything wrong.
2. If I understand well, current Doom2 Episode 1 UV Speed record is 6:00 by Paska, as any full UV run also automatically counts in Episode 1 category?
Third doubt which has nothing in common with the movie category...
3. Recently didierbertrand asked a question about cs21-150. This is a fairly slow, "just to survive" demo by Joan Baguda and it fits in NM Speed and NM100 categories for Classic Episode, E2M1. I see nothing wrong with this demo, so I assumed I just missed it, thus it is now included in the Class_ep section. However, this demo is nowhere to be found here. If someone knows any details regarding this old demo, please let me know.
Now onto: 2010 summary (this text was prepared beforehand :) )
I'm not lucky enough to have witnessed Compet-N in its glory, running smoothly supervised by Adam H and Adam W. In the archived news I found some statistics... as Never Again let me keep record of new records, starting from January 2010, I could easily provide some Hegyi-style stats "as if nothing had happened at all".
On a subjective note:
# 187 single-player demos recorded in 2010
31 of them were for IWADs,
156 demos were for PWADs.

Ultimate DOOM - 5 demos
DOOM II - 6
Evilution - 4
Plutonia - 16
AV - 24

Requiem - 24
# Category breakdown(*):

UV Maxes - 35
Nightmares combined - 27

A very active year. Browsing through this thread I found only about 100 demos in 2009, so the increase is very significant. No heroic achievements from Guiddqd, Henning Skogsto or Never Again this time, but three new players hopefully made up for that. In peak months we could watch more than one demo per day. Categories: This year featured an amazing activity in the UV -fast category; Pacifists and Tysons were extremely rare. WADs: There were many, many MM2 demos (even if one MM2 freak didn't post his demos at all, MM2 would still have won :-P). IWAD demo activity has practically disappeared, except Plutonia, but OTOH we witnessed milestone achievements among those few, such as MAP30 Tyson (Doom II) or MAP09 Nightmare (Evilution). There was only one Classic Episode demo, but it was the first one since 2006 (and keep in mind WHO was the recorder :) ) Players: Out of the Top Five only Revved stayed equally active in both halves of the year (23 demos until end of June / 20 after June). The rest was much more active in the first half of the year than in the second (kimo_xvirus - 18 demos until end of June / 1 after June; tatsurd-cacocaco - 24 / 6 respectively; Eugene - 12 / 0, and so on).
