Discussion: Rules for "Other Records" category

Post by Flo »

So far the "Other Records" category has been used to gather all records that didnt fit in any of the other categorys.
I would say the most serious aspect about these has been the elite area subtasks, but there is quite a bit of messed up stuff in there.

Anyways, I think getting a completely consistent ruleset in place will be difficult, since the acomplishments are so diverse.

I would go in the lines of allowing almost anything that is at least slightly different and superior in some aspect to any other record. This would include NM records, records specififc to one class (e.g. solo fow as dervish), and most other stuff.

A rare example for a record that would not be fine in my eyes is the 8man R/A record posted a while back (viewtopic.php?f=36&t=2356) since every aspect of this record was done better/faster/with less people in another record (8man and solo DoA records in the elite areas category).

Imo these records should follow the same video requirements as all other records according to the pure/standard/tas specifications as stated in the records rules general post (viewtopic.php?f=17&t=2004).

Please give your thoughts.

While I am impressed by your passion for Radio and Television Arts, the undergraduate broadcasting program at Ryerson University in Toronto, I am a little confused why you would bring this up here...

sums you up, really...
Does anyone actually care about the Other category? It's just something fun for people can post unusual records where they make up the rules themselves.

I personally see it as pretty much that and that does not necessarily cause harm.
