Don't close this thread, Mal. Wait a few days after EVO is released. Then you will see. Personally I don`t think I´m coming back, because two Trialsgames takin too much time. I will concentrate on EVO. Perhaps there are many others who thinks the same. Perhaps there are some Trialsfreaks who want to play all those great tracks on TrialsHD first before they are taking a look at EVO.
I was only talking about closing the leaderboard to new track submissions, not new replays on existing tracks. I am indeed one of those "Trialsfreaks" who wants to finish some THD goals before I move on to Evo, and those goals include zeroing every Level 1 track and passing the three Level 5 tracks.
But I really doubt anyone will still build new Ninja tracks in THD once Evo is out given the power of the new editor. If people still want to play some old classic THD Ninjas and submit new replays I have nothing against that!
But this is your thing, Mal! At last it is your decision to close this one, or open a new one for EVO. Or you will take your time on both threads.
I will not be doing one for Evo. As much as I love this thread, it's become like a second job for me... it just takes up too much of my time. With Track Central in Evo I'm positive that so many more Ninja tracks will be discovered, so it would be even more work. I mean, even in THD I'm sure there are tons of NInja tracks out there that no one has discovered just because of the terrible Friend-List Track-Sharing system.
If someone wants to PAY me to run a Ninja Leaderboard for Evo (enough so I could quit my regular job), then I'd happily do it, and put more work into it too - perhaps like trialshd.net - automating replay submissions, etc.
No matter what you are doing, you are the right man for a Ninjaleadeboard. Nobody will forget this point.
Ah, btw; please upload your sick runs in future too. All right?
I will always do this! In Evo, after I get 100% of the in-game platinums, I plan to focus more on building tracks and playing customs from track creators I really admire, rather than trying to play EVERY Ninja track. But in any case, I will always keep uploading my replays. I didn't buy an HD PVR for nothing!
