Hi, I'm Steve, #11 on your vaunted list of Gah-la-guh scores. I hope the recent tournament creates renewed interest in this and all the great games in this series. My PB on 5 ships/normal fire is around 2.5m and next time it is in a tournament like Battle of the Arcades or something similar I hope to improve on the 1m or so score listed here.

Cheers and Best Wishes

Hi Guys! George Strain here. Good to see the new site taking shape. Hope it attracts a lot of scores. I just sent something in to the MAME 5-lives track for fun.

A couple of suggestions:

1) On the scoreboards, for scores which have videos or MAME inp files available, include a link to them.
2) Make new users go through some sort of activation process, or otherwise monitor the forums for spam. I speak Russian and even I don't want to read the Russian spam.
3) The Submissions for Adjudication->Adjudication Requests thread says "Please post a reply for scores to be adjudicated" but you can't actually reply to the thread.
4) I think adding scoreboards for Fast Fire is a good idea. Yes, it's much easier, and for top players a bit like shooting fish in a barrel, but there are tons of Fast Fire machines out there and IMO it can be a good "stepping stone" for learning the more difficult normal shot speed.
