Reviewer and FAQ writer. Productivity tends to be on the low side, but I'm an old hand, having been initially on GameFAQs and now both there and here long enough for most people to believe I've been around since the dawn of time. I'm also Dutch, I write software, and I'm something of an old school gamer with a nostalgic focus on the Commodore 64.
Title: Sure racking up the HG points like this. Posted: September 28, 2007 (06:58 AM)
Blue Max proves lucrative. My score entry for it had disappeared (aaaah!), the tiny security hole that I suspect was behind it got fixed by HG yesterday, or earlier today, or however the time zones work. Happy with the fix, I found the screenshot I'd used earlier on my USB stick and submitted a new score entry.
Evidently, HG managed to refind my lost entry in the meantime, so when I returned a few hours later my new entry was accepted AND the old one was back up as well, so that the whole world may see not ONCE how awesome Sash is at Blue Max, but twice.
And the kicker - MY resubmit was worth 80 points, and apparently, so was HG's. Adding the original submission, that's now a total 240 over a single record. That Wii will be mine yet.

I'm not sure why the old submission appeared. Certainly, it wasn't anything I'm aware of having done on my end. If there is a duplicate posted, see if you can delete one now. I think there was an error in the coding. Staff and the submission's original contributor should both be able to delete or edit.

I'm sure you've even got a US address lined up, Sash, since you seem to make many trips over there. :P

Hehe, sure do - in fact I'm not interested in the Wii myself but on the off chance that I land it, I'll donate it to her. :)

@ HG: no luck deleting, I get:
"Sorry, but you are not permitted to view this page because you are not signed into the appropriate account. Please return once that has changed. Thank you!" Obviously, I AM signed into the appropriate account because at this point, if I'm not, the delete link doesn't show up in the first place.
