Chandrian Well that escalated quickly. So just for clarification sakes, is it against the rules to post a new entry with an updated time/car instead of updating the currently existing one? I only ask because every week I see some with multiple "updates" as new posts, sometimes even up to 5 and I once saw a statement by yours truly stating to "ensure your fastest time is in your last entry because that is the one that will count when collecting results". So which is it really.
On another note, was it really necessary to reply in that manner. It's not like I posted my entry late or after you made your tables and asked to be included. Nor did I come at you in an aggressive manner like "how could you miss my entry post/did you not see my entry post". I simply notified you in a very polite manner and even apologized for my late notification. That's pretty much all, i'm just glad I took my time to respond and didn't reply in haste after reading that message.
ELRIO77 People are not enforced to post only once, but when they do it can lead to mistakes such as the one that just happened. Mistakes that can have really harsh consequences towards results collecting, which is done by Jussi, especially when probably just 5 out of 30 guys here check the results right away. There's no rule for "only one post per racer, that can be edited". I personally think there should be one, but Jussi's opinion is that we can't force people to post only once. In my opinion everyone should at least scratch their time on their old entry (I think Racerbe5t or Radeg10 are the only ones who do that). It makes my work harder because each time I have to put the entire sheet into a .txt file, open it with Chrome and CTRL+F manually for coincidences, that is, write ~30 racers nicks just to see if someone's nick does not repeat. Most of the times they don't, but when I do so I also gotta be 100% sure that the time I collected is their best time just because there are people who like to post their entries twice, three times or even more.

Chandrian Yep I understand and I also lean more to the having one entry and editing it as you go along or improve. In most cases I can only do runs at the back end of the week with sometimes limited runs so the multiple entries have never really been a issue with me since I barely have any to choose from. Plus the only reason I got that new time was because I felt sorry for having that car rust in my garage with minimal use and was surprised that it was able to run better times.
With regards to the scratching off, is that where you use the forum shortcut and it draws a line over the words? I'm not to familiar with it because I tried it on the NFSW forums and it doesn't work there. If that's what you are speaking about I would definitely try that out if the need arises. The only positive I see from many entries is seeing the progress/improvement of the times among us over the course of the week as I sometimes like to have a look at how the others improved with practice.
In relation to my faster time not being included, it wasn't really an issue for me because not like I am that fast anyways. Just thought maybe when whoever was doing the final check after the entire series they wouldn't be like "crap, didn't see this, now I got to fix it " and pretty much brought it up only to help.
CmdrTomalak (PC/PS3/PS4): Yep. Dead. Dead. Dead... Somebody should put it out of its misery. It all started waaaaaay back when Most Wanted came out and we all met on the EA forums and decided to branch out on our own. Sad way to go...

Tonnzzaah (PC/360/PS4): And unfortunately, the way Need For Speed games were for quite long time didn't help this place at all, for starters, I dropped off from NFS games completely. I did get both Shifts, Hot Pursuit (2010) and later Rivals, but they weren't enough...

Chandrian: I don't know how many of you know, but for a while, NFS World has worked very well on a public online server (probably a month or more since it became more stable), containing over 150k registered players.

Chandrian: The sync is now allowing races with more than 2 players, and pretty much all original NFSW features are working. The best part is that everything is available for in-game cash on this server.

Chandrian: You have to start with a new driver profile, but the progression isn't that hard. If you wanna play NFSW online again, then I advise downloading the launcher of this online server and also joining this Discord server:
