OK - I did make a policy of "a game made is a game played"... in other words, if the game made it marathonable, then you play it out. 5 life competitions, timed competitions, etc. should be in the side competitions.

However... I might as well ask the general audience... what do you think? Do you think marathons should be in the main leaderboard competition, or should they be reserved for "side competitions" and we should change the rules around?

Remember the Activision games, or any game that has a maximum score... we probably should be leinient if the maximum score can be achieved in an hour or two. (see my Chopper Command INP)

I'm not super partial but even timed marathon games are lame (unless there is a completion somewhere that ends the time). The activisions should be stage limited and then timed. Even marathoned games can have a 3/5 life score, so editing is sort of a breeze. But there really isn't a big audience here so my voice is probably louder than it should be. Side competitions are good but they should be used when there a different form of play, not a difference in scoring the same kind of game.
