- Before making updates to a leaderboard, you must backup each modified conditional line on the comment (if too long use Pastebin link)
- After editing a leaderboard, if you are fixing, adding, or removing entries, you must leave a comment about changes you have made and why.
A leaderboard's concept/design should not be changed once players have begun submitting entries. Exceptions are as follows:
A. If a leaderboard has a bug in which a correction would result in a discrepancy between between pre and post fix LB submissions, this would be considered a fundamental change and it may be most appropriate to "retire" the leaderboard and create a new corrected LB.
B. If a protection needs to be added to the cancel field in a leaderboard, for example to eliminate point farming/leaching (Areas where a game generates an endless number of things, such as items, money, or enemies), it may be preferable to either “retire” or create an additional leaderboard. "Retiring" a leaderboard means preventing future submissions.
If a developer wishes to create a new concept for a leaderboard, a new one should be added.
If a developer wants to implement a fundamental change to a leaderboard while keeping it intact, a revision vote is required. “Fundamental changes” involve the following:
A. Changes to how players submit scores.
B. Changes to submission requirements that impact difficulty and or strategy.
A Jr. Developer may only change, add, or remove a leaderboard with a code-reviewer that goes through the revision process with them.
