Q: What's thps.run?
thps.run is a website developed by ThePackle to serve as the main website for the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater (THPS) Speedrun Community. The function of this website is a lot like the one you can find at the Halo Runs Speedrun Community - at least, from the points system side of things (more on that in a later question).
Q: What are Points
Points (also lovingly referred to as Packle Points) is a sort-of numerical score given to all speedruns. Originally developed by goatrope and ibeechu at Halo Runs, this system incentivizes players to venture out from their normal speedgames and get better in multiple games to add to their global "score". Here is a breakdown of the points.
When a new World Record is attained, the website will automatically redistribute the points to all subsequent runs.
Q: How are speedruns added to this website? Can I add them or submit them?
Speedruns are added to this site through a custom-made API. Whenever a speedrun is approved on Speedrun.com, the information for that run (including time, category, player(s), platform, and other metadata) is sent to the aforementioned API. After it is processed, the run is added to this website's database and can be displayed on here. Luckily, the time to wait after a run is approved is near instant!
For now, all speedruns must be approved through Speedrun.com. But, this may change in the future!
Q: Can I access the API?
