Someone care to discuss this?

I get a "no" vote stating "Submitter did not follow High Score's rules."

Excuse you?  Here are the rules:

Rules: Game must be played on a Nintendo Wii compatible console. Play with default settings unless otherwise specified. 1 credit. No saves. No continues. 1 player mode only. No hacked files or cheat codes.

I played it on a physical Wii (the family's).  I played with default settings.  One credit only, no saves or continues (since the game doesn't have any of that), one player mode only, nothing hacked or cheated. 

My name is on the photo too, in case they were going to try to bring that up.

Actually I think I know what the deal is: in the photo, it reads "pro".  In case the no voter thought "the rules state to play on the DEFAULT setting, NOT 'advanced' or 'pro' settings", then they're still WRONG.

Even though your rank increases with the better you get, the game itself does not change.  (It does for the boxing and baseball games though.) This is also STILL the default setting because there is no way -- to the best of my knowledge -- to reset the game back to the very beginning and you can start over.  I can look through the instructions again but I'm pretty sure you can't do this, as that's one of the few things I don't like about Wii Sports: when things start getting harder and harder you're stuck there; you can't go back to the beginning/the easier settings.

If that's not it, then I don't know what it is.

I mean, seriously?  One person is right and THREE people who posted scores did them incorrectly?  Sorry that I don't have the money for a time machine to take me back to when the family first got the Wii and I made myself not play it, knowing that would be along several years later and then I'd be accused of cheating. (sarcasm)

Yeah this is pretty straight forward, frustrating, ain't it?

Hi Congslop (interesting name!), nice meeting you.

Looks like it'll be the same thing when I enter a score for the Hitting Home Runs (or whatever it's called) entry on here: two out of the three people currently holding records have at least one no vote there too, again, I assume because it says "pro" as their status.  No way to reset that to the best of my knowledge, and the Hitting Home Runs game doesn't get any harder than when you first start playing it (I think), even if you're at a pro level.

Ha, oh well!  Nice Bean avatar though.

Yeah, I don't think there is a way, unless it was just left out, like with the extra speed boost on the Sega 32X Shadow Squadron game.  I don't think there is a way to get past the final level without using it, yet they left it out of the instructions.  I didn't know about it, nor how to beat that last level until years later when this internet thingy started getting all over the place.
