By the way, why isn't anyone complaining about the Mario Bros. scoreboard? All it says is "The dip switch bank has to be on medium difficulty setting"
Try not to take it personally, man. You should be thrilled that there is this much attention on a comprehensive DK3 leaderboard. It's not your fault the settings situation is screwed up, but it has to be dealt with or the confusion will be perpetuated. Or not. Odds are it will have to be explained every single time this game comes up...forever.
Anyway, here's an Excel 2013 file modeled after the main Donkey Kong High Score List. The formatting is all Scott's work, with George's data added. I have added source and streamer links where possible. Some names had to be fixed for spelling, "EMPTY BOY" was changed to a MARP score instead of Aurcade, and Ethan's BOTA score was added. The scores that are below the cut-offs are still included so you can remove them as needed. Also note that it has been brought up that all the Aurcade scores for Difficulty 1 that occurred on 06/23/2012 were actually done on Difficulty 3.
Take some time to look it over so you can see how the different elements are handled. Scott's table automatically generates the Ranking data and the required forum code that will mimic the DK HSL. All you need to do is insert or remove rows as needed then copy & paste Column Z into a forum post.
