    I think its important to separate whats being good at playing this game vs being "good" at spacebarring. Since you're playing with a huge advantage.
    Lets not pretend like someone is good at playing free rider when they spacebar. Because that is hilariously stupid.
    Like okto says, and some other spacebarrers ironically say: spacebarring is cheating if you wish to be perceived as good at riding tracks, which you are factually not. Spacebarring should be prevented.

    Its just if i would claim to be good at drawing, even if i traced everything i drew.

    I can be good at tracing, but that wouldnt neccessarily make me good at drawing

    Its just bcause I'm bad no matter what I do so I'll seem a little less bad with the space bar even though it makes me worse

    In my opinion, one of the best parts of the game. Just made this little ghost (nothing much, kinda craappy) to prove my point: http://frhd.co/t/475747-daily-mini-6/r/whisk

    Im just going to create new version where everyone can cheat. Press a key and engage slow-mo, rewind and create checkpoint.

    Please include the mobile platform in this amazing update ;)
    Guys like Phase are good on mobile, but would be way better with all the computer stuff like checkpoint deletion and such.

    I don't spacebar because it's harder than normal playing (probably my keyboard's fault).
    In the following scenarios I CAN'T SPACEBAR.
    I can't spacebar at all when I hold both left and up arrows, same goes for unpausing.
    I can't spacebar at all when I hold both left and down arrows, same goes for unpausing.
    I can't spacebar at all when I hold both right and down arrows, same goes for unpausing.

    Same, that's because our keyboard/laptop can only detect 2 simultaneous keypresses (except for some keys).
    In speedrunning, spacebarring and playing normally would be 2 different categories:
    • Real time (any%), where pausing only stops the player in space (this could still be useful when completing hard tracks). It's the time it takes you to complete the track as measured by an external clock, like the time that passes in real life.
    • In-game time, Time Attack category (TA). Pausing stops the clock, and maybe checkpoints reset the time as well. They're not usually acknowledged as legitimate in the speedrunning community (but can still be fun).
    As TA is only available to some, I think the any% format should be the default time in the game.
