This should be a given but I'll just say it anyways. Be smart when submitting scores, don't go submitting high scores with low times.
i've been seeing this answer everywhere and i just want to clarify some things in regards to that statement.
by time, do you mean from the time i open the game until i click send score or the time that it takes me to finish that single round of playing? example: i open up extreme herder, and play only ONCE, and get a high score within 10 minutes. the game ends, and shows me my score, giving me an option to send score or restart. then i wait on that screen for 30 minutes before sending score. TNT will see that i've spent 40 minutes playing or 10 minutes?
Edit: i have a couple of other questions as well
1) i keep reading that a safe time to wait before sending score is like 20 minutes or half an hour. but is it safe to just wait 20-30 minutes and get a high score in the golden trophie range even if it's the first time playing that game? in other words, won't TNT say "hey this guy has never played this game before, and the first time he plays the game, he only plays half an hour and gets one of the top scores"? if it were me, i would think it's suspicious, but i'm just not sure if they look solely at score and time of sending the score. it'd make it a lot easier if i could just play a game for the first time, send score only once (waiting the appropriate amount of time of course), and not raise suspicion
2) does TNT look at the time u play BETWEEN games?
example: i play faerie bubbles and get a high score but don't send score yet. then i open another tab and play faerie cloud racers and get a high score but don't send score yet. i go AFK for 3 hours and come back. can i send score on both of them without raising suspicion? since i waited 3 hours, would it just tell TNT that i spend 3 hours on one game and 3 hours on another game, therefore it's legit? or will they also check the time between sending high scores seeing that i sent the scores 10 seconds apart despite waiting 3 hours, thus making it look like i cheated? again, this question is essentially asking what TNT looks at when sending scores besides "score, time, and speed hacks"
if it matters, then what's a good time to wait in between sending high scores for games?
