Re-Con, I believe, is one of those DJs that used to speed up songs and remix them as well for his HTID/X-treme Hardcore compilation. I may be wrong, but I believe his remixes include raising the pitch and BPM, then remixing. I might be confusing him with another DJ, but that was definitely not unheard of in the 2000s.
I feel the need to leave my world, to discover some other place.

Soon to retire nightcore video maker o/

Of course, everyone has to do at least some degree of pitch increase or decrease to fit the original track to the BPM of whatever genre the remix is going to be in. Sometimes it's just by a little, sometimes it's by a lot, such as when taking vocals from a trance track and matching them to a hardcore tempo. However, this was never referred to as Nightcore, it's just standard remix practice.

If one does remix a song and speed it up, as long as the style is suitable for nightcore, it would be nightcore.
like DCX - Flying High (Dj Splash speed remix)

I'd argue that the only reason the Speed Remix can be considered Nightcore is because it has a slower version that is considered the true original.

I am a tad confused. What is the difference between Nightcore and "Speed Edits"? I've seen comments on YT saying "This is not Nightcore, it's a Speed Edit".

All Nightcore are speed edits, but not all speed edits are Nightcore :)

Okay simply we could say:
Every Nightcore Edit is a Speed Edit, but not every Speed Edit is a Nightcore Edit.
A Nightcore Edit has to be made of some special genres and it should sound similar to the original Nightcores.
These Music Genres are Hands Up, Vocal Trance, (UK Hardcore and some Trance House Tracks).

Those aren't the only genres though, a more complete list can be found here on the forum, somewhere... too lazy to look for it.

This is the important part though: "it should sound similar to the original Nightcores"
So if a new genre happens to pop up that sounds like the originals, then it's totally fine to do as well.

What do you guys think of "Nightstep" out of interest?

I'm not sure if I can post something that is not Nightcore here ;P but it is basically Trap songs pitched up and sped up

Sounds interesting! I'm always keen to try new genres. I heard a Nightcored remix of the song "Hip to be Square". Made my day :)
