    My thoughts exactly, thank you!

    Ok, I hope I can express this question correctly. I see people deleting Fan Art Backgrounds because they have text of any kind in them. To my knowledge the only kind of text we are on the lookout for are watermarks, website logos, uploader images or website icons for other websites. Am I incorrect?

    Games Database Hard Drive Failure

    As an IT professional that is too often on the other side of this I want to thank you for your hard work getting thing back up and running. My experience tells me that too often gets left unsaid. Thanks for the stress you bear and the work you do.

    Ok, more clarifications. I see some people submitting replacements of a game screenshot at 320x240 resolution and submitting in its place a 320 x 200 resolution screenshot of the same exact screenshot scene as a correction, sometimes with the explanation that they are submitting with the "correct screen resolution". The only resolution requirements I'm aware of are the ones for Background based art and it seems that bigger is mostly considered better. Is there something I'm missing or is this like the people that think that game names are the same as watermarks and trying to remove all text from fan art? Also, MERRY CHRISTMAS to all!

    Website Feature Requests

    I think that it would be wise to have a list of forbidden characters near the Invitation to Add A New Game. I would also love to see the ability to withdraw changes you've made in error in the Changes Status section. Lastly, I would love it if there was a way to search within a single platform without using the Add A New Game workaround. Thank you to all who work so hard to make this database and application go.

    Ok, a question for those of you who have been in the trenches a while. I see some people trying to add things like spreadsheets and PDA programs in the database. My gut reaction is that these are not games and shouldn't be in the games database but maybe I'm off-base on that. Some guidance would be appreciated.

    I'd also like to add my request to have a copy of the rules and guidelines. I have a current question about which characters can cause problems in game names. Is the tilde ~ one of those problematic characters?

    Search broken on Launchbox Games Database?

    The database is very large and it also appears to try to check alternate names for those games so 10 seconds on a high-volume day, especially if a lot of people are making additions to the DB is to be expected. Perhaps, in the future, they'll change it so you can just search one part of the database, such as one system to speed things up.

    Essential Database Features REQUEST

    I agree with your take on Fan Art. From a C64 perspective Fan Art needs to stay. So many C64 titles were and still are put out without actual boxes that Fan Art is a necessity.

    Essential Database Features REQUEST

    Re: #2 Protect "complete" Platforms from duplicate/invalid games. I think this needs to be implemented very carefully, I come from a heavy C64 background where there are many instances of multiple games having the exact same name. Not that this isn't already something of a problem, but a solution would need to be put in play to allow for this.
