    8.3-beta-1 Released

    Using Beta 16. Something I've noticed with LaunchBox.Next is when using List View, and you sort games by release date for example. Every time you choose a game from the list and click "Edit" (or just Ctrl+E) and click OK, it resets the sorting to alphabetical order. Is this on purpose, or just something you weren't aware of? Edit: This doesn't happen when Images View is chosen.

    Moderator Guidelines and Contributor Rules

    Just came across these as well, didn't accept the deletions since no reason was given and neither of them are duplicates either. But like @Mr. RetroLust said, sometimes you go into auto mode where you just click accept before realizing that you might've made a mistake. I would like this as well.

    Seems to be working just fine now, thanks for the fix.

    This is what I've been doing as well. Although technically correct if you add Inc. etc at the end, I prefer to leave it out. I also use the company name they used during the release of the game and IMO this is the correct way to do it. I don't think this is possible at the moment, nor do I know if Jason wants to do something like this in the future.
  6. Some interesting features there, good stuff. Voted.

    Foreign exclusives

    IMO since we prefer Western releases over Japanese ones, it should go like this: NA > EU > Japan. So in this case you would add Gunner's Heaven as alternate name for Rapid Reload and delete the Japanese entry. If we used whichever title the game has originally, we'd have a lot more Japanese titles as the main one.

    Foreign exclusives

    I'd personally go with NA or US but you can just leave the region empty if you don't feel comfortable with that. I've seen unofficially translated English titles use mostly those two or in some cases World.

    Foreign exclusives

    Japanese one should be used for those platforms that received a release only in Japan. Same as above, if a game was released only in one country/region, use that name. In this particular case, Rockman & Forte since the game was only released in Japan. You can add translated names as alternative, so in this example you would use Majuu Ou as the main title and King of Demons as an alternate title. This guideline hasn't been updated for a while, but you'll get a better idea how we go about with naming conventions etc.

    Database Small Things

    This definitely needs work, but first and foremost we'd have to decide what naming standard to use, for example should Apogee Software be just that or should we follow, let's say MobyGames naming standard and use Apogee Software, Ltd. Then again, the only way to get rid of these would be to not allow users to create their own dev/pub names like one of the four above, but choose from confirmed list of names that have been verified and locked for modification. So you would type "Apogee" to find the publisher, and you could only choose the one verified and confirmed name for the company instead of creating a new one by typing Apogee Soft etc.

    I am leaving LaunchBox effective... well right now

    It really is a shame to lose such a devoted and helpful staff member. All the best in your future endeavors and take care, I hope you'll still be around here from time to time.

    ZX Spectrum Me Up Baby!

    Would any of you mind replacing Spanish overview text with English, while you're going through the entries? I don't see any reason not to.

    A language question

    English is the preferred language, so yes you can. For example, I've done it to a couple of games that had overviews in German or Spanish.
  14. Indeed, what a difference in speed! Before this I usually had plenty of time to do other stuff after accepting/rejecting a submission and waiting for a new one, but now everything moves at lighting speed. So awesome.

    Any way to remove a Change you submitted?

    I hope I wasn't the only one who rejected that one. Maybe some of the mods are on autopilot mode and just hit accept at everything. Would be nice indeed to be able to revert changes you've made that have wrong images/label/info.
