  1. Moderator Guidelines and Contributor Rules

    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.
  2. Some interesting features there, good stuff. Voted.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. The Dragon's Trap

    Me personally, I love the original game and this new version has been on my radar for quite some time. Definitely a day one purchase for me when it's released for PC. Very cool, very cool.
  13. Resolved - Why no ROM hacks? - Issue #12

    We are waiting for category check box for rom hacks to be added to Games Database. More info here in section 3 of Submission & Moderator Guidelines which is linked in this pinned topic.
  14. Good find, I marked the "Aladdin" entry for deletion. In the future you can just mark duplicates for deletion, moderators will handle the rest.
  15. game gear is complete

    Yeah, apparently I shadowed you with the Game Gear from 0-9 to Z, haha. Mainly just tried to fill any missing fields and add artwork/screenshots where necessary. BTW, did you make all the clear logos or got them somewhere? Either way, nice job uploading them because now my Game Gear wheel looks considerably better.
