I may add more as I come across them. Esteemed Contributors, please attempt to adhere to the following when attempting to change or add new information (screenshots/art are usually exempt): PROVIDE SOURCES!!!!!! Best to provide at least 2 sources, for more information on Primary and Secondary sources please visit https://libguides.merrimack.edu/research_help/Sources. ESRB rating should never be changed to the blank option, instead pick "Not Rated". For more information please visit https://www.esrb.org/ratings-guide/, https://www.tidewatergames.com/esrb-ratings-guide, and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Entertainment_Software_Rating_Board. If the game was made prior to September 16, 1994 there will be no ESRB rating, thus select "Not Rated". In addition, all ROM hacks and Homebrews haven't been rated by ESRB. The blank option is for when adding a game if you don't know the answer and don't have time to look it up. All ROM Hacks won't have a Publisher, they do have a Designer, sometimes multiple. Most Homebrews won't have a Publisher, rare exceptions. Humble Moderators, please attempt to adhere to the following when accepting or rejecting changes: Reject, if no sources are provided (unless you have the time to search for sources to verify each change that doesn't provide sources). Be responsible by clicking that link to verify that the link is associated with the entry/content it is attached to. Pay attention to details, especially requested changes of any images. If the requested ESRB Rating change is to the blank option, reject it. If the requested change has "No Reason Provided" be wary and the majority of the time refer to the first bullet point (exceptions are most screenshots/art). Suggested changes to https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com: Display username of the contributor next to the requested change in moderation queue. Display username of the contributor next to the current information in moderation queue. Show somewhere which moderators approved/rejected content changes (accountability). Don't allow users to see this: it shouldn't be a competition (even if you can only see your own numbers) Moderation should be done for the sake of DB integrity. Don't allow users to see this: it shouldn't be a competition (even if you can only see your own numbers) Contribution should be done for the sake of DB integrity. Note: I purposely made two changes that were completely and utterly incorrect to see if moderators were paying attention; to the 5 people who approved each of those changes, I have since gone back and requested a change to the correct information, approved again. Require sources. Add option for Moderators to pick which game systems will appear in moderation queue. This way we may have specialists. Simple tick/check boxes would work. Notes: At least from using ARC Browser in conjunction with https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com, on my GPD XD +, I have found that the "Wikipedia" link section doesn't do anything, except allow you to click on it for more information about the game. Which leads me to believe it doesn't have to be a Wikipedia link. Recently tested my theory with a non-Wikipedia link, works. It's exhausting to see correct information changed to completely incorrect information and having to go back to edit. Thank you for your time, Vloshko (Pokemon ROM Hack nerd) edit 1: punctuation edit 2: added a bullet point to "Suggested changes to https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com" section.
You will see I am a moderator of the database but I tend to moderate blindly because there are consoles to which we give everything could create some kind of specialization for the moderators to only moderate the metadata of the consoles that we manage well. thank you anyway
I looked over your post history and yeah a lot of your posts are just simple user error. I locked the thread because it devolved into nothing more than you ranting. No, file a bug report the proper way, complaining on the forums about them not being addressed as fast as you "demand" is just not accepted. Please, feel free to go elsewhere and use another front end and see how helpful their support is. ^^^^ completely proving my point. you lock threads, make threats, insult your customers, and dont give them a chance to defend themselves. oh and btw, we are PAYING CUSTOMERS, and this is how you treat us??? really? completely unprofessional. and you keep thinking that I am "demanding" a fix immediately. which im not. i just want it to be accepted as an actual bug. I think I am quite patient. when ive exhausted all possible solutions to the problem I let it go thinking "theyll fix it eventually". I dont harp on and on about it. I have not posted again in any of the previous threads I made since they are more or less finished IMO. it seems to me that you are just a dick with some authority on the internet, and tbh, i feel like you're going to be the cause of less customers paying for this software. but I digress. due to YOUR behaviour, I am requesting a Refund. I will not support this software/team any further. (and if a refund cannot be obtained, I'll simply do a charge back) @Jason Carr @lordmonkus @neil9000
