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.
Hello LaunchBox Community, What are your thoughts on having other video game rating systems to be included in Games DB and LaunchBox? I think not only ESRB should be included but others too since there are different regions of video games with its region of ratings. I think it will be great if these were added (alphabetical order): 3DO Rating aDeSe Rating Apple Rating BBFC Rating CCE (IGAC) Rating CERO Rating ClassInd COIAO Rating DJCTQ Rating ELSPA Rating EOCS ESRB Rating FPB Rating GRB GSSR IFCO Rating Kijkwijzer Rating KMRB Rating OFLC (Australia) Rating OFLC (New Zealand) Rating PEGI Rating RSAC Rating SEGA Rating SELL Rating TIGRS Rating USK Rating VET/SFB Rating VRC Rating I think it will be a lot of work, but as a whole, we can accomplish it.
