Database Moderators Needed ASAP

Recommended Posts

You will also have to do something in launchbox like update a game in order for it to pull the new metadata.xml down to your system.

That's not an issue :) I'm only though the A's in my library.   Basically adding games until I run into one that doesn't exist, add it to the DB, moderate some, and get back to adding.  I'm too particular to mass-import.

Quick question on moderation - I suspect I know the answer to this, but if someone has already made a rejection (with comment), can the following moderators take this information into account, or are they going in blind?  I made a rejection previously that got approved and was obviously incorrect.

Moderators go in blind, we don't see how many has accepted or rejected and we certainly don't see reasons why another moderator rejected a submission, neither does the submitter see why a moderator rejected a game unless the game is completely rejected.

Thanks for the confirmation.  As a new member, I see this as being a feature that could ease the moderation task, so created a suggestion here.  I've had other ideas (like grouping the 20+ edits to the same game's images and content, but looks like that's already there as an open issue.

To be honest I like how it currently works, it forces me to make a decision based purely on the information at hand.  It would be helpful though to go back though the moderated titles and see all the comments made after a title is accepted or rejected.

"Yay! The moderation queue is empty! Good jorb!"

What an amazing group effort!  I tip my hat to you all.

i got some time today. one issue i have the system is the wait time if i ignore something.

console games i usually feel 100% sure moderating . But at times a dos or other older computer Game  i  don't feel certain the changes or game being added is correct so i skip it. maybe it shouldn't be ignored for 24hours.
