import suggestion

First thing I am experienced in Importing it's not working the way I hoped. So I have a suggestion here. While many here most likely sit with great connections stable electric grid. I do not have that luxury. So when I import a large number of games and have to wait for them to import be scrubbed on-line or not at all I suggest following that would make life great I think.

Why not set up so that when I import, get a checkbox saying "Import all roms and scrub for images/videos in the background after import been finalized."

The function is self explanative, LaunchBox import all the Roms first and whenever it's running scrubbing for the media files then the time this takes is less important. I might have missed something while importing might already exist something similar, but I have not found it. 

Well that was my thought...

You can already do this. When you add roms to be scraped you can "uncheck" the media download boxes so that no images are downloaded but the roms are still imported. You can then run the "Update Metadata and Images" wizard after the fact.
