Hi Everyone,

We've deployed another round of updates to the LaunchBox Games Database.

The complete changelog:

  • Enhanced the upload process with PNG and transparency checks for specific image types.
  • A user-friendly interface for advanced search options located next to the search bar has been added.
  • The Changes Status and Moderation pages have been optimized for better readability.
  • Refreshed the look of game lists by providing background images with the box art displayed on top.

Some nice changes and additions, thank you!

Only small quirk seems to be that when moderating an overview update, the text is in a narrow area which in turn forces you to scroll a fair amount, especially if either of the overviews are somewhat lengthy. But this shouldn't happen too often, so it's a minor inconvenience.

The point of an overview is that is should be short and not have too many details (it's not a full product description, or otherwise we would have a separate features field or something).
So personally I would reject a change like that and we have wikipedia links to anyone wanting to know more about the game...

"a short description of something that provides general information about it, but no details"

EDIT: Maybe limiting the amount of text the overview can have with a hard code? Just a suggestion

Thanks guys, I do feel even for shorter overviews, we could do a better job of displaying that information to make it more readable when trying to moderate overviews. We'll see what we can come up with.
