Milestones: congrats, GTramp & mars_rulez!
As we cruise through the summer months, wanted to highlight a couple of notable MobyGames contributors who just reached new milestones in terms of MobyPoints:

- GTramp, who has added all kinds of things but has been particularly strong on screenshots (13,000 so far!) has made it over 60,000 MobyPoints.

- mars_rulez, who is invaluable for adding brand new releases for PC and digital console, just made it over 40,000 points. So many thanks to him, too!

Tech specs on MobyGames - overview available!
Do we have necessary requirements for user to enter tech specs for a specific game? Well, one obvious way is to go add the game or tech specs, and see if it's available.

Now, the easier way is simply to visit this updated 'Tech Specs' page and see if anything is missing and how data is grouped. That page lists all tech specs that currently exist on MobyGames, regardless of the platforms to which each spec is attached.

Feel free to comment on potential issues in the forum thread attached to this post!

New platforms: Galaksija and Amazon Alexa
In the past few days a couple more platforms have been added, so a brief introduction is in order...



Galaksija (left) was a do-it-yourself (DIY) computer made in ex-Yugoslavia in 1983. It used monochromatic monitor and text-mode graphics (two year later Galaksija Plus introduced hi-res mode with polygon graphics). How to assemble the computer was done in a magazine so everyone's computer looked a bit different. You wanted a joystick to play games? Take a soldering iron and build yourself one. That was the principle for upgrades. Here's a brief showcase of how the games looked on original Galaxy computer.

Amazon Alexa (right) has great many skills. Many of those skills are categorized as games and it was only a matter of time until it found itself on MobyGames. While many skills are entertaining, not all are actual games. Skill groups help determine that a bit, but best way is always to try it out, seeing how they're all free. What does Alexa game "look" like? Well, a word speaks 1000 of pictures ;))

LOTS of new (old) platforms added to MobyGames!
Largely because Vedder is adding a mountain of old games in his attempt to document early titles better (look at 1976's much-augmented list, for example) Kabushi has added all of the below game platforms recently: PCs: Altair 8800, HP 9800, Intel 8008, Intel 8080, KIM-1, Microtan 65, SWTPC 6800, Tektronix 4050, Zilog Z80; Consoles: Bubble, Interton Video 2000, Tele-Spiel ES-2201, Telstar Arcade. And Vedder has added more since then which he can mention in the comments to this news story if he wants, haha.

Oh, and we added the Pokitto too! Go us!

New MobyGoal (& apologies for downtime!)
Thanks to everyone for bearing with us through some site downtime a couple of days ago. Our (slightly old site) had its 'task manager' malfunction, so it required some complex surgery from Reed & special guest helper Brian H! Seems to be working now, but feel free to post or PM if you see anything amiss.

Secondly, we took advantage of the editing to add a new stretch MobyGoal - 7,000 iPhone games. Yep, we know they're not such a popular area to add for contributors, but there are a lot of smartphone games played by millions and not yet documented, so we thought we'd ask nicely!

Tip Of The Day

You can contribute technical details and platform-specific information to existing entries by entering the Add Game Wizard. Just enter the title of the game already in the database (make sure it's exact!) and you'll be whisked to a special screen where you can contribute platform and technical attributes. Again, make sure the title is exactly the same as the title in the database, otherwise you'll be adding a duplicate entry that we'll have to reject in the interest of keeping the database clean and consistent.   more tips
