MobyGames News

Excellent list of missing MobyGames arcade titles!
As many of you probably know, 'arcade' was only added as a platform to MobyGames relatively recently (in 2014!) compared to most other platforms. As a result, although we've added 1900 games, the majority are titles we already had in the database as arcade conversions.

Luckily, contributor JMM has created a giant MobyGames/MAME comparison spreadsheet and found the 2,700 games (!) we are missing on arcade.

If you're adding them, feel free to make your description brief (2 or 3 paragraphs) but descriptive, and it would be great to get MAME screenshots for many of them - but maybe you can all split up & some people can add, with others adding screenshots? (There may be a more formal goal on this when the PlayStation goal is done at the end of May!)

REMINDER: Our PlayStation game adding contest ends May 31st


As you may recall, we're running a contest for adding missing PlayStation games which'll run through the end of May. The person who adds the most PlayStation games - with a bonus for adding other formats - will win a $100 Amazon gift card.

Looks like all of the PS4 games in the original spreadsheet were completed, but there's still likely a bunch of PlayStation Vita (and some PS3/PS2) titles that you could use the 'entry helper' on - or do new entries from scratch - if you want to keep playing along! (And there's a few PS4 games not on the list too.) Good luck...

Congrats - jaXen (50k points!), Rainer S. (top covers contrib!)
Just a quick note, since somebody in the MobyGames Discord pointed out that jaXen has just reached 50,000 MobyPoints, a super-impressive total, given that he's been with us since 2004 & has accelerated his contributions recently. (This also puts him into the Top 30 all-time contributors.) Congrats to him!

In semi-related news, it seems that Rainer S. recently became the top all-time game cover art contributor, with 51,624 total points from covers alone. We've been having some very strong cover-adding contributors in recent months - with Charly 2.0 also looking like he will get to 50,000 points JUST from covers at some point if he keeps up his current pace. Thanks to both of them!

Looking for a 'corrections czar' for MobyGames...
So, we get about 100-200 corrections submitted per month via the MobyGames website, and that's quite a lot to keep up on! We've chipped away at the corrections of recent. But each one requires a bit of research and sometimes simple, sometimes more complex changes to our data.

There's 'only' about 600 pending corrections across every single category right now, and the majority date back to early March, thanks to sterling work by S Olafsson and others. But we're looking for someone to help manage our corrections queues longer-term as a volunteer. (You can also recruit other people to help!)

Is anyone out there interested in helping valuable corrections get onto MobyGames & leading our efforts in the longer-term? If we can get caught up, it should just be a few minutes per week. If so, please reply in this thread or PM Simon now. Thanks!

New - MobyGames Discord chat server for contributors.
Hey, everyone. Have you ever wanted to text chat in REAL TIME (or not real time, depending on your time zone!) with other MobyGames admins, approvers, and contributors?

If so, there's a new MobyGames Discord private chat server instance for you. Discord is an easy to use, IRC-style (if you go way back!) web-based or executable-based chat client, and we thought it would be worth setting it up to collaborate. We expect chat volume to be low, but welcome anyone and everyone.
