Milestones, other goodness for Oct/Nov, 2015.
Here's a few key points from things going on with MobyGames right now:

- In top MobyGames user news, our superhero Sciere has beaten the top # of points _ever_ added in one year, with 53,011. WOW. Infinithanks to him. Elsewhere, a couple of other neat milestones, as noted by Cavalary - Jo ST hit 20k points in total, and Trypticon hit 10k total points.

- Our social media efforts are still going strong, with a Tweet every day highlighting Moby's unprecedentedly large - and now unwatermarked - cover archive. And lots of RTs for our content, too!

- Unfortunately, we haven't made a lot of progress on MobyGames back end code changes recently. But we have a new volunteer coder who is trying to help out, so more on that soon if we get anywhere!

And that's the news for Oct/Nov, 2015 - we'll keep updating you, and thanks for the uploads.

Xbox Live Indie Games - the Moby-archiving!
Since news spread that the Xbox 360's Xbox Live Indie Games service is gradually closing - with no new games allowed from Sept. 2016 and the service closed in Sept. 2017. Due to the online nature of the store, there's obviously some danger that info on these games will be permanently lost.

Luckily, one of our top contributors, Patrick Bregger, has shot out of the gate like a rocket, and dedicated himself to archiving screenshots and info from _every single_ XBLIG game. Right now he's going backwards from Z, and has added a couple of hundred games to our previous total - there's now nearly 400 up there.

We salute his fortitude to get through all the Zombie games, for starters - there are nearly 100, including Zombie Sausages 2, Zombie Cow-Milking, and the actually pretty good Zombie Accountant.

We wanted to highlight this for two reasons - one, to thank Patrick PROFUSELY, because these synopses, screenshots, and credits are great, & just don't exist anywhere else. And secondly, he definitely needs some help - so if anyone would like to message him or post in this thread, that's be great!

MobyGames - text-only covers now accepted!
Along with the recent lifting of the exception on accepting multiple discs/diskettes with the same artwork and different disc numbers, our exception on accepting text-only covers has been lifted as well.

Below are a couple of sample covers which we had on file as accepted. This just shows the inconsistency when it comes to such things. (It was hard to say which is irrelevant as text-only, and which text is more important or if some minor graphics were included so it can be accepted.)

This was the last barrier to accepting the full cover set of actual covers. NOTE: we still do not accept manual scans, except the cover page - and this only in cases when manual serves as a front cover as well (most commonly found in jewel case packages).

MobyGames Call For Help - coders, contributors!
As we continue to add original credits, screenshots, info, and cross-linked info on the history of video games daily, MobyGames needs your help to expand! In particular, we need aid in two areas:

1. Coders who can understand Perl, can help! We're still stymied in accomplishing a lot of bug fixes and new features due to lack of coding help. If you know Perl and can volunteer some time to get up to speed on our codebase, we would be _very_ appreciative. Please message Simon if you can help out.

2. Contributors to underdocumented historic platforms! Check out this forums thread, but we think the Apple II, ZX Spectrum, Arcade, TRS-80, & TI-99/4A are all missing a LOT of releases. In addition, platforms like GBC, GBA, DS and Wii are missing a number of licensed & more 'minor' releases - of course, no games are minor in the end. So if you can help out and could specialize in any of these platforms - please contribute now - appreciated!
