MobyGames News

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.

New platforms - 'dedicated console' & 'dedicated handheld'!
Thanks to Kabushi, we've now launched two new hardware platforms, 'dedicated console' & 'dedicated handheld'. The best example of this so far is the NES Classic Edition, contributed by Kam1Kaz3NL77.

As Kabushi notes: "Dedicated consoles is for machines that have games built-in and are connected to a TV or monitor, but does not support additional games in the form of cartridges, discs or downloads. This includes both old Pong machines as well as more modern Plug and play TV games."

"Dedicated handhelds is like the above but where the display is integrated into the device. It includes both traditional LCD games such as Game & Watch as well as the larger tabletops but also stuff like watches and key chains."

So please go ahead and contribute! And please ask questions in this thread if you have any issues.

'Entry helper' - the good, the bad, and what's next...


So it's been a couple of months since we rolled out our 'entry helper', which allows users to add games from Steam, iOS/Android, PSN and Nintendo.com much easier. And here's what happened so far:

The Good: as you can see from the above graph (red bar), we're adding a LOT more important games/DLC to the site - 3x as many as before! It's also had the great side effect of allowing retail cover contributors (like Charly 2.0) to add all kinds of covers that they couldn't because there was no game entry in place. And it's allowed regular contributors like Sciere to switch to high-quality data entry like credits.

The Bad: There have been some issues too - particularly with new contributors who aren't used to checking dev/publisher data and genres so closely. But we are working through those. Also, although many ad blurbs on Steam are high quality, a few - especially on PSN - are not so good and will really need descriptions adding at some point.

As for what's next? Well, thanks again to all for their help contributing to our DB! We still need more help with our PSN game adding competition until the end of May - keep contributing! And after that we may try to concentrate on key missing iOS & Steam games.

All of this gives us a much stronger data set for our longer term goals, which are to a) display everything in a much prettier/more useful fashion via a new version of the website and b) to continue building on the key elements of the website (credits, covers, and promo art, as well as the 'relational database' element of the site) for the far future.

Tip Of The Day

Even if you've received hundreds of them before, don't be quick to delete the confirmation/approval messages you receive automatically from MobyGames. You see, not all of them are form letters -- we personally respond inside those emails from time to time to comment on your progress, or maybe recount a little nostalgic anecdote. Why? Because we want you to know we really do appreciate your contributions, and we read every single one.   more tips
