We've added Acorn 32-bit, Commodore 16 - Plus/4, Nuon, SG-1000, ZX80, and ZX81
Gee-whiz! MobyGames is indeed in X-mas... I mean: Easter, Easter spirit! :D Thank you, Santa Claus!
Jokes aside, guys, remember about Multimedia Mike's list, which contains Resources tab, listing useful references for adding games from these systems:
I'm adding new stuff right away!
Add some more platforms Corn Popper, Please?
Add the SAM Coupé and Amstrad GX4000.
Guys, don't act like a spoiled child. You could at least thank first. I'm sure these missing platforms will be added in the near future.
How about contacting those collector/hobbyist websites informing them we're listing games for their beloved old 'puters?
You're right. Thanks for adding these obscure and, often overlooked, platforms. It's about time they got some love.

The main difference is that C16 has 16k memory while Plus4 has 64k. C16 however can be upgraded to 64.
Awesome. Personal thanks for SG 1000.
Hopefully PC 6001, Sharp X1 and Fujitsu FM7 will be next!
Add PC-6001, FM-7, Sharp X1, SAM Coupe, Amstrad GX4000, Sinclair QL, SuperGrafx and Thomson MO5
Great addition :) I was thinking, is it possible that a Soviet computer Elektronika BK could be added to the database at some point?
It also had a few unique games...
Коммунистические игры строго воспрещены :)
Коммунизьма у нас нету с '85 г., тебе ли не знать :)
+ the more obscure platforms like Specialist and Orion - they're even less documented than the Japanese platforms throughout the western web. Would be great if some of our Russian-speaking contributors could remedy that =)
Thanks for the new platforms! Though rudely demanding more isn't a great policy, it might be neat to set out a list of options on our horizon and perhaps we could vote month by month on which ones get let out of the gate first. (And then I could move my efforts into moving software platforms etc. that weren't yet on the horizon into that list 8)
About 90 releases on site (with many more pending) within the first 24h, not bad, eh?
Another thing about adding new platforms is that our dedicated yet small team of regular contributors/approvers can process only so much entries daily. Even simply adding ports (i.e. you only need release info) takes some time.
Especially for these smaller platforms where you often just have the copyright date to go after.
Can the Casio Loopy be next please?
...and thanks to these new platforms we're past the 65.000 milestone!
Hats off to anyone who had contributed to this success!
What about adding the Mattel aquarius and the rowtron television computer system too
But spam that reminds us to begin speculating about the MAY platform additions!
Spam be praised! Or something.
I suppose it needs to be by IP, since he adds a letter to his user name for each post.
That, or just have a minimum contribution rating for posting on the forums. But how much be enough without being to high, though.

One point. You just need to rate one game for it, no need for approval and practically instant access. I don't think a spambot is clever enough to comprehend that.
Or exclude that kind of contribution rating altogether to eliminate human spammers as well. Make all points count except those obtained by rating games.
Just had a spam count in the threads i know are spam heavy. There's 20 spam messages. In four days. From just one spammer. Something more has definitely got to be done.
