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!
