Our good friends at http://gamemag.ru still haven't deleted the data they stole from us. Compare;

http://gamemag.ru/?act=db

I sent an email to their CEO Alexander Loginov and here is his response;

Hey,
The parts of the base are deleted, but the "MobyGames TM Copyright © 1999-2003", doesn't mean anything in international law. We have a good consultation with our lawyer and he told us that you can't do anything against us. Also we could make the mirrors of your base and kill your site at one snap. We could make you run out of money by covering your base in better design and make it's more user friendly. BUT I'M IN GOOD MOOD TODAY. Even the devil could smile sometimes. So live on and sleep well. The code of your base is not there anymore. Bye, see you in afterlife. GOODBYE KISSES.

The good people at the Milwakee Journal Sentinel wrote a nice article on our attempts at getting a People's Voice award. Did you know you could vote for us here?

In our quest to find an ad network that doesn't suck we've dropped Adtegrity and ValueAd. Adtegrity kept serving pop up ads or even worse tried to install virusware like gator on our users machines. They kept giving us lip service that they would not serve those types of ads but never did cease their despicable business practices. In the case of ValueAd they just never paid us. To that end we've changed our privacy policy to reflect the change in ad networks. To those of you who run a website and are looking for an ad network do not use either of these companies. They are incompetent or worse just plain liars. In other advertising news we've turned off pop ups for non registered users. For a while we would serve pop ups to non registered MobyUsers. Brian, Jim and I felt the money wasn't worth the aggravation to the people who make MobyGames great ... you. If you love MobyGames and want to help defray some of the costs you can make a donation here. No matter the size of the donation you will get a bronze star ( ) next to your name. Lastly we signed up a new ad network. Hopefully Burst Media! will be better than those other crooks or we'll throw them on the heap of losers as well. Have a great weekend.

I've put out a minor update to MobyGames, and I wanted to share what's changed with the recent release. Here's a brief summary.

Changes to release information:


  • Comments can be entered for release information


  • Patches can only be entered for platforms which have patches released


Other changes:

Various bug fixes:
  • game rating page sometimes displayed incorrect number of votes


  • the first year a game was published was sometimes incorrectly displayed in various places (company sheet, developer sheet, etc)


  • clicking the finish button when submitting cover/package scans didn't take you to the finished page.


  • new credits show up in the recently modified game page.


  • various formatting fixes for the Opera and Safari browsers.


  • small other fixes


Oh yeah vote for MobyGames at the Webby Awards. :)

Corn Popper writes, "Anyone that used to submit any covers that were taken from other websites, you should put in a cover correction for each game cover you submitted or scan an actual cover and submit it as a replacement.

Also, those of you who have submitted covers from countries other than the US and did not note this in your cover submission, could you submit a correction if the country is not noted or is listed incorrectly. This just ensures that MobyGames has the most accurate information.

If you ever submitted covers for a game and did not submit the front cover because there was one already on file, well, that front cover might not be there now. Many of the front cover submissions have been removed. So go and check out the site... there are points to be had.

If you have recently received notification that you had a cover rejected and need further explanation as to why it was rejected or want to disbute the rejection then you can email [email protected]"
