We are all Internet contributors, although you probably meant to say "new" ;))

Any chance of hoping for Phoenix site in 2019?

Thank you for your work!

But I don’t understand the graphs completely. As for the ST games, there were only 2500 games released over all years – concidering your database. In your graph, the numbers clearly exceed this limit per year. If I read your graph right, the ST has got over 2000 games per year – for many years. Truly unrealistic!

I assume you are speaking of this graph:

I think you are trying to read it wrong. you should consider the thickness of the Atari ST shape. E.g. looking at 1987 the green wedge representing the Atari ST goes from about 2600 to 2800, meaning we have about 200 new game releases for the Atari ST documented from that year. The top of the whole graph in 1987 is just over 3000 meaning ALL releases for ALL platforms added together add up to just over 3000.

I believe you are trying to read this as a line graph, while it is an area graph.

I hope that clears it up for you.
