Wanted to add a DLC through steam. The scraper (in the old situation) would accept the whole link, like this: https://store.steampowered.com/app/2214820/Atomic_Heart__Midas_Glove_Skin/ , but the new one only accepts https://store.steampowered.com/app/2214820/

And this particular DLC is for a skin (aka customization), but i cannot proceed because the following message appears: "At least one perspective must be selected." -> LOL, that ain't right -> in the end it is not submittable :(

Will add 1st-person for now, but those little kinks can confuse inexperienced ones

  • DATE adding for release is still buggy, suddenly jumping back to year

  • PS Point system isn't correct i think: a release with date/country + publisher/developer and game-engine -> normally 3 or 4 points right? -> only 1 point now

  • The game Atomic Heart https://www.mobygames.com/game/121102/atomic-heart/ -> a whopping 2 points? (according to the email) -> ACTUALLY point are tallied correctly on the site, but every email says 1 point

  • adding new platform (switch) to Windows here: https://www.mobygames.com/game/169160/seven-doors/ but NOW the requirement for a source is optional.....

  • you can approve information (covers/release/etc) of a game that is rejected or wip-ed or escalated in the normal game queue (not the escalated queue) -> not how that is supposed to work. AND you can approve covers/release information before a platform is even approved -> that should not work that way (other way around?)

  • EXAMPLE: https://www.mobygames.com/approval/edit-game/150245/ -> i can already approve the covers, bu the game is still WIP, not pending -> what if a contributor makes changes?

  • Cannot approve ratings/tech-info, there's no option in the approvers section

  • Submitted covers don't show their dimensions

  • The whole "Displaying previously skipped items." is a nice feature, but if you want to back to approving other things, you have to go back out and re-enter the "approvals section" -> bit tedious

Huh, didn't even realize it, but previously screenshot descriptions (probably other things too) supported line breaks (wonder about other tags too), which now just show up. Compare http://web.archive.org/web/20180717020017/http://www.mobygames.com/game/dos/operation-wolf/screenshots/gameShotId,820379/ to https://www.mobygames.com/game/3475/operation-wolf/screenshots/dos/820379/

Also previously links could be put under About me, now they're stripped. (Noticed it in Tracy's profile, actually.)

Also the useful / not useful rating for reviews seems gone.
