It's great to see stable and frequent flow of updates coming, thanks!
I was hoping that this update would have somehow fixed the weird problem I have with my collection lists. Some of them are completely broken, resulting in "I Am Error" page. The weird part is that the error page appears only if I'm logged in. For example: https://www.mobygames.com/user/24059/karttu/collection/5396/amigacd32-games/ should display ok for everyone, but for me it's the glitchy error page.
In some cases collection lists are accessible, but a single page results in error. This happens whether I'm logged in or not: https://www.mobygames.com/user/24059/karttu/collection/34636/downloaded/sort:platform/page:4/
Has anyone else experienced this problem or am I a lone outlier?

edit1: I see the the second link correctly, no error - how many entries per page do you see? (I have 100)
edit2: I was able to see the first link - but now it says 'Game list not found - Mobygames' in the tab for the first one?
edit3: re: the zero price bug - I also have zero price items in my lists, but I have not seen anything similar in those - maybe connected to some specific currency? There should not be any calculations done with zero value items regardless?

I think I found the bug!
@MobyReed : I exported the collection, deleted, and re-imported it. Same error. Then I went and removed random entries from the CSV and tried importing, still the same error. Once I had removed all entries that had 0 in purchase_price, the imported collection was able to display again. Edited one entry and put 0 as purchase price, and bang!, the "I Am Error" returned.
Apparently something in the backend crashes if the purchase price is zero.

Did some more testing. The bug appears not only for zero purchase price, but in fact any value, if the currency is not defined.
Looks like the bug is in the list rendering code and the regression happened when the support for displaying the actual currency instead of US Dollar was added.

There's a post in the "Find a Game" forum that has a very long title, so it's causing the main forum list page to show up incorrectly.

"Added support for platform images (managed by admins)"
Does that mean a photo of the hardware itself?
I keep thinking that the top of these pages are too plain: https://www.mobygames.com/platform/windows/ There needs to be some sort of picture of the hardware and maybe a brief description of the hardware itself.

Yep, here's an example of both: https://www.mobygames.com/platform/genesis/
We need to go through and populate the rest yet.

Any chance we can have Moby act as a PWA so we can add to home screen? Meta tag and manifest are required i believe.

Yay, I am very much happy with the new update.In my search, I came across the website https://plagiarism.studyclerk.com/, where I will verify my essay assignments before sending them to my mentor. My friend needs to submit an essay assignment soon, but they don't have much time to finish it. After that, when I have finished my assignment, I'll read it.
