  1. Apparently there was previously features for adding a custom profile pic and banner which were disabled. If that's the case it would be great to bring those back, I can't see them doing any harm. More personalisation is appreciated on sites such as these. It would also be nice to display some kind of bio in the "Overview" section (there's even space in the middle perfect for it) as well as a possible list of consoles/platforms owned.

    Hey!

    I can confirm this is definitely in the works. When we switched to Twitch logins after the acquisition we had to terminate our own user upload feature for safety and privacy reasons. The current plan is to add the ability to sync your IGDB profile Avatar & Banners with your Twitch profile, so it would be one seamless account across both.

    Adding extra to the profile itself is something we very much would like to do, some work has even already put into this. Unfortunately however this isn’t currently on our roadmap and priority list for the short term. But soon!

    Thanks!

  2. Hi,
    when I check my own channel on Twitch, I like to see the colouredful section name something like "Recently broadcast categories" (in Italian "Categorie trasmesse di recente), with all Game Covers from recently streamed games/categories.

    Anyway, seeing I bring lot of indie (expecially less less known ones) I often find they have no Game Cover at all related to their category. And they show and ugly grey empty cover box.

    But most of them actually can show a Game Cover on IGDB... or if they don't, well I often upload a cover by myself, if I can.

    The fact…

    Hey!
    Thanks for reaching out. This has been an ongoing request, and an obvious fit for IGDB and Twitch.

    A separate team within Twitch has this planned. We (IGDB) do have covers as a high data priority and are indeed ready to power Twitch with those covers :)

    Stay tuned for future Twitch announcements :)

  3. A dedicated IGDB mobile app would be great however I would settle for your website to be better mobile optimized.

    Heya!

    We actually used to have apps, but our (IGDB) team is quite small we decided to terminate them as we couldn’t guarantee high quality support for them. We don’t plan to refocus on apps until we can guarantee that seal of quality again.

    However we do plan on revisiting and improving our mobile site before then!

    Stay tuned :)

  4. IGDB frequently logout me on mobile browser (firefox for android), after day or two, sometimes more.

  5. I have been a huge fan of your site and contributed with game additions. The prospect of having a fully functional and well supported IMDB for games was such a great idea. Unfortunately, since Twitch took over the platform, everything has come to a halt and It seems like Twitch only bought the site and it's userbase and never had any intend of developing the site further. Apps are no longer worked on, the site is buggy and you cannot even maintain a wishlist without any technical issues. It's a shame really to see this potential and love of every…

    Heya! Thank you for the honest feedback, it does mean a lot and we totally understand such frustrations. I can add some context on where IGDB is at the moment, but first i can say that it is absolutely still our plan to return to the website development and just like you the team is very eager to improve on the potential it has :)

    An acquisition is a complex matter from an engineering perspective, from months prior the public announcement we had set deadlines to migrate infrastructure, services, security systems etc.. to align with our new teams. That took significant time and effort, during which we had to put development of the website on hold beyond basic maintenance (unfortunately). Once done we decided to focus on growth of our core product as a database. Which is why the main product updates we made have been around our contributing users,…

  6. On the Press Kit pages, such as https://www.igdb.com/games/outriders/presskit there is a note on the inspiration of the press kit: Inspired by presskit() by Rami Ismail(Vlambeer)

    While the Vlambeer twitter that is linked to still exists, the company ended in 2020, so my suggestion is to change the Vlambeer link to that of Rami Ismail's own twitter https://twitter.com/tha_rami

  7. When I search for a game in the advanced search, I find the dates of some games that were released on pc are incorrect as for the date of their real release on a pc. Now these games Appear with dates of their first release on any platform and not their first release on a PC. Please fix that as for pc and the other platforms

    sorry for my bad english
