  1. As discussed on Discord, there are a number of digital storefronts that don't necessarily define where you can play a game. (Ex. PSN Store is on almost all of their devices, but some only play on select devices. PS3-only, PS3/PS4, PS4/Vita, Vita/PSP, etc.) Removing these platforms will make this more standardized.
    (Confirmed under current internal discussion)

    Affected Platforms:
    SteamOS -> Linux
    PlayStation Network -> respective title for PSP, PS Vita, PS3, PS4, PS5, etc.
    Xbox Live Arcade -> Xbox 360
    Virtual Console -> Wii, WiiU
    eShop -> respective title for 3DS, Switch

    Hey!

    We have added ability to remove platforms, and have proceeded with doing some cleanup. SteamOS is now gone for example.

    Going forward we will look at reintroducing such a concept as “stores” tied to platforms instead. This is the first step :)

    Thanks!

  2. Hello,

    We are developers of a game "NeosVR" and we have built following of about 1.5K in the last months.

    Recently the name has changed to "Solirax", which is incorrect, as it is name of our company:
    https://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/Solirax

    Additionally a new category "Neos VR" has appeared, which has correct name, but fraction of the followers:
    https://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/Neos%20VR

    These correspond to IGDB entries that were seemingly auto-generated.

    We'd like to merge those entries, without loosing the 1.5K followers on the incorrect "Solirax" entry.

    Will the followers automatically be merged on Twitch if the entries are merged on IGDB? Or is there a…

    Hey there!

    Apologies for the issues! I believe we already discussed on Discord, we’ve cleaned up and handled the data issues on the database.

    As IGDB we unfortunately have no handle on categories or follower count.

    Thank you!

  3. When attempting to define a Platform for each title, especially with PlayStation anything, it can be alittle taxing to need to type out the full name of the platform for each entry. Unlike older platforms like "Nintendo Entertainment System (NES)" or "Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES)", these platforms do not use their common abbreviations in the title.

    Ex. "PlayStation 3" vs. "PlayStation 3 (PS3)"

    Hello!
    Good news! your suggestion has been implemented, and you can now make use of platform aliases when inputing release dates :)

    Thanks!

  4. Hi!,

    When searching for games, those with the "dupe" category could be hidden. In this way the results shown are cleaner.

    Hey! Good news, this is done! we are now hiding all marked duplicates. If you ever spot a new one please report it to us via Discord :)

    Thanks!

  5. Many players use the "Shogi" category without having any idea what Pony Canyon is.

    Ladies' Professional Shogi_Harbour and I (amateur) recommend this description:
    Traditional Japanese board game similar to chess.

    r/twitch moderator ossini suggested (when I inquired about changing the category description):
    Shogi.. as its own category it likely should be an IRL category unless you guys have a specific game you use for it.

  6. two games are linked below where the listed 'Platforms' (near the top of the game page, below 'Genre') don't correspond with the full set of platforms in the Release Dates section.
    in both instances the missing platforms are 'Mac' and 'Linux', don't know whether it's an issue specific to those platforms or merely coincidental.
    of note is that one of these (Transistor) also has some platform information added on the Companies page, while the other (Nuclear Throne) does not.

    Heya!

    Good news, this is done and fixed! platforms should now be correctly reflected in both the game page header and the sidebar.
    Additionally we recently did a lot of work on API syncs so additional issues should be taken care of there.

    If you spot anymore on this, please let us know.

    Thanks!

  7. Unlike Screenshots, Video Submissions do not show a preview thumbnail before submitting an Edit. I have a number of times it seems my copy/paste didn't fire correctly and Ninja Gaiden gameplay videos ended up in a few titles (like Star Trek TNG Genesis), so I was unaware of the mistake until after the Edit was approved.

    Good news! This is done and now live, upon video submission you’ll see thumbnails being generated dynamically.
    Thanks for the submission!

  8. A Notes Section for Edit Submissions would help abit. If you have a slightly contentious edit like updating the coverart or release dates, you could state your reasoning/mindset in a Note section for an Edit. These would obviously be only visible to the submitter and admins (or voters if so chosen).

    (This is supposed to already be in the pipeline for a future update, but I just wanted to add it here as well.)

    Hello!
    Great news everyone, this feature is now live!
    Contributors can now leave notes/comments on their contributions (Games, Companies, Platforms, Characters, Engine, People).
    This will work both ways in helping us with validations, and admins giving feedback on contributions.

    More details on Discord if you wish to discuss :)

    Thanks!

  9. Super seducer was recently demmed "erotic" by twitch staff. this is a slippery slope for satire games, as many streamers themselves could be considered "erotic" under the same guidlines of "****** advances/innuendos as the main content of a game" is the primary content of https://www.twitch.tv/austinshow . banning this game means that this streamer as well as https://www.twitch.tv/amouranth and many others should be banned as well

  10. Currently, logging in while browsing a page will send the user to the Discover page. This should be altered so that logging in, or even signing up, should keep you on the present page. This will make users feel more welcome while motivating newcomers to keep browsing. This is admittedly a rather small issue and the logging in aspect will be largely mitigated once the site is optimized to where users aren't logged out at certain intervals, but still seems significant enough to recommend.

    Heya!
    Happy to say this has been resolved! Now when signing back into IGDB we will not be redirected to the homepage, but instead stay on the page you were browsing.

    Thank you :)

  11. Add a revision date to Contribution Guidelines at the top of the page https://www.igdb.com/contribution_guidelines
    Small text with the date in the form of "Updated on: XX.xx.***" under the 'Contribution Guidelines' button in the Editor would be nice too.

  13. (Dunno if I've count UX/UI as API Bugs, but entering here.)

    Currently you have the option to add additional Ratings to Edit Pages. However, this only adds PEGI automatically with no options for CERO or updated ESRBs for re-releases. Users have no means to remove these additions once created.

    Hey! This is done, we have removed the function to add/remove individual PEGI rating, that wasn’t intended indeed. Now all games have one age rating of each (PEGI & ESRB).

    Support for more regions are planned :)

  14. For example, Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered is considered just a version of the original so I can not put that I am streaming it. This causes problems because Spiderman Remastered is made for a completely different platform which can completely change viewers interests in watching or not.

    Hey! Good news, this is done :) Yesterday we rolled out an update that allows us to better keep track of games. Without having to rely on Versions we are now able to track: Remakes, Remasters, Expanded Games, Ports, and Forks.

    Thanks!

  15. The splintering of these games essentially removes the ability to differentiate between someone playing the OG game versus the collection. In the case of Halo, this makes a massive difference as each MP match can be a different game. This significantly lowers the discoverability of channels that play these games.

  16. When a title is mispelled by adding incorrect spaces, deleting those spaces does not apply to updates or trigger a "pending approval" flag.

    Adding spaces appears to function correctly, just not deleting.

    Ex. LittleBigPlanet 2: Collector's Edition, instead of Little Big Planet 2: Collector's Edition

  19. People have noticed the categroy got removed today. I can only assume by error, since the Supreme Commander category is still up which effectively noone watches. I suppose it was done with the intention of removing redundant categories but Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance is a standalone expansion of the original title which the vast majority of players prefer.
    I personally found most streams via monitoring that category and I suppose many others did as well. So the removal of it hurts this niche community.

  20. NBA Supercard is a relatively new game to the app store and I can't select it as a category which will make it not only hard for people to find my streams, but also other people's streams on this game! I think adding it to the category list would be great! Here is the official Twitter of the game if you need more information and also game cover art! https://twitter.com/NBASuperCard
