  1. Something fairly simple: a "clear all notifications" button on the "Your Notifications" page. I do a lot of editing at once, so it's a bit annoying to have to remove each notification one at a time when I'm bombed with "your change has been approved" messages. Maybe a similar thing for the notification bell button up top as well?

  2. It would help with searching for specific kinds of games and I'll make sure to help with sorting games into these categories since I've made my own sites about such games.

  3. It would be great to mark games or DLCs/Expansions that are no longer available for purchase, because they have been taken down or the stores selling them have been closed.
    In the past™ games were sold on discs - even nowadays, if you can find them, you can play them. Modern games and expansions are often sold online only. If the shops are closing, the possibility to acquire these games is gone, making it impossible for game collectors to legally buy these games. It would be nice to mark games and/or expansions which are impacted by this.

  4. There are alot of titles that seem to list multiple divisions as publishing arms for each region. While this can make sense for Developers like Ubisoft Montreal or Shanghai that are responsible for the creation of the game, it makes less sense for Publishers that serve as regional PR wings.

    Ex. "Sega" vs Sega of Japan, Sega of America, Sega of Europe.

  5. Sometimes users may not log onto the site for a time, while there may be pending questions from Admins that may require feedback or clarification to get approved.

    Having the ability to enable Email Notifications for new comments on pending entries could help notify users in a more convenient way.

  6. It would be great if I could get notified about game info changes for games I follow. Maybe you could show a message in notification section for this.

  7. This is only a minor pet-peeve and super conditional, but there are times when Titles with the same name are released in the same year. This makes it fairly difficult to differentiate titles from each other when you are adding titles into various lists in the Edit menus. (Bundled Games, Versions, etc.) Most of the time you will see a year of the release in these menus, but there are examples of different versions released in the same year.

    I will sometimes add the platform to the title of a game to help this, but this isn't the cleanest look…

  8. The Multiplayer Modes seem to have a theme when you look over the options available in Categorization. Almost all of them include specific special cases for some form of Co-op or shared Split-Screen, but none for LAN Competitive.

    The most obvious examples I can think of would be the GBA Link cables for local LANs such as the Sonic games, or the Ad-hoc/WiFi features of the PSP, 3DS and others where these aren't Co-op modes or Split Screen, but Linked and Competitive.

  10. As means of promoting game editing, there could be a game recommendation for the user. It would be based on the game pages the user visited, the games the user rated, etc. A notification could appear on the website with the recommendation, and there could be a place in "Karma hunters" for some more recommendations.
    It would certainly help with many more game info missing, as the person would be prompted to help with something they most probably know.

  11. Titles contained within Collections and other Bundles can be listed as included by displaying links on the Game Page to each respective title's own page. However there is no current way to list titles unlocked as secrets from earning achievements or other various tasks in game.

    Ex. Completing the Xbox release of House of the Dead III unlocks House of the Dead 2.

  12. Currently, if a title is stated to be an Expansion for another game, the Expansion appears in the original game's page. However, Standalone Expansions do not get the same connection, either in the base game or in their own page, even though the option to link them is in the Edit page of the Standalone Expansion.

    Examples: MechWarrior 2 and Mercenaries, Uncharted 4 and Lost Legacy, Spider-Man PS4 and Miles Morales

  13. A list of mods could be shown as toggable to not mess with the layout of the page, since some games have an extensive mod library (I'm looking at you Super Mario World and Super Mario 64).

  15. When sorting lists by Release Date, titles missing ones are often sorted to the front as future titles, or to identify ones that need a Release Date added. However, cancelled titles never hope to come out, and therefore never will have a date. Ability to disable this setting, or identify the time it was announced as cancelled could alleviate this problem, over a permanent TBA or TBD.

  16. This might sound counter-intuitive, but in regards to titles that don't involve Storylines, an option to disable the Storyline feature, or just a simple flag that states the title has no in-game plotline, would help to identify the number of titles in the database that have no need for the tag.

    Annual sports titles or generic puzzle games really have no need for the datapoint, and it could greatly reduce the Karma Hunters page percentage below 93% Missing Storylines.

  17. Add Wikidata item related to the game. Wikidata links to IGDB and this could be a way for IGDB to link back to Wikidata.

  18. There are times some users confuse the general name of "Mobile" to include iOS, Android and other modern mobile platforms.

    It might be prudent to rename this to Legacy Mobile, JAVA, WAP, or other name to help differentiate it form those common names.

  20. Pick topics on how to review a game

    example
    20% gameplay
    80% soundtrack

    don't ask the user for a final score determine the total score based on each category

    does not have to be my idea though just upvote this if you wanna see a more robust review system
