  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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).

  4. Maybe this is just me, but I almost always miss something when I edit, update or submit a New Game, and never see it until I see the full list of changes on the Pending Submission page.

    It might help to have an "Are you sure?" page between Previewing all Changes and Submit/Update.

  5. I wasn't sure what to use for this and I think that's the point. Puzzle titles like Tetris, Pong, Breakout, and the like are very hard to define in terms of a Theme based on the choices available.

    An Abstract Theme might be the best case in these situations.

  6. (This could also fall under New Data Suggestion and Lists)
    For many games, especially older ones, there are multiple box art covers corresponding to releases in different regions of the world. Regarding this, the problem with the game pages on IGDB is that only one cover can be displayed and due to differing tastes from contributors this leads to the art getting changed back and forth, usually between the US and JP art. The classic Sonic and Megaman games are a fine example of this.

    My suggestion is to facilitate multiple cover art images that the individual user has the…

  7. This might sound redundant, but perhaps is would be beneficial to make the Status of a entries "Released" or "In-development" instead of leaving it blank for this development state.

    It appears rather common people confuse the terms of Alpha, Beta. etc. for something they need to fill out without understanding what those states are, marking a fully released title as an "Alpha", or leaving a title in perpetual "Early Access" after the full release. Contrary to all other data points of an entry, this is the only one it's encouraged to be left blank, while new users feel compelled to…

  8. I'm not an advocate for the platform, but I feel if Sega CD and 32X addons are their own platforms, this should probably be one as well, even for as short lived as it was.

  9. The ability to link a gamejolt.com page with your games since most of my games are on Gamejolt and i'd like to make categories for them

    Hi!

    We looked into this and we thought that indeed adding Gamejolt might be a good fit. This has been added to our backlog and we’ll take a look at it when we can.

    Thank you for the suggestion!

  10. This might be alittle complicated without some way for Users to manually submit Critic Review links, but there are a large number of high profile journalists and game reviewers that have stepped away from writing full articles on a game that an AI bot can web-crawl, and have switched to primarily YouTube video reviews. Many of these are now on Metacritic as well.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. Many games have chapters, which could be listed here potentially alongside a time to beat for each chapter since games can have 30 minute chapters or 2 hour chapters. This would help people get general ideas of where they are in the game, or simply compare playtime by chapter.

  16. Currently, when titles do not have an included Screenshot, the highlighted backdrop of the page displays a green background color. While I'm sure this is intentional in order to entice users to always be sure to add one, there isn't really anything that communicates this is what caused the green background. Further from an aesthetic point of view, it highly clashes with the purple "theme" of Twitch/IGDB.

    As a suggestion, Twitch channels that don't include a background image will display a repeating pattern of the user's name. Or, an icon to signify a broken image to tell users to add…

  18. Both Castlevania for the N64 and Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness are missing from the Categories menu of Twitch, but they are not missing from IGDB's site. I have spent the better part of two hours trying to figure out how to inform someone, ANYONE, of this (admittedly small) oversight and ended up here.

    There has to be a better way to inform Twitch/IGDB of problems of this nature than to wander aimlessly around the Twitch help section, then give up and use the feedback forum, hoping that a relatively minor fix will be noticed by someone with the power and…

    Hey there!

    For all things IGDB it is best to come to us directly rather than via Twitch help. Our preferred way is via Discord :)

    Discord: discord.gg/igdb
    Contact form: https://www.igdb.com/feedbacks/new
    Twitter: https://twitter.com/IGDBcom

    Regarding the Twitch categories, while IGDB provides the data but what ends up there is decided by Twitch itself. In the case of Castlevania it is due to the fact Twitch is not ingesting Versions of games at this time. We are however working on expanding the data set so that they can become categories. Stay tuned!
