Hey everyone,

I'm currently working on a new system for requesting games (and other items) to be added to the database. Up until now, we've been relying solely on a forum thread, which has been okay for the most part, but it's time to make something a little better.

I'm far enough along that I wanted to try and recruit some victims...I mean volunteers for piloting the new system. I plan to do a "soft" launch to try and collect feedback before rolling it out to everyone. I'm hoping to have the pilot ready towards the end of November, but no date has been set in stone yet.

If you're interested in helping with the pilot, let me know by either posting in this thread or sending me an email at info at completionator dot com.

For now, of course, please continue using the "Games to Add" thread, but changes are a-comin'

I've been a bit inactive, but I'd be down to help if you're still looking for people.

Hello everyone,

The changes have been deployed and we'll now start switching over to the new system for requesting items! For now, I'm leaving the "Games to Add" thread open (and I'll post in there as well), just in case we need it as a back up for the short term.

You should see a new item under the Collection menu called My Item Requests. If you click it, you should see all of the requests you've made so far, along with a button to submit new ones. It's more or less the same thing you were doing on the forum, but now it's a little more structured.

Currently, there aren't any notifications for when items have been added, so you'll need to just check back on the page. I don't really want to blast people with notifications, so I may not add any, but we'll see. Also, I know the site is still pointing you towards the forum (we have some "help" text sprinkled throughout), but I'll clean that all up once we leave the thread behind for good.

If you have any feedback or questions on this new process, please post here!

sounds like fun

regarding the notifications, perhaps make that a setting in the setting page, "Notify me when games I request are added," would work?

@Redwarrior366 and @MyChaos - Please use the new Item Request page for requesting new items.

It is only logical I volunteer for this pilot program, since I am among the top posters in the old Games to Add forum thread. Count me in.

I'm down to help when I can. Finding the obscure titles would be a fun challenge.
