@moho_00 Well, you added them but without filling out fields like Initial Release Date, Developer(s), Publisher(s) and Available On. I could help with filing out that information myself but I don't see a way to do that on the game's page.
Also, what is the Edition field for? It seems like it's a redundant field if the edition is already included in the title and there needs to be a separate entry of a game for each edition.
# 3376 - Posted on 4/9/2020 18:31:29
I usually use the Edition field for editions that don't exist here, for whatever reason. They haven't been added yet, they're excluded because they exist under many names (and the one I'm adding isn't the main one), or they're excluded because this edition may come with custom skin packs or something, but nothing worthy of a new entry here.
So, something I've had my eye on...
# 3377 - Posted on 4/9/2020 19:40:16
@AlexanderRavenheart - Nearly every game is added with the bare minimum of box art + title to give basic functionality and allow people to start adding them to their collections asap. The "fluff" data that isn't vital to site usage is added by the volunteer Curators (or moho_00 if he has time.) Though each of us have wildly varying times of availability as to when we can contribute. Not to mention we each tend to focus on updating certain groups or types of games. For instance, moho_00 tends to focus on older physical collections for platforms so that he can get a more fleshed out Browse by Platform list going.
The edition field, as Nocmin mentioned, is for filling in any specific info for an edition that isn't in the database. Generally if a game edition (ie: many GOTY editions) comes with DLC that's substantial by adding new gameplay content, it'll be added as a specialized Collection entry and have the various DLCs added to it as "sub games." But not all games have substantial DLC like the vanity content Nocmin brought up, so they generally don't have their own entry as a result. That's where you'd want to specify the edition yourself if having that distinction in your collection is important to you.
# 3378 - Posted on 4/9/2020 21:42:56
@dhobo already kinda touched on this, but I don't often fill out all of the metadata for new games simply because there isn't enough time. I am currently focused on filling out metadata for specific platform / regions to beef up the Browse by Platform page and that's where most of my time goes in regards to data entry.
The intent behind the Edition field is to provide an option to specify things like "Limited Edition", "Collector's Edition", "Greatest Hits", etc. The problem with the word "Edition" is that it can sometimes be used for things that we consider to be standalone entries. Generally speaking, if a new "edition" of the game is released after its initial release and has altered / addition content (typically in the form of expansions / DLC), we treat them as separate entries in the database because they're simply different. We don't support cosmetic type DLC, so this is not a factor when making a determination. Therefore, if the game has a "Collector's Edition" upon its release with a free skin or whatever, it's not a standalone entry and thus where the Edition field can come in handy.
On the curator side of things, when metadata is filled out for a game, we're able to outline the various editions, complete with corresponding cover art. The values entered this way will show up as auto-complete options when filling out the Edition field on a game in your collection (if they exist). Likewise, the corresponding cover art is displayed in your collection (if we have it).
Game releases are quite messy when you really dig into them and there are a multitude of ways you could approach it, but that's where we currently stand on things. For comparison sake, the way we handle them is very similar to MobyGames and GameFAQs (though I'm sure not 100% identical in all cases.)

@AlexanderRavenheart - An easy example for the "Edition" field is for games that release with a standard edition and a deluxe edition at launch. Adding deluxe edition in the field will give you the deluxe edition cover art (provided that a curator has had time to add that cover). We would not make a completely new database entry for the deluxe edition just because it has a different cover and a free extra skin or item over the standard edition.

@everyone - I think everything should be added now, let me know if I missed anything! For the Action Replays, I just created a single "Action Replay Max". I know GameSharks have weird versioning differences and it seemed useful to split those out back in the day, but not sure that applies to Action Replay?

Hello! I't would be possible to add this games?
Athletic Land (MSX)
F-1 Spirit (MSX)
Konami's Ping Pong (MSX)
Magical Tree (MSX)
Navy Moves (Amstrad CPC)
Nemesis 3: The Eve of Destruction (MSX)
Operation Stealth (PC)
Prohibition (Amstrad CPC)
Test Drive III: The Passion (PC)
PD: I think the correct name of the Athletic Land that's in your DB is "Mickey Athletic Land"
thanks a lot! :)

And concerning the Action Replays, it's pretty much the same as Gameshark in that regard. The versions have a lot of differences. For example, for the GBA/DS, Action Replay Max and Action Replay Max Duo are very different pieces of hardware. The former was for GBA cheats only, while the latter was for GBA cheats and allowed you to backup/load saves for DS games.
Would you mind adding Action Replay Max DUO? I've gotten into the obscure parts of my gaming history lol
And speaking of obscure, anyone remember the Nintendo E-Reader? Would that be considered GBA or its own Platform? Some cards functioned as DLC while others were actual games. Specifically looking for the following to be added:
