Re: Little bugs in the database 4

But who sorts through and finds the useful 1%? If somebody actually looked at the data they'd see that the comments have a 'section' entry which indicates what the comment is about. We already know what was released on ROM cartridges, compilations and covertapes so all the entries marked as "Compil...

Re: Little bugs in the database 4

and lots of opinions Some of these opinions are relevant (the comment about Lightforce music award is a good example), others perhaps not. I will just need more time to sort them out. They might be relevant, but everyone's got opinions. Why should anyone care what this person thinks? None of this s...

Re: Little bugs in the database 4

Many of these comments are from the WoS database I believe @StooB, but I'm sure Einar would have more details. The comments can just not be displayed if the majority of users were to be in agreement. I can do that easily if wanted. Unless someone is willing to volunteer to sort through them (based ...

Re: Little bugs in the database 4

But this is only the beginning. It is just the beginning! There are duplicates all over the place: Chronos , Ghosts n Goblins , Dynamite Dan II , Glider Rider . Knight Tyme now has three comments saying the 128k version came out first. There are lots of comments giving unnecessary compilation infor...

Re: Cover Artists 2

Spider Man

Cover art is by Al Milgrom, according to the cover of the original release and inside of the Americana re-release.

This is the American Al Milgrom, and not the Australian Alfred Milgrom already in the database.

Re: 'Engrish' messages

"Gun Jamed" instead of "Gun Jammed" really annoys me in Hewson's Marauder.

Re: Consultation on the future of quick sesrch

But before these changes Jetpac and Elite were on the first page results 5 or 6 anyway of quicksearch. As mentioned earlier Jetpac appears earlier at WoS because they don't have post 2013 titles. Try searching for Elite on WoS. Elite was on the third page of the search results as reported here , it...

If i want a more refined search I can use the advanced search.
That's only useful if you know what you're looking for. Someone using the quick search doesn't necessarily know that Elite was published by Firebird, or Jetpac was published by Ultimate.

Re: Little bugs in the database 4

JetPac81 (1982)

Jetpac was released in April 1983, so this could not have been released in 1982.
http://www.fruitcake.plus.com/Sinclair/ ... itions.htm gives a date of 1983.
