For the record, all information here is accurate, I just double-checked it. It's just ZXSR database that needs to be re-checked.

Hi guys - apologies if it's looked like I've been ignoring everything posted here - I haven't; well, not intentionally anyway. Things disappear so quickly off the forum front page Recent Posts that by the time I get here it's way down the list and Recent Posts are what I mostly use. Anyway, I have this topic bookmarked properly now.

To reiterate what I said last August, I'm still going through the CSV that Einar kindly provided where things didn't match between ZXDB/ZXSR. I'm recognising quite a few of the posts here as already being completed or known but yet to be done. The undertaking is pretty huge to be honest. There are mistakes in ZXSR, there are mistakes in ZXDB and I'm fixing and cataloguing the lot so Einar can update ZXDB. For example, there are a ton of reviews that are in neither database that should be, a lot of allocations to the wrong title in both databases, some incorrect issue allocations, quite a number of titles flagged as reviews in ZXDB that aren't Speccy reviews in the slightest (this, I guess, would be an issue with the import from SPOT) amongst other things. I reckon I'm about 60% done and that's taken over a year in my spare time. It's the reviews being added that is taking up the most time.

But please keep them coming and I will work through this thread and update accordingly. Thanks for all the hard work, guys!

this Hive has invalid review: the linked crash review is for another Hive.

Thanks guys.

I've gone through this thread, from first post to last, and corrected everything in ZXSR. There were some older ones which I was sure I had done which... well, I hadn't!

And just to let you all know where were are with the great Pre/Post-Covid ZXSR update: All updates have been corrected from Einar's spreadsheet of oh-so-long-ago now which includes many updates to it that I've noticed as I've gone through each issue. One thing I realised a couple of weeks ago is that there were quite a few Supplements that I had forgotten about or didn't even realise existed. I'm in the process of adding any reviews from these that I find and that should hopefully be it! I reckon it's about 95% complete now but there's also a refresh of the Crash data, some of which is full of formatting and spelling errors that I want to correct.

I'm getting there! Slowly but surely. Just over 15,000 reviews in the main table now and a few more to add.

just to make sure that you will not stay without something to do… ;-)

Monty on the Run contains the review for On The Run. it's "Your Spectrum Issue 19, October 1985 page(s) 44".

Cheers. This one's already been fixed (although not live on SC yet) after the mistake was shown up in Einar's CSV extract.
