Making it easier to keep our info up to date

Over the last few months, the Game Information team and TrueAchievement have been working hard on giving the community a new way to help keep all of the game information on the site up to date and correct.

The new system will allow you to submit a number of types of game information suggestions with a lot more ease such as:

Achievement Flags
Genre Changes
General Game Information (release dates, game/DLC titles, marketplace links)
and much more!

I hope this will encourage you all to use the system to inform the team of any game information suggestions and to make it easier for both yourselves and the team to keep our site looking as great as it does.

All you have to do is click the small blue i icon underneath the game or DLC image on its page and submit your suggestion using the form.

There is a more detailed thread regarding the new system within a new Game Info Submission board that you can find under the TrueAchievements section of the forums - Guidelines for Submitting Game Information. I would ask that you all read this guidelines thread before submitting any suggestions.

The old suggestion threads for genres, game info and flags will be locked as they have now been superseded by this system however you can still use the achievement tile and secret achievements threads which are now located within the Game Information Submission board.

I hope that you all enjoy this new system. smile

And...if you have any questions , comments or suggestions then please feel free to post letting us know or send a PM to myself or one of the Game Information team members (Staff List here)

Good automated feature that will hopefully work well.

I know that you have probably discussed it. I think that the flags could be on the same opening page as the other information. Took me a little while to find itfacepalm

Shouldn't Willyman be posting this now? wink

Good stuff, I'm sure a lot more people will be likely to report errors this way.

A link to the guidelines in the header of the form would be a good idea.

It's about time, loads of games have the wrong flags, or none at all. Metal Gear HD flags are completely screwed up.

Thus this is quite fun laugh

Already done one whole game, one DLC and updated some achievements with a missing Flag. Time to try find some more laugh

Oh my GOD this is so much easier than before. You can see all the achievement descriptions without having to copy those links (and getting them wrong)!!

The project was meant to launch before the switchover hence me posting it.

Spil you know new features are always being tested. I think a single thread for each game should suffice.
