Wondering how Criticker works, or have a question that doesn't seem to fit under requests or bugs?

New game submissions aren't being approved

Postby law » Mon Oct 01, 2018 11:59 am

I know new game submissions are rare now that the database is 95% populated but if someone could check in once a week, that would be nice. One title that I've been unable to rate, Anodyne, has been in preview-only mode for at least two weeks now, if not longer.

Somewhat ironically considering the opening line, I'm bumping this to save creating a new topic.

Any chance we can have a bit of a clear out of the Games queue? According to the submission form it's now 2 months behind on approvals, and there's 8 pages of titles awaiting approval.

Everyone needs to know my stance on Sekiro.

Waiting for a long time for this game (The Suffering 2004) to be approved. Not my submission, but I want to rate it :D

Obvious solution would be to import games from some existing bigger database, preferably IGDB. It's not the most complete database out there, but they have policy of sharing their data and their API is commonly praised.

The other solution is to give some game accepting privileges for trusted members of the community, surely there are some people who are here for a long time and would be willing to accept a game or two in the evening for free.
