Random and suggested database browsing addition
« on: September 13, 2017, 11:27:32 am »
Any interest in having a 'random item' or 'suggested/recommended game' listing? It could be used for discovering new content, such as games, series, and merch, as well as possibly creating awareness and interest toward some more obscure things like spinoff titles and series related collectibles the user might not have known about.
Could be added to the 'Browse' tab, or maybe even it's own tab.

Thoughts and additions on this?

It had been suggested in the past to use an item's release date as a method of showing some random item to appear on any given day. For example, it would know today's date and then it could show something that was released on this day in the past.

Not only is that nifty, that would convince me to go through and find listings without release date info and do the research.

Hmm... those sounds like some decent ideas. :-) I'll have to keep those in mind for future updates.
