As long as you reply to the negative feedback in a good way, people can go and read it. What is your pct now? I wouldn't worry about it if you are below 99.0%. That's my cutoff for buying from sellers that are not in SEA. I'm sure other people have different tolerance levels regarding a seller's feedback.

Cover that was on entry, and cover on GameFAQs is of the instruction manual. Fixed cover.

They were both expensive, I think the Framemeister was $200+ dollars lightly used

Well that's not expensive like I was thinking. Last time I tried finding a Framemeister, the cheapest I could find was an XRGB-2 for $650.

Although I suspect that this is not the purpose of this category, they would end up going into "Promo movies/videos"

Is the "Best Seller" moniker for GameCube games a label variation or a separate release?

There are items in the DB that have both (Best Seller) and "- Best Seller" and I was looking for some clarification.

Looking at an example, Super Mario Strikers, it seems that Best Seller is just a cover variation vs the original. The disc is not any different. The case number and UPC are the same. The two main differences is the presence of the Best Seller starburst on the front and different cover numbers on the back.

Cover Art is incorrect.  Nintendo puts publisher logo on the front of box.  Inti creates is not the publisher, Nighthawk Interactive is the publisher.  Simple ebay search will show that all copies of this game have the Nighthawk logo and not the inti creates logo.

Submitted correction and it was rejected.

I did a reject on it as well, must have been the second time. The reason for reject was (as it happened before reading your post) was that the replacement artwork had a ton of whitespace around it.

I fixed the images on the entry.

Need photo proof that 182876 has text "Lovely Edition" on the packaging. I found one picture of that version but it was front picture only and that text isn't present.

I have updated the entry to use a descriptor, and put Lovely Edition into alt-name and description.

Unreleased (but official) is only to be used for prototypes and things that were manufactured but never released officially. For official product entries that are announced but not yet released, use Official Release (Upcoming)

Ok, so the release was wrong, but you fixed it. :)

Regarding Lovely Edition, does the publisher's own description not suffice https://www.iam8bit.com/products/untitled-goose-game-lovely-edition-playstation-4 ?

We're not interested in tracking SKUs on some website.

The example I like to use is: if someone finds this item at a thrift store, how could they know it is called Lovely Edition if that text is not present on the item itself? If you cannot tell from the item itself in sealed form that it has a name like this, that name should not be in the item title. It is perfectly fine to put that information in the description, because that is the place to put trivia.

OSSC is the go-to HDMI converter that I know about. Some may prefer Micomsoft's products, but they are hard to find and super expensive. I haven't used either, I still use CRTs or 4:3 LCDs for older consoles.

Hello,

This is the entry for Untitled Goose Game PS4 [NA] - https://www.vgcollect.com/item/187532. It has the correct name, image, and release status.

There is another entry named Untitled Goose Game PS4 [NA] - https://www.vgcollect.com/item/182876. However, it has the image of "Untitled Goose Game - Lovely Edition" and the correct Lovely Edition status of "Unreleased (but official)". Therefore, it should be renamed to "Untitled Goose Game - Lovely Edition". My edit was rejected so please fix. Thanks

Yes, the first Diablo it was a common tactic for PKers to put a town portal from somewhere in the PvM area, then just sit there and cast Nova when people came through the portal. Diablo had the same "Open battle.net" type mode as Diablo II, but did not have closed or ladder sections. This meant that (also like Diablo II Open) you could used hacked characters in multiplayer.

I can't speak about PSN, but it is possible to "own" a DLC for a game you do not own on Steam. Or at least, it is possible to have a key for a DLC. Whether or not Steam will let you activate a DLC without having a game is another story. If anyone wants to try it out, I have some DLC keys for various games.  8)

Game type is by sub-category, not by entry.

Everything in a PSN category is classified as "Games - Digital" as opposed to "Games" which is the designation assigned to physical categories.
The distinction should be broken down properly in your about page.

No it was because I know how to strafe jump.
Also I tend to play FPS with a high mouse sensitivity, and use optical mouse with no mouse pad. There is a trick with that type of mouse where you can aim faster than normal by using what I call "mouse tilt/lift" where you pick up the mouse slightly when moving. This is something you can do with an optical mouse when used on a flat but non-reflective surface. It does not happen when using a mouse pad. I do not know if it is a known trick or not.
