First, I do not leave any console with access to power if I am not using it. All of my sets besides the movie watching sets are on power strips or bars that I turn off when not in use. Beyond that, the only console that I know is not safe to leave with power access is the US Saturn, because of the known design flaw that causes it to drain the battery.
Thanks for the info/tip, I did not know that the US Saturn has a known design flaw that causes it to drain the battery.

It figures, the only retro console that I had plugged-in with power access was my US Sega Saturn.  So, I just unplugged its power cord.

Sorry, I did not mean to hi-jack this thread.

I would like to now how many items I have created.

This is and has been allowed for years. This topic is not about pack-in games for hardware or accessories.
Thank you for clarifying that entries for pack-in games for hardware or accessories are already allowed. I did not mean to take the thread off topic.  (I have edited my above post, to keep it on topic.)

As I said in my previous post; I will vote Yes for "2. Allow pack-in games from games or game packs", as this gives users the most choice." for the reasons I stated in that post.

I also believe pack-in games, included with hardware should be allowed their own entry, under the game category.

People who don't like this type of entry (pack-in games from games or game packs) could just ignore them and not add them to "their" collections.

I buy mainly unboxed, used games and used items, I don't like being to be forced to add things I don't own into my online collection such as piece of hardware as a box set of games, just to be able to add the packed in game. Why should I be forced to add the hardware box set I don't own to my collection, and then put a note on that I don't own the hardware box set.

I understand some users only collect fully boxed 100% complete items and that's terrific for them.

However, I think that VGCollect should be as flexible as possible and allow users who don't collect fully boxed 100% complete items to easily track the items they own. I would like the option to show a picture of just the pack-in game if that is all I own, I could do this if the pack-in game was allowed to have its own stand alone entry.

We have entries titled like "6 in 1 Game Pack", with the six games on 6 different 3.5" discs, each just labeled with the name of the game, but not "6 in 1 Game Pack", as it is now it is very hard to track these type of games in the database. Sometimes I don't have the box, or all the games, but I would like to be able to track the games that I do own.

Being flexible, and allowing diverse types of game game collectors, to make use of the site, seems to be the proper thing and most inclusive thing to do.

I've refactored the search dropdown so it should stick until you click off. Let me now if that helps.
Yes, thank you!
