These are the built-in applications on the Nintendo 3DS. As far as I know you can't remove them and you can't download them from the Nintendo eShop yet they are listed under the Nintendo 3DS eShop category. Should stuff like this be allowed?

Our listings are for store offerings only. The database is not for "data" and our site cannot be used in this way by data collectors.
Those listings should be removed.

This one is not a prebuilt software, IIRC, it was something downloaded.

I'm fairly certain it was actually something downloaded from the eshop, it just wasn't publicly available for purchase.

Please remove Canadian release rear image so that I can post the correct one. This is a very tedious way to submit a correction edit.

I removed it, but regardless, your edit would have overridden it and replaced that artwork when accepted ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

My edits to these NGPC games were rejected, so I'd appreciate it if someone could give them a closer look.

https://vgcollect.com/item/38840 and https://vgcollect.com/item/38634 have the title wrong.
"Biomotor Unitron" is only two words, not three. In Japanese it's two verb groups which they englishize to "Baiomōtā Yunitoron".
(We have the title correct on the US version's entry: https://vgcollect.com/item/13463)
We have the sequel listed as having the same title but hyphenated with the number two after it: https://vgcollect.com/item/38714.
This sequel was a Japanese only release, but their title "Kikou Seiki Unitron" translates roughly to "Armor Chronicles Unitron" and does not include the word Biomotor/Baiomōtā or a numeral in the title any way you choose to translate it.
I would propose that the two word "Biomotor Unitron" title be used with the first game and the three word "Kikou Seiki Unitron" title be used on the JP sequel.

https://vgcollect.com/item/162694 should be deleted.
https://vgcollect.com/item/26676 is the correct entry.
The US release of "Puzzle Bobble Mini" was entitled "Bust-a-Move Pocket", while the European and Japanese releases retained the original title (so, https://vgcollect.com/item/38871 and https://vgcollect.com/item/38751 are correct.).

Per our naming rules, correct title is "Bio Motor Unitron" while the proper title "Biomotor Unitron" should be in alt-name.

Respectfully, I disagree. Gamefaqs has it wrong.
The text on the game cartridge and box, the Wikipedia article Gamefaqs themselves links to (and all of the sources cited in the Wikipedia article), Moby Games, and almost every other source I can find agree that "Biomotor" is written as just one word.
'Bio' is not an english word; it is a prefix derived from the greek word Bios, meaning life. Biology is its study, bioluminescence is when it makes light, bioengineering is when we intentionally manipulate it, and when we write about it it's a biography... but there is no word Bio. I already explained how it's not a word in Japanese either, and how their englishization of it also utilized the syllables just like a prefix and definitely not as a stand-alone word.
So now I'll take it one step further and assert that according to the "Official Gazette of the United States Patent and Trademark Office: Trademarks, Volume 1233, Issue 2" the Yumekobo game development studio told the U.S. government that it was one word.
But whatever; this is just a free online video game collectors' database so clearly I've already put too much effort into justifying this correction. Thanks anyways!  ;D

We decided on the naming rules so that we didn't have to have to actually learn all of the languages that games are printed in.

Other than following the guidance I already posted, the other options are to get GameFAQs to correct their listings, or if you want you can call for a common name exception vote here.

Nev ermind th en, Tri Predacus has suc essfully con vinced me that the Gamef aqs we bsite's op inion is more val id than the cla ims of the dev eloper or pub lisher, and so I now be lieve we cer tainly should use the ir titl e in stead of what's writ ten on the pac kage or what was sub mitted to any trade mark off ices. I'm su re we can all ag ree that indepe ndant res earch and lang uage compr ehension ski lls are overra ted and acc uracy is n't ve ry impor tant wh en it co mes to arch iving his tori cal in forma tion.

Joking aside: no worries; I'll just enjoy a laugh whenever I see errors like this in our database.
I love this site and appreciate everything y'all are doing to keep it running so smoothly!
