Changed settings so all members can see this section.

If you can't see it, let me know in here. It is not visible to guests.

Just read it and learned I've been using Unreleased (but official) wrong this whole time. Whoops..

Yeah... I thought we were supposed to use Unreleased (but official) for things that haven't released yet.

If we're making that change are we going to add Official Release (Upcoming) to the release type options?

Updates
- Re-ordered games section in Description section. Added example for documenting insert variations among different releases, where the actual variants do not get a separate entry.

- Added "unwritten rule" of using forward slash with spacing on games with multiple game titles, in the Item Name section.

- Added clarification that accessories with games as download codes but not physical games are considered games in the Platform section.

Info needed
Still looking for examples of US items with UPC missing the country code and check digit.
