I understand, but that creates an annoying styling double-standard that makes the list of games in our collection look inconsistent and messy.

That may be so, but that's an issue with EA as they're the ones who chose to formally omit the colon. GameFAQs, and therefore VGC, are simply following that established stylization.

This situation reminds me of another franchise which has made the same change. Before, Assassin's Creed titles used a colon (Black Flag, Brotherhood, Revelations), but now do not (Rogue, Syndicate, Unity.)

for information about one edit I do that was rejected (2 actually) :
https://vgcollect.com/item/221298

perpetual europe = perp games, and as I finished the game, it is writed in big in the end credit that it is published by perp games

With a situation like this, it could be valid to use Perp Games or Perpetual Europe as they are both correct.

I rejected your edit and am glad a conversation ensued. As we've clarified, the box back information states Published by Perpetual-Europe ltd. which is substantially different from Perp Games. For nearly every other entry field, the packaging itself is utilized to gather information aside from Release Date and Description (although the latter, rarely.) It is with this logic that I regularly do the same for Developer and Publisher fields, if possible. For most PlayStation games released in Europe, that information is clearly accessible, such as in this instance, where Perpetual-Europe ltd. is visibly present whereas Perp Games is only present in the game data itself.

in fact, perp game and perp game logo is present on the front cover from all their releases, and to the end credit, they use perp games instead of perpetual game


coze perpetual game, perp game, are 2 names for the exact same compagny, and they use commonly perp game and their perp game logo instead of perpetual europe



I have no problem using one name or the other, but the common name remain perp games

Common name exception can be requested here:
https://vgcollect.com/forum/index.php/topic,8361.0.html

But consider that we currently have 2 active polls for other change to Style Guide that haven't received enough traction to act upon. So a vote may not complete as it once did in the past.

I'm not sure why my edit to include what was originally packaged with Strider for NES is getting rejected? https://www.vgcollect.com/item/5593

There are 2 different known content packaging for this game.

Why am I not allowed to include both of them?

When I rejected your edit, I explained via admin comments that 1 entry cannot represent 2 items. If there is a difference in package contents, then a second entry needs to be submitted if you are wanting to publish information for an alternate release.

From your submitted information, one of the two releases included a registration card and poster/advert. If the difference between the two releases is recognized only by package contents and not by any physical differences in the packaging, then an entry name such as Strider (Registration Card) can be used for one of the two entries. If you know which of the two items was released first, that information should be submitted to the existing Strider entry.

Original information for https://vgcollect.com/item/96944 has a French barcode, editing Name & Front Cover to match. (Not trying to convert the entry)

Item was submitted with number BCUS-99249. The copy I got has it on areas listed in the description, but the spine shows BCUS-98280 (used in https://vgcollect.com/item/23848). Googled pictures of other copies and all I've found with visible spines show BCUS-98280 as well.
Figured it might've slipped by in the submission process but without pictures of the og submission's spine it's hard to tell.

I have found one showing a spine and it says what you say.

One thing about this is that it is not a good quality image but it looks to me the back number is 98249 and not 99249.

For whatever the reason is, this game on the various MLs have urls and item numbers redacted and it is from multiple sellers. It is a little weird and makes positive ID impossible for most listings. That one from Argentina was the only one that I could find with something not redacted.

I eventually found this one and has the same back and spine number as you say.
https://articulo.mercadolibre.com.mx/MLM-593540775-videojuego-heavy-rain-directors-cut-favoritos-ps3-sellado-_JM

So I will change the item number on the entry you posted.

Thanks for the double check!

And yeah, when adding photos on ML its moderation might mistake small print text for contact info which isn't allowed to be shared publicly, so sellers cover or blur it just in case.

Shark Tale / DreamWorks Shark Tale

https://vgcollect.com/item/2426

My reason for bringing this up is because the game is not called DreamWorks Shark Tale. While the packaging has the DreamWorks name above the logo, the manuals do not refer to the game as "DreamWorks Shark Tale", unlike a similar game, Disney Epic Mickey. Disney's website used DisneyEpicMickey as their subdomain name for the game, while DreamWorks used 'sharktalethegame' as theirs.
Multiple listings of the game use the "Shark Tale" name on here, such as the PC [NA] release and the Xbox [EU] release.
My suggestion is either change the other listings to what I believe to be the correct name, or change the few that are listed as just "Shark Tale" to "DreamWorks Shark Tale" as per the Common Name Rule.

The remaining Shark Tale entry names have been updated to DreamWorks Shark Tale.

This is an interesting one I found, I don't own it so I can't say anything for certain but there are a couple good online sources about this. The change I tried to make was to put it in the PS3 demos category. Yes it does say PS2 on the disc however it runs on a PS3 and the item number suggests it's a blu-ray. (BLUD-80018) So it might be a misprint? This list breaks down the item code for PS3 games -- https://www.obscuregamers.com/threads/ps3-not-for-sale-demo-disc-list.2895/

And here is a tweet from someone who owns it explaining it is a PS3 game with source photos of it being loaded on the PS3 XMB -- https://twitter.com/Mephistophea/status/977217675012304898
 
Edit: Also probably worth mentioning, when you put a PS2 disc in a backwards compatible PS3, it won't load up an image or name for the disc, it will just say PlayStation 2 Format Disc, you can see this in this video at 0:49 -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZf3t6RT-XU

Proposed edit: "InterAct Memory Card Storage Case"
Admin comment: "Does this item have the text "Storage Case" present anywhere on the packaging?"
This product is included in individual memory card blister packs and is listed as a "bonus storage case" on the front. Here is a good example https://vgcollect.com/item/133758

I actually found out after submitting the listing that it probably wasn't sold separately, so the entry could probably just be removed from the database to reduce clutter. I think it's included in every InterAct blister pack but I can't find enough info to support that statement. It also doesn't specifically include a blue memory card (those should also be sold in blister packs but I can't find any images right now)
