Shovel Knight
Xbox Games Store (X360) [NA]

http://vgcollect.com/item/83041

This game does not exist. It was never released on that platform, and as you can see, no users have it in their collections yet, and the cover art is not an XBox Live cover image. This listing should be removed

I submitted an edit on the 28th for Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel - Lionheart Edition (NA - Vita) filling in a bunch of the info, which was accepted. SilverBow sent in an edit a couple days later filling in the barcode & box text, which I didn't add, but in the process he deleted my description which told what was included in the special edition. So I just submitted another edit to re-add that. Here's the listing:

"When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed
if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I
became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the
desire to be very grown up.” ― C.S. Lewis

Sorry, but when I submitted the box text, it made your Description entry redundant. Besides, according to VGCollect's "Style Guide", your information is a verbatim quote from Amazon's promotional description, and thus, could be considered plagiarism and not allowed. I apologize again for taking the "Style Guide" too literally.

I tried submitting new images for a few games for PSN PS3 with images straight off of the Playstation store, but when they were (rarely) accepted they turned into pitch black squares. Tried resubmitting the right image but it was rejected.

Well, Amazon doesn't write those description burbs, they come from the publisher.  Anyway, no harm - I like having the field filled in even if it is somewhat redundant.

Another correction - Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures (NA - PS3) has the back cover image in both the back cover & media fields. Plus, I'm pretty sure I see a watermark on it in the bottom-right corner:  http://vgcollect.com/item/22602

Look at the other corner, and you see mobygames  ;). You can take it from them now, cause they stop using watermarks.
