Site Updates

This weekend I had some free time, so I decided to do something about the rather horrific quality of some of the user posts on my site. I’ve gone through every single game listed here and erased hundreds of posts. From now on, I’ll be quite a bit more strict about which posts I allow; one-liners, posts in other languages, “I have this game” messages, posts about games other than the info page, etc will be erased. I’ve added a brief FAQ page describing this policy.

And in a “when you have a hammer everything looks like a nail” moment, I wrote some grammar-sanitizing code that tries to clean up common grammatical mistakes and leet speak. It’s not perfect, but maybe it will keep some posts here a little more legible. The forum is unaffected.

  1. Will people using other languages no why their posts were deleted? Assuming some may not fully understand english.

  2. I dunno about the non-English speaking posters. It seems like this site may not be very useful for somebody who cannot read English.

    I don’t have anything against other languages, but I’d like to contain such posts to the forum. Also, they make me uneasy when it’s a language I can’t read, because I don’t know if I should be moderating it or not.
