Stopped scanning until I can switch my scanner out on Friday, It keeps putting vertical lines down the pages. Right now I am working in the Wiki Section and going to be scanning posters and covers for the Nintendo Power">NP set tommorow :)

You have to admit that the databases are reaching quite the impressive amount of content. Actually, in some ways I'm shocked that there aren't people filling it with links to unreputable websites or spam, or trolling it with fake content and information. I suppose it shows how good the - admittedly small - Retromags Community is.

I am eager to see what magazines you'll be scanning, Phillyman. Given the wide variety of stuff you've been sending out as part of the Retromags contest, I imagine that you must have quite the collection and assortment of magazines from various eras.

Yes, the Magazine Database is growing in size each day. But I keep a very close eye on it for any signs of abuse. Considering that users have to sign up to Retromags in order to perform edits, it will be very easy to catch, ban and reverse any abuse that finds it's way into the system. You should have been here when we were using MediaWiki to try to create a Magazine Database. Since that system was completely separate from the forum software, we would forget about it and then find out that it was being spammed to death.

That must have been a sight to see, and I'm sure it was very frustrating at the time. No spam - excellent. I'm quite pleased that it's not be spammed or abused, a close eye is an eye that is peeled.

I have to say that between just about everyone here, small in number though we are, the database is progressing marvelously.

Thanks for scanning those Numb Thumb issues! Looking forward to the upcoming Game Players Sega Guide, too - haven't read that issue. :)
