    kitsunebi77's random stuff

    Been a long week, sorry for the slow reply I only care about blatant skirting of the cutoff and/or Gamefan/Game Informer ban. So again that means ..... "Hey, you guys can go grab this months issue of Game Informer from this link" or "Hey guys here is the entire 2016 year of Retro Gamer magazine that I found on some torrent" Now again I have no control what you put on another site, which means stuff we don't allow here. But again, if someone follows your link for some old Atari Explorer issue that you put up at Archive......and they come across Magazines that you uploaded, whether they are your creations or not......is no concern to me. Just like if they follow your link to Archive and come across GameCube ISOs. Now where it really gets messy is when I get a MarkTrade situation where someone is coming to Retromags to ask our members to fund their actions on outside websites. But ask me about that on another day

    I agree, I only care about what is posted at Retromags. So if someone wants to ignore the Cutoff date or the Game Informer/GameFan ban that we have, they can do so any at other magazine repository site that exists. I only ask that our community not blatantly/publicly direct people to items that are not allowed here. So as an example, if you scan something and put it over at Archive and it falls in our rules, feel free to link to it and mention it on the Retromags website. If the people that follow your link, find items that they would not normally find at Retromags, no harm....no foul. However if someone comes to Retromags and says "Hey guys I just scanned last months issue of Game Informer, its over at this link at Archive". Well that is a No No! Remember anything you scan and submit to Retromags, you are not prohibited from putting at Archive or any other website. So feel free to advertise the items you put elsewhere, as long as they follow our rules, otherwise keep it to conversations in the PM system

    Not really, because after I scan many of these, they will end up in the Retromags store for people to buy That Total 64 will probably end up getting chopped though

  11. Well its a new year and I need to tidy up the Magazine Database. I took some time to think about how I want to handle this and what makes sense going forward. Today I pulled all the Magazine Categories for the USA section into Google Sheets. Once the USA section is cleaned up I will move onto the International sections. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/17fpz8RPIXCJC-sqSVJu7mfkaocb6mpz_x9HkChCalbI/edit?usp=sharing Having this data in an online spreadsheet will be much easier for me to work with and collaborate with you guys on. Once I get the USA spreadsheet completed, I should be able to not only flip forward the dates for publications like Nintendo Power and GamePro, but I should have a much better understanding of the three main areas that each magazine falls into..... Static Publications - These are your magazines like Sega Visions, Next Generation, Nintendo Fun Club, etc. These magazines were published a long time ago, are defunct and once we set their issues to "Allowed" and "Defunct".....we really should't need to go back and adjust them in the future. This will probably be a very long list, that will grow over time. Jumping Publication - These are your magazines like Nintendo Power, Electronic Gaming Monthly, GamePro, etc. These magazines may have started out way in the past, but they existed into various spots in our cutoff dates. So these magazines need to be evaluated each year to push them forward. This list should be very short, that should shrink over time. Denied Publications - These are your magazines like DieHard Gamefan and Game Informer, where we have been asked NOT to digitally preserve them by the publisher. This category will also contain magazines like PureNintendo, @Gamer, Walmart GameCenter, etc.....where the magazines started relatively recently and are not close to the 10/15 year cutoff for defunct/ongoing magazines. This list also should be fairly short and items from this list should fall down to the other two lists depending on how long they lasted. I will also be comparing the Magazine Database categories to the Publications Database to make sure that everything that exists in one, exists in the other. Finally I will be running a dump on the USA section to see what issues are missing field data like the year released and such. If anyone notices anywhere that needs attention in the USA section for right now, let me know. I know when I went into the COMPUTE section I noticed that all the Month/Year data is missing, even though we should know it by now. If you know of any data that is missing, or any data that needs to be mass changed, let me know. Once I get done the USA section, I may open up the UK and Japan spreadsheets to be modified by anyone who wants to lend a hand so that we can get this done in a few days, rather than a few weeks or months
