Items are added to the database as-needed by users.

We have a group of volunteers ("Name Tribunal") that will try to approve official names for consistency. But, they only work with existing listings. So, users have to create them first. Someone has to be the first. It's also means our database is sometimes sparsely populated (especially for games that may be somewhat obscure or new).

For New Layout, do a search, then use the "Add Unlisted Game" button on the left. It brings up a form where you can enter anything you want. Old Layout users can use the add links on the My Items page.

In the case where the item is listed for one platform but not the one you want, a trick that makes this easier is to add it initially using the other platform, then edit your listing to change just the platform to what you want.

Bill, is there a way to do it on the mobile site (other than clicking the link in this thread which will get buried over time)?

Well, you can use that same trick I mentioned at the end of my last post. Add a similar item, get the form and change it to what you like.

Generally speaking, the mobile site is limited by design and lacks many of the least-used features.

I get that it is limited to make things simpler, but I would think adding a new item is a pretty significant function to omit.

I think it's rare when someone has to add an item by hand because there's no existing listing for it in the database. I also think it's rare for people to be using the mobile site to add items to their page. Given that it's potentially a lot of data-entry and thus harder to do with a mobile device.

This is mainly about the limited screen real estate of the mobile website. It's not hard for me to add a button for adding an unlisted item. But, that button would add to the clutter of the page despite not being used 99% of the time.

I could perhaps stick the "add unlisted" button on the bottom of the search results. I think the forum pages for the mobile site do that sort of thing, though I think they are cluttered and not great. There's often this struggle between wanting to keep the site simpler for newer or more casual users vs. feature-rich for the more sophisticated users. I think the Old Layout is more the latter and the mobile site is more the former. Maybe the New Layout is in between.

I think there's also an aspect of this feature that we intentionally obscure it because we want people to search first and use existing listings vs. just adding stuff by hand (because that can lead to lots of different listings for the same item and more work for the NT). e.g. We didn't intentionally put a bit "add item" link in the nav bar that drops people into a blank form because that lead to that sort of problem in the past.

Having it at the end of search listings seems like a natural place

Yeah, you can just add them yourself. I'm constantly adding games because I keep buying crap that nobody else cares about lol.

OK, I added an "Add Unlisted Game" button at the bottom of item search results for the mobile layout.

So this will be on the mobile layout now correct? I'm always on my phone and prefer it to be honest. It's simple lol

It may be worth reconsidering some of the limited design of GTZ's mobile website. When I originally made it, it didn't seem that popular. I think it was 10% of the usage. But, checking just in the last day, the mobile layout was 28%. It's fairly popular. The New Layout was 22%, Old Layout 48%.

Do games ever get removed from the database? I though for sure Okamiden (for the 2DS, iirc) was in the database, because I had it on my want list for a while in the past. I searched for it a few months ago and today and couldn't find a listing for it either time.

We have it for DS: https://gametz.com/Games/Nintendo+DS/Okamiden.html
I think we don't have a separate platform for 2DS.

We don't. 2ds is just a 3ds with less fancy hardware.

We also took new 3ds out as a separate system since it's essentially the same thing except a few games need the extra processing power and it was just more confusing

Bill, can you add the available/wanted/collection dropdown menu to the mobile "add unlisted item" page?

I think it just automatically defaults to available currently

If you are on mobile, click on the game, then click edit listing.

There should be an option to delete the listing there.
