v21.6 Improved Submit to Core system

October 8th, 2021

In this update, we are improving the Submit to Core system.

We have created a completely new site for processing your submitted entries, which is now fully responsive to your browser size and therefore now fully mobile-compatible.

At the same time, we created a new auto-login system, making submitting easier and more seamless.

New Submit to Core system

Core is our central online game database, the database that is searched when you add games by Title, by Barcode or by Platform in the Add Games screen. In general, the quality of our Core database is quite high. But still, with over 80 thousand games listed, some errors may occur. That is where our Submit to Core comes in, it lets you submit corrections to our Core entries, right from the software, so that you can help improving the Core.

The Submit to Core feature has already been available in our Game Collector desktop software for many years, but we have now introduced a new system that brings you to an online form to manually process your submitted data. This has to be done one by one. We are doing this to make users more aware of exactly what data they are submitting, so that the data quality of submitted entries will approve.
(with the old system, we regularly see users just submitting their entire database, which our content managers then have to go through, often to find out that most of it is just our own data submitted back to us 🙁 )

To Submit your corrected game entry to Core, right click its entry in the list and choose “Submit Game to CLZ Core“.

Important: the Submit to Core tool is a perfect way to submit your corrections for existing game entries. However, it won’t work for reporting problems like:

  • Barcodes being linked to the wrong game
  • Games being listed under the wrong platform

For problems like the above, the best way to report them is still to just contact us.

Looking forward to your error reports!
