Default Milestones

I'm pleased to announce that, as of this morning, we've surpassed the 5000 album milestone. While not every one of those albums is a perfect entry, with fully researched tracklist/artist information, I think we've made some great progress towards that goal, and we're now offering a significant amount of information that was previously not available anywhere.

In addition, earlier this week we exceeded 100,000 total album page views. I've been particularly pleased to notice that many of our pages have top billing in the google search results for their catalog number.

So anyway, I'd like to thank all of you for everything that we've been able to achieve here. It's made me very happy to see a lot of new names on the active members list, many of whom have already made significant contribution; keep up the great work.

And once the Tokimeki Memorial discography is finished we'll surpass the 10,000 milestone in no time!

Let's keep up the good work.
I am sure VGMdb will be "the" VGM database reference.

This database is an excellent tribute to all the VGM ever composed. I appreciate seeing such projects these days. Being able to contribute is making me very happy. Let's work together, to make all those masterpieces unforgettable.

And just think: it's still in beta. Imagine how awesome it'll be when it's out of beta. Hooray and hurrah for VGMdb!

A rather notable achievement. I'm proud with how the site's turning out, even if I have been inactive.

Despite my drastic change in musical tastes to film scores, I really ought to visit this place more often. >_>

Lucky album #5000: Legend of Stafy CM Single!

Album itself isn't very notable.

And we just hit the 1000th artist, too (this guy). I still think the whole artist system is just badass beyond badass.

By this weekend, I'd wager. I just finished up the discography filter, tomorrow I'll add the company database.

It's coming together really nicely. And it's great to be doing a bit, however small.

You can count on me to keep contributing the type of data I have been. I may not be able to find much on new game OSTs, but as for data on already-posted stuff...I'm all in.

Looks like VGMdb doesn't require SEO at all to hit the top ranks.

It's good to see that the hard work's paying off. :Q

I was expecting for a site like this to appear some day. And I see it's doing really well . I'm happy to be part of a community like this and to contribute what I can.
Excellent so far. Keep it up.

I might as well announce this here. I'm going to be gone for about a week, as I'm in the middle of moving to a new town. I should be back online around Wednesday. In the mean time, keep up the great work.

Glad to help in my own small way toward the 5,000+ albums. VGMdb is the culmination of a lot of great expectations I had for someone doing something truly dynamic and comprehensive with cataloging video game music. Definitely great to be here.

And to celebrate the 7000th tracklist, I added the Neko Sound Collection
However, it might need a little polishing.

So, Kohta Takahashi's Fuckin' Sounds was the 10,000th album submitted?

Awesome.

Congratulations all, this is an amazing achievement.
