Works fine for me, have you tried forcing a refresh (ctrl+f5)?

There we go. Didn't think it'd be cached.

I know I've seen this before but I'll mention it anyways.

http://vgmdb.net/album/43737

This has two publishers but only one is in the db and is able to be linked. If I link one, the other one doesn't show up. The only way for them both to show up is if I don't link either of them.

Should be changed to function more like the artist field so an unlinked and linked publisher can both be displayed.

That's an old thing yeah, it's the same if you have a vgmdb page for the publisher (and link it) but not for distributor - it becomes invisible too... You can always make a page for that organization so it can be linked, that'll obviously make it visible again. I know I've been doing that several times (for commercial albums though, mostly).

Either that or someone updates the code... If it's possible at all.

edit: SS made a workaround fix for linked distributors when publishers are unlinked (because of Bandcamp issues which I asked about) some two years ago, that's the last time this was changed a bit, I think...

When I edit the album, I see "Wakana" and "Floating Cloud" as publishers. Is that correct? Wakana is also the artist, so I presume this is a self-published album, correct?

This could probably be fixed in the code, depending on how it gets the data from the database. We don't have a lot of coders, so such fixes are slow to implement.

It's one of those self-published joint circle albums. I don't think this would be a difficult fix considering the Bandcamp workaround is already in place.

From what you are saying, it doesn't sound complicated to fix since it sounds like a display problem.

Currently, I only know of GigaBlah and SS who can actually change the code, so they would have to decided if the fix is doable and if they have time to schedule the fix.

It would probably behave better just like unlinked artists (as it was mentioned) or unlinked products, no "visibility" problem there. I suppose there's some reason why the organization links work differently.

nextday, I think you're stuck with workarounds. If both SS and GigaBlah are not actively working on bug fixes or enhancements for the site, your request may take a long time to get any attention. Historically, VGMdb and its predecessor never had more than 1 coder.

Unfortunately, it's a common problem with software projects where the original coders enthusiastically get the software to a "reasonable" state and then leave it on auto-pilot.

Ah. They must be revamping the diff parsing right now I'm guessing (it's kind of been in the planning for a few weeks now).

Illidan put together a new diff capability using a better open-source diff engine. It just went live today. You can access the diff now by clicking on the edit menu and selecting "View History" (so no more clicking on that little dot).

Seems like the number of visitors is stuck once again to "1".

Most of the dates for Comic Market events are off by a day. For a list of all dates of all events, you can look at the official chronology.

It's a display bug that's been there since the event system was added. The dates for all the events should be correct in the vBulletin forum calendar, which is where they're created and edited.

I think the bug has to do with time zones.

Most events are time zone based. I have my time zone set to JST so everything shows up correctly for me.

Is adding "Available at" bugged? I tried adding several https links, instantly being redirected to said links so I thought the links weren't even being processed and the browser messing up stuff or something. Then when re-checking the Link admin page I see they actually have been processed, but titles of the pages haven't been extracted. And the https links show up as funky links plainly titled "https:" atm. (Some with more rights than me please remove the duped link there.) http://vgmdb.net/album/51519

https links have some problems, for now you can just remove the s and they work (at least for iTunes).
Removed the duplicate link.

Ok thanks. Any idea why the amazon.co.jp link is not showing up?

Jeez, that's from over 3 year ago (and I even was the first to respond way back then, feeling old). Oh well.

All Amazon links have been hidden for quite some time now, due to this: http://vgmdb.net/forums/showthread.php?t=8900

Sure that making it work by removed the www might not be a bug by itself?

Btw. how do we handle digital releases in different regions, offers by the same company's different regional websites?

I have a report of a member that is unable to answer on any thread that is already open. He's able to start a new discussion though, but after that he can't post anymore.

Is there any relation to the junior member status ? or being under 5 posts ?
I checked his profile@mod, all seems normal but he's on mode "Subscribe with no notification", generally no one uses that, is that it ?

Whenever that happens, it is because he didn't confirm his email address. I manually moved him over to registered, so now he can post.

Not a bug but a shortcoming of the db system. Entry in question:
http://vgmdb.net/album/55304
It seems to be a normal reprint so that's fine but the problem is platform which should be PS4 (better yet PS3 & PS4 because it's the same soundtrack). Only way to include PS4 is editing the JP 2013 master release which is wrong knowing that platforms shouldn't be added retroactively (PS4 version didn't exist back then). Leaving it unchanged, platform of the 2016 reprint is still wrong. What to do?

I don't suppose a hack of some sorts is possible to allow selection of different platforms for reprint albums?
