Default Platform category for Pachinko?

Should we add a category in "Platform" for Pachinko Slot Machines?
Right now I'm just putting them as "Other" under Platform.

Yeah, we could add that. Should it be more generalized to include slot or other gambling machines?

"Slot Machine" maybe. While we're on the topic, NEC PC-FX should be added too (successor to NEC PC-Engine).

IMO, there should be a Game Boy Color category also, along with the Game Boy and Game Boy Advance categories.

Categories that should be added:

Bandai WonderSwan (with "Bandai" prefix)
Bandai WonderSwan Color
Microsoft MSX (with "Microsoft" prefix)
Microsoft MSX2 (with "Microsoft" prefix)
Nintendo Famicom Disc System (with "Nintendo" prefix)
Nintendo Game Boy Color
SNK Neo Geo Pocket Color (the other Neo Geo consoles should also have "SNK" as the manufacturer prefix)
Tiger Gizmondo (with "Tiger" prefix)
Watara Supervision (with "Watara" prefix)

I edited most of these. Do the "Color" systems really have games that are exclusive to them (i.e. not on the mono version of the same console)? If not, it might not make sense to add them.

We could also do with a "Cellphone" category.

Yeah, all of the Color systems have games that are exclusive to them.

Agreed, though "Mobile Phone" would be the more global descriptor for this.

Okay, I've added all the Color platforms, and changed Cellphone to Mobile phone. There's already a Nokia N-Gage in the list, but that seems more like a gaming system than a phone.

While systems are being added, we could use an entry for the Sinclair ZX Spectrum too. Found a couple albums with music from it while going through the albums with "Other" classifications.

Okay, I added the Sinclair.

I also fixed the bug that was preventing the display of the platform diffs on the album edit history pages.

Wow, that was fast, awesome, thanks. I was just going to edit this next request into my previous post: Amstrad CPC. All these old PCs, I swear.
