I've added a new page called Editor's Favorite Songs. This will list the favorite songs for just the editors of this site so we can gauge the overall opinion of the community. Each editor is encouraged to vote for up to five songs per platform as their favorite. If you want to vote for an existing song, add your vote to the total, then add your user name to the comment in the edit code so we can keep track; for example:

2 <!-- Users: TheAlmightyGuru, YourNameHere -->

Of course, you're welcome to add a new song to the list too! I hope you'll join us in creating a list of favorites for each other and our guests! --TheAlmightyGuru (talk) 10:57, 2 February 2016 (MST)

Vinyl Goddess From Mars Songs

Hey Cancer, thanks a lot for adding song pages for VGFM. I noticed that you're using the main menu screen as the picture for each one. The image on the side should be the place where you most commonly hear the song. So, if you could, please update the screenshots. Thank you so much for your contributions! --TheAlmightyGuru (talk) 14:48, 24 September 2016 (MDT)

Glad enough to help =) I would remove that picture where necessary but how do we avoid No screenshot category? --Cancer (talk) 15:28, 24 September 2016 (MDT)
Sorry about the long delay in reply. One screenshot should always be used in the template on the top-right. This screenshot should be the one where most people will remember the song being played. So, for example, if a song is heard in stage 1 and stage 7, we should use the stage 1 screenshot because most people will have played stage 1, but far fewer will have reached stage 7. Thanks again for all the song updates you're adding! --TheAlmightyGuru (talk) 08:04, 5 October 2016 (MDT)
Alright! However, is that Ok when the same image of a stage is used more than once? --Cancer (talk) 04:48, 7 October 2016 (MDT)
One other thing, I noticed in some of your song pages with multiple screenshots you're encasing them in a table that is left aligned. The SongScreenshot template actually supports an optional alignment parameter. You can use it like this:
I intentionally used the left alignment, thanks!:)--Cancer (talk) 04:48, 7 October 2016 (MDT)

Old table layout

Hello Cancer, first of all, thanks for your glorious and great updates of table layouts!

I've found one problem with redirects, Wok (W32) for example, please fix platform names to their redirect pages, i.e.:

{{Platform|Windows#Windows 32-bit|Windows 32}}


{{Platform|Windows 32}}

Because the first one adds game page to wrong unexistent category Category:Windows.

Besides that the Platform template should be used only inside Publication template, except the releases are missing on the page.

Once releases section with publications is added, Platform template inside Infobox Game should be replaced with simple link.

Thanks again for your work! --binarymaster (talk) 08:19, 20 January 2018 (EST)


So happy to see the soundtracks from these game recorded! I see that you recorded both soundtracks twice on two different devices. Could you specify in the Recording section what type of output was used for each recording? Something along the lines of "Tracks starting with a 1 were recorded with X and tracks starting with a 2 were recorded with Y." Thanks for all your hard work on this site! --TheAlmightyGuru (talk) 14:54, 14 August 2018 (EDT)
