Is it just me or is the Game Sales portion of the site acting weird? It will organize things by best selling but then after a few entries it will show up titles that are not where they should be. Is something wrong with my options? I included them in the screenshot just to make sure it wasn't the options enabled.

Dunno - it seems to sort correctly for me. How are you displaying that? Are you going to the Game Search page and then selecting PS2 from the Console drop-down? Can you post the URL?

Never mind - I think you're going here: http://www.vgchartz.com/gamedb/games.php?console=PS2

This is due to some of the changes that are coming with the new "shipped" totals. Just click that "Total Sales" heading, and it will sort correctly...

 

 

 



Why do "Total Sales" say "N/A" for most of the games though?

Same as the previous issue - this is due to some changes that are coming, right around the corner. There was no good way to separate out the changes, so just hang with us for another week or two. All will be revealed soon enough...

 

 



After opening up the thread for the Switch sales predictions I realize that I voted in that poll but have no idea what I voted. I kept seeing recently that polls inside threads are linked to USER ID. Would be a cool trick to give you a small check by the option you picked, or change the color of the font of that option. It might even take effect retroactively on all past polls. Not a thing that anybody needs to get to, but it would be cool.

I like it!!!

I did it!!!  ;)

 

...note - this will **only** show on "Forum Generated" polls - it will NOT show for "Poll of the Week" polls.

 

Edit: Ok - this will also work on PoTW polls, too but ONLY within the actual thread for a given PoTW (NOT the front page). Just know that if your IP Address is dynamically changing and you're voting multiple times on a given poll (ya cheeky bastard!), it will only identify your first vote as the "selected" vote.

Dude!  That is awesome.  Thanks!  Now I know that I picked the Switch to sell 80-100 Million in that poll.  Glad to see I'll end up being on the right side of history.  Now I want to go check out all the other polls I voted in over the years.  I'm sure my track record won't be so good.

@TalonMan
Just wanted to notify you of a bug that probably is insignificant, but maybe it's worth pointing out.
When I clicked Quote to reply to this post here: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8973416
I noticed that my Dark Theme was gone as everything became white again. Apparently I had been logged out. Which happens. But what I've never seen before is that in the message box where I was going to type up my reply, there wasn't just a quote of the post I replied to. There were about 20-30 quoted posts, as if I had hit the Multi-quote button on all of them.

But I had never seen any of those posts before (except the bottom one, which was the one I replied to). They were certainly not from that topic, and I don't even recognize any of the people's names. Not sure if they are recent posts or several years old, but it got me thinking that perhaps this could cause certain posts that are not supposed to be viewable to appear.
I have no idea, and it'll probably not cause any issues, but I thought I'd mention it just in case.
