Snipping a quote is a little awkward at the moment. If I try to select a part of a quote and accidentally scroll outside of the area, it nabs everything above the quote box as well (usually the "Poster X says:" portion of the post) and then I have to try again. It's particularly annoying because if I'm selecting a long segment it's very hard to stop the scroll in time.

Also, a little suggestion, there should be a way to automatically select anything within a quote box or table. Say double-click a box in the upper lefthand corner.

Any chance on a better way to add older games to your collection? For new games the current search (though annoying with it's constant clearing of what you type) kinda works fine. BTW, whoever started adding/fixed missing games, Thanks!

Anyway, some oldish or really old games are really hard to search for and find in the limited popup. Only after doing some digging and live html editing was I able to add http://www.vgchartz.com/game/26601/nobunagas-ambition/ to my collection. I would rather not have to do that for every single told game I own. Can we get an Add to Collection page that when you search shows every single match, paginated if necessary?

Also some console do not show up on the gamrConnect - My Games console dropdown. Genesis, SNES, NES, PSV, GB, GBC, and probably others.

That lookup sucks, I know - I've hated it for the longest time. I tweaked it awhile ago (it was actually worse, if you can believe that) just to get it functional, but yeah, I know there are problems with it. It's just a large undertaking, and I don't currently have the time to invest in it...    ...that said, you can also add games to your collection just by going to the game page you're interested in. That "Community Stats" box in the left column allows for adding (wish list, tracking, etc.) as well. Again - I know it's not ideal, but it does work!

Didn't know about the Community Stats box having that function.  That at least lets me add games without using my 'hack'.  Thanks!

Hi Talon,

I think the scroll bar is no longer anchored to the bottom of the header.  It's hidden behind it until I scroll down.

Hidden Scroll Bar at top of page

Scroll Bar after scrolling down a bit.

Happens on all forum pages.


I also just noticed I am getting double scroll bars on some pages (Articles and Charts).

I don't believe the scrollbar going behind the top header, is new - as best I can tell, it's always done that. I'll have to do some digging on this, but it'll be a low priority.

As for the double scrollbars, I've been doing a great deal of clean-up on the profile pages (for "dark" and "blue" themes), so it's quite possible I caused this - however, I can't seem to duplicate, so I'm curious whether the issue has already been resolved or not...?



Ehm i can confirm it is new that it is behind the blue top bar, noticed it the other day aswell on FF win 7

edit: clarifying"new" last few months i suppose dont use firefox that often

I've also been noticing that recently, but I can't recall how it was before.


(I'm using the normal theme, also Firefox.)



I guess since most "normal" people scroll with either a mouse wheel or a touch screen, I just never noticed if/when that bar might have started sliding up into the header...



Well, I made an adjustment so the scrollbar stops going above the header - but I'm telling you guys, based on the changes I had to make in order to adjust this, there is NO WAY this started happening recently. This has been like this, ever since we moved to the "responsive" layout. I just don't think that many people actually use scrollbars anymore, so who would actually notice???

...of course, once it's pointed out by somebody - you can't take your eyes off of it.
