Yeah - I've been thinking on this, as the GameDB approval system is over 10yrs old at this point and could use a bit of a revamp. At the very least, we could implement a "reputation" type of system - somebody that's been on the site a long time, or has a large number of forum posts, or a high rate of comment approval, or some combination of these and others - allow people with high reputations the ability to approve their own updates, or even direct updates to the database and bypassing the queue system altogether...
...it's on my mind - just a lot on my plate at the moment.
would it be possible to create a log so those select people can update the database. but the admins can at a time convenient to them reference the log to look for those edits and take any further action if needed.
