    we do NOT follow other peoples numbering systems anymore
    if it wasnt for gonline then we wouldnt even list releases with numbers
    it's not going to hurt anyone that the numbering on this is different from "other sites"

    Yea the numbers are all fucked up and thair is little point anymore.

    This site realy is the best site for relese info (And that has alot to do with the forums atleast being half way decent) and I think this site should just drop the numbers like the No-Intro DAT project has.

    Screw GB ADVANsCEne and PocketHeaven. Let them fight about the numbers if they want [​IMG]

    The release numbering is really irritating now - I just use No-Intro and forgo it all together. [​IMG]

    Its always nice to know how many ROMs there are, but only for statistics purposes.

    Numbers are irrelevant, apart from those annoying people who categorize by release number instead of Alphabetically [​IMG]

    It's really annoying when searching for roms and getting different results.

    well that's tough to be honest
    why people feel the need to search by number when they can search by name is beyond me

    lol here we go again

    don't you think that things would be much quicker/easier if the roms were numbered the same? I know that there's nothing I can do about it but I don't see any logic in doing this.
    I don't think I need to post an example of this [​IMG]

    how people choose to name their roms on their fserv is UP TO THEM
    i'm sure as hell not going to tell anyone how they should have files named on their pc
    we are not the only site with different numbering
    advance power and advanscene have used different numbering for months and their have been no complaints
    no intro have even stopped using numbers in their main dat which i believe is probably the best way to go
    like i have said before if it wasnt for gonline then we would not be using numbers on the site at all
    also we are NOT forcing you to follow our numbering system so i really cant see the problem

    I have the problem that everytime that I search a game I cannot select it to view the details, while in the general list I can select it.
