I'm trying to add a more complete listing of gaming magazine through the change request system.

And I'm getting turned down due to the belief that gaming magazines shouldn't be in the database by a certain approver.

Except that gaming magazines are ALREADY in the database. Nintendo Power and Game Informer are already in there with PLENTY of issues already approved.

If the decision has already been made to allow gaming magazines, then that decision should be across the board. Not to pick and choose what titles are okay and what titles aren't. In the end, all that does is create incomplete listings (which I was trying to fix). And then nobody is happy on either side of it.

The ones that are already in shouldn't be. It was wrong to add them. Adding more wrong items is not the answer to fixing the problem. Perhaps when the in-work updates are finished it will become a moot point.



The following stores are all stores that I've dealt with or have become friends with through the forums and I highly recommend them all.

Can't say the argument that they shouldn't be there is wrong. I'm just saying that if they're there already, let's at least have some more complete listings. It's like having Green Lantern in the database, but not Green Lantern Corps. It drives me nuts that some of my collection is catalogued, but not all of it.

And where does that leave magazines like Fangoria and Starlog, then?

Magazines like Fangoria and Starlog shouldn't be in the DB either. Or Angel, Buffy, Supernatural, X-Files, etc.

That.

No one has said anything remotely close to "some Gaming Magazines okay but others aren't."

And it's not "a certain approver" keeping them from being added. It's all of them since any one could make the approval, yet none has. And there are multiple NO votes and comments from approvers in the CRs that they don't believe gaming magazines are an appropriate addition.

We are aware that some collectors and sellers want CCL to be like a flea market and whatever they happen to collect should be allowed in, but that's just not what CCL is about. Steve (The_Valiant_One) recently addressed this in a post:

Here's a list of 9 things you'll never see us catalog with CCL as long as I draw breathe:

A)Sports Cards
B)Beanie Babies
C)Pogs
D)Happy Meal Toys
E)99% of Barbie Dolls
F)Boyd Bears
G)Precious Moments
H)Longaberger Baskets
I)NASCAR

Everything else I'm open to, but again, we're not going to add it just to say we have it.

The fact that we've done something wrong in the past is not justification for continuing to do it wrong, or for doing it wrong again.

If you don't learn from your mistakes, you'll just keep making them.
