Ok, ok, I've misread your post. I'm sorry. But you must understand that such a move of creating a fake user on moby and uploading boxshots will not direct to us substantial traffic. Please consider this also: Abandonia and Mobygames have the same age, in other words they were founded in 1999 (of course, AB wasn't on its own hosting until at a later time), thus their chance of survival is equal. I doubt the site will be closed by outside factors, and even if it will be closed, the material will still be stored somewhere.

What I'm trying to say is that we don't gain a thing from uploading our stuff on other sites, we only lose.

Like I explained earlier to bobinator, the info you'll be submitting to moby except the release info should be written/made by yourself. In other words, don't copy-paste it from us. Neither we, nor they will be happy.

Just FYI, Abandonia reviews have been wiped out from Mobygames.

Yeah, I know. I was the one that first mentioned it on the Moby forums I also lost more than half of my MobyPoints because of that (the AB removal from Mobyranks), which I'm about to get back by contributing 2 more games full with screens etc and additional stuff.

I think their explanation was that ABs reviews are written way too subjective and that in most cases the reviewer score is not representative enough for a "moby rank". Well, this is true in some kind of way but I do really enjoy most of ABs reviews though.

Well the main reason as I understood was that our reviewers are not paid, aka not professional. And they're trying to filter only for those professional sources.

OK, then, let's ask our owners to pay us some petty cash for new reviews and problem will be solved, right?

I don't like being called an amateur after putting so much time and energy into something, regardless of is it voluntary or paid work...

But I get the point. We surely had some benefits of appearing on moby... Oh well...

They had a small argument on the thread TA started about how being Paid did not mean the review would be good, however the real point I think about being was that you were reviewing what you were told to and not just the games you love. I.e you wouldnt be giving every game a 5/5 because of childhood memories.

I don't agree with their point, since our reviews go through a lot of work before they get onsite and tend to be pretty fair (not all are though). I do see where they are coming from.
