Question Swedish database is a mess - please advise

Hi!

It seems that someone for some reason tagged almost 300 games as "boardgame" in the Swedish translation of the database. Meanwhile, the other tags have hardly been used at all. Is there a quick way of simply importing tags from, say, the English version of the database? Is this a problem at all? What, if anything, should be done?

None I know of. In theory the site should use same tags as in English version. In practice - as you can see - it doesn't.

Incorrect / missing tags are always a problem.

You've got me there - the only thing I can advise is manually remove the wrong tags and hope they don't get mixed up by accident - on a few occasions I've seen games spontaneously lose or gain tags. :notrust:

That goes for all the german stuff.

But I think there are "building sites" that are superior to the translations. These are... cosmetics. We should get the english version running first. :thumbs:

Still: Thanks for pointing that out.

Thanks for the replies! Which versions are the "building sites" and which are translations? Is the English site considered the original abandonia or is that the Croatian one?

I'm not sure if Croatian version was up before the English one or not, but I'm pretty sure English version has been the primary one for several years.
