I've been granted the privilege to edit track's names

Big, big thanks to Jace and the TG community for supporting me on my request. A few minutes ago I saw a small pencil icon next to a track I was about to submit to and I was very happy when I hovered my mouse over it and it said "edit title".

I won't start editing tracks just now, I want to iron out a few details first, the most important is, should I keep a log of the edits on my wall or on the site's wiki? Maybe the community can chime in on this or maybe Jace will send me a message to specify the way this should be done. I've never used the wiki page so if I need to log the edits there, it would take me a moment to get familiar with that.

I still can't edit game's names and I don't know if that's coming later or not, but if not, that's completely fine, I'm very happy with this new privilege that has been granted to me and I will try my absolute best to help the site.

Again, thanks to all of you for your support and please use this wall post to write down your suggestions and requests about tracks that need corrections. You can also send me a private message or tag me if you need help.

    Congrats Daniel

    See if you change the title of one of my very first track founding.

    It's MAME's BattleZone and I've made a mistake in the title.

    I accidentally mixed the title with the rules..lol

    Current title: "Extreme rule - one life only ! no extra lives. You die once and that's your score. "

    Should be changed to: "One Life Only!"

    Good Luck!

    in theory wiki is the best, but i'm not sure how often people check that. i'd actually suggest a forum post, hopefully admin will stick it, and if you're feeling really ambisiouts also make a wiki page that the forums post references

    If you are going to keep a log, please use the Wiki.

    The Wiki will become more and more important over time in general.

    Generally speaking, Ii’s the best way to store any TG historical information that is not part of an adjudication or dispute thread...

    Thank you and the community for helping to continue to improve TG!

    Hi Doron, thanks for kicking this off, the track has been edited. The track with the red frame is the old one and the green is the new one. I will enter this in the wiki tonight when I come back from work.

    Hey Daniel,

    When you get the availability to edit game titles please do this one.

    https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/impossible-mission-ii/atari-7800

    It’s been bugging me for 5 years, I did raise somewhere but nothing came of it.

    There is NO Impossible Mission II, it’s just Impossible Mission

    Hey guys I've been looking at the wiki and I think I can start logging the edits there, the problem I see with this is that anybody can edit or even completely delete the entries there. I don't think the active members would do this (maybe accidentally) but let's not forget that ocasionally trolls create accounts to mess with the site and my fear is that one of those people would just completely delete what I post there.

    I noticed that the historical entries cannot be edited but they still can be deleted. I think I'll create the page there and I will keep the screenshots of the edits on my computer as well just in case.

    Due to your special access change, you had some wiki privileges that others did not. That is why you think others can delete and such.

    We have adjusted everything back to normal for you, with the exception that you have the ability to protect your page from edits. Please just look for that option.

    Sounds great, thanks Jace. I still see the option to delete pages, of course I'm not going to delete anything, but if you can adjust that, it'll be great.

    One last question, should I create the log under the Historical area or the System area?

    yes you have the ability to delete pages but they are not permanently deleted you can only soft delete them

    Congrats Daniel, that's awesome. Good for you..... ;-)

    I have a request to change a track name on the Intellivision Platform. The game is Space Armada. It says NTSC / PAL - Default Settings. Yes the dreaded Default Settings.... This should say NTSC/PAL - Game Mode. We need to be more precise and get away from 'Player's Choice' and 'Default Settings'..... Everyone playing modern day has played the game on 'Game Mode'. The other entries are well over 10 years old from back in the day and they don't have videos or submission links to check and those 4 scores are all under 25k.

    I want to open up a 2nd track for just Practice Mode, but first I need the Default Settings changed to NTSC/PAL - Game Mode, then I will add the track for NTSC/PAL - Practice Mode.

    Here's the link.

    Thanks for your help and let me know if you have any questions.

    Hi @Jace Hall I have created the wiki page but it won't let me edit it.

    https://www.twingalaxies.com/wiki_index.php?title=Historical:List-of-tracks-names-that-have-been-edited-by-Pixe-Sukola

    it says that this page can only be modified by admins. I can no longer see the "delete page" option, so maybe that had something to do with it.

    Here is a list of the first ten tracks I have edited for the game Luxor: Pharaoh's Challenge. As per @Barthax suggestion, I left the "1 player" in the names. I corrected the game mode from Endless Mode to Endless Tomb which is the correct name and "Casual Mode" to "Casual Adventure", also fixed several names like "Balance of Meat" to "Balance of Maat", etc.

    Hi Rick, thanks.

    I would happily help you edit this track but, it looks to me like it has been decided by admin staff that both modes are being accepted for this particular track acording to the adittional info in the rules section. If you can get the approval of Jace, I will gladly edit the name.

    @Jace Hall

    Hi Jace, can I get your approval to have the Space Armada (on the Intellivision platform) changed to just say NTSC/PAL-Game Mode so I can setup another track for just Practice Mode? Having them both combined into one Track doesn't work they should be broken out.

    There are already accepted scores on this track and unfortunately it is impossible to know which score was set under which mode...

    This is why the track cannot be changed.

    You can set up a new track for just Practice Mode exclusively, if that does not exist yet, but that can not have any impact on the already established current track and its associated data....

    Hi Daniel,

    Thanks for stepping up and taking on this task. This request is for specifically for Gran Turismo 2 but will likely impact a few more games from this series. The word 'Licence' is used in leaderboards for both PAL and NTSC version of the game. However, the NTSC version should use 'License' as the proper spelling. For all the applicable NTSC leaderboards, please replace 'Licence' with 'License'.


    Screen shots that support my request:

    PAL Version of Gran Turismo 2 (Licence Menu)


    NTSC Version of Gran Turismo 2 (License Menu)


    Below are all the impacted leaderboards / tracks for Gran Turismo 2. While these updates can be done individual, it might be more efficient if TG Admin can assist by using queries to isolate the leaderboards impacted and than perform a find (Licence) and replace (License).
