Is it allowed to submit games that I don't know the creator of? For example, dark blue, yellow star etc.

Games that are not on del-fruit nor the wiki need to be submitted by the owner/producer of the game. We will not accept games that have been submitted by an outside source. We need the creator's permission to do so. Some exceptions are made.

Edit: I should clarify that I am talking about obtaining the game - the download. Having the game itself up there with no download is fine.

Small update to the site today! (aside from all the bug reports I've been silently handling :P )

We now support "Advanced Search"! Check it out:
(click to show/hide)

You can now search by Name, Author, Rating Range, Difficulty Range, and (if you're logged in) whether or not you've cleared the game! I've added an "Advanced..." button next to the search bar at the top of every page, so you can easily access it.

If you have any other parameters you'd like to be able to search by, post your suggestions here!

P.S. We passed 350 reviews today, you guys are awesome! Keep it up!

Would be neat to have a feature where people could add the current records to game, though I'm not sure how much extra work that would be.

I was going to bring this up in the near future when we have more of the site's functionality down and more reviews come pouring in. The community has reacted wonderfully to the current features we have, and have given us a ton of ideas to improve and redesign the site.

Current records are being considered, but this is an entirely new issue that is a little harder to tackle than meets the eye. I'll see what I can do, thanks!

When people submit screenshots can we suggest that it be of the first screen, so we can get an idea of what the game is like instead of just a title screen which doesn't really show anything about the game.

First screens aren't really an indicator of a game, either. I, along with a few others, were throwing up a lot of title screens just so an image appears when that game is selected rather than the "no screenshot" image. If people would contribute more screenshots of the game, such as the first screen and beyond, then that's perfectly fine. Title cards are, in my opinion, the game at a very, very brief glance (and so there's SOMETHING).

I just think on the submit screenshot page there should be a little bit of text saying something like "please upload a screenshot that gives you an idea of what the game is like." 

I am not trying to say uploading the title is bad,  I think it should maybe be one of the shots.

Looking at this for example:
(click to show/hide)
really doesn't give you any idea what the game is

where this
(click to show/hide)
gives you an idea of what the game is like because just seeing the title I'd have no idea what sort of game it is or how to recognize it if I have seen someone play it before, but never knew the title.

If you only have a screenshot of the title handy that's fine, but I mainly think when you upload a screenshot it should say something to nudge people to upload something that shows what you can expect in the game.

Would it be appreciated or considered "spoilers" if I uploaded screenshots showing where the secrets in a game are?

You are allowed to upload any screenshots of the game, whether its the title screen, a regular screen, a secret screen, it doesn't matter. You can put in the description of your screenshot "this is a secret" or something if you'd like.

The Delicious Fruit Tag System is now live! Add tags like "Needle" "Trap" and "Miku" to games, and search by tag to easily find all games in certain genres! Read more here!

I just noticed the added "Reviews" tag on profiles, which I like. There is a problem, though...
I'll use my own Reviews page as an example.



Wouldn't it be useful to include the game name on this page, or possibly merge the Ratings and Reviews pages?

Sure, with someone like myself who's only done 3 reviews, a quick back and forth makes it clear which review is for which game, but some people like Xplayer and Para review a lot of games, so this wouldn't be viable.

EDIT: I also noticed clicking a game from a user's clear list just reloads their profile page for whatever reason?

I'm dumb :wixSanic:

Both of those should be fixed now. I'm trying to beef up the profile pages, they should be something everyone is excited to fill out and share! Any and all suggestions are welcome. Thanks for taking the time to look over it and find out that I can't code :Kappa:
