Posted under RFG Thanks, Submissions, Thanks, May 2012

Holy Submissions Batman!
May 2012 was a truly astonishing month for submissions, there were 15,045 total submissions in May, yes you read that right, its over FIFTEEN THOUSAND! To put that in perspective, that's about five times the average submissions each month. And with that huge number of submissions, it also means that we have set a new record for most submissions in one month. The record was last set in October 2011 when we had 12,524 submissions.
Now you're probably wondering why we had such a huge number of submissions this month. Well, I'm not too sure, but I think it may have something to do with the PAIN YOURSELF WITH SUBMISSIONS CONTEST going on right now. If you don't know what that's all about, you should probably check out the front page more often, its been going on since April 28th and will end on June 8th, so there is still some time to get your submissions and potentially win the contest! And yes, it is still possible to win at this stage of the contest, everyone loves a come-from-behind win at the last moment.

So you probably want to know who has been busting their humps make those 15,000 submissions in just 31 days. I'll tell you, its certainly not a short list, almost 70 people have contributed over the month to reach this record setting month of submissions. Some people made just one submission and others like Crabmaster2000 made 6234 submissions.
Crabmaster2000, of course, is the top submitter for May and rounding out the rest of the Top 10 we have Aeroc, disloyalhead, Tynstar, raffa1985, NES_Rules, nupoile, CoinCollector, blcklblskt, and Sirgin.
And of course, to review those 15,000 submissions we have our dedicated staff members to approve those things, and let me tell you, it was a ton of work reviewing that many submissions. It was not uncommon for there to be 500-1000 submissions in queue at a time because they were simply coming in faster than we could look at them. Tynstar was the biggest contributor in getting those submission reviewed with 5181 approvals. Other top reviewers were NES_Rules, Paully34333, Shadow Kisuragi, ApolloBoy, and OatBob.
So a great big Thanks goes out to all the submitters and reviewers this month for making May 2012 the best month ever for RF Generation in submissions.

But wait, there's more! I know what you're thinking, "OK, there were 15,000 submissions, but what were they?" well, I'll tell you what the majority of them were. And they weren't just simple page edits filling in Release Types, which while incredibly important, is not all that fascinating to look at. Instead, the vast majority of these submissions were images! In particular, screenshots. Over 10,000 screenshots and 1,000 scans were added to the DB over the course of May. These screenshots covered everything from NES to Wii, from North America to Japan and Europe, just about every section got some new images.

Thanks again to everyone who has contributed in May and in the past. If you haven't contributed, what are you waiting for? There's still time to win the contest and help out THE Classic and Modern Video Game Database! Maybe we can break the record again in June?!

Well, it's that time of year where things are starting to wind down here at work, which allows me to devote more time towards RFGeneration. This is my first year as Director here at the site, and I'd like to start digging my claws into things that I've noticed that are broken, need maintenance, or are just plain missing.

However, there are many things that I'm unaware of, and I'd like the community as a whole to let me know what you'd like to see fixed or added in the next couple months here:

I'll keep a running list of things I've fixed, as well as any outstanding items on that thread.

April has come and gone and it's fallen on me this month to thank the community for making Android Generation THE best Android collecting site on the web!

Whats that, were back to RFGeneration now? OMG what a relief. I dont know how much longer I could feign interest in Androids Tongue

Even with that little hiccup in there April was a solid month for submissions. There were a whopping 9 members that exceeded 100 submissions each and an even more astounding 77 different members who made individual submissions. Thats a lot of different people contributing. Every little one helps make the database that much more complete.

No one could touch raffa1985 for April though. He was head and shoulders beyond the competition. Not that it was a competition. Speaking of competition..... we are smack in the middle of a submission contest for the entire month of May and the first week of June. Last years champion aeorc is already pushing his way to the head of the pack, but we may have a new victor this year. blcklblskt is well on his way with nearly 100 more submissions than his rival. Don't let these guys take it to easily though. Help make sure they at least earn their prize!

To keep tabs on your progress (and spy on the the others) just click the SUBMIT tab at the top of the page and look for submissions stats. So keep at it and make those staff members in charge of approvals earn their keep this month.
