By the way, I think that I slightly underrated Shoot/Beat 'em up category - looks like it's much more useful than it seemed to me first.
Also, thanks for adding visual novel category, I'll post few games soon.

There is a big problem to make it possible for all users to submit changes. the current implementation of the image upload procedure prohibits the possibility to use drupals build-in revision system.
With the revisions all users would just post "changes" to the current game page that could be easily redone by moderators.
That said, it will take some time before this can be implemented. Not expecting that situation i'm very unhappy :(

Some changes will require a lot of work (database structure changes, etc.), but I truly believe it is worth to do it.

Ok. I hope it won't become a problem, if there will be lots of updates.

Wow, thats a hell of a mess thanks for the heads up! Never looked at the preview page before *what a shame*

The banner category for the images is not working, and i have no clue why cause the other categories get saved without any problems, it will be removed.

No it's not possible.
But you could post a feedback message on the specific game page.

Game: Hedgewars

If you liked original Worms this one is a must play, IMO. Nice graphics (some screenshots here are outdated), lots of weapons/hats/themes/maps, random map generator. It still lacks some features of original game, but it is actively developed and polished (on the other hand, original game lacks some features Hedgewars do have). The only weak point is already mentioned AI (in fact, the main problem is that it uses only small amount of weapons; also, when firing a gun it [almost] never misses). However, there are always enough people online to play with.

As a Worms fan, I'll give it 9/10.
