as we already have 78 issues of the wonderful mag it's getting more and more difficult to keep an overview of what has been covered yet. Further, it isn't enough to know that something has been covered but having no clue in which issue the article is in; flickering through 78 issues isn't really an option anymore, is it?
Having had some spare hours left last weekend, I started a small project: the RetroGamerDataBase. The idea behind this site is to describe the featured articles by using tags. This allows to build a large, constantly growing index that can be used for searching through the various issues.
Please feel free to take a look at the first prototype
, but keep in mind that the data included is only issue 78 as well as the functionality is still quite limited.
Before anyone asks: regarding the planed level of information offered through the RGDB, there won't be any parts of the articles themselves
on the site; the sole purpose is to create a possibility for searching articles, not reading them
next point: there is also an interface for adding tags and articles, meaning filling the database up shouldn't be that time consuming.
so, I'm waiting for your feedback
