The Homebrew Team and Staff are excited to announce the VGS debut of Homebrew Charms and the Homebrew Database! Firstly, let's talk about the database. The database is active now, but it is still in its infancy. We have tested it, and entered some NES homebrew entries into it, but this will need to be a community effort. Take a look at it. Give us some feedback, both as the user and as the member entering data into it. Make sure to enter as much data as you can. Each entry has more data then what is shown on the list view. Click one of the examples like ShmupSpeed or Neb's n' Debs to see what we are talking about. There is also a section per entry to comment and review each homebrew. Next the Homebrew Charms. We have a series of charms now available, see the list below. There are ones for both homebrew creators and homebrew collectors. Make sure to post in the signup thread to request a charm(s).

Today we're announcing a bit of a pilot project, potentially the first of many of its kind, depending on how it goes - VGS Databases! If you were a member of NintendoAge you know we had a Games database, where users entered data pertaining to games across various consoles. This is essentially the first go at something like that here on VGS. Based on how it goes and your feedback on the tools, we'll be in a good place to expand into other stuff, such as a Games database, among other things. We're pretty open to ideas for similar stuff so please feel free to let us know if there is another "list" on the site or anything like that which might be a good use case for Databases! As for this particular Database, the Retro Video Game Store DB is exactly what it sounds like. You may be familiar with the thread from NA and the one here on VGS (Thanks @Mega Tank for porting it over!), and this is that, but official and user-generated. It's got a wiki style editing process, so anyone (yes, you!) can hop in there and add a store to the list, along with the pertinent info for the store. Right now we have them categorized by country and currently limited to Canada & USA (if you live elsewhere and want to contribute just let me know and I'll add your country and region!). Inside each country is a list of provinces/states for better organization. Hop into your province/state of choice and add a store! If you think that we could use more fields (I've considered adding social media links as an option, for instance), let us know in this thread. I'm happy to make adjustments based on feedback. If you're reading this, the feature is NOW LIVE! Check the main navigation on the site for "Databases" and click "Retro Video Game Stores" to check it out, and contribute! A bit of a side note re: rules & regulations: I do want to caveat that while I can totally appreciate a good joke, note that this feature follows the same rules as the rest of the forum. Making a fake store and calling it "Cock 'n' Balls" because it's funny will both make me laugh, and hand you an official Warning on your account. We've left it quite open - you can edit anything, even stuff other people have put up, just like a wiki! But with great power yada yada - if you try to ruin the hard work of others you will find yourself being punished accordingly. Let's work together to make something cool without being dicks about it, eh? We can see who makes edits, what edits they've made, and we can roll back to previous versions. So if you think it's funny to go in and remove someone else's hard work, you'll find that the page will be restored without issue, and you will no longer be able to log into VGS.
