I know there are some ROM info pages here... but nothing is linked from the main page!  There's no way to start or get into the web of interlinked pages, lists, and crosslinked datafiles to start exploring.  No alphabetical list, no links from the console pages, nothing.
Someone who actually knows whats on this site please post some links of the day, or some other guide of how to get started viewing information.
:Each console page has links to lists of games for that console. You did not find this intuitive, so there is obviously something wrong with it. If you have a suggestion for a better way to set up the links either suggest it here or implement it. The main page is not currently protected. --[[User:AnyoneEB|AnyoneEB]] 22:31, 18 Oct 2005 (EDT)
:Okay, I just did a bit more catagorization and now there is a "games" link under the "consoles" link. I think that makes more sense. Do you think that fixes the problem? A link-of-the-day is certainly a good idea; Wikipedia does it. --[[User:AnyoneEB|AnyoneEB]] 22:50, 18 Oct 2005 (EDT)
::Customizing the nav bar would make site navigation considerably simpler, IMO. --[[User:Labmaster|Labmaster]] 23:35, 18 Oct 2005 (EDT)
:::Yeah, that is a bit more work with 1.4.x. I was looking into an upgrade to 1.5.x so it would easy to modify the navbar. (We certainly aren't using say the "Community Portal" link.) --[[User:AnyoneEB|AnyoneEB]] 06:46, 19 Oct 2005 (EDT)
::::I'd definitely recommend an upgrade to 1.5.x as soon as possible, I've been using it on my site since its release a couple of weeks ago and haven't had any issues with it. --[[User:Labmaster|Labmaster]] 00:42, 20 Oct 2005 (EDT)
I agree actually. Having quick links to NES and SNES platforms, for instance, would make navigation much easier. Crawling through the current navigation just seems pointless... --[[User:Gavin|Gavin]] 03:47, 19 Oct 2005 (EDT)
:I added links for each system's category pages to the main page, but I agree that it would be nicer for them to be on the navbar. --[[User:AnyoneEB|AnyoneEB]] 06:46, 19 Oct 2005 (EDT)
I definitely agree; however, is there a way to make all consoles available on the navbar without making it long and incredibly cluttered? I know NES and SNES hacking are the most popular, especially right now, however I don't think we should be overly prejudicial towards any one console.--[[User:Gau|Gau]] 07:06, 19 Oct 2005 (EDT)
 There is a discussion going on about the format of the links on this page. If you wish to make a change, please at least explain it here. --[[User:AnyoneEB|AnyoneEB]] 16:48, 19 Oct 2005 (EDT)
I have modified the system names for the original ones. --[[User:X-or|X-or]] 22:00, 26 Oct 2005 (EDT)
Someone with the IP changed the titles back without leaving a comment, he hasn't made any other changes in the site so I assume it's safe to change them back...--[[User:X-or|X-or]] 06:46, 27 Oct 2005 (EDT)

== Uploading ==
Uploading needs to be enabled. Seriously, the design of pages is god-awful, and a screenshot/box shot would spruce them up.
:Opps, it was enabled. It must have been disabled by the upgrade to 1.5.1. Yes, that was it. Fixed. --[[User:AnyoneEB|AnyoneEB]] 18:24, 5 November 2005 (EST)
== Protect Main Page? ==
Might be an idea - if a non sysop needed to make a change they could simply post a request here.
:We have not really had a problem with vandalism on the main page. If it becomes a problem, then it will be protected. --[[User:AnyoneEB|AnyoneEB]] 20:15, 19 December 2005 (EST)
== "Edit Article" ==
Could you please remove the [edit] tag that is (supposed) to be at the end of each section? I realise it can be disabled in your user profile, but the majority of FireFox users do not know this. It will look like this for most of them:
[http://img55.imageshack.us/img55/4569/pushed3zm.png Screenshot]
Now, this is hardly a useful feature - no one uses it. It would be better off if it was removed completely.
:-_- I know the edit section link CSS is bugged when there are infoboxes to the right. It would be nice if someone could figure out how to fix the CSS.
:I will see if there is some way to default those links to off instead of on. Personally, I find them useful.

== Mature Hacks Month ==
This has got to be a terrible, terrible joke. --[[User:Dan|Dan]] 14:44, 2 July 2006 (EDT)
:It was done by [[User:RyanVG|RyanVG]], so I do not think so. If you have a better idea, feel free to change it. --[[User:AnyoneEB|AnyoneEB]] 22:19, 2 July 2006 (EDT)
== Typo ==
''August is '''Utilites''' Month! Help Data Crystal collect information about hacking '''utilites''', both for individual ROMs and universal utilities that can hack any ROM!''
The word "utilit'''''i'''''es" seems to be misspelled the first and second times it is used (but not the third time). [[User:|]] 23:30, 29 August 2006 (EDT)
== It's not august anymore ==
Can someone who has the rights to change the front page choose a different 'This is the month of' message? It's no longer August, in fact it's three days from January. Thanks.
:I came here to say the same thing, maybe remove the "____ is ____ month!" thing altogether. [[User:Juggaleaux|Juggaleaux]] 01:57, 29 December 2006 (EST)
It's not January anymore. Does this site get any action anymore? Is it living up to its intention of being "the repository of all known hacking information"? I'm interested in Metroid hacking, and there is a lot of information on the web about it, but it's not on the Metroid page here, or even linked.
== Could you unlock the Main Page? ==
Could you unlock the Main Page? It's January and people are going to get tired of 12, no, 11 "It's not January anymore" posts. Also, there's evidence that you originaly allowed it to be edited, such as "Feel free to add more consoles here!" --[[User:Cat Lover|Cat Lover]] 16:17, 18 April 2007 (EDT)
== I need help with Template:PJCLink ==
It keeps making a newline after it's over and reading something like [[this]]
gets [[very]]
, ''[[very]]
'' annoying.
the fact I linked to [[:Category:Things Cat Lover is about to comtemplate commiting suicide over. *Breaks down crying* Why does this STUPID FREAKIN template keeping adding in a newline?! WHY, DOGGONEIT, WHY?! *Hits head on desk*]] (Note the difference between "comtemplate commiting" and "commit". Basicly, it means I about to think about sucide for a second, come up with the though "Nah, if I did that, everyone else in the world would win." and go on to something else.)
:You owe me $1.42 ;) Note that to link to a category you have to prefix it with a colon, or else mediawiki thinks you're assigning the page to that category. {{User:Labmaster/Signature}} 19:54, 21 April 2007 (EDT)
::By linking I mean I put it in there. I have a nasty habit of assuming that since I can understand something, everyone else can, too. :P Anyway, thank you. --[[User:Cat Lover|Cat Lover]] 18:17, 23 April 2007 (EDT)
