16 2 1998-12-01 13:40:51 You may have noticed that new additions to the database are now announced with a green-headed news item, and some updates are announced with a yellow-headed news item.<br> I can't decide if I like this or not. It seems a little redundant considering the <b>Recent additions</b> and <b>Recent updates</b> lists are right here on the same page, but I thought I'd give it a try. The update announcements allow you to see what has changed, anyway.<br> If you've got an opinion about this, or anything else, for that matter, <a href="">let me know</a>. Hundreds of you have registered for Game Tome accounts, but only 4 (that's right. Four.) of you have given me any feedback. I can make the Game Tome better if you tell me what you want. Do you like the changes? default
