  1. Where do you get the information from?
    This is a 100% user based database.
    We get all the information we catalogue from users who, as we, see the importance of preserving as much information as possible on everything concerning the C64 Scene.

  2. Who's responsible for this?
    We cannot take responsibility for the content of this database as all information is submitted by users.
    But if you find something you have a problem with in the database just let us know and we will take a look at it.

  3. Can I help?
    Yes! You can help this database grow by contributing information about yourself, your group, your group's releases, parties you've been to, etc. etc.

  4. I want to add some information. How do I do that?
    To add information you first of all need a CSDb account. If you don't already have one, get one here.
    Then you need to log in, and from your personal userpage you can now add information.

  5. Why do I need to register?
    Because of the amount of information we get into CSDb there is no way that we can actually check if the information is correct.
    Therefore we have to log who enters what into the database in order to spot and kick people who is filling crap into CSDb.

  6. I don't want to register. How can I add information?
    You can't!! You can try to ask some of the people who are already registered to do it for you.
    We however recommend that you register no matter what. We only need your E-mail and we will NOT abuse it for anything.

  7. I forgot my password to CSDb. What can I do?
    Click here and enter the E-mail you used when signing up for CSDb.
    Your password will then be mailed to your.

  8. Who gave you permission to include me in your stinkin database!?
    Information about who was/is a part of the scene is considered public information, so you might find yourself here if you have or had any relation to the scene. However, personal information like real name, address, phone, E-mail, photo, etc. is of course strictly personal, and you are of course in titled to remove any such, or contact the CSDb admins and we'll deal with it.

  9. I found some wrong/missing information in the database, what to do?
    To update information you need a CSDb account.
    When you are logged in with your account you can change information by clicking the Update button at the bottom of every group/scener/release/event page.

  10. What is this maintainer / "locked record" all about?
    Anyone can maintain a record in CSDb. This means that only they can edit the information for that record.
    If you want to change information in a locked record you should contact the maintainers of that record (send them a CSDb private message, or email them), and ask them to correct the information, or add you as a maintainer for that record.
    If they don't answer, or reject your request you mean you are in titled to, you can contact the CSDb admins and we'll look into it, but only then.

    Please note that you should only set yourself as a maintainer of records that are somehow related to you (your scener record, your group record(s), releases you are credited in etc.).
    And only if you really don't want others to add or update information in those records.
    You should also note that when you are maintaining a record, you have the responsibility to make sure that the information is correct and full.

  11. Someone deleted an entry. What can I do?
    If you find an entry in CSDb missing, which you know should be there, and think this is a mistake - or if you by accident deletes something yourself, you can contact the admin.
    We keep backups of all deletions, and can restore records that are deleted.

  12. I see people posting active links in CSDb, but <a href dosn't work?
    All html-tags are filtered in CSDb which means that you can not write html-codes and expect them to be parsed. However if you write an url (starting with http:// or ftp://) CSDb will automaticly convert this into a link.
    There are also some special CSDb-tags which you can use to refer to records within CSDb. Read more about that in the Usage of CSDb section.
