Entry should be deleted.
Not a scener but as he writes himself "just a gamer".

The truth is we don't need people mirroring Gamebase here. Shitloads, maybe ~95%, of his additions fall under the game category.

Have you maybe tried talking to him by PM then? I did, and he is very interested to get hints on how to use the db properly.
I find it actually a very good endeavour to cross-check gb against csdb - I guess there is quite a number of cracks there that are not listed here yet.

Why should we contact him with a PM?

My question is clear: why is he added as a scener?
I don't care if he added 342342 trillion cool & awesome releases to this database, it still doesn't make him a scener.

Make him write a scrolltext for a Crypt demo or release a 4bit digi fart demo and I'll stop whining.

M'kay?

Can someone please define what makes someone a "scener" ?

A scener is someone who takes part in scene activities, such as cracking games, creating games, tools and demos, organising and/or attending parties and maintaining BBS's.

One could debate that adding stuff to a scene database is also a scene activity.
But for me, that's on the edge. On the wrong side of it.

I was referring with that to Moloch's comment about people mirroring gb. Sorry, I should have quoted that, my fault.

One could argue that by the validation process of new accounts here there is already a connection to the scene in some way. People are not born in the scene (with some exceptions nowadays :-) , so cut him some slack.

I think he is allocated as something like a swapper.

Hi everbody
I see im causing a bit of a stir here on csdb about being a scener.
Well i dont know if i am one,but my original intention was to supply missing cracked games to csdb,so they don't end up getting lost forever just like what is happening with the spectrum and all the other computers out there.
The project that im doing now is to get most of the games that were ever made on the 8/16/32/64 bit computers and to check most of them which i have done and then share them to others.
A tall task but very much worthwhile in the end.
I don't crack games or make demos or anything like that i just thought it would be a good idea to upload cracks that csdb have not got and they would appreciate this and so i thought it would be good enough to be part of the scene.
I would like to think of myself as a "scener contributer".
I do very much like cracktro's and demo's always have done since 1988 when i got an amiga and very much admired cracking groups like unit a,rsi,bamiga sector one etc and if it were not for these guys and yourself's many teenage kids in its hay day would have missed out on many games as they could not afford the high prices for originals just like me.
I missed out on the c64 scene in its day when it kicked off as i just sold my c64 in mid 1987 and bought an amiga in 1988 and had it till 1993 and was enjoying the amiga scene instead this is why im doing all this i suppose.
I like to fill the m.i.a gap for cracked games as i like to call it for csdb.
I don't have to do this because i could finish off the c64 games twice as quick and complete my mission of getting most of all the games that were ever made on the 8/16/32/64 bit computers,but i do because i like to think im a nice guy LOL.
Anyway i hope i do not get banned if im classed as not a scener because i have got 70,000 games to sift through and there will be 1,000's of cracked games that are not on csdb im sure.
It would be a shame for everybody to miss out on the missing cracks that i have got just because of a bit of red tape.
All you guys are legends in the eyes of all the gamers out there you have made many many people very happy over the decades long may it continue.(;-)
Gaz.

The main point here is that you don't need a scener entry in the database to contribute to the site, you just need an account.

At the end of the day as long i can download & upload games from csdb im a happy chappy.
I will probably have a go at cracking games in the future when i have finished with my games project,but im just too busy right now.
