Question and Answers page

I've seen many users asking questions about games in the comments on a game's page. Most of these questions are never answered because that's not what the comment section is for. It would be nice if there was a place where people could submit questions and have the switchlist community answer them. This would not only allow people to get answers to their questions. It would also create a great database of questions and answers that would be very useful for switchlist users. On top of that, these questions and answers could be stored on switchlist and become search results for google searches about switch games which would then increase the traffic on the Switchlist site. I know questions can be asked on the chat, but the answers disappear so quickly that many of the Switchlist users never get to benefit from a good question and answer. This would solve that issue as well as give people a more appropriate place to submit questions to the Switchlist community increasing the chances of them getting an actual answer.

Possible release day alert bug

Mentioned this in chat but didn't see any immediate reaction, so leaving here longer term.

I had both Link's Awakening and Ni No Kuni on my wishlist. Got an email alert for Link's Awakening, but not Ni No Kuni. I wondered if this was a one-off so looked back through my collection for another time I would've had two games released on the same day. In that case I also only got one email alert. So there might be a bug preventing multiple release day alerts?

Less literal, more intersectional search?

If in the database I type "racing", Mario Kart 8 is one of the results. If I type "Mario", Mario Kart 8 is one of the results. If I type "Mario racing" I get neither, because it's looking for a game title or tag that is explicitly "Mario racing".

This also means it's currently impossible to search for games with the Action and Multiplayer tags by typing "action multiplayer" or "action, multiplayer" or anything like that.

I woukd love to add my collection and it a real labour intensive process on my phone (main access) Also sometimes you just know you want a game or two and clicking in is a pain waiting for the refresh when your are scrolling through the database. Maybe just an add dropdown menu on the left of each game with collection, wishlist or ignore.

Searching for games with accented characters

I don't know if there's a setting that could be changed in the standard search methods so games with accented characters will be returned as results for searches where people who don't type in the accented character, but alternately perhaps it could be the norm to have such titles added as non-accented tags. I see that is the case with Pokémon games, which have tags like "Pokemon Sword and Shield". There are others where this is not the case, though, like Little Dragon's Café and Röki. If the tag solution were implemented, I'd imagine an automatic search for certain characters on new game titles would catch most cases.

Shared Game Highlighting

When you click on another user's profile and view their collection, show the names of titles that are also in your collection in a different color, since yellow used for the font of games in your wish list and green is used to show games in your collection maybe blue or orange? Just as a way to determine shared games easier so you know what you can request playing together at a quick glance

Refine Searches By Allowing Exclude Words

There should be a default parameter users can use to exclude words from a search. Example:

Show what game is currently the best deal for you personally.

Maybe on the homepage or at the top of your wishlist, show what game on your wishlist is the best deal for you personally at the moment.

The way I currently do this is in an Excel spreadsheet I get the Sales Price, Lowest Sales Price, Sale Count, Avg. Days Between Sales, "Want Score" (see my other improvement - https://improveloop.com/discussion/1489). Then based on this info, I make a score out of 100% with the following formula

IF (Lowest Sales Price = Current Sales Price THEN 25 ELSE 25 * (Lowest Sales Price/Current Sales Price))
+ IF (Days Between Sales = 0 THEN 25 ELSE ((Days Between Sales / 365) * 100) / 4)
+ (Want Score * 10)

This obviously is pretty simple and can probably be made better, but I'll explain a bit of my rational.
The first line is calculating 25% of the score. If the current sales price is the lowest, then it gets a full 25%, otherwise, it subtracts the percentage difference of the lowest sales price and current sales price.
The second line calculates the next 25% of the score. If it's a pre-sale it gets a full 25%, otherwise, the score is determined by the days between sales. More days between sales gets a higher score as we want to prioritize those.
The third line is your "Want score" (out of 5) that is multiplied by 10 giving us the last 50%, because what you want is the biggest definer.

I'm sure this can be made better, but it would be really awesome to see the top 3-5 games that are the best deals for me.

"A", "The" titles no longer properly sorted

I clearly remember when the change was made to SwitchList so all the games starting with "The" wouldn't be listed together, but instead sort using the next word as is standard. BUT it no longer seems to be working this way.

Or do they have to be specifically set up differently behind the scenes? Because it seems to be newer game entries that are affected. "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" is sorted with L while "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Sequel" is sorted with T.

"Finished" Option in Addition to "Completed"

There's a difference between finishing a game and 100% completing it. It would be nice if the tick box cycles from "not played" (grey) to "finished" (red) to "completed" (green) and then back to "not played" when you click the check box on your list, to allow for a more detailed measure of how much you've played a game. There are several games in my library that I've played and moved on from, but haven't completed so it'd be nice to be able to mark them in an in-between state.

Regional pricing with all currencies and history data with quicker region switch

Would be great to see all currencies on the regional pricing screen and have buttons to convert to EUR, USD and GBP to see which region to switch to before buying. (I have to use eshop-prices.com or another app for that step now.)

It's understandable that the history section has fewer records than that upper section though so that's fine as is. Though it's quite coumbersome to have to go switch from the settings to see sale history of different regions such as US and EU so maybe a link to settings page would be good where pressing back would bring you to the price page again with one press.

Database "On Sale" strange behavior

Someone was asking about how to sort things on sale in various ways, and I was recommending doing some things with the Database. Doing so I found that the "On Sale" button didn't always work as intended. At first clicking on it correctly adds "sale" to the search. However, changing how things are sorted in any way makes the search terms disappear. But even though the search terms are disappeared, clicking the On Sale button again doesn't do anything--it only will if you hit Cancel first.

tl;dr If it's going to erase all search terms, it should automatically act like Cancel has been clicked, too.

Group sale notifications by publisher

When a publisher like Qubic has a sale on all their games, maybe post one tweet/send one email with a link to a list of their games instead of one per game.

But maybe if there were a group on sale and a new one came out of the blue it could have it's own notification.

UI / UX complete overhaul

I suggest taking a good look at iTunes, Play Store, Material Design guidelines in general.
Make the experience fun. It is currently like an old forum website.
It can, and should, be so much better.
I imagine simple buttons, FEW buttons, spaced apart, with Icons, not text everywhere.
I imagine the screen being filled with only ONE thing at a time: the item which currently requires interaction. The rest should be simplified, A LOT, and moved into a hidden menu.
This would make the app 10 times more usable, more fun, more appealing.
Also, add analytics to the GUI to see which elements the users interact with.
This will give you a picture of what's going on.
I imagine the majority of users only touch 5-10 items, out of a total of probably close to 100.

BUG: Small wishlist summary

Viewing some people with small wishlists, here's what's shown at the bottom.

"1 games in Wishlist. That is INF% of the total games released ()."

"7 games in Wishlist. That is INF% of the total games released ()."

"13 games in Wishlist. That is 1% of the total games released (1916)."

So it looks like it has a little problem when a person's wishlist rounds to less than 1%? Looking for somebody with a small collection, at the bottom it shows

"6 games in Collection. That is 0% of the total games released (1916)."

So it's not a problem everywhere.

Database "Collection" issue

Not exactly a bug, but an unintended behavior I think. In the Database you can sort things in various ways and also narrow down to things in your collection by typing in "Collection", but games that legitimately have Collection in their name also get included. Mutant Muds Collection and Mega Man Legacy Collection to name just two. Which means it's NOT really possible to narrow down to just our own games. Maybe our own games could instead be tagged with something like "MyCollection" that's extremely unlikely to show up in a title?

It seems as if many people (including myself) really had no idea how many great features Switchlist has when we first downloaded it. When I first downloaded the app, I didn't use it much because I didn't realize how many great features it had. It took me a few months before I revisited the app and really looked at what Switchlist could do. The number of people that download the app and then delete (or just don't use) after a short time might be decreased if a tutorial that highlights the many functions of the app is provided when the app is first downloaded. I for one would have benefited from this and probably would have used the app more when I first downloaded it.

Full database results for front page search

As is right now the site/app starts you in the Upcoming section. Using the search there will only return results currently in that section, unless there are zero. This seems to be one of the more confusing things for people unfamiliar with it, as we occasionally see in chat people wondering why something isn't there. It feels inconsistent that one can search for "Mario" and only get an unreleased 2019 game, but search for "Diablo" and get last year's release. I'd suggest _always_ having the Database Results section showing underneath the regular results for Recent/Upcoming/Announced. Or maybe at least once a certain number of characters has been entered (2? 3?), since having hundreds of results showing there wouldn't be so friendly either.

Add text notes to individual games on lists

We can add games to collection/wishlist/custom lists and write descriptions of the list as a whole for the last group, but it would be good to have notes for individual entries. For Collection one might keep track of where they got the game, or if it's an import copy, or they have two copies, whatever. For custom lists sometimes an explanation of why something makes the list is good, or maybe why it's an edge case that almost doesn't make the list. For my list of grid-based battle tactics games, I'd make a note for games that are on a hex grid rather than a square grid. For a list of PS1->Switch games, maybe a note for a game that is itself a collection, about which games were PS1 to begin with.

I was just able to purchase Stardew Valley off the Mexican eshop for half the price that it is in the US by just changing my account region. I am also aware that Japan sometimes gets game releases earlier than we do here in the US and even get some exclusive games that you can't purchase in the US.

SUGGESTIONS: "Physical" vs. "Digital" vs. "All" Database Filter, Pricing Data Change...

While importing my wishlist by hand, I noticed that some games were described as "physical" in the Database, but others weren't. This got me thinking:

10.) Are the games in your database differentiated by Physical vs Digital? Or are all games titles listed once in the database, and if there are both physical & digital copies the game specs will note that? My suggestion is to have it the second way for simplicity, but offer a toggle so we can filter the Database by Physical/Digita/All.

11.) But then this brings up another issue regarding pricing. Are the prices listed in Switch List only the eShop price of the game (even though there are game listings marked "Physical")? If this is the case, then the price alerts sent by Switch List would only take into account eShop pricing (and not physical pricing at Amazon, Best Buy, Target, Walmart, etc)? I also assume pricing does not take into account physical game short-runs from Limited Run Games and other similar companies? The reason I ask is because as a collector, I prefer to collect physical games (and only buy digital if the game does not exist in physical version). The pricing information your app uses will affect the way I use your app's price alert system.

If you would like to brainstorm ways to solve these issues and/or implement these (or my previous) suggestions in your app, just email me. I have a few ideas, but won't bore everyone with the details here...

SUGGESTIONS: Create way to record multiple game editions, DLC, downlad/email feature, more user avatars...,

1.) Please add a way to record multiple copies of games in user's Game List.

2.) Please add a way to notate what copies they are (i.e. Standard, Limited Edition, Collector's Edition, International Version, etc).

3.) Please add a way to see what DLC is available for each game in database (if not available yet) and way to record which DLC you purchased for each game in your game list (can be as easy as a check box by each available DLC in the game).

4.) Please add a way to download/email your Game Collection List and Wishlist (preferably in CSV or other compatible Excel format).

5.) I just thought of this... please add a way for Pro users to upload our own avatars in the app, or add more avatars from popular AAA and indie Switch games.

Desired Price for Sale Alerts

Add an option to only be notified of a sale if it is at the target price that you specify. This would also be a good way to track how much I'm willing to pay for a game. Idea inspired by camelcamelcamel.com alerts.

"Add to List" should be more accessible

Currently the process of adding games to a list is slow as you have to search for a game, click on the game, click on "Add to List", and then choose the list. The first step obviously can't be taken out but it'd be nice to have a button when viewing a list of games to add to a list. Similar to how the "Complete" and "Mark as Playing" buttons appear on My Games page, there could be another button (+) that shows a pop up with all of your lists and allows adding to it easily. Look at grouvee.com for an example on how easy it is to add to a list.

Nintendo Labo

Sorry for the back to back submissions, however the Nintendo Labo Toy-Cons have yet to be added to the database (unless there's a qualification for games to be on the database I'm not aware of).

Link to profile from collections/etc.

I've just noticed that when sharing a collection URL, anybody will be able to see the list and the username attached to it--but there's no direct way to get to that person's profile to view extended information. They'd need to go to the Members section and type the username in. Making it more direct would feel more cohesive.

Chat log

When chat is active it doesn't take too long for things to scroll to oblivion, so someone returning after several hours might miss a useful response. Would be good to have a place to look that could be counted on to save at least a record of the last day or two.

Consolidate sale emails into one

Right now, you get an email for every single game on your wishlist that is on sale. It would better if you got a single email with a list of all of the games that are on sale at once, periodically.

Top Games Under $ Amount

Under top game section, have list of top games in $20/15/10 categories, or allow the user to put in a dollar amount and show them the top games
Also the ability to only show indies, vs all would be nice

Community Lists

Allow users to make public lists that can be added to by others. Example, 2D Zelda-like Games. Anyone can add a game, and people can vote on how well they think it matches the list. Rank based on votes.
