Oh, it's just a way for us to find certain releases and reduce the amount of offers that are on the FTP. It might help for newcomers and those that are searching for certain builds (like 98 build 2017).

Wow, that’s so cool! It may be useful for those who wants to contribute but they don’t have FTP Access yet.

That is so cool! Can't wait to see it! I think it's a good place for latest FTP files I guess.

This is really cool! I do have to agree that it can help with finding releases a lot faster.

OMG this seems to be huge, i mean, it helps a lot, especially the new members to see if we already have a version of certain software.

Nice update. Would definitely benefit from a graphical archive index.

Very nice addition,
thank you Andy for this.
It definitely will save time in not having to log-in to the FTP to see if a app, etc. is available.

Really would appreciate this addition. Quick question: Will you still need FTP access to use this feature?

FTP access won't be required to view it.

Wow, that's so cool! Can't wait to see it! This makes it easier for newcomers to find out if the beta or abandonware they want to offer is already on the FTP.

That would be useful so that I can either check if we have that particular item on the ftp (at 2 am for some reason :P ), or so that I can check the ftp log without mobile chrome crashing up on me due to the topic length ^^ . How long will the new database approximately take, and would it be freely and publicly available or only to registered users?

It's under construction. We hope to have it released soon, but donators can get early access to the alpha right now.

Got my interest with this. I just donated to see it in early access, regardless that it'll be free in a while. :P

One suggestion might be to add the file type that a certain item is, so we know which is an ISO or MDF or BIN/CUE.

I want to ask, why don't you include a thumbnail of the disc/artwork in the release? That way one could see the differences and similarities with a current disc. E.g. I have an Win2000 disc, and I search it and found it on the database, but I note that the CD thumb in the database is different to my CD, so that would mean I have a different release, perfect fot the FTP

A gallery function will be added later. It's a lot of extra work and at the moment we focus on getting the basics of the database working correctly before we start adding new features.

That would be super awesome. I'm a new user, just registered last night in-fact. I'm excited to contribute but not sure if I even have anything you guys could use. A resource like that could help make it super clear to me and any other newboys what we can add.
