(SegaNet) Flag for Sega MegaNet titles is misleading and/or wrong.

SegaNet was an online network service for Dreamcast/Saturn

MegaNet was an online network service for MegaDrive
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sega_Meganet

I'd propose changing all the (SegaNet) flags to (MegaNet). Or alternatively, (Sega MegaNet) if you're OK with the spaces.

There was a discussion about this, things were never corrected, but your advice seems correct. Wikipedia might not be "the truth" but it's right here.

I never found some official document that the service was called "MegaNet".

http://sega.jp/archive/segahard/md/modem.html doesn't say MegaNet

On the box you can see "Sega Net Work System" (http://dump.megadrive.org/dump/md/Game%20Toshokan%20(Japan)%20(Rev%20A)%20(Program)/box_top.png).

SegaNet is just because that is what's in the header.
The actual name of the Mega Modem game download service was "Game Toshokan" (Game Library)

That's why I think that "Seganet" is the best name.
I close this discussion.
