Some entries have the dumper of the ROM under "author" and some have it under "comment". Where is the correct place to name the dumper?
C. V. Reynolds @ 2016-01-27 15:17:11

"Author" would be correct, I do believe.

Which entries have it under "comment", if you would please tell me?
Hiccup @ 2016-01-28 10:42:35

A load of 3DS (DLC) ones and maybe some 3DS ones, if I remember correctly.

This is done onmany games and not only on 3ds and 3ds DLC , but also NDS games.
Retrogamer do also this way .

When you use author a dumper will not see his name , because you need to be logged in the site.
When you put comment dumped by dumper , they will see that , no need for loggin in the site and dumper is also happy.
Hiccup @ 2016-01-29 02:09:34

Okay. I will put dumper in Comment and entry creator in Author.
C. V. Reynolds @ 2016-01-29 22:02:14

Please put the dumper under "author" in the SNES section, because that's how it's done there. Otherwise I'll have to go behind you and change it. You can put it in comment as well if you'd like, however.

Thank you.

One more thing (the edit post isn't working well at the moment):

The Datomatic's "Trophy Room" uses the "author" section when listing the number of dumps as well. This suggests "author" is correct for listing the dumper regardless.

The Datomatic also automatically records the one who inserts the information regardless of who is entered as author (under "submitter").
Hiccup @ 2016-01-30 02:56:59

Ah yes. Good idea - I'll put it in author and comment. I guess it is okay to do that in all sections?
jimmsu @ 2016-01-30 08:48:44

Yep , C. V. Reynolds that is right only add to author.

Comment is not needed , and will delete al those.

I did get that problem with adding redumps , then name is not recognized and you can only add the dumper name to comment.

we decided to show authors only to logged users and not to public. telling around you pirated something is never a smart idea.
dom loads the "author" field for the "throphy room" and redumpers should be trusted people, to add them as authors they need to be registered nicks in dom db. just ask me via pm and I will add their nicks.
xuom2 @ 2016-01-30 11:15:37

nicks removed from comments and moved to author. added more nicks to db.
done on 3ds, 3ds dlc and nds
