So, I created https://lutris.net/games/cultist-simulator/ earlier, which runs on the “big 3” PC OSses, and I followed the bold red warning in the submission form to not even mention any non-linux platform if there’s a native version, a decision I personally disagree with btw, but nevertheless added ONLY the “Linux” tag.
Now I got an automated E-Mail from the website telling me it’s been accepted, just to see some
moron replaced the “Linux” tag by a “Windows” one, probably after a single glance at their horribly outdated website, even though both Steam and GOG already sell the (working; i played it) native version.
this means I had to suggest a change to a game I just submitted myself to restore the information some moderator thought they were “fixing”.
I therefore strongly suggest all of the following:
- not changing random information without people’s notice (usually there’s a reason the information is there)
- devising a way for admins/mods/whoever’s doing such stuff to actually contact the suggesting person instead of having the website send an automated email that doesn’t even mention the changes made
- devising a way to log changes like this to be able to actually see who updated (or butchered, in some cases, as we see) what information for what reason and to be able to, if required, apply points 1 and/or 2 if they have been mistaking it.
