Note: I ended up making a new list. Moderators can feel free to delete this, unless you feel it could be of use to the web design crew.

I was editing a list of mine today and failed to notice that it was at 100 items. The thing is, you're only allowed 100 items max with ordered lists and yet the list saved with 101 items on it. Now that I am beyond the allowed item quantity, the list will not let me save anymore, even when I remove several items. I would love some assistance with this, as remaking the list would put it out of order on the "list of lists".

List in question.

Windows 7 64-bit & Firefox 31 were in use at the time.

I used to be subbed yet cancelled after two years. They did not send me a warning message to remind me that my subscription was soon to auto-renew and my credit card was charged at a time when I had limited funds. It all worked out in the end, but that was rather irksome.

At the moment, I am only interested in retro gaming videos, so any exclusive content would have to include some quality stuff there. Hopefully without too much comparisons to modern gaming, as that's not all that relevant or helpful. Still... There are many people already doing this on sites like YouTube, so perhaps it would be best to do retro streaming sessions featuring old classics. Special guest stars would be wonderful. Not necessarily celebrities, but Known YouTube reviewers or even quality members of the site. I would love to see more historical bits with special guests that played a part in gaming history.

All the same, I am not very interested in anything the site features other than the user lists functon and the "wiki-like" pages.

PC would be the most played, followed by the PS3. Yet, this is only because you are not including older generation systems. If you had, the Sega Genesis & Dreamcast would be contenders for first place.

I rather enjoyed "Phantasy Star III: Generations of Doom".

Mario games are truly great, but to be honest I'm simply tired of Mario. It's a shame, but what can I do, but wait it out if I'm bored of a character or franchise?

I won't comment on systems that I've never owned or played more than 1 minute on, so Virtual Boy is out. From the systems that I personally owned, I would choose the Atari Lynx (Model 2) followed by the Game Gear. Those two had next to no games that interested me, and seemed too primitive by the time they saw release. (I was busy with Genesis/SNES & DOS games at the time.) Battery life is of little consequence to me, given that I tended to use battery packs or simply play around the house. (I can barely make out what's on a screen in sunlight anyways.) Having said this, I actually didn't mind those two portable systems that much.

If people are living fine with 1080p on small 15" laptop screens, I don't see why 1080p would be bad on a 32" TV. It's never been an issue with my 32" 1080p HDTV, but I got mine 4 years ago when 1080p was more common on those screen sizes.

Honestly, the RROD fiasco is one of the darkest blemishes in gaming, period. That MS got away with it amazes me to this day.

I have to agree. Microsoft just throws money at problems and lets their customers suffer until enough pressure mounts. Their own engineers knew about the RROD issues and they still chose to launch. Not that the other guys are perfect (YouTube channel closures, "Other OS" removal, etc...), but Microsoft certainly has a shady history that goes all the way back to their days with MS-DOS. (Stacker software incident, etc...) Having said this, I think the 360 slim is pretty nice whenever I get the chance to play on one.
