Where can I add or change an image or box art when I edit an already existing release?

No Caption Provided

Edit: I just added a new release to a game and when I add something in the edit mode like the "Product Code", "Company Code" or "Notes" and press the "Submit All Changes" button nothing get saved. The entries get only saved when I enter everything a second time and press again the "Submit All Changes" button.

I swear I posted something in this thread, I am not sure if it didn't work or it got deleted. In case it just didn't work I noticed when editing credits that after adding someone and inputting text describing their work when I add another person it throws up an error and removed any of the text I entered. It also sets anyone to the audio department by default.

This is the error that pops up

This may be an expected side effect of the new wiki editor but I noticed all my wiki past editing history pre-new ediotr is removed from my profile. All my points are still there, as well as the leaderboard on the main profile page.

Seems to also true on every other profile I've checked.

I just noticed that, after adding a new game from the Quickly add games section, you get a 'Thanks, your edits are now live' confirmation, which might lead to some confusion because the entry needs to be approved first to go live.

I haven't used the wiki in a long time, so I don't know if this is new. The left side bar shows the following while editing. As you can see, I am using the dark theme and it seems that the white text color is also being applied to the text in the drop-down options which has a white background. You can still read each one once it's selected. I found this issue in Firefox 60 and Chrome 66 using Windows 10.

I am not sure whether or not this is a bug, but users can add accessories, thanks to the "quickly add" feature. I thought only mods could add accessories.

I know it works as I just added the accessory "Action Replay MAX"

Created a game page without uploading an image in the Quick Add box. It's been a day and I still can't upload images to it (both Desktop and Previous Uploads). Desktop still uploaded it to my Previous Uploads list.

The draft reviewing interface seems broken for me. When I click one of my changes in the left side Draft tab, it takes away my ability to scroll the page.

Deck Edit
Deck Edit

This is what appears when reviewing a change made to the deck of a page. The two side by side drafts can be seen poking out from the top but I can't scroll up or down to them at all. The left side bar also can't scroll anymore.

Main Body Edit
Main Body Edit

On the right is what appeared when reviewing an edit tothe main body text. Same problem, was unable to scroll up or down and thus couldn't even see the test change I made at the beginning of the main body text.

Not sure if this is as a result of being unable to scroll but I was also unable to exit out of the draft review except by hitting 'back' on my browser.

Running Chrome 66.0.3359.170 on Windows 10, problem persists with all extensions disabled. Have tested it on multiple articles but for reference these screenshots came from trying to edit https://www.giantbomb.com/full-combo/3015-141/

@nes: I found this problem also exists when I added a new developer to a game page. When I went to upload their logo the page will not allow it.

I don't know how to make it repeatable, but seems related to the bug that redirects you to different forum pages when you refresh some new threads.

Either way, I changed the default image for the Age of Wonders game page from one just showing the logo to one showing the box art and got redirected to a Grim Fandago forum thread. The change still went through.

Edit: Actually, I consistently get redirected to that thread whenever I set a new default or background image for that page. Seems to be because of the Grim Fandango thread name ending with 3030 and the address of the wiki page for Age of Wonders starting with the same number?

The forum bug in other threads at least seems to be consistent with the "most recent post" number part of the adress coinciding with the number at the end of those old threads.

I've been able to add accessories since I started editing here.

How peculiarly, whilst I do not dispute you can. I found a thread (recent-ish) that says otherwise for normal bods.

It looks like when a game has 0 releases, and someone adds a new release (eg for a recent Switch port), it overwrites the original correct release date. This is probably as designed but still results in unintentionally deleting information. I was trying to manually correct that by adding in some of the original releases, and ran into 2 bugs:

1. "Delete this submission" link does not work. Tested the link from https://www.giantbomb.com/wiki/moderation/9510/ which linked to https://www.giantbomb.com/wiki/moderation/9510/delete which returns a 404 (and doesn't delete anything)

2. Releases/ Edit button does not work. Tested https://www.giantbomb.com/candle/3030-43573/releases/, hovering over the first release table shows an Edit button, clicking the button changes the URL to https://www.giantbomb.com/candle/3030-43573/releases/candle/3030-43573/release/3050-160879/wiki/edit/incomplete, but there's no visible change on the page and the table does not become editable.

tested using Windows 10, Chrome and Firefox, no errors shown in console

Having the same issues.

Also there doesn't seem to be a way to edit or add comments to a submission that is awaiting approval.

So I decided to try and edit credits again after a long time and ran into another problem. As long as everyone I add is already in the wiki it seems to work with no issues. However, if I have to add a new person it will completely remove any of the text I added and roles to each person before adding the new one.
