So I have started adding and editing release dates for all NES games, Up to around 250 games done, then iIm going to work on the other retro consoles, A problem I've been having is when adding the date released a lot of games don't have a specific date, most of the time only month and year, sometimes only year. Would it be possible to add another option to input the closet release date? I've been using the Expected release date as it lets me add only month and year though I know that's not what is was intended to do.

Thanks!

@hmmisee: Use the fuzzy date option located just under the release date field.....it should say "need a fuzzy date?"......with that you can add just the year the game was released or the month and the year.

That's on the main page, I'm talking about the own release date section, which doesn't have that option.

The what section? I don't follow.

@hmmisee: That doesn't work? It works for me.

Click on the "Add Expected Date" then, it operates the same as the fuzzy date.

That's what i am doing, I was merely suggesting to add another option in the release section as the two are different things.

I wanted to second the request for a real fuzzy date option for releases, since while the same effect can be achieved with the expected date option, that implies that the game hasn't been released yet. Plus, most people don't bother and end up listing release date as the beginning of the moth or year if the specifics are unavailable.

The only problem is the text. That's an easy thing to fix.
