Not sure this is where this post should go, but why aren't any of the smash up expansions under smash up 2012? They are listed as their own seperate products when it clearly says expansion on the box.

They are all fully playable two-player games, as well as expansions to the base.

Just because they are standalone as well doesn't mean they can't be listed as expansions of the base game as well. They all "integrate with" each other, but that data point doesn't have them all that way with each other either. And while we're at it, they should all technically "reimplement" the base game as well.

It takes someone willing to submit the changes for them to happen in the database. Now, if these changes have been submitted and they rejected them, I think that would be something to complain about

Well, I suppose since games get ranked and expansions do not, there's a mutually exclusive nature to the two categories. Data can be pesky like that.

That's a good point, but I'm sure there'd be a way to get around that fairly easily (I've dealt with categorization work on more than my share of projects as well).
