What are the , and 'My Reminders' functionalities?

Reminders help you not to forget something you've seen en route to finding something else.

For example, suppose you're looking for "Garfield". Originally you wanted to find a Nintendo DS game about Garfield, but in the list of results, you see Garfield: Big, Fat, Hairy Deal for the Spectrum. And you think to yourself, "One day I wouldn't mind a play of that - but not now." Clicking saves you the trouble of having to remember it (because, let's face it, you'll probably forget, right?).

You can view any games upon which you've set reminders by clicking Account -> My Reminders.

And what's more, if the game has a download available (which many Spectrum games do!), the download icon appears right next to the title in that view. That means you can, if you feel so minded, search for games you want to play, click 'Set Reminder' on each of them and then, in the 'My Reminders' section, download them all at the same time!

What Happens If I Toggle The Pinhead Icon (Auto-Add Active) On One Of My Storage Containers?

If you have a large collection of games, you will probably have them sorted in some way, i.e. on shelves, in bookcases or in boxes.

Everygamegoing calls each of these a Storage Container. Clicking Account -> My Storage Containers will present several options, including the ability to add your Storage Containers and manage existing ones.

If listing your Storage Containers, you'll see a special option that looks like a pinhead . This is a toggle which, when clicked, tells Everygamegoing that every item you now add to your collection is inside that Storage Container. When you toggle a Storage Container to on, it changes to a cyan colour and you'll still be able to add items to your collection with one click, but the message on the menus will subtly change. For example, if you have a box of PS4 games, you may create a Storage Container called PS4-GAMES and then toggle the pinhead on that Storage Container.

If you now search for games on the site itself and click on the cover art to bring up the pop-up menu, you'll find that now reads and now reads . This is a visual reminder that you have a Storage Container toggled on.

View the Storage Container and toggle the pinhead again back to when you've added all the items that are in that Storage Container.

If you take the time to learn how to use this feature, it will save you a lot of work in finding where your games are should you want to play or sell them.

What Happens When I Add Items To My Collection With A Single Click?

If you are logged into the site and you click either the button that says (on the Walls) or (on the search results flyout menus), Everygamegoing records that you have a copy of that item.

It defaults to an item that's:

  1. boxed,
  2. in good condition, and
  3. that you don't want to sell, or receive enquiries about (We call this "From My Cold Dead Hands" for obvious reasons!).

You can view all the items in your collection by visiting Account -> My Collection(s)
