Re: Suggested changes after AEL front-end development

The point of the low number of calls is to force high traffic users to mirror the data. I’m not sure if you were with us before, but the serever was completely overloaded and therefore unstable.

As far as I can tell, you can replace images by choosing "edit" -> "upload images" and uploading new images for the specified category.

Obviously Mario Bros. has been released multiple times over the last 20 years Overview: Features change, graphics get updated, new modes are added, etc... Publisher/Developer: Often chang...
