Serial number questions...
...can be submitted to me.  I usually respond within a day or two.

I'll answer questions about mismatches, formats, etc.  If your serial number doesn't match a mask, or if no mask is defined, let me know and I'll be happy to update the serialbot as necessary.

Thanks for your submissions and support!

More scrutiny :(
Jess asked back in April for nudgers to take a more critical look before clicking thumbs up. I am asking again.

The same picture, submitted under two different game names (both incorrect), was voted thumbs up under both games, even though the picture showed a slightly different cabinet stamp compared to the text entered for the serial number.

The numbers submitted and its accompanying photograph must match.  The photograph must be clear enough that you can read the number without influence from looking at the text entry. The serial number entry should be for one game only for a head or cabinet.

All of these conditions must be met for a thumbs up vote.

Photo Nudging Scrutiny
Hey all you nudgers! Just a reminder to really scrutinize those photos going through when you nudge them. We have had a couple fly through nudging with all up votes when the serial number was wrong. Remember to put on your critical thinking cap when nudging. I typically attempt to figure out the serial number by looking at the photo *before* seeing the submitted number and then I see if they match. thanks!!
