  • 2023-07-03: Audio CD - in cases where multiple discs have the same universal hash, the earliest existing entry in redump is the reference entry to which others are merged, unless a case occurs where one has a true 0 offset (per redumper), in which case that will become the main entry and others are merged to it. See Audio CD Moderation Guide.

  • 2022-06-04: Discussed hybrid discs, where one system is eligible for redump and one isn't. For example, a PC/Amiga hybrid that isn't game related. In these cases, the disc will be eligible if any system is eligible, and it will be added to the (eligible) system's dat. In this example, Amiga.
  • 2022-05-26: Discussed and confirmed that for transliterated Russian titles, only the first letter of the transliterated title is capitalized, and/or Names / first words in sentences. It should effectively follow the capitalization used in the Russian title.

  • 2022-05-18: If a disc is dual-sided, where one side of the disc contains gaming content, but the other does not, since the disc cannot be separated and contains gaming content, both sides are eligible for addition to redump.
    • Example: a Cartoon Network PC disc that has games on one side and some cartoons on the other.
