So as I mentioned on Twitter, I've been thinking about a page or series of pages on TCRF that just detail all of the button codes / passwords found through TCRF research. Might be something people are interested in. Is this idea worth pursuing in any way?

Just as an example of the things I found. Pales in comparison to all the codes found throughout the NES / SNES / Genesis articles.

Well... I don't really see the point. Mainly because GameFAQs already does it. And I don't want TCRF to be GameFAQs. If you want to make your own codebook, TCRF isn't the place.

It's just stuff discovered by TCRF. I think it'd be neat to have a single page dedicated to it. No clutter, no mess. Maybe throw it in the sidebar or on the front page. Cutting Room Codes.

As its own site, maybe. But I'm not sure so if having an entire wiki page is the greatest idea.

It doesn't have to be an article - it could be its own standalone ebook or pdf or something. Just a condensed volume for people and maybe a way to get more attention for the site as a whole. Properly credited, of course.

Sure, I'd be up for an e-Book/PDF just for TCRF's cheats. Have at it.

You know what might be kind of cool if it took off? A print version of that.

Yeah, it's one of those "eBook is cheaper and easier, print is super expensive", but if we decided to do some test copies, well...I'm a department manager of a particular national chain with a print center, so I could at least produce them personally... :O

(Don't mind me, I just want to mix business with pleasure. )

So a few possible guidelines for this:
* The code / password has to be originate from the site (obviously), so no codes that were previously published in magazines, GameFAQs, etc.
* Game Genie / Game Shark / PAR / MAME cheat engine codes probably shouldn't be included, but maybe...
* Codes that were designed to be entered via a special peripheral (like the Super Game Boy debug functions and the Super Bomberman unlockable battle maps) should not be included.
* Not sure how to handle codes that require buttons that are normally inaccessible to the user (like any of the Arcade cheat that require pressing the Service button or have to be entered in a test mode), but they should probably be excluded as well.
