how many will be shifted? also I think you should only shift games rated 7/10 or higher to have a better looking expectancy for new games if you understand.

I'm posting so it will get a notice on the forums. Don't judge me!

Why should we go by rating? Even if a game is rated below a certain threshold, there will always be people who will play it in the future. If I am correct, all the games from AG1 were migrated to AG2. Unless it is impossible to do so for some reason (programming, etc.) I would like to see all the games transferred.

not rating necessarily perhaps the fame and amount of add to favorites.

I agree with Knight on this one. All games should be migrated. Although many don't receive as many plays, they still appeal to an audience out there, albeit perhaps a small one. By limiting which games are transferred over to the AG3 update we are reducing the selection and the entire purpose of AG imho. You also forget that there are many people who play on AG who aren't registered users and cannot or do not rate games, so a rating is not a completely accurate representation of the appreciation or popularity of a game.

Yes i think all games should be migrated too but if this isn't possible please do NOT shift only 7+ games cause there are a lot of awesome games ( EX llama advevture or ImmorTall) that are underrated so please use another system.

As long as it isn't too hard, which causes lag etc should we actually transfer all games to the new version. As knight said, most games from AG 1 was transferred to AG 2 (I can only think of speed that wasn't transferred), and I think the same thing will happen here.

Another thing is that the developers made hard work of the games, and if we don't transfer their games, they may not like it due to the lack of publicity it will get.

So along with forum posts I think, all games should be migrated to AG 3.0.

It would actually be harder to migrate only specific games, amirite?

It'd be easy enough to filter the games, but we will be migrating every game, just like we're migrating every user.

Considering there are what, ~7-800,000 users comprised of active, ghost, and banned users? I dunno how you guys migrate, but it sounds manual to me :S

It's automated. Every time a setting for a game changes, the data migrates to the new server. Same with user accounts -- as soon as you change anything about your account (or if we ban you), that change gets migrated to the new system behind the scenes. It's a pretty slick system, and ensures that while we get AG3 ready, we don't lose a single bit (pun intended) of data.

We've already set it up for users and games, and I'll probably be working on game ratings next week. We have other things to migrate in this fashion as well.

That sorts this out. No need to worry about games then.

Well, I suppose I should post this here in case you haven't read it.
