I upgraded the server's OS earlier today. There were some issues during the upgrade that I had to manually resolve, including issues with the database server. If you saw things like the forums not working earlier today, that's why.
If you see something that's not working, report it here.

Today is VGMusic.com's 16th birthday! Upcoming this year, we hope to add sequencer pages so all songs from a specific sequencer can be viewed (including any pending in the "New Files" section). Your financial support would be appreciated to help us end this calendar year back in the black. As of the end of November, we are $300 in the red. Since our Google Adsense revenue no longer covers our monthly costs, we are investigating removing all ads (we don't blame you for using Adblock Plus) and instead promote links to game soundtracks at online music stores as future revenue. Thanks again for another year of music, and keep those midis and comments coming!

The commenting feature is now live on all music archive pages (not just the new-files)! Looking forward to seeing all the discussions about new and old files alike. If you notice any other bugs, please let us know (the page generation script was rewritten from Perl to Python and it may be missing a few things... like a few ZIP files we have listed in the past). Each game system is now consolidated into an A-Z page since modern computers can list even the largest listings without any problems.

We're testing out the Disqus commenting system on our new-files directory. Click the comment link in the far right column to give us feedback on each song. Your feedback can either let us know if a song is correct/incorrect, good/bad. If this works well, we'll try rolling out commenting to entire existing archive.

Today's song of the day is Underworld from Yoshi's Island DS (Nintendo DS), sequenced by Erin Thweatt. (MIDI file) (TXT file) The song sounds great, but I haven't played this game. Is it the correct song? Does it sound like the original? Also check out VGMusic's new Google+ page.

"Song of the Day" is an initial attempt to start building user feedback on new files to help us review them for inclusion into the archive. Here's an easy one for first for review: Starman (NES: Super Mario Bros.) (MIDI file) (TXT file). Some issues to consider: Does this song match the title and game? Is it good enough to include in the archive, or should improvements be requested? (We can always include a song if its good enough AND give feedback for future improvements). Any other comments appreciated. I'll pick longer songs in the future.
