@trentellingsen one thing I noticed is the image gallery with the main image being displayed is very small both on mobile and desktop. I think the gallery popup takes about 1/3 of the screen.
I was also thinking of a suggestion, would it be possible for image uploads on posts to have an extra field to link the image to a game? That way if I make a post linked to say Quacks of Quedlingburg with images of a playthrough, those images might appear on the Quacks game page gallery. I believe this might increase the amount of images on game pages significantly.

That's a brilliant idea.
Also, I fixed the 1/3 size of the game images.
perfect, thank you!

I'm liking it! So far it seems easier to read. This is another time when it would be helpful to have a before and after photo, since I can't quite remember how it looked before. :) But yeah it seems less scattered to me.
One thing I'm having trouble finding: how to link an expansion to a base game. Is this still there and I'm blind, or did it get lost in the shuffle? @trentellingsen
I added it to the game's edit page. It seemed like a better spot since that's where we go to make changes to the page.
ah, I see it. Thanks!
