F.A.Q. / Help

Consoleprofiler offers you the posibility to track lists of games and/or hardware. These lists can represent your collection or could be somekind of backlog, of games you played for example this year. You can also create lists about games you are looking for, or games you are selling. Basis for this is our database filled with lots of games and hardware that you can enhance and edit. Last but not least, for stuff which is not in our database (e. g. some merchandise, soundtracks, ...) you can create so called 'item' lists, where you can track whatever you like.
All you require for adding or editing entries is an account. If you are logged in you will see buttons on the top of the page for contributing to the database, in addition, if you open a game or hardware, you will see edit buttons if the game is not locked yet.
Adding a new platform is a bit more work, because it somehow has to be filled with games and hardware. Thus, if a platform you need is missing, please contact us @ Discord and together we will work out a plan on how to add the missing platform.
You might know it also as "Backlog" or "Pile of Shame". You track which games you still wanna play in the future, and you can see which games you already played from that list .

Here is an example of a bucket list:

On the left side you see which games are currently in your bucket list, in the middle are the games you are currently playing and on the right side you will see a ranking of all the games you played, if you ranked them. You will also see a list of games you played but didn't rank yet. In the list on the left there are two buttons for every game, for moving a game into the 'currently playing' lane - or removing it permanently from your bucket list.

The action icons in the middle are:

  • moves the game back to your bucket list
  • removes the game from 'currently playing' and marks it as not finished
  • removes the game from 'currently playing' and marks it as 'any percent' finished
  • removes the game from 'currently playing' and marks it as 100% finished
Important: As soon as you are removing a game from 'currently playing', you will be asked when your last gaming session was. This is imporant for tracking your finished games, to show you a better overview of the games you played this year (or any year). You can see this overview below the 'currently playing' list for the actual year.

How can I add games to my bucket list?
The "Quick Add" Button from a search result adds the game always on top of your bucket list, as unplayed game. If you are adding a game via the game detail page using the buttons, it depends upon your selection where the game will end up (bucket list, currently playing or just in the yearly report). Important: As soon as a game has a finished at date, it will be visible in the History. If it has just a started at date, it will be put into currently playing.

Sort the Bucket List
We added a separate page, where you can sort your bucket list via "Drag & Drop". The link on top " Sort Bucket List" will get you there.

Overview over the past years
Again on top of the page you will see the link " Overview over the past years" which brings you to a simple report about what you played in previous years.

At the moment we just offer stats regarding the distribution of platforms in your bucket list and across all games you are playing or played. You can see that on the top right corner of the page.

Overview of all entries
With that link you will get to the classic overview of all games no matter if they are still in 'todo, currently being played or done'. You can manually edit all entries, but be aware that this of course has an impact of where the games are put.

Changes: Only the interaction between bucket list and play list is reflected on the fly. For all other changes (like rating a game etc.), you will have to refresh the page to see the change.

Bucket List Filter: Using the dropdown next to the 'Bucket List' header, you can filter it by platform.

These are mainly 'Toys To Life', like for example Amiboo- or Starlink figures. The main difference to 'items' is that Collectibles are managed by the Consoleprofiler Team in the database.
Since the number of available "Collectibles" is managable, we try to pre-fill all of them by ourselves in the database. Still, if there is one missing, please let us know via Discord .
The easiest way is to use the quick search slot on the top of the page. Just enter the game you are looking for and the best matching games from our database will be shown. On the right-hand-side of the result you see 'add buttons' for every list of your account. If you want to manage further details of the entry (like your purchase price) you have to switch to your list and change these details there.

Another possibility is to add games/hardware from the detail page of a game or hardware. On every detail page you see on the right-hand-side all different list types, where you can add the game/hardware to one of your lists just by clicking . If you add games/hardware from the detail page, you will directly see a dialog where you can add information like purchase date.

Sadly, this can happen. If there is an incorrect entry in the database and you added it to your list, it might be removed. We still try to replace it with the correct entry, than you should not notice, but in rare cases we have to delete entries .
The Consoleprofiler Team can lock details of a game/hardware entry if we are certain that the information is correct. If you come across some wrong but locked information, please use to report that.
Most probably we removed write rights from your account. This can happen if there were some vilations to our rules. Please keep in mind, that even without 'write rights', you still can manage your lists. You just cannot edit games/hardware in our database. In case you would like your write rights back, feel free contacting us @ Discord.
If you have a good idea about missing functionality, please contact us via Discord.
