It would be nice to have this SIG and games for rehab in this database.

Hi Sandra --
Thank you very much for your suggestions about contributing content to the
Health Games Research Database www.healthgamesresearch.org/database.
At the end of every database item page (e.g.
www.healthgamesresearch.org/games/trigger-happy) there is a link to a
Recommendation Form, where you can recommend new content or suggest
revisions to existing content, and you can put the content under any of the
five main categories: Games, Publications, Organizations, Conferences and
Events, and Resources. We may place another link (or links) to the
Recommendation Form on the database main page, if possible, so people can
find it more easily. Thanks for pointing out that access to the form needs
to be more convenient.
For now the Recommendation Form
www.healthgamesresearch.org/database/recommendation-form is a text box where
you can type and submit all the information about the item you are
suggesting or revising, but the form does not list the types of information
the database would display within the category. We agree with you that this
would be a great improvement, both for the user and the moderator, and we
hope to have it in v2.0 if the budget allows. In the current format you can
look at a a few similar items in the database under the same main category
(e.g., Games) and see what types of information are displayed, as a guide.
Look at a few items within the category because subheadings are not
displayed if there is no information available for that subheading.
Everybody, in addition to submitting content recommendations via the
Recommendation Form, please send your comments about the
interface/usability/features of the database to
healthgamesresearch at isber.ucsb.edu, or post a comment to the listserv if you
think it is something that many others may want to discuss.
We have more content just about ready to upload and will be searching
constantly for new content, so please consider the database to be a work in
progress. We look forward to your recommended content (via the
Recommendation Form) and your additional comments (by e-mailing
healthgamesresearch at isber.ucsb.edu or by posting to the listserv).

Is there a possibility to contribute for this Database?
When yes, how can we help in a constructive way?
Maybe one or more forms would be great?
So people know what information is needed.
Maybe it can be made, that this information,
can directly be put into the database after a review?
So the Moderator just has to check the information
and click on "ok" or "delete".
