HunchBluntley: For whatever reason, the package called Silver Box Classics has not had its actual contents (which should be four individual library entries) picked up on the GOGDb site -- the "references" tab is empty, and searching for the individual games brings up nothing, either. Not sure if this is due to GOG having done something unusually with that title, or what.
Well, I see GOG Db has picked up (or had fed to it) two of the four individual games contained in the Silver Box Clssics package. Now only Dragons of Flame and Shadow Sorcerer have yet to be found (though I now wonder how many other GOG titles -- whether exclusive to a "package" or not -- are also missing from the database).

Not all of the games in the pack have public IDs reported by GOG's APIs for some reason. I believe I am aware of the other two, but that won't help GOG DB much, since it talks to the APIs.
Apologies if this has been suggested before but - how about listing games in the changelog (standard as well as extended) when their "In Development" status changes from "Is in development" to... well, that not being the case any longer.

As we've seen too many times in the past, GoG unfortunately does not always publish a corresponding PSA when games leave "In Dev" and release properly, and providing that information through the gogdb.org changelog seems the natural solution to this problem(?).

Maybe could be listed like this (analogous to entries pertaining to property/title changes):

In Development status changed: From "Is in development"✔️to "Is in development"✖️

Or something along those lines.

Hey, Yepoleb and everyone, clicking on the "Store page" button on any game page on gogdb does not work. Following error appears after it tries loading the page for 20 secs (attached image).

This is the link after clicking "Store page":
[url=https://track.adtraction.com/t/t?a=1578845458&as=1721879312&t=2&tk=1&url=https://www.gog.com:80/game/two_worlds_2_epic_edition]https://track.adtraction.com/t/t?a=1578845458&as=1721879312&t=2&tk=1&url=https://www.gog.com:80/game/two_worlds_2_epic_edition[/url]

And this is the link after loading the page fails:
[url=https://www.gog.com:80/game/two_worlds_2_epic_edition]https://www.gog.com:80/game/two_worlds_2_epic_edition[/url]

I noticed this also happens when I clicked on affiliate link from a Youtuber.

Any ideas what is going on? I guess it is a problem on GOG side.

After you had posted this, I had confirmed the behavior.

Apparently, the misconfiguration (redirection to TCP port 80) is only intermittently affecting affiliate links.

During testing, the middle-man Adtraction link (following the initial selection of the appropriate https://af.gog.com URL) for Fallout 4 (as one example) did not contain the throublesome :80 portion within the destination (https://www.gog.com) value. After a few minutes, it did... quite odd.

For me, it always ends with those error pages.

If I manually remove ":80" from URL, the pages start loading. Does this ":80" removal affect the affiliate links and benefits Yepoleb gets from clicks?
