How to Mark a Post Solved.
Can't remember the name of that movie you saw when you were a kid? Or the name of that video game you had for Game Gear? This is the place to get help.
Read the rules and suggestions at the top right of this subreddit for tips on how to get the most out of TOMT.
BEFORE POSTING HERE, PLEASE READ THIS GUIDE on how to find what you need using regular means!
You must have [TOMT] at the beginning of your post title.
Add the type of media to the beginning of your post title, eg, "[TOMT] [MOVIE]" so that it's easier to scan.
When posting a response, try to include a link to a source of some sort. Please do include the full title of what you are linking to.
When what you're looking for is found, please set it to "Solved" using the link below your title/text. This will say "flair" if you have styles disabled or are on a mobile client.
It is highly suggested to make both your post title as well as the information therein as detailed as possible, in order to help both the poster and the solvers. Include the timeframe/year for older items. This will help to eliminate vague posts
Do not use URL shorteners, tumblr, or Amazon partner links in the body of posts or replies - they get caught by the spam filters.
When you are looking for a song and you only know the melody, include either a recording (Vocaroo) or an online sequencer. Posts that do not conform to this, and describe it with e.g. "do doo dooo", are subject to removal.
If you do not get an answer, wait at least a week before resubmitting your question.
