The only time users can see if a walkthrough is a GameAnyone exclusive is by looking at the most recent walkthroughs page  (an sometimes at the hompeage). Is there anyway to add the GA logo as it appears in the newest walkthroughs and include that next to the "Walkthrough Title" in a game's search results? And is there anyway to also put that same logo on profile walkthroughs?

Essentially, this is my idea that i photoshopped

I believe this was brought up before, but we ended up not implementing it because it added too much clutter to pages. When a user is looking on the site for a walkthrough to watch, it doesn't really matter where it is hosted.

It would be nice to have this info on the page somewhere, but making it look good is another thing altogether.

After some more thought, I think we should do something with this, just maybe not on all pages.

This thread is kinda why we should have this:
http://forum.gameanyone.com/index.php?topic=23961.0

I think it should be something subtle to show which walkthroughs are exclusive. I think the G icon is too big and distracting. Any suggestions on this? Particularly for this page: http://www.gameanyone.com/PS3/Beyond_Two_Souls.html

Perhaps what I implemented was even less subtle than the icon, but here is a first draft:

I think this is actually a good idea to color code the word than add an icon. It'll help distinguish between a walkthrough that is an exclusive here.

I like it. It's discreet yet noticeable.

I like it, I say go ahead and implement it as it draws more attention without being glaring and in your face.

It looks nice, but I think there should be a key or something that lets users know that highlighted games are GA exclusives.

There is a key. It even says Key.  Cheesy
