Arcade Lion - find publicly playable arcade machines

I’ve recently launched - an application where users can submit the locations of arcade machines they spot in public places like bars, amusements, bowling alleys etc. to enable others to find them.

It’s based on Yii 1.1 (I haven’t made the jump up to v2 yet). It’s the second app I’ve made with Yii and I have to say I find it a joy to use. So intuitive with a great community. Everything I’ve ever needed to be able to do I’ve been able to from either searching these forums or from Jeffrey Winesett’s book.

The app is very much an “MVP”. I’m no designer and not much of a developer so I’m aware it’s a bit rough round the edges. I still have lots of optimisation, SEO and accessibility work to do, but it was getting to the point where if I didn’t launch something I was going to just give up on it.

I’d like to get more involved in the Yii community. I’m still in that beginner mindset though, so nervous about giving bad advice from inexperience.

Any feedback or ideas would be really welcome. Thanks.
