I noticed today in the comments section that Smess was being given the description for Take the Brain. So, I made some corrections to make sure that the correct description was given for the name it was paired up with in IndexEntry. In the comments section, the primary name and description should now be used. In queries of the database on the names of games, each description will now show up for the name it goes with. On the What's New page, the name should be the primary name, and the description should be the Whatsnew text if it is available. Otherwise, it will fall back to using the primary description. All of this now works correctly for Smess, All the King's Men, and Take the Brain, though I have not tested other games with multiple names.
