Is it possible to bulk upload or save a PGN file to a newly created cloud database?
Uploading multiple games one by one is rather tedious.

That is correct onlye4, but the feature exists nevertheless, just as the Videos section is exclusive to Premium subscribers.

I don't like how I can't even save PGN files or try to print them from the WebApp. I can't either sort games by names or opening CODE. Still a lot to improve.
