Re: Unable to add an issue to a title, receiving an error instead

Seems the database is broken once again because I can't access any entry with issues in them. Instead I get this: Query failed: SELECT * FROM ((Award_Entry INNER JOIN Award_Category ON ae_categoryID = ac_ID) INNER JOIN Award_Name ON ac_nameID = an_ID) WHERE ac_table = 'Title' AND ae_tableID = 60930 ...

Re: New Member with questions

Why doesn some imprints (as The New 52 in Dc Comics) are shown in the comic titles (Batman, Superman, Detective Comics) page, but not in the issues page (for example Batman 2011 issue 12)? Are imprints for Titles or Issues? Because I think it is a bit confussing :/ The imprint entry was created in ...

Re: Can't See Images

This will most likely be due to the fact that the site is blocked for users in Europe thanks to the GDPR and can only be accessed with workarounds. Since all European IPs are blocked the pictures won't show up for those users.

Re: User "Soda" keeps adding and changing manga to OGN

No, it isnt a format. It's the Japanese word for "comic". "Comic Book" is also not a format (here). It's "Standard Comic Issue". Maybe we should also add "Bande dessinée" for everything French-Belgian. And "Fumetto" for everything Italian. How about ...

Re: User "Soda" keeps adding and changing manga to OGN

Manga is NOT a format. And thus I used OGN and/or TPB and WILL continue to do AND will continue to remove "Manga" as a format if I stumble upon it. The correct format would be "pocket book". Also: Using "Manga" prevents those volumes from showing up on the main page's g...

Re: Groups emptied

Cool. Thanks. Glad this was fixable. :)

I really thought some troll (script) was doing this. So hopefully that's not the case.

Groups emptied

Somebody cleared all groups belonging to the TMNT franchise of the characters that belong to them (Foot Clan, Utroms, Triceratons etc). Since this was quite huge amount to build up and can now be considered destroyed work I just wanted to say THANKS to the person that did this. Hopefully this was no...

Re: Foreign issues of American comics

Personally I'd love to see a feature that would allow for various languages and/or reprints to be filtered out but I'm not holding out my breath for new features here.

Re: what to do when milestone cover reprints lot of covers from previous issues???

I see no reason no to do this but it is of course a Herculean task. ;)
You should then probably put a little note into the entry such as "cover represents cover from issues #[enter numbers here]".

Re: William Morrow ever printed comics as a publisher?

According to Wikipedia the News Corp. bought the Hearst Book Group (which owned William Morrow and Avon) in 1999 so it was most likely already an imprint of HarperCollins (which is also owned by News Corp.) in 2005. According to Amazon (which is my go-to source for something like this) "The Car...

Not if people continue to add character variations for every singular one-shot appearance. I'm just waiting until someone has the bright idea to add individual variants to each "What if...?" issue.

Re: What can you do? Things to do in the site.

Would make more sense to add it as an imprint (like I did with the "DC Universe" that replaced the Rebirth banner) IMO. Same with "Marvel Now!" and "All-New Marvel Now!".

Yen Press

Last year there has been a change in the company - going from Hachette imprint to publisher (a joint-venture between Kadokawa and Hachette) and thus I added "Yen Press, LLC." as a new publisher with the following note: PLEASE NOTE: For titles published BEFORE ca. MAY 2016 use "Hachett...

Re: one or two Paracuellos #4? (based on true stories of orphans in Franco's dictatorship)

i think the indexer just didn't see a price in the comic. Most likely because there's none printed on the comic itself. Because something published in 1997 with an EURO price attached to it is something that can't exist since the € was introduced on January, 1st 2002 (several/most publications publ...

Re: Rejected Image Suggestions

Dunno really about the first one - maybe because of the compression artifacts, which makes it look a little bit zoomed-up. Happened to me a couple of times and it's the reason I stopped uploading character images for "Gold Digger" characters, because after the 10th or so rejection due to a...
