Re: ComicBookDB and me

Hi Chris, I wish you all the best in the future as well. But to be honest as someone who watched the downfall of both Newsarama and Comicbookresources after they were sold and turned into completely useless click-bait sites I fear that the same might happen here, destroying everything we all built i...

Re: Marvel's Legacy Numbering, One Way to Enter

ASM is entered that way because I started with it and even though I dropped the book after #1 the numbering was continued as I started it (and as I hoped it would). I entered it this way because the legacy numbering is on the cover and IMO it should be reflected that way. Unfortunately it didn't cat...

Re: need guidance for new title

If they are digital than the format should be "Digital Media" IMO. As for the naming I'd go with "Digital OGN vol. [xx]" if no physical copies exist (of which then a "Digital Edition" could be added as a variant). So everybody sees that it's a digital release from the g...

Re: "New" West Coast Avengers?

Good point. And speaking of the New Warriors, would the post-Civil War team (made up of de-powered mutants) be considered a different team? They're merged with the original group, but had a different mission statement and no original members. It's tricky! No. As Merrik posted it is a natural contin...

Re: "New" West Coast Avengers?

Personally I wouldn't mind if the teams would be merged but it can b argued that while Clint is a part of the team it is led by Kate and has a new angle - (like the ill-fated New Warriors responsibe for the Superhero Registration Act) it is a team financed by being a reality series. I agree on the N...

Re: Can we get a new alias field for civilians/characters with no codename?

I agree, this is one also one of the reasons I mostly stopped adding characters to Marvel and DC series. Because every time I thought I FINALLY got the right character it was - yet again - one of the stupid unnecessary variations from another continuity. As for the "Jr." that is actually n...

Re: How do you enter legacy numbering [xxx] (because I messed up the ASM latest issue)

You're welcome. :)

Didn't know that this would (could?) prevent the issue(s) from being added to other user's pull lists (but since I don't used that feature I never gave it any thought). It should be in at least 35 people's collections yet the issue is currently only in 11 people's collection.

Re: How do you enter legacy numbering [xxx] (because I messed up the ASM latest issue)

If you know how it's fairly easy (and being able to do stuff like this is one of the coolest features on this site). :D _number.jpg The important thing is to not forget the SPACE in the second field - otherwise it will become "12[813]" instead of "12 [813]". This works with every...

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...

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...
