  1. In addition to slowing things down, without the knowledge I now have from digging all over for information on these books, it doesn't make any sense. The original title was "Justice League" in 1987 but that became "Justice League International," which changed titles in 1989 to "Justice League America." The trouble is that the books in question were placed under Justice League America, throwing a word into the title that is nowhere on these books. I understand that these two have the same writer/artist as was on the main title at the time but finding it would be near impossible without knowing that or looking for the title.

  2. To make a shorter list, these are what I believe are the correct Titles. Except for the, probably, incorrect 2 extra issues in the 5th Series, I think this is all of them. CB Title Publisher Date Range Issue #s Cover dates Elf Lord (Night Wynd) 'Night Wynd (1980-1982) Issues 1-15 from Jun 1980 - ??? 1982 'Elflord' Aircel (1986) Issues 1-6 from Feb 1986 - Jul 1986 'Elflord (2nd Series)' 'Aircel (1986-1989) Issues 1-31 from Oct 1986 - Oct 1989 'Elflord (3rd Series)' 'Night Wynd (1992) Issues 1-4 from ??? 1992 - ??? 1992 (The Return of the King mini-series) 'Elflord (4th Series)' 'Night Wynd (1993) Issues 1-4 from ??? 1993 - ??? 1993 (The Summer's Magic mini-series) 'Elflord (5th Series)' 'Night Wynd (1993) Issues 1 from ??? 1993 (The Dragon's Eye one-shot (there should only be the 1 issue, I believe) 'Elflord (6th Series)' 'WaRP (1997) Issues 1-4 from Jan 1997 - Apr 1997 'Elflord (7th Series)' 'WaRP (1997-1998) Issues 1-7 from Sep 1997 - Mar 1998

  3. Would love to see a "recent searches" history in the search bar ... perhaps like in Google Chrome, where you click on the search, you get a list of recent searches. Much easier when toggling between a few titles. Thanks! Tom

  4. I'm glad it's working for you now. Steve is really the go to guy and has helped me numerous times.

  5. Instead of looking under My Comics, look under My Account. Scroll down and there should be a 'Known Databases' section. Use the drop-down box to select the correct database you want to remove, then click 'Remove'.

  6. Wholeheartedly agree, Douglas, but there doesn't seem to be much appetite to fix these things -- which seems pretty odd for a database program. I'll continue to point them out, but I'm not holding out hope that they'll be fixed.

  7. Hi, Randall-- I get it and, unfortunately, I'm learning to live with it, too -- but it really SLOWS things down when you have to stop and wonder 🤔, where is this thing going to be found in CB? Let's go on a scavenger hunt!

  8. Kurt, the current version of CB has the ability to deleted Types (Books, Magazines, and/or Comic Books. This is accomplished when you run the weekly update. There is an option at the top to select Items To Update. Two things to consider. A) If you have owned Items in a Type, those issues/Titles will not be deleted. B) Things that you might consider Comics may have been moved to Magazines (or Books). If you get them after deleting a type, they won't be in your database to enter them (you can always add it yourself but if it is in the wrong Type, it won't have pricing information updated).

  9. I love Add by Barcode but if I'm scanning a bunch of stuff and I accidentally scan different types in the same session, the resultant Save list won't show everything due to different types. This is a colossal pain, if I've scanned a whole bunch of stuff. For instance, I scanned a whole bunch of comics and unwittingly scanned a a comic-sized book that was typed as a magazine. The Saved results only showed the magazine. --Walt

  10. Hi, Mark-- Thanks for your response but that's actually the problem. Let's say I have a batch of 100 comics I'm Adding By Barcode and I unwittingly happen to have a something that's comic-sized in the bunch but classified as a magazine in ComicBase, I'm basically SOL when I save (this is what happened to me). If I have to look up all my comics up front to see if I happen to have a comic-sized item that's a magazine, it seriously defeats the purpose of Adding By Barcode. The Add By Barcode dialog does not show the category type of the top item and even if it did, it would still be mostly useless as anything that's miscategorized will trip up the Saving of the list. It also doesn't matter what you're currently looking at in the title view. I can add anything and since I don't know how it's categorized, I might be in for a rude surprise when I save, and that's bad since I want to update some custom fields. It seems to me that each issue must have a type (book, comic, or magazine) that should be accessible through title. If it can be looked up and added, then its type should be available and displayed. Or based on you comment, if the first thing you scan is a comic, it should reject anything that's not based on that type. I actually prefer this approach. I also hope my criticisms are taken in the spirit they're given. I like ComicBase. These suggestions are only to help it be better and more user-friendly. Best, Walt

  11. I'm wondering if newspapers could be spun off to their own section, separate from the Magazines section. As I mentioned earlier, I don't want to exclude magazines entirely. I would, however, exclude newspapers if I could. I can see where tracking all of that stuff in Human Computing's master database might be worthwhile for them, but I doubt many of us want to house a mega-database on our own systems. As ComicBase grows and expands well beyond comics, there may be a need to devise more ways for users to select the portions that meet their needs and exclude those that don't. I've got plenty of magazines related to comics and entertainment, but I don't need a newspaper index. I've got plenty of books, but I don't need an index of romance paperbacks or theological volumes.

  12. Mark, I just did the Friday update. It added 300MB to my dB for all the new Magazine entries. How many of your existing customers have a use for all 5,000 issues of The Daily Telegraph from Australia? This is just bloating the dB and making the updates take a lot longer. I would really, really encourage you to allow all of us existing users to CHOOSE whether we want all the Magazines in our local dB or not. And if you start bloating the dB with 'Books', then please add the same option there too. I subscribe to ComicBase to manage my Comics. Nothing else matters to me.
