  1. This is the wrong title, according to the indicia; it should be Initiation instead of Invitation. I've submitted a title change as well.
  2. It's how I get a sizeable portion of my submission points! 😁
  3. Yes, I can see the exported data (in both a text editor and a spreadsheet), and nothing looked out of the ordinary. For what it's worth, I did try to limit the export to "personal" data, such as custom field, qty in stock, wanted, grade, etc.
  4. No bueno. Not only did the rebuild not help, but exporting into a brand-new database didn't either. I exported only a few fields (see list below), rebuilt all lists except for pictures, and updated content on the new database alone using Sidekick: Title Item # Condition Qty In Stock Custom Field 1 Notes Wanted Price Cost One thing to note is that I cheated a bit with Sidekick: I exported from the old database called "Database", created the new database called "New Database", imported into New Database, renamed "New Database" to "Database", and updated content in Database using Sidekick. I'm not sure whether Sidekick works under the covers using file pointers (that would follow a rename) or it would use the filename.
  5. @Mark J. Castaneda, The update just now finished running in Sidekick, and I was watching it. I have good news, good news, and bad news. Updates to two of my databases were clean, but the third one still showed the error at the top of Sidekick. That database ID is 236c2c0a-0dff-44ba-bbd9-362efc0937fe. I'm pretty sure I'd done so, but I can try a full Rebuild Lists on it one more time; otherwise, I'm thinking there may be some corruption in that database?
  6. (Sorry for the delay; I never got a notification of the question) The database in the screenshot is ComicBase DataBase (ID 0c49f7e9-d113-40f7-8162-b54d5ce112ab)
  7. I agree in general, but in this case (if it's what I'm thinking of), "El Dorado" is a proper name, in that it's the title of the movie this comic adapts.
  8. Thanks for the info, Gregory. I was unaware of the combined title set up, and actually discovered the issue (pun intended) when my homegrown hole finder logged Red Lanterns as missing. I'll have to put some thought into the implications. My main question for @Mark J. Castaneda at this point is which is the preferable entry to use, the combined or the GL issue?
  9. I save to cloud every Monday night, so the last backup would have been March 11. Anything specific i should say or reference in the email?
  10. Apologies if this has been brought up before, but how should this book be handled in the database? Red Lanterns 28 is the flipside of Green Lantern (5th Series) 28 https://atomicavenue.com/atomic/item/1131099/1/Green-Lantern-5th-Series-28. On the one hand, it screws up the Red Lantern series numbering to leave it out (especially for any kind of automated hole processing), but on the other, I don't want to get 'double credit" on book value. Any thoughts?
  11. I've been seeing some issues with Sidekick running a weekly content update. I've got three databases that get updated, but I've been regularly seeing this problem: After it occurred last week, I updated the program to the latest available version (v24.0.0.1158) and made sure to rebuild lists (including artists, storylines, etc.), but it appeared again tonight. Any suggestions?
  12. If you modify the search to only look for Qty in stock > 0, that should help filter out most everything but what was scanned in.
  13. There are two titles in the database for this title Amazing Spider-Man: Gang War First Strike (https://atomicavenue.com/atomic/TitleDetail.aspx?TitleID=82987&M=1) Amazing Spider-Man, The: Gang War: First Strike (https://atomicavenue.com/atomic/TitleDetail.aspx?TitleID=83024&M=1) According to the indicia, the first title (without the ', The') is the correct one, even though the second one has the cover pictures.
  14. I was having trouble submitting changes last night, but it was good today, so I think @Steven L. Dasinger is right; this sounds very much like a "server unavailable due to maintenance" kind of issue.
  15. Apologies if this has been brought up before (I didn't see anything with a quick search and I'm behind by a few weeks on livestreams), but why is there non-consecutive numbering on issues that just came out. For example, Blue Beetle (7th series) had the issues just out this week as 2/A, 2/C, and 2/D and no 2/B (which I guess answers Hamlet's question... 😁) The picture below illustrates what I'm referring to (the UPCs match, meaning there is 76194138175600211, 76194138175600231, and 76194138175600241, but not 76194138175600221). If there's a reason, I'd like to know. I guess I can live with it, but it's killing my OCD. Much obliged.
  16. You're timing is fantastic! I was about to ask the same thing.
  17. Whichever is appropriate. Honestly, I didn't put that much thought into it. <Given name> <Family name> is the format for most of the creators in the database, but there's nothing stopping the reverse order if that's what's called for. All that being said, I'm fine with whatever the editors decide (it may not be my preferred solution, but that doesn't make it wrong).
  18. If it's not already too late, I'd really love to standardize on <first name> <last name> and put any nicknames in the item description (if appropriate), but I defer to the editors' decisions.
  19. Apologies if this has been brought up before and I missed it: what's the policy on artists and their nicknames? I've seen a lot of nicknames used in artist credits that I've been correcting when I see them (keeping the nickname in the item description), but I don't want to waste time (mine or the editors) if that's not the policy. For example, correcting Lesley "Leirix" Li to be Lesley Li and making sure the credits read Cover by Lesley "Leirix" Li. Can someone provide some guidance? Should I keep making these corrections? Thanks.
  20. This one-shot is really Archie and Friends (2nd Series) issue 16 as indicated by the indicia. I suspect this title is similar to B&V Friends Forever in that the issues each have a different "title" on the cover. There may several more Archie and Friends "titles" that should be moved under this title. This looks like a job for... Item Title Field! 😁
  21. You have a gift for understatement, my brother! 😆 Thank you both for the help.
  22. It seems the entries for the new Titans (5th Series) and it's variants are all messed up. I'm not about to try to guess what issue numbers should be what, so I'm listing them hear for editorial to determine what needs to be corrected The variant cover artists in the issue are listed as Jim Lee, Scott Williams, and Alex Sinclair Jen Bartel Bruno Redondo Dan Mora Simone Di Meo However, the following table shows what I have in my copy of the database (having updated contents today): Num. UPC Item Description 1/A 76194138022300111 1/B 76194138022300191 The 616 Comics Variant Cover by Nathan Szerdy 1/C 76194138022300122 The 616 Comics Virgin Variant Cover by Nathan Szerdy 1/D 76194138022300123 The 616 Comics Foil Virgin Variant Cover by Nathan Szerdy 1/E 1/I 76194138022300191 The 616 Comics Variant Cover by Nathan Szerdy 1/J 76194138022300122 The 616 Comics Virgin Variant Cover by Nathan Szerdy 1/K 76194138022300123 The 616 Comics Foil Virgin Variant Cover by Nathan Szerdy 1/L The 616 Comics Foil Virgin Variant Cover by Nathan Szerdy
  23. I have Professional edition, and there are no quick start pictures
  24. if I recall an earlier conversation with Mark Castaneda, the modification submission is on the delta (what you changed), so if you only changed the cover picture, that's what would go in.
