  1. 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.
  2. @Andrew d’Entremont, I recently also had a problem with things were showing up in the unrecognized report that had been addressed. The solution was a full Update Lists reindexing, so you may want to do that as well.
  3. Do they really form a cohesive picture together, or are they just thematically the same?
  4. I've done it and rebuilt basically everything but pictures. Now, the waiting game... (for the update, that is).
  5. @Gregory Hecht, that's the crazy thing. The title with the extra space before the ellipsis is either inaccessible or non-existent. The only place I see it is in the Unknown Comics report.
  6. I'm going to try a full rebuild lists and see if that helps. One thought occurs to me is that I think the issue had been marked Wanted, with Wanted issues set to automatically add to my AA want list, but the issue transferred titles. I don't see it in my wish list, but it wouldn't surprised me if something got out of whack in the back end. I do have some new issues behaving the same way, only these issues have a UPC, and when I search on it, I get a bad search result, and clicking on it takes me to some seemingly random title:
  7. No, it goes to the title with no space No, the issue in question has quantity 0, although the other issue in this title has qty > 0 Just the one title (without the ellipsis) shows up:
  8. Well, that's even stranger! That's how it's listed in the Unknown report, but in my database itself, there's no space between them.
  9. I keep getting Little Lulu and Tubby at Summer Camp (Marge’s …) 2 flagged as an unknown issue, even though it's in the master database and on Atomic Avenue (https://atomicavenue.com/atomic/item/1219591/1/Little-Lulu-and-Tubby-at-Summer-Camp-Margersquoshellip-2). Any thoughts why it keeps getting flagged and what I can do to fix it?
  10. Street Date should be a good indication of what Fred is looking for (that's the calendar date a book is released, not to be confused w/ Cover Date). However, I've often seen that when an issue is delayed, that field doesn't get updated, so it's only about 95% accurate, I'd say.
  11. I noticed that the numbering for Action Comics 1050 and its multitude of variant covers went from 1050 to 1050/D (skipping 1050/A, 1050/B, and 1050/C). Also, the UPCs went from 76194134388405011 to 76194134388405041 (skipping ...21 and ...31). The implication is that either 1050 should really be 1050/A, or the UPCs just don't match up with the issue variants. Is it possible to get the numbering/UPCs fixed, for the sake of data integrity?
  12. @Randall J. Paske, I'm sorry if you thought I was blaming you (or anyone); that wasn't my intent. Just trying to add some potential background on what may have happened. Mark Castaneda, I propose this title change as Gregory suggests and use "Grampa" instead of "Gramdpa" (and how can I tag you anyway; your name never shows up in the '@' dropdown for me! 😆)
  13. This had been in the database as Simpsons One-Shot Wonders: Grandpa; I suspect that someone inadvertently made a typo when editing and it got submitted as a correction? The Grand Comics Database agrees with you, @Gregory Hecht: Simpsons One-Shot Wonders: Grampa
  14. Thanks, Steven. Interesting that they'd be 2nd and 3rd printings listed as variant covers in the book itself, but Marvel's good at following the standard UPC format, so I guess it is what it is.
  15. The issue of Amazing Spider-Man that came out this past Wednesday (Nov. 23, 2022) has a number of variant cover artists listed in the issue that aren't in the variations in the latest content update. The following combos are missing: Kyle Hotz (colored by Dan Brown) Design cover by Ed McGuinness Ed McGuinness (colored by Marcio Menyz) Since I don't have those issues, I can't determine which should be added or corrected to the database, and I'm listing them here for adjudication and correction. I did note that there's a listing for a variant cover by John Romita Jr. that is not listed in the issue as well as a number of other covers that look to be some kind of exclusives. Thank you, Adam
  16. A related trick I use is to CTRL-C/CTRL-V the UPC number into the Find box, since that will take you directly to the issue itself.
  17. Mark, I've submitted the corrections for the B&V Friends Forever titles (Archie and Friends was already done). I did note that B&V Friends Forever: Halloween Spooktacular was not yet deleted as a title
  18. @Mark J. Castaneda, this could actually be a good candidate for one of the new CB2023 features...
  19. Mark, I'm happy to work on the data submissions this weekend.
  20. I don't have them easily accessible, but I believe there was a title change with issue 4 and that issues 1-3 were indeed Dark Crisis.
  21. It does, actually. I think it lends credence to getting rid of the "one-shots" and keeping them under the one title.
  22. I believe this issue (https://atomicavenue.com/atomic/item/965474/1/The-New-Science-Fair-Story-of-ElectronicsmdashThe-Discovery-that-Changed-the-World-1983) to be the same as Story of Electronics—The Discovery that Changed the World! #1983 (https://atomicavenue.com/atomic/item/319866/1/Story-of-ElectronicsmdashThe-Discovery-that-Changed-the-World-1983). I think this one should be removed in favor of the Story of Electronics one.
