  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. You're timing is fantastic! I was about to ask the same thing.
  4. 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).
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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! 😁
  8. You have a gift for understatement, my brother! 😆 Thank you both for the help.
  9. 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
  10. I have Professional edition, and there are no quick start pictures
  11. 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.
  12. @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.
  13. Do they really form a cohesive picture together, or are they just thematically the same?
  14. I've done it and rebuilt basically everything but pictures. Now, the waiting game... (for the update, that is).
  15. @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.
  16. 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:
  17. 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:
  18. 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.
  19. 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?
  20. 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.
  21. 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?
  22. @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! 😆)
  23. 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
