  1. Or, if you have Professional or Archive editions, you might set up a custom field or custom checkbox to denote a Kickstarter product, but those two would only work for your own personal database and wouldn't be denoted as such in the "master" database.
  2. @Mark J. Castaneda, do these issues replace Wonder Woman (5th Series) 85 and 86? If so, those issues should be obsoleted and removed.
  3. As a one-shot (it's in the title, after all), I suspect issues 2 and 3 should be removed.
  4. S.H.I.E.L.D. (3rd Series) issues 5 & 6 should be deleted in favor of S.H.I.E.L.D. by Hickman & Weaver: The Rebirth issues 5 and 6. If I recall correctly, the series had gone on hiatus for quite a while and eventually came back under the new title (and indicia).
  5. ComicBase 2017 had an item in the Rebuild Lists options that was a way to see if there were titles and/or issues (I forget which) that weren't in the master database. That seems to have gone away with CB2020. I'd like to see it come back, so I can find those issues that may have been entered incorrectly or obsoleted (but won't "self-correct" because I have copies listed as owned).
  6. This title lists both an issue 1 and a Bk 1 that look to be the same; which is the correct one?
  7. I think Ghostbusters (3rd Series) Annual 2020 and 2020/A should be removed in favor of Ghostbusters 20/20 1 and 1/A. According to Diamond, the Ghostbusters 20/20 issues have the same street date as what the database lists for the annual issues. I've updated and submitted the Ghostbusters 20/20 issues, but I'm not deleting the Annuals (since they'll just appear back with the next update)
  8. I do have an "empty" database, but I update the content weekly so I have a mirror of the master database locally. It looks like there was some "crosstalk" with my other databases, because two of them (one being the mirror) had the same key, so I've changed it to see if that resolves the issue.
  9. I've got Sidekick set up to auto-generate reports when backing up databases, but they're literally empty: Any thoughts on what could be wrong? Adam
  10. So that actually gave me the clue I needed: I found a couple "Marvel Special Edition Featuring" titles (each independent), and one of those was Spectacular Spider-Man (which your link says was part of the same "series"). I'd conclude the title you're looking for is not in the database and should be added as "Marvel Special Edition Feature The Empire Strikes Back"
  11. Kurt, I did a search on Atomic Avenue for "Empire Strikes Back" in the Notes field and found it as Marvel Super Special #16: https://atomicavenue.com/atomic/item/126210/1/Marvel-Super-Special-16 However, it looks to be a bit different from what's shown in the link. Is this a treasury-sized comics? A book? I did find this as well: https://atomicavenue.com/issue/144008/Star-Wars-The-Empire-Strikes-Back-Bk-1 Hope this helps. Adam
  12. Kurt, there are a couple of things I do to make sure my database entries match what CB2020 is looking for; either or both may help: I keep a blank database that I update weekly (along with my main database); that way, it's a reflection of the master database on Human Computing's servers Look up titles on Atomic Avenue for those times that switching databases isn't convenient. Hope this helps, Adam
  13. FWIW, "Add By Barcode" can be used without a scanner by keying in the numbers in the UPC symbol on the cover. It's much slower, but gets the job done.
  14. I'm seeing two databases with the same ID (for example, "ComicBase Database" and "ComicBase Database.cbdb"). When I try to select the cbdb version in the dropdown (not that I'd want to delete those), it reverts to the "extension-less" version. Note that the same occurs on the My Comics reports page. Can I safely delete the older 2017-style databases?
