Suggestiuon: A "ComicBase TV: Video Guides and Tips" YouTube video (or future livestream episode), shwoing each step involved in merging separate databases together. Especially how to go back to the original databases in case we do not like the outcome of the merger and would prefer to go back to how it was in the beginning.

There was a little discussion in the chat bar last week about storage for comic books. I would like to see Pete address that topic, say what he uses, and maybe what some of the other ComicBase people use.
Agreed. Storage options would be a good topic. If I recall correctly, Pete mentioned filing cabinets for storing comics. If you use Facebook, there is a group I follow that deals specifically with comic collectors who use filing cabinets to store their collections. The Facebook page/group goes by the name of "Comic File Cabinets" https://www.facebook.com/groups/555329177952584/
Hi @Peter R. Bickford, @Mark J. Castaneda, @Gregory Hecht
I have a suggestion for the next Comicbase Livestream. Can you show us step by step on how to create a new title for Comicbase as I have yet to create a new title and never felt confident on how to go about doing so. For example, I just received my copy of "The Expendables Go To Hell" by Sylvester Stallone and Chuck Dixon from Indiegogo in the mail which currently cannot be found in Comicbase. Here's a link to the campaign which contains all the pertinent information: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-expendables-go-to-hell-graphic-novel/x/23345703#/. The UPC on the Renzo Variant book I received is 9780578419411 and I have attached a cover photo as well. Of course, if you prefer, please choose a comic that may be a better example.

Will there be a livestream today WED OCT 13? I noticed there wasn't one last week WED OCT 06 either. Hope everything is ok.
Will there be a ComicBase Livestream with Pete this WED AUG 04?
I also am not able to download new content updates via ComicBase directly or Sidekick 😞
@Lance Fittro You read my mind Lance. I have the same exact questions as you when I "Submit New or Corrected Data" in CB. It would great if @Peter R. Bickford answered these questions.
Thank you for taking the time from your busy schedule to post your weekly Comicbase Livestream show on Youtube. I look forward to watching it every Wednesday.
As mentioned in your recent livestream video, I have a suggestion for your show that I wanted to share:
My brother and I follow several comic book collectors on Youtube who share their comic book collections with their viewers. We find these videos quite entertaining, especially from collectors that have been collecting for a many years and who show off some of their recent hauls as well as some of their older hard to find books. Since you mentioned you have a large collection and that you have been collecting for many years, would you consider dedicating some time during your weekly livestream show to show off some of your favorite books? I think this would increase your viewership by bringing in viewers from outside of the ComicBase community. In addition, these new viewers may end up subscribing to your Youtube channel and more importantly, may end up becoming new customer's as well.
Lunar, Variants, and The 2023 v23.2 Update (Livestream #124)

@Peter R. Bickford Just finished watching the recorded livestream above. Perhaps I missed something in the video, but can we not use the UPC to determine which is the regular cover and its variants? Since the second last digit of the UPC code is reserved for the cover, I have always found that if the 2nd last digit is "1", then that is the regular cover. As a result, can we then not assign cover B if the 2nd last digit is "2" and so on? That being said, it will get confusing once we get beyond the second last digit being "9", but the majority of comics normally don't have that many variants.
