  1. I like this idea. I collect many series which are set in a larger universe. It would be a great way to find all the books set in one of these Universes, particularly if you don't own all the books and want to know what you're missing.
  2. I wouldn't mind seeing that either. Although I've noticed that the length of time it takes to send new data for a single issues seems quite long for what I would assume are just text fields. It makes me wonder if everything, including the cover image, gets submitted all at once and then the second box is to just confirm that you want the cover scan to be considered as new data too. Of course I could be completely wrong.
  3. I sometimes wonder if it may not always be obvious what corrections are being submitting when using the "Submit New of Corrected Data" feature. Would it be possible to add way to include a note to the reviewer when submitting corrections? For instance, I just submitted a change for the book "Vows and Honor" because there is conflicting information in the Notes field. There are two separate notes stating "Collects the Vows and Honor series #1-3; Collects the Vows and Honor series #1-2" While it is true there are three books in the Vows and Honor series, the third book had not yet been written when this Vows and Honor collection was released. This is the kind of note I'd like to be able to add when submitting a correction Or maybe your reviews are eagle-eyed and it's not necessary! Thanks
  4. Agreed. They were a lot more fun when they were a rare occurrence.
  5. One more question. Am I correct in assuming that "Publication Date" is when the book was first published, and "Release Date" is when a specific edition might have been released? For instance, I have the first Destroyer novel which was originally published in 1971, but the version I have is a seventh printing which was printed in March of 1974. Would I be correct in putting "1971-06-01" as the Publication Date and "1974-03-01" as the Release Date?
  6. Sounds good. Thanks for all the feedback. It is very much appreciated.
  7. Fair enough. I was just trying to come up with a way that would let everyone find it easily. What do think of my suggestion to name it like this: "The Destroyer Novels (Pinnacle/Signet/Gold Eagle)"
  8. This is when it would be really handy to be able to tag multiple publishers in the Publisher field when you're creating a new title. This isn't an issue that is unique to books either. I suppose using the "Overall Title" field would come in handy in this case. Maybe create a new title Called "The Destroyer Novels (Pinnacle/Signet/Gold Eagle)" with "The Destroyer" as the overall title?
  9. I'm getting ready to enter my run of "The Destroyer" novels, but the publisher switches mid-run. Can you enter two Publishers for a book series like this (i.e. Pinnacle/Signet) , or should make two separate entries for each publisher?
  10. Thanks. I suspected this was the case, but it's good to have confirmation. It's too bad the categories aren't enough to differentiate between titles. I have to admit it bugs me a when I have to modify a title like this. I know it shouldn't, but I get a little OCD when it comes to managing my collection.
  11. There is a comic book adaptation of The Eye of the World already in ComicBase, and I'm trying to enter my HC novel of the same name into inventory. Do I need to change the name of the title in order for it to be accepted? Does CB not differentiate between the "Books" and "Comic Books" categories?
  12. I've been adding a lot of Fantasy book series into CB and have noticed that when I click on the "Overall Title Name" it doesn't display the cover image when it pulls up all the related novels. I thought it might be an issue with setting which columns to view but when I went into "Setup-->Columns To View..." I couldn't find a field that fit the bill. Just to make sure I wasn't overlooking something I ran search on an artist and when the results were displayed it showed all the cover images. I checked "Setup-->Columns To View..." when I was viewing the results but I didn't see any field that would correspond to viewing the cover image. Am I missing something? How can I see covers when I click on the "Overall Title Name" for books?
