  1. I've noticed that after updating for the last little while now "Junkyard Joe 2" shows up under my Unrecognized Items. I'm going to assume that this is because it should actually be 2/A, and the issue listed as 2/A should be 2/B, 2/B should be 2/C and so on. Is there a reason why updates aren't making the changes to the correct variation?
  2. Also to add, the auto generated report for magazines displays all the cover images correctly, and so does the one for comic books. I also just tried manually saving a collection report for my comics to the web and all the cover images are showing up. It seems like there might be something a little wonky with books.
  3. Sorry, I guess I just assumed this process was a given. I'm not having a problem with reports being generated and saved to the cloud, it's the end result that seems to be a problem. I can see all my reports on both the web and the mobile app just fine, it's just that certain cover images won't display when I view my report on books. The reports look the same on the mobile app and the web. Also of note is that when I generate the same collection report on books manually and use the "Save to Web" function I don't see any covers at all.
  4. There really aren't any steps. I just go online to check reports under "My Comics" and view "Collection Report-Books (Auto)". Cover images have been appearing and then disappearing from report to report. It was solved for a while when I was working with support, but after it was sorted out the first time cover images disappeared again a week or two later. It's very strange. It's not a huge issue, but it would be nice to have the cover images when I'm using the report to see which books I have when I'm out browsing the used book stores.
  5. I've gone back and forth with support on this issue quite a bit, to the point where I'm starting to feel like I am harassing them, so I wanted to address the issue here. I've noticed that when I look at my auto-generated report for books, cover images that appeared one week aren't there the next. In particular I have been having a lot of problems with The Destroyer (Pinnacle). Cover images disappeared on one report a while back, so I contacted support and they reappeared on the next report, but now they're gone again. As far as I can tell nothing has changed about the series, and all of the cover images show up on Atomic Avenue. I also checked the latest unrecognized items log file of and they aren't listed. This has happened for a few other titles too. Should I just try resubmitting the covers for books whose cover images are not showing up in reports?
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. Agreed. They were a lot more fun when they were a rare occurrence.
  10. 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?
  11. Sounds good. Thanks for all the feedback. It is very much appreciated.
  12. 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)"
  13. 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?
  14. 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?
  15. 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.
  16. 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?
  17. 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?
  18. I find it a bit frustrating too. Especially with so many titles being moved over to to the magazine category and the mobile app now unable to look them up.
  19. I feel like if you have enough knowledge to create a new title then chances are you’ll be able to enter an accurate description. It would be nice if you could include the description when submitting a brand new title.
  20. So, just to be clear, even it it's a brand new title that has been created, the description does not get sent as part of the submission process? With regards to emailing the description, what format would you like the email to come in? Would you like a specific subject line for easier identification? Thanks.
