  1. When I would submit larger covers with previous versions of CB, I would get a prompt saying " You have X covers that are new or larger than ComicBase has on file. Would you like to submit them?". And then a thank you popup once the covers uploaded. CB2022 doesn't do this. I get a popup without knowing the number of covers that are new/larger and I don't know when the process is done. I know upload speeds are faster these days. But at the least, could you please have the thank you popup appear the same way it does when it is just regular data? Then I know I can move on to whatever I need to do in CB.

    I'm wondering if newspapers could be spun off to their own section, separate from the Magazines section. As I mentioned earlier, I don't want to exclude magazines entirely. I would, however, exclude newspapers if I could.

    I can see where tracking all of that stuff in Human Computing's master database might be worthwhile for them, but I doubt many of us want to house a mega-database on our own systems. As ComicBase grows and expands well beyond comics, there may be a need to devise more ways for users to select the portions that meet their needs and exclude those that don't. I've got plenty of magazines related to comics and entertainment, but I don't need a newspaper index. I've got plenty of books, but I don't need an index of romance paperbacks or theological volumes.


    I second this, if for the only reason that a newspapers database would potentially be larger than all other media combined. Think about, every city has had at least one newspaper at one time or another. Some of the larger cities had multiple ones concurrently and have a publishing history of hundreds of years, daily and weekly.

  3. I was browsing through titles and I noticed this: some (I don't know how many) of the Italian comic books don't have the cover price currency listed. When I went to enter the currency using the Quick Change [Ctrl-G], Italian Lira (ITL) is not listed. However, when I went to the cell and clicked the drop-down, it was listed. So what happened and can you fix it? The screenshots I took were from 44 Magnum.


    This is CB 2022 4K Archive Edition v22.0.1.1601

  4. Could you please contact the person who keeps submitting this title under Books and let them know this should be under Comic Books? I have resubmitted this many times and have had emails about where this should belong. I do have a copy and I am the one who first submitted data about it.
