Please be careful in editing publications that have been primary verified by other editors. See Help:How to verify data#Making changes to verified pubs. But if you have a copy of an unverified publication, verifying it can be quite helpful. See Help:How to verify data for detailed information.
I hope you enjoy editing here! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will insert your name and the date. If you need help, check out the community portal, or ask me on my talk page. Again, welcome! Ahasuerus 01:07, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
Amateur Science Stories
I see you claim to own copies. Would you care to enter the details? BLongley 18:39, 8 October 2009 (UTC)
Analog - June 2010
Your approved pub. The address for the cover image appears to be wrong. Reviews link automatically to the books reviewed - if the titles and authors identical. In this case the Colfer book did not link because the ellipsis in the book are entered, correctly, with spaces in between the dots. It is a good practice to check and see if a book is in the database before adding a review to make sure it will match. Otherwise, the matching must be done manually using the Link Review to Title option. To make life easy, I have made the fix. Also, it is very important to add the magazine to the wiki page and link it into the Editor record series so we know it is in the database. Until you become familiar with these processes you may want to place a note on the Moderator Notice Board asking someone to do so. I might note that new moderator Tpi has been entering most of the recent Analog's so he will be more up to speed in the manner which recent issues have been processed.--swfritter 15:32, 2 April 2010 (UTC)
- Hello, and nice that someone else is working with Analogs. I personally haven't gotten a physical copy of even May issue yet - seems it probably got lost in mail :-( You might want to place the regular columns to their respective series. Tpi 05:49, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
- Thanks for the tips. I've added columns into their series. I have quite a collection of back issues (and not just Analog), so I can (as time permits) help with verifying. AJWM 23:32, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
Analog - April 2011
Hi. I did not notice your Analog, April 2011 submission duplicated an existing (but much less detailed/complete) entry until after approving it. I removed the existing one because yours had better detail, and while researching/cleaning up, I merged the title, linked a couple of dangling reviews, and put the various features into their respective series. I apologize if you had your heart set on doing those things, but hopefully I saved you some work. --MartyD 12:52, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
- You should also link the image your uploaded to the issue's publication record here. This requires a manual update of the publication record, adding the URL of the image into the "Image URL" field. Mhhutchins 04:07, 14 February 2011 (UTC)
The Reticuli Deception
Hello, I've approved your submission but changed title from The Reticuli Deceoption to The Reticuli Deception, set publication month (as per amazon's look inside!) to december and uploaded a scan into our system (we're not allowed to deeplink to the specified website). The result is here, where you can add any relevant info in the Note firld (or elsewhere, e.g. cover artist). I've also put The Chara Talisman in the same title series.

- Cool, thank you, and thanks for fixing my typo in the title. (D'oh) AJWM
