Welcome!

Hello, Corbain, and welcome to the ISFDB Wiki! I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

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! Mhhutchins 16:53, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

Dragon, July 1998

Is the magazine itself your source for the change of the cover artist for this issue? If so, you can do a primary verification of the record, and I'll accept the change. Thanks. Mhhutchins 16:56, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

Response

Hello, and thanks for the welcome.

Yes, I own the magazine. The current credit of Michael Roele is incorrect, Michael Roele is a character within the Birthright game by TSR (http://www.birthright.net/brwiki/index.php/Michael_Roele). Per the magazine ("Michael Roele falls before the might of the dread Gorgon in this month's cover by BIRTHRIGHT® campaign artist Tony Szczudlo."), the artist is Tony Szczudlo. Thanks.

Dragon Magazine, August 1996 - Issue #232

Hello, as per the exchange above, I supposed that you own a copy of the magazine and so approved your submission. Please remember to indicate your sources when editing a publication. Thanks. Hauck 09:59, 12 February 2017 (UTC)

Thanks. Yes, I do own almost all of them (except #2, which I'm about to rectify). Two edits in 7 years, I'll look out for how to validate my source.
To mention that you own a publication, use the "Verify This Pub" link. Hauck 11:43, 12 February 2017 (UTC)
I am looking through the help section, but do I select Primary as "Verified"? Corbain 11:51, 12 February 2017 (UTC)
Exactly. Hauck 11:53, 12 February 2017 (UTC)
Thanks and done. I did find it (just before I refreshed this page). It's definitely a useful wiki. Corbain 11:55, 12 February 2017 (UTC)

Template talk:PublicationFields:Author

Hello, the above place is not the correct one to ask questions (likely nobody except me will see them). Please use the Help Desk. In a nutshell we do only credit the editor and not all others (art editor, review editor, junior editor, assistant editor, assistant to the deputy editor, sister-in-law of the editor, etc.).
