Hello, Jannis, 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:

Note: Image uploading isn't entirely automated. You're uploading the files to the wiki which will then have to be linked to the database by editing the publication record.

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! Stonecreek 13:33, 10 January 2022 (EST)

Wow, great thank you! Jannis 06:17, 16 January 2022 (EST)

Deutscher Science-Fiction-Preis

Hello, Jannis! What I wrote on my talk page has been extended to some more years: there seems only sparse information available (for me) on the early years: in most cases there were only the winners or only the first three places listed. Shall we proceed regardless of that (for example add the first three places for 1989, and have perhaps at the same time only the winners for many other early years), or should we limit ourselves to the winners for the years before 2003? Christian Stonecreek 02:10, 17 January 2022 (EST)

I already entered all the winners 1985-2021, they are still in the line to be approved. Okay fine, I will neter the known data from the DSFP website about the published poll results for the modern years. :) Jannis 05:25, 17 January 2022 (EST)
More research brought to light that nominees were listed for quite a few years previous to 2003 in volumes of "Das Science Fiction Jahr". We could enter those counting the years downward toward the year we don't have the nominees listed anymore. Christian Stonecreek 12:59, 17 January 2022 (EST)

Your submissions

Hi. I've accepted our submissions [1], [2], but their data quality wasn't very good. I had to make the following changes:

  • Webpage references to the publication goes into the publication record part, not the title part
  • Synopsis must be in English - I've deleted the German one. Submit an update if you want to add the English synopsis. Read through the relevant rules text on how to do that properly
  • Currency added/format corrected
  • Replaced image url with one we have permission to link to
  • DNB: only the numerical part should go into the External ID field
  • Added page numbers
  • Date updated per copyright page and adding notes to clarify

Thank you MagicUnk, I am currently on vacations, but will solve these open issues! :) --Jannis (talk) 08:56, 6 April 2024 (EDT)

External images

When adding cover images, they need to either be uploaded directly to ISFDB (see here for details on how to do that) or a link to a site that has given permission for us to do so (see here). If the site is not on that list, we cannot hotlink to it. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 18:19, 29 March 2024 (EDT)
