Artur Nowakowski

I saw you did some edits for him recently, so I thought I'd mention this,, in case you want to enter it; I assume you're fluent in Polish. --Username (talk) 11:49, 20 October 2022 (EDT)

I'm an author of that book - sure, I will add it to isfdb. Noart1972 (talk) 10:57, 21 October 2022 (EDT)



Just a quick note to point you to the list of currencies we support: here. The Polish zlota is recorded with its abbreviation zł and not as PLN. Annie (talk) 13:32, 22 December 2022 (EST)

Hi, ok - thank you! Noart1972 (talk) 06:32, 23 December 2022 (EST)

Dary wrózek

Regarding this submission: You are varianting a story to a poem. Is this the correct parent? Or does "Dary wrózek" need to be changed to a poem? Thanks. -- JLaTondre (talk) 10:07, 23 December 2022 (EST)

this is a prose - kind of poetic prose. Look here:

I saw this when reviewing your other submissions so I added the translator template, but left the title type. Submit an edit to change it to poem and JLaTondre will approve the change and the held variant submission. John Scifibones 16:37, 23 December 2022 (EST)
Ok, I changed title type of "Dary wrózek" into poem. I hope it was what you meant. Noart1972 (talk) 17:30, 23 December 2022 (EST)

Commonplace and Other Short Stories

Thank you for entering 'Commonplace and Other Short Stories'. A couple changes were necessary to comply with our standards.

  • The author was changed to Christina G. Rossetti, we credit the author as shown on the title page.
  • The publisher was changed from 'F.S. Ellis, London' to 'F. S. Ellis', we don't include the city in the publisher name.
  • Changed the pages from '329' to 'vi+329'. "When a book has a section with Roman numeral page numbers for introductory material, followed by Arabic numerals for the main text of the book, enter both sets of numbers."
  • I added a link to a scanned copy in the internet archive.

Here is the result. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. John Scifibones 15:14, December 23, 2022

Thank you! Noart1972 (talk) 15:38, 23 December 2022 (EST)
You're welcome. Notice how I indented your response with a colon and mine with two. Here is the explanation from the help section - The common convention on the ISFDB wiki is that in discussion threads, responses are indented using leading colons to show different levels of response. When a discussion has gotten overly indented, someone may set the indent level back to zero, and prefix that comment with "(unindent)". John Scifibones 16:05, 23 December 2022 (EST)
Still a lot to learn - thank you again :). Noart1972 (talk) 16:27, 23 December 2022 (EST)

My Lunatic Asylum

Regarding this submission:

  1. Are all the stories being added speculative fiction? For a mixed genre collection, we would only add the speculative fiction stories (unless it was a recognized speculative fiction author which is not the case here).
  2. The pub notes have "Major Whittington", but the new title being added is "Mjor Whittington". Is that a typo?

Thanks. -- JLaTondre (talk) 09:11, 29 December 2022 (EST)

  1. To my knowledge (I haven't read all of those stories) "Major Whittington" is science-fiction for sure. I suppose the rest isn't speculative fiction.
  2. Yes, it's typo - it should be "Major"
Thank you! Noart1972 (talk) 10:20, 29 December 2022 (EST)
Okay, let's just add "Major Whittington" for now. I have rejected your submission and made the necessary changes. If you determine any other titles qualify for inclusion, feel free to add them. For "Major Whittington", you entered the Polish translation as a novelette and the English translation as a novella. Do you know which is correct? Thanks. -- JLaTondre (talk) 10:56, 29 December 2022 (EST)
It hasn't more than 100 pages (about 50) so let's say it's novelette :) Noart1972 (talk) 11:10, 29 December 2022 (EST)
Updated. Thanks. -- JLaTondre (talk) 12:42, 29 December 2022 (EST)

Feliks Burdecki

Thanks for submitting Feliks Burdecki's biographical data! I have approved the submission and added the dates of birth and death from Wikipedia.

Please note that, as per Help:Screen:AuthorData:

  • For locations whose names have changed over time, use the name as of the time of the author's birth, e.g. for authors born in Lviv between 1773 and 1918, use "Lemberg".

so I have changed "Toruń" to "Thorn, West Prussia, Kingdom of Prussia, German Empire". Thanks for editing! Ahasuerus (talk) 22:47, 29 December 2022 (EST)

Sure, thank you for the update! Noart1972 (talk) 04:55, 30 December 2022 (EST)

Death Child; Boothby's story seems to be from 1898, not 1905; None of the Doig anthology editions it appears in are PV so does your PV of this magazine give a date for the story? --Username (talk) 08:40, 26 May 2023 (EDT)


you're right, I didn't know that. I changed that on the "parent" page (it's pending now for an approvement) Noart1972 (talk) 06:59, 31 May 2023 (EDT)

Afryka Południowa na Marsie (excerpt)


I had to reject this submission - we do not variant excerpts into their complete works. You can add a note linking to the novel if you want to (as the titles do not match so that would make it clearer) and if the novel is in a series, we will add the excerpts there but they stand on their own. Thanks for the submission though - it does look logical when there is nothing else to variant it into. Sorry that it took so long to get to your submission! Annie (talk) 12:21, 6 February 2024 (EST)

The same applied to this one and this one. Annie (talk) 12:22, 6 February 2024 (EST)
