User talk:Stealth DBA
Hello, Stealth DBA, 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:
- Help pages
- Field-by-field guide to entering new publications into the database
- Help:Getting Started
- What the ISFDB Wiki is for
- Wiki editing help - Tips on how to use the wiki-specific features when editing wiki pages.
- Wiki Conventions - How things are usually done on this wiki.
- Help:How to upload images to the ISFDB wiki
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! ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 19:56, 2 May 2022 (EDT)
Editing Verified Publications
When contemplating changes to primary verified publications you must first consult with any active verifiers. See How to change verified publications. I am forced to reject the following submissions A Hat Full of Sky, Wintersmith and I Shall Wear Midnight. No attempt was made to contact the PV's (both of which are moderators). All is not lost. If you contact them and they agree with the changes, your submissions can be unrejected and approved. Don't get frustrated, it takes time to learn the system. Ask if you have questions.

The Stars Blue Yonder
When the fields are greyed out, that means that there is more than one book using this title record. In such cases, you need to add the new cover and then remove the old one from the book (two separate steps) and then once the new cover record exists, they need to be varianted to each other. I fixed it here. Do you plan to primary verify the book? Thanks! Annie (talk) 09:27, 22 December 2022 (EST)
Season of the Spellsong
About your note here - as none of the PVs is active, we can only do two things:
- Add a note explaining the discrepancy in the date and the source of the date you are proposing
- Just add a note that the date is suspect without speculating about a new date (with as much details as possible)
