Hello, Wdstarr, 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!Kraang 00:52, 6 October 2009 (UTC)
Title series vs. publication series
I rejected your submission to place the two Murphy novels into a publication series called "Worldwalker". This is a title series and should be added to a book's title record, not the pub record. Click on the title on the author's page and you get the title record. In that record you'll find pub records for each of the publications of that title. I'll go ahead and make the necessary changes to the title records. Here's a link to a help page to explain the differences between series and how to work with them. Thanks.

slabscape: reset by s. spencer baker
Are the title and author of the book credited only in uncapitalized words as given in your submission to create a record for it? Is this the book designer's typesetting choice, or is it the author's choice? The image on Amazon gives everything in capital letters. This is important because the system will enter them exactly as you gave them in the submission. Mhhutchins 19:08, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
And Both Were Young
Hello, I've put your submission to add this novel on hold. Can you be more precise about its spec-fic aspects that may warrant inclusion in our db, I can't find any. Thanks. Hauck 20:36, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
