What's new in Comic Collector for Windows?
In this update, we are improving the Submit to Core system.
We have created a completely new site for processing your submitted entries, which is now fully responsive to your browser size and therefore now fully mobile-compatible.
At the same time, we created a new auto-login system, making submitting easier and more seamless.
Improved Submit to Core system
Core is our central online comic database, the database that is searched when you add comics by Series, by Issue or by Barcode in the Add Comics screen. In general, the quality of our Core database is quite high, with 2 content managers moderating the data and all additions.
But still, with over 750 thousand comics listed, some errors may occur. That is where our Submit to Core comes in, it lets you submit corrections to our Core entries, right from the software, so that you can help improving the Core.
The Submit to Core feature has already been available in our Comic Collector desktop software and our Comic Connect web-based for many years, but the online forms that were used were not compatible with small mobile device screens. So our lead web-developer Sven has been working on a complete mobile-friendly rewrite of the Core submit forms, so that we could finally release the Submit to Core feature in the CLZ Comics mobile app too.
Of course, the new site will also benefit full screen desktop users, so today we updated your Comic Collector software to use the new site, including its new auto-login system.
To Submit your corrected comic entry to Core, right click its entry in the list and choose “Submit Comic to CLZ Core“.
Important: the Submit to Core tool is a perfect way to submit your corrections for existing comic entries. However, it won’t work for reporting problems like:
- Missing variants
- Barcodes being linked to the wrong variant
- Series being incorrectly split up or merged
- Comics being listed in the wrong series
For problems like the above, the best way to report them is still to just contact us.
Looking forward to your error reports!
