  • I originally placed this in the general questions section but I am repeating it here basically because I do no t believe I can correct the situation myself. I think this requires DB control.

    here's the situation.

    As I was entering my books many months ago, I did something during the entry that caused an issue I cannot figure out.

    The specific book is Pizzazz #1 -- this book is no longer showing on my list but the others are there. I think I did something along the lines of removing it from a want list or the like and it basically poofed that specific book from anywhere in the database that I can see. I just want you to know-- at one point this book WAS IN MY COLLECTION master list. I understand how to find the book itself-- but it does not show up as existing anymore while looking at this title. I have seen it listed and even marked it as part of my collection. Here is what happened as best I can remember......

    here are the chain of events as best as I can recall how they happened.

    1) located the Pizzazz magazine entry in the database
    2) I checked off each copy I had of them, including #1 and added them to my Master Pile
    3) at some point after this (that week or later), I altered my inventory somehow and the entire #1 entry stopped appearing in the main listing (as well as my realm)
    4) I've tried everything to figure out where it went and add it back.

    I believe it has something to do with marking a book as "not wanted". Whatever the case is, when I pull up the database listing for Pizzazz now, it starts with issue number 2 and shows every issue except number 1.

    I realize this is an extremely minor issue and it most likely only impacts myself. But if the DB gets a chance and can rectify it-- my OCD will finally stop working overtime. Thanks in advance!

  • It was completely deleted far as I can tell so you were not the only one who couldn't see it.
    I have added it back in the database so hopefully it remains there.

  • I've notified DB to see if he can figure out what happened.

  • I don't think we ever had a #1 for that series. I looked in the database and the ID's are continuous from a previous series all the way through Pizzazz. There are no missing rows and no rows that appear in the wrong series. I honestly believe we never had a #1.

  • I was pretty certain it was there when I first entered my books-- could be wrong of course-- but I clearly remember seeing the cover image was loaded when I first opened that title.

    regardless-- it is back in there now. The world can rest easy.

    thanks again for your help.
