You asked for it! :laugh:

We would love to have more metadata fields, that would certainly improve the ComicRack experience. Taking a clue from the 'old boy', the Comic Collector software, I have a few humble suggestions:

1. Story Arc

This will nicely complement the Alternate Series field (which Comic collector names as 'Crossover'). And another good addition would be the Story arc number (just like the alternate number).

A use of these two is exemplified here:

Alternate Series/Crossover:



Story Arc:





2. Series Group

Again, would be highly useful in grouping books which belong to a common parent group. like Uncanny X-Men, X-Men:legacy, Astonishing X-men.



3. Character Group (or Key Character or Main Character)

same as above. Currently, we have a bunch of people names in the character field. So, if you group by character, it is pretty useless.

3. User Defined fields

Requested from a long long time. Both menu fields and text fields would be good. Here the user can use these for whatever personal purposes he likes.



4. Multiple web links

Again has been requested in the past. Would be useful to goto comic vine, amazon , review sites etc.



5. Day field, and maybe a Calendar Week field

Again requested for a long time, but no progress has been made. Highly useful fields.



6. Issue Extension field

For crazy numberings coming these days, like point 1.




Any chance of these seeing the light of the day? :unsure:

Thanks perezmu for the support, but since our Android posterboy has chosen not to comment, the chances are bleak... :(

I'll greatly appreciate his traditional "I'll think about it". Is this asking for too much?

Perhaps he has more important things to do in life or at work. It happens ;)

You are correct. I think I shall wipe out the first post above, and replace it with a "Er...cYo sir, there is a little typo in the read me.txt file. Would you be so kind as to correct that for me? You granted me a wish, remember? Gee, thanks sir, your kindness is overflowing!" :laugh:

p.s. Just joking... I'll keep rubbing the lamp forever! :)
