@bibliothecary I see that you’ve added a lot of stuff :joy:. Out of curiosity, when I auto find a series, are you actually double checking that they aren’t crazy, multi-hundred book series?

Just wondering if I need to check them, or if I can greenlight them all to be populated :sweat_smile:

I’ve only been checking the series box for the ones that really are part of a series, so there shouldn’t be any “publisher series” in the ones I’ve submitted recently. :smile:

Some series include the series page as volume 1, for example 밤을 걷는 선비 시리즈 (series) | L25 and 안녕?!자두야!! 시리즈 (series) | L15. Not sure if this applies to all submissions or just the ones where the original submission was the series page.

Yeah it seems I need to do a tad bit more work on the series populater, which i’ll do tomorrow. I also have to fix that issue where your series weren’t collapsing properly in your library… you’ll notice the same thing on all the new series you added until I fix tomorrow

When adding new titles, could the info in square brackets be ignored? They’re often things like 대여 (rental) or 고화질 (HD images).

This probably makes sense. Mind sending an example yes24 link for my parsing tests?

A new sub or just a link? Here’s one: [전자책][고화질] 루어(RURE) - 예스24

Looks like TTMIK has gone full paid! I guess they’ve been laying the ground work, but still a bit sad:

Sad indeed. They offered a substantial amount of quality learning material for free for 10+ years, so I can’t really fault them for trying to make (more) money. Glad I saved a bunch of their PDFs back when I was using the site in earnest, though. :smirk:

When adding dubbed shows, the results of the TMDB search show the Korean title and cover, but when the item is added the English title/cover are displayed. Would it be possible to use the Korean title/cover while keeping the other info (such as the description) in English?

I see that you’re not interested in the live action one, how korean :eyes:

Yeah, I know. This has been an issue for Japanese too. It’s fixable, just need to do it… :slight_smile:

Video activity seems patchy, updating by full episodes doesn’t update activity/stats.

I’ve been watching the series for the past couple of weeks, updating using the ‘+’ on the dashboard almost every day, but…

Possibly related to this?

I’ve been having a look at Korean Literary Awards to potentially be added to the search filter like they are in Japanese. These are apparently the most prestigious:

Other notable awards:

If/when implemented, expect a lot of new subs from me! :rofl:

I’ll try to investigate this today :thinking:

Yeah, we’ll see if I have time to add these things.

Subs? You mean like new requests? :joy:

Submissions, I think, from context.

I’m getting this error for these items:


Should I submit feedback for items that have these in the title, or will you be able to remove them en masse?


Untitled series (on Y24) take the title of the first volume as the series name, for example: 허니머스타드 1권 시리즈 (series) | L25?? and 마녀의 소녀 1권 시리즈 (series) | L30??. Could the 1권 be ignored when creating the series title?


I noticed Korean has [Featured] in the top topic titles, but my Japanese dashboard doesn’t. :thinking:

@bibliothecary thanks for reporting all these. However, i feel that i’m missing some of your bug reports. Can we move to making more formal bug reports (be sure to tag your product request with bug)? I’ve updated the title & description of this thread to emphasize bug reports now.

This will make it a lot easier for me to investigate.

This is actually not a bug. I was worried that Korean topics would be overwhelmed by the Natively category topics, so I highlighted a few for Korean.

Makes sense. :slightly_smiling_face:

Sure, I’ll do that for the ones I’ve reported in this thread that haven’t been resolved yet. :saluting_face:

eta: I can’t add tags :cry:

I think that’s all the bugs from this thread added, and a couple of product requests, too. :+1:
