Desirable new features for DCM

(1/5) > >>

Just from the top of my head...
What features DCM could install which would "make my day" (as they say).

1. Genre search

CB+ has it. Called "Select a Category". Showing you all available books in alphabetical order of a certain genre. Fun to browse. Great to see what's really out there.

2. Scanner's Hall of Fame

Well, here vanity comes into play. But I'd love to see a list of all those fabulous people who contributed to this site.
Tops would be a "counter", of course, revealing who did the most...

Don't know if this is doable in any way, but that's what I'm longing for.
Cheers!

Hi T,
I don't know if or when they might appear but I believe CB+ has the genre search feature already under 'Categories'.
For top uploaders Len would be #1 over all I expect with the JVJ Collection scanners contributions #2.  I try to thank the contributors in our birthday topics - the first one included almost everyone who has a scan on DCM - http://digitalcomicmuseum.org/forum/index.php/topic,2553.0.html

I don't know if CB+ has a way of listing scanners and how many they have uploaded.  It would be tricky as there are uploaders like Prime and Cooper that don't do their own scans but have been nice enough to find and upload many we have missed out there in the wilds of the net.

The genre search is one I'd love to see but doubt it will show up before some other things are fixed first.

Not to nit-pick, but the results on CB+ miss the early anthology books, which generally have a wide variety of genres under one cover.

MarkWarner:
We have just set up a rudimentary contributors section, the home page is http://comicbookplus.com/?cbplus=contributors But as Yoc says it is tricky as you are not sure what part the person has played in the process ... scanner/owner/uploader?

For info Len is on 1,391 and tilliban 343 plus all the usual suspects are there

Also we do have an anthology section but at the moment it looks a bit like a dumping ground and (sigh) looks like another thing to go on the todo list http://comicbookplus.com/?cbplus=anthology

What I meant was that, for example, if I search for "westerns", none of the anthology books with western stories in them (such as Blue Bolt Comics or Funny Pages) show-up in the results.
