  1. 4. I would also add that when I click on the name of a publisher on an Atomic Avenue page, the resulting page only lists items in the AA database that are listed as comics. Books and magazines don't seem to be coming up. This should be fixed so that it is easier for customers to find non-comic titles to shop for. 5. On a related note, the "autofill" options that come up in the Atomic Avenue search bar need to alphabetize *all* results regardless of media. For example, if I type "creator" into the AA search field, one of the options that comes up *should* be the magazine Comic Book Creator. It is in the list, but it is at the *bottom* and it is possible that shoppers will miss it. If I just type "creator" into the search field, I get this page which does NOT include the Comic Book Creator title. It is important that Atomic Avenue treat comics, books, and magazines equally in all searches and in the presentation of all search results. If it doesn't, then it has the effect of hiding seller inventory, and that doesn't do anybody (neither shoppers, sellers, nor Human Computing/Atomic Avenue) any good b/c it potentially means sales that never get the chance to happen.
  2. I would have posted this in the Feature Suggestions section of this forum, but apparently that section doesn't allow me to post there. As a moderator, that shouldn't be... and even more importantly, if a mod can't post there, then neither can regular users of the board either. Any way that can be fixed? 🙂 Anyway, here are the items that I had in mind to post in the Feature Suggestions: 1. Can we have a link on the AA boards to point to the old AA msg board? There is a similar "Archive" tab on the ComicBase forum page, it would be nice to have the equivalent here. 2. Would it be possible for Atomic Avenue to inform sellers the expected weight and the shipping method that the site used to calculate the shipping charge for the transaction? Often a seller is able to figure that out just from the amount that was charged to the buyer, but once in a while it isn't obvious. Some transparency to the seller would be helpful in those cases where it is not. In those cases where there was not an error in the calculation, it would save everybody time: the seller doesn't need to email support, the folks at AA won't need to spend time responding to the seller, and the buyer will almost certainly get their shipment sooner. In those cases where an error *was* made, the seller can recognize it that much quicker and everybody can get it ironed out faster and more easily. 3. Can we have an Atomic Avenue livestream sometime in the near future? It was suggested in the chat during one of the ComicBase livestreams that it would be worthwhile to devote one of those Wednesday sessions to AA. I know Pete shied away from any commitment that such a thing would happen, but I think that there was some positive response in the chat to the idea. In addition to taking questions, it would be an opportunity to share some fun facts about AA such as oldest book sold, order containing the largest number of items, most expensive book sold, that kind of thing.
  3. Just like on our old message boards, we would like folks to follow a few basic, common-sense rules to make things fun and reasonably polite for everyone. If you have any questions or problems, please feel free to send a note to the moderators or administrators. General Rules: Respect the netiquette: this is common sense. Just as society has rules for how to interact in real life, the 'Net has rules for proper conduct on the web. No ALL CAPS yelling, no spamming, and no flaming. Lurk around and get to know the forums and how to post if you're unsure about the conventions. Post to the appropriate forum. There are designated boards for Tech Support issues as well as general discussion. Please read the descriptions or ask a moderator if you are ever in doubt. Note that this is the ATOMIC AVENUE FORUM. Items regarding ComicBase should be posted to the COMICBASE FORUM that is located here. While debating and discussion on the forums is fine, Atomic Avenue, Inc. does not tolerate rudeness, insults, personal attacks or outright flames (We're also hinky about crass insinuations). Such posts will be deleted and you will be warned. Multiple warnings will result in a ban from the forums. Really, no spam. You can buy it at the supermarket for roughly $3 a can, so save the canned meat for the nights when you're on your own for food. Totally pointless or offensive posts will be locked or deleted with a vengeance. Users who post spam run the risk of having their accounts immediately locked or deleted without a jury trial. "Go ahead, make my day." Links to pirate scan sites will be treated as spam. See above. Multiple or repeated (verbatim) posts also qualify as spam. See above. Don't harass the other forum users. While teasing and the occasional wicked taunting may be fun, the use of foul language, gratuitous cussing, and generally offensive language is looked down upon, and violators will be thrown out. It's really simple: don't be a jerk. Keep your file sizes down when posting images. Don't use huge pictures for your icons because other users may be on a much lower bandwidth and it's a drag to wait for all the files to download. Animated gifs are okay, but try to keep the size of the gif within reason. Note that every user has a limit on the total size of the attachments that they post. -- G. Hecht aka comicsatemybrain
