Now... it would be really helpful if you guys could fix the Ebooks tab.
Thanks in advance!
yeongshing ADMIN :Good to know. You're welcome.
By the way, which ebook tab do you mean? Eg. Profile>Uploads>Ebooks?
i just noticed that it slowed down my download count, there are some blackholes, i need to put in the titles to know that i have really uploaded the book.
I had the same prob with blackholes. You hv to update the Admins of the problems and they'll help out. Thank God my Gallery is fine now. Although the issue of duplicates and unlisting of new uploads do happen now and then
yeongshing ADMIN :So "blackhole" is gone for everyone here?
Most of the files I uploaded yesterday did not make it to the NEW list !
of course you won't get many downloads, but with all the problems the tech team and admin are probably too busy. At least the problem of the galleries is on the process of being repaired.
yeongshing ADMIN :I could not provided the criteria as it's too many and also we cannot simply expose it because part of it is to prevent spam on site. At the moment, only ebooks uploaded by premium publisher can display immediately in gallery with block by system.
just a sugestion, you know we love m9!
Just wanted to give an update.. My Gallery has finally been fixed as of this morning. Thanks so much, really appreciate and hopefully this time, the issue is resolved for good.
And i am also happy to see the other regular uploaders like tiptoes and wotthell have got their issues resolved as well.
Much appreciated, m9 team!
By not dealing with reported duplicates just causes more work later to remove it hence wasting IT team time that could be well spent attending to other matters.
I have mentioned this before to little effect. Frustrating
I noticed that too. Seems to be a lot of duplicates being uploaded nowadays. I just wish the uploader would take some efforts to search and avoid duplicates before they upload anything. In some cases, reports seem to not have any effect...
Besides that, I am so relieved and happy that our Galleries are up and running normally
yeongshing ADMIN :Due to a lot of data running on site, so for very new book that someone just uploaded within 1 day before, it is possible that it's not updated in search result yet. That's why you can't find it.
We recently made changes to the duplicate detecting condition, as compared to earlier, is it better or worse or no difference?
Noted on the lag time in search results. Thanks..
Can you provide us more details abt the duplicate detecting conditions so that we could try to gauge or compare the situation before and after the change?
Personally, I still encounter instances where the system warns about possible duplicate but then the links it provided are of very different books. May we know how the system identify the 'connection' between the already uploaded files with the one in the process of being uploaded? I mean is it the same 'file size' or any other markers that appear identical?
About the duplicate script, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.
The link between the files is the size. An admin told me that. Now I don't know if it's only valid when it's related to a book you are the original uploader of. (when you try to upload a book but you already uploaded it some time ago
yeongshing ADMIN :Regarding duplicate, to implement better detection actually require complicated works(a lot of coding and testing) behind, and whether it works as expected or not, that require time to monitor. So that's why now we try to make changes to that stage by stage and monitor the result. (real users environment is very different from testing environment)
We try to work on next step of this as soon as possible.
It's a nuisance, yes, but at least we have the feature to report the duplicates and they are taken down (even if it takes several days I think we need to be patient, it must be very dificult to maintain a site like m9 working properly.
Even worse when you took the time to search the author or series and you didn't find the title you want to uplaod, therefore it's ok and you upload; next day it's rejected.
How abt m9 coming up with a set of guidelines for new uploaders and also veterans like us .. sort of like an SOP for beginners.. detailing what we should do before uploading anything. Warning uploaders that they should not upload duplicates etc..
Just a suggestion on my part..
the 3rd and 8th book I just uploaded do not feed to Activities pages !
Salt to the Sea - Ruta Sepetys (Retail)
The Good Liar - Nicholas Searle (Retail)
Can this be looked at please
