It only took... 17 years? :-)

But 3 out of 5 is a good ratio to start considering doing more interesting things using the assumption that we have most of the covers.

For ex: all DTS covers or all AC3 covers

Of course it's a little more bandwidth hungry but we are not in 2002 anymore, that should be OK.

Maybe the lists could have the option to be text only/cover only/both?

I think that the titles that got the covers covered (pun intended) are probably the ones people find "interesting" or are the most common/famous.
The ones that don't have any are probably from titles nobody really cares about, or from very rare ones.
So I think it is safe when you say that we have most of the covers.

I’m honestly pretty impressed but this. That’s a lot of pictures and user participation and tons of admin work.

I know I have a few rare anime that need to be uploaded, I just need the time to get to the discs to take pictures.

Can I submit covers for titles that already have them, but in better quality?

Absolutely yes!

If obi is missing, misplaced, cover is cropped, blurry, too small, etc.
More than welcomed.

I'm writing a quick tutorial on how to use IrFanView on Windows to resize/adjust perspective/enhance colors/edges.

Been using this amazing freeware for 20+ years now.

IrFanView 32/64bit + Plugins

One obvious improvement would be to finally turn the notifications (wishlist, transactions) to HTML and have them show the covers along with the message.

Another improvement I've be considering is to generate an email when a user submission is processed (back at that user).

Update -> to tell when a user update has been processed and if it was applied to the original intended items or if a mistake was corrected and it was applied to another one
Submit -> to tell when a user-submitted title has been either validated (and send the link to the new entry) or if it has been deleted (didn't make sense, wrong format, etc.) or if it has been applied to an already existing title

Would that make sense?

Wow, thanks a lot, I actually didn't knew of this software.
I'm redoing my Gundam memorial box covers, will resend them to you once they're done.

For anyone who does not use Windows, the non-installer 32-bit version of IrFanView works fine in Wine 5 on Linux. I assume the same for macOS Mojave (10.14) and older.
