Just thought I'd ask, you guys don't mind me putting in the paperback references to my info, do you? I don't know where you guys get your general references from but they fail to match the pages in the paperback editions. This could be confusing to some people. Mr Nelg
- Not a problem. With many works, I use the edition available on Amazon's look inside feature. Most of the time that will be the mass market paperback. Obviously, there will be some variation as the edition each of us will have access to for a given work, so we can't be as uniform as we'd like.
- Just make sure you indicate whether it's PB, HC, TPB. That's what I've been doing and calling it good. TR 16:39, May 19, 2012 (UTC)
Further on this topic, should I be adding "Hardcover" to the references I have made in the HW articles? Likewise for any others? Or, given all the references already made, do we specify somewhere that page references are assumed to be to the HC edition unless otherwise specified? ML4E 17:55, May 26, 2012 (UTC)
- The latter is probably a good idea. All due respect to TR, I believe Search Inside is usually hardcover, and hardcover is also the format that the vast majority of my HT books are in--at least the "main" AH series like 191, TWTPE, Worldwar etc. All of us regulars have been HT fans for a long time now, so that's probably common for most of us.
- Actually, search inside is mostly pb. Of this I am certain. TR 23:19, May 26, 2012 (UTC)
- Huh, I haven't used it in a while but I could have sworn. Turtle Fan 15:46, May 27, 2012 (UTC)
- From here on out I intend to read new HT releases on my Kindle. The page numbers there are nothing but black magic. God knows what I'll do for citations then. Turtle Fan 19:57, May 26, 2012 (UTC)
- Chapter citation, perhaps? TR 23:19, May 26, 2012 (UTC)
- Yeah, most likely. Then change it whe Search Inside becomes available. Turtle Fan 15:46, May 27, 2012 (UTC)
Okay, I use the public library which is usually HC and I'll note it as such. TWTCE is such as is SV. The stories I liked enough to buy are mostly M-PB so I'll note that if I use them. ML4E 18:35, May 27, 2012 (UTC)
