All registered users are now able to add books to our library database. You can see ' Add a new book ' link on library search results.

Just remember to check out that book doesn't exist already :cheesy:

This is a really great reform. What if the author of a book I'd like to add wasn't already in the database? Is that a problem or will a file for him/her be automatically created?

It's not a problem. Just add author name "Lastname, Firstname" to author's name field. Same thing for series names, that if no series is found when typing the name its ok, you can just submit those information and our staff will handle the rest :)

Just select the author or series name on dropdown list IF that name appears there when typing the name.

Now on Library's front page you can see My Latest Adds link. Here you can see the recent list of yours submitted books which are approved by our staff to Library. Also you can see on red color all those books which are still waiting to be approved.

When I try to do this now, I get an all-Finnish page.

Yeah sorry about that. That page hasn't been translated yet when we made this new major update to our site. I will soon fix that page also.

I don't seem to be able to add new books at present, whenever I click on "Can't find a book you are looking for? Add a new book here »" I get sent back to the Library page?: www.risingshadow.net/library

I added Stephen Fry's book Mythos but it looks like the author's name is not included in the record. He has one book in the library previously but for some reason, when I typed Fry's name in, it wasn't found by the programme. Also I'm pretty sure I clicked on the tag 'mythology', but it wasn't added to the genres. If someone can fix these little oopsies, I'd appreciate it.
