Time Zone not set by device clock

If I log my reading for the day past 8pm MST, it associates it with the next day. I have to manually chance the journal date back to today.

Translators are not authors

I consider this a bug, not a feature request, hence the placement.
Is there any way to stop TSG listing translators as primary authors, ahead of the actual authors? I tried adding a book and specifying the translator as "contributor" selecting "Translator" as the role - didn't work, as the screenshot shows. The Kobo listing goes to the other extreme and doesn't even mention Ms Bell, but that does confirm she was not a co-author.

I've seen this many times at TSG, and as much as I value the awesome work of translators, listing them as authors and almost invariably giving them "top billing" by listing them ahead of the actual author seems a touch ott.

Switching Editions causes you to lose progress when working down a list

It makes it hard to change editions and add books to challenges when the page keeps going back to the top and changing how I sort the books. Would it be possible to go back to where you left off? Saving a lot of time

Up Next Not Removed when Currently Reading

Basically what the title says. I noticed a book I’m currently reading isn’t removed from my up next section in my TBR list.

Filter for "Added to My Reading Challenges" Showing Books I Did Not Add

When I use the "added to my reading challenges" filter on my TBR, tags, etc. a lot of books are showing up that I have not added to any of my challenge prompts.

I'm not sure why all these extra books are popping up. So, especially when I'm trying to filter for books on my TBR to find my next read that will complete one or more prompts for my reading challenges, it's just cluttering things up.

Username not found for buddy reads

Even if we are "friends" and follow each other, I can't seem to add specific users to buddy reads.

When adding already read books to to-read

This may be a niche issue, but I will oftentimes add books I've already read in the past to my to-read list to remember that I want to re-read it. However, when I do this, the book will be listed as the earliest added book on my TBR as it will keep the added date from my first read - if that makes sense? Somehow I want it to appear as the newest added on the TBR instead, although I'm not entirely sure what logic should be used. Maybe there should be an entirely new meta date for "added to TBR" rather than just using the overall added date?

Recommendations not working?

I logged in an hour or so ago and found all my recommendations gone. I tried recreating my preferences as in the screenshot, but for some reason, ALL the recs were only SF, with 3 exceptions that were mystery. Of those 3 one was in French, one was in Dutch, and one was in English.

I like SF, and some of the recs seem like possibilities, but given that mystery is far away my number one genre, the weighting seems a bit odd, especially since only 1 is in my L1. Has the algorithm changed? Or am I doing something wrong?

Kobo ISBN imports fail

Thanks to Instagram, I know Nadia is a Kobo user, so I hope this problem can be added to to the to-do list: Trying to add digital editions by using the ISBNs listed on Kobo's site fails so often that successes are surprising

Reading Journal edits

When I go back to edit a reading journal entry (just the notes section, to add a thought or a missed word), after I click save, the page then shows only the last three entries, even when I refresh. I have to go back to the book's page and click through to find journal entries to be able to see all entries again.

Editions not linked

I’m getting recommendations for books I’ve already read, but there’s no sign that I’ve read them - even when I click to look at other editions.

Then when I do a search, the same book shows up twice, with a set of different editions for each ‘family’ of the same book.

This has happened multiple times.

Books in series are not displayed correctly

The issue is with books that contain several parts of the series. See https://app.thestorygraph.com/series/1228267 and https://app.thestorygraph.com/books/cb07c7df-594f-4e71-8b70-c5244e8e09c4 for example. In that series the first eigth parts are novellas that are published as four books (with two novellas in each), but the last book in the series is a novel. So we have four books that have #1-2, 3-4, 5-6, and 7-8 in their series counter and then we have the ninth book as #9. But when you search the series by name the only book that shows up is the #9 - the novel.

Typing in the search bar when not at the top of a page causes the page to scroll up

I'm on Firefox when this happens, but if I've scrolled down a page, either search, or series, or profile, or am in any way not at the very top of the page, when I type in the search bar, every key stroke makes the page scroll up and it's a bit disorienting.

Make it easier to hit Read rather than To Read from Currently Reading

This is definitely a user error, but I'm wondering if the app can make the error harder to commit. ;)

Multiple times I have accidentally selected To Read rather than Read when transitioning the status from Currently Reading. I'm aiming for Read but my finger lands on To Read. Then my daily page progress is lost as is the start date of my reading, even if I immediately switch to Read or Currently Reading.

Some ideas: a bit more space between the options, or a Read button showing when the current status is Currently Reading (and a More menu for all the other possible transitions from Currently Reading), or an "oops"/undo to restore the Currently Reading data and let me try again to hit Read.

I use the Android app on a Pixel 3 and keep both my phone and app updated to latest.

Thank you!

Search result edition

While it's at least helpful to see "you want to read/ you read another edition of this book", it's a little frustrating when the search results don't show the edition that you've shelved.

If you have shelved a book, I would expect that edition to be the one that shows up in a search - could that be the default, pretty please? (Alternatively, not have the search results be edition specific)

Books marked 100% read are still marked as Currently Reading

On the landing page of the app, the easiest way to update the status of a book is by updating the pages or percentage read. If I update a book to 100% read, it remains categorized as Currently Reading. It would be nice if books were automatically categorized as Read once we’ve updated the progress bar to 100%.

Potential Bug: Progress Bar
Shipped

The application does not let you edit the progress bar if you accidentally entered the wrong value. This morning when I was updating my read progress, I accidentally entered 68% instead of 60%, I tried to change it, but the system noted the new value had to be greater than the current value. The limitation appears to be a new/accidental feature. Previously, I was able to change the value By simply entering the revised percentage (then I would go into my reading journal and delete the incorrect entry). This morning, when the system wouldn’t let me change the value within currently reading, I went into my reading journal and tried to edit the entry hoping that the progress bar would update, but this did not work. If we enter the wrong value, how are we supposed to change the progress bar?

Smaller bars on the genre graph aren't clickable when the largest bar gets past a certain number
Shipped

On my all-time genre graph, the top bar has over 1,000 books, so the smallest bars, that have fewer than 9 become nonexistent and can't clicked to see the books. It would be nice if the graph could be expanded or something so those bars were still clickable.

If 'Add book manually' form errors, data is lost

When adding a book/edition, if you fill out the form and there's an input error (e.g. a dash in the ISBN copied from elsewhere), the form will reload with an error message at the top and also silently dropping some of your input. (In my last attempt: cover and publisher disappeared, and then an extra copy of the author's name was added for some mysterious reason — this was on MacOS Safari 14.0.3 fwiw.)

I've accidentally saved books without a cover due to this bug a few times. It would be nice if the form could display errors without losing anything!

Search for "Tigana" doesn't include Tigana in the search results
Shipped

There is a book listing for Tigana, but you can't find it by searching for the title.

On a related note, often the first search result for a title turns up a listing with no description, when the site also has a more complete listing for the same book.

Some audiobooks show up erroneously in Page Number chart

I was looking through my list of <300 page books and noticed that three audiobooks were listed there. I would either expect to see no audiobooks in this chart, since they do not have a page number associated with them, or for them to show up in the wedge for what their page number would be if I had read it in a digital/physical copy, but two of these books are definitely longer than 300 pages, so it seems that there is some hidden metadata that is putting them in the wrong place. Interestingly, I don't see any books in the other wedges, just in this one, and it doesn't seem to be happening for the 10 other audiobooks I've listened to this year.

The books in question:

All time genre bar graph is not showing label for every other genre
Shipped

The bar graph graphs for the all-time stats for genre is not showing the label for every other genre.

This confused me at first because this is not how the other graphs display and I didn't realize at first that some labels were hidden.

ISBN can add books, but some aren't available in Format Stat

Hi guys,
I can add a book with ISBN but that edition doesn't show up in my format stats.

So for example, I had a book listed in the format stat as "Paperback" but it was digital, I didn't see it in other editions so I added it with it's ISBN and when I went back it still wasn't there. This only seems to be happening with three of the books I'm trying to add.
