I'm not sure about a pixiv section, but maybe a link to the pixiv account. I'll add this to the planned feature list in the Upcoming Features thread.

Under the retailer links for volumes, how about another section for Publisher Volume Link? A lot of publishers have general volume pages for their series but might not have an official site for it specifically. So it'd be nice to be able to include something like Isekai Pizza Parlor Volume 1 to the database under volume 1 in the same way we can have Amazon Japan, Amazon, Rakuten, etc.

Thanks, that's a great idea, but there's one problem with this is that some publishers have multiple links for the same light novel volume, for example what to do for a Dengeki Bunko light novel volume that appears on Kadokawa website, and on Dengeki Bunko website. We'll have those that will link to the Kadokawa website, and those that will link to the Dengeki Bunko website...

For example:
http://www.kadokawa.co.jp/product/321706000055/
http://dengekibunko.jp/newreleases/978-4-04-893329-2/

Maybe to allow only links that are from the same label's official website, so that only this link will be allowed for Dengeki Bunko:

Yea, that's what I'm thinking too. Kadokawa's site is a bit more general, but the link from the label would be more suitable.

Thanks, will look into adding this during this week/next week.

I don't know if this has been mentioned before or not, but having a more "advanced" search function would be great. Such as searching by volume count, finished/ongoing, genre etc.

Also a quick question. What are we allowed to add to the database? More specifically what do you consider as a light novel? I can see [Moshidora](http://lndb.info/light_novel/Moshidora) on here although Bookwalker doesn't list it as a light novel, and the publisher ダイヤモンド社 has never published any light novels. I want to keep adding novels but I am not sure to what I am allowed to add.

Also a small bug I noticed. When searching for a phrase all the alternate titles using the same phrase appear as well.  For example [if I search psychedelic three results appear although all three are the same novel.](https://imgur.com/tmtc639)

Also +1 for a personal list as MAL is shit. Angry

Edit: Also possibly add the genre - psychological as both MAL and Novelupdates have it. There are some stories that are hard to describe without that tag. Maybe tragedy tag/genre as well?

Edit 2: It is possible to go from the main series' page to the spinoff series, but not the other way around. Could you fix that as well?

Edit 3: Are we allowed to add LN spin-off of manga?

Edit 4: A field showing whether or not something is licensed and if so, how many volumes have been published so far.

Under the relation to other novels section, can you add Parent Story as a relation. Cause it's weird to label the main series as a "spin-off" when on the spin-off's page. For example:

http://lndb.info/light_novel/Kono_Subarashii_Sekai_ni_Shukufuku_wo!_Extra_Ano_Orokamono_ni_mo_Kyakkou_wo!_Subarashiki_kana,_Mei_Wakiyaku

It would make more sense for the label to read Parent Story since the main series isn't a spin-off of the side volume.
