Metadata download plugins
First of all, much appreciation for Calibre (its creator and contributors) which I have just installed a couple of days ago and am getting to know.
I have a question about the metadata download plugins and I haven't found an answer searching through the documentation or this forum.
When I hit the fetch the metadata button the next screen reads that calibre can find metadata form Google Books and isbmdb, however thare are two more plugins (Amazon and LibraryThing) active - what's the deal here?
Also, sometimes I don't seem to be able to obtain description/reviews, even though they clearly exists on, fe, Amazon (same ISBN, plugin preferences checked).
Thanks for your help

librarything and amazon are used to get social metadata rating/tags/reviews/series etc. from isbn. The other two are used to get basic metadata from title/author or isbn

Fortunately you have allowed us to disable plugins. I have chose to disable librarything for the same reason Starson17 wrote code to prevent the auto metadata download from overwriting Author and/or Title fields. I found this wonderful plugin overwriting my Series names and it bugged me.
Keep up the good work.
