Mr DaltonST is THE guru whose energy should be focused on development of BUGS and NEW features. PLEASE SOMEONE COULD make a tutorial video on youtube or whatelse detailing CLEARLY the baby steps!~.... I use to make video tutorials and will do one after my exams in august this year on my youtube channel - jeanpaulruche. I SINCERELY think that someone can DO such a simple thing! after the IMMENSE benefit we have gathered from MR DaltonST we can duly spare him this task.... What does the community think?

Bohemian Rapsody

@jemsoo7:


Your youtube "Bohemian Rapsody (Farouk Bulsara) Sung by Jean Paul Ruche", "Ave Maria Sung by Jean Paul Ruche", "Thriller by Michael Jackson Sung by Jean Paul Ruche" and the rest are quite entertaining. You are fearless. Good job.

Hi,
i just did my first steps with QuarantineAndScrub.

I created a book record with
author: Joseph R. Smith
authors_sort: Smith, Joseph R.

I think it is correct and valid for Q&S (?) because i found similar examples in the _global_authors table

I marked the book and did a:
"Copy Valid Q&S Real Authors to Q&S Pristine Author Validation Table [Selected Books]"

A view in the sqlite database:
_prestine_authors:
name: Joseph R. Smith
sort: R., Joseph

I think sort should be Smith, Joseph R.

Is this a bug?

No. The values in that table are first modified whenever Author Level Scrubbing is executed because that is the process that uses it to scrub Work Authors. Q&S is about scrubbing, not displaying.

I am not able to find "Copy Valid Q&S Real Authors to Q&S Pristine Author Validation Table [Selected Books]" in the user guide.

Can you please give me a hint in which chapter i can find it?

How to Create a Pristine Library

There is only one way to create an empty Calibre library: through the standard Calibre menu icon. Your new Pristine Library should not be a Q&S library. It should be 100% standard Calibre. See the attached image.

A Pristine Library is just a standard Calibre library whose books all have metadata that is "pristine", meaning "flawless", "pure", "unblemished", "clean".

Q&S libraries are meant for books with trashed-out metadata.

Pristine libraries are meant for "perfect" books with "perfect" metadata.

1. Read the menu ToolTip for that menu item.

2. See page 10 of 56, Step 3, Menu Item 5 in the User Guide.

3. In Calibre in your Q&S Library, use your mouse to select books with Real Authors that you deem to be "Pristine" that should be copied to the Pristine Author Validation Table to supplement the Global Author Table that currently has over 20,000 Authors. If you add a Pristine Author that is already in the Global Author Table, it will be deleted from the Pristine Author Table the next time that Author Level Scrubbing is executed.

4. Click the menu item to do the copy.



It would be a good idea to reread the entire Original Post, including its reference links, and peruse the file attachments to gain an understanding of what resources are available within the Original Post.

Note that as the Original Post says, this add-on is intended for use only by "Advanced Calibre Users" who are somewhat technical in nature, comfortable with ambiguity, essentially autodidactic, and also fluent in Calibre's functionality and library architecture.

The key word above is "autodidactic".

Thank you, i think you should emphasize it in your documentation.

This is really a good description, you should put it in your user guide. This make it much better!

Programmers are often blind of there gaps in the own documentation.

You have written a complex, very interesting, plugin, so a documentation is not easy. You should take the questions of the users to make your documentation better.

Plugins and Preferences suddenly aren't available in my QuarantineAndScrub library, so I can't finish swapping work titles and authors for real titles and authors.
Is the library just corrupted and I have to start over? When I switch back to my main library I get my plugins back. This happened after I restarted the computer. When I started Calibre again, it acted like I had just installed it.
I'm just going to copy everything back the way it is and delete the new library and start again I guess.

edit: FFS, because Calibre wasn't maximized, there was no down-arrow to open the second row of icons that Q&S was in, along with Preferences
