Are they allowed, I ask as we have no genre role for them, but they are also not on the list of things we can't submit?

I have seen a few being submitted and I agree that Newspaper would be handy as a Format.

There is a Forum thread for requesting Formats, but just wait a couple of days to gauge opinion on submitting newspapers: https://www.bookogs.com/forum/2362-format-suggestions

If someone gets busy adding the entire back catalogue of newspapers it certainly will increase our book total!

I don't really have many myself, just a few old ones and a few replicas editions of famous historic headlines but I would not object to them being added. I do have a friend who has been collecting them for 20 odd years, he must have thousands of them.

There's an opportunity.

His house is full of them, his family says he is a hoarder, he says he is collecting history. Unfortunately, he is not online, he thinks the internet is George Orwell's 1984 come true, except we embrace it and pay get spied on. He's probably right.

He's probably right.

Yep!

I have added Newspaper to the Format request thread.

We've discussed this and have decided we want to stay focused primarily on books, so we won't be adding any extra functionalities for cataloging newspapers for now

Oh. So in that case any submissions of newspapers should be removed? e.g. The Sun Newspaper, 17 August 1977.
