Looks great, the tooltip is a very useful …eh… tool. Well done :wink:

Sorry for the delays everybody, I got massively distracted…

Do let me know if you encounter any issues or have suggestions for improvement.

Thanks, @mr_monkey, this looks fantastic! I’ll try to add a couple works, go through the motions and say if there’s something I think should be improved, but it really looks great to me.

I’m really happy with how the new work types were implemented. The hierarchical display, the tooltip, the description once you’ve selected a type, being able to search the list… all great.

The only thing I didn’t like is the “Comics/manga/sequential art” type being displayed like that, with slashes. Would prefer just having a main title and the other variants showing in the tooltip. But this was the most disputed type, and at least “manga” needs to be searchable to prevent a mutiny, so I think this isn’t possible at the moment. But maybe in future work types can have searchable aliases, there can be other cases like this, where people are adamant about distinctions in a type.

Something else that would be nice would be to add the list of work types to the User Guide, so people can look through the whole list.
