RSS Feed eBook publication confusion



  • My RSS feed infomred me that "Watafuta Vol. 1" is publised as a eBook, so I went to the page and bought the premium eBook, only to get "Download available Dec 14th, 2017" notification ino my libray instead of the download button.
    This is kind of confusing, as it is the 14th.

    It seems that the staff here operates at some US time zone, which is exactly why I thought I could trust the RSS Feed to keep me informed about the new realeses, but apparently I was wrong.

    So I wish to propose that the eBook releases will only be posted to the RSS Feed if that book is indeed availible and that time zones will be added to the date anoucements.

    Because I need my reading fix and I do not want to be disapointed that I pre ordered a book instead of buying it at release.

    It is available, but only on amazon and other retailers. Premium ebook have its own release date which may be different from others (either because of error or because they needed extra time to make premium things). Library's "available at ..." is kinda useless near release date, indeed.

    and that time zones will be added to the date anoucements.

    Date in the library doesn't tell the whole story because it has some time of the day set as well and timezone won't do you any good without knowing exact time.

    Times are served as UTC and they are properly calculated locally according to your time zone so that shouldn't be the problem.

    Anyway, go recheck the library. The book should've become available few minutes ago.
