BUG affecting Player Notebooks

Be VERY careful not to pack notebooks that are the same base type (etched, rawhide, etc.) but different titles

Be VERY careful not to pick up notebooks that are the same base type (etched, rawhide, etc.) but different titles

Be VERY careful not to place in the same broker crate notebooks that are the same base type (etched, rawhide, etc.) but different titles

You'll overwrite one with the other, wiping out the contents of the other.

It's a bug, the devs are being notified along multiple channels now, but it is after hours, so we're not expecting a response right away.

PLEASE pass the word, far and wide. Sound like a broken record on /homeshow . .. repeat it on your server's General channel a time or two if you can stomach being on that channel, etc.

I'd hate for folks to lose some of the lovely stories that such notebooks often contain due to this bug.

(And thank you Smallcorners for hearing about the bug from someone and doing involved testing before raising the alert on Discord!)
