1 "Adverts in the daily updates email" is the name of this topic. Why would she complain about site ads in this thread?

I didn't read Meghan's comment like that at all. "Staff says were not running ads" means about the emails, because the site ads are purchased from a provider and they don't know about most of them. If you'll recall, when there was a fiverr ad, we had to screenshot at email support.

1 These are in the Updates email. I don't know how there can be "tail end of it" because they are static ads.

The one I have in today's Update is for audio books. I would prefer not to have them at all, however I would especially like to not have them in the middle of the email. If you insist on these - and I hope you won't - put them either at the top or the bottom, but please, please, please, don't interrupt the thread of the email.

1 This should be posted in the Librarians group. They can help you.

1 There shouldn't be a workaround if the cover was simply a placeholder and the cover can be changed. If it was previously published, GR policy is not to change covers, but to add an alternate cover edition. Librarian's will be happy to help you with this. I do a lot of librarian work, but this is not an area I work enough to really know my way around and would prefer you get someone who does this type of thing frequently. (and it does come up a lot)

1 You should post in the librarian's group for help on this issue. Authors have limited librarian privileges.

1 Not browser related, as it loads fairly quickly for me, a Chrome user.

1 I'm wrong about that. There are *not* 20 results on the results page. I didn't go back and count the shelves page.
Sep 24, 2014 06:11AM

1 The shelves page displays 50 results, so even 1-49 is wrong.

I complained about the numbering part in another thread. The number count is wrong in a lot of places. Try search with a number of results. First page is 1-19, second page is 21-something (today it's 36). No, we didn't miss result #20 - there are 20 per page. The system just doesn't display the correct number.

Actually, it might have been, but this warning alert also eliminates the concern that closing the tab or wi..."


So there will be a warning on the stable review screen too? I haven't written a review since this went live.

1 It seems they came up with something awhile back when there was some terrible spammer creating all kinds of listopia trying to sell their pirated movie copies. Perhaps they just need to apply same to other areas of the site.
Sep 23, 2014 07:46AM

1 I agree that the process of dealing with spammers needs to be quicker and more efficient. However, the ability of one user to temporarily inactivate the account of another user seems wrong to me.

I don't think it does, Aaron. It works strangely as Lobstergirl says.

If you search on the regular search for Julian Barnes, the first results by Julian Barnes is The Sense of an Ending. If you put Julian Barnes on the author tab in the add book/author search and then click for titles the first result is England, England followed by a lot of titles, mostly titles in languages other than English. I didn't see how far into the results is The Sense of an Ending.

1 I'm sure everyone will like that. Wouldn't it have been easier to just eliminate the lightbox?
Sep 22, 2014 01:33PM

1 I don't understand. I have never used the mobile app and am able to add/remove shelves at will.
Sep 22, 2014 12:34PM

1 But just out of curiosity, where do you see that? Am I just blind?

Nevermind, I see it on the ratings detail, when I filter by "this edition."

1 Oh - (utility lightbulb on). Thanks, Rivka.

I simply don't see how this is easier. You have to make the comparison. I think it's easier to just get the cover and upload without having to stop to make any comparisons.

1 The number of ratings sort is not sorting correctly.

Example: https://www.goodreads.com/work/editio...
where the number of ratings is displayed:
23,224
561
621
519

I believe the 3rd entry, ISBN 9781400041169, should be listed 2nd.
