1 May I get a refresh, please? Much thanks!

1 Hm. I think I have to get used to the Also Read's new location. I think it's good that it gets a more prominent position and encourages exploration.

I don't like where the other editions have went. It looks really messy. Vicky's idea is much easier and more pleasing for the eyes. Edit: I like Ellie's idea too.

But I do like the direct link to add new edition so I don't have to go to other editions first.

1 My Read shelf never updates on its own, even if I add books to it while the rest of my shelves does update. Never. I add books, I uncheck and check the shelf and nothing work unless I ask for a refresh - wish is a bothersome workaround when it never helps in the long run.

Good points, and I agree. Nested settings, better use of the year and being able to search for location would be lovely.

It would be cool if one could use both a more overall setting and a detailed one like in the website if needed/can.

1 I love the idea - could be very interesting! Also a time setting sounds really interesting as well.

1 I use Firefox and have this issue as well.

1 For some reason my "Read" shelves rarely wants to update even though I add books to it. Could I get a reset, please?

Giveaways (82 new)

1 As I posted in another thread about the Giveaways: I haven't won one single book in the Giveaways. Have tried for about 2-3 years, though I only enters for the books I truly want to read. I'm not in the Us either so that restricts me even more for a chance to win. I entered Librarything's giveaway to compare, and won several books on the first try.

1 I would love this service here. I use Fictfact at the moment but would be much more convenient if it was easier to keep track of series right here on Goodreads.

1 I've had a few authors contact me about getting a copy of their book after I've entered a Giveaway and not won it. They were polite and I liked it, as I (obviously I want to say) wanted the book. I was glad of them contacting me, specially seeing as I've never ever win or haven't won a Giveaway since I started trying on 2-3 years ago. Can be that I don't live in the US, but - ah, rambling.

If the author's contact me in a nice manner I won't mind it, but I agree that the algorithm seems really messed up.

Interesting discussions!
1 I don't like either to put Giveaway entries on my to read list. Like many other I use that shelf to track the books I have already that needs to be read. However, I haven't dared not to check that box to add to the to read due to thoughts that it might disqualify me.

I tend to go to the Giveaway that I entries page and remove/move the books that is listed as having ended and that I haven't won them.

1 May I get a reset please? Thanks!

1 I'm wondering too. Requested a reset some week(s) ago in another thread. Haven't updated for several weeks or months for some shelves, and some shelves aren't in the list even. Would really appreciate a reset, please. Thanks!

Same here. I would appreciate a reset, please.

I figured it was how many people had voted for the same answer. For example, +3 people thought it was fast paced.
