220 Since I have done all the quotes in the main thread, I dont know which of the new threads have duplicate requests that have already been done. Someone would need to go through each individual new request you have made and check and since most where changes to text it will take time.

If you want to go through them, check and then delete the duplicate thread then thats fine, just leave the ones that where not done in the main thread.

220 They will not find out until they have done some work, which is a waste of time, unless it is a deletion then they will get a message saying the quote does not exist, if it is a change / edit to the text then there will be work to do before seeing the change

220 Fixed

Changing it on amazon may not have any impact, since GR and Amazon use different conventions, and the auto imports just put the books on the default profile for the name.

You will either have to request here each time to have books moved or add the books your self once you have an ASIN/ISBN putting the correct number of spaces in, then the imports will not import it as the edition already exists

220 If they are single issue magazines then they should be deleted, we only NAB things that are not books if they have ASIN/ISBN to stop them being re imported by the auto imports

220 If you have already posted requests in the main requests thread please indicate in the threads you are now creating to save duplicate work

220 Sorting out popular quotes can take a while, there are a lot of duplicates that require merging, merging of quotes for some reason takes longer than books.

220 Only on the edition with ASIN and the paperback which alreDy works

Amazon does not sell the smash words edition so the Amazon link will not work.

The Smashwords edition will stay on GR even if you unpublish it on Smashwords.

If you want the Kindle edition to be the default edition use the instructions in Msg 4 in the link below to set it

220 If it was not published outside of the box set then yes it should be deleted / merged in to the boxset

220 Reviews and ratings are cached it can take 24/48 hours for them to sort out.

If they are not sorted by then, you need to post in the GR Feedback group

In GR terms you combined the books not merged. Merge on GR indicates deleting a book

220 The kindle edition works using the Amazon link

The BN edition you link to is not on GR so it needs adding. You will need to supply the new BNID and other publishing info I.e date and publisher.

The kobo edition you link to is not on GR so you need to supply the data to have it added

The iTunes edition you link to is not available in uk store so cannot check that one

220 A) GR policy is to list books under the first published name which in this case appears to be Rebecca Norinne Caudell.
B) if the user has book links set up for the stores you meantion then then are selecting the correct edition for the store and the store has the book for sell the links work.

If the user has the BN edition selected but is selecting the Amazon buy link it will not work since Amazon does not stock the BN edition and vice versa.
