Librarian status (16 new)

220 I agree. That's unfair and rude. If they're going to revoke your librarian status, they should at least email or PM you that they did so and why they did it. I hope you get your LS back.

220 This is completely acceptable. I do this all the time.

220 Just undid all her inappropriate changes. Someone from the GR staff should message her about GoodReads' rules.

220 Done. I even took the time to photoshop-improve the cover-scan.

And we don't already have disagreement about what pages we would count? Pages are more misleading than word count, imo, because of font size, paper size, margin, etc. Look at this thread, we're having a disagreement about which page count from which epub format we should use. If we used word count, this wouldn't happen. There would be new problems, yes I agree, but it would be less problematic than page count imo.

Maybe we should have both a page and a word count field. More info doesn't hurt.

220 Done.

ETA: Wrong cover that edition. You want this edition: The History of Rock A Definitive Guide to Rock, Punk, Metal and Beyond by Mark Paytress
220 Done. If there's anything else you would like me to fix, speak up. =)

220 Instead of pages, I wish we used word count. Hella easier that way.

We only replace cover art if the existing cover art is of lower quality image being replaced with a higher one or if the existing cover art never belonged to that edition in the first place.

220 1) Description changed
2) Cover replaced
3) Original publication date changed.
4) It should be 288 pages as settled in another Librarian thread. Some misguided Librarian ignored the Librarian's Note of another Librarian.

I'll tell you what I told the other user who brought it up here and it's this: A zombie apocalypse is more likely to happen than Goodreads changing its rating system. Once that happen, then Goodreads will think about it... if they're not all zombies already. ;)

You're talking about me. I also said in that Librarian's Note that if anyone has an issue with this, then they should come here to this group and discuss it. However, if you truly find the "or you will be reported" line so threatening, then I apologize. I changed that part to "or your change will be reversed" now. Hopefully you will find it non-threatening.

As rivka said, we don't change covers on existing edition. We absolutely do not change covers simply for the fact because it look ugly or doesn't help sales or whatever. The times that we do is when the cover is inaccurate or we found a higher quality image for replacement. Goodreads is a book-cataloging website with an ability to sell ebooks, not a book-selling store that catalog books as a side feature.

That cover I plead people not to change is the accurate cover for that edition with that ASIN. Sorry if it bums you out. Moreover, we Librarians cannot control how normal users add edition or review which edition. What we Librarians do is keeping book records accurate. For that edition, I did just that.

220 Please delete this edition: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13... It is a duplicate of the 1st edition. Yes, the edition I want deleted has a different cover than the 1st edition it is duplicating but it is NOT an alternate cover edition. Someone simply took the cover from the 2nd Edition and slap on it there.
