Thanks , I will flag it and add a librarian note .
I already separated them before and made the series . so I have to repeat that or is thete a way to restore what I did .
For the two names order , Okay .
This series has three novels , they are no longer sold as three in Arabic - they are one now - and also in Spanish , but other translation no , actually there is only English translation for the first part (novel) , I fixed this before but all books were merged again by anther Librarian , is there a way to undo this merge or should I do it all over again ?https://www.goodreads.com/series/1491...
Thanks ! if so .... long way back ...
I am not talking about these cases in particular and of course I am not mocking , if someone is Sabotaging authors' pages by deleting or merging ,stuff members may not be able to find out who ?
There was also an English page for this authorhttps://www.goodreads.com/author/show...
Can someone tell me please how to identify from the Librarian Edits who did it , I feel like I am missing something .
I checked again , I can not reach that information :( Thanks
No , I do not know who did it and I do not understand why I can not find that from the "Librarian Edits " , most books now have the Arabic name twice , so he merged both pages ?
This Author English page was deleted or merged with the Arabic one , I started a new English one and I will be working on it , I need to know who deleted it in the first place to contact him so we can avoid more deleted pages .https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...
I can not find that in the Librarian Editshttps://www.goodreads.com/author/edit...
Any news about an update to merge all authors' pages in one ?

Obviously I don't have to work on the Arabic stuff anymore! You seem to have it covered."
I am glad there is a super librarian who can speak Arabic :)
Just for the record I was amazed how she got it so cleverly .
hats up to you Banjomike :D
By the way I see that "Bloomsbury Qatar Foundation" is featuring the paperback edition (same isbn as paperback and e-book cover )http://www.bqfp.com.qa/books-en/colle...
Thanks Traveling Diva .
I am aware of Amazon late problems with goodreads , I wanted just to refer to my confusion resources .
Thanks for the publisher link , today I can see that the e-book has a new isbnhttp://www.bloomsbury.com/uk/throwing...
So I will add both editions that both will be released on 22-11-2012
Thanks again for your help :)

Thanks , I will check the right thing and do it .
I found this link http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/12...
still don't know how it can be done , tips are discussing merging books.(will it be done book by book ?)

If so (I will check and be absolutely sure first), What is the right way to merge them ?
The problem I am facing is that these parts were added to Goodreads as independent books and were rated and reviewed by members , and lately I was informed that they are actually set / sets of the book , there is no fixed system related to how the book is divided and that can differ from a publisher to anther (yet all on Goodreads are 6 parts) , also I can't reach any ISBNs .
**So was the series the best solution ? or should the book transformed into sets instead of parts?

In either case, please do not add a new series just because the language is different. The series already exists: http://www.g..."
Sorry for the confusion , I am not talking about " story of civilization" , I am talking about the book above and the series I made for :http://www.goodreads.com/series/88732
" story of civilization" was an example to imitate
anther question that I need to make sure I am on the right path . As I said all these parts are one book , a friend said that actually there is no printable book with the six parts (4000+ pages) , anther said the page numbering continues from a part to part , and may be there is only one ISBN for the whole set .
** So what is more accurate to do : merge the parts as one set as Story of Civilization or keep the series we made ?
Members keep adding it as parts .

As I don't read Arabic, please let me know if anything is incorrect."

the same thing happened with me , no I don't have ISBNs
