Got 761, 762.

Are you sure about 763? The first link doesn't want to cooperate.


Melody (runningtune) | 5269 comments It was there a minute ago. But not there now. Don't know. It was Lacey Anne Frye without the hyphen

Weird. There is no author profile with that name (I tried a merge and it just edited).

Melody (runningtune) | 5269 comments I think it may have been completely empty though. The others had fans attached - I didn't see anything with her - but put it here anyway just in case.

But the one that's left isn't a GR author?


Melody (runningtune) | 5269 comments Ah! I bet I made a mistake (since she co-authored with the other Goodreads' authors) and just THOUGHT she was at GR author and some other librarian merged them.

Got 770. Could you paste the full URLs next time, please?


Jared (wisthrop) | 108 comments Sorry about the rivka. I'm a little rusty on the merging. :) Will do next time

Adam Nicolai | 2 comments Hi, I am a GR author who currently has two profiles out there.

"Adam J. Nicolai" (with a period) is linked to my Kindle edition and has been extensively updated with photo, blog feed, etc. However, it also states "Adam J. Nicolai hasn't written any books" and I'm not sure why that would be the case.
http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

"Adam J Nicolai" (no period) is linked to my paperback edition and doesn't appear to be a GR Author profile, but it DOES state that I've written a book ("Alex", which is correct).

http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

Is there anyway to get the non-GR profile removed, and the GR profile properly connected to both the paperback and kindle editions of my novel, Alex?

Kindle url: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13...

Paperback url: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13...

Thank you so much. Really appreciate the work you do here!

- Adam


❂ Jennifer (reviews on BookLikes) (jennevans) | 871 comments It seems someone has already fixed it - when I click on your paperback URL it shows the author as now being Adam J. Nicolai and your kindle version shows up under other Editions.


Paula (Paulaan) | 4562 comments Re 783 Neither where GR authors so got it

Re 782 - Not sure how they did it since the author on the kindle edition still appears to have no dot. Leaving for rivka to merge

Mark Lawrence (MarkLawrence) | 55 comments Hello. My author profile (Mark Lawrence) seems to have come adrift of my book (Prince of Thorns). I still see information relating to my upcoming book (King of Thorns) and some partial info relating to one edition of Prince of Thorns. Any help reuniting these pieces would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Mark


Melody (runningtune) | 5269 comments There is another author named Mark Lawrence and he is listed as Mark^Lawrence. You are Mark^^Lawrence with 2 spaces. I moved your books to your profile. However, I can't move http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/12... this edition since it came from Amazon and when I try to edit it I get a page asking me to verify the edition exists. I will let rivka see what she can do.


Paula (Paulaan) | 4562 comments Re 786 - Rescued it - from Worldcat and assigned to correct profile


Melody (runningtune) | 5269 comments So how do we do that, Paula?


Melody (runningtune) | 5269 comments Never mind. Figured it out.

Got 780 and 781.


Rangitha Kuruppu | 1 comments This is a popular Sri Lankan author that needs a merger. The titles are in Sinhalese for Martin Wickramasinghe.

http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...
http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

The former is the more prominent profile.

Jim | 94 comments This is about UN-merging two authors. I thought it best to post here.

David Vogel profile has books by two authors of the same name - one dead, one alive

http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

Some basic disambiguation info can be found via this wikipedia page

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Vogel

I'm not an experienced enough librarian to fix this on my own and hope that someone can untangle this issue.

Thank you!


Paula (Paulaan) | 4562 comments Disambiguated to 3 David Vogels

Please don't. That's not what this thread is for.

Got 796.


Jonathan (JonathanDAllen) | 5 comments Someone changed the author of my book The Kayson Cycle and removed it from my profile. (http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/12...)

The author needs to be fixed, and the resulting profile of "Joanthan D Allen" (http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...)

Needs to be merged with my author profile (http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...).

Thank you!
