Elizabeth (Alaska) | 9427 comments What's with the friend name (abbreviation) in the updates? Is this their login info or part of their email or what?

Hmm what do you mean by "friend name abbreviation"? Can you link to an example or a screenshot?

Elizabeth (Alaska) | 9427 comments I'm not very good at this kind of linking:

This is a cropped shot from an update email. Most, but not all, of my friends have this ( ) in the email, a relatively new phenomenon (but I'm behind in looking at them).

Oh, it looks like it's their username.


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 9427 comments It's not the name that displays when you access their profile.

To clarify, it's the username you use to create a customized profile URL. Like below:

http://www.goodreads.com/lilk13

goes to the same profile.


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 9427 comments So why did this start appearing in the update emails. I can send a screen shot that it did not used to be that way, if you need it. This is new (and annoying).


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 9427 comments This first appeared in emails on 5/15. It did not occur prior to that date.

Okay, we're rolling that change back.


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 9427 comments Ahhhhh, thank you! (I am so easily confused.)
