220 I'd also suggest asking the author - usually they will comply. You can also ask them to sign up too :)

3917 We'll put that on the list to add. We constrained it to postal code an country because it would be fun to search by those in the future.

220 Michael is right - we appreciate the friendly reminders :)

220 Thanks Michael - all fixed now!

220 Yikes that didn't work at all - will roll back right away :)

220 Good catch Michael! It took me 10 minutes to figure out what you meant, but I think I found it. Fix will be out in the next release (tomorrow night).

220 Found & fixed it! Sorry it took so long.

220 If a book has been entered by hand and there is an official version (ie one with an ISBN), it is proper to merge it after combining.
220 Those appear to both be working now - any other examples of things not working?
220 Ahh - there was another backend change in the last release that accounted for this, and its fixed now.

Tried doing an OR search, but couldn't make it work easily - sorry :(

220 Hopefully, one day we will be able to have multiple covers for 1 ISBN, as it seems this issue is becoming more common.

Noted :)
220 Sorry - was related to this mornings release - all fixed now!
Covers vanished? (28 new)

220 Our release is live and now all member photos and most book covers are served from a Goodreads.com domain. Hope that helps!

220 Very strange. Many of our images come from Amazon as we use their S3 storage system to keep our images. Perhaps the ad blockers think that those are ads? We'll see if a few DNS tricks can't fix that.

3917 I'm glad everyone agrees that that field might be useful! We'll try to make it more flexible next time we tweak the book records.

220 Merged the two books in message 1.

The one in message two looks legit though - it has an ISBN and the source is Amazon.

220 That is a neat suggestion! We'll put on our todo list adding a comment when you edit an author or book, so it can go into the change log.

220 Starting tomorrow, the separate links will use ajax and won't cause the page to reload so it will be really easy to separate a bunch of items at once!
Apr 07, 2008 07:47PM

220 All merged!

220 Sounds like maybe we need a 'not a book' flag for books?
