message 1: by Emily (new)

Emily the point of lists is to make it public and allow others to vote and add books. if you want a personal list, make a new bookshelf


message 2: by jacky (new)

jacky I happen to disagree. I think it is okay to make a set list of books, be them favorites or some other set, and ask others not to add to it so that one can see how those book rank.

What are youz all talking about ?


message 5: by Bettie (new)

Bettie ooops - Many here don't qualify under the list's criteria


message 6: by Abbey (last edited Feb 20, 2012 08:25AM) (new)

Abbey Hi Jacky -
I agree with Bettie - there are LOTS of books here that don't have 100,000 ratings, some nowheres near that number! (there's even one with only 1 rating...). I'd be glad to go in (yes, I'm able to do so) and remove them if you don't have the time. IF this is just a list of your fave books, that's fine by me, but if that's so then you ought to change the criteria for inclusion up at the top of the list, AND the title of the list too.


message 7: by Steven (new)

Steven Harbin I voted for several on the list, but now see that many have less than 100,000 ratings. I just assumed (foolishly, as I know what happens when one assumes) that they wouldn't already be on the list unless they qualified :)
I'll go back and delete my votes for those that have less than 99,999 ratings!


message 8: by Abbey (new)

Abbey oh, boy. Am sorry I took a *closer* look! Found 30 books on the first page that didn't qualify, *97* on the second page, and about 25 on the last page - gave up trying to be exact by then... That's over 150 of 227 books. Think the best fix would be to just change the list title and criteria.


message 9: by jacky (new)

jacky I never named this list that. I made this list a long time ago and labeled just my favorites! I'd forgotten it was even here anymore.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads You want me to remove the ones that don't qualify, Jacky?


message 11: by Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) (last edited Feb 22, 2012 05:50AM) (new)

Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) I especially like "Unknown Book 11650992 by Unknown Author 993" and "Unknown Book 9081879 by Unknown Author 880" ... (both on p. 2 and both, you guessed it, without a single rating.)


message 12: by Ben (new)

Ben Going through the Librarian change log, I think I see what happened. This list was created on July 16th, 2008, and was labelled 'Favorite Books. ' On Apr 11, 2011, it was updated to 'Favorite Books of All Time.' On Dec 31, 2011, it was updated to 'Favorite Books with 100,000 + Ratings.'

The result is what you see here: a mishmash of entries reflecting the changing criteria.

Maybe it should be changed again to 'Random list with no rhyme or reason.' Then everything would fit!


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Good point, Ben. Interesting, too, that none of the changes to the title were made by the lists's actual creator.

So, Jacky, you originally created a list containing just your personal favorites (without (1) on the one hand intending others to add books to the list and (2) on the other hand imposing any other criteria than the books being among your personal favorites), right? If that's so, then if the list should be pruned back to anything, it should be pruned back to what Jacky originally placed on it ...


message 14: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Pruned list to conform to title.

Sorry, but lists are public and not personal. From the listopia instruction page:

"Lists are public and everyone can vote on them, so don't create "Michael's Favorite Robot Books"—instead create "Best Robot Books" and seed it with your favorite books about robots."

Michael: You might make a list and call it "MY favorite robot books, and then, well, list them, right ? Bearing in mind that everyone on GR has a "MY" they are interested in documenting.

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I see everyone's sockdrawer favorite, Isn't It Pretty To Think So? (329 ratings) has hit this one, too.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Let's all pray it never even gets near 100,000 ratings ... not even 1-star ones!

Laura Susanna wrote: "I see everyone's sockdrawer favorite, Isn't It Pretty To Think So? (329 ratings) has hit this one, too."

I think you should report this abuse to GR's team.


message 19: by Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) (last edited Jul 10, 2013 04:09PM) (new)

Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) I did. Though a few more reports along the same lines probably can't hurt ...

(FWIW, I've also deleted it from this list.)


message 20: by Laura (new)

Laura Great job TA!!


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Let's just hope it lasts ...


message 22: by Laura (new)

Laura Go to sleep TA, it's too late!!


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) I did. :) Meanwhile, the page count is down to 28, and it looks like a few of the socks have been pulled. Progress!


message 24: by Laura (new)

Laura Great!!
