Donna Davis I have a DRC for a novel that's coming out in August, but the system won't let me add it or vote for it:

You may need to go to the librarians thread for this. I am a librarian and would assist if I could, but I'm not a Goodreads employeee. If you go to the librarians thread, you can seek assistance from a super-librarian if none respond to you here.

Donna Davis Superlibrarians, I am trying to add the latest novel by James Lee Burke, which comes out in August:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

The system tells me it isn't a 2016 title, but that's incorrect. I have a DRC and it's not out in any form, anywhere yet.

Help?

I checked to see why you are unable to add the title you chose, and the system says it was not first published in 2016. If this is incorrect and this title has never, in any form, been published before this year, you should take your concern to the librarians' thread, where you can reach actual Goodreads employees. These lists are supervised by volunteer librarians like me, and we have limited power.

Bogi Takács Thank you so much for looking into this! All editions seem to have been published in 2016, but I can go there and ask.

Donna Davis Bogi wrote: "Thank you so much for looking into this! All editions seem to have been published in 2016, but I can go there and ask."

One thing I do know is that there are issues with pub dates and this list. I've tried, for example, to add The Tea Planter's Wife, a title with a major publishing house, plenty of promotion, definitely published for the first time this year...and yet I get this message. What the heck?

I don't make a lot of noise, because the scuttlebutt is that Amazon considers these democratic lists to be a pain, and now and then there's discussion of eliminating all of them and going to closed lists that are best sellers, or Amazon employees' favorites, etc, so then no one would be able to add titles and the lists would be little more than a marketing tool for the big A. So unless I am deeply disturbed, I stay quiet. But that's me.


message 14: by jjdigcam (last edited Nov 02, 2016 01:19PM) (new)

jjdigcam Interesting comment about Amazon, I hope it is not true. Although I am an avid Amazon fan. This is the only list that I have had trouble posting to. Sometime after I listed my book in the comments section they made it available to vote for. See comment #3. Please excuse the danglers :) JoAnn


message 15: by Deborah (new)

Deborah I haven't tested it, but I'm assuming that these date restricted lists require an original title and original published date - because that was the issue with the goodreads choice awards write in entries.

These are fields that are no longer auto populate and don't normally show to non-librarians. Any librarian can populate these fields - they are at the very bottom of the edit screen. If there are multiple editions of a book, use the date of the earliest edition. Enter the book title in the original title field.

You're welcome!

The write-in round of the Goodreads Choice Awards was a mess this year because those two fields are blank on many new books and since most people can't even see those fields, they didn't know what the problem was.

Checking this out...do I click on "edit details"?

So, I clicked on "Being a Dog: Following the Dog Into a World of Smell, by Alexandra Horowitz". Our list says this title wasn't published this year, but my research says it has never been published anywhere ever, apart from October 4. I click on "edit details" and a page shows up. The top half is accurate, but there are blank spaces on the bottom. Do I fill one of those in? I fear to rush in blindly and screw up the database, but I would like to add the title, and I'd like to know how to correct the problem.

Thank you Deborah. I appreciate your patience!


message 19: by [deleted user] (new)

Every year I try to check the lists of best of... and select some books for a possible reading list. Finally this year I made it. I am a very promiscuous reader so I just took everything and I will remove later what I don't find interesting.

Consider making a new listopia with your titles. This section is usually used for technical issues, such as misplaced books or problems entering books. When you place these lengthy entries here, it makes it harder for volunteer librarians to do list upkeep. Thanks.

Sadly, it's the original date. This is why we are unable to post English language books that came out in a different English-speaking nation prior to our own.

Thanks! At least you can still add it to lists based on the original date.
I've read a number of books in German that later got translated and wasn't sure where to put them as they might be very new to the English speaking world, but old to Germans.
