Jessica Bell (jessica_bell) | 60 comments Hi there,

This book has 108 contributors, is there any way they can all be added? It's so sad that some people get to have it on their list and others don't. I think they should all be entitled to be listed. Please tell me there's a way to do this. You can see the full list of contributors here: http://www.vineleavesliteraryjournal....

Best wishes,
Jessica

❂ Jennifer  (jennevans) | 871 comments Unfortunately for works like these, 50 is the limit in the DB. What we do in cases where there are more than 50, is list the authors in the description. It's not ideal, but it's better than no credit.


Jessica Bell (jessica_bell) | 60 comments Okay ... is it possible to replace some of the photographers I have listed with some other names. When I try to delete, it says error. Perhaps I'm not allowed to do that as I'm not a librarian?

❂ Jennifer  (jennevans) | 871 comments I can remove the photographer's for you - are you an author of the work?

I've just looked at the record - you've listed everyone as a contributor so I can't tell who is a photographer and who isn't...


Jessica Bell (jessica_bell) | 60 comments I'm the editor. Thank you. Shall I send you a list in here? Or in a personal message?

❂ Jennifer  (jennevans) | 871 comments You can post it here - that way if I can't get it done, one of the other librarians can pick it up. :)


Jessica Bell (jessica_bell) | 60 comments okay great, thanks so much!

Here are the names I'd like removed. I've included a few authors which don't have profiles so I can add some others that do:

Daniel Davis
J.R McRae
Janice Phelps Williams
Amie McCracken
Allen Taft
Amanda Forbes Silva
A.J Huffman
Benjamin Nash
Cassandra J Hubrich
Christina Tang-Bernas
Frank Sloan

❂ Jennifer  (jennevans) | 871 comments Ok, I've removed the names above. I'm not sure, but you may not be able to edit again - I'm a bit unclear on what GR author's can and cannot edit after the initial add of a book. So if you have any difficulties, just let me know. :)


Jessica Bell (jessica_bell) | 60 comments Okay, thank you so much!

❂ Jennifer  (jennevans) | 871 comments You are welcome. :)


Jessica Bell (jessica_bell) | 60 comments Shit! LOL I spelled a name wrong. Sorry. Can you please change Vicki Ellis to Vicky Ellis? So sorry ...


message 13: by ❂ Jennifer (new)

❂ Jennifer  (jennevans) | 871 comments Ok, both are fixed. Jim Murdoch is listed here on GR as Jim^^Murdoch (where ^ is a space) to disambiguate him from the other Jim Murdoch (and any other Jim Murdoch's out there writing books). :)


Jessica Bell (jessica_bell) | 60 comments ha. Okay. Thank you so much sorry for the hassle!
