Conrad | 2 comments I noticed that even though the only difference between the various editions of The Female Man by Joanna Russ is the cover, and those editions have been combined, they have wildly different average ratings. Is this really as it should be? If we're going to combine editions, shouldn't we aggregate all of the ratings across editions, too? (And is this the place to discuss it, or should I take this to Feedback?)

Hey Conrad,

Thats probably more of a feedback issue. If you view the book pages for the various editions, the average rating and all other stats are combined. However, in some places (like the search results page), we still show individual editions with their own average rating. Its something we're working on, but we aren't there yet.
