New thread.

Reminder: Please only list authors in this topic who need to be merged by a GR staff member. That is, when one of the profiles has been claimed by the GR-member author.

Do not list authors for disambiguation, authors who are deceased, or authors needing merging where neither profile has been claimed.

Posts that do not belong in this thread may be deleted.

Also note: Blank profiles (no books, fans, quotes, etc.) will not be merged. They will be left for the cleanup script.

Banjomike | 5530 comments This is an almost repeat (#943 in the last thread). The author has added some more quotes but again she insists on spelling her name wrong.

Banjomike | 5530 comments The author profile is Carol Ann Browne:
http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

but the only book on it has Carol A. Browne on the title page and copyright page. There doesn't seem to be an author name on the cover. Visible on the 'look inside' option.

It is also downloadable from the Goodreads book page.

Also, how about changing the message #1 reminder to include Goodreads author name editing & renaming.

If possible, fix the "influences" field in her profile too: as they are now (C S Lewis, Rowling J. K., J. R. R. Tolkien), they don't link to the correct pages.

D. Peach | 16 comments My books are Myths of the Mirror and The Melding of Aeris. I'd like them both to show up on my profile.

I've added a cover to The Melding of Aeris. The books will be on your profile page when the staff have sorted out the multiple profile business.

P.M. | 1 comments Somebody added the new edition of my Maggie Ryan mystery REHEARSAL FOR MURDER to Goodreads under the wrong name (P M Carlson, no periods). I added it to my Goodreads author profile page P.M. Carlson, BUT I can't get the ISBN for the new edition onto my page because it's assigned to the wrong-name page, and of course I can't delete the wrong-name page (I'm not a superlibrarian).
Help!

I don't make that sort of edits to Goodreads Author profiles unless the author requests it.

no books, but one fan and a quote. The fan has shelved books by the Goodreads author but she has 'fanned' the wrong profile.

This isn't a merge request -- but I couldn't find the topic to fix issues with author names. The author has two spaces between the first and last name. It's a claimed GR profile, so not sure if you can fix it?

Both her books published as L.A. Wright, one currently on L.A. Wright profile, other on Laura Ann. Awaiting author confirmation if other book on L.A. Wright is also hers.

It's listed as her work on her author site.

Anneque Malchien (annequegmalchien) | 3 comments Please merge:
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...
and
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...
This is me. I'd really like them under Anneque G. Malchien, if that's possible. My author account is under the name Anneque Malchien. Is that possible then to have the merge under the different name and still have access?
Thank you!
