message 1: by Xie (new)

Xie Kitchen (xiekitchen) | 2 comments There are 3 pages for Geneviève Castrée -
1. Geneviève Castrée
2. Genevieve Castree
3. Geneviève Castrée

All are the same author, I suggest #2 & 3 being merged with #1.

Since there are no books, quotes, etc. listed under the first profile, it will be automatically deleted at some point.

Dana (satinsheetdiva) | 2 comments I'm listed as both Dana Myles and Dana Ellington Myles (curse of the married last name change). I'd like my Author's profile to be under Dana Ellington with all of the books listed there.

Thank you!

message 10: by Anma (new)

Anma Natsu (anmanatsu) | 17 comments I just noticed Justin Maccumber is listed twice

His official profile is: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

The older duplicate: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

With them separate, some of his books have split listings but the editions can't be combined because of the split in author.

Thank you

Abcdarian | 19392 comments #10: Author merge has been requested. I moved some of the books & combined them.

K.M. Breakey (kmbreakey) | 2 comments Hi there, the correct profile page for author K.M. Breakey is:

https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

I noticed the following duplicate author profile (with 1 book only and no ratings/reviews):

https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Possible to get this 2nd (mostly empty) profile removed? Thanks!!!

Cheers,
KM.

Melanie (mvalente89) | 1760 comments #12 Book moved. The empty profile will be deleted by the cleanup script.

message 15: by Sameer (new)

Sameer (sameeru) | 9 comments May I please make a request ? There are two Entries for Barrett Tillman

#1 - https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

#2 - https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Profile #1 is correct. The two books listed under Profile 2 should be merged into profile 1 and profile 2 needs to be deleted.

Ivonne (natalyt96) | 5 comments Hello, I noticed a duplicated profile with Víctor de Currea-Lugo.

The real author is: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

And there is another: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

How can I solve it or could you help me with this?

Thanks for your comments.

Profiles merged.
For the future requests please open a new thread rather than bumping one of the old ones.
