G.S. Jennsen (gs_jennsen) | 44 comments Please merge this author profile, which wasn't created by me (likely a reader adding Galaxy Chronicles): https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... into my actual author profile: G.S. Jennsen.

Of the two books listed on the shell profile, a different edition of Galaxy Chronicles is correctly attributed to me, but Crime & Punishment isn't showing up on my real profile, as it was mistakenly linked to the shell profile.

Thank you!

Azhar (ai_square) | 2 comments Hi. The cover designer on this book (M. Faiz Syahmi) https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3... is supposed to be this author https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Please help to merge the author. Thank you Goodreads!

Abcdarian | 19802 comments Goodreads doesn't list cover designers anyway, so deleted. I suspect the editor and consultant may also need deletion, but I leave that decision for someone else.

Azhar (ai_square) | 2 comments I work with the publisher and the details you've just deleted was actually done by your colleague whom I asked for help earlier through support email. Actually, the role of consultant, editor, and cover designer is part of our ways cataloging the books that we've published. I hope that you can help to reinsert the info because that's the way we've been adding the books that we publish. After all, there has been always the option to put in the role although we're not actually the book author. I hope you guys can reconsider this because some of us are Goodreads author too.

lethe | 13747 comments Cover designers, (copy) editors and consultants should not be added to the book page on Goodreads though. It is possible that the employee was not aware of that. See https://www.goodreads.com/help/librar... under 'add new authors'.
