Z-squared | 8580 comments I marked this as NOT A BOOK, but I noticed an awful lot of people have shelved it. Should I put it back?

Emy (emypt) | 5022 comments My suspicion is that it's mostly mis-adding. I can see one review that specifies it's for the cards - if you can see more though...

If it's a mistaken review add, I;m thinking it would be better to merge into the main title and then re-add the ISBN to NAB it. My thoughts based on same principle as for prepacks and films.

Just opinion though...

Z-squared | 8580 comments ... with the caveat that i'm going to create a separate edition with that isbn marked NOT A BOOK to keep it from being re-added.

If an item meets NAB guidelines, that's where it belongs, regardless of how many users have shelved it.

However, in this case it is likely they really meant the book, so I will merge the cards (which actually have about 70 shelvings) and NAB them.

Edit: Except y'all have already done so. Excellent!
