Lisa | 16 comments oh I couldn't see the option to merge authors :/ thanks anyway :)

Melanti | 761 comments You just change the name to what it's supposed to be and then it'll ask you which profile you want to keep.

A super is only needed if one of the profiles belongs to a Goodreads author.

Only staff can merge GR author profiles, a super can't.

I'm new there. I also wanted to merge these two authors, and I cant manage to find the merge option. Could you please tell me how to do so ?

Melanti | 761 comments You edit the incorrect author profile to show the correct author name and save.

It will then ask you which profile you wish to keep.
