Is not and never was a series. It's an imprint. Some librarians understood that and tried to follow the manual by utilizing the edition field to designate the imprint. Others clearly did not. A user asked for the series numbering to be corrected since the series isn't in the correct order, which is when I pointed out it's not even a series.

lethe | 13731 comments I have flagged the creation of the series, which was done (and added to) by a GR author (how is that even possible!?).

Not deleted it yet, because I don't know if Support will be able to check up on it if the series is gone.

Yes. The edit remains in the log, so the flag stays too.

lethe | 13731 comments Thanks. When I've moved them to the edition field (many of them are already done), I'll delete the series.

message 7: by Tal (new)

Tal (taliesien) quick question, is this a caching issue or something that still needs title clean up?

Taylor Maid (Dreamspun Desires Book 6) when it was actually the 5th book in the collection


message 8: by lethe (last edited Oct 16, 2016 04:15PM) (new)

lethe | 13731 comments The latter. I hadn't checked all editions, just the ebooks on the series page (which didn't have the collection title added to the title field).

(Asked for a merger of a duplicate Audible edition of Undercover Boyfriend in the delete thread.)

Beth Michele (bethmichelewriter) | 30 comments Hello!

These two books are listed as a series, when in fact, they are standalones. I had contacted Amazon about the same issue a while back but they hadn't changed it. The (Finding Love) should be deleted as they are standalones.

Can you help with this? Thanks in advance!

Best,

I figured I'd wait at least a week before I asked. It was a long list, even if it was piddly stuff. ;-)

TIA


message 17: by lethe (new)

lethe | 13731 comments Yes, and I'm checking all the editions, not just the links you posted :-)


Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) https://www.goodreads.com/series/1809... isn't a series, it's a publisher imprint/collection of reissues of some classic science fiction books that otherwise have nothing to do with each other (not even a shared "universe" or original publisher).
