Kerry Donovan (kerryjdonovan) | 22 comments Hi there,

I've just noticed that my two most recent books have been added and not attributed to my author profile, they are just attached to this: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show....

If they can both please be attached to my author profile (
https://www.goodreads.com/kerryjdonovan ) it would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Kerry

☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6177 comments as you're a GR author and there are followers on that profile without the period staff must merge that.
I'll ask for a merge in the thread (https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...) for it and will not move the books because staff like us left them on the profile for easier checking the merge the correct profile :)
The books will be moved automatically to your profile when profiles are merged

Kerry Donovan (kerryjdonovan) | 22 comments Hi, just checking on this request as the books are still attached to the "other" me.

Thanks,
Kerry


☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6177 comments ehm no, they aren't ... the profile you had linked to as non GR author profile doesn't exist anymore (and staff said the merge was done)
Is there a third profile?

Kerry Donovan (kerryjdonovan) | 22 comments Awesome, thanks! They did when I posted my Q - I refreshed the page and checked first :-)

Anyway, someone has uploaded the full DLDT boxset and again attributed to another "me" :https://www.goodreads.com/author/show..., so if this could also be fixed it would great.

Is there a way to stop this happening? Obviously I don't like taking up people's time with these constant requests, that I can't do anything about.

Cheers,
Kerry

#10 Moved to your profile. Unfortunately, the only way to prevent this from happening is to add editions before they get imported; when the bots import them, they'll automatically go to the default profile. If it does happen again, just post in a new thread; a librarian will be happy to help you get it moved.
