Epickkasten | 9 comments So I've found at least 4 different English edition books that have Arabic translators added in the metadata. They're not supposed to be there!

Example 1: https://www.goodreads.com/book/edit/2...

Example 2: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/7...

Please advise.


☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6188 comments There is a bug in the system (reported that in june as it was first mentioned here in group by someone and got info "yes, it's a bug, we're working on it) that causes the translators/narrators getting moved to the default edition if you merge.
If you do that correct (only merge really same editions) that doesn't hurt - but if someone doesn't some misplaced narrators/translators are on a totally wrong edition.

(I didn't look in the log yet, so it might be possible that someone added it by hand but that bug was my first thought)
