☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 7222 comments no need to merge because there are no followers.
but the accent in your claimed profile seems to be wrong according to your cover of Happiness Laboraty ...
on the cover it's ´ and in your profile it's ` (this are different author names on GR)

I can't see if and which accent you use on that orange cover (the pic is too small for my eyes) so I won't move it because if there is another like ' for example that would be a different profile

Urfa `Ainy (urfaqurrotaainy) | 2 comments ok. could you help me edit the author name into the same accent? (because I cant)
It's not about the follower. it's about the books. both are the same person, but the books are in different profile.


☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 7222 comments no, I can't help you with that (Librarians aren't able to edit anything on GR author profiles) you have to contact support for that https://www.goodreads.com/about/conta...

Yes I understand it's about the book - it just makes a difference for librarians if there is a follower on a non claimed profile (because that must be really merged by staff then, otherwise every librarian can just move the book).

I would have moved it to your profile, but as said I'm feeling uncertain with it because I can just not see (my vision is bad so nothing that has to do something with you) if or which accent is there - and that would eventually make a different profile (GR system is really sensitive with other signs, even another capitalization would create a different profile).

So I only can ask you for some patience until someone with better vision takes over :)

lethe | 14159 comments Urfa, what is the correct spelling of your name (in particular the accent)?

@Lachgas, it's not your eyes. I can't see any accent on that orange cover.
