Hello wonderful Goodreads Librarians, and happy almost-New-Year!

Due to some site maintenance that will be happening, the combine and separate functions will temporarily be unavailable. This will start the late afternoon of Sunday, December 31, and continue until mid-day Wednesday, January 3 (all times Pacific).

Thanks for your understanding! Check back here for all related updates.

Piers Haslam | 13 comments Hi! It's a little way after midday PT now, so I was just wondering if there is a new estimate for when these features will be re-enabled? I've got this book I've been itching to combine since New Year's Day haha!

Thanks :)

Ah, so that is why the page timed out on me.

Sorry about that! Someone was a bit too excited about combines working again (or many someones, more likely) and overloaded things a bit.

It's back up, but try to avoid any major (over 1000 shelvings) combines or merges for a few days, please.

Yes, please!


☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6172 comments deleting/merge seems to be down in total?
combining works but the merge of the less than 5 ratings duplicate into the one valid edition fails with same error message as was on combine down

Combine/separate and merge all seem to be working for me.

Samantha | 26 comments Is combine down again? I was trying to combine a book that I had accidentally made a duplicate of when I added it and it just takes me to the author's page instead of the page with checkmarks that I see when I googled how to do this.


☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6172 comments you don't seem to be a librarian Samantha so you can't combine

☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6172 comments Everyone can change details of a book they entered themselves for a short period of time - after that only librarians can.

Here's the Librarian Manual with all the rules librarians have to follow

In case you want us something to combine you can open a new thread in the "Book Issues" folder for it.

Richard (smashed-rat-on-press) | 37 comments I'd been holding off one "combine" update until the green light. Just worked fine for me today.

Hope Callaghan (hopecallaghan) | 3 comments Hello,

I'm an author and was trying to combine editions and I accidently combined 12 of my books. I've tried to separate them, but it seems it's not working. Can anyone help please?

Thank you,
Hope
