Rosemary | 44 comments I noticed when looking at a friend's shelves that if I sort alphabetically by author, this author https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... is appearing before A.

[edited out a link to specific user's shelves as I see that is not allowed]

Goodreads Author so I cannot edit.

Moloch | 2707 comments It's usually a mistake in the way the "sort by author" field is filled: since this is a Goodreads Author, librarians can't help you, and you need to contact staff here https://www.goodreads.com/about/conta...

They can fix the problem, but explain it carefully, I have noticed that support staff doesn't always understand well librarians stuff (in a similar case I was told that I could also ask a librarian for that but, as you know, librarians can't edit Goodreads Author profiles).

Rosemary | 44 comments Thanks, guys. I've posted in the thread Lachgas linked to, in the feedback group.


☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6177 comments In case you come across that on a non GR profile check if the sort by field has a capitalized letter - because that's what causes that problem. (they have to be lower case always in that field)

Is also mentioned somewhere in that thread but I just thought might be interesting for you :)
