Elizabeth (Alaska) | 6589 comments These two series:

https://www.goodreads.com/series/2150...
https://www.goodreads.com/series/2278... (same books)

need to have a Listopia created, have the series moved to the edition field and series deleted.

Anne ✨ Finds Joy (annefindsjoy) I can work on this...

1) the list is created:
https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/1...

2) the two series were deleted

3) in progress with moving the 'Scientists in the Field' name to the edition field for each book (and each format of the book):
Status: May 17th - 45 books completed so far, 12 more to go

Anne ✨ Finds Joy (annefindsjoy) DONE!

This project is now complete for all 57 books (and all formats) now have 'Scientists in the Field' as the edition, and titles all fixed where needed.


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 6589 comments Thanks, Anne. And so sorry I missed this when you did them nearly a month ago.

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments Here is a romance collection that has a series page:
https://www.goodreads.com/series/2206...

Needs Listopia (there are more books on GR than on the list, ~56 books available) and titles have to be corrected (name of the collection should not be listed in the title field).

Publisher:

Amazon:

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments Clearly a collection of re-prints:
https://www.goodreads.com/series/1261...

Needs Listopia.

Titles to be corrected to remove 'eesti lugu' from the title field.

Graphic novels, no common universe, needs to be turned into a Listopia (only 5 books in the list, don't know if there are more out there).

Marked the list as static so that only librarians can add future books into this list. If you're ok with the list, feel free to delete the series Emy :)

Not a series.
Needs Listopia and then be deleted.

ETA: done


☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6177 comments Usborne Reading Level needs to be made a listopia (and Usborne First Reading can go to the edition field and the level into the description)

Elizabeth (Alaska) | 6589 comments The Year's Best Science Fiction Series is not a valid series according to GR policy. However, it could be a listopia.

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments 2018 Advent Calendar Daily - Warmest Wishes is listed as a series.
Needs to be converted into Listopia
ETA: and '(2018 Advent Calendar Daily - Warmest Wishes)' removed from titles

annob | 1520 comments Is there anyway to create a Listopia list, and then disconnect the list from my user account?

What's holding me back from helping out with this project is having publisher's collections forever mixed in with lists I've created or voted on in the capacity of a reader/normal GR member. Likewise as a Librarian I'm hesitant to simply delete a non-series page, as the information can be useful for readers even though it's been incorrectly placed on a series page.

Hi! I volunteer to list the Akashic Noir Series (without both a list and a series, it's gonna be a nightmare to wade through, they have about 70+ volumes!).

PS. I'm sorry to butt in the thinking process on this thread but why is Akashic series considered for deletion? I've just always believed it was a series, basing on http://www.akashicbooks.com/subject/n... and http://www.thrillingdetective.com/tri... and on Amazon all the volumes are maked as belonging to this series, however, an unnumbered one (https://www.amazon.it/s/ref=nb_sb_nos...). From how I see it, Amazon has the series page under development (https://www.amazon.com/gp/bookseries/...). So, well it looks like it's Amazon and the Worldcat that have overlooked marking this series as series, not GR made the mistake in marking all these books as one...

Because at GR, a series requires either characters or a universe in common. Akashic is all noir, but no characters nor universe is the same in them.

Though, I'm not really seeing that actually stated in the LibMan, I'll take your word for it :) Though, each book is about some city somewhere on our planet, going about its daily life throes via the noirish eyes of its inhabitants. And if it's not a series-creating factor, then every series by Lonely Planet https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... is also not a series, if one follows same logic... Or is it just a criteria for fiction?


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 6589 comments ☘Misericordia☘ ~ The Serendipity Aegis ~ wrote: "And if it's not a series-creating factor, then every series by Lonely Planet "

They may not be, and I haven't looked at them. Non-fiction has some grey areas, too.

Well, pretty much ANY non-fiction series would be also a non-series, if one treats is like the Akashic series. There won't be any characters or a universe (other than our Earth realm) for non-fiction... It might be a good idea to suggest widening the concept of series, intead of listopiaing almanachs.

Anyway, thanks for your explanations, Elizabeth! I'll post here once I list it.

https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/1... List added.

PS. Crap. See this one: https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/2.... Since there was already a partial list on this with people's votes and what was needed, not creating listopia but rather editing an existing one, ahem. Will move extra books to there.
Done now.

Carol She's So Novel꧁꧂  | 4556 comments As discussed in the"Is this a series?" thread this is an imprint not a series.

https://www.goodreads.com/series/1778...

Would someone like to turn into a list?

I'll delete the series in two weeks.

Giving a bump - I'll be deleting the series in a couple of days. :)

Camilla | 237 comments Would somebody be kind enough to create a list of this "series", before it's deleted?

I'm not familiar enough with working with lists to be confident to do it.
