For me, it is displaying correctly, but there is still an author profile with the name the wrong way around.

I would think the clean up script would get rid of the profile, but maybe another librarian could weigh in on that. :)

Abcdarian | 23355 comments Clean up script is supposed to, but we have no idea how often it runs; things can hang around a long time. The book is no longer on that profile, that's the main thing.

Abcdarian | 23355 comments You can check by clicking the link for the author's books. The author profile page is slow to change.

The cleanup script is not running and hasn't been running for many many months.

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments I'm just wondering.
Wouldn't it work if we would merge empty profiles to NOT A BOOK?

Yes, you can get empty profiles removed if you merge into another profile. I think it doesn't matter which one, as long as there are no books/followers, etc.


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 7148 comments Also, support has said if you report to them they will delete the empty profile.

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments Changing to NOT A BOOK (or any other) seems to be much quicker way if it's allowed.

Michael Korleone (michaelkorleone) | 3881 comments I usually merge into Various if the profile doesn't have quotes/followers/books

Abcdarian | 23355 comments I've been doing that sometimes, once I'm sure there are no links, followers, quotes, or anything else ... whatever anything else could be. :-)

Philip (burnnerman) | 5913 comments I just merged it with the real profile. So it no longer exists.
