Ingrid (missplaced) | 13 comments Hi!
I've found someone ignored the librarian note on https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1... and merged with two duplicate editions (ebook and Kindle). I've tried to separate them and delete the duplicates, but only superlibrarians can do it.
The duplicates are:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

The paperback new edition (not to merge with the first hardcover) and Kindle + ebook that must remain are https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

Thanks!

the editions for merging should be combined with the editions to be merged to and separated from the rest.

Ingrid (missplaced) | 13 comments Hi Olvia!

The "good" editions are already merged. The duplicates that should be deleted are:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

Thank you! :)

Merged = complete deletion of a record

I think when you are saying "merge" you mean combine?

Ingrid (missplaced) | 13 comments Ooooooooooooook, now I get it. Sorry for the misunderstanding :/
Now I've combined the two versions to delete!

Thanks, Emy!

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments no, the ASIN IS duplicated in ISBN field, so these two should be combined with each other and ONLY each other for merging
the same goes for other edition that needs to be merged

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments Ingrid,
I will recombine them as they are suppose to be and let you have a look before I'll do the merge

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments Ingrid,
these are correctly combined editions for merging:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...
- edition with ASIN in ISBN field will be merged to the edition with the correct ASIN

and
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...
- edition with turncate ISBN will be merged to edition with full ISBN

Please let me know when you'll have a chance to have a look and I will do the merge.
Thanks
