New thread.

Reminder: Please only list authors in this topic who need to be merged by a GR staff member. That is, when one of the profiles has been claimed by the GR-member author.

Do not list authors for disambiguation, authors who are deceased, or authors needing merging where neither profile has been claimed.

Posts that do not belong in this thread may be deleted.

Also note: Blank profiles (no books, fans, quotes, etc.) will not be merged. They will be left for the cleanup script.

Please only post the links, and -- if necessary -- additional information we need to understand the reason for the request. Examples of additional information that is useful and fine to include: a link to the author's official website showing all the books in question (especially if they have a common name); note that the books all have [name] on the covers; explanation of why they should be combined even though they are two distinct genres, etc.

Please do not editorialize, comment on other users' behavior, etc. If your request doesn't make sense without such comments, please use the contact link instead of posting in this thread.

Posts that contain such editorializing will be deleted. If you are not sure whether your additional information falls under this criteria, please use the contact link instead of posting in this thread.

Melinda R. Cordell - GR Profile, that has 2 spaces before initial, that should be fixed.

Looks like there is only one person with the name, so should be no extra spaces.

(Not sure if the E. is needed; doesn't seem to be on her books.)

Kari Kilgore (karikilgore) | 4 comments Hi there, hope I'm posting in the right place.

I seem to have two author profiles: the one I claimed and another one with most of my books. Can someone please merge these? My website shows all my books so far. https://www.karikilgore.com/books/

Another reason I'm posting here is I tried to merge editions of the books that are on my claimed profile and failed miserably. Those will need to be fixed as well. Please let me know if you need more information or if I need to post that elsewhere.

Thank you so much, and have a great week!

Kari Kilgore

Please provide links to the two profiles on Goodreads.

One issue is that at least some of your books have Kari Anne Kilgore on the cover. We can merge the profiles and put all your books under Kari Anne Kilgore, if that works for you.

Kari Kilgore (karikilgore) | 4 comments Hi Rivka.

Those are old covers, which I've already updated on all the store sites. I'd be happy to update them directly on GoodReads, but I don't know how. My website has the current covers. https://www.karikilgore.com/books/

All my books are under Kari Kilgore now in every outlet. Please merge them under Kari Kilgore.

Thanks!

Kari, Goodreads does not delete old covers or pen-names. However, your claimed profile can be set to Kari Kilgore, and all works originally published under Kari Anne Kilgore will have that listed first and Kari Kilgore listed second.

This is really off-topic for this thread, so please start a new thread if you have additional questions.

Emy (emypt) | 5038 comments Please move Goodreads Author Michael Dillon to be the 2^ profile. I can then move the Michael Dillon disambiguation profile back to 1^.

Why? He meets the notability requirement, regardless of having published works on the site.
