Richard Warren | 5 comments I have added 15 books of my own to Goodreads, all linked to my author-profile.
Since then, over 600 books have been added to Goodreads, all being attributed falsely to my profile.
I assume that this mis-attribution is a general problem, and it seems to be causing chaos. I do not have the privileges or time to edit the other people's books' details. Any comments?

Dobby (dobby0390) | 4944 comments It appears that you were given the default "Richard Warren" profile, so your titles are mixed in with his.

I see 25 distinct works on your author list. If you will list the 10 books that are not yours, a librarian can move them to another profile.

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments Hi Richard,
I fixed your profile and corrected your listings in line with Goodreads policy.

To avoid the issue in the future I would strongly recommend to contact support and ask them to move you to a non-default profile.
