Antonomasia | 509 comments Tried this a few times today and the system can't manage it - always goes to the Alice overcapacity page. Do these just have to be left?

The quotes were from stray profiles I merged, and in two cases were too similar for it to be possible to edit the author names on the quote pages, so they should be picked up by the system.

One was the bit from Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch about the Best of Queen tapes in cars
One was something from Elena Ferrante's My Brilliant Friend about a Don Achille

The final one needs to be done by someone with access to a copy of Joyce Carol Oates' A Book of American Martyrs as there are two quotes with very similar, but not identical wording, so one must be a paraphrase:

Antonomasia | 509 comments Is it difficult to add quotes on mobile? (never tried)
Been off GR for a year and seeing a lot of author profiles now that seem to have been created by users adding quotes - author name is real author name plus book title, and only other content on profile is one or two quotes. This didn't used to be a big thing even in Spring 2017. Wonder what's caused it.
