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.

Shoney K. (shoneyk) | 3 comments I'm having a problem with linking two of my books to me. I noticed that it's attached to a profile similar to mine. The names are smelled the same but the K has an (.) and it's not allowing me to claim my books. The two books I'm trying to claim is For The Love of Money by Shoney K and The Loyal Ones by Shoney K & Aleta Williams. My profile is Shoney K not Shoney K.

Yes these are the profiles I'm speaking in reference to. All books should be under Shoney K not Shoney K(.) And because of the (.) I'm not able to claim my books.

Unfortunately, per the Librarian Manual, if an author uses initials in their name, the initials need to be marked with a period. In this case, you will have to be listed as "Shoney K."
