Dan | 13 comments I am unable to add a third author as a translator to this record. Does anyone know why?

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments Is the translator name similar to one of the listed names?

It has a name in common: Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye, and Jampa Thaye. (They're different individuals of course.)

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments You need to add the name as JampaThaye (without space, and than edit the name. The system prevents for similar names to be added directly.

Dan | 13 comments Ok thanks.

Dan | 13 comments It won't let me edit it! From the new author page it tells me I'm trying to edit the data of a Goodreads author, from the book data page it doesn't change it.

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments I corrected it, but here's how you do it:
- go to the edition edit page
- click edit next to the name you want to change
- change it
- click save next to the changed name

You need to click the small save button on the line where the author is, then save the whole book record.
