Scott | 21383 comments Done. Not sure what gave you the error, but you can always ask here if something doesn't stick.

I don't know about the metadata as I have never used that aspect of the site.

Please use colons instead of that vertical bar thingy.

Yes. The | symbol can cause a number of issues when used in the various fields of a book record on Goodreads.

Scott | 21383 comments Neither the cover nor the title page have the bar.

That's a nice cover, but it seems more like a graphic design element than formal punctuation.

Goodreads frequently formats book titles differently than the official copyright page and/or Amazon and other sales sites. Series names, descriptions as subtitles, and many other title elements have specific policies here.
