Librarians cannot combine one author account with a Goodreads author account.

Please contact Goodreads support to correct this for you:

lethe | 13747 comments I was looking at this earlier but was called away.

There is something weird going on. Both profiles have 1 space between the first and last names, and the unclaimed one gets the books added to Reinhold^Kanzler.

I cannot tell what is wrong with the claimed profile, there are no diacritics or accents that could cause this. Staff will have to look at that.

Something else I don't understand:

https://www.goodreads.com/work/editio...

Why did one edition of Plato's collected works have your name as primary author (I changed it back to Plato) and do the other two have Friedrich Nietzsche? Surely they should all have Plato as primary author, and yours as secondary (and also Platon)?

R. Kanzler (kanzler) | 7 comments I do not know why this is all happening, we just wanted to register on goodreads, please delete everything so it fits nicely again if you have the time.

I did not sleep this night and I have only two books, Platon and Nietzsche, I mixed them up.

Kind regards
RK

I sent them a amail and corrected the Nietzsche Platon mistake as good as possible

R. Kanzler (kanzler) | 7 comments thank you andrew, we were able to see you do it in real time! fastest reaction we have ever seen in terms of customer care


message 7: by lethe (new)

lethe | 13747 comments Made Plato once again the primary author on his collected works. In these cases, the editor is the secondary author.

Will you tell us your secret?

Same for Nietzsche's works. He is the primary author, the editor is a secondary author.

Is there a reason why you keep removing the ISBNs?

How incredibly odd. But it works, I tried adding a book and it also went to the claimed profile (deleted it straightaway). So thanks :)

I tried that and got no joy for about 20 minutes this morning. Very odd. I'm glad it worked at any rate.

R. Kanzler (kanzler) | 7 comments we cannot merge

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...

and

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...

we want the correctly published version, namely 9781716893544, 1716893542 to be with the other collections of Nietzsche.


message 13: by R. (new)

R. Kanzler (kanzler) | 7 comments we removed the old ISBN from stores so that
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...

is the exact same book under a different title but cannot be bought or rented anywhere

R. Kanzler (kanzler) | 7 comments as of now, the real "samtliche werke" is not grouped with the other "samtlichen werken"

There are books that have been out of print for over a hundred years on Goodreads. This site is for readers to catalog books they own, regardless of current in or out of print status.

Іван Синєпалов | 173 comments These are several pages for the same author:
İsmail Gaspıralı (correct spelling)
Ismail Gasprali (wrong spelling)
Гаспринский Исмаил (wrong spelling in Russian)
Исмаил Гаспринский (correct spelling in Russian)
Гаспринський І. (wrong spelling in Ukrainian, correct would be "Ісмаїл Гаспринський").

Unfortunately, that is how the name is spelled on this book cover, so it has to stay: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

I will look at these later, but in future it is better to start a new thread for a request like this, for example in the Language & Translation Issues folder.

ETA Gasprali seems to be not a typo, but a variant spelling: https://referenceworks.brillonline.co...

All done.

The most common English/international spelling of his name seems to be Ismail Gaspirali. I made that the primary name on his books: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...
