message 1: by Will (new)

Will Hinds (radiok) | 6 comments Hello fellow Librarians! Have you noticed bogus "questions" in the Reader Q&A section? Take for example, Patrick Rothfuss' forthcoming Doors of Stone, at least 7 of the 12 answered questions are absolute rubbish. Can we librarians delete questions somehow? Is that a forthcoming feature or maybe a Super Librarian only tool? I'm not trying to be overly restrictive, or obsessive compulsive, but this area is blatantly being misused on this book, and I can't even imagine how many others.

Banjomike | 5530 comments I expect that only staff can remove the Q&A gunk. And it would probably need to be guilty of sedition (rather than just be dross) before that would happen. If a question is a real problem then use the flag option and alert Support to it.

Andrea (andrea_b) | 561 comments In a thread over at the Feedback Group ( it was mentioned that even if flagged, GR staff weren't deleting questions that weren't really questions :/ ... I think the non-questions make the section look a lot less useful...

Will Hinds (radiok) | 6 comments Thanks Andrea, but overall, "ew". I hope Goodreads developers get a chance to work on this feature, it really needs some help. I guess it's safe to say that, in the meantime, "no" there's no way to delete questions. Boo!

Scott | 17184 comments I don't think it can be deleted but it can be changed to be anonymous if you no longer want to be associated with it.
