Alex | 2739 comments Hello Kathryn, the other edition of Adding Lib was under a different author name. Is your surname spelled Elliott, like on the book covers, or Elliot, as in your profile?

Kathryn Elliott | 5 comments *face palm* - How the hell did that happen??? Thx for the catch!


message 4: by Alex (new)

Alex | 2739 comments If your profile name is spelled incorrectly, I can put in a request to have it fixed, if you'd like.

Kathryn Elliott | 5 comments I made the change - thanks!

Kathryn Elliott | 5 comments I spoke too soon. If you could make the change, that would be great. Didn't realize it had to be adjusted by a librarian. Elliott - two ts. Thanks.

Alex | 2739 comments Only GR staff, it seems, can change the names of claimed author profiles. I've made the request here:

It may or may not take a while to go through.

That is only true when the author is attempting to change to (and thus merge with) a name that already has an existing profile. If they are editing their profile to a name that does not yet exist in the database, they can do so without assistance.
