Any idea if this should be split into three authors? There are >300 books/plans with this author.

Help.

Scott | 21475 comments Yikes. They should definitely be split up, but then the second and third authors are going to have to be added back to all of those books.

lethe | 13747 comments So even maps belong on GR?

The first one is the publisher, I don't think they need author credits.

lethe | 13747 comments According to the manual, unbound maps are not books.

So I think the "author" can be transferred as is to NOT A BOOK.

Scott | 21475 comments Oh ok, I wasn't sure, thought they might be guidebooks.


message 6: by lethe (new)

lethe | 13747 comments No, just 1-page city plans.

Yep.

lethe | 13747 comments My 'request to merge' timed out, but the merge seems to have gone through anyway.


message 9: by lethe (new)

lethe | 13747 comments Did I break the internet? Or at least GR? I tried to find one of the titles to see what it looks like now, and I can't find it with title words, ISBN or 'not a book': http://www.amazon.com/Stadtplan-Leime...

Is this a caching issue, or could it have to do with my merge request timing out?

Items with the author NOT A BOOK are deliberately excluded from the search index.


message 11: by lethe (new)

lethe | 13747 comments Ah! That makes perfect sense, now I think about it.

But here's that item: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...

Looks like the merge went through just fine.
