Ruben (mcihhh) | 32 comments Hi there. I'm recently new here and i understood that only a 'Super Librarian' can merge editions that are duplicated, right?

If so, can someone merge this two editions:
Anjos e Demónios
Anjos e Demónios

The first one has been added by more people and have the more correct information, the second one is a duplicate of the exact same edition.
Also, one have the ISBN13 and the other the ISBN10. When merging the editions please update the field, or is this done automatic?

Ruben (mcihhh) | 32 comments Thanks rivka.

Can I post here some more editions I found out that are duplicated?

Please do.

Ruben (mcihhh) | 32 comments Ok. So here are some duplicated editions that needs to be merged:

Maddie - A Verdade da Mentira
Do Fundo do Coração
Do Fundo do Coração
Anna Karénina
Norwegian Wood
A Metamorfose
Os Meus Problemas
Os Meus Problemas

I don't know how merging works, so all the 1st links are the correct editions, the second links are duplications.

MissJessie | 874 comments Well, I'd love to fix them Ruben, but the combine for Dosty. refuses to load. Hangs up half way thru and just lays there.

Ruben (mcihhh) | 32 comments This two editions are duplicates:

The first one is the most complete.

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Got it, Ruben.

message 20: by Missy (new)

Missy Welsh (missywelsh) | 11 comments I discovered a book that was duplicated as well as one of the authors that was duplicated due to a space between initials:

Shifting Sands - bad version and bad author

Shifting Sands - correct version and correct author

Thanks for the assistance!

Could these two be merged, since they are the same title in different languages:

The original title is the Spanish one.

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Mara, I've combined them (meaning I marked them as different editions of the same book -- "merging" means to delete duplicate records for the same edition).

Do you by any chance know which other editions by this author are translations of the same book? It looks like many of them are currently uncombined.

Bridges - A tale of Niagara Bridges: A Tale of Niagara by DK LeVick.

When I posted a review, it showed up on one and not the other. I believe he needs all his reviews on one. Please help. Thanks

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Sonia, that needs to go over to the Goodreads Authors Merge thread, since the problem is that there are two versions of the author's name being used there. I put in a request here so rivka or another GR employee will fix this.
