Eva Marie (evamarie3578) | 755 comments Is there any way to "fix" this author name to have it like all the others in the system?

Just a small thing, kind of irking me.. :)

Beth (bethjustbeth) | 1586 comments Fixed, like in captitalization? I wonder if all the books would follow, or if they'd need to be fixed individually?

I can see how it bugs.

We can't fix it, only the author can because he's a Goodreads Author. You can send him a message and ask him to fix it.

Changing an author name (use the edit data link in the author profile box) changes all the books with that name. Unless the author is a Goodreads Author, any librarian can change an author's name.

Carolyn (seeford) | 579 comments He is a GR Author, but messaging him might or might not be received well by the author.

I would bounce a message to Patrick, who is handling the GR Author program, I believe, and ask him to handle it. TPTB can make the change if the author doesn't respond to Patrick, if they so decide.

I've contacted Patrick about this.

Eva Marie (evamarie3578) | 755 comments Thanks everyone, Deborah yes, I was asking because he's a GR author and obviously we can't alter their info.
I was more or less trying to see if a super could do it.
Thanks rivka, things that aren't uniform jump right out at me!
