Why is the first edition by a Goodreads author member and the other 3 editions not showing as by that author. I can't see any difference in the way the author name shows. With one I even copied and pasted from the first, just to make sure.

Thanks.

ETA: Just combined the 3 editions that could be combined.

The GR author has two spaces after his initial. Remember, that only shows up on book edit and author edit pages.

Lisa Vegan (lisavegan) | 2409 comments Thanks. Missed it. Even though copied and pasted from the author's, it didn't seem to work.

You can't access the GR author's edit page. So I'm not sure how copy-paste would work.

Lisa Vegan (lisavegan) | 2409 comments I got the name changed on the other 3 editions but combine is no longer working for me. If somebody can do the combine, great; otherwise I'll try again later. Thanks.

I'm getting combine errors too.

Edit: working for me now.

Apparently the combined irritation from the three of us was enough to do it. ;)

Lisa Vegan (lisavegan) | 2409 comments Yes, I noticed they're now combined. ;-) Thanks.
