Tom | 12 comments Should there be an Author Issues folder?
I have noticed that Author request/issues tend to end up in either General or Book Issues folders.

Most author issues are really book issues.

Shireen (shireenj) | 10 comments I have an author issue and don't know where to put it. Maybe under general will work.

Eric, many authors add these in either the writing section or via their blog.

True. But when you have a whole bunch of 'book issues', all for one author, and to fix it requires author disambiguation, it's easier to approach the project as an 'author' project than a bunch of individual 'book issues'. Like we were doing recently with Adam Smith: http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/5...

I guess there used to be a big 'author disambiguation' thread. That is kind of the same thing as a "author issues" section, but just not as formal, or easy to manage. With a separate 'author issues' section, we could create a working thread for each disambiguation project.
