Brandy | 29 comments Is there a way to split up titles that have been combined into one record? In particular I'm looking at the Best American Non-Required Reading, which has the 2002-2007 volumes all listed as different editions of the 2006. Which means I can't have read 2006 and plan to read 2007, because they come up the same. Help!

Done. While the titles do make it appear that these are multiple editions of the same book, clearly each year's is a completely new volume.

Robbie Bashore There is a similar situation with "The Simpsons: A Complete Guide to our Favorite Family." This has been merged with "The Simpsons Forever! A Complete Guide to our Favorite Family...Continued," and "One Step Beyond Forever: A Complete Guide to our Favorite Family...Continued Yet Again."

Rob McMonigal | 12 comments It looks like someone cleaned that up for you. I also cleaned up a bit in the Matt Groening section, but there's still more to do if anyone's up for it after the Golden Books thing. I can't do the translations. :(

Thomas | 6 comments King Arthur by Rosalind Kerven
has been combined with Aladdin improperly. Can someone fix this? I'd fix it, but I don't know how.

Done.



JG (Introverted Reader) | 471 comments Just so you know, you can fix it by going to the combine page. You can either:

Click "separate" after each edition you want to separate

OR

Click on the "separate tool" at the end of the list of the combined editions. That will take you to a screen where you can choose which editions to separate and recombine.

That was probably as clear as mud, wasn't it? :-)
