Evan | 9 comments This is feedback, so perhaps it should be in the discussion, but I think it just pertains to us. I was looking to enter some author biographical information, but when it came to picking a country of origin I was stumped. The choices only list current countries, and some authors were born in countries that don't exist any more.

I understand this would be a great undertaking to fix, but perhaps that field could be treated like shelves and have us be able to enter new ones if the right one isn't there?

Good point! We'll queue that one up...

We added a new field to the author profile "city of origin", which can be used in conjunction or in place of country of origin. This should solve the problem - enjoy!
