Caroline | 58 comments Okay, all of those should be fixed and happy now, Angel.

Sonky | 7 comments Has anyone inquired with Mohmmad Reza? Seems as if he may be planning to add Arabic editions of each of the books affected.

If you have interest in doing so, you are eligible to be a Goodreads librarian yourself. The only requirement is to have at least 50 books rated and to make a request to join the group. That way, you can make fixes when you see mistakes.

Just fyi.

Lisa

Caroline | 58 comments Well, it looks like Mohmmad Reza is long-since inactive, his last update being back on May 12th. I personally wouldn't see much a point in fussing at him for things done half a year ago, especially since it looks like he's stopped using the website.

And I second Lisa's recommendation to Angel. It's really great to be able to fix these mistakes as you see them, and the process of becoming a Librarian is very simple. Here's all the info on it if you're interested:

Angel (mnemosyne) | 48 comments I have...um, issues I guess and I'm too afraid to fix things myself. I'm afraid of screwing it up. I'd rather let someone who knows all the rules and protocols fix it the right way than for me to half-fix it and make more work for someone else.
