Brent (tbschaus) | 4 comments I've created a list based on Donald Barthelme's Reading List (http://essayist.tumblr.com/post/66187...).

Like many of the "Best of..." lists from journalistic sources, I'd like to make this a static list.

How do I do that?

Thanks!

Amara Tanith (aftanith) As far as I'm aware, it can't be done.

Paula (paulaan) | 7027 comments There is a tick box "Static List" on the set up of a list. I have edited and ticked the box.

This should only allow the creator and librarians to add books.

I would add a section to the list title / about section indicating that only books on Donald Barthelme's Reading List should be on this list. That way should a librarian add one (since we are not perfect) there is a justification for removal.

Really? I thought that was a staff-only feature.

Thanks, Paula, I appreciate your help :)

Pretty sure I didn't see the tick box you mentioned, though.

Will make the other changes soon.

Cheers!

I can't see it, either. Must be a Super thing.

I think it got extended to supers at some point. For cases like this. ;)

Lobstergirl But you can't actually vote on a static list. There are two voters on the Barthelme list, who both voted before it was made static. Now it's just a "challenge."

Brent (tbschaus) | 4 comments I'm confused, and I created the list lol
