A lot of BookLikes members have been asking us about the ability to edit/add/improve book information on BookLikes' book pages. Guess what -- its here!
All BookLikes members can help us improve the book and author information. The book pages and author pages has just received a new edit option -- available for all book lovers.
To edit the book and author information, go to a book page or an author page and click edit.
The edit view is the same as the one in add a new book form and includes the same fields to fill up.
Please make sure to add the correct data that refers to a given book edition.
Remember that the book and author information should be objective, and should not include a review or personal feelings (have a look at the edits guidelines). Let's make it professional.
With your help we wish to develop and maintain the biggest multilingual online book catalog, however, we need to make sure that all the edits are necessary and that the changes are well executed. Today we introduce two features: the ability to make edits on book/author pages and a new official status for BookLikes bloggers -- The Librarians.
The Librarians are BookLikes bloggers who have been invited by the BookLikes team to join this special project and to monitor all the edits made in the BookLikes' book catalog. You can recognize the Librarians by the special badge visible on their blogs and by their avatars'.
The Librarians will have the overview of all the edits done by the BookLikes members. Once the edits get accepted, they will be made public and visible on the book page and author page. The process of verification will allow us to counteract the unfair behavior and listing the incorrect data. The Librarians have also an ability to look through the new book entries added to BookLikes' catalog and reports. No book entries will be deleted, the information will be reviewed and improved.
The BookLikes' team wish to thank all Librarians and BookLikes' members who support us and help in making BookLikes better and better.
