Are you still looking into the Facebook-function bug? Haven't gotten any response from you from my last two emails.
Thanks. I forwarded your reply to my daughter. I think the problem is that she graduated from Rutgers U. in May 2010. I think you can not keep that email for say longer than 6 months after graduating.
Dear Dan: Help!!! Actually i am writing for my daughter who is shown on my LibrayThing page as a friend under the name Shoney. She has tried to log onto her LibraryThing page from multiple computers using her password and it will not let her on. Can you investigate this for us?????

Thanks. Sarah s MOM
Okay - ignore that, operator error! (It's been a long day...)


This was my first time and I have not linked to facebook before this. The screen for liking came up al right but after that I got the error screen
Thank you :) I will check it out :)
Thanks! I'd have missed the chat with Ann B otherwise.
Thank you!
Dan, my name is Allan Stratton -- user name AllanStratton

I returned from vacation to see someone tried to reset my password. I was given a tempory password and told to reset. It didn't work.

Am I a member of Liberary Thing? What is a clue about my old password? I entered all the ones I used, none worked.

Is someone op-ening, trying to change, an account using my name?
thanks i did!
Thanks for the notification. I have posted the link on our Library wiki. Ann Brashares and the Traveling Pants series was very popular at this school.
Thanks for telling me about the chat!
Thanks for the info, loved the book!
Adding my thanks for the Brashares chat notification! :)
Thanks for letting me know! :)
Awesome, thanks so much.
Thank you for letting me know. I appreciate that very much. Have a great day!!

Thanks for letting me know about the Ann Brasheres chat! I'll keep an eye on it :-)

Dear LibThingDan,

In months past when I have reviewed a book for the early reviewers it was posted that I had reviewed it almost immediately.. this last one, The Ranger, not so. I reviewed it on the 16th and it's still listed as unreviewed. Is there a step that has changed that I'm unaware of or have I fallen into a dead spot?

Thank you for your time,

Thank you! The new clue cat wasn't just my stupidity...the new one works, the old pen was broken. Only tried it at home but looking forward to scanning and adding lots more at the library.

Thanks again! Just @ jolietjewishcong
Is there any way to externally import titles that I cannot find within the site?
Thank you!
Thanks, Dan.

It's already gone! Thanks!

Hi Dan,

thanks or the info!

Best regards,

Hi Dan,

I am sorry to say that the link/touchstone for Death-in-a-Box is still not fixed. It still takes me to the wrong book.

Hi Dan,

I saw that I have a problem other authors have, ie. the touchstone you posted in my author chat links to someone else's book. Could you please fix it? The [my] book is Death-in-a-Box by Alta Ifland (and your link takes it to a book by Edgar Box).

Thank you,

Hi Dan, The touchstone you posted in my author chat links to someone else's book. Could you maybe fix it to redirect to Ghost of a Chance by me, not Kate Marsh?

Many thanks if you can do this!

sorry, i just sent an email to you that should have probably gone to jeremy.
Hi Again,
Oddly enough it was in my mailbox when I got home from work today. I just plugged it in and am now going to experiment with it. Thanks for your quick response and the comment about my dog. Her name is Peach and she is a feisty 3 year old Boxer girl. As I am far from tech savvy I imagine I may be in touch with you again should the Cue Cat prove too much for me. Thanks Again!
Best Wishes,
Hi there,
I recently upgraded my account and purchased a CueCat and did not get an email response or a receipt. Can you tell me the status of my order? The amount has already been paid from my PayPal account. Also, is it possible to get a tracking notice on the CueCat or something of that sort?
Thanks in advance!
Best Wishes,
Thanks for the quick response !!

I would like to know how many books I may have listed before the membership is no longer free. Will my books be deleted at some point without warning ?'

Hey Dan - not sure whom to foward this to but there are some titles on the Doris Buchanan Smith page that don't belong there; the two J.B. Rabbit novels were not written by my mother. Not sure who the author is.


Howard Randall Smith
I was full of hope when I plugged my Cue Cat scanner into the USB port & it lit up red: all went as specified in the leaflet = gibberish showed in the 1st Search box, but no ISBN materialised nor any title except a message saying something like "failure to recognise". Have I missed some stage? or is there another explanation?

Recently, my cataloging entries changed without any move by me from Author A-Z to Title A-Z, & also told me that "author less" entries like the 29 vols of the Ency. Brit. were not entered : is there any reason you can suggest for the spontaneous shift to Title A-Z? I have now restored the Author A-Z sequence, but I confess I initially panicked.
Thank you!!
I've had a problem with my account saying "Pending," when I've already paid for my membership. Are you the right one to take care of this? Thanks!
I'm not sure if you're the right person to ask, but my Santa Thing books still haven't arrived. Is there a way to track the package? I've noticed that others seem to be having the same trouble. Can you shed any light on the situation?

Hi Dan,
I have paid for a lifetime membership, but my account shows paid/pending. Will this be changed and if so can you tell me when, so I can upload all my books. Thanks
Hi Dan,

I upgraded to a paid account mid-December, and I noticed that my status is still pending. I just wanted to check on that.

Just out of curiosity when do you plan to start the Author chat Thread for Kaelin?
I can't even upload a second image on my profile page.
Missed your message last July about David Williams but there may be a mixup as he died many years ago!
I was wondering why my account still says "pending." I purchased the $25 lifelong membership. Thanks.
I have some duplicate books that I would like to trade someone for something I don't have. Is there any way to post these and work something out with another member?

Me email address is

Thanks for your support.
Hi Dan,
I just sent you an email with my PayPal information confirmation Details. If you have any more questions, please just let me know! Thanks for getting back to me so fast!! Hopefully next year I'll get to participate in SantaThing! :) I guess this year I just get a lump a coal for being notty.. :o/ I'll try and be better next year...


If you need anything else just email me back :)
The address I need to remove is the one on the Home page of mine under local events.

My login name was misspelled when I signed up, but there seems to be no way to change that. Can you help?
Thank you!!!
Thanks for the help.
How do I change the log-in name? Can't seem to find this anywhere.
I had no idea. This is great to know. Will keep your note for further reference. Thanks so much.
Thanks for getting back to me, Dan! I've submitted the name-change request.

For some reason, my most-frequented group, Folio Society Devotees, is currently shown as being ignored by me--but I never clicked on "Ignore this Group." What's worse, when I click on "Stop ignoring" it does nothing. It's no longer showing up in my list of groups. Is this the work of a hacker with a grudge against me, or is there some other reason?

Sincere thanks for your attention.

Where can I change my account password? I only found the form to change the login name, not the password...
Thanks for your help!
WHWRE IS ZEITGHIEST??? (sp) I have missed it on my LT for several days? Please do not tell me you are knocking it out. I love the feature.
Dan, I am attempting to upgrade/renew membership & cannot access how to do this? Please help.
thank you for letting me know about the talk
Thanks for letting me know about the LJ Sellars talk. I'm reading her first book at the moment, so will be interested to check in.
I looked and looked and couldn't find anyplace to report, since you're apparently the go-to guy for accounts (and who knows, it may just be an issue with my account) here's mine:

I have tried at least half a dozen times today to post a review. I closed and re-opened LT, then I signed out completely and signed back in...still no joy.

Help! (Or point me to the proper place to report this issue).

Thanks so much.

Thank you. I will check that out.
Dear Dan: Tried to enter books, and it said recent added, and above Dues not paid. I made a payment less than 4 months ago, or there abouts? my name is camelotstud; had hoped to work on stuff tonight, if you need to contact phone is 603-817-1851 or email is I think I used Pay Pal, not sure it was card. I re-newed regular membership for 1 year. It was working about 1 or 2 months ago? Not sure what "recent" means. Can you help asap? Bob DuBois
plz remove my account

I'm desperate to leave behind Grup Pro and Con, to eliminate it from my screen. Would you please tell me how to stop selected Groups from showing up on my Home screen?

Thanks very much,
Ken Stewart
I can't read any of the books I put in my library what is the problem? (I don't mean that I can't read either!!!lol)
I do not like having my address on the local events on my page, how do I remove it?
Hi Dan. the edit profile does not seem to be working for me.
Can you change the name on my account to ELMski? Thanks
Dear Dan

Thanks for the email. Unfortunately, the request form does not allow me to submit a request for a user name change. Besides, to free up the username I want I need to delete the account 'anatwork' and change the username on 'anshulajohri' to 'anatwork'.

Thank you for your help.

Please delete my account. Thanks
Pls help. I just started using library thing. I accidentaly imported my collection twice. How do I delete? I have tried FAQs, I have looked on line to no avail. If it can be done it is not intuitive.

I really do not want to click on 1000 records to delete each of them.

Thank you. I'll check it out.
Hey, I'd like to get a read only version of our online catalog. Is there anyway to do this other than the exported excel spreadsheet?

Hi, I'd like to change my username to 'anatwork'. How do I do that? Thanks!
Hi, I'd like to delete my account. I'll come back soon. :)
I'm trying to change my user name--how do I go about that?
I am trying to change my user name. However, the only option I am offered is to change my password. What do I need to do? Thank you.

I emailed you yesterday about the search function for finding members. Just wanted to let you know everything is working great this morning, and I'm looking forward to participating in this site. Thank you.

Thanks, Dan!
Thank you very much for the quick note.
thanks for letting me know! :-)
I would like to have my account deleted.
I would like to delete my account because I do not use it.
Hey, I would like to change my user name but when I follow the link to change name or password, the only field available is to change my password.
Hi, When I try to edit my entries I only get partial letters. Is LibraryThing having a problem or do I need to do something to fix it? My computer is new and this does not happen on other sites. Thanks, Eurekas
why have i been removed as a listing for library thing? my password works, etc., but when i try to edit info or add photo, i get message that this user has been removed. help! best, rae
Hey, it says to close an account come here.... how do i do this please?
Somewhat belatedly, I should point out that my David Williams is not the same David Williams. As Nevertype says - it's a fairly common name (and a typically Welsh one). This is a glitch in the LibraryThing Author idea, since there is no such thing as a unique author record.
Thanks for your message. I think "my" David Williams is dead though - it's a common name!
thanks, didn't catch it I was on vacation.
please delete my account.

thank you.
Which David Williams and which book? Thanks! --VS.
hello: i would like to change my member name? is there a way to do that? also are there any librarything tutorials? THANK YOU!
Hi Daniel--after reading through the litany of requests on yer page here, I feel bad for adding to the pile, but I understand you're the relevant person to contact if we'd like our user names changed? Let me know if I'm at the right place--thanks:)
why are all the books up for review not available in the usa?
Library thing is not what I expected. How can I unsubscribe? Thanks.
Hi Dan,

I need to update / change my membername. Please help me out.

Hi Dan,
My username is 'rosemigicovsky' but I need it to be changed to 'crakereadingroom', and I think messaging you can solve this?? Can this be done please?!
Hi Dan I am hoping you can tell me where I can find instructions on how to change my password for Library thing

Cheers John

I would like to delete my account.


Dan, I found your name on the list of employees (in Operations, LibraryThing), and I am not sure if this is your area, but my problem is that on my homepage it consistently says "TagWatch will return momentarily.Work in progress". It has been like that for quite a while now. Is something wrong? I would appreciate your input - or if you can direct me to the person in charge of TagWatch.


Thanks for the note about author David Williams. But, there are apparently 41 different authors with the name David Williams in LibraryThing (LT). Mine is David Williams (18), author of the two Nachtjager (night fighter) volumes in the Luftwaffe Colour series.

But, thanks for the thought.

Thanks for your help in deleting the picture.
Ah, but which David Williams... there's the question.
I have the same problem (and the same book) as tikitu, and support his suggestion about filtering.
Thanks for the info, Dan. Very nice of you to notice. steve brown
Hi Dan, bug report / feature request for you.

I just got from you a (presumably automated) announcement of an author chat by someone who shares a name (but very likely not a librarything account, oops) with an author in my library. Perhaps the announcement feature needs a bit more filtering for such cases? (Do LT authors list their own books somewhere? Might be more reliable than going by name -- and something to encourage anyway, I would have thought!)

Data: I have "Probability with Martingales" by David Williams (#7 on the author page); since this is a textbook on probability theory I'm guessing it's not the same guy you've invited for a chat.
Hi Dan - I'm hoping you're the right person to ask: I have a picture (blank) listed as one of my LT profile pictures and I can't figure out how to delete it, so I'm hoping you can help me.
Thanks for the user name change. Saves me a lot of potential problems.

Per I am leaving this note with respect to ... It looks like the links with respect to zebra aren't going to what you might expect. Perhaps zebra is no longer on sourceforge. Perhaps someone could update that page with appropriate information at some point. Not being familiar with this 'barcode' 'technology', I myself have no idea where the links should go. FYI.
Hi Dan,

All of the books that are available to request are "closed to request". Perhaps "Canada" could be removed from the list.thom
How can I make my list public so my colleagues at other universities can see my collection?
Thank you-
hi dan,
just bought a lifetime membership to my son.
Used PayPal as instructed, got the receipt of the payment from them
as well as tks from LT, but the emails i have not (nor my son) received.
obviously, membership is not visible.
my question: how long does it take from the payment that the membership
is validated ??
receiver is already a free member.
tks for a speedy response.
I have been unable to Add Books for 2 days. Is there a systems problem? Thanks.


I just signed on to this site. I'm trying to figure out how to download or at least access a book listed here:

From The Pits Of Ancient Holocaust: The Greater Oracle Of… by Gabriel Magnuson

How can I find this to access it please? I'm very unskilled with the Internet.

A. Alhazred
I want to upgrade to a paid account for life - GREAT PROGRAM!!! - but the upgrade link doesn't open. Thanks!
Can I actually read books through this website? If so I can't get it to downoad. Can you help me? My number 801-756-0075
Dan, Thank you for your response. Before I could send the suggested email, I received my order in the mail. I guess all I had to do was ask : )

Hi, Dan. I have 2 questions... Y isn't kindle on the Ebook connection list? Also, why is it that when I put in the kindle ISBN it doesn't go through? With LT connected to Amazon and kindle being from Amazon, I would think there would be a connection between LT and kindle.

Hi. Just joined and sent a profound and thoughtful post to the Ancient Greece group. Where is it? I spent 1/2 an hour on it. 12/14 8:52 PST
HI - I can't seem to get the currently reading slot. How do I do this. Looked on helpthing but still couldn't work it out!
Thanx. I'd also like to know how I can recommend more than one title for a particular book.
Hi Daniel
As I don't use LibraryThing very often, I'd like to terminate my membership and delete my account. How can I do that?
Regards, Ursula
'twas my pleasure!
I have two questions. Hope you can help me!

1) Lots of people want to be my friend, and I always accept. What, if anything, can I do with my friends? For example, is there an easy way to know what they are adding to their libraries or reviewing? Are our libraries linked in some way? Just curious.

2) How can I make more than one recommendation for a book? The rules say you can make up to three recommendations per book, but once I make one, the "add a recommendation" feature disappears from my screen.

I paid $10 by Money Bookers but my account didn't upgrade yet
where do we send our chuques for payment to life member????
How do I locate the free book covers?
sorry to bother you;

I'd be very interested in knowing how. Thanks, Shawn.
