This has been changed again. I've moved the three separate volumes back into the series (whence they had been removed to a separate series of their own) but the other separate books/parts have gone. Perhaps the person who neatened up the series last time - and can remember how it should be - can look it over again and make appropriate alterations, if he/she has the time?

ETA: The user who made these changes has made alterations to other series that are in my catalogue (and possibly to others that aren't) has a private account and so can't be contacted.

It's not because s/he is private, but because s/he's got comments turned off.

I see this person has made edits to a lot of series. Very annoying. Again, people shouldn't be allowed to mess with site wide data and have their comments off.

It might be a good idea to drop Tim or Jeremy a line about this. In another case where one user was systematically messing up CK entries and wasn't responding to comments, Tim intervened.

By the way, while cleaning up other entries, I noticed your note on the Hercule Poirot series. That series has been entered in other languages, so it makes sense that it would say Hercule Poirot rather than Hercule Poirot Mysteries, and that it would be a duplicate. It's an alternate language version of the series (actually several alternate languages: French, Norwegian, maybe more).

I don't know anything about the LoR series, so someone else will have to look into that.

However, I did check through several of the person's other series edits, and reverted those back. Some were ok, because they didn't have previous data. The only questionable ones that I didn't finish are the Famous Five ones, because there are apparently several different series with that name (by different authors?), and I'm not sure how they relate. Perhaps someone with knowledge of those series can revert these.

It wasn't my comment on the Hercule Poirot series page, although I have made similar comments on other series that seemed to me to be duplicates. I usually only notice possible duplicate series if one of my books suddenly appears in more than one series but I will bear in mind the alternate language aspect in future.

ETA: I've emailed Jeremy about the situation.

Thanks. I've emailed the member. If needed, the edits are all listed here.

ETA - In my email I suggested they pop over here for guidance/suggestions/&c. so if that happens, play nice :-)

5 - Oh. I saw your name on the history for it, but this must be one of those cases where when you edit a series entry, it attributes the description to you too.
