Reviewing Book Sets Cover To Default

This is not the first time this has happened: I added reviews to books and when I later came back to LT, the reviewed books' covers had reverted to the default/blank cover.
I couldn't get it to happen with one of my books. So, a few questions:
* Are you adding the review from the Edit book screen, or are you doing it from the catalog view?
* Does it happen to every book every time you add a review?
* Does it happen when you don't change the review, but change something else in the edit screen, like the publication info?
* What browser and what operating system are you using?
There is currently a problem with covers - the server that feeds out the display covers is full, and there's a program trying to clear them out but it's currently running neck and neck with the covers being added. So a lot of covers are displaying blank. There's no actual problem - the covers are safely on LT - but it's not showing at the moment.
I don't know what happened before - but it may or may not be related.
Oh. I misread your bug - this one makes blank white covers, not defaults. Though it still might be related.
I've had cover issues before, but this one was new to me. Thanks for looking into it. :)
It did it again!
Yesterday I changed the status of Blitz, which I had on my wishlist. I changed it to my library. Now today in the 'home' tab it has a default cover, not the cover I chose back a couple of weeks ago.
Ah - is the default always just on the home page? There is a bug that if setting the cover isn't the last thing you do, sometimes it reverts to default in the Recently Added thumbnails. But the cover (normally) stays on the book, if you go to look at it.
I just tried it and it didn't change the cover - but I'd entered the book a while ago, and applied a Member-Uploaded cover at the time. I don't know - there are too many possible variants. But there is the known bug about default covers in Recently Added. Does the cover disappear everywhere or just on the Home page for you, fuzzi?
It is still doing it on my Ipad. When I go to my Home tab/page, the books I added yesterday aren't showing, but they are showing on the 'Add Books' tab. Refreshing the Home page doesn't change it...:sigh:.
I believe that at least some of the issues I have been experiencing are due to the recent upgrade on my Ipad. Grrr...
