Author Name/E-Mail Conflicts Resolved
Posted by Nick on 6 November 1999, 17:45 GMT

Well, it's finally done. This morning, I fixed all (and I mean ALL) the conflicts in the author database. All authors in our archives now have only one author ID. For example, Bill Nagel had seven(!) different email addresses listed in our archives. Now, he has only one. If you are one of the authors whose name and/or email address was merged today, and you want either your name or email to be changed to something different, I implore you to please email me. Thanks!

Glad to see this was fixed. It was confusing to look through the author's information.

-Finally got the first comment!

Nick, how about configuring the database to either allow authors to edit their listed email (like accounts?) or to automatically set an author's email address to that of his (or her) last submission? I'd like to have mine set to scott@acz.org, which is too new for any of my prior submissions. . .

Well, I changed your email to scott@acz.org. The way we handle author info changes right now is by simply emailing one of us... or mentioning it on the comment board, like you just did :)
We'll look into possibly changing it in the future.

There still seems to be 2 different Bill Nagel's in the "Most downloaded authors of all time" section.

Is there any way to view, say, the top 15 busiest authors or authors with most downloads? I'd just like to see who's in the lead.
