(What I'd really like to know, however, is why three people seem to think that frog photos are appropriate author images.)
Generic blank book covers can be fairly boring, and you can only define one IIRC, so no skin off my nose if someone wants a cat there instead though I hope in time such pictures can be set aside as probably not particularly useful to other users.
But can't they use it as their default cover without having it appear as a cover choice for the work?
Because, as was said above, they want to use the cat image on their own books, but are polite enough to want to minimize the damage by not having it show up as a suggestion for others, which the not-a-cover flag should ideally do.
I thought what I was doing was reasonable (because as lorax says, I don't want it showing up as a suggestion for someone else), but hey, if you want me to just remove it, I can do that.
I will simply remove the image in the future.
Another thing that has come to mind while looking at all of this is that although we flaggers have the problem that if an image is flagged because it is on the wrong book, it ends up showing as flagged on the right book.
I thought that had been fixed.
I think that's why I started flagging them in the first place. It seemed that even after 48 hours, I would still see some of the Tama covers even after I removed it. It was a long time ago, though, and I think I just fell into the habit of flagging them even after removing them, without realising that flagging didn't actually DO anything.
So, sorry if I've caused any trouble. If I'd known that flagging covers in the future wouldn't remove them I would never have loaded them!
A lot of covers I've loaded are for editions which apparently no one else has. I have just looked at my http://www.librarything.com/allyourcovers.php?sort=da and am amazed at how many books I have for which no one had the same edition. Most of my books on birds/birding, gardening, orchids, etc., have only a current edition cover showing. That's not MY book. I want the cover for MY book.
I did eventually wind up going to a default cover, which is why ALL of the Tama covers are from a long, long time ago. Tama is from 2008 and beginning of 2009. I think that's when I discovered that if I used the default cover, and go to 'your books' and list covers, I can find the ones which need to be replaced with the correct cover.
You'll all be glad to know that I have only 1292 covers to replace with the correct cover :) .
