Getting rid of my own review that is not a review?

kesäkuu 19, 2021, 8:32 pm

I have a flagged review that is a deserved flag- I accidentally managed to post a comment on a book intended for the comments section on the work to the review page. I've tried to delete it and can't. It's this review-
Can anyone help me delete it?

No. You have to do it yourself. Go to the edit page and remove it there.

You can replace it with an actual review and then have people counter flag the flag.
You can just replace it with a single space. Then have people counter flag.

Otherwise, you'd need to erase the book in its entirety and reload it into the system. Unfortunately.
(That might have changed so someone else might come along and tell me I'm wrong.)

>3 gilroy: Thanks- looks like that is what I'll have to do. I haven't read the book in years and don't even know where my copy is at the moment. Blah.

>1 leennnadine: Enough people have counter-flagged your review that it does not have a blue flag anymore

>5 norabelle414: Thanks. I'll still take care of it, because it isn't a review.

>6 leennnadine: All you need to do is edit the review and erase all of the text. That will return it to "not reviewed" status.

>7 norabelle414: That's exactly what I've done multiple times, but it still shows up.

>8 leennnadine: Very strange. I tested with my own book (wrote a review, saved it, deleted the review, saved it) and it worked fine. Where are you deleting your review from, the catalog page or the book page?
