OCLC – “More than 10,000 personalized lists have been created within WorldCat.org since the social networking feature was introduced in June.”
August 28, 2007
It would be “more than 10,001” if I could get the feature to work. I haven’t been able to add any items to either the default lists or to a new one I set up in my profile. Every time I try to “save” something, I get bounced back to the login screen (although the page still says I’m signed in). I wondered if it’s a Mac OS thing; I just sent them a feedback email to find out. Very frustrating, because it’s an excellent concept, and I’d love to use it.
Just got a reply back from OCLC — it’s a bug related to user names with the @ symbol (and so affecting everyone who used their email address as their user name). They’re working on a fix.
