It makes no sense because of
a) search « Halldor » search_author.php?q=Halldor http://www.librarything.com/search_author.php?q=Halldor and
b) search « Halldór » search_author.php?q=Halld%C3%B3r http://www.librarything.com/search_author.php?q=Halld%C3%B3r
Thanks in advance!
Tim has asked that we not contact people who choose to enter incomplete or incorrect author names, and of course there's no way for anyone else to edit the record. The most you can do is edit the data on your own copy of that book to include the author's full name.
d) I would be happy to learn how to place some disambiguation notes at the top because some other strange author urls are in the system:
work/6061995/details/55511122 http://www.librarything.com/work/6061995/details/55511122 was imported from Data source Südwestdeutscher Bibliotheksverbund SWB and has generated the strange by « Halldór Guºmundsson »
Yesterday at some poin in time after the first import author/halldrgumundsson&norefer=2 http://www.librarything.com/author/halldrgumundsson&norefer=2 was displaying « Halldór Guºmundsson » . I would have liked to place a note about this strange author name but didi not know how.
Today the same url author/halldrgumundsson&norefer=2 http://www.librarything.com/author/halldrgumundsson&norefer=2 shows the proper « Halldór Guðmundsson » .
3d. The point of disambiguation notices isn't to complain about LT's poor handling of non-ASCII characters (that's what Talk is for ;) ), it's to clarify otherwise potentially confusing issues around combination or separation of authors and works. (For instance, you could put the standard single-name boilerplate along the lines of "Do not combine this author name with any others. If your books appears on this page, please re-enter the full name in the author box instead of the surname only. Then your book will show up on the correct author page. Thank you for your help." (Obviously, you'd need to change "surname" to something more appropriate in this case.)
