Introducing the Helpers log

Update: Author links added. See below.

I’ve added a new page, the Helpers log, that tracks the various ways users help LibraryThing and each other—work, author and tag combinations, author picture and “author nevers.” (John will add author links tomorrow.) The new page will make it easier for eagle-eyed Thingamabrarians to watch over what’s going on with these critical activities, and smite miscreants.

By the way, did you know we are averaging 2,000 work-combination actions per day? Per day, folks! That’s not even works combined, which is higher since a combination will have at least two and and high as twenty. It boggles the mind.

This isn’t a small thing. You guys have up-ended the world of book data. And we’ve only just begun.

Update: Author links added. Unfortunately, we weren’t storing the right data for author links. So it’s only showing ones added since we fixed the system. It also means we don’t know who added links before, not exactly anyhow. Again, apologies.
