As a teacher librarian, my summers are my time to do the things I don't have time for during the school year. I added photos to many (+20) of my books that had blank covers.

Nothing happened.

I re-sent the uploaded covers again; some of them indicated that they were being reviewed, and that I didn't need to re-submit them.

Nothing happened. And it is now November!

WHAT is going on? How long does it take to look at a submitted cover?

More importantly, what can I do to be part of the solution, instead of just the griper?  LOL

Blessings,

Liz F.

Did you use the edit book data option or the upload cover option? The edit option doesnt work and the pictures wont go through. You have to use the Upload Book Covers option.

A while back there was an issue and a bunch of images got lost so that could be the problem as well.

Sherry N said that it can take 2-5 or up to 10 days but that if you didnt recieve a pm about them after 10 days to try again.

Yes, go ahead and submit them again.  Some of my submissions go lost during the server overload during one of the the yahoo frenzies.  Now everything is caught up and some of the latest images I posted showed up in a few hours... way to go image people!

Chris, are you serious??  The Edit option doesn't work????    AARRRRRRGH!!!!!   Then I' ve wasted so much time over the last two weeks trying to update my shelf.  If it doesn't work, why the hell don't they take down the link?  What a pain.

No no no the edit info link does work for editing information but not for adding pictures.
