I tried today to use the feature in the Personal Profile account for favorite book quotes. I entered the quotes and the exact book title that they originated from but when I hit save and look at the updates profile page the quotes are not correctly matched with their respective books. I do not know if this is a current bug and was unsure who to conact to see if anyone else is having the same issue.

Rachael, looking at your profile now it appears the citations at the end of the quotes match the books to their left. Do you mean that the quotes don't match the citations that follow them?

Well that is weird that you should see anything at all cause I deleted the quotes and hit save since they werent working right. An example. I had the quote "People are stupid" -Zedd (without quotes casue it says dont put them), then following the quote in the next box I put in Wizards First Rule for the book the quote came from. And when I went to my profile page to see what it looked like, it kept telling me the quote was from the book By The Sword which was another book and quote combo I entered as above with Wizards first rule quote. Does this make sense?

You're saying "People are stupid" comes from Wizard's First Rule, and NOT By the Sword? Hmm...

edited to add: Try deleting them and starting over, this time saving once after each quote you enter, rather than entering all the quotes and then saving at the end.

Ok. The one that is "Neal what possessed u.....DOES NOT come from the book wizards first rule. So it IS miss matching books with quotes.

It did it to all 5 quotes I had entered. And also tried to get rid of but apparently it did not remove them from my profile when I told it to.....
