Oops! Maybe I ought to fix that....  

So you went through and marked books that didn't have a picture. Well, now it has a picture but it also still has the "Needs an image" tag. When adding these tags for the editing/image group, please go back and check to see whether the image has been added! The editing/image groups CANNOT REMOVE YOUR TAGS! So be sure to return and remove those bad ones.

Another correction, I had a gaffe when I posted the Newbery awards with the incorrect spelling. D'OH! If you spelled it "NEWBERRY" when you tagged the books, please go back and change to "NEWBERY Medal Winner", the correct spelling. At the very least, add NEWBERY Medal Winner to the ones that are mistagged.

And if you later discovered that you goofed on the location, character, whatever, please go back and remove those tags. Also be sure to remove those personal tags that no longer apply for you.

Let's clean up those tags! :)

Edited because I STILL can't spell or type Newbery...

And adding: Be sure to REMOVE the misspelled tag if you used it! :)

Jane, Did you mean to say, "At the very least, add NEWBERRY Medal Winner to the ones that are mistagged"? I'm confused... :-)

Says the dunderhead:

Okay, I have a confession to make.  I was the loser who tagged all those books with Newberry Medal Winner.  I like to think of myself as well-read, and I am a big fan of the Newbery Medal winning books.  I have even begun a quest to read them all before I die. 

But gosh darn me, I never knew it was NEWBERY not NEWBERRY!  So I'm the culprit.  And I have gone back and fixed the ones I was responsible for. 

And it's even worse because we had this forum conversation months ago and I STILL never caught on.  Apparently, I'm thick.  So, so sorry.  :-)

Speaking of deleting tags, is there a way for us to search for all the tags we've used? 

Most of my tags are useful ones, but I do sometimes use them for personal tracking.  I'm always afraid I'll forget to delete them afterwards, but how would I know??

Unfortunately, there isn't a search function for the tags as of yet. I hope they'll add one soon. Then we can all hunt for a particular tag. But for now, we just have to remember.
