Lisa, go into your reminder list by clicking on My Account- then My Lists, then- Reminder List ...    to the left of your book is a blank box, click on it, then at the very top right-then click on delete... should work!

You don't want to remove it from your Reminder List, you want to remove it from your Tag list. Go to My Lists -> My Tags, click on that Tag and see if it shows up in the list with the red x on it.

You need to go on your My Account pull down menu to your My Lists, then My Tags. Go to your reminder list tag, LisaRL? Click on that tag. That will bring up a list of books you have tagged. Remove the tag there, not on your RL.

You can also remove it on the book detail page, down in the Tag section.

There is not a tag on it , thats why I'm having so much trouble. 

If you look at my link , you'll see there is NO TAG  on it at all for me to delete. Its not even showing up on my reminder list through my account. Thats why I'm so frustrated...

Thank you though.  Maybe its a fluke..?

Try this:  My Account=>Settings=>Tags=>Select:  On, then apply.  Does that make the tag show up?

Thanks Whitney ! I'll try that now and let you know. I was afraid people were not understanding how I was explaining it. because I'v never heard of this problem before.

 

It didnt work , I remember when I first made my list for my tags I pressed save. is there a way to un-save something?

Thanks for all your help everyone. I think it may be a fluke or something. I'v contacted PBS people.

Lisa, it sounds to me like someone else is using the same tag.   If you go to your Lists and find that tag, it will show how many members are using it.  If it shows more than 1, then click on it and it will give you the nicknames of the other member(s).

That would be my guess too - Someone else is using the Tag on that book. I see 2 people are using the Tag. If someone asks about the book you will just have to explain it to them, or transfer your list to a new, more unique Tag.

Did you actually click on the book itself and try to remove the tag there?

Yep . There is not a tag on it.If you look at my link ,go to the book ' Beloved Betrayal" there is no tag that I can see.  Are you seeing one?

Yes, I see several tags on it when I click on the book itself:

If you tried to get rid of the Lisa'sRL tag on that book by clicking on the red R, you've marked the tag as "inappropriate."  (Oops.)  Other people will still see it, and it will still effect your linked list, but you won't see that tag any more.  (We can only actually remove tags that we've added ourselves.  They have a red X instead of a red R.)

Here's my suggestion --  click on one of the tags to get the list of all your tagged books, and add a different (unique) tag to each of the books you want on the list.  Then remove all your Lisa'sRL tag, since that's no longer unique.  Set up a new link using the new tagged list.

And of course, for me it would have an R.  Lisa, if you see a little X instead of the R, you should be able to remove it.

JIC, this list was almost at the very bottom of the page.

Thanks so much Patty & Whitney !  I removed the tag , is that why I cant see it and you can?

I guess , I'll start all over again and delete my link and think of another name for my RL.

It never occured to me it was because someone else had the same tag as me.
