Even though I have 141 buddies, I still have no percentage of the Similarity Index introduced in August.  I can't believe none of my buddies rated their books.  Am I the only one with this issue?  If not, why did they implement new changes (such as the Bookshelf Header) this month without resolving problems from last month?

I didn't even know they had done that.  I haven't looked at my buddy list in ages.  I'll have to check it out.

Hmm. I didn't notice anything different on my BL. Where is this index supposed to be?

Supposedly a percentage is labeled right next to their name on the buddy list.

It was part of the upgrade but quickly disappeared. No one has it anymore.

It's still in the What's New area at the top of the page though...

There were some issues with rating books, some of the ratings weren't taking, and people were also unable to add books to their BIR list.  So, the Similarity Index feature was pulled.  I believe they are going to reinstate it once the bugs are worked out.  (With this September update, the BIR problem seems resolved, so hopefully the Similarity Index will be back soon. I've been looking forward to it.)

Whew, I thought it was just me and maybe my buddies had a conspiracy going or something..lol  Good to know that it's still in the development stage.  I too am looking forward to it.
