Tuesday Thinger: What Do You Find Confusing?

Welcome to another week of Tuesday Thingers! We always love to hear from regular participants as well as new people.

Yesterday, we had a small blogger/author/publicist get-together here in the Seattle area, and it was lots of fun! We talked about our blogs and a few of the sites we frequently use, Library Thing was there too!

One thing that came up was how confusing Library Thing can be. I was actually surprised to hear that, as it is the first book/review site I go to when I update my reviews.

Questions: What areas of Library Thing do you find confusing or frustrating? The team at LT seem to be continually updating things at the site. Is there anything in particular that you would like to see updated or changed?

My Answer: First of all, I'd like to apologize - Tuesday Thinger is being posted late this week. We are still on vacation, and I lost track of time. . . plus, I've got a few other things that have temporarily pulled my attention in another direction, so I woke up with a start this morning, realizing that I had forgotten to write and post the Thinger for this week! I'll try to get next week's ready early so we don't have a repeat. :)

My biggest frustration with LT right now is finding friends! I have tried multiple times to search for friends using the email tool, but for some reason, it won't work for me. So. . . I simply try to find user names that seem familiar and then send a friend request.

I would love to see a search added for member names, both real names and screen names. I don't believe it exists yet, but think that would be a huge help to those of us trying to find our bloggy/booky friends.

Looking forward to reading everyone's answers!!

I was hoping to see pictures from the get-together! For me, adding friends is the most confusing part of Library Thing.

Well, looks like I'm late, too! I found LT a bit confusing at first, but I guess I've gotten used to it.
Here's the rest of my answer.

And thanks, Wendi, for taking time from your vacation to do the Thingers bit!

I agree with you on the finding friends thing. GoodReads has it right on that score. But I like Library Thing for many reasons. They just need to fix the friend thing.

Hope your vacation is relaxing.
