Flagged covers showing as a default cover on voting page

apr 2, 6:21 pm

I'm not sure if this should go in bug collecting or here.

When voting on cover flags, quite a few default covers show. (Theyre always the same red one for me) Initially I assumed the image had already been removed or something. But I just noticed it with a cover I flagged, and the cover still appears on the work page. The flagged cover is one of those generic covers generated by the bookseller, if that makes a difference. It looks like another persons flags for generic covers on the work are also showing as the default cover.

The works in question are Three by Flannery O'Connor: Wise Blood, A Good Man Is Hard to Find, The Violent Bear It Away and Three by Flannery O'Connor: The Violent Bear It Away, Everything That Rises Must Converge, Wise Blood, but I'm guessing the same thing is happening to other books. (I'm using the Firefox mobile and desktop browsers)

I'm not seeing any blank default covers when I look at the works you've listed.
Do you have these books in your library? Have you not selected an active cover, so it's showing your default selection?
(Since you have a private cover, I can't check on those questions myself.)

>2 gilroy: Sorry if I wasn't clear. This is what I mean by generic covers. Ones generated by the book seller that the cover was sourced from. (Other people flag them as not covers, so I did as well. Let me know if that's not correct)
And this is what I'm seeing on the cover flag voting page. This cover is one of the generic ones I flagged, but it shows as a LT default cover:

Yes, it is frustrating that those don't render as such on the voting page.

ETA : they even say they're not an actual cover. So I don't think it's wrong to flag them as such. (But I will stop doing so if staff decides otherwise.)

>3 zombiecat: Ah, if it shows that on the voting page, I want to say someone did some separating and those covers are no longer valid at the selected link. Which then makes them a no vote because the default cover is still a cover.

>5 gilroy: Essentially no! Somehow they simply don't render on the voting page (and get replaced by the default cover there) even while they are there when you check the available covers on the work page.

ETA : personally I consider that a bug.
