Hi Scott,

I received an email asking me to send my book to a reviewer but the address was missing: [...]

Can you help with this? Thanks.

I am looking into this now.

-- 31 Jul 2012 12:28 pm --

This was caused by a typo I made in the program script, which I have no corrected.

-- 31 Jul 2012 12:39 pm --

I have contacted the reviewer and asked the reviewer to change the address.

I will also be contacting the other reviewers whose addresses were not correctly saved due to this mistake of mine.

I will also be adding to my own auto-reports the action of confirming all reviewers who have an address listed have one that seems valid, e.g. not just the word address.

Thanks for bringing this issue to my attention so quickly.

Thanks, Scott. I see the address now but no reviewer's name. Is that not to be put on the address label?

Hi Scott,

I see the address now, but no reviewer's name. Was that purposed omitted?

-- 31 Jul 2012, 15:11 --

Ok. No reviewer's name? I see an address.

Just write Resident as the name if you can.
