It’s a Merge-Fest!

Thank you to everyone who’s merged an author or two since we launched the feature on Monday! The response has been excitingly wonderful – there have been about 200 merges run, with a record 31,246 edits for the last 7 days! And, not just by staff!

You can see all the merges as they happen from the new sub-section of Recent Changes:

I must say I was quite pleased to find Somerset Maugham in need of so much merge love. Check out all his alternate names! It’s so satisfying when you find a juicy one like that.

Onward!
