Multiple release entries (reposted)

I've only recently joined BookCrossing, and one of the 1st things I did was go thru the lists looking for books with multiple journal entries to see what has happened to them. I noticed that many books with multiple entries have perhaps one registration entry, then anywhere up to 4 identical release notices by the registrant. It's as if the registrant is putting in the release entry several times, perhaps because they aren't sure it's being entered properly. These multiple entries are skewing the data. Is there any way they can be cleared up? Awesome Aud

With over 18,000 books now, it's impossible to manually remove duplicate journal entries or release notes that some members make for whatever reason. Don't worry about data being skewed - they're just journal entries, and making multiple journal entries on a book is not discouraged.

Try searching for the higher ratings. That's what I do when I am looking for book choices.
