Crowdsourcing is the strength of XRay, but also its weakness.
It was my understanding that the offline x-ray info that's included in the ebook file was added by the publisher/author, and then Shelfari only came into play if you click on the Shelfari link to view more detailed info.
Are you saying that publishers only have the ability to include Shelfari data in the offline file? They can't add their own custom info without having to edit the Shelfari website?
