Author page not displaying reviews or ratings

This post was last modified: 28 Mar 2014 10:46 AM by davidwailing.
I've just noticed that on my Amazon author page, all the reviews and star ratings for my books have vanished! 
http://www.amazon.co.uk/-/e/B005GWX7RA

The reviews are still there on each book's page, thank goodness, but the author page no longer displays them, either in the UK or US. Checking a few other authors' pages, I find it's the same for everyone.

Am I only just noticing something that's been missing for ages? Or is this a new development? And is it the same for everyone?

RE: Author page not displaying reviews or ratings

I'm confused. What is it that you can't see? I can see ratings and review count.

Are you on your author page?

Edit - I've just looked on yours and they aren't there - they are for each separate book, of course.

RE: Author page not displaying reviews or ratings

Here's what it looks like for me. There used to be ratings and number of reviews alongside each book, but now they're gone.

RE: Author page not displaying reviews or ratings

I'm seeing the same on David's page and my own page on .co.uk. On .com for me it's showing with the ratings/reviews.
