Hello,

I know I don't usually post anything in this forum - that's because my IQ is high enough that I can usually figure most things out - but I've got a curiosity that's been bugging me for a few months now. Since it's probably a misplaced page title or a glitch or something & it hasn't been patched since I first noticed it while logging into KDP from the NIH campus in Bethesda (Maryland, where I was a research participant up until mid-July), I decided today would be a good day to let somebody know about this possible glitch on the KDP website...

Anyway, the sales "Reports" page, which lists our payments, pending royalties, etc., has the following for its title:

"Kindle Direct Publishing Terms of Service"

...Yet the page does not contain any TOS documentation in it.

I figured once somebody, anybody, let the website operators know about this issue, maybe it could be corrected to display the proper text in the title of that particular page/page group, something such as:

"Sales and Royalties Reporting | Kindle Direct Publishing"

Also, I couldn't find a proper place to stick this issue into, so I'm posting it in Feedback.

Thanks in advance for correcting this glitch.

PS: I'm no longer in Maryland. FYI. This issue is not limited to Maryland.

Unfortunately, this is a forum for authors, and Amazon staff rarely visit. You might have better luck using the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of the page.

Well, I admit I'm not very smart since, of course, I engage other authors on the forum, but I do have a suggestion. If look at the bottom of any page you'll see KDP Terms and Conditions. Why not click on that? Every time I want to check some specific item in the TOS, that's where I go...and there they are.

This is the most pompous post I've seen in a while.

I don't have this issue, so perhaps KDP are only targeting people with high IQs?

Oh wait, that would be me as well. So nope, it's only you.
