Posting Comments on Book Reviews

(Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

IMPORTANT: The Public Suggestion Box is NOT for discussing issues with the Review Team. If you are a reviewer and need help, please first check the Review Team Page and then if you still need help use the Review Team Support Forum.

For reference, there is a contact link on every page of the website.

Good day. Please how long does it take for my comment on a featured review to be posted on the forum? And what guidelines cause a comment to be posted or not posted? Thank you.

Do you mean for posts that are held for moderation?

If so, the time varies, but it's nearly always under 24 hours (24 hours or more only happens when there is an excessive backlog), and the reasons for posts being disapproved are if the posts are spam, overly generic, off-topic, in all caps, not in English, etc., etc. :tiphat:
We are temporary creatures, and we know it--that's why we fear the dark, after all, that's why we build walls and light candles to keep it out.
