Topic Creation Guidelines

(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. If you are an author and need help, please first check the Author Dashboard and if that does not resolve your issue use the private contact form. For reference, there is a contact link on every page of the website.

---

To ensure the above procedures are used, posts by new members in the Suggestion Box will be held for moderation.

There are over 240,000 members at OnlineBookClub.org. Following the proper procedures to get help or make suggestions actually helps us help you much faster.
Forum rules
Please do not discuss issues related to the Review Team in the Public Suggestion Box, as we prefer to deal with Review Team issues privately. If you have an issue or question related to the Review Team, please first check either the Author Dashboard (if you are an author or publisher) or check the Review Team Page (if you are a reviewer). If you are a reviewer and you have a suggestion, you can post that in the special private Review Team Support Forum.

I appreciate all that you have made available to me as rules and guidelines for the operation of the club. Please be a little patient with me as I also strive to get on board with everything and everyone. I am a quick learner.

I am sure these guidelines will help a lot especially when it comes to following a discussion on a particular book in question.

Latest Review: Sigfried’s Smelly Socks! by Len Foley

If this is our first review (the review we do as a test run to see if we are able to keep reviewing) and it happens to be a duplicate, should we still post it under that topic, even though the Review Team Guidelines says to post it as a new one? I don't want to accidentally post mine in the wrong spot. Also, on the Review Team Guidelines, there is no direction as to what we should title our first review as. I would think it would be "Official Review..." but can you please tell me if thats incorrect?
