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.

BOTD. Why am I getting disqualified?

Post by LaurenHaupt » 14 Jul 2018, 07:00

I have been doing BOTD and I keep getting disqualified. I've been told my replies are vague. They are not. My social links are working just fine. I've tried to appeal it and was denied. I did not get any reason why it was denied. Anyone else having the same problem?

BOTDs comments should be specific to the book and demonstrate that you sampled the book/read the review, or at least read the blurb and not just general remarks about wanting or not wanting to read the book. And as you appealed, you should have got a reason for the denial. This is not the place for complaints. I am locking the thread.
