Spam?

(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.

If you have a question or problem regarding the review team system, whether as author or a reviewer, please use the private contact forum.

Hello I tried to pm Scott to discuss advertising rates, and it wouldn't let me send the message. It said it was "spam", which it definitely wasn't.

Hi there, it was probably the words you used, the forum is set to filter out words like Google and Amazon etc and mark them as spam, try either sending him a PM asking him could you discuss an issue about making the forum better or if you want just set up a new thread FAO Scott. :D

You shouldn't have a problem sending your PM now that you have some more posts. I am in the process of overhauling the review system at the moment. I will address issues regarding book promotion after that because that will be the main method for advertising a book.
Did you know ALynnPowers wrote books? I sure as naughty word didn't. Check it out!
