NEW FEATURE - Free/Discount Book of the Day!

Starting March 1st, each day we will announce via email a book that is either FREE or on a temporary sale at a great discount price. These are not going to be your average free books. They will be incredible deals on well-rated books. You do not even have to read the books during the promotion; you can download them while they are free and read them at some later date. Sign up so you do not miss the opportunity to build up your library with premium books for free.



Sorry, this proves you are human.

Policy on necro vs new topic?

(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.

I'v learned that it's bad to necro an old topic (post in a topic that hasn't been posted in in a while), but it's also always better to post in an existing topic rather than creating a new one.

What are your policies, is it ok to post in a topic that hasn't been posted in, in let's say a month, or should I just forget talking about something all together (ie. a specific book etc)?

Nothing wrong with resurrecting an old topic, if you have something to add to it, but as you rightly point out it is always good to do a search before starting a new topic .... just to avoid duplication.
