Idea for new Forum!

(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.

Idea for new Forum!

In this new idea for a forum, people can nominate books for various award categories such as Most Suspenseful, Most Adventurous, Most Exciting etc. The book with the most nominations will be awarded with the award and the members can discuss about the book in the forum. This will give a new platform to publicize books. The BOTD and BOTM do publicize books but what if a person wants to read a new book from an author which people consider as the Most Engrossing Book? A book which gets nominated can remain in that category for a month or so. There can be also other awards such as Most Complicated Character, Bravest Character, Funniest Book or Character etc.

Not only this, the forum can also be used to discuss books and authors which are winning awards in the international level. We can select some international awards such as Booker Prize etc and add sub forums for each award and refresh it whenever a new book wins the prize. This will also make the many users in this site aware regarding which book or author is winning the most prestigious awards for books and authors in the world.

Do post your comments on what you think about this idea and also if there are are any other suggestions.👇👇😊.

Thanks!!!! :tiphat:

I like this idea.

What I need to move forward is a complete list of all the different award categories.

I like this idea! I think it will work as long as the categories are one that readers are interested in. It involves the community and goes beyond just the regular award winning recommendations. I can't wait to see how this develops!

I hope nobody minds some brain storming!
I'd like to suggest 'best cover', and best 'lgbt+'.
Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.
