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.
The Researcher wrote:Hi. I got my review published recently and was requested by the author to share it on other websites like amazon, goodreads etc. Can anybody guide me how to do that here. I have to paste the URL or the full review should be copied and pasted. Please tell in details. Thank You
From what I understand from the Reviewer Guidelines that is not allowed. You could post a link to your OBC review using its URL. You might also send a message to Scott asking for permission since the author has asked you to share. Copied below is the information from the guidelines regarding this:
The review must be original, meaning you cannot plagiarize part or all of it. The review is exclusive to OnlineBookClub.org, meaning you cannot post it on another website. If you have a blog or personal website, we hope you post a link to the review on your website, or you can feel free to write a different review of the book on your website, or summarize the review in different words on your website. Reviews will be checked for plagiarism or violations of the exclusivity agreement, and violations will result in being booted from the program and revocation of any payments. Please note, you are being given a book for free that is normally sold for a price (and in some cases being given an additional monetary payment) in exchange for writing the review and giving it exclusively to OnlineBookClub.org, and we may have specific arrangements with the author/publisher regarding when, if ever, and in what ways we will publish the review, which is why it is important that this system isn't undermined by the review being something that is already published elsewhere whether because it was plagiarized illegally or because it has been distributed in violation of this agreement. If you really want to publish the review elsewhere such as on a personal blog, you can contact me after it has been published publicly here for permission to be exempt from the exclusivity agreement which I will generally be happy to give, especially provided you link back to the original posting of the review.
Authors should contact Scott in regards to any off-site use of official reviews.
