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.

It will be removed if it ever goes to a vote for the BOTM again. :tiphat:

Will this apply to all the book suggestions that have been made into movies? Also is there a way to nominate book that is seen as not popular among bookshelves?

Books that have been made into movies are not allowed as BOTM, so any nomination that has been adapted is removed before voting.

There is no way to work around the popularity rule. However, some books get added multiple times by different members, so you can check for any duplicates and report them for merging. Once merged, any members who had an alternate entry of the book will be combined into the correct version.

(However, there hasn't been a voted on BOTM is quite a while, and I doubt there will be one any time soon.) :tiphat:
