I cant join the FB group?

(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.

Is your account new? If so, that is probably why. :tiphat:

You have to wait a while as new FB members are not admitted to the OBC group.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.

I'm also having problems while joining the FB group. Everytime I send a request for joining, it cancels on its own. I even tried to cantact the Admin, but still no reply came from him. Is there any eligibility to join the group or what?

New profiles are not accepted. You need to wait if your profile is new or contact the mods there.
