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.

The button should be on the upper-right-hand side of the post. I think you can only edit the post for an hour or so after you post it.

Glad I saw this--I never have noticed that button, but in the few times I've looked for it, it was much later than an hour after I posted.

Which brings up the question I have now--one of the editors who checked my most recent book review noticed an error that I would like to have corrected. Apparently there isn't a way I can do this myself, so I'm wondering if someone can do it for me. Is that possible? Thanks!

I think you can ask one of the moderators to make a correction. I did this a few months ago when the author brought up the fact that I wrote the main character's last name wrong. The name was O'Shea, but I got it stuck in my head that it was O'Hara (a more common Irish surname).

Thanks--I've sent a request to the moderators. It's embarrassing enough that I made the error--but it gives readers incorrect information, and I hate to point them in the wrong direction.
