Quotes and Guides

(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.

IMPORTANT: The Public Suggestion Box is NOT for discussing issues with the Review Team. If you are a reviewer and need help, please first check the Review Team Page and then if you still need help use the Review Team Support Forum. If you are an author and need help, please first check the Author Dashboard and if that does not resolve your issue use the private contact form. For reference, there is a contact link on every page of the website.

To ensure the above procedures are used, posts by new members in the Suggestion Box will be held for moderation.

There are over 240,000 members at OnlineBookClub.org. Following the proper procedures to get help or make suggestions actually helps us help you much faster.
Forum rules
Please do not discuss issues related to the Review Team in the Public Suggestion Box, as we prefer to deal with Review Team issues privately. If you have an issue or question related to the Review Team, please first check either the Author Dashboard (if you are an author or publisher) or check the Review Team Page (if you are a reviewer). If you are a reviewer and you have a suggestion, you can post that in the special private Review Team Support Forum.

This another new member (kinda dumb) question, but how does one add quotes to their posts here? Manually?

Also, clearly since the site is too big to navigate and so many rules, as funny as this is gonna sound, is there a Guide to how to better navigate? -_-"

Do you mean a signature?

You can add a signature on your UCP. However, you may be too new to have that option yet.

As for navigation, this thread has links to important pages/threads.
Otherwise, just wandering through the forums is the best way to become familiar with the site. :tiphat:

Is there a way to know how long it'll be till the option is available to me?

Umm.... What about people who can't spend enough time to wander around yes forums?

Wouldn't it be better to have a Guidelines forum, one that can only be changex by the moderators? (so rule changes can be applied and people not flogging there to post complaints). All the info newbie's need bundled up in one place (like the reviewer team guidelines) so that people can do what they came to originally do here and leaving hands for other important issues on the site than leaving it to be a big scrambled mess?

That's why I linked to the Links and Info for New Members thread. I suggest giving it a look.

If you think of something specific that is missing from it, just suggest it and we'll take adding the info under consideration.

Actually becoming familiar with the forums is really only an issue for those who want to spend time in them, so spending time in them wouldn't be an issue. :tiphat:
