Adding Topics

(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.

Adding Topics

Post by MsH2k » 13 Oct 2019, 16:01

This time, I have decided to just ask for what I want... :D
I would like to suggest adding the ability to create a forum topic on any book - or at least on a book that has been BOTD. For example, Of Illusions and Ink Spills is a book of poems, and it would be great to discuss our favorite poem and other thoughts we had on the book. When you go to the forum for this book, you only see a listing of reviews without the ability to add a topic. There is a poetry forum, but that is too vast for a focused discussion on one book. I found this same type of situation with Corners, a book of 25 short stories that has been BOTD in the past. Perhaps there is already a way to achieve what I am requesting, but I am not aware of it. Thank you for any help.

You can comment on the reviews or discuss the book in the appropriate forum. This thread explains it: Topic Creation Guidelines.
In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you." (Mortimer J. Adler)
