How does this site work?

(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.

I keep a bunch of tabs open because whenever I navigate away from my history or score for example I have trouble finding it again. I find the site quite difficult to navigate through.
Does anyone else have this problem?

This thread explains the site: Links and Info for New Members.

It can be a little confusing, but members usually get the hang of it.

The best navigation tool is the right hand drop navigation menu.
The various options there will take you to just about every important page on the forums.
You can get to your Review Team page from there, and from your Review Team page you can get to the various tabs, such as your score tab.
You can get to your shelves from there.

It's literally the #1 best tool for getting around on here.
You're nobody's rainbow.

You're nobody's princess.

You're nobody's doorway but your own, and the only one who gets to tell you how your story ends is you.
