Classic Short Stories Forum Suggestion

(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.

Classic Short Stories Forum Suggestion

Post by anaplasticCerebrum »

As I'm writing this, only moderators can create new topics on the classic short stories forum. I don't know the reason for this, but I feel like it's cluttering up the main discussion topic on that forum. I don't like scrolling through comments to find short stories I might not even be interested in. Maybe instead of needing moderator privileges to post, we could lower it to level 1 or 2?

If you mean this forum: Creative Original Works: Short Stories, members are able to open new topics there. If you are looking for short stories, this is the place to ask for them: Personalized Reading Recommendations

I see that currently, members can't open topics there.

If you have a specific topic you want to open, message me the details and I will open it for you.
