(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.

Not all reviewers have access to paypal. Having other options for collection of payment would be of great help. The fees incurred by Online Book Club when issuing payment through means other than paypal could be covered by the reviewer's payment.

So if I were to receive $5 and my selected alternative for payment costs Online Book Club $2 then I would receive $3 and the $2 would cover the cost incurred by OBC.

I myself am amongst the unfortunate. I have a paypal account but I can't withdraw these funds that I'm receiving. I'm currently trying to find a way to receive these payments before there're returned due to me not collecting them. I doubt I'll find a way though, that is why I hope one day to be able to select an alternative method for receiving payment.

Hope the OBC team takes this into consideration.

The OBC has considered other options but decided they are not viable. It's been discussed in other threads in the past. If funds are sent back to the OBC from PayPal, they are not re-sent.
Life without a good book is something MrsCatInTheHat cannot imagine.
