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.

Aloha,

You have blocked my review a couple times. I can read the insructions. I am doing as you requested. It still being deny.

I have three disabilites. Can you tell me exactly what is wrong, please? Most folks like us need a tutor/teacher to help us improve our work. I understand that is not your job. I am asking, please. Only want you to write what wrong. Again, I do your suggestions and get denied. Blessings.

Mahalo,
RM Griffin

It is Automatically Blocked because you didn't follow the Guidelines. The book title should be in italic print. Also, you should use the format X out of 4 when giving the rate (ex: I rate this book 3 out of 4 stars), and not like you did. It should be put in bold.

Also, you should remove all the details (starting with User avatar) from your review. Good luck!

Aloha,

Mahalo! I think that with folks having different paths in life, can sometimes see things different. Not being rude.

Blessings?

Aloha,

I tried on my I phone and Mac laptop. I cannot italicized the title in the subject book. I can bold in the actual writing, but again not in the subject box.

What would you like me to do, please?

Good luck! Keep in mind that the review has to be a minimum of 5 paragraphs and 400 words. If either one of these guidelines, or the x out of 4 format, is not adhered to, the review will be automatically blocked.

Oops...I meant to write x out of 4, not x out 4! I just corrected it.

Sorry your going through this. It good to know I am not crazy!

Very good that you inquired. It knocks the grade badly.

I still cannot do it. I just gave up arguing about it.

PM Scott. He the web designer. I am not sure how to forward this. I think only moderators can. Sorry.

I am sorry I cannot help. I am going to try. I have to use Windows to sumbit this with the italics. For me, it harder to get access to Windows.

It does not work on the I- Phone. Warning- Do not use Windows on the Mac. Mac can use Windows in a certain way. However, if Windows is having a virus, you can possibly get it on your Mac.

I hope you get this resolved soon. Again, sorry I could not help you.

The rating doesn't need to be in the subject box. Only in the actual review. I don't italicize in the subject box, only in the review itself. My reviews don't get rejected.

I would think it would be very hard to write a review and properly edit it on a phone. I personally couldn't do it properly on such a small screen.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.


Grateful to get the opportunity to explore new books with those in the OBC.

Italiacs do not work in the body either. I Phone 6 and up have a large screen. So do many of later models of the later models of Samsung have a large screen. ?

You need to join kindle unlimited to get it, but only USA citizens can join it. If you are unable to get KU, you need to quit the book via your Update tab. Please make sure to pick only formats you are able to get and mark your Preferences accordingly.
