Big Appearance Changes -- Bear with us!

(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.

Since the update, I've not been receiving notification emails. I get the BOTD announcement, but none regarding PMs and whatnot. I've also noticed that I don't have the one click option to subscribe to forums/topics, or to bump topics?



Do you mean where you set up your profile? If so, you can find a link between the FAQs link, and the PM link :tiphat:

Ditto!

Same here. But I love the new look. Especially the navigation bar on the top right.

I had the same problem, but now it seems to be fine. All I did was go to my UCP to Board Preferences. I didn't chance anything, but I did hit submit again and got a whole slew of email notifications. So I think it works now. It might just need a reminder since the website has been recently updated. Hope this helps and works for others! :)

It works fine now without me doing anything.

I fixed the notification email issue. I think all the unsent notifications had been saved in the queue and were sent out yesterday.

I've been away for awhile, and I was completely impressed when I signed in (finally!) today. This site looks better and seems to be better organized, and information about how to do things seems much better as well. I guess that's my word of the day--BETTER! Thanks for all the work you're doing!

It's already been over a month since the update.

If you notice any pages that do not look good or are hard to navigate or seem glitchy or whatever, please let me know. When reporting the issue, please let me know if you are using the mobile version or the desktop version of the website.

The new version is expected to by much better on mobile. So if you are on mobile and having any trouble or notice any pages that don't work well on mobile, please let me know.
