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.

Reminder Bot Suddenly Tetchy

Post by H0LD0Nthere » 19 Apr 2017, 17:19

I'm a busy person.

I had read the book, updated that I'd finished it, and started to draft a review.

Then today, I get the e-mail reminder that the reminder bot sends out when we report that we read a book, but do not submit a review for a week. OK, no problem. Also a warning about the reduction in points. Again, no problem. If I can't control my time, I can pay for it with a points reduction.

But what's with the new paragraph at the top implying that I am planning to steal the book by accepting it for free and then not reviewing it? Is this really necessary?
