(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.

Account Swap

Post by eelavahs-jay » 26 Sep 2017, 17:55

Hello, I'm a member of the RT who was on mobile and sort of accidentally swapped my account over to that of an "author" by sitting on my phone. Is there any way to reverse this?

I'll tag @"Scott" for you. :tiphat:

I figured it out. Thank you. I've fixed the issue :) I have another concern but I'm afraid this forum isn't the appropriate place to raise it.

Hi!

I have two different accounts because I didn't know the first would go through and then I saw it was active. I have posted two reviews on the first one and then I had no time to complete the assignment and now I've been given another chance, but in the meantime I started using my first account and would now like to merge them both and transfer the reviews from the one I have to the new one and only keep that one and delete the one with published reviews. Is that viable?

Thanks for your answer.
