Suggestion for Scott

(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.

Hey Scott and other admins (i apologize I don't know all your names)

I was reading some replies today and i liked some of what was written but there were no words to describe me being impressed by the reply. So i thought how about we have a (+1) or a 'Kudos" system where people can express their like to the replies of others via the kudos buttons or (+1)

Thank you for the suggestion.

This has been suggested before, but we would rather members actually respond, even if it's just to quote and add a thumbs up.
We don't want to make this someplace where members ever have to worry about how many (or few) likes they've received. :tiphat:
If we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.

We've all got light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That's who we really are.

Oh, your answer makes sense. I thought the forum would consider a thumbs up post as spamming but I understand your policy now. Thank you, both for responding :) I am loving the community here!

I am a keen reader of motivational or self- help books, but they are categorised under non-fiction books and at times it's difficult to pick your kind of books.I suggest that the non- fiction category be subdivided into other sub-categories like
1.memoirs
2.motivational/ self-help etc

Thank you.
