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.

ever since the introduction of bookshelves into the twitter rewards program, I have been denied the rewards on the simple reason that I failed to add books on certain days...but I had already added them. Maybe you should improve your website to ensure one can't post a reply before the book being registered on the shelves.

I've been wondering if the issue could be with the book being added to the 'not interested' shelf. What with that shelf being hidden. :eusa-think:

That doesn't make a difference. It will still count as it being added to a shelf. At least, it's worked for me.

I keep losing all of my points because of twitter slip ups. I'm tempted to just never enter the twitter stuff just to avoid losing over 100 points when the website slips up.

I had the same problem and it is very annoying. If you do the work to help promote the books and authors, you should be paid the promised amount!
