Exciting Changes!

(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.
Forum rules
Please do not discuss issues related to the Review Team in the Public Suggestion Box. If you have an issue or question related to the review Team, please check either the Author Dashboard (if you are an author or publisher), or check the Review Team Page (if you are a reviewer).

It's looking good. Be sure to give yourself time to relax and rest as needed. Rest is really important to keeping a clear mind.

Well done on all your hard work. I really like the few changes I've seen already. I used to go to go to my pc to do some things on the website, but I can now just use my mobile. Thanks for the improvements.

I love the new feel of the website!

I'd just like to ask though because I've been experiencing it for several times now. Whenever I try to log in the first time, I always get a message that I am being redirected to an insecure site or something. I just return to the login page and type my password again. Is this normal?

Thanks Scott for updating the website. I would be more grateful if you make the website comatible
enough with mobile so that I could submit my review via mobile phone without waiting for desktop or laptop computer. Like You can include option "choose file" in private review team forum page ,so that we could choose review file from our mobile folder and submit it from any place any time.But thanks again for your efforts.
Make your ideals high enough to inspire you and low enough to encourage you.
