BOTM Forum Points

(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.

BOTM Forum Points

Post by CommMayo » 16 Dec 2017, 11:42

Has anyone else had all of their point for commenting on the 2nd and 3rd most recent BOTM forum disappear in the last few days? It looks like mine were converted to eligible older post points and the others were zeroed out. The BOTM links are also wrong on my score page. Seems like some sort of coding or update issue. Anyone else experience this?

My links seem to be correct. I think my score is correct as well. Have you refreshed your score? If that doesn't work, you might want to contact Scott.

In the past, I have sometimes found a lag time when those 3 MOST recent points are updated. Is it possible that they are correct now and the previous 3 MOST recent in your score were actually the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th months?

There should be a red box on top of this forum (the Public Suggestion Box) saying that this forum is not for discussing issues regarding the Review Team. There is a private support forum dedicated to the Review Team.

In any case, there was a temporary issue with BOTM posts not being counted for the last two books. It has since been fixed. If you don't see the points, simply refresh your score.

My apologies, I saw that warning after I posted.
