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.

The new look is great - very streamlined.

I've noticed that while the address of the page for all of a member's reviews is shown, the link is not live. I think perhaps one has to click on a profile to find a link to all of the reviews. I wanted to ask if this link could be made live again so that the reviewer page is just one click away. IIRC this was so in the past.

On another small point, the reading device is now showing as a complicated alphanumeric code. Fixing this would enhance readability. Thanks.

I agree about having a reviewer link. It makes it easier to look at other reviews by a certain reviewer. I also miss when someone comments on something, you could see what their latest review was.

When someone comments, you can see their latest review to the right of the post, rather than at the bottom. It's still there ;)

Grateful to get the opportunity to explore new books with those in the OBC.

I don't see it at all. Maybe it's because I use my tablet rather than a phone or computer?

That might be the reason.

I also agree that I liked seeing each person's Review history link posted and would like it to return in that fashion.
