(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.

Is it enough to "add" and "save" the review or BOTD to my Pinterest Board, which I have designated for a bookshelf? It seems like when I select my own review to promote, it is a fairly generic ONLINEBOOKCLUB graphic - whereas it seems as if some others feature a book cover. Is there a way to make each of my review shares on Pinterest distinctive?

Sometimes Pinterest will give two or three other possible icons. Did you try a different icon for it to see if it will link to your book as you say? The same thing happened to me once when I was trying to share a book of the day. Onlinebookclub.org said I lost credits because though I shared the book, the icon I chose didn't link back to the book, but to the site.
