Change forum name?

I'm wondering if it might be a good idea to change one of the forum names. It seems like so many new people post their first review in the review team support forum instead of the private forum. I realize that if they just read the top where it says this is not where you post reviews that they should be able to understand that, however it happens on a daily basis. Why not make it a little more clear? I realize I'm new to this site myself, but it seems like this site could be made a little more user friendly. It amazes me the amount of people that apparently love to read and want to review books, but they can't read through the guidelines page enough to do a correct review. So I get that you really shouldn't have to change anything, but maybe it would make things a little less confusing. Just a thought.
Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book.
