More points for reviews who do many reviews

(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.

For reference, there is a contact link on every page of the website.

More points for reviews who do many reviews

Post by anwidmer » 01 Jul 2018, 21:36

I wondered how its fair for those of us who have 11 reviews and 1000 views but since the average deternines the points im held back by each review i do. I feel like there should be points awarded for certain amount of published reviews.
What do you all feel?

The current system is fair. There is a lack of incentive if one no longer needs to participate in the forums, which helps other reviewers to know you and want to go look at your reviews.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.


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

I think it would be unfair to punish people who have less time to read. Popularity is something you have to work at. Posting comments on other people’s reviews will often result in them posting on yours and you build up a ‘club’ of reciprocal posters. It takes time but your averages will start to go up.
A thesaurus is necessary, essential, indispensable, vital, crucial and fundamental.
