Idea: Sharing on YouTube

(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.

Idea: Sharing on YouTube

Post by Yssimnar »

This is just an idea, but I have done some art book reviews on YouTube that have gotten traction in the past. It would be cool if I were to summarize a book on the YouTube channel with a link to the full written review and get popularity points for doing this. They take lot of work, but I have over a thousand hits for a couple of my book review videos, yet the channel isn't even well established.

I think this is a good idea if adopted.

May I ask what is the name of your youtube channel? Reviewing books on youtube sounds interesting.

I don't have a channel for reviewing books, but I was thinking about starting one. I have reviewed a few art books on my current channel which is more about art and painting.

To read or not to read? That's not even a question!

I think this would be a great idea, but not as a requirement. Not everyone might want to, bea able to or be good at or creating Youtube videos. So to have that as a requirement for moving up the levels would be quite unfair to some, in my opinion.

I think it is a good idea but it will take a lot of courage for me to actually go through it.
