Giveaway Entry Trouble

(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.

What do you mean? The submit button when you are trying to post your comment to the review for BOTD?

Have you commented on the BOTD's review? It would only change if you did comment.

I don't think you did. You should have posted here: Official Review: The Devil's Astronaut by Noah Bond. I don't see your comment there.

If someone posts while you are typing your comment, once you hit submit, the system will tell you that so and so posted, do you want to change your post. And you have to submit again. If this happened and you didn't submit the second time, your comment never actually got added.

Thank you! I think that is what happened, but I was not paying attention. I will next time though. :)

Sorry I couldn't tell you that yesterday :(
I didn't really know from your original post what was going on. It's easy to overlook because the screen refreshes. Just make sure you see your on post listed as the most recent one submitted and you'll know it went through. Then when you are on the Giveaway page, it should show your entry for commenting.

Same happens to me. I've had it happen twice (maybe three times, once quite a while ago) so I gave up trying to post on those. I assumed the moderators never liked my comments and stopped them from posting but didn't know why.
That said, thank you from me too for the info and advice!
