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.

Reviewer verses Author

Post by mac83 » 12 Sep 2018, 12:27

Hi All,
I was interested in learning more about submitting a book for review, but had been doing reviews myself. I was just curious about learning more, but now my account is set up for as an author submitting a book. Does anyone know how I get my account to back how it was? I can't pull up my reviewer score or the guidelines any more. Thank you!

Mindy

You have to resign from the author group via your user control panel on the groups page.

When I go into the control panel, there isn't an option to resign from the author group. I can click to be a reviewer and join, but it says I'm already a member. I'm not sure what to do lol.

Down at the bottom there is a select box that when you click on it has the option resign from selected. Click on the group you want to resign from and then choose that and then choose the option to resign and then click the button.

I want to resign from the author section of it, but that is listed within the reviewer section. I still want to be a reviewer. There isnt a separate box to check to just resign from the author part.

There should be a little radio button out by the author section that you click on before selecting the resign option.

There isn't. Thats is where I am running into the problem. I thought it was something with using my phone so I logged on the computer and there still isn't anything beside the author section that I can click.

You may want to send a quick message through the contact page and one of the admins and assist you further. I've not personally had this issue so I'm only going by what I see on my end. I'm sorry you are having this problem.

When I go to the contact page it wants me to fill out the form to submit a book to be reviewed. I have tried different things. Is there a person outside the global group that I can email?

There is a an option on the main contact form to mark that you are not actually an author or publisher. :tiphat:

Wow. I had been on the contact page numerous times and thought I had to fill out the form to submit it all. Didnt realize I just needed to do that last box and it would solve it all! Thank you both for your help. I am back to being a reviewer!
