Extreme Makeover: Website Edition

(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.

Extreme Makeover: Website Edition

The Online Book Club is a portal into the most intriguing collection of books and book lovers. The concept that you've created, Scott Hughes, is ingenious and I think this website should reflect its brilliance. Just as we value consistency in our books and reviews, we should hone the website's overall design, icon styles, spacing, padding and alignment. Since writers and readers alike relish creativity, we should sculpt the aesthetics of the website with an engaging carousel banner on the homepage, parallax scrolling and countless other innovative design techniques. The potential of this website is endless and I believe it deserves attention. Not only our attention and that of the design wizards, but also the attention of every book lover ever born. This website is the book cover by which the worth of our enterprise will be judged. It is the riveting title or compelling synopsis that could capture the attention of all who happen upon it. I will close with the words of Ursula K. Le Guin, "The unread story is not a story; it is little black marks on wood pulp. The reader, reading it, makes it live: a live thing, a story." To the Creator of the Book Club, my humble suggestion is to bring this website to life.
