Getting WAYYYYYY too much spam from here

(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.

I've unsubscribed from announcements. Yet I still feel spammed by too many emails. Help?

What emails are you still getting?

You should note that signing up for some of the site's features supersedes that setting.
For instance, as a member of the Review Team, the site will email you about Review Team business (review opportunities, missing a deadline, etc.).
The daily giveaway also requires daily emails. :tiphat:

It is not spam when you sign up with a site. Legally, spam comes from companies or people that you have no relationship with.
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.
